Extremists are violent. Do not blame the entire religion for one sect's violence. It would be like naming Catholicism cannibals because some still believe in transubstantiation or naming Christians violent because of the crusades. I do NOT promote the Islamic religion but I do know some peaceful Muslims and therefore feel lead to defend them. Not all Muslims practice jihad. Not all Catholics believe in transubstantiation. Not all Christians took part in the crusades.

Religion is just the object through which violent people express themselves and justify their evil actions.
I haven't read the thread yet... but I'm sure this has been said more than a few times- it's the truth!
