ISLAM is not the enemy, every one knows, but in world WHY so many countries creating enemy ?
It is the same problem with all religions. The radical extremists become the,"Squeaky Wheel" so to speak. The media is quick to cover hatred and violence. It would be wonderful if the media would focus on the good things but it rarely does.
For example: A.....Young man helps old lady pick up scattered groceries. Or.....B.....Low life criminal attacks old lady and steal groceries. Which story would get more coverage?
The problem is the radical extremists. But why are they radical? The answer involves a clashing of cultures, mixed interpretations of the Koran, and Muslims living in other countries that feel isolated.
Islam has a different set of values that conflict with Western society. The burqa, for example, creates suspicion and fear in Western countries. Muslim youth newly transplanted from their native homelands feel out of place and naturally band together in enclaves. And consider also that blood is more important than country. This is why Muslims have turned against their adopted countries creating the "home grown" terrorist. If a mullah told his Muslim congregation to kill all infidels -- would they?
There is a slow acceptance of the Muslim faith. And Muslim women are "westernizing" how they dress. So maybe in time the two cultures will clash no more.
Yes, it is an enemy. Politically correct apologists say it is not, but those who can observe reality know that it really is.
It is not just the militants, bombers, terrorists, it is the religion and CULTURE that are problems. The Muslim world has been backward, stagnant, and repressive for centuries. If it wasn't for oil, they would be even more impoverished, shunned, and isolated than they are now. I, for one, do not want that sick culture here. Christianity is bad enough.
the religion itself isn't the enemy, it's the followers that are. if the muslim community would quit trying to force their beliefs on others, stand up to the extremists and not treat women as though they are nothing but a piece of property i think it would help. things like shira law are not only wrong but it shows the weakness of the men who follow this religion.
Here's some info on Islam
Every Muslim is unique and wonderful in God's eyes. Followers of Jesus Christ should be careful not to generalize or presume that all Muslims are the same.
Every Muslim is someone whom God loves
From Ismael of God-Repent & Return
Galatians 4:22-25 tells us that Ishmael was born as a result of works resulting in slavery. Islam means submission, and a Muslim understands that he is a servant of Allah. While this is also a Biblical aspect of our relationship with God, it is incomplete. As Christians, through Jesus, we know that we move from being servants to becoming sons and daughters.
Pray that Muslims will also understand that God desires for everyone to know Him as children and not as slaves (Galatians 4:7,Matthew 18:3).
Islam teaches that a person must do enough good deeds to outweigh the bad deeds in order to make it to paradise. Even then, there is no guarantee for a Muslim of salvation. As a result of this belief, it is difficult for many Muslims to fully understand the basis of forgiveness of sins. It is also difficult for Muslims to understand repentance.
Islam is not a religion that teaches enmity. Islam strongly discourages his people even hostile. As for what is touted today, that (as if) Islam is a terrorist, then that all these accusations are wrong and inappropriate. People who think so are people who do not understand at all about the teachings of Islam. Because none of the teachings of God in the Qur'an nor the teachings of the prophet Muhammad in the hadith that teaches enmity (please check and find out what I say with scientific viewpoint of Islam and honestly, not by ignorance and suspicion alone).
Thus, if there is one group of Muslims who do so (hostile and terror), then that is deplorable, not the religion of Islam. Hope this will become obvious to those who have not assimilate Islam.

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...

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?
