Ok, it isn't racism, but isn't it at least persecution?

Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?
in response to reader comment: No tolerance for the intolerant

The Quran has never taught to discriminate anyone who is not muslim. It teaches people to be kind to all people and creatures and even the environment. Please read some of the Quran for yourself before you spit out hate toward the beliefs of over a billion people, it will make the world so much better if we would open up our minds to other perspectives.

Why are people converting to Islam if its such a horrible religion?

Back when Christians were using the Bible to justify slavery and the superiority of the white man, Muslims were inviting people of all color to practice the religions as equals.

It wasn't necessarily a problem caused by Christianity, but by how people interpreted Christianity. The same goes for Islam, if you see someone practicing Islam as its put in the Quran and as was practiced by Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), he would never attack an innocent person. Proper Islamic law forbids the killing of innocents and women and children. Yet, there are people that believe and claim they're fighting for Islam when they bomb places with innocent people and women and children. These people have a twisted view of Islam. Its not the same Islam that the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) preached.

Please don't trash the religion just because of the behavior of a few that claim to be a part of it. There are plenty of Jews, Christians, and Hindus stealing, raping, and killing in the world. It doesn't make Judaism, Christianity, or Hinduism evil. The same goes for Islam. In the end, the teachings of all these religions are basically the same. Be kind and respect others. Treat others how you'd like to be treated. Wish unto others what you would wish for yourself. So this goes out to all of those people full of hate, respect!
