Sorry this is from a comedy site, but a friend posted this the other day, and I thought it had some great points. There are a few curse words on the second page if you're offended by that...just a warning before you go to the site.
A few parts that stood out to me.....
"A conservative commentator recently made headlines by claiming 10 percent of all of the world's Muslims are terrorists. An amazing claim, considering that equals 150 million terrorists and if each were to pull off an attack killing just 40 people, they could exterminate all non-Muslim life on earth.
Either they're not all that dedicated to terrorism, or the claim is utter insanity."
Do all Muslim women wear veils?:
No...."for instance, in France they have about 3 million Muslim women. French police decided to figure out how many of them wore burqas and/or niqabs and found the number to be ... 367.
......Not 367,000, but 367, a number so small that from a statistical point of view, it's barely enough to register as a margin of error. As for the rest of Europe, the numbers are even more disastrous for the burqa business (for instance, Belgium has 500,000 Muslims, a couple dozen wear the burqa)."
"Of the five most populous Muslim-majority nations, four of them have elected female heads of state.
So there's a fantastic chance that in 2012, Sarah Palin will be campaigning for an achievement that Muslim ladies have already accomplished."
Are Muslims stuck in the dark ages?:
"In the same way that not all Christians are Young Earth Creationists, plenty of modern Muslims see room for interpretation in the Quran. In fact, 45 percent of American Muslims in one poll said they see evolution as "the best explanation for the origin of human life on Earth," which isn't so shabby, considering only 24 percent of evangelical Christians believed the same. The percentage of Muslims embracing the scientific explanation for the origin of life was about the same as Americans as a whole (48 percent)."

Does any of this surprise you?
Or will you continue to judge an entire religion by a few extremists?
I agree the news only focuses on the fringe of any group because it's more interesting to watch, no one is going to tune in to see the average Muslim, Christian or Jew going to work, taking care of their family, and being a good and caring citizento their neighbor. This applies across the board to any group of people.
