My experience with Muslims is in stark contrast to what the media paints them as. The Muslims I know are actually some of the most peaceful people on the planet. As for Islam it would depend on the ideology or school of thought of Islam it is.

I grew up around Muslims and I never had a problem with them. In fact they were pretty friendly and easy to speak with. I'm not into any religious books or ideology, but Islamic art and architecture is kind of interesting to me.

It's just the extremists that I have a problem with.

In my perceived experience through the media.

A Buddhist extremist will go vegetarian, shave their head and start loving animals.

A Christian extremist will preach to everyone they see and touch themselves to Jesus.
Some may resort to racism and join cults like the KKK or the SS.

A Catholic extremist might go to Rome and seek out the pope. Visit Jerusalem.

A Muslim extremist, will find a radical way to express his/her believe in the most violent and destructive way possible.

An Atheist extremist will grow an affinity for cats and express themselves with memes.

probably nuking the middle east would be a good idea, especially israel. would solve a good portion of problems we're having today.

I couldn't care less about the adults. The kids need to be spared. Someone should go in and kidnap them.

In General? I have no problems with Islam and Muslims. It's the fanatics & jihadists that cause the problems. But then again fanatics of any religion/belief cause problems. For example: Timothy McVeigh ring a bell?

I don't really care what somebody's religion is, as long as they're nice people, the same for Muslims.

Sure, I think what some of these extremists have done is disgusting, but there are bound to be extremists just as bad in all other religions. To judge over 1 billion by a few handful seems pretty silly, if you ask me.

The Western media can be kinda annoying when it paints the picture that 'Islam is evil' and 'Whites are the best' (e.g. when a white Christian or atheist person commits a crime, their religion isn't mentioned, but when a black person, a Muslim or a person of an ethnic minority does, their religion and/or ethnicity is clearly stated in the headlines.)

So, what do I think of Muslims? No differently than of anybody else.

Living in the UK I've had a lot of contact with a lot of muslim people. I'm not racist or judge others by there beliefs but rather the way they act. As a matter of fact my best friends are muslims. Islam actually goes against violence and my friends told me it stood for peace. Just because the media says muslims are all terrorists and the enemy doesn't mean you should believe them. Only a minority act this way.
