Are Muslims Barbaric and Violent as the Media portrays?
And Again….Where To Draw The Line?
Please be sincere and honest to yourself first… you will never uncover the oppression and lies of the media against Islam and the Muslims unless you keep aside the preconceived notions about Islam that you have been spoon fed for several decades through the Media..
I know very well that most of you hate Muslims and Islam from the depths of your hearts.We dont blame you for that!
We, as Muslims are partially to take the blame for our horrible behavior and unworthy character that many of us have portrayed to you…The other half of the blame goes to the Media (ABC,BBC,CNN,Al Jazeera ,etc) on how they portray us to fulfill their well sponsored Agenda.
If you are sincere in clearing the dust off your eyes about Islam and Muslims, please do not judge Islam by the actions of the Muslims.
Muslims, by definition, are a group of human beings who are mostly born to parents who are Muslims or have Muslim names. They don’t necessarily represent the teachings of Islam.
In every community, there are Black Sheeps. But the Media, takes the Black Sheeps among the Muslims, portrays them in big screens and says to you – ” Look! This is how All Muslims are!”
So if you want to clear off the dust and look at Islam as it sincerely is..please read the Quran ( Islamic scripture). If you can, please get a copy of the Quran with translation of whichever language you speak best, at any authentic Islamic book stores around your place or ask your Muslim friend for a copy. If you are unable to get one, then please visit any authentic Islamic websites which includes –
“I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians. If you had any heart in you, you would be crying for the Palestinians.”

“Such a merciless and cowardice way of waging a warfare. At least the palestinian fighters are fighting against Israeli tanks and the Israelis are fighting against children and women, and that is despicable.”

The Israeli army should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for its “unimaginable restraint” in Gaza, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, said during his address to the Christians United for Israel Summit in Washington on Tuesday.
“Some are shamelessly accusing Israel of genocide and would put us in the dock for war crimes,” Dermer said.
“But the truth is that the Israeli Defense Forces should be given the Nobel Peace Prize… a Nobel Peace Prize for fighting with unimaginable restraint,” he added.
The Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that 50 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces on this same day in the Gaza Strip.
According to ministry data, 644 Palestinians were reported killed in Israeli attacks since the offensive began two weeks ago. Ashraf al-Qidra, a spokesman for the Palestinian Ministry of Health, adds that this number includes 161 children, 66 women, and 35 elderly people.
al-Qidra highlighted the problems faced by the ministry in evacuating the dead and wounded in several areas as Israeli forces had impeded the movement of ambulances and rescue teams.
In addition, over 4,000 Palestinians have sustained injuries during the offensive and hospitals are running dangerously low on medical supplies amid the most deadly sustained Israeli assault on the besieged coastal enclave since 2008.
Also on Tuesday, Israeli forces shelled a school of the The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinia Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
“UNRWA condemns in the strongest possible terms the shelling of one of its schools in the central area of Gaza,” the humanitarian organization said in a statement.
“The location of the school and the fact that it was housing internally displaced persons had been formally communicated to Israel on three separate occasions. We have called on the Israeli authorities to carry out an immediate and comprehensive investigation.”
During the offensive, more than 135,000 Gazans have fled their homes, seeking shelter in 69 schools run by UNRWA.
Israel has called on Palestinians to evacuate some 44 percent of Gaza because it is targeting the areas. However, no humanitarian zones or humanitarian corridors were designated.
