Many people seem to think that all muslims are terrorists? why is this? I do beilieve most muslims are extremists and are terrorists yes i said that!. I mean i understand if you beilieve in god or what not but alot of muslims are terrorists and hate the western world. Muslims keep saying that we are profiling on them when it comes to homeland security issues such as checking them at airports and stuff. Unfortunately we live in times that require such things to happen . What do you all think about muslims?

Mr. first of all, i'll say to u that u should n't discuss such topics in mylot. It spoil the environment. I am a Muslim and thankful to God, Who blessed me with this honour. Muslims r n't terrorist. u said that Muslims dislike western people, how can Muslims like western people as western army is rapping women in Afghanistan and Iraq. Which title should given to bush the hell, who is orderring to murder Muslims and takes easy the murder in Iraq and Afghanistan as they martyred insects n't human beings. Muslims r n't terrorist. Understand uuuuuuuuuuuu. Do n't discuss any such topic next time on mylot.

ya, I agree that such topics should not be discussed here. Anyways, the fact is "Not all terrorists are Muslims and Not all Muslims are terrorists". So no one should blame/accuse a whole communitity for the terrors/crimes of a few!!

The difference bewteen the IRA terrorists and the Muslim terrorists is IRA is doing its work in the UK. It is terrorising Ireland, England .... and it's OWN people. Muslim terrorists are terrorising the world. No I am not excusing the IRA at all as I don't agree violence as an ways to an end. However the fact is that the IRA is a tiny tiny sect by comparison and the world is not being affected by them, and certainly not in the PRESENT day. Muslims ARE affecting the present day.... it is all over the world! This is why the focus is on muslims and not the IRA. Quite simply the terrorist attacks that are happening right now are being done by muslims. Sorry if you don't like that but it is true.

I know some Muslims and even they tell me how violent it is in their home countries. If they admit to the violence, then it isn't just the media's fault. Not all Muslims are extremists, however, it is more common in that religion in the year 2006 than in any other religion. Most others have some history of it but no longer experience that as often.

It is not right all do not believe that Muslims are terrorrists and one other thing it is very wrong to judge somebody by his religion we are all human beings first and then comes our religion etc

Thanks for your comments. I think religious posting get more response so someone like to start religious topics for benefit of more response. On the other hand, look on Israil they are constantly killing Palestnese infant, boys, women but nobody say Jews are Terrorist or killer. As Jews has neclear bomb so nobody is brave enough to say them terrorist, but muslims is fighting against them as a brave with what weapon they have.

No one said jews were an exception either most nations in that region seeem to play a role in the killings and tortur or what not is it a thing of also not being civilized??

Let me ask you this: Are all Christians Bible thumping hypocrites who say one thing in church and then go out and say another once the service is over? Stereotyping is exactly where racism stems from. It's dangerous thinking, my friend.
@MrNiceGuy (4147)

So is thinking that your religion, in this case Islam, tells you to blow other innocent people up. What about the Quran thumping hypocrites that go to Mosque and claim they are being discriminated against after learning to hate the Jews and Unbelievers? Two sides to every coin.
• South Africa
19 Dec 06
no sorry mr nice guy thats not it. the islamic and mulsim faiths say nothing about going out to thump everyone else cuz they don't like you, in fact they speak more about pariah-ism and faith and respect to others than christianity does. maybe you should read the quran, my dear friend...

The preconceived notions regarding Islam (of which I am not a member just to be clear) are astounding. People who have never read the texts suddenly become religious scholars. I'm amazed at the blind bigotry of many folks who claim to come from tolerant backgrounds... and then they cover up their own hate with words like "unfortunately these are the times we live in" or some other ignorant statement they think absolves them of the guilt of being a bigot.

First of all you people have no evidence that 9/11 was done by muslims.......and without any evidence ..you attacked Afghanistan and then Iraq....and killed thousands of innocent people.....because of a single group of people whom you don't like ...though it is not proved that it was done by them.... now tell me who is the bigger terrorist????????? By the way, the biggest terrorist in the history of world was Hitler and he was a christian....

Do you realize that there are 1.6 BILLION Muslims in the world. Out of those, 19 hijacked planes. Do you see how foolish you are making such a broad assumption? And muslims have rejected us, we need to leave them alone and stop invading their lands. I do however support Israel's right to defend itself, but not the war in Iraq.

Think about it yourself, my friend... Suppose you were a Muslim who did nothing wrong in his life, but you is treated suspiciously and like an alien in foreign countries. Will you like it? Surely not. Although, it is the need of the times to check them at airports and stuff like that, but still you can show some consideration towards them even like checking. Noone should look down upon them. There are some bad Muslims like Osama, Saddam, etc. These bad fishes are making the whole pond dirty. But still...there is a need to understand, that we must behave good towards Muslims. I will tell you a cycle of events that takes place - 1- Some Islamic Terrorists cause problems in world peace. 2- People treat Muslims suspiciously and look down upon them. 3- Muslims think that other people are against them and they are enticed towards terrorism. We must stop this cycle from happening by making the Muslims feel that they are a part of our society and this applies to all countries in the world.

okay i can agree with some of this... but just here in alot of communities we hear alot of bad things about america and america that so obviously the negative vibe has to stop...from both parts muslims and non-muslims ....but its just like the war's that take place in israel all the time it never does...

