The Current situation involving Muslims

Reader comment on item: Militant Islam's New Strongholds

Submitted by Robbie J. (United States), Apr 16, 2004 at 13:11

I am apalled at some of the views on the religion Islam. Islam is a religion of peace and honoring everyone because we all are God's creatures. To say Islam is militant is the most bigotry inflanted comment i have ever read in my life and ... The media likes to make Muslims out to be this terrorist radical people, when in reality they just want peace and security like anyone else. During the history of Christianity it has also been very militant such as the Crusades, The Salem Witch Trails, and the Inquisiton. Every religion at one point or another has fallen to the radicals and been forced on a group. Every religion tries to benefit the people but nothing is perfect and the actions of a few should not represent or in any way be the symbol of a group.
