muslims arent bad people. someone posted a comment saying that not all muslims are terrorists but most terrorists are muslims.yes i cannot dissagree with you most terorists are muslim but has anyone ever thought why is this??

i certainly think that all muslims would like to be in the position of christians. being treated equally and respected in public. we are people too just like you. if people do bad things its always done i revenge which is why most terrorists act in the way they do. i am a devoted turkish muslim and i go to a anglican school where yes sometimes i am treated second class, but no one at school knew i was a muslim before i told them and they were all surprised when they foundd out. i quote someone said "you dont look like a muslim" and i replied "what do muslims look like?"even now my friends forget that i am muslim becuse its not what i an its who i am and how i am.

yes i dont wear a head scarf but lets say i did, i think that if i turned up to school tomorrow i wouldnt be treated the same way. why is this?? have a think about it. people claim that they are not racist but yes you basically are. because you are showing that you are disturbed by someone who is following their religion.

and now it come to the Kurani kerim (quran) most english trnslations of the qurn are written by peope who are against the muslim religion. just like if i wanted i could make up some thing from the bible and and falsely translate it into turkish etc. i no that none of th quran is bad and 1 sentance that is translated could mean many things without the rest of the paragraph along wih it eg) Allah will send bad pople to hell where the sun is as low down as the top os a mosqe and they work as slaves. this would be an easy quote to put down but the sentance conitnues...until they have paid off all their wrong doings and then they will be sent to heaven where they will live in paradise and cured by the angles from the scars from hell.

i hope i have changed the way you think about muslims and that we are not bad people. we are a religion the respects other religions because that is the way most of us have been taught.

remember that muslims are good people like u and me and even though we are second class people we will always still fight for what we believe in just like everyone else!!!
