    As a Muslim they are not Muslim who celebrate another person's death in such a way. They are extremist who views and ideological thought processes are of a minority and not the minority.

    Most Muslims here (uk) and around the world are good Muslims just like my fellow Jews, Christians, Catholics, Indians etc.

    He was a good man. 😰
    Are they atheists? No they are muslims.

    You know a religion is flawed when members of said religion kill eachother and decide who is faithful and who is not.

    Islam is tarnished mainly by the words of the Koran, and the intent, words and actions of Mohammed.

    Just because the followers fail to do it justice, does not mean we should judge any religion unfairly.

    Have to agree those who know little about Islam tend to support it

    Those who learn about it tend to be horrified

    Riddle me this, Good Muslims: Doesn't the Quaran endorse the killing of anyone who when confronted with the Caliphate does not willingly convert to the Muslim faith?

    Here are some direct quotes from the book of your faith:

    "Those who disbelieve follow falsehood, while those who believe follow the truth from their Lord... So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives)... If it had been Allah's Will, He Himself could certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost."

    "If the hypocrites, and those in whose hearts is a disease, and the alarmists in the city do not cease, We verily shall urge thee on against them, then they will be your neighbors in it but a little while. Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter."

    Call me crazy, but Islam seems to me like a savage religion that promotes violence against anyone who believes differently.

    Just sayin'.

    Without even opening the book, look into the meaning of the name of the religion: ISLAM - comes from the root letters s-l-m meaning peace.

    there are also other words with the same root

    English speakers wrongly assume that if two Arabic words share the same root word then their meanings are related when in reality the fact that some words share the same root word does not imply a relationship between the meanings of the words.

    Then in your own example you have quoted the Islamic greeting: Salaam which means peace. Also please spare me the wikipedia pages. A Bachelor of Arts in the language is a good base for me.

    What sect was the shop keeper?
    What a stupid question. It doesn't matter what sect it was. It was a human. Just like you and me. Did I forget to mention he has the same blood colour as us? Lol

    A pathetically oversimplified, xenophobic view of a religion. Negligent of all the culture that religions brought to the world from 500-1900 AD

    I'm Muslim & I don't understand the thought processes of people like that. They believe in God but they spread hatred and celebrate the death of a good people.
    It seems as though they hate and wish death upon anyone who doesn't follow/believe in the same ****ed up ideology as them.
    How do you know he was good? Maybe God is burning him now? Why do people presume that those who have suffered are inherently good people? So many claim to know the mind of God, it's sad.

    Can you explain to me what a friendly discussion of the meaning of the religion's name has to do with this nasty diatribe?

    Thank you so much for your 2 pence worth of advice. Unsurprisingly, I won't heed it!
