Hi,

Are you a recruiter for Al-Qaeda or something??? That is the way they preach and what they want us to think. They want to corrupt all Muslims to that ideology and interpretation which is corrupted by taking small bits to show that Islam means terror without putting those small bits into context. When you put the whole thing in context you will find that Islam is submission to God, peace, justice, equality, tolerance and love of mankind.

Only extremists no matter what religion would follow that kind of an ideology that you and the terrorist are trying to show. For example, if I said something like this: Like you said: "not all Muslims are Islamic terrorists". You see how i kind of took that out of the context of your whole of comments? That was not what you were saying all together was it? The vast majority of your comments talked about the criminals who are using Islam for their own purposes. Their actions are not representative of Islam. Islam never says to kill innocent people and you will not find that in any legitimate teachings of Islam. The terrorist have twisted and contextomized verses to fit their agenda. We have to show them the right way in one way or the other.

peace
