    A lot of people look at atrocities that ISIS commit such as massacring anyone who won't bow down to them, enslaving countless people and raping children and think "that's extreme, it's not Islam."

    That's a ridiculous point of view given that they are doing exactly what Muhammad did. If anything they're the true Muslims.
    Despite what most Muslims claim, I think that Islam can, and has, evolved. The Islam of the 7th century is not the Islam of the 21st. ISIS are attempting to revive that early version but many Muslims reject and resist it.

    In the context of the changing attitudes of Muslims over the years, influenced by the enlightenment and secular democracy, I don't think that they are the "True Muslims" of today. However, they are the true Muslims of the Quran and sunnah and as such cannot be rejected as not Islamic.

    It's like a glass of water representing a Muslim
    ISIS would have rocks and insects and other gross things mixed in
    Theoretically, it's still water
    But you wouldn't hate all water because of a few bad glasses
