that is a very naive remark to make. you cannot blame islam for being a cause of violence. islam is about tolerance and PEACE not violence. Anyone who denies this is just looking for a source of blame and unfortunatley it is islam which is yet AGAIN blamed for all that goes wrong. Please dont turn islam into a mockery by accusing it of being something it is anything but. Please find sufficient knowledge before you go against islam. i would not claim anything about anyone, any religion etc without knowing everything there is to know about it. And yes i know that you may not be able to help having this belief because for you it may seem to be true because there are some very 'disturbed' people in this world who hide behind islam to help justify their mistakes and this is why islam is seen as something its not. But what i want people to know is that islam is about peace and tolerance, not what people think. so please find out more info. about the REALITY of islam. thanks
