Okay, this ridiculous Islamiphobia NEEDS TO END
Seriously? People attempting murder just because the victim is Muslim? Priests now threatening to burn Islamic holy books because they are trying to show that Islam is "of the devil" or something ridiculous of that sort? Seriously? In America? Where there is FREEDOM OF RELIGION, or at least supposedly? Come on.
Take a look. Read into what Muslim people's goals are (and I'm not talking about Radicals. I'm talking about sensible, normal every day Muslims). If you actually take a look with an OPEN MIND you will see that the ultimate goal is to be the best person they can be. GUESS WHAT? Almost every religion is like that! It really isn't that far different than other religions, you know. It's about being the best person you can be, and isn't that worth anything? So they believe in slight differences as to how the world came to be or in supernatural matters. So what? It's the same morals and values for the most part.
I am Jewish, and we know about prejudice. I think everyone knows how the Jews have been scape-goated throughout history. It's horrible and disgusting to see that happening to others. People also probably know how there is a major conflict between Jews and Muslims right now. But guess what? I still believe that just because a person is of a different religion than me, that doesn't make them evil! They can be great, wonderful people! I know many people of all different religions who are all perfectly fine people! (Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Wiccans, Buddhists... I don't personally know anyone of a different religion than those but that's besides the point.)
Why can't we all just coexist, and CELEBRATE our differences instead of HATE them?
