ISLAM IS MISUNDERSTOOD

Reader comment on item: [Fixing] Islam's Image Problem

Submitted by ramsey (Canada), Jul 18, 2005 at 15:52

You cannot allow a small group of Islamic terrorists to change your perception on the whole religion. Let's say for example, that there are 1million Islamic militiants. Thats only a little under 0.09% of the ENTIRE RELIGION, which is an estimated 1.1 billion people. Thats not even anywhere near 1%

And these terrorist smay claim they are Muslim, but let me assure you they are not. The Quran clearly states that anyone who commits murder when not in a state of self defense, is NOT a muslim. Islam is not like christianity where you are baptised and then automatically a christian. You are a muslim if you follow the quran. Theres no baptism, or anything similiar to it. You're a muslim if you follow the Quran. So if you're killing innocent people when the Quran clearly FORBIDS it, then you are not a muslim, because you are doing something the quran forbids. So these terrorist may claim to be muslim, but in reality they are not.
Islam is the most misunderstood religion.
