Intro to Islam (which means Peace)

in response to reader comment: Mr, Campbell - There is plenty of hope for those moderate Muslims you posit

I am not a scholar but i am definately better Educated and Wiser than all of you ... Leaving aside everyone's comment and muslim bashing i just want to clarify a few points.

1. Islam is a religion, not a person. A Muslim person is a follower of islam. To those who find Islam and Muslim as foreign words; Islam means "Peace" and Muslim means "one who submits to Peace".

2.There is no such thing as extreme islam or moderate islam or conservative islam or liberal islam because there is only One Version of the Quran which reveals One Islam.

3. There is no such thing as a moderate or conservative or extreme or liberal Muslim. There is "a Muslim" or "Not a Muslim". To be a Muslim you need to accept Islam in its entirety. To be Not a Muslim you can do what ever you Like including picking and choosing what you would like to follow in Islam, and i dont beleive there is something called "A half muslim" or "a Quarter muslim" even if these terms existed the wont apply.

4. To further my 1st point, a person who kills, terrorizes, uses violence, lies, decieves, hates on people, spreads hatered, and does bad things..... IS NOT "A PERSON WHO SUBMITS TO PEACE" (a muslim).

5. I can't believe, i feel like talking to a 3 year old.

Anyways I hope next time you all use the word muslim or islam... you would use it more wisely and in the proper context. It is IMPOSSIBLE for a Muslim to be a Terrorist, or hater, or lier, or deciever or etc... However a Non Muslim man is capable of the above acts since their dont worship the Lord of Peace and Mercy.

Submitting....
