The people you see on TV are NOT Muslims! Its against everything the Muslims believe in. A very intelligent person once said "Those terrorists who you see on TV, they use Islam as an excuse for their stupid actions- because so many people are predujiced anyway!".
So just listen to yourself! If you get into the depths of what Islam is about, you'll just see how wrong you really are...

People hate Islam, not muslims in general

i have read the quran and i've read many of the accepted hadiths.
It was only after doing that that I came to have negative feelings about Islam

It is easy to claim that Hamas, al qaeda,the taliban, and their ilk are not Muslims as it relieves you of actually having to do anything about them. But the fact is, they ARE Muslims and you DO have to act to fix what is broken in your "religion." Sticking your head in the sand won't do it.

Because it is the terrorists & extremists who are following Muhammad's teachings. Islam wants to impose its own rukles on everyone. Practically every country that has a muslim majority is ruled by a totalitarian, fascist or in some cases neo-nazi regime.
Islam is incompatible with freedom & demopcracy. Muslims pay lip service to democracy whilst they are a minority. Once trhey achieve a majority they would be no different from Hitler and find a feeble excuse to ban democratic rights and impose sharia law. This is happening in Malaysia now.

Look, I'm not putting my head in the sand- I'm not disputing the hadiths can be taken wrongly. But these are EXTREMISTS!!!!! And how do you know I'm Muslim?! I could be any other religion in the world (not that it matters, because whats on the inside is what counts)! Islam is actually a very peaceful religion- though the wrongdoers are more emphasized that anothers. Every religion has extremists, its just that Islam's is morely emphasized. Muslims are the people who follow Islam- Islam actually means peace in Arabic. Think about this- the Crusades used the excuse of religion to kill- see? Every single religion in the WORLD has its bad branches. Islam may have had more than others. But torture in those camps, isn't exactly going to make the extremists happy, is it? I'm not justifying what they do- its despicable. But, why can't people understand, everybody has their bad points? And these bombers have more bad sides than others- Muslims were killed in the bombs too. There are Muslim victims, too.

The Crusaders were trying to recover the lands STOLEN by aggressive islamic armies. All the Middle East and Egypt etc was part of the eastern Empire, and was attacked and destroyed by moslems. They have always been aggressive and murderous, from Mo onwards. Saying that the bombers, who yell "allah akbar" as they explode, are not moslems, is dishonest and stupid. Why don't YOU try to stop them?

You seem to know very little about Islam or prefer not to find out.

Islam means submission, not peace, the Crusades were in response to Muslim expansionism.

Watch and listen to this if you can be bothered:

http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay...

Also read this:

http://islamqa.com/index.php...

The Koran states clearly that Islam is a "reform movement for the world." This means that they must convert everyone.

Islam degrades women by assuming that they are responsible for the lust in men, that they must be hidden, covered, and prevented from full participation in society. This is evil.

Patriarchy has worldwide been a disaster for human rights. Islam is the worst form of it.

Look at the cultural impoverishment which results when Islam takes over, as in Iran or Pakistan, once culturally rich regions.

Islam breeds Muslims who bomb, burn and raze churches/temples/statues. Islam breeds humans who cannot tolerate others but expect others to tolerate and respect them.... the list goes on

Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism .....these religions don't impose their 'holy verses' onto others and do not indoctrinate young men and women to strap bombs to themselves and kill innocent people, Islam is the only violent religion.

All through the ages there have been wars. Religion has been tagged on to most of them, and then people mistakenly believe that faith caused the wars. This may be the case in the Crusades, but thees recent wars are not at all about creeds, but land, food on the table, oil and basic human rights (or lack of them).

Some people want everything. They grab grab grab and turn their greedy hearts away from the cries of those they oppress. They bring shame and disaster on to their compatriots. They need rooting out by all the decent folk, for peace to ensue.

it is not really a good question,that's why most people don't answer.it would be a good question if you actually asked this to an extremist,i would like to know how they would answer this.not that i expect a decent answer instead of stupid excuses from an extremist,but still.but asking this to a non-extremist muslim is weird,ofcourse you won't get an answer.it is like asking a christian "if your god is so great,why doesn't he convert people,instead of sending people around to spread his word?is he so lazy that he can't do it himself?".see,it is just a strange question.this question is not a good example of what i am trying to say,but i still think your question doesn't have an answer,unless asked to a extremist.i mean,how can anybody answer a question of why a person you don't know does something?

Because Islam is a Faulty Cult.
90 Plus % of The Human race is Automaticly
against these Infantile women beaters.

They Treat Women like Dirt.
Mature men do not like that.

Then consider that their Idea of a good Education is to Read and chant the Koran.

Terriorists hate Islam , as they assuredly hasten the day when it Disapears beneath Nukes and Crusader boots.

