We in the West slow to understand terrorists

During this "Season of Peace and Goodwill," terrorism hits Western countries once again - Sweden, Italy, England and America.

The Western world has been slow to understand the terrorists. The terrorist are the followers of Muhammad who received the message of Allah from the angel Gabriel.

Muhammad was visited by the angel Gabriel in a cave, the very same angel who had announced the coming of Jesus to the Virgin Mary in Nazareth some 600 years earlier. Gabriel made it known to Muhammad that he was to serve as the messenger of Allah. Subsequently, until his death Muhammad received through Gabriel divine revelations that were known as Quran (recitation). Muhammad was to terrorize those who opposed him. The followers have kept the legacy throughout the Islamic history, even today.

Do you wonder as I do: the angel Gabriel is the same who came to Mary and Muhammad. The Son of Mary became the "Prince of Peace." The Messenger of Allah turned out to be the "Prince of Terror."
