Re “Cultures collide in Texas violence” (Page A1, May 4): In America, we don’t have a “Muslim” problem. That is a European problem brought on by the poverty and isolation of generations of immigrants. Radical Islam in America is generated today through the Internet.

Pamela Geller’s actions seek to create an American “Muslim” problem. The purpose of her Texas “contest” was to spark a violent response. “This event will require massive security,” she stated. The brave police officer who shot the terrorists stopped further bloodshed – blood that would have been on her hands.

Geller counted on violence. Now she wraps herself in the protection of the First Amendment. It was as if she started a fire in a crowded theater so she could shout: “Fire!” The violence was predictable: It was her goal.

In America we have a name for people who use violence as their political tool: terrorist.
