    Becoming Afraid For Muslims, Not Of Them

    I have a friend in her 80's, a gentle, well-mannered, church-going white Christian lady who'd do anything for anybody.  Yesterday I got the third email she's sent me which were speeches by European politicians and prominent people who were condemning Muslims.  Not...

    People Using Religion To Push Evil Agendas Are What Causes Assumptions.

    Now if you ask a random person what they think of Islam... you can get a variety of answers. Many times, unfortunately, the answer will be "it's an evil religion full of murder and terrorism". Now I'm a firm believer in "terrorism has no religion". These people that are...

    Cab Drive In Nyc Knifed Solely Because He Is Muslim

    Want to know where all the current ANTI-ISLAM frenzy leads?  To HATRED AND MURDER... or at least ATTEMPTED MURDER. How about this... a NYC Cabbie, peacefull plying his trade... is asked by a white, male passenger if he is a Muslim.... when he says he is... he is STABBED...

    I Definately Understand This Group.

    Hello, I do agree that because of the media portraying all Muslims (Except for the Canadian show "Little Mosque on the Prairie") as Terrorist. The reality is only 5% of Muslims are Terrorists. I think that all Ring-Winged Christians are Terrorists. Why are they going into...

    And Anyone Who Looks Like Them

    Like SIKHS who are not Muslims at all. What folly to associate a whole religion with an extremist offshoot. And this case if it looks like a duck, and sounds like a duck maybe its not a duck.

    A Counterbalance.....(part 1)

    to the barely disguised, ill-informed Islamophobia demonstrated in an EP question I read earlier. I wish people would, you know, read stuff and learn, before they decide to put pen to paper, or finger to key.The fact is the world, and that included western culture, would not...

    So Much Ignorance And Hate In This World

    Honestly, every time I turn on the TV and hear people bashing Muslims I just feel we're back in the '50s. McCarthyism is back, people, except this time we're targeting Muslims, not communists. “When politicians start talking about large groups of their fellow Americans as...

    Yes

    I think the important thing to remember is that Muslims are not the problem. Terrorists are the problem. Not all Muslims are terrorists, and not all terrorists are Muslim.

    Radical

    There are certainly some radical extremists in the world, but not all Muslims believe what is pasted as the "majority's" belief all over the media. And there is a certain level of negative evidence that doesn't help their case. If only people realised that the extremist Muslims...

    Extreme

    One of my Muslim friends on here, I won't say who, has had trouble with some unknown person deleting her profiles somehow. She isn't advocating that Muslims take over the world. She just wants to talk to people, like we all do. I have quite a few Muslim friends on this site...

    Sorry but no. As an atheist I have more to fear

    from a sicko that believes he is the vengeful hand of god than he has to fear from me. Islam has become a code word for the angry underdogs. It's just like a gun, it takes a sick and/or simple mind to kill with it, but it remains a powerful weapon. There's more to Islam than...

    Lets clear up one main issue.

    The Western Media continues to call people fleeing war zones as MIGRANTS and not REFUGEES.... The Syrian, Iraqi, Afghan, Libyan, all fleeing from devastaing wars imposed by the US-Nato-Saudi-Turkey-Israeli axis. If the European media even began to discuss as to how all these...

    A BNP member has crawled out of the woodwork and replied to my post 'Stop The BNP'. In the usual baseless, vile invective, she equates Islam with rape, murder and torture. I'm not going to go any further in this post (though I will post this in one or two other groups), but I...