NO MORE IMMIGRATION OF MUSLIMS TO ANOTHER PREDOMINANTLY NON-MUSLIM COUNTRY!!. ITS VERY SIMPLE. Muslim countries who hire foreign immigrants, and women are mostly RAPED!!! Muslim men have too much craving for sex wether because their women are getting too fat, or cant afford a dowry, or short supply of women or the Shariar, I dont care. But Muslim men craving for sex is too much that they even go to countries where they get contracted with venerial disease! Promise of 72 virgins shows their deprivation and short supply that drive them crazy!!

it is a good question to put to anyone who believes that God intervenes constantly in our affairs - and such people have to think a long while before answering, because it is a devastating question.
If you only believe in a First Cause, or Higher Power, or Great Architect, who started it off then gave us free will, the answer is that - free will, he WON'T help us at all.

I can't say I "hate" Muslims. I distrust them and I am disappointed that so few rise to condemn satanic behavior in the name of Allah. Their history is one one of disrespect for anyone who isn't more powerful than them, and to over react to the slightest imagined slight to their culture/religion.

If they would accept dealings other peoples and cultures on an equal footing. If they would support and allow freedom of conscious and truly believed in "no compulssion in religion" then I would be more inclined not to be suspicious of them.

I am very far from being a Muslim. I am a Christian through and through. I believe a soft word turnth away anger, and that all men are brothers and should love one another. I man I highly respect taught that until he was killed by his own people.

I wish Muslims a warm Ramadan greeting because I know it is their time to try and commune with God. I believe God gives to all men liberally, if they ask in sincerity of soul for what is good and righteous. Let them seek him, however they may that is peaceful and rejoice in their accepting what truths they will. If it is truth, and if it is righteous, then I can have no fear of it. Would you?

It is a sad thing, that man cannot seem to allow all men the freedom to worship who, how, and what they may so long as it hurts no one. That is my major objection to Islam -- they will not permit me or any others the same privelage they claim for themselves.

Idiodic. "Well, christians went on crusades..."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Vienna September 12, 1683.
(Long after crusades. Polish king saves Europe from Islam))

Battle of Tours, Charles Martell Saves France from Islam. October 10, 732 AD http://www.thenagain.info/WebChron/WestEurope... (thats merely a hundred years after the death of Muhammed Did Islam almost conquer the entire christian world. Do not think for an instant Christians invented this age long war.

Constantinople was christian.. north africa.. jeruselem.. entire former eastern roman empire. Here for are list of wars of islam. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wars_in_...

And Just because someone else does something barbaric does not mean you have the right to.,.. thats anarchy.. and it makes me physically sick when muslims try to justify thier murder by claiming others have murdered... they distort history.. they believe that because THEY did not do the first holocaust... that THEY HAVE A RIGHT TOO DO IT THIS TIME?>??? And because they did not Nuke.... they can nuke Now? And distorte and change history.. reality to make them out to be the perpetual innocent victims... from all eternity... it was only 300 years ago islam was dominating the world.. and they were dominating it and conquering it all before then.. and now they are angry because they are a third world society of beggers, thieves, wife beaters, miscreants, mass murderers, and savages. Get with the program.

Look, I'm not giving anything away about myself, but I DO know Islam- just like people know chocolate. The Quran does state- but not in those precise words. Think about it, for crying out loud-maybe people have taken it in the wrong way? Its rascism against Muslims- and Holocaust? Look, matey, but Holocaust was Hitler- AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT SAYING PROPHET MUHAMMAD WAS ANOTHER HITLER! JUST DON'T! And do you think all Muslims are scavengers? Doctors. Politicians. Lawyers. Solicitors, judges...Muslims! Not all of them, but think about it- if every Muslim was like that, then this world wouldn't have so much. Muslims have dedicated to society- algebra, for instance. Thats Muslim work! Any History textbook will tell you so! Of course some Muslims- okay, fine, the majority shown on TV- are horrible. Yes, fine, I'm with that. But just because a mean MAJORITY- and that only seems like a majority because its publicised more- doesn't mean the whole nations like that! Its like saying every single Londoner in the world speaks posh, just because the one's you see on TV do! Its discrimination.
And Jesus Is is right (only partly)- some people do treat God as a cripple, and that He needs their help. Thats where they go wrong. Its like a five year old drawing all over the wallpaper, because he thinks he's helping Mummy decorate. They're just confused, and aren't grasping on. Thats where they go wrong. Look, I'm not saying Islam's history is milky- its not. But not all of it is dark. Okay? Just broaden your horizons a bit more- I'm facing the facts, too- and you'll see not EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM is bad. I mean think of it this way- a Muslim mother of two. She gets killed, just because she's in a foriegn country, and everybody hates Muslims. She has never done an evil sin in her whole life. Is that just? If you think it is, imagine if it was your family. That would obviously change things- of course, automatically- but would it change for a Sikh? Hindu? Budda? Jew? Christian?

i dont think every muslim is bad. I think Islam is bad, and good people are stuck in an evil religion. Evil. God is no cripple God is merciful and generous he can create and destroy us at will yet he gave us spirit and free will to do good or bad as a choice for us.

Uh, okay, not exactly what I was looking for, but close enough. I don't think that Islam is bad- I do however think the extremists are the problem. They're the reason for the mass hatred of Muslims. If they weren't so out-going, then maybe things would be different. I definetly agree with not every Muslim is bad- but "Islam" means peace in Arabic. I think the extremists are letting so much religion get to their head.

The extremists are the good Muslims. They are following the teachings of Islam.
