10 Dangerous Myths about Islam and Muslims

1. Islam is a religion of violence. By definition, if you’re a Muslim, then the natural and obvious working out of your religion is to be violent.

2. Muslims are backward in general. They don’t have a complex or high culture.

3. Muslims are Arabs. Or…Arabs are Muslims.

4. Muslims believe in Allah, a false God and they follow Muhammad.

5. Islam teaches Muslims to kill Christians and Jews.

6. Muslims cannot integrate into Western societies because Islam is incompatible with Democracy.

7. Islam is a cult, not a true mono-theistic religion like Judaism or Christianity.

8. Muslims go along with their teachers and don’t think for themselves.

9. Islam is against Jesus. They don’t believe in Him.

10. Muslims resist modernization.


Answers to the 10 Dangerous Myths about Islam and Muslims


1. Islam as a religious system has not been any more violent than Christianity or Judaism. In the name of these three religions, much harm has been done. No one would accuse “Christianity” as being violent because of the actions of the KKK, yet they call themselves “Christian.” So we cannot blame the actions of less than 1% on the whole of Islam.

2. Some of the greatest contributions to society, even Western society, has come from Islamic countries. Most historians acknowledge that the Western Renaissance which began in Italy in the 1400’s had it’s roots in the early Arab Renaissance headquartered in Baghdad. Science, math and literature have deep roots in the Arab Muslim world of the Middle Ages.

3. Of the 1.4 Billion Muslims, only about 280 million speak Arabic as their first language. The largest Muslims countries are Indonesia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is true that the Arab world still holds the greatest influence on the rest of Islam since the Qur’an is in Arabic and the holiest sites are all found in the Arab Middle East.

4. No Muslim would say they “follow Muhammad.” And the only word for “God” in Arabic is Allah. All Arab Christians worship “Allah.” So it’s a silly argument based on semantics. For more on this, read my book “Muslims, Christians and Jesus.”

5. There is not a single command in the Qur’an for Muslims to go out and kill Christians or Jews. In fact quite the opposite. Read the Qur’an for yourself. The best version and easiest to read in English is the one published by Oxford Press.

6. There is no reason to think Islam and Democracy are incompatible. Many Muslims countries have a form of Democracy. There are some political and social realities that make good Democracy difficult, but it doesn’t have to do with Islam.

7. Islam, Christianity and Judaism have always been called the three great Monotheistic religions.

8. Islam is incredibly complex with many “versions” like Christianity. Muslims are no more inclined to “go along” with what their teachers say then western Christians are.

9. Ask any Muslim “Do you believe in Jesus” and they are likely to burst into a smile and start telling you how much they love him. We agree, that there are points of misunderstanding, some of which are significant, but that doesn’t mean they don’t “like him.”

10. If Muslims resist modernization, they do so only because they see the evils of the west and don’t want them. Things like gangs, pornography, divorce and such are seen as “Western Values” and those are incompatible with Islam.

Are All Muslims Terrorists?


I feel like I'm blind at least half the time. I can't see tomorrow or even the next minute. I haven't been to most the places I go - metaphorically speaking.

Faith is being sure of what you don't see...

That's the problem with faith. If you can see it,...

Don't recall inviting the camel jocks to become the quiet takeover in America, just why is it people of their race come here with doctorates in radiology, law degrees etc. . and end up running a cig. store. They travel in couples ? Infiltrating modern America, positioning them selves in high demand business..

I need a drink..

First let me make it clear, that yes, I "approved" Gypsy's request to post that only becuase she asked me if it was alright to post it, I don't like being asked that question becuase it looks like I'm supporting what is being posted, when in fact it has nothing to do with me or what I think, its a question a member is asking me and I have to give them an answer, and if they are not breaking any rules I say fine, post it!, So I had to give an answer to Gypsy who asked me this question, so I said "sure post it", Now, why she actually asked for my approval I have no idea, other than the possibility she was concerned it would not be received well by others, and somehow by getting my approval would make it "ok". Well, don't ask me for anymore "approvals" about your posts, that is not what I do here, I did not expect you to go public and tell everyone I approved". Let me say it again, I approved your post only becuase it wasn't breaking any rules, not becuase I supported its content. I run the forum, YOU make the posts as YOU see fit, and if its out of line in such a fashion as to be breaking the rules, then you deal with the consequences. No more getting me involved with what you post. I not here for that, I run the forum I do not proof read posts for acceptable content, you use your own judgment.

Have a nice evening, sorry to be so serious but shit, I have to explain it somehow..

Gypsy, perhaps I was a bit harsh, so let me say it another way, I seriously appreciate your concern to run something past me you're not sure about, but understand I really can't intervene that way to give you advice, I have to remain somewhat neutral, thats the way I see things anyway and what works for me in running this forum, sure I can express my opinion and have fun but I can't make decisions for your content and be accountable for its content when asked if its OK to post it. I'm sorry if I seemed hard but the truth is its not for me to decide if your posts are acceptable, its your decision. You are ultimately responsible for what you post.

Now, as far as your actual post in question here, I thought it was a good read, I was eating a snack at the time it was entertaining..lol

thank you Tyler,I posted it because i thought it interesting. I should not have mentioned you.. i did,but i didn't mention because i wanted you to support me on anything Was mainly want to see if it was a good debatable subject, i should know better with these three other posters they attack anything everything i post,I am not whining, i am venting now, one ssc if she can't win she brings up old gossip that has been going on for almost five years, if she is so damn sure on everything. why is she still obsessed ,and keep rehashing?
well thanks, i am sorry after all for bringing u into this~
