What point are you trying to make here?

That we should kill all muslims? Or get rid of extremism?

There is nothing wrong with Islam in itself. A religion so devoted to peace.

Was it not a saying of the prophet "Spread peace among you"

If you think we should get rid of extremism then fair enough. But to get rid of extremism we need to get rid of it in every religion, not just Islam. The only point is that the media only shows extremism in the Muslim world. Extremism in Israel, India or China is never shown.
