Islam tidak akan jelek walaupun di jelek2an oleh yg "mengaku" islam atau yang berusaha merusaknya dari dalam, baik arab, barat atau siapapun. saya yg tinggal di Arab dgn keluarga selama lebih dari 10 tahun yakin bahwa semuanya baik2 aja, polisinya, ulamanya dan semuanya. Cuma orang2 yang ingin mengabil keuntungan dari media lah yg mebesar2kan hal yang sebenarnya sudah jelas. semoga Allah menujuki saudara seiman kepada jalan yg diridoi, yg akan membawa kepada kebahagiaan dan keselamatan dunia & ahirat.
