Muslims Are NOT Terrorists
Muslims are not terrorists because if they were Melbourne as you know it would be a ghost town because there are so many Muslims that live there

It is not Muslim belief to strike fear into America and destroy monuments in suicidal attempts. Terrorists are just a bunch of idiotic extremists.

I have been friends with and met with many Muslims, and I can guarantee that NONE of them showed ANY sign of being radical, extremist, or violent. They actually happened to be more peaceful and kind than the predominately white atheist community around them. Most of my friends were of different ethnicity and religion. Most of these arguments are depending on dictionary definitions of terrorist, but I always saw the meaning of 'terrorist' to be any individual or group of people that causes or inflicts terror upon others. With that, the common high - school bully could be a terrorist. Terrorism, in my eyes, does not depend on making headlines. It is just the human nature of inflicting terror and cruelty upon others in order to gain a higher position in ones own mental hierarchy.

All muslims aren't terrorists. It's the extremist who just happen to be strong believers in Islam.

Those who say all muslims are terrorists are making generalizations. Like someone said before, Terrorists are Terrorists. It is the individiual, not the whole religion or race. If everyone in the world were to generalise each other, than christians would be considered pedophiles (as we know many priests have molested and raped). People also need to understand that there are different groups of muslims such as Sharia who are fundamentalists and Sunni, who are not so strict. It is the Individual not the Religion!

Muslims are not terrorists, plain and simple. Muslims are actually closer to you then you might think; Muslims, Christians, and Jews all believe in God. The fundamental differences are differences on the views of God's prophets (Jesus and Muhammad). And what everyone doesn't tell you is that the terrorists that crash planes and blow up bombs are FUNDAMENTALIST Muslims - they believe that Muslims should go back to the basics of Islam. They believe that anything that is a threat to Islam principles should be destroyed (Westernization, Christianity, Judaism, etc.). The only terrorists are terrorists.

'm not saying that terrorism is legal in Islam when you're under attack by another country by the way of false excuse to attack and with no reason to attack like America is doing in Iraq and Afghanistan. Think what happens when planes drop bombs on your houses and community in front of your eyes and you see your family screaming with pain and lots of them dead. Naturally your reaction will be to kill every one who did that (so there will be no religion in front of you at this time) so they suicide by bombing their bodies to blow up enemies who have taken their free country and who says that no one can defend their country for getting independent. This way of suicide doesn't came from Muslims. It's come from World War 1 and 2.
SEE ALSO: "What are the Ethics of War in Islam?" to learn about verses in the Quran allowing fighting but only under certain circumstances such as self-protection, against oppression, etc.

 ''like America is doing in Iraq and Afghanistan.''

But it's OK for the Taliban (and varied other extremist groups) in Afghanistan to kill and torture the locals in order to control the area? forcing them to live under sharia whether they want to or not?

Terrorists come from all sorts of different backgrounds, other than...Islamic.
E.g. Sarin gas attack, Tokyo.
It is a mere misconception that terrorists are Muslims... Or that all Muslims are terrorists.
In fact, most terrorists are likely to have interpreted their religious teachings (or other sort, depending) WRONGLY. So their activities can't actually be blamed on their religion, you know.

There are terrorists in every religion.

However, some use their holy books as justification, and in this case, are therefore named religious terrorists, with the media totally ignoring any possible motives OTHER than religion.

Islam DOES need to focus on ridding itself of fundamentalists, though.

Muslims aren't all terrorists. Those who claim to be muslim and are terrorists are not muslim but illuminati puppets acting to an invisible higher power. Why do the illuminati choose to slander and attack Islam? Because muslim countries refuse to give in to the New World Order. There are some genuine muslim extremist terrorists but not all are. There are terrorists claiming to represent all different varieties of religions.

NO! Only an idiot would think all muslims were evil. During the crusades, the crusaders slaughtered many muslims. The muslims however, treated the christians well and spared millions of them. Americans who think muslims are evil are blasphemous, filthy heretics. Before, christians were also evil as they burned anyone who was no christian. Muslims however, are more tolerant and respect every religion. They are also taught to embrace peace and mercy. It is only extreme muslims that are bad. On 9/11 an imam (muslim priest) said that the Al-Qaeda were a scourge to muslims.

This is stupid. Most Muslims are normal people. Terrorists are extremists... They are certain people that are messed up in the head influenced by traditional Islam. Most religion has people with extreme views. Christianity has KKK and nazis. Only difference is Muslim nations don't have much power so those extremists think they have to take it into their own hands.

Yes, Muslims are not terrorists. So what if some Muslims are terrorists? Not all are. Its just like how there are American terrorists, Chinese terrorists, English terrorists etc. Point is you don't have to be Muslim to be a terrorist, and most certainly, being Muslim does not make you a terrorist.

 Americans and English are not terrorists. We are both civilised peoples who understand that the right balance to benefit the maximum population is something fragile and in need of constant scrutiny and adjustment, not blind submission and obedience.

Thanks captain obvious. Of course all Muslims are not terrorists, however I don't think this is a good thing. Terrorists seem to have the one thing that 'civilized society' is lacking, which is a culture built on the principles of revenge.

