For the first time someone is talking sense.

The hideous actions of the Muslims ( which I don't approve of killing innocent people) is because of the Christians in the west actions, in killing Muslims everywhere, The main issue in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India Muslim, Arabs in general even Christian Arabs is Palestine

So the atrocities committed there with the support of US Bandits in US successive Governments provoked the Muslims everywhere since 1917 until today, the more atrocities committed there the more diverse actions by the Muslims everywhere

The wrong perception of Islam is being depicted and fed to the people from the same milk bottle ever since their infancy to hate Islam, an example is Peter Hall, he is totally brainwashed, completely soaked with wrong ideas about Islam since infancy, and he does not want to see the true Islam.

Newspapers, other Media such as radio, TV and ever since the beginning of last century depicts Muslims as savage, dirty, incompetent, hypocrites, cheating, robbers, bandits, miser, mean .....etc. The education in the Muslim world is the lowest in the world and the reason is the colonization since the 19th century and also the incompetent puppet rulers and regimes throughout the Muslim world and throughout the early decades and supported by indirect colonization of the west, imposing such regimes on the people against their will, this made people suffer more, and that is why you see the Arab spring today, I was only possible with the internet and social forums, the people are more educated now.

Islam is different than the attitude of Muslims, like what people used to think of Christians in the west, now the west thinks of Muslims.

Muslims in middle ages were superior in many fields, Christians from Europe came to the Muslim world to take education, now vise vera.

Muslims actions today is way away from the teachings of Islam and that is why you find Christians who know the True Islam enter Islam, there are 10s of thousands of cases of western Christians entering Islam, they don't see the actions of the Muslims, they see what Islam is

you are right about the perception, but it is wrong, and then we come to the question who inflamed this wrong perception, I know who, but do you?