Well my dear friend I can assure U that incidence of ppls looking suspeciously towards muslims is not very much common in mixed societies.....its rather isolated ones. The root of problems is that patrons of Islam justifying the actions of those who are out killing innocents. If u are a muslim than u must be very well aware that there is no dearth of such ppls in ur society who have a very soft corner for these so called terrorists and see them as saviours of the religion. This trend needs to be checked down. Thanks

I don't like hearing people complain that they get searched extra because they are of a certain ethnic group. I am NOT muslim and I am NOT middle eastern but I get thoroughly searched EVERY single time I go to the USA. Not only do I get the special rub down but they wipe my cases with that residue detector and they sift through my stuff quite well. They even remove the lining in my cases to check underneath. They even send my boots through the x-ray alone to see if I have something hidden in the sole. They keep me held up with all of this for quite sometime.... I even get interviewed about my motivation for visiting.... I don't care because I know that they are trying to keep American's safe. They are just doing their job and even though it is a pain, I co-operate with everything they do and I am fine with this. Don't act like you are the only ones that have this happen. Hey look, The terrorist attacks in the USA on Sept 11 were carried out by a certain group. I think that not only do they have the right to search others of this description thouroughly, they can search however they want it is their country and they are trying to keep safe. It is a fact that certain muslims are threatening the security of the USA so if they stop every single one and check them it isn't racist or prejudice.... It is JUSTIFIED as obviously they don't know every single person that is going to do something. Sheesh. If you don't like the way you are searched upon entrance and exit of the USA then don't travel. Easy as that.

I don't say that all muslims are alike, but they some bad people as well like osama and others, who have not been doing any good to these world and there people, is islam say that people should fight among themselves and die, where do they learn this from, uncivilized people.

you are sayin that some people are terrorist like osama so this is also truth that 50% non-muslims are also terrorist . because non-muslims are killing innocent muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palastin, Behrut etc so this is clear that if some muslims are involed in terror than non-muslims are also involved in terror. so please don't misunderstand muslims. ok muslims want to live with peace but some non-muslim are not letting them live with peace. thats all

muslims are indoctrinated by their religion to be fanatics. eye for an eye, fire and brimstone. and jihad is a holy war for destruction of the whole world and thats where we are headed thanks to them. look at the world around terrorism is now synonymous with islam and hatred. a muslim friend of my 7 year old daughter said that tey have to fight the world to rid it of the infidels. if this is what a 7 yr old child of an educated family is being taught you can imagine what the uneducated get fed into their heads

That's what I heard too. I dont know but maybe because most of them are terrorists. I'm not saying that all muslims are bad but it's the beliefs. Having more than one wife is one example. But I'm going to leave it in that way because I don't know exactly the reason why they let that kind of stuff to happen and I dont wanna offend somebody. The other one is the fact that they wear bombs to their body to kill innocent ones. They said that it was a sacrifice? Oh no, by killing? I dont think so. It's on the 10 Commandments of God isn't it? Thou shalt not kill. I wonder why they do believe in God but they keep on doing bad things. Haven't they realized that usually people tend to say they are bad?

That is wrong perception, which only seen from one just aspect without seeing the other aspect. In islam religion do not be taught by vengeance or hate someone, whether this a[n comapaigne of the super power country? Islam a peaceful religion, try you remain in moslem environment, do you feel always fear? Of course do not. That is perception from west world on the basis of religion sentiment. This world of religion ought to do not the effort brought by world as one problem. Because religion there is confidence lah from best ownself, we esteem west also. so that felt needn't again the existence of dislike to moslem. Isn'T it true that so your religion also?

honestly i dont know what to say. I am from {philippines and has a lot of muslims in my provice. I believe that there are bad muslims also but i stil believe that there are good muslims. The bad muslims are probably the one that do bad with other people. Coz in mindanao, our province, a lot of muslims was being killed becoz of other muslims as well. Can u see how bad other muslims are? They even kill there same faith and their brothers and sisters. But i believe that if there are good, there is always a bad person.

I just hate the fundamentalist whichever religion are they from. Muslims does not mean all muslims are terrorist only those with the ideas of fundamentalist , support the terrorism. There are few muslims actors also who are doing good. few muslims Novelist are also doing good. And this is fact so why many people seem to think that all muslims are terrorists?

i dont think its that ALL Muslims are terrorists. Its just that the most publisized terrorists are Muslim. They represent a small percentage of it really.

I think your point of view is skittered a bit. It is not that people believe that all muslims are terrorists. it is that all terrorists are muslims.

I was an aide worker after the tsunami in Thailand and many wouldn't hep the muslin poulations there. They were very hesitan to allow thier childrn to mix with us in the begining but after a few weeks, both the workers and the displaced villagers found common ground. The muslin families started inviting us to eat with them and the children where allowed to mingle with us. It was a fantastic experince for both sides, I think especially for the American workers we had.
