Many people take this religion to an extreme. They try to inflict violence to prove their "superiority" and some islamic groups such as ISIS will kill anyone who does not accept their religion.
Most major religions can be taken to an extreme. But in recent times, Islam has been used by most extremists as justification and motivation for their actions.
Well I am going to define religion as "a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects" source http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/religion. I am going to very loosely use left wing radicals a religion. According to statistics, left wing radicals commit 4 times as many terrorist attacks as muslims in the US.
if a person want to do an act of violence or terror, no religion will stop him, it is proven in the past amongst Atheists, christians , jews and the one in luck now the muslims.
No it is not ; far from it. I do believe like any Religion out there people interpret the good book the way they desire. Anything can be twisted and turned to fit the individual practicing that said Religion or good book. I do believe Islam promotes peace, love and acceptance with no prejudice. It is too bad their are a lot of knuckle headed people out there who choose to cast a negative light to it.
