Yes I agree with Hayya. You cannot sterotype muslims, because a minority are extremists. You can do that with any faith, race or any thing really. There are million of moderate muslims. You will be suprised the ones with the beards are the most moderate, kind, gentle people you will ever meet and im telling you the truth.

Yes there are extremists but thats in everything and yes unforunately the muslims who justify their actions by religion have not received any education usually regarding religion.

I was born Muslim but i astrayed for a few years. In those years i was the worst person, most frustrated, i had so much hate in me I use to abuse girls so much i was the worst arrogant person, but by reading the Quran and especially the character and sayings of the beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) it has made me the most moderate loving gently human being ever. So you cannot judge every muslim. A teacher can teach but if the student astrays how can the teacher be responsible? Im guessing just open your minds a little bit and stop sterotyping.
