in response to reader comment: To Tasha K

I still think you don’t understand what I am trying to tell you. You need to realize not all Muslims are violent or terrorist. Yes the Muslims that have been in the news or have been involved in violent things have done very bad and wrong things but this doesn’t mean you blame a whole entire religion upon this. Yes you will back your religion and I’ll back mine and there is nothing wrong about that.

I just truly want you to understand Islam does not teach to be evil. Islam doesn’t teach to hate other religions. Islam doesn’t teach to be sexist. You are looking at all the bad that has been put into this world and you are still not taking the time to realize that the people you see on the news and the people you hear about are all complete and total extremists who have taken what the Quran says into their own meaning and have taken the name of God in completely horrible ways. Have you read the Quran? And about the sexist comment you made, the government in those countries require that to be done. Wearing black burkas so only the eyes show is a tradition from so many years ago and the people who choose to follow it have. In the middle eastern countries the traditions and laws and culture has been kept and in some cases today seem very extreme but I also think that these extremist have taken over the government and created groups which has a lot to do with all these problems. Please just realize that not ALL muslims are terrorist and no Muslim is told or taught to be hateful or evil.
