Oh magomago, I used to be like you,being a Muslim man living in a western country I used to try and understand these attitudes, these blatant generalizations that never seem to stop expanding more and more and that raging hate that accompanies it. I typed up hundreds of pages through many forums, emails and letters trying to explain to these fools the magnitude of their generalizations! Just how many people they are judging and how many of those people they are labeling as murderers and terrorists are just people who go through their daily lives trying to make ends meet, provide the best life they can offer their children and be productive members of their society,and try to show those people how irrelevant and insignificant their knowledge of the real Islam is, yet no change that I can sense has ever happened. Not even one person turned around and said that he / she misunderstood things, or that he / she rushed to conclusions and that he / she is sorry for any disrespect they might have incurred on others.
The knowledge of Islam is available anytime anywhere in the age of the internet, those who want to know it's reality will go research it on the net, read about in books and or interact and inquire from followers of Islam like most of the nice,educated and sensible people do with me almost on a daily basis. Meanwhile, those looking for excuses to feed their hate also get what they want on the net, lies, things taken out of context, fabrications, rumor sites, watch sites, ANYTHING just as long as they feed this hate that is growing inside of them like a parasite that is soon to takeover them completely.
Let such people be, let them drown in the waters of their own ignorance and hate, verily Sommon Bokmon.
Knowledge of Islam? So, if Islam is so peaceful and friendly why are your people cutting off heads and strapping explosives to themselves and killing people "In the name of Islam".
Words mean very little. The actions tell the story. Islam, as a piece of text, may preach all the hand holding and peaceful actions in the world but the followers sure act differently. I dont care what the text says, I care how its interpreted and how the followers act based upon that interpretation. I think those actions speak for themselves. Defend your religion as you see fit. But it would be nice if "making ends meet" also included making sure the neck continued to meet the body......
They might ask the same about "Christian" Cruise Missiles, Gunships, and other Military tools.
Ah...didnt think so.
