Church Attack In Baghdad M
I think that the Muslim Brotherhood should work even more to show its support for interfaith relations. A lot of Americans believe the Muslim Brotherhood is a hate group. I think it is important to show that this is false and be an example of non-violent Islam to the United States. I would like to see more stories like this condemning violent acts against people of other faiths.
