Did you know that Islam is not all that different that Christanity? Its actually part of the same family of religions. Its because they are seemingly "different" and extremists from their neck of the woods, claiming to be righteous Muslims, are attacking American sites that people feel the need to hate on them.
I find that this line from an animated Disney movie, Pocahontas, says it all:
"You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you'll learn things you never knew you never knew."
I actually took time to learn about Islam. Its surprisingly familiar to the Christian religion I was raised up with. One almighty being creating and ruling over all that is, has been, and always will be, a mortal being created and chosen by the almighty creator and ruler to do his bidding and convert people to believe in him, and the mortal ascending into the heavenly realm of the almighty creator and ruler.
Sure there are many differences, but the basics are all the same. Heck, Islam even believes in angels and demons.
Anyways, I digress. My point of this whole post is to open your mind and look at others that are seem so radically different from you and your way of life, and see that they aren't so different than you after all.
