Well, this is to all my friends out there who hate islam or maybe dont know much about it. So for the start let me remind you that islam doesnt at all teach terrorism or anything like that. There are some extremists who just practise it and every religion has extremists as you all know. Next, to tell you that 'politics' also plays a major role in this subject. Its just the politicians who for their sake have to blame something for their advancement.
Next, as a few of you might know that islam is the largest growing religion in the US. And the people who convert to islam only choose it after they have totally learnt about it. They love it and are happy with it. Like everything has good and evil, so some people prefer to doing good that is by following islam rather than following the evil like blaming it.
Thirdly, the rules written in the quran are not forced on anybody. They are just there for the benefit of the world and the society otherwise the world will be full of corruption which may lead to calamity.
Lastly, some this may seem funny to you all but even some american scientists have backed that quran is a book sent by god as it tells so many things about the future. So, my dear friends just give it a thought or may be search on the internet and well, please stop blaming islam.

Churchill certainly understood Islam. In his book "The River War," written as long ago as 1899, he wrote this about the followers of Muhammad: "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities - but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

What's with all the hate on here tonight? Islam is a religion of peace and justice. And those Muslims who practice the tenants of their faith properly are a blessing and light upon the Earth. There is not justification for "acts of terror" in Islam! The only way a Muslim may fight against others is to help the oppressed and to establish justice in the land. Muslims are not allowed to kill innocent civilians (women, children, elderly, and non-combatants.) And anyone who claims to be Muslim, though at the same time is doing any of these atrocities is not practicing Islam properly.

Okay. 1st of all What a pathetic question you have asked. Oh well....No wonder , you are so obsessed with Islam. If you are, then please try to be more keen to judge this religion, instead of asking for "no or yes"! That's so stupid of you...like if someone will say "NO they are not terrorists", and you'll gonna admit that, you dumb a**. You'll gonna believe on your lame damn perception anyways. You have blind folded your self. Seeing things like a baby. You all know the truth, that the world terrorism is not because of Islam. Guess what, Bush?? He is a peacemaker????...you stupid stupid bugger! He is the biggest terrorist!! Is he Muslim?? and..anyways.. there are also many examples and they are not Muslims!
In short you are such a fool. That;s all and its too late, minds of people like you, have been polluted, and sorry to say that, you are helpless.
Why dont you understand, you cannot judge a religion, or a whole nation with only few nasty people, who 'call' themselves the representative of that religion or country!
You are wrong!

Yes, if you are referring to those people but not to mainstream mMuslims in general.
Sad to see that these people are hijacking the Islam name to support their agenda.
Islam forbids the killing of innocent lives and suicides(including suicide bombers). Kidnapping happens in all society and country, not by these people only. Beheading is one of the most heinous crime you can imagine.
These people who are claiming to do all these atrocities in the name of Islam are dead wrong. What they did not know they have unknowingly left Islam.

Why are most of the Muslims fundamentalists and terrorists?
This question is often hurled at Muslims, either directly or indirectly, during any discussion on religion or world affairs. Muslim stereotypes are perpetuated in every form of the media accompanied by gross misinformation about Islam and Muslims. In fact, such misinformation and false propaganda often leads to discrimination and acts of violence against Muslims. A case in point is the anti-Muslim campaign in the American media following the Oklahoma bomb blast, where the press was quick to declare a ‘Middle Eastern conspiracy’ behind the attack. The culprit was later identified as a soldier from the American Armed Forces.
Let us analyze this allegation of ‘fundamentalism’ and ‘terrorism’:
1. Definition of the word ‘fundamentalist’
A fundamentalist is a person who follows and adheres to the fundamentals of the doctrine or theory he is following. For a person to be a good doctor, he should know, follow, and practise the fundamentals of medicine. In other words, he should be a fundamentalist in the field of medicine. For a person to be a good mathematician, he should know, follow and practise the fundamentals of mathematics. He should be a fundamentalist in the field of mathematics. For a person to be a good scientist, he should know, follow and practise the fundamentals of science. He should be a fundamentalist in the field of science.
2. Not all ‘fundamentalists’ are the same
One cannot paint all fundamentalists with the same brush. One cannot categorize all fundamentalists as either good or bad. Such a categorization of any fund amentalist will depend upon the field or activity in which he is a fundamentalist. A fundamentalist robber or thief causes harm to society and is therefore undesirable. A fundamentalist doctor, on the other hand, benefits society and earns much respect.
3. I am proud to be a Muslim fundamentalist
I am a fundamentalist Muslim who, by the grace of Allah, knows, follows and strives to practise the fundamentals of Islam. A true Muslim does not shy away from being a fundamentalist. I am proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim because, I know that the fundamentals of Islam are beneficial to humanity and the whole world. There is not a single fundamental of Islam that causes harm or is against the interests of the human race as a whole. Many people harbour misconceptions about Islam and consider several teachings of Islam to be unfair or improper. This is due to insufficient and incorrect knowledge of Islam. If one critically analyzes the teachings of Islam with an open mind, one cannot escape the fact that Islam is full of benefits both at the individual and collective levels.
4. Dictionary meaning of the word ‘fundamentalist’
According to Webster’s dictionary ‘fundamentalism’ was a movement in American Protestanism that arose in the earlier part of the 20th century. It was a reaction to modernism, and stressed the infallibility of the Bible, not only in matters of faith and morals but also as a literal historical record. It stressed on belief in the Bible as the literal word of God. Thus fundamentalism was a word initially used for a group of Christians who believed that the Bible was the verbatim word of God without any errors and mistakes.
According to the Oxford dictionary ‘fundamentalism’ means ‘strict maintenance of ancient or fundamental doctrines of any religion, especially Islam’.
Today the moment a person uses the word fundamentalist he thinks of a Muslim who is a terrorist.
5. Every Muslim should be a terrorist
Every Muslim should be a terrorist. A terrorist is a person who causes terror. The moment a robber sees a policeman he is terrified. A policeman is a terrorist for the robber. Similarly every Muslim should be a terrorist for the antisocial elements of society, such as thieves, dacoits and rapists. Whenever such an anti-social element sees a Muslim, he should be terrified. It is true that the word ‘terrorist’ is generally used for a person who causes terror among the common people. But a true Muslim should only be a terrorist to selective people i.e. anti-social elements, and not to the common innocent people. In fact a Muslim should be a source of peace for innocent people.
6. Different labels given to the same individual for the same action, i.e. ‘terrorist’ and ‘patriot’
Before India achieved independence from British rule, some freedom fighters of India who did not subscribe to non-violence were labeled as terrorists by the British government. The same individuals have been lauded by Indians for the same activities and hailed as ‘patriots’. Thus two different labels have been given to the same people for the same set of actions. One is calling him a terrorist while the other is calling him a patriot. Those who believed that Britain had a right to rule over India called these people terrorists, while those who were of the view that Britain had no right to rule India called them patriots and freedom fighters.
It is therefore important that before a person is judged, he is given a fair hearing. Both sides of the argument should be heard, the situation should be analyzed, and the reason and the intention of the person should be taken into account, and then the person can be judged accordingly.
7. Islam means peace
Islam is derived from the word ‘salaam’ which means peace. It is a religion of peace whose fundamentals teach its followers to maintain and promote peace throughout the world.
Thus every Muslim should be a fundamentalist i.e. he should follow the fundamentals of the Religion of Peace: Islam. He should be a terrorist only towards the antisocial elements in order to promote peace and justice in the society.

Yes terrorists are wrong.
What they do is evil.
I am of the opinion that the poor misled souls who commit these atrocities are only guilty of ignorance. They have been misled by evil politicians, who seek power and financial gain.
