All religions are not alike ...

Reader comment on item: On Islam and Islamism
in response to reader comment: Islam is what people make of it like any religion

Good people make something good out of Islam and bad people make something bad out of Islam. That is true of all religions.

I'm sorry to disagree with you but I can find nothing good in Islam to make anything good of. And that's the 'problem' – as long as Muslims thing that there are 'good things' in the Quran, the Hadith, the Sira or even in the Sharia they will eventually come to the realization that Jihad in the way of Allah is a requirement upon all Muslims and they will resort to the only methods prescribed by their damnable texts.

There are many 'religions' that may actually make a person better behaved BUT Islam is not that sort of 'religion'. Islam, if practiced 'religiously', will only make a person behave atrociously.
