and makes alot of sence obviously. Sadly the masses are asses and wouldnt care to watch something like this and seriously think about it. That and as the old saying goes "The few ruin it for the many.". Thats' all I say before I turn this political/religious lol
What he said in the end was good, but it doesn't go far enough. It's not about mass media spoon feeding us garbage, public opinion on islam stems quite a bit by their own actions. You do not see any outrage from "moderates" on their side when something this guy consider's a hijack occurs. But you do see terrorists blowing stuff up all the time - just look from the 1970's onwards.
He's right that the bible says a LOT of crap that can be considered illegal activity in this day and age. Unfortunately for us, there's stuff like wahhabism being practiced, which takes things literally.
If you research islam as this fellow wants you to - you'll understand one key difference between it and Christianity: The bible is various people's interpretation of events. A lot of it written after the fact. Christians even held meetings to decide official stances on topics. The koran on the other hand, IS THE WORD OF GOD. You cannot say there was a typo made. So of course you see wahhabism. God said this is what I'm supposed to do, god said these things, you can never go out of style or advance past what God himself said.
I can chat a lot on this topic, but I think the fact that the koran = words from god directly is ultimately the reason why we're never going to get past this.
^^ Interesting. He also contradicts himself or appears to. He says "they" want you to think Islam is a violent religion. "They" do so by putting someone on the news who does not understand Islam. "They" do this to foster stereotypes. (side note: I have always wanted to know: Who the hell are "they?")
Anyway, he then later says the media does it all for ratings and ultimately for money. These are two incongruous theories. The ratings idea sounds a great deal more plausible anyway.
All that need be said is any parable, story or writing that places unsubstantiated belief above evidence and reason has great potential to be dangerous. "My religion is the real religion" has no meaning.
I don't want to rag on the guy in the video, but I wanted to mention that words themselves are very important, and you cannot assume that a word you understand has the same meaning to the other person.
For example, you can say you want peace. The other guy can say he wants peace, but the very meaning of "peace" is completely different. What you understand to mean harmony and lack of war, can mean to the other guy all of mankind united under islam. So you can shake hands, smile for the photographers, then sign documents; but you'll leave the room with completely different agendas.