Muslims are not, by virtue of being muslim, terrorists. I've noticed many posters say, however, that most terrorists are Muslim. While none has so far provided any statistical evidence for that assertion, for the sake of argument let's say it's true. Now, if you were up against an enemy that was unfathomably larger and more powerful than you, and had access to much better weaponry, would you really fight them on their terms? I submit that most Muslim terrorists do what they do out of the same human emotions that motivate us all, they simply have different means to accomplish them than the United States does.

A final note: The USA has undoubtedly killed millions more people through its actions (yes, millions) than Muslim terrorists have. We've also overthrown democratically elected governments, installed right-wing dictators, and generally ravaged third-world countries for their resources. That's why I find all of this focus on "terrorists" a little silly. When you look at overall impact, they're pretty tiny. The only reasons Americans focus on them so much, and Muslims in particular, is because they're different, hard to understand, easily hatable, and most importantly: They hit us, something that doesn't happen often.

Might as well say humans are not terrorists.

But surely there is something about the Kuran that makes it lead to Muslim terrorism in so many cases throughout history. I haven't read it, though. Inshallah in Arabic, I will in the future.

This is a pretty poorly worded question as it relies on gross generalizations. The vast majority of Muslims are not terrorist, and yet some Muslims are terrorists, these are both objective facts, unless you were to argue that terrorists claiming to be Muslim aren't actually Muslim, and yet these terrorists would claim to be Muslim themselves.

A minority of Muslims are terrorists.

Some terrorists are Muslim, so you can't possibly claim that Muslims as a whole are not terrorist. And some Islam (albeit VERY loosely grounded in the actual teachings of the prophet Mohammad) encourages and applauds acts of what we describe as terrorism--violent and destructive acts designed to inspire fear in the hearts of the unbelieving or "wicked". By virtue of high oil revenues, the Saudi government has been able to spend a great deal of its vast wealth to fund the proliferation of al Qaeda and (what was once its own very small sect of) extremist Sunni Islam throughout the Middle East and the world. This "Islam" (as the religion varies tremendously among Sunnis and the numerous Shi'a sects) favors sharp divides in gender rights and a vindictive and brutal attitude toward non-believers, and sadly it is spreading. This "Islam" is not based on the teaching of the prophet but rather of oil-funded despots and is following a very similar path as that of the Catholic Church in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Most of the Muslims I have known have had the fortune not to have had their religious beliefs muddied by politics and terrorist dogma. This is the type of Islam that I hope and expect to prevail. However, there is no denying that terrorism does exist within parts of Islam.

 There are only four types of Muslims:

1. Muslims who are terrorists and are in prison.

2. Muslims who are terrorists but haven't been caught.

3. Muslims who are potential terrorists.

4. Muslims who lie about not being potential terrorists.

Some are, look at 9/11 in the US, look at 7/7 in the UK, look at the Taliban, Hamas, all the others. They claim to be muslims. Ok, maybe Islam preaches peace, but the headlines make that hard to believe or prove.

All religion is terrorism.

Religion is designed to create fear and induce obedience, which is the dictionary definition of terrorism.

Ergo, muslims are terrorists, just like christians, jews, hindus, buddhists and whoever else believes in mumbo jumbo.

Most Muslims are not terrorists. But most terrorists are Muslims
Why do millions take to the streets because of a few (harmless) Danish cartoons in some newspaper?
Why 911?
Why put bombs on cargo planes?
Why is blood still smeared at the walls of the Lady of Salvation Church in Iraq?
Why do radical Muslims have conflicts with everyone else in the world?
Why have all attempts at reforming Islam failed?
Why do moderate Muslims not speak up?

You're missing the word "all" or "most" from your debate. Obviously, some Muslims are indeed terrorists. JSG said it well; I have nothing to add to that.

Being a Muslim does not exclude a person from being a terrorist.
It does no good for a Muslim to make the point that all Muslims are not terrorists (of course they aren't) or that there are very few Muslims who are terrorists (of course there are).

This is the point...

If you are a Muslim and there are Muslims who are causing you to say that Muslims are NOT terrorists, then you need to take your issue up with them. I realize this could be quite dangerous and make you a target but that is what it is all about.

Muslims who think that Jihad is being misinterpreted by other Muslims need to speak out against said interpretation and present their accepted interpretation.

As a "Christian" I have to do it all the time in regards to other "Christians" whose interpretation of "Christianity" results in them being a menace to society.

Me saying that Christians aren't a menace to society isn't going to work when some of them clearly are.

Get ready! No offense meant! And readers discretion advised!

YOU ARE A "TERRORIST" IF YOU FORCE DOORS ON SOMEONE (of-course intentionally!) OR/AND USE UNLAWFUL EXCESSIVE, DANGEROUS FORCE, PERIOD!

Let me define FORCING DOORS as TERROR TACTIC-Oh no! Thats not the place to go! God/luck help us! And take care!!!

 I scoff at your understanding of the term. That would make a good 1/4 of the world's population 'terrorists', and that is a safe estimate.

A terrorist is: "a radical who employs terror as a political weapon; usually organizes with other terrorists in small cells; often uses religion as a cover for terrorist activities" First hit from Google: define: terrorist
