Of course, we all know Islam is a religion of peace....
If I were an Islamic person, I would be ashamed of my religion.

A lot of people said, Well, the building failed. That's true, but nothing is indestructible. The question is, why did it fail? In this case, as I've explained, it was the fire covering the whole floor in a few seconds that made this different from any other fire that anyone had ever designed for.
