So far, I have read all the comments from both parties, the one that opposed Islam and the one that support Islam. Surely, it is hard for the muslims that had learned Islam since they are just toddlers and has already makes Islam the way of their live to explain to beauty of it to those who is still viewing Islam only on the surface. Same with those who hate Islam could not extend the level of the 'hatrednes' if I could call to those who do not understand it (in this case, the Islam supporters).

Why don't us all take the matters and look it from a neutral point of view? I admit, west media now promotes Islam as a religion of hatred and terrorism. Why not with the war here and there that involved Islamic country? With 'a very old man molested a 6 year old kid'? Now, do the end justify everything? I would say, Islam does not encourage all of the things above, in fact Islam strongly forbidden it. Those people are muslims, but they has been shrouded with lust and they failed the test that has been send by Allah s.w.t. They just use the name of Islam to justify their act.

We as people, should be able to judge based on our own opinion, our own decision, not by the act of others. I agreed with those who suggest you all to try to undertand Islam through books that promotes Islam's teaching, not by the act of Islam's practitioner, as sometimes not all the practitioners do the correct practice.

I do understand why a lot of people do see Islam as a religion of hate. I do not want to persuade you to move from that opinion, but, I again advice you to read books and judge Islam by its teaching, not practitioners

In the matter of justice for woman in Islam, woman do have freedom, the 'hijab' is not a must, but become a must if a woman is a true beauty that cause any man to lust after her even by only seeing her face. Woman have equal rights in Islam, in fact woman is a diamond in Islam. A woman could send a father /husband/male siblings to heaven and a woman also could send a father/husband/male siblings to hell under certain circumstances. Why don't you find why? In case if you are intersted of course, I won't force you. (^_^)
