Be Patient
"Invite (all) to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for your Lord knows best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance. And if you catch them out, catch them out no worse than they catch you out: but if you show patience, that is the best (course) for those who are patient. And you be patient, for your patience is but from Allah; nor grieve over them: and do not distress yourself because of their plots. For Allah is with those who restrain themselves, and those who do good" [Qur'an 16:125-128]

The final verse of this quote is a point for the "Religion of Peace". I decided to go back a bit and include some context. With this context it is hard to see anything but peaceful intentions and direct contrast of terrorist doctrine. Yes, there is the trademark paranoia here (their plots), but it still stands against the actions of UBL and his thugs.
