Of course your statement has some validity in that not EVERY person within a a group of people behave or believe a certain way, although if you read the Qu'ran you find many passages where extermination of a group of people (Jews) is a definite part of their beliefs. ""Slay the idolators [non-Muslims] wherever ye find them, and take them captive, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the last Day…. Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! (Sura 9:5,29,41)."

Sure, there are Muslims who may or or may not agree with EVERYTHING in their Qu'ran, but I have studied many religions and beliefs and the Muslim faith is the only one I have come across where violence against others is encouraged! (the Qu'ran makes it very clear that Jews should be destroyed). What kind of faith enforces the destruction of others, especially a group of people? You speak of misguided religious beliefs, well, that is one you can ponder.
