What do you think İslam?
Most Helpful Guy
I think Islam is a religion of far greater contradictions than any other. You have the moderates here on GAG who go on about how it's actually a religion of peace and that the media is portraying it bad and yet at the same time, nearly ever conceivable modern religious extremist hems from that religion.
Begs the question, is it something in the Muslim mentality or something wrong with the religion that it brings forth such destructive individuals.
Or perhaps it's just the political circumstances currently present in the Middle East and Africa - perhaps the turmoil is because of the messed up system that Post-Colonialism left as well as the Post-Ottoman empire collapse. After all, Islam and it's civilizations used to be more enlightened and advanced than the European Christian ones back in the day.2
