People can't seem to understand that one group does not define a religion. I know several Muslims and studied Islam and it is a noble religion if you ask me.

i think that most who actually hate them are just scared of them.
anyone whit a rational mind wouldn't hate the people who believe in the religion. maybe the religion itself like any other religion. but not the people that follow it. (atleast not in general)

Not all of the religion is noble. Just like most religions. Every religion has their nasty areas.

When it comes to America, the media doesn't call it the war on Islam for nothing. There's a kind of paranoia regarding muslims in many places, especially the south. For the most part, it's because of how our media reports things/ignorant/bigoted people. Especially the fundies...

Media exemplifies the bad and covers the good, it's like saying all of Texas is bad because there is a bad guy there.

No, they demonise the state not because of that, but because of it being part of the Bible Belt.

Sure, take the minority that will sell your newspaper and represent the whole!

Screw the haters! I live in a region with 200 million Muslims, and I feel safer than in any other place I have lived in.

Is there a rationale behind your bigotry? You didn't write anything, just posted some ignorant pictures. Care to explain yourself, or have I simply decided to waste my time and effort, trying to make sense where there is an obvious lack?

At no point did I say that that was the majority. I wouldn't personally know.

Ex Muslims who have grown up Muslim in Muslim countries, however, don't seem to think that those are a small minority.

1) He's not a kid, but a college student. 2) Don't be a sarcastic *** in hope of avoiding the question.


Mosab Hassan Yousef isn't a Muslim anymore. Given that he worked for the IDF, and even reported his father, I'm not inclined to believe in such a biased source.

Pew Poll finds that 60% of Muslims are very or somewhat concerned about the rise of Islamic extremism in the U.S. â" almost as high as the figure for the general public (67%). Radical Muslims are a small minority, but not small enough.

We are humans. When we feel threaten, we dont stop and think "does this one is good or bad?". When i walk in a street in jerusalem and i see some arabic teens, i dont ask them "are you radicals?". I know that most of them are good peoples. I have arab friends. But when im in risk, i dont stop to ask. I go away.
And yea, some arabic teens have throwen rocks at me and some friends (one of them is arab himself).

When you in danger, you dont ask. You act.

I try to avoid hating people, but if anyone hated them, it'd be more than understandable. The minority of them are fanatics who have no respect for basic human rights, but even without counting them, there's still a majority of moderate people that, even if they are respectful people theirselves, they insist carrying on with considering as God's word an extremely dangerous book full of the cruelty and disrespect that creates the fanatics, even if it's in contradiction with their own values.
And all this was based on the assumption that the majority of Muslims actually respect human rights, democracy and the like, but I wouldn't be so sure of that: probably the majority of them is still favorable to things like forcing the veil on women and forbidding them driving.

I'm confused.. are you talking of christians or muslims now?

This is (imo) more likely to be a social/cultural phenomenon than an exclusively religious one. Muslims living around here are just as good people as others.
