i have read your article and i appreciate the fact that you have researched. however, you must be aware that the media and internet are swarming with lies about islam. the simple truth is that in order to know the truth about islam, you have to read the quran and authentic hadith. if you do, your mindset about islam with change, i promise. if you read the authentic hadith, it says a person who goes to sleep with his belly full while his nieghbor is hungry is not a muslim. "be steadfast in prayer, practice regular charity, and bow your head with those who bow down in worship" al-baqara verse43 "and remember we took a convenant from the children of israel worship none but god treat with kindness your parents and kindred, and orphans and those in need, speak fair to the people, be steadfast in prayer, practice regular charity" al-baqara verse83 "to the orphans restore thier property, do not substitute your worthless things for thier good ones and do not devour thier substance with your own this is indeed a great sin" al-nisaa verse 2 in islam, if you kill an innocent person it is as if you have killed all of mankind, and war is only allowed for self-defence or to fight agianst tyrany. i am sorry to say that many muslims do not practice thier religion properly. but one thing is, that the media tries to make muslims look bad, but have you any idea what is happening in palestine and afghanistan, have you ever watched recorded videos of american soldiers shooting babies, killing six year olds, and crushing muslims in the process of demolishing thier homes. i have watched videos of such nature and they are horrible, i have been to the middle east and seen for myself. please, research is not enough, in islam it is forbidden to make fun of other religions so please do not make fun of ours, i have studied christianity and never made fun of it. so kindly ask you to not blame islam on the muslims, muslims are human and they can do what they want, but islam is pure
