I was born and Raised in the USA ., i am a Convert to Islam , i want to live a peaceful life and i want to live a life that is centered around my religion , if this means praying 5 times a day , or not eating pork , or living by strict rules ,then i would happily do it , because it brings peace to my heart , no more do i have to live a life where i look back the next day and feel guilty of things that i did , no more do i have to worrie about weather their is or is not a god , i do not have thees battles within my self anymore ,my soul is free , i love this new found life i have in Islam , and what many people do not understand is that Most Muslim people feel they will find peace by living in this so called out dated barbaric way of life .
But let me ask you , If the US was invaded and , we had to defend it , and i used my religion for streanth and courage would i still be a terrorist ?
i ask you this because that is exactly what is going on over seas , but yet they are terrorist, according to people in the video ,
i really dont have a point to this thread , i guess i am just venting , it would not bother me if some mod decided to trash it ,
never have i ever had any problems Living in my own country , but when i found god , i found out how much evil really surrounds me , an evil i used to be part of .
some thoughts on the videos would be nice , thanks all

Written into the Koran is concepts of Matyrdom and Jihad; militant ideology.
Muslims take this book very seriouosly, more seriously than your average Christian takes the bible. They truly believe in the Koran's accuracy, and as the Koran outright condemns non-believers, that allows for a large scope for Muslims to brew their hatred and prejudice.
A moderate Muslim is someone who will ignore the hateful verses of the Koran, who would sooner hide his contempt or judgement to a non-believer. This shows that they are scared to show what they really believe. A coward.
If Muslims can't deal with that, why not leave Islam.

What about the Lord's Resistance Army, then? Or The Orange Volunteers? Or the Army of God? Violence certainly hasn't been exclusive to the Roman Catholic brand of Christianity.
I find it interesting how christians attempt to separate Catholicism from "their" version of Christianity, but then embrace almost their entire tradition, and learning up to the point of the split. Sorry to say, but Catholicism is Christianity.
