    I'm a published author. Doing something for a new novel. Muslims terrorists attack the USA as revenge for the killing of OBL kinda thing - HOWEVER, the first character introduced is a Muslim American who looks at Muslims terrorists, the same way Christians (like myself) look at the KKK. This character ends up saving the day - or at least helping the main character do so.
    I need help with insights from Muslims who view the message of the Qu'Ran as one of peace and as it says in the Sura "Respect and revere the devout Jew and Christian, for their rewards from Allah will be just as great as yours."

    Anyone want to help with insights, verses to support this view etc...?

    Don't forget the fatwa against him and his family.

    FYI, I doubt any Muslim views the extremists the same way Christians view the KKK. The KKK is not actively involved in killing people who disagree with them, nor does it blow churches in order to settle doctrinal disputes. Muslims, on the other hand, will kill you, and your family, if you disrespect Islam, and have no problem blowing up Mosques full of other Muslims that try to preach a less violent alternative.

    How many close Muslims friends do you have? How long have you personally lived with or among them? Muslim weddings you've been to? Family gatherings even? How many times have you gone to mosques to discuss scripture?

    Yeah, thought so.

    Well thank you for the regurgitation of www.whackjobsWhoDontKnowSh1t.com

    Which would be as accurate as saying they learned all they needed to know about us from Abu Graihb? We learned all we needed to know about Americans from Timothy McVeigh?

    It's cool. Ignorance and prejudice are not exactly rare among "internet people".

    Oh yeah, and there was that guy the Christians dragged down an asphalt road until he died, in Vidor Texas...

    We could both go on ad nauseum with examples of religion corrupted, couldn't we. Guess what? You're not going to convince me that all Muslims everywhere are evil and I'm not going to remove your prejudice. Duh.

    Islam is at the top of the list throughout history, globally, with a rise in the past 15-20 years.
