Why is it now that most people disrespect Muslims even if they don't know them ?
I find it stupid cause there are good Muslims alot if them but people just have this bad picture of them in there heads
It is not Muslims as a whole. It is the radical Muslims that want everyone who does not agree with their religion, their ideology, their violence against humanity (Including violence in their own religion between Sunnis and Shiites), the beheading of girls wanting an education, 911, the constant hatred of Jews, Americans, ANYONE who disagrees with them is cursed to death in the name of Allah? What kind of religion could uphold so much violence?? Yes, Islam!! I hope this may enlighten you a little before you come to silly conclusions about how people feel and have every right to feel this way about radicals!!
Radicals exist in every religion. Islam doesn't have a corner on that market. For those who associate Islam with terrorism, I would remind them of how the US was founded - by eradicating an entire indigenous people. This was done for "religious freedom", and yet no consideration was given to the natives here and their right to be free. The fact of the matter is violence and ignorance are a human condition and religion is used as a way to get people to condone all sorts of things.
I know Muslim people who are wonderful. I worked with several years ago and I had no problem with them or their beliefs because they didn't push them on me and treated me with respect. I offered the same in return. I judge people on the content of their individual character.
Unfortunately, a lot of media is prone to sensationalism and they only show the radicals of any group and not the majority of good people. This has been especially true of Islam since 9/11. You cant keep people here willing to war endlessly over there if you don't make someone the bogeyman.
That being said, Islam has a lot of problems with extremism of the violent type and it's hard to fault some people for being leery of it. Granted it's not fair to associate the majority with the minority, but I believe it's time that the more moderate Islamic people start taking a stand against the violence and terrorism that occurs in some of the more conservative Islamic countries and I mean a real stand. Enough is enough and it's time to move into a modern era in many of these locations.
I disrespect radicals of any stripe - Muslim, Christian, Bigots, etc. What I don't do is automatically assume that Muslims are terrorists, and I think you'll find that most educated people also realize this too.
We are talking about now!!! Yes.... Christians have been guilty hundreds and hundreds of years ago. When was the last time you heard of Christians beheading people and call for the death of EVERYONE who does not agree. Do you agree? If not, u r hated
did you read the whole of my comment before reacting JThomp - the part where I said their conservative Islamic countries do need to get with modern times? Why are you always so angry? I was pointing out all people are capable of terrorism - it's true
I have Muslim friends and certainly don't judge them or their religious beliefs for the cowardly, hateful practices of the radical fundamentalists. It is an unfortunate fact that there are extremists in practically all religions. Christianity used to be on the forefront of committing atrocities in the religious world; but to be completely fair, in our times, extremist Muslims have topped them. Mutilations, murders, terrorism is a part of these radicals' lives; and they set out to intimidate not only the non-believer but the moderate Muslim as well. I am sure there are bigots that disrespect Islam in general, but I believe that most thinking people simply have no respect for intolerant extremism, and in fact are fed up with it.
Some people will read this as an insult, but I believe it has a lot to do with fear and ignorance. Other responders have already pointed out that there are radical fringes (in all religions) and that the news media only shows the bad things done by people at least claiming to be Muslims. These people take that information as the only version of the truth so they hate and disrespect all Muslims. I say we need to get to know people as individuals. We should be friends with the really good people and only avoid the bad ones.
Most people don't disrespect Muslims, that's a generalization. People that mistreat/harass Muslims seem to be a small majority from my personal experience. To claim that most people do is the same type of stereotyping that leads to the bigotry towards Muslims. There's always going to be extremes in any group, just treat others how they would like to be treated.
I gotta say the (media) reporters etc. Are responsible of all this hate between Muslim people and the world, tho it might be someone else, anyone is capable of doing the unthinkable, the media displaying to the whole world, blaming game which shows the whole world that muslims are to blame for incidents that occur whenever there's are threat or something. So yeah! MEDIA! Snitches!!!
The media is completely liberal, biased, and pro "Politically correct." Why do you think they always show dead Palestinians and never dead Israelis?
The media is all about the plight of the Muslim Palestinians. Although many are terrorist and have blood on their hands, they are somehow shown in a positive light in the press. It is their own faults for messing with Israel in the first place!!

All muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are muslims. What do you think?I know its bit sesitive issues. However I was thinking why most of the terrorists in the world are muslims?

"Muslims are Terrorists!" - its a line that I often find visible in a vivid way now a days. Many Hubbers here use these two words interchangeably so often that even being an atheist I have started to feel empathy for those Muslims who has nothing to do with terrorism. Theres approximately...

Your first statement should probably be a definition of Islam: is it what the terrorists, using religion for an excuse for jihad, worship or is it what the more peaceful people worship. Or somewhere in between?

I was checking out this Hub on Whoopi Goldberg and 'The View' and came upon Whoopi and Baver walking out of the show, on the remark of Bill O'Reilly that 'Muslims killed us on 9/11'. I then went looking and found another clip on Utube a talk radio program clip of David Pakman...
