If the terrorist would have followed the Quran, then there woudn't be innocent killings.

...If a person sees the world with a yellow glass then the whole world will be yellow..

It is the disease in the human heart which makes them to see Islam and the Quran in that context. Islam is the only religion which has accepted other prophets Jesus, Abraham, Moses and other great prophets who have come before. Islam and the Quran neither denied any of the old scriptures but it had brought new rulings. Judaisim came with strict punishment like killing for a killing and hand for a hand, This was necessary during that period of time.

Jesus said show your other cheek when you are slapped..His teachings were necessary because the followers of Judaisim become more rough in a period of time and was very keen in only punishing people. Islam never teaches to show the other cheek when you are slapped ..Islam teaches that if you got hurt, you have the right to hurt them in the same way but forgiving them is better !!. It chooses the middle way for normal humans. To choose the way of Jesus one has to be a saint..Is US is following the Jesus christ message ? If you want to know about Islam and Quran then read and understand Islam with a open mind. There is no problem with the Quran and it's versus..Neither with the followers because 90% of muslims and more than that are moderate people and very kind to humans of other religions and creed. It is people who kill others in the name of Islam give problems to others..But if you see them too they were also opressed in some way or other but they chose a wrong direction to fight !!
Similarly I don't think all the people in the west are like this but there are some who think that they are awakening the west but they don't have the eye to see things fair and balanced.
