No. Islam is a religious faith, one of many out there, and it deserves no sympathy from anyone. For the record, I also have the same no-sympathy for Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Sikhism, or (my own religion) Pastafarianism.
People deserve sympathy, religions themselves do not.
Do I sympathize with many Muslim people who denounce violence and live decent lives? Yes I do. Exactly as I sympathize with Jews, Christians, Buddhists and atheists who denounce violence. But I only empathize with people, not the faceless religions they follow.
