A lot of people have been against Islam lately and others are realizing that there are non-believers and are trying to correct them. What do you guys think?

  • Islam is being accused. Muslims are innocent.

  • Islam is encouraging terrorism.

  • People who bring harm to non-believers, are not true to Islam. If they were, they would know that in the Qu'ran Allah rightfully says, "Whosoever kills or harms an innocent human being, it will be as if they had killed the whole of mankind." Verse 5: Line 32 Islam is not a religion of 'hate and terror'. I would know...I am a Muslim and I am proud.

  • Islam has its extremists who take religion way too seriously. We have a lot of Christian extremists here in the US to, the only difference is that insane christians have the sense to not blow themselves up.

  • Ow no!!! to many Americans on this sight. The raced answer is actually winning. George bush was evil and killed 1000s of incident Arabs and he is American. Does not mean all American are evil.

  • Islam is a religion that survived for over 1400 years, growing each day and far away from dying, most people are too lazy to open the Qur'an and read it and judge muslim belief accordingly, so they prefer clicking that button on the remote and get their Info. from the media, and the media must always have a hero and a velan, and Islam is the lucky velan now a days.

  • I have an Uncle who lives in Israel and he has seen people dragged from their houses by Muslims for speaking out against Muhammad or refusing to convert (Mostly in the West Bank), this is a religion of hate and terror.

  • The suffering that any faith or belief causes is closely related to the amount of followers it has. I'd say raliens and flat-earthers are extremists, but they have almost no following and thus are not able to cause much harm.

  • A religion based on a book that encourages the killing of people who don't believe what you do, is probably to blame, if there are people killing in it's name.

  • As long as you have millions believing in a Caliphate, the religion is the source.

"Whosoever kills or harms an innocent human being, it will be as if they had killed the whole of mankind." What about if they don't consider infidels innocent?

Firstly, these people who harm an kill infidels are extremists. They must not be of the Islamic religion because we believe that anyone of any religion once you are a good person in the soul and you do good deeds and you pray, you will be granted a place in paradise. This is what extremists do not understand.

"because we believe that anyone of any religion once you are a good person in the soul and you do good deeds and you pray, you will be granted a place in paradise." Can you provide a source that proves this.

It is not a something that is proven by a source. You are Catholic Christian right. Take it like this. It is not something that should have a source to be proven. It is a belief of all true Muslims. Don't you have certain beliefs in Christianity?

The only belief that all christians believe in is jesus. There are several under the sect of christianity that I would say have incorrect beliefs. As a Catholic, I believe in the trinity, the eucharist, and that god is fair and just. There are many under the sects of christianity that do not believe these things.

I find that the religious groups are not the problem, but only those who feel superior over others and take action against those of a different religion.

Mathgeekjoe, "There are several under the sect of christianity that I would say have incorrect beliefs." Why do you think that they would have incorrect beliefs? They may have different beliefs but everyone is entitled to their own opinions and their own beliefs. They should be able to make their own decisions which will either benefit them or lead them wrongly. No belief is wrong except that some beliefs are taken extremely by certain people. You believe in "the trinity, the eucharist, and that god is fair and just". Others may not believe this. Some may believe that God wants infidels killed in Islam. They treat their beliefs much more seriously but at the same time, they take it to a whole new level of killing people in Islam but does this really mean that the religion is not one of peace? Additionally, people have their own beliefs, some may judge you for not having the same beliefs as the others. They may ask you why don't you have their beliefs. What will you say?

" All you have proven is that some members of Islam are peaceful. But you still haven't proven your claim that these extremist aren't members of Islam. You also point out the differences between individuals' beliefs and religion. Note that the question doesn't ask if Muslims are peaceful but if the religion is peaceful. If the question was asking if Muslims were peaceful, I assure you I would have voted differently.

"Why do you think that they would have incorrect beliefs? They may have different beliefs but everyone is entitled to their own opinions and their own beliefs." Did I ever say that they shouldn't be allowed to have those beliefs? No. I am a firm believer in freedom of religion, just because I believe their beliefs are incorrect does not mean that I think they shouldn't be allowed to have them.

"Additionally, people have their own beliefs, some may judge you for not having the same beliefs as the others. They may ask you why don't you have their beliefs. What will you say?" Typically when this happens(it happens fairly often) I argue why I believe the beliefs I have.

Joe, the entire religion does not support terrorism, just psychotic people.

The religion itself is not a terrorist organization.
