Extremism manifests itself dangerously in the Islam religion (Palmer, Monte, and Princess Palmer, 37). The Muslim religion has some laws and believes that no one should question their design, origin or application. Good people should punish immoral people in Islam religion without showing mercy to them. In Islam, human beings have no right to offer forgiveness to others that can easily lead to and create peace to oneself in the society. The unforgiving nature makes human rights groups in many ways try to change and support governments that try to overthrow Muslim extremist governments.
Westerners brand them as terrorists, they brand themselves as freedom fighters; people argue both ways on this topic. 9/11 was just one of the many effective displays of terror that they can cause among the Western powers. Islam also has interesting teachings, which turns some people into fanatics or zealots; driving them to commit such atrocities. Islamic Fundamentalism is the bad idea of mixing religion with politics, resulting in dictators who hate the U.S and most likely secretly support Al-Qaeda Thus resulting in the West generalizing the Arabic population as just being mindless terrorists. The attacks located at the Benghazi Embassy, another freighting display of power.
Islam, the religion of peace and harmony has unfortunately been corrupted by the deadly terrorist acts which have taken place around the world during these past couple of years. Today the people in this world view Islam as a threatening and terrorist religion. Often, the killing of innocent people, suicidal bombings and terrorist attacks are carried out people who tend to claim themselves as Muslims, though in reality, the dissident actions of these so called named Muslims have nothing to do with Islam. Among all the attributes of God, the Holy Book (Quran) mentions that: he is the source of peace and bestower of security (59:23) people must establish peace in their life. Terrorism what a complete disgrace, however people forget one thing that terrorism is not only found in Islam yet also continued in other religions and countries.
It may be better that Muslims condemn acts of terror unequivocally without launching into explanations about the algebra of grievances. To venture into such complex levels of sociological commentary without the requisite skill and empathy is to treat human life as dispensable. For Muslims to make such claims is to bring into disrepute to the legacy of the Prophet Muhammad, whose person is fondly recalled in Islamic teachings as a "mercy unto humanity." And surely every Muslim is entitled to retrieve the reputation and integrity of her or his faith from such misrepresentation. The truth is that such large numbers of Muslims have become so dehumanized that they parade indecency as grandiloquent virtue.
Regardless of who is ultimately found to be responsible for these terrorist attacks, no ethnic or religious community should be collectively blamed. Blaming ethnicity and religion as the root of this catastrophe only drags countless more innocents into a cycle of hate. Grouping Muslims or Arabs with terrorists is unjust and prejudiced. Even as the unscrupulous criminals behind this tragedy cloak themselves under a veil of religion, we in the civilized world should distinguish between religious beliefs and murderous terrorists. Indeed, all Muslims are utterly and completely disgusted at any acts of violence carried out in the name of their religion.
It is also a common stereotype that Islam is strictly an Arabic religion, or rather, that all Arabs are Muslims. Muslims justifiably worry that the terrorist activities of groups which identify themselves as Muslim have biased public opinion against all followers of Islam. The term "Muslim terrorist" is incorrect, they say, because anyone who adheres to the principles of Islam could not be a terrorist. In addition, it should be not... ... middle of paper ... ...tian farmer quoted in the Washington Post, "America has killed thousands of Iraqi children," said Hassan, 34, ...

People of the United States should not participate in the racial discrimination of Muslims. These prejudices reflect the inaccurate assumption that religion defines character, is an ineffective counterterrorism strategy, shows racism in society, and separates the country’s unity. Even so, some Americans view profiling as a safety precaution, and they believe Islam discrimination justifies the fear of terrorism. Many simply believe Muslims are terrorists that intend harm and kill those opposing their religion. When asked about the intentions of Islam, 28% of
American Islamic leaders reply to such charges with indignation. They protest that it is unfair, even bigoted, to demand that they disassociate themselves from people with whom they have never been associated. "What we've found is that other religions don't have to defend their faith when extremists do maniacal acts," Salam al Marayati, the director of the Muslim Public Affairs Office, told The Tampa Tribune. In the same vein, Imam Abdul Rauf, of the Al-Farah Mosque in New York City, told CBS News's 60 Minutes: "That's just as absurd as associating Hitler with Christianity or David Koresh with Christianity. There are always people who will do peculiar things and think that they are doing things in the name of their religion."
I assure you, dear brothers, that we are firm on the road of jihad... to destroy the new Jewish Crusade. "3 The fax forced Muslims and non-Muslims worldwide to consider, even if only for an instant, the validity of the claim. Was this a legitimate application of jihad? Were all Muslims compelled to fight alongside the Taliban? Even as the war in Afghanistan draws to an apparent close, the question is still worthy of consideration, for if bin Laden is correct, then non-Muslim nations are literally powerless to defend themselves against Muslim nations without creating a monstrous backlash from all Muslims of the world who heed the holy call.
As supporters of not going to war say in the article ISIS, “[I]s America cause a backlash among the very people it needs to win over?” (ISIS) They make a very valid argument. By stating this they are saying if we do engage in military action against ISIS we could be validating extremists views that “America is a threat to all Muslims” (ISIS) and by doing this the Muslim population that are only moderates might turn extremists and join ISIS’s cause. This kind of action would only strengthen ISIS’s power and influence and make their reach that much more vast ... ... middle of paper ... ...efore they can create the operational wherewithal to conduct a Sept. 11-like tragedy” (ISIS). The problem with this argument is again by looking at history. Al-Qaeda was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.
