My understanding of peace is for all nations to be united as one. To be united as one I believe all should be treated with equality and peace. In my own opinion I believe that everyone is one, people discriminate other cultures, faiths and individuals all due to the fact on how we visually see the person. How we " visually " see a person should not matter as it is the inside that should count. I am not specifically targeting a certain race of humanity I am just stating that no human on earth should be treated unfaithfully for what they believe in. In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights it clearly states that
In the The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 2 states clearly the following

Article 2:

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty

This paragraph states in a clear form that all people of every race world wide, is entitled to their own right of choice. They are entitled to believe in what they choose too and they have the freedom too. It is a human right to have the choice in what individuals believe in.

Today many people believe that Islams promote violence. In my opinion I believe it is fair for each individual are to have an opinion but with specific and valid evidence.

In the islamic law it states that the Islamic Law does promote peace.

It clearly states;

Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur"an. Qur"an 6:151 says, "and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully." (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted). 5:53 says, "" whoso kills a soul, unless it be for murder or for wreaking corruption in the land, it shall be as if he had killed all mankind; and he who saves a life, it shall be as if he had given life to all mankind."

From this paragraph above it states that murder is forbidden in the Islamic religion, why would the Islamic kill when it is against their religion?

People assume when there is a terroist bombing or hostage that it is straight away muslims. People say that they kill and it"s due to their religion? Islamics have the most peaceful religion. Muslims are very respectful and traditional it also clarifies in the website of

http://www.islamicity.org...

The history of Muslims, similar to that of many other communities, is not devoid of violence and warfare.

Devoid means: entirely lacking or free from

Therefore, if from a cursory reading of the history of Muslims makes people think that this religion is quite violent, the impression can"t be dismissed quite so easily, even though drawing conclusions about Islam on the basis of such impressions is simplistic and incorrect at best.

I accept the challenge. Islam is about peace not violence.

If you use the same criteria for any relgion they are also violent.

But we don't look at Christiianity as a violent relgion? Why? because there are no terriorsts that are Christian at large right now

We have to understand that if a few people take Islam out of context that does not make them Islamic. just like how crusaders weren't Christian because they IGNORED EVERYTHING in the bible that promoted peace and just looked at the bad stuff

Again if you hold Islam as a violent relgion every religion is bad
