  • It's all in the interpretation. The majority of Muslims are peaceful and thus we can assume that Islam is mostly a peaceful religion.

  • Islam is a peaceful religion. It does NOT it states that "kill all of those not following Islam" in the Quran. In fact it is haram to murder, or do any harm to any human being. Islam is mostly based upon science, physiology, peace, and goodness towards others. Those who do murder or kill because they say "it is stated it in the Quran" are wrong. They have been brain washed, and have changed the entire meaning of the Quran. The Quran is a relaxing, peaceful, holy book to teach you how to be a good person with a good mental state. Something as small as drinking and smoking is said to be haram in the Quran. Something as bad as killing never allowed in the Quran ISIS is not a representation of Islam, they are wrong and they are training people at a young age to believe it, that is why the bombing from ISIS is occurring. It is almost the same as the attack on twin towers. People hate others based on a religion, because something bad of their religion occurred. We are all human beings, we are all one. We should treat everyone with respect, and the kindness from our hearts. Those who kill for Islam are not real Muslims. Islam is a peaceful religion.

  • I am a Christian but I still believe that I have never seen such a peaceful religion as Islam. Now that I m declaring my opinion haters will raise there voices against it jst cz I m a CHRISTIAN

  • Not many Muslims hurt others. News only shows the abnormal things that get people riled up.

Although people in the religion may be peaceful, that doesn't make it a peaceful religion itself. Telling people to terrorize the nonbelievers is not peaceful whatsoever.

@dietorangesoda "none of the abrahamic religions are peaceful" hahahahaha, you really are a brainwashed liberal aren't you? You just hate us because we have "morality," whilst liberalism wants to abolish morality.
dietorangesoda says2016-09-22T23:50:22.2417208Z
No such thing as morality its completely subjective varies from culture to culture

@dietorangesoda So someone can come to your house and kill you and there wouldn't be anything wrong with it? I've heard this nonsense of "it's their culture" before, really morality is not subjective, it is objective.
dietorangesoda says2016-09-23T00:56:36.9854085Z
Haha of course it would not be right in this culture but cultures do differ for example in one tribe in papua new guinea in order to become a man one must make small cuts all over one's body to make what they call alligator scars obviously to us that would be horrifying but for that tribe it is simply how one becomes a man would u call it wrong?

@lil_misha, but the Quran does allow Muslim to lie to those of other religions, and they clearly lied to you about banning murder in their book, as it is in there if you read it. It also allows rape, too.

@justinwhite did you know that America just bombed Syria and Gaza mistakenly but no one said any thing why? Bcz its America not any Muslim country. Muslims are being killed by either Jews or Christians what will you like to say about that? I not only ask you but also all those who think it as terrorist's religion and all those who think that only Muslims are responsible for the destruction of the world.
Mharman says2016-09-23T20:18:49.5577916Z
@Sana-Nadeem: Why was the bombing a mistake?
Sana-Nadeem says2016-09-24T02:14:39.6830322Z
@mharman I don't know the detail but I was given a research topic on it and when I looked it up then I got to know that it was a mistake

Don't judge a whole group by the actions of a few
Mharman says2016-10-06T18:54:31.1699847Z
@DiEgO123100: Most of them do want Americans to die. Luckily for us, most of them are to just too scared to do it.
DiEgO123100 says2016-10-06T22:07:24.3537713Z
And there is a great example of someone doing that.
Mharman says2016-10-07T00:59:25.6607331Z
@DiEgO123100: Are you blind? Have you seen what goes on in the Middle East? I didn't say all are bad, I said most of them. As a matter of fact, I have a friend who is Muslim.
Sana-Nadeem says2016-10-07T16:33:30.0891720Z
@Diego123100 I agrre with u that don't judge a whole nation by actions of few. @mharman well I am happy that u have a friend that is muslim
DiEgO123100 says2016-10-12T21:54:38.7310802Z
And how do you know "most" muslims want americans to die?
Mharman says2016-10-13T01:20:50.3279848Z
@DiEgO123100: Have you seen the footage of Islamic mosques? Sure, you could argue they're only showing the violent ones, but what about the testimonies of former Muslims? Take Aayan Hirsi Ali for example, a woman who broke away from Islam after she saw what her religion allowed.
Rjupudi18 says2016-10-13T21:26:26.1964399Z
Funny how Muslims defend Islam but have no idea what the Quran even says.
DiEgO123100 says2016-10-23T16:31:35.4225830Z
The population of Muslims in the world is 23%. Don't you think if Islam truly promoted violence people would be dying left and right all over the world? And I'm Catholic by the way, so naturally, I wouldn't know what the Quran says because it is not my holy book.
Mharman says2016-10-24T15:31:07.1035950Z
@DiEgO1232100: So... You're defending a book that you know very little about? I know a lot about the Quran and that's why I voted no on this poll. You see the Quran DOESN'T say you HAVE TO kill those of other religions, it says you MAY kill those of other religions. In other words, the Quran leaves the choice up to the men who follow it. Also, people are already dying left and right from terrorism. However, the death count would be even worse if more Islamists chose to kill. But since it's a choice, most do not choose to kill, as they don't like the idea of killing. Still, any book that even ALLOWS for murder is not a peaceful book. Thankfully, many of the people who believe in it are.
DiEgO123100 says2016-10-24T21:56:39.5276201Z
No, I'm defending a religion. I meant you would see people dying on the streets.
