I am truly saddened by the perception of, what is now a growing majority of people who think that Islam advocates violence. Consider the paragraph below:
I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.
It is sad but all that is written above is true. This is all happening in the muslim world and because on the media spotlight, it is projected to everyone who will listen. I once read that you can’t really change people’s mindsets, because they believe what they want to believe and ignore the rest. So if a certain news story conforms to your existing world view, you accept it; if it doesn’t, then you don’t.
