The nature of of Islam is rather complicated to understand. It could be kind, delicate, thoughtful, understand├Żng, yet it could be rough, unkind, not understanding and violent. It seems it has two faces.

And it is very difficult to understand when it is going to show one of its faces. There are two kind of muslems as well. The ones that are kind and the ones that are violent. The answer is the fanatic ones are the violent ones and the muslems who are not fanatic are the kind ones.
