Shhh... don't go around telling the Muslims that. Some of them don't know it yet, and if they believe you the nicer ones might start killing people.

I think you might just be a little bit obsessed.

Also, she sounds crazy.

Well, the video seemed to be a disconnected rant from a crazy person, not exactly something that agrees with the title.

Though I couldn't watch much. The voice, the tone, the unrelated subjects... all off-putting.

She actually got to 2:58 before she said something disagreeable about Islam. Until she started reading the internet comments, her point was a decent one. Saudi Arabia should be more tolerant. Her mistake is equating Saudi Arabia with Islam (and also reading YouTube comments and also wearing that top).

I haven't actually watched the video yet, but this comment made me press the "I Agree" on the OP.

She's a bit of a cutie. Does her top fall down?

Haven't you started this thread like 20 times already? Rather than starting a new one every couple of days, why don't you just stick with the 20 others you've got going already?

It's funny, I'm not a huge fan of Islam (or any other religion) but I do get to predominantly Muslim countries and interact with lots of Muslims. Other than countries which were active theaters of war, I've never be threatened, harassed, abused or even mildly chastised (other than a disagreement about change with a Turkish taxi driver). If Muslims were all that non peaceful, I'm pretty sure I would not be here right now. I'm not saying there's not some reforming to be done but there is also not a knife in every hand waiting to slit your throat.

Oh yeah, the people who run that country are animals. But you're right Saudi Arabia is not Islam.

If you have met real life Muslims and are friends or even acquaintances with them then it is more and more difficult to be in the 24/7 grip of sheer bottom-bursting terror of the foam-flecked bearded medievalists under the bed.

That level of paranoia gets tiring and tiresome after a while.

I hope so; it will mean that someone finds my comments worth reading.

No information presented from Islamic texts. Just ranting about this Muslim and that one.

She does reference the Muhammad/Aisha situation, which is recorded in the ahadith (not that she would know what they are, of course), but whether that is actually true or not has no bearing on whether or not Islam is a religion of peace.

Pretty lame. She may as well just have titled it "Muslim countries and people suck!" because that's all she gets across to me as I was watching.

Islam is just as peaceful as any other religion.

Islam comes in many flavours. They dont seem to like each other very much.
