Quit stereotyping Islam as peaceful...

The vitriolic response to the Legislature designating Sept. 24 as "Islam Day" is a troubling indication that Americans associate international terrorism with Islam. Gov. Linda Lingle remarked on a local radio show that her office had received "ridicule all across the country." She called the resolution "just an expression of them (legislators) being out of touch."

In fact, a Gallup survey last year found that 93 percent of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims are moderates, and the radicals condoned the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States for political instead of religious reasons.
This is a portion of an editorial in the Honolulu Star Bulletin whining about all the criticism (across the entire nation and some in their own Legislature) to their acceptance of some nonsense called "Islam Day" in that state. It's is the editorial. Let's look at those 93% "Moderate" Muslims, shall we?

which means that 305,000 Muslims living in the United States support suicide bombings.

…which means that AT LEAST 117,500 Muslims in the United States support Al Qaeda’s objectives, which are to destroy western civilization while converting all people to Muslim at the point of a sword, or kill us if we refuse.

…which means that 1,105,000 Muslims living in the United States are more loyal to Islam than to the country.

…which means that 1,410,000 Muslims in the United States think that “the Jews did it” or that 911 was some other conspiracy.

-25% of all younger Muslims in the United States support suicide bombings to defend religious beliefs.
The editorial claims in its byline that a "Crude Stereotype must be Overcome."

I agree...let's stop all this hogwash about there being anything resembling moderation in the Cult of Islam. The very basis of the cult builds its foundation on the Koran (which is a very radical, opressive, and bigoted wandering).
