The commentary given by Silver are not based on objective judgement. "The perscution of Chirstians in the Middle East Region'..... Islam never allows that. ISLAM says "if you save a life it would be as if you save all mankind". if you kill a life, it would be as if you kill all humanity"". However, it is true that there are followers who transgress the tenets of the religion. It's known that the hatred towards Islam is deeprooted since its inception. you denied the role of western media and other enemies of Islam in wrong presentation of ISLAM and spreading ISLAMOPHOBIA across the West. Is it not the conspiracy of enemies of IslaM that create destructions in muslim lands? Look the growth of ISLAMOPHOBIA movements across EU (France, Belgium,.....) to isolate muslims. To be fair, the religoius scriptures must be always refered [not the followers] to judge the controverial pratcices and happenings. As a true follower of ISLAM, I beleive that the Koran and the traditions of the last prophet Mohammed (may the peace and blessings of God be up on him) should be refered and anlayzed. it is not fair to say ISLAM is NOT tolerant, peaceful......by looking at the wrong presentation of the media as well as some misguided followers.
