Letters: Taking a stand on terrorism

November 16, 2012

Re “Gunman's brother denounces family,” Nov. 10

Abdelghani Merah's book, “My Brother, This Terrorist,” should be considered for a prize for the wisdom and courage exemplified by his denouncement of the hateful indoctrination to which he was subjected by his family of religious extremists.

What is odd, though — and what makes Merah's expression of outrage so noteworthy — is that so few other Islamists speak out against the intolerant adherents of their religion who preach hatred and incite the killing of innocent people in God's name. The world needs more people like Abdelghani Merah.
