Islam is no monster to Europe

Thank you for the front-page article ``Bosnia Plan's Division of Land is Under Attack,'' Aug. 30. As a Muslim, I don't understand why my religion is portrayed as the next ``ism'' (after communism). The quote by Gordana Knezevic in this article talks about the ``monster of Islamic fundamentalism in Europe.'' Can you imagine five-year-old Irma as this fundamentalist monster? I cannot. She represents the state of the Muslims in Bosnia, showing clearly that there is no ``monster of Islamic fundamentalism.'' Saif Patel, Lisle, Ill.
