How do Muslims expect us to judge them favorably when there is so much evidence like this?

Bing/Google search “civil wars in the world” and determine where they are being fought; then research each civil war and determine who is fighting in them. The results are startling: 90% involve one combatant-religion -- Islam. Muslim extremists fight in China, Russia, Bosnia, Cyprus, Macedonia, Israel, Pakistan, India, Indonesia-Ambon & Halmarhera, Côte d'Ivoire, Kashmir, Algeria, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kosovo, Bosnia, Kurdistan, Kirghizia, Nigeria, Philippines, Somalia, Turkey, Chechnya, Sudan, Yemen, Thailand, Uganda, Azerbaijan, Mali, Chad, Libya, Bangladesh, East Timor.

It therefore should not surprise us when we read news like this:

    The Muslimes are definatly picked on! Lol. They are a pious peace loving religion! Why would anyone want to upset them? I mean the Shias and Shiites are brothers, yes? Everyone just misunderstands the violence that they create, the wars they start even among themselves! No do not be harsh on these peace loving fanatics!

    Before the creation of Israel, Muslims were the most peaceful people present on earth. But after the UK created Israel, gave Palestinian land to the Jews, and started oppressing and ethnically cleansing the palestinians, all hell broke lose. Thats exactly when the violence started. Palestinians are oppressed and even deprived of fresh water and the people of the countries that created Israel, didnt even know about this, or knew but was having double standards. I am in no way justifying the violence, but I think to make their point clear, a lot of Muslims today have taken the wrong path. Violence is never the answer, from either side.

    Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Quran, God has said:

    “God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers.” (Quran 60:8)

    The Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, used to prohibit soldiers from killing women and children,[1] and he would advise them: “...Do not betray, do not be excessive, do not kill a newborn child.”[2] And he also said: “Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise, though its fragrance is found for a span of forty years.”[3]

    Also, the Prophet Muhammad has forbidden punishment with fire.[4]

    He once listed murder as the second of the major sins,[5] and he even warned that on the Day of Judgment, “The first cases to be adjudicated between people on the Day of Judgment will be those of bloodshed.[6]”[7]

    Muslims are even encouraged to be kind to animals and are forbidden to hurt them. Once the Prophet Muhammad said: “A woman was punished because she imprisoned a cat until it died. On account of this, she was doomed to Hell. While she imprisoned it, she did not give the cat food or drink, nor did she free it to eat the insects of the earth.”[8]

    He also said that a man gave a very thirsty dog a drink, so God forgave his sins for this action. The Prophet, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, was asked, “Messenger of God, are we rewarded for kindness towards animals?” He said: “There is a reward for kindness to every living animal or human.”[9]

    Additionally, while taking the life of an animal for food, Muslims are commanded to do so in a manner that causes the least amount of fright and suffering possible. The Prophet Muhammad said: “When you slaughter an animal, do so in the best way. One should sharpen his knife to reduce the suffering of the animal.”[10]

    In light of these and other Islamic texts, the act of inciting terror in the hearts of defenseless civilians, the wholesale destruction of buildings and properties, the bombing and maiming of innocent men, women, and children are all forbidden and detestable acts according to Islam and the Muslims. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the vast majority have nothing to do with the violent events some have associated with Muslims. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the laws of Islam.

    Judge ME based on MY actions because let's be honest, American government has caused a hell a lot of destructions in the world. As well as the British, French and other European countries. Just one example of this is the British and French FORCING the Aboriginals to leave their land and FORCING them to practise their traditions (now known as Canadian land). I know it's a old example, but ask the Aboriginal people how much they are still suffering or even just look at the Statistics, they have lowest life expectancy in Canada, lowest Literacy rate in Canada etc.

    Another example, this man in Canada, KILLED/RAPED numerous women and guess what you people ignore his religion or his beliefs. For all we know he could be a Christian/Jew/ Atheist.

    Stop being so ignorant. I can give you THOUSANDS of examples of what you people have done to the world and how you destroyed it and taken innocent lives. So relax, I don't judge you based on it.

    I'm not asking for much, just judge me based on what I do.

    Oh and if you want more examples of non-muslims committing crimes., just let me know. I'll give you PAGES and PAGES.

    sura 8:7 allah wishes to confirm his words--- wipe the infidels out to the last;;; sura 9:5 when the scared months for fighting are past. fight and kill the non-believers wherever you find them. take them hostage, torture them and lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war. these are just two of dozens of sura like these but for some reason muslims don't have a clue they exist but claim they have read the quran.

    I dont expect you to judge me at all, I dont give a flying **** about your opinion on me. I do expect you to treat me as a human being.

    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. You can't judge one on the actions of another; I believe it to be ignorance at its best.
