A Jihad of My Own This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

     I used to be one of those people after September 11 who would say “We should just kill them all,” meaning Muslims. Now I understand that a few bad apples can ruin a religion’s reputation.

I hope this article opened other teens’ eyes (like mine) so we can realize that all Muslims are not bad. Even though I saw those Palestinian and other Arab kids dancing in the streets celebrating what happened on that day, I know not all Muslims rejoiced, but that caused stereotypical judgments.
