God knows that would be the last thing in my mind if I were holding someone captive to sit and make them say 'I am a Southern Baptist, My Father is a Southern Baptist.'

And excuse people if they may jump to characterize other things as an 'islamic' thing.. It's just that the last time a terroristical killing occurred, it was in the name of Allah.. Oops..

and that is a new thing? is religion not one of the leading causes of war and conflict? currently it's islam, it used to be Christianity, what will it be next?
please don't give me that BS that islam is the worst religion in terms of sheer barbarism just because the cut off heads. almost all religions had the their fair share of bloodshed "in the name of god", one time or another. just because christianity moved along and became more mainstream, does not change it's bloody and brutal past, and it doesn mean that islam won't move along either.
this is how the world works. human history has been filled with violence.

No one's giving you any BS.. As you choose to write it, about Making claims to be the 'worst' in regards to Barbarism, I'm just pointing out a common misconception at the current moment in the world's education of Islam.. You're missing the point of my original post anyways, Get back on track, or I'll assume you are writing to the Sicilian Goddess, or Olfsaki.

Do you suppose maybe we could respect the memory of the dead and argue these issues in a new thread? I know what you're saying isn't meant to be disrespectful, but let's keep this topic as a memoriam to the spirit of Daniel Pearl and debate in a different one.

His death affected some people more than others.

is this statement not offtrack? danny pearl is dead at the hand of terrorists. does it really matter which corrupt sect of a certain religion they follow? and yes, all religions have corrupt sects.
concentrate on getting the terrorists, not generalising the muslim people.

you surely must be joking. islam being represented well in the media??? i suppose the countless hollywood films about arab- muslim terrorist hijackers are actually a tribute to their martyrdom?
islam has NEVER had a fully positive image, mainly because muslims don't really care about their image because they do not believe that their religion has to sell, they are busy trying to stay true to their faith, not look good on tv on the 700 club. and mainly because the media loves to take the most shocking aspects of it, and show that as solid proof for ratings.
blame the terrorists, not islam. even the US government seems to understand that.

You've been missing my whole point, I've blamed the terrorists on this board since Day One.. I'm not attacking Islam here, I'm not going to go back and reference all my posts where I've said that these are fundamentalists who twist every word of the Koran.. I'm just saying that there still exist people in this country who don't believe that there are muslims who would kill in the name of their god.. Because it is a Peaceful Religion.

That's all..

alright then my fault, your point is right. islam can be and is often, twisted into violence.
