How should Muslims react to the Internet publishing bad news about Islam?

For the first time in Islam’s history people of all religions and cultures have access to news about Islam, through the Internet (internetworldstats.com: In the First Quarter of 2011 there were over 2 billion Internet users). This news isn’t censored or “spun” by self-interested imams, imperialists, oil barons or multiculturalists, it’s unfiltered, naked “news,” and a lot of it isn’t “good”:

-7/10/07 worldpress.org: Poll of Muslims in Egypt, Morocco, Pakistan and Indonesia indicates that 75% believe in strict application of Sharia law.

-12/5/10 LA Times: A new Pew Research Center poll shows that majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing the current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion.

-The Freedom House rates the degree of freedom in all regions of the world. Its 2011 report rated the Middle East and North Africa 78% not free.

-1/29/07 Daily Telegraph UK: 40% of Muslims, ages 16 to 24, want Sharia law; 13% admire al-Qaeda; 36% believe apostates should be executed; 75% believe that women should wear veils.

-5/22/07 Reuters: 25% of young American Muslims believe in suicide bombings to fight the West.

-7/27/08 Sunday Times UK: 33% of Muslim students support killing for Islam; 33% want world Islamic law.

-7/27/08 Sunday Times UK: 33% of Muslim students support killing for Islam; 33% want world Islamic law.

-November 2011 MacDonald-Laurier Institute poll of Canadian Muslims: Only 39% of respondents disagree strongly with the idea of introducing a Caliphate (world Sharia law); 75% wish that Sharia law be implemented; 20,000 support Al Qaeda.

-7/6/11 Daily Mail, London: Islamic extremists have called on British Muslims to establish three independent states within the UK. The notorious Muslims Against the Crusades (MAC) group have named Yorkshire towns.

-12/3/11 Daily Mail, London: Muslim honor crimes increased 47% compared to 2009. The attacks included murder, mutilation, beatings, abduction and acid attacks.

-4/22/12 Daily Telegraph, London: As many as 100,000 women in Britain have undergone female genital mutilations with medics in the UK offering to carry out the illegal procedure on girls as young as 10, it has been reported.

-It’s a tedious process but well worth the time: Google search “civil wars in the world,” then research each individual civil war and you will find that 90% of them involve one combatant-religion, Islam: in China, Russia, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, Israel, Pakistan, India, Indonesia-Ambon & Halmarhera, Côte d'Ivoire, Kashmir, Kosovo, Bosnia, Kurdistan, Kirghizia, Nigeria, Philippines, Somalia, Turkey, Chechnya, Sudan, Yemen, Thailand, Uganda, Azerbaijan and East Timor.

Simply ignoring such news won’t solve any problems.

    They should accept the fact that lots of Muslims do bad things in the name of Islam, and that's a liability they have to deal with if they want to project a good image to the rest of the world.

    You know, Non-Muslim people in Europe, America and Russia almost blew the world to nothing because of their views.

    THREE TIMES.

    Since when has Islam ever almost blown up the world? 90% of all Civil Wars? I highly doubt that is true. And since 100% of all wars in total are because Non-Muslim people in Europe, America and Russia almost blew up the entire planet, more conflict comes from Christianity and Judaism than Islam.

    It's just because people love to hate Islam. You know, people used to hate black people a couple years ago and they were convinced it was the right thing. It's just humanity being idiotic, like it always has been. But none of this will matter when we're all dead and being judged on our own individual sins.

    look , i will tell u my opinion , American or western people are smart and educated BUT not smart enogh to find the real true . i mean Americans trust the media so much also they don't belive anything else and that's wrong

    when u get closer to the Americans you will find them nice people and respectable. but they still have bad memories about Islam (thanx to the stupid media of course) they should read more about that thing , they shouldn't belive the media always , this mission depend on us and on them ,too

    i have 4 uncles lived in USA and they married to American wives , they are happy

    our media show the american as bad guys who spend their time out in casinos and they show them as drinkers , cheaters , killers and gambling

    You keep posting this on and on again. I have see you .

    First of all , you are jealous on Islam.

    'Religion without science is blind, and science without religion is lame'. (Sir Albert Einstein).

    Do you enjoy and cherish the 'by product' of 'so called' western humane system?

    For you rape, incest, casual s** , skimpy clothes at pools and beaches, mixed parties, stripteases, pole dancing and everything else that exploits females as OBJECTS might be casual talk, in fact in all European countries and the U.S. .... we as Muslims take such issues seriously, because Islam teaches us respect for women.

    Unfortunately misguided and deluded fools like you have always existed. Dumbing down of the education system and bland "customers always right" consumerism has created your generation.

    You are neither capable of understanding what you cannot buy nor do you possess the mental framework to make educated decisions on what the past and current world is about.

    Today atheistic fanaticism is rampant and society rewards stupidity, ignorance and delusion. This is why when looking at the formal past your religion and cultural roots are alien to you. You have become a mongrel and tool which can no longer function without being told what your opinions are.

    This is why you do not understand that the society you are enjoying was created by those very same religions that you are deriding. People are being killed and killing for politics and culture not religion. Muslims countries make democracies possible and all resources come from them. Yet the people are treated no differently to the Jews in the time of Hitler.

    So the problem lays not with Muslims but with those who cannot understand or help them.

    15 TRILLION in DEBT, +50 million gays raising children getting married, majority of kids born in America today are bastards, 30 million gambling addicts, 100 million drug and alcohol addicts, one murder every 22 minutes, one rape every 5 minutes...The western society has degraded the women to the levels of mistresses and prostitutes in the name of freedom for women and feminism. Islam has set the limit of wives as 4..but in the western society most men(not all) indulge in immoral sex with many women. Then they discard them and go for other women. You may call this freedom but in Islam we call this immorality. Islam provides freedom but sets limit. America has more wife beatings and domestic violence thanentire Muslim world. Even some of their celebrities that run around half naked got abused by fathers or boyfriends and ended up in hospital.

    Ghandi was asked once

    " What do you think about Western Civilisation? "

    he replied

    " That would be a good idea "

    high rates of murders/ homicides/ suicides

    high rates of rapes/ incests and crimes of sexual harrassment

    high rates of crimes/ robberies

    sex without marriage/ fornication

    adultery/ prostitution

    pornography in the name of 'free speech'

    vulgarity/ obscenity/ profanity on a rise

    women objectification into sex slaves

    capitalism (rich getting richer day by day)

    inflation

    high debt

    child pornography

    abortion (1.5 million babies are aborted each year in US)

    hate crimes/ racism

    accumulation of wealth

    high rates of suicides

    alcoholism

    gambling

    drug use and abuse on a rise

    STDs/ AIDs/ etc on a RISE

    rise in Old homes and 'day care centres'!

    (i can name more if you wish!)

    In short, man is 'his own god'.

    there is no retribution for his sins.

    he is free to follow his carnal desires/ innate characteristics.

    RESULT is in front of our VERY eyes!

    >> do you know what the IRA is? Irish republican army? They're almost all catholic and they employed terrorist tactics to stop British occupation of Ireland. They burned british flags, and they blew up plenty of stuff.

    have you ever heard of the Catholic Counter Reformation... That was pretty gruesome

    I am half American half lebanese.

    I HATE when Americans are so close-minded about other ethnicities, like Lebanese people. They think that WE are all terrorists, and bad people. (I say WE because i amwant prouder to bethe Arab than American). Muslims are misunderstood and beautiful individuals.
