  • I think they are peace-loving people. Yes, there are Muslim terrorists but there are also Catholic terrorists, Protestant terrorists...

    We can not judge a large group of people by the actions of a few.

  • I personally do nore for the way their women are forced to dress and behave but I suppose it's not by force really. It's a choice they make, it's just not for me.

  • The extremists freak me out, but then again, ANY extremists from ANY group freak me out, not just Muslims.

    For the good Muslim people though...I admire their dedication to their religion and I agree with thisnametaken, I think they're peace-loving. I've never met a mean Muslim person.

  • I dont have an opinion really. I had a friend who was married to one and she was a bit upset he tried to shove his religion down her and the kids throat. That kinda turned me off to him, but not the religion per say. I also dont think all muslims are bad but to say they are peace loving is not true either. There are both good & bad and not all are peace loving. I am guessing the ones who cut of Daniel Pearls head werent so peaceful.

  • My sister in law is a Muslim. She converted when she was 15 and married a man from Syria When she was 21. Having spent alot of time with her and her family, I've had an opportunity to learn more about the religion and culture. I am not a Muslim nor do I plan to convert but I am glad that I have learned from her. I'm glad my children will learn from them. Only uneducated, ignorant people are afraid. As a whole they are nothing to be afraid of. It's too bad that a few that lost their way, have given the rest such a bad name. I guess you could say that about America, too.

  • I have no real opinion...I don't judge people based on their religion. I can only judge people on an individual basis.

  • I don't have a problem with Muslims. Just because someone is Muslim doesn't mean they are a terrorist.

  • They are some of the nicest people I have ever met

  • I have friends who are muslim, and friends who aren't muslim but look arabic. So no, I'm not afraid of them. I'm more scared of middle aged caucasian men. Those are usually the rapists and the pedophiles.
