Martina Devlin was disingenuous to state that "It is problematic that Islam is not fundamentally a religion of peace, despite its leaders frequently insisting the opposite" (Irish Independent, July 30).

The vilification of Muslims helps terrorists to achieve their aims of tearing us apart, sowing the seeds of discord and enmity and inflicting the scourge of untold suffering on humanity and the civilized world.
