Johnnie Hayes Posted about 1 year ago Islam. Is it a "religion for peace"? Do we understand it? Have we treated it unfairly? (With prejudice and discrimination?) I believe that we try to treat Islam fairly but when terrorism occurs then we start to panick and get extremists mixed up with normal Muslims. We know that Islam is a peaceful religion but we are easily influenced by the shocking acts of terrorism. This causes us to be more prejudice unconsciously of normal Muslims as we forget how extorted the views of extremist Muslims are compared to Islam itself.
