The President of Israel is correct

Reader comment on item: Israel's President Reflects Candidly on Islam

Submitted by S.H. (Canada), Jun 20, 2006 at 20:44

Let me start off by saying that the President is in fact, correct, Islam is in fact, a peaceful religion, and I cannot think of any religion either that promotes violence. The reason behind the common misperception that Islam is a hateful and violent religion does indeed lie in the fact that the majority of Muslims prefer to blame others for their actions.

Muslims should in fact be standing up and informing the world and denouncing terrorist actions, because they are in fact not a part of Islam, and never were. Any violent acts committed in the name of Islam, are not Islamic acts, they are simply uneducated and misled people, who have gone through many unfortunate occurences in their lives. This is not typical just for a terrorist, but for any regular gangsters and criminals we see in North America. These people have a perverted view of Islam, because they prefer to listen to preachers, sermons and peers, rather than read the Quran itself.

Preachers, sermons and peers can almost definitely be wrong, because in the end, the fault is always human. Forgive me If I say anything wrong, but it's useless to inspire hate and condemn a people because of some violent and moronic individuals who just need an excuse to fulfil their personal gains. Islam is built around peace, and If we want to heal and help everyone work together, Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus EVERYONE needs to realise that we all have our radicals, we all have our moderates and we all have our uneducated ones, who need to be taught how to live peacefully side by side.

If anybody has any questions, please post and I will answer to the best of my ability.
