Letter to the Washington Post

I find it curious indeed that a majority of Americans have the opinion that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, per your article on "Negative Perception of Islam Increasing." After all, it was the American goverment that authorized the war on Iraq, even with no evidence (just mistaken beliefs) that Iraq was a threat to the USA.

And it was the American military that dropped thousands of bombs on this country and killed at least 30,000 of it's citizens (actually, the number is probably much, much higher) when Iraq did not attack or threaten us.

Who is more prone to violence here? Who has killed more innocents?
