Blaming violence on Islam is the most ignorant thing one can do.The holy Quran abhore violence and condemn it (of course it is acceptable to defend one self against agression).

Attributing the violent behavior of certain moslims to the teaching of islam show how shallow are the simple and basic understanding of Islam to western educators. I challenge...to prove to me where in the Quran or Hadith that violence is taught in Islam.Written or claiming that some thing is happening is so does not mean it is so. As for islam unlike Judi-christian teaching the Quran and HAdith are unchallenged and they are intact.

The violent Muslims are Arabs and their reasons for being violent is not islamic, no Islamic cleric have asked American government to adopt Islamic laws or to convert to islam.The problem is America supporting Israel to so whatever they want in the middle east, is America that is supporting oppresive regimes in the arab world,itr is america that want to imposse its culture on other civilisations,that is the problem. islam is not the reason for the violent behavior of muslims.

from my unknown generation to date we are all muslims, I committed the Quran to heart at the age 15,but I have christian friends and i live with them amicably.
Violent peple are just violent or many situations force them to it. It is christians that are fighting in the IRA,the spanish rebels,the Lord resistance army in Uganda,the SPLA in Sudan,the comerose rebels and so many others but no one is citing these groups as having derivec their inspiration from the bible or some christian teaching.
Please call a spade a spade it is not Islamic teaching but United states or the western world involvement in the middleeast.
