No to terrorism by Nayzak No to terrorism by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [Peace be to you],

Many ignorant people in the west unjustly accuse Muslims of terrorism as if terrorism is a Muslim monopoly. ignorance about Islam and the misleading media are what blinds these people and prevents them from seeing the truth about Islam.

There is no doubt that everyone in the west is in agreement on at least one thing: Terrorists are Horrible. But what is not clear in the minds of many of these people at this moment is the fact that Muslims are NOT terrorists. Islam does not teach terrorism, bombing, kidnapping, hijacking and murder. Quite the opposite is true. Even the "Jihad" [often misunderstood to mean "Holy War") is nothing like the newspapers and television media have portrayed it in the past.

Timothy McViegh blew up the Federal Building in Oklahoma City a number of years back was a Roman Catholic. Did anyone accuse the church for what he did? Unfortunately, the same is not true for Muslims and Arabs. The vast majority of Muslims or Arabs have no association with the violent events around the world yet Islam is invoked with terrorism. It is unfair to 1.5 billion Muslims of the world and religion of Islam.

Is it justice to blame a nation on the basis of the opinion of its rivals and enemies, ignoring the greatness of that nation, its roots, scholars and books?
Islam has forbidden violence in all its forms. It has forbidden hijacking airplanes, ships and other means of transport and has forbidden all acts that would undermine security

Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy and forgiveness. If an individual Muslim were to commit an act of terrorism, this person would be guilty of violating the basic tenants of Islam.

God says in the holy Qur'an in 5:32:
مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا ۚ
"whoever kills a soul not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land - it is as if he had killed all mankind. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved all mankind".

The last prophet of Islam, prophet Mohammed -peace and blessings be upon him- said:
"He who harms a person having a treaty with the Muslims, or charged him more than he can, I will argue against him on the Day of Judgement"
"Whoever has killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims shall not smell the fragrance of Paradise"
"He who hurts a dhimmi* hurts me, and he who hurts me annoys Allah"

*dhimmi : a non-Muslim living legally in Islamic land and holding a different belief.

I hope this was beneficial.

in Middle East, these supposedly 'a few' heretics of Islam (Islamic Extremist), POSSESS ENOUGH INFLUENCE TO THREATEN THE STRUCTURE OF A NATION.

Being autistic, I was so in the dark about the truth about Islam. Until I met a girl named Maya, whom was Muslim & my friend. I haven't seen her in a while, so I really do miss her. 

 Also World History had opened up my mind to the good things about the Middle East. I am still awestrucked by how much the Muslim faith was all set up before Christianity started. 

  I hate terrorism, but I also despise how the newscast media is spewing up hate for fans of fandoms & people with autism. They are making people like me look like villains, which we are not.

  So I am with you!

I've never managed to get a fully effective definition of terrorism.
Nayzak Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014
that's because many people twist it according to their purpose. I believe the unbiased definition is the one from the dictionary...
PeteSeeger Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2014  Student Writer
The dictionary definition is wide enough that any sort of conflict that involves violence can be considered terrorism.

I love this picture for so many different reasons. The artistic quality (<333) and the wonderful message that needs to be yelled from the rooftops all across the West. 

Nothing pisses me off more than ignorant bigotry. 
Like in all aspects of society, religious or what have you, there are extremists. Extremists and radicals who use the name of God for their own selfish evils. I mean, here in the West, I'll see the occasional news story of a woman (usually Christian) who kills her children because "God told her to". (Not to mention our problem with fanatic religious cults based around polygamy and child rape....) No one ever associates that with the assumed "evils" of Christianity. It's always about obvious mental and/or personality disorders the person may have that could have contributed to the crime(s). I just can't stand how these ignorant "deeply conservative" right wingers portray Islam/being Muslim as interchangeable with extremist terrorism. Just like crimes here, they're committed by a bunch of crazies. Religion has nothing to do with it.

A lovely thing I saw on NBC about 2 years ago was a special on true Islam. How it teaches peace and kindness, pretty much like any other system of faith.  Yet, DISTURBINGLY, a poll I recently viewed had shown a lot Americans still believe Islam to be a "non-peaceful" religion.  It's like, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Do you KNOW how to read? Or even skim the pages of Wikipedia, for that matter?  Just blows my mind.

These madmen know exactly that they don't just kill the people they blow up and shoot. With every innocent a certain group kills, two or more innocents of this group will be killed in attempts to find those who committed the crime and even more will be killed for revenge. They don't just commit a crime, they force more people to create crimes, creating more victims. Yes, the US didn't act right when they attacked Afghanistan and the Iraq. They committed crimes. And there's no excuse for that. But this is a guilt the americans don't have to carry alone on their shoulders, it lasts on these terrorists as well. And the worst is, by turning against the americans, joining their ranks and killing more innocents, people just support them more and THAT is what their true intentions are behind vicious attacks like 9/11. The americans are a minor target. The main target are their own people, so they are forced to join them and become as guilty as all who just turn this vicious circle more and more.
