MUSLIM TERRORISTS: REALLY "RADICALS" AND "EXTREMISTS", OR IS THEIR RELIGIOUS DOC

India
December 22, 2006 8:16am CST
We constantly hear the apologists label the Islamic terrorists as being "extremists" or "radicals". But are they really? There are so many of them willing to die for their beliefs. Can we honestly claim to know Islam's teachings better than they do? If people want to assume they are extremists or radicals Muslims, then why can't we also assume that Islam itself is a "radical" and "extremist" ideology? What do you think?

There are black sheeps in every community and so are there in Muslims but you cant judge the entire nation by a handful of people. Islam, as a whole, is a religion of peace and brotherhood. It preaches humanity more then any other religion. Media is just promoting Islam in a very wrong manner. It is a strong propaganda against Islam and Muslims.

I have expained many time on this forum that islam teaches us to live with peace and give peace to mankind, islam means peace, there is no way to teach terror, islam is peaceful religion, if 2% muslims are terrorist, so 20% non-muslims are also terrorist i can prove it by America-Iraq War Reference, American Army is killing too many innocents muslims in iraq, US Army is non-muslim so we can say this war is non-muslim terrorism against innocent muslims, This is truth that we can sacrifice for our Religion. Don't misunderstand Islam, Muslims are not terrorists, this is truth that too many innocent muslims are killed by non-muslim armies, Like Israel is killing innocent muslims in palastin, American Army is killing innocent muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan, Its mean some non-muslims are big terrorist than muslims. if you want to know what is teaches us you should visit this site below, i hope you will understand, http://www.arrahman-arraheem.com/

it is obvious because of the popular support, leadership, and influence these ideas have in the Middle East that terrorism isn't only 2% of Muslims. There is a much higher number of fundamentalists or it wouldn't be possible for Sharia to be allowed or for state governments to sponsor terrorism against hte US and Israel. The US isn't killing innocents in Iraq, the terrorists do that for them. DO you really think the US military kills innocents on purpose? Every innocent they kill gets them on TV as murderers and makes the war look even worse. The Terrorists have a GOAL of killing innocents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of the people dying are dying because they are either insurgents, or killed by insurgents. Of course Muslims can't be criticized, that is against Islam and all infidels who insult THEIR god and THEIR traditions should be killed or silenced! Yeah, but Islam isn't dangerous at all right?

Religion doesn't make you do crazy things. It is the individuals own stupid thought process that makes them hurt others in the name of religion. I was always taught you don't play with God.

Religion is however set up to brainwash whilst young, even Christianity, you're Christianed as a small child without thought.

Actually all the Muslim's terrorists are control by someone because the belief of their religion. Mostly, the culprit for the terrorist is someone who control by the LARGE Force and they can't do anything but just receive order and just order their MUSLIMS to become terrorist and tell them that they do all this for their religion but actually they are just someone who be loyal to their religion and die for nothing. Just my opinion here. No offensive to Islam.

First off, Extremists, Radicals, and Terrorists are not a single faith they come in all forms. The Problem is The Terrorist Groups, Recruit people from ages about 8 or 9, Raise them up with lies about what the Faith really is about, Brainwashes them so the people who grow up comitting these acts are really seriously believing what they are doing is right, when it is not. This is not Just in Islam. This happens with Gangs, and Hate Groups, And this happens in any country anywhere. Where a person beliefs if they can strike enough fear into anothers heart, they can control that person by fear. The Sad thing is this tactic is Not only these people who are blowing up eachother. But the Fear = Control Tactic is being used by the media, government, as an excuse and pressure to try to convert or revert people to any religion of the world! .... People need to prove and show where the Real power and control is by living with good value and example, loving eachother, and not out of controlling or destroying eachother. The Real power is nurturing eachother so everyone is stronger, and there is less pain and suffering to deal with, and everyone pulling together makes everyone heal and recover faster and then no one is left behind to suffer in hell with no help. It is not a religious docterine Althought I have seen the Fear = Control tactic used in allreligions all faiths, Most mainstream countries the media, etc... It is being used to slowly take away rights and freedoms all over the world. FEAR... If people want the terrorism to stop they need to stopbeing afraid and show the real power is in pulling together and help you fellow man, Not in destroying your fellow man. And Terrorists come in any form religion, media, government. It is not just in Islam, and I think reporters andm edia should start being extra careful to eachothers values as to how to present a story and not to over dramatise and over sensationalize events..... The Event of tradegies are bad enough.... without extra drama being thrown on it... If you want to stop terrorism, Stop the spreading of Fear, and Misunderstandings. Pay attention and help your young people. - DNatureofDTrain

i think that radical and extremist it's basic from the wrong education of islam, the radical islam learn from the wrong guy,we called them khawarij,they have been exist from beginning of rise of islam. they often say that their war is holy war but they wrong to place it. because declare war in islam is not taht easy like they tink but it must through a hard way and must be fatwa from ulama,exspecially fro arab saudi

i think on my own opinion they r not extremists or radicals. rather they are just doing what they believe their doctrine tells them that this is the right thing to do, that is to kill people. it's just a matter of their belief where they grow up from.
