The truth is that fanatical Muslim followers of Osama Bin Laden believed that what they were doing was holy and Godly, and that, after having committed these acts in the name of Allah, they would be blessed forever in the other world as righteous martyrs.
There are those who have walked upon this earth who were true martyrs, and literally gave up their lives to benefit others. The Islamic fanatics that perpetrated the horrendous acts of 9/11 were not martyrs, and, if there is a just God (and I believe there is), they are definitely not being blessed in that other world right now.
I know there are Muslims who are spiritual, kind, honest, and good. I hope they will stand up for whatever truth and goodness they see in their religion, and speak out against terrorists who insist on interpreting the Koran in fanatically disturbing ways.
