    Jul 18 2011: well in my opinion people just use Religion and FEELINGS in the use of their own agendas. like it is done with muslim extremest groups. in islam people can die for their religion, so the Master mind's behind the "BAD AND EVIL DEEDS use them" they brain wash them. i am a pakistani and i know religion is a very sensitive matter. it is moslty g0verned by the political agenda's.

          Jul 19 2011: Yes I've heard of those news before but they were all in the name Islam.Ironically, Islam never teaches the Muslims to die for the religion itself.Islam teaches the Muslims to live peacefully with everyone..To kill or be killed is just totally wicked and wrong.Do you understand what I'm saying here?

          Jul 19 2011: Then we should follow what the prophet always asks us to do : go back to the Koran and hadiths...

          "whosoever killeth a human being... it shall be as if he had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind..."- Koran, 5:32

          Jul 19 2011: "Better you try and convince those of your religion who are killing every day rather than me."

          Trust me, I'm doing all I can to convince those people that Islam is indeed peaceful.It's up to you to believe or not to believe.I shared it with you to promote a better understanding with you regarding Islam.I hope this clears the air around here.You have a nice day,okay?

          Jul 19 2011: " Muslims have to be peaceful." You know that not all of us are terrorists.

          " I just want Muslims not to kill Africans in Sudan,Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Kenya, Buddhists in Thailand just north of your border, Hindus in India, Christians in the Phillipines, Pakistan, Iraq, Egypt, USA, Europe, or kill any non-Muslim wherever they can."

          You may call them idiots but you can never accuse all Muslims of being like that.
          Would you stop stereotyping already...? You too have to do your part in promoting world peace.Your hateful comments are certainly not one of them.

          STEREOTYPING THE MUSLIMS.should I call this a lovely comment? Your comments are deleted because you are being unfair by stereotyping all of us into violent terrorists.You should know better than that.Plus, you should be rather rational about this not emotional.

          Jul 19 2011: Firstly, highlighting is not yelling.Secondly, I thought that I've told you before that I'm doing my best to spread to those extremists the idea that Islam is a religion of peace.Believe me,I hate them too.Instead of us fighting each other, we should discuss further ways to achieve global peace but with you being so offensive, I just don't know how to end this negative argument.

          Jul 19 2011: There have always been killings in the name of this or that religion, that doesn't mean there can't be moderately religious people who find those actions vile. Saying Muslims and then adding "some Muslims" in brackets doesn't nullify your clear stereotyping. You need only to look at Eastern Europe to see examples of Christian violence. But shall we blame all the Christians for it? Should we also blame Jews for the way Israel treat Palestinians? No, it's ridiculous.

          I'm sure Muhammad condemns all sorts of violence. But right here, right now, you're unfairly attacking his belief and so his comments are all justified. Telling him to take it on the extremists instead of you is not an argument.

          I'm no fan of religion, but I really don't like the 'learned all I need to know about Islam on 911' attitude some people have.

          Jul 19 2011: doesn't justify anything, just pointing out that religions are all show the same pathological symptoms. We can all point fingers at Al Qaeda and say "Islam is a religion of violence". But really, they all have been and all have the potential to be. All religions have their extremists.

        Jul 19 2011: Yeah, the saddest bit is that if Islam can survive for a few hundred years more, Muslims will shake off everything bad done in the name of it in the same way that Christians nowadays shake off the crusades, the inquisition and the KKK.
