The following is just the occupational disease:

while there is an entrenched misconception about Islam, a "natural" association between Muslims and radicalisms, I might as well provide what many uprisings have been trying to fight against:

Really, why is to kill in the name of "freedom and democracy" so much better than to kill in the name of God?

US is not a Christian nation. Radicalists are not representing their nations or their co-religious fellows either. Why such double standards?
 


When the US military were killing other peoples around the world, did you denounce the US?

Then why do you expect all Muslims to denounce radicalists’ violence? First, many of them did, but the media coverage only loves "bad Muslim" imageries.

Second, your distance from serial killers is as far as ordinary Muslims and Islamist radicalists. Do you feel you are responsible for those who are American serial killers?

US kills lots of people around the world for 60 decades that claim millions of lives. Just like US is not a Christian nation. Muslim radicalists are not representing their nations or their co-religious fellows either.

Really, why is to kill in the name of "freedom and democracy" so much better than to kill in the name of God?

If you feel you are not responsible when CIA was replacing new leaders in Africa, why do you expect ordinary Muslims to feel responsible whenever things went wrong?

When the ambassador was killed in Libya, did you see that thousands of people walk to the streets saying that they denounced this attack? Ordinary Muslims. They have to do apologize again and again for things that THEY HAVE NOT DONE. Why upholding such a double standard? I am a Christian myself. I never had to defend my faith even though there are lots of those who claim Christian faith doing bad things around the world, including in the USA.

Stop saying they never denounce. They did, so often, but it is the orientalist media that silenced them, not them being numb. I lived in a Muslim land long enough to say so.

Read scholarly works: Reel bad Arabs: How Hollywood vilifies a people and Islamophobia a challenge for us all. Please. Stop spread hatred and thinking that a people are just fundamentally inferior than you. It is you that is imposing double standard.
