Islam means justice, fairness, equality, humanity and kindness! Many people used to be enemies of Islam and at the end of the day they themselves became defenders of Islam.
Apart from very cunning, creative and expensive propaganda against Islam, Islamic history is fairly better than others!
A few Muslims who are reacting violently to free themselves from years of oppression and subjugation can not be used as example of violence in Islam as many non-Islamic freedom movements have some violent records.
Most importantly, Islam is not anyone’s private property and anyone can enjoy the beauty and majesty of Islam by joining in Islam.
Remember, Islam is not property of Bin Laden or Bush.
