Why is Islam so much hated in the west?

:iconsiegeonthorstadt:
Seriously, how is labeling Islam as a total enemy any different than labeling one ethnicity or one race or one group as an enemy as a whole? Both are prejudices. Both are senselessly invented enemies. It's a religion, some person has it some doesn't. There are countless different countries who have majority of their people that worship according to this doctrine, ranging from north western Africa to south eastern Asia. How is it possible that all of these people in different countries and geographies deserving an inherent and pre-accepted hatred that is somehow directed towards the general of a magically organized mind?

Please, before you say bullshit sentences like "because they blow up stuff" or "they treat their women bad" or "there is something wrong in the core of their teachings", consider the fact that western countries are doing most of the "blowing up" job in this world (France blowing up 5000 Libyans in one night, America being famous for blowing up Hiroshima with a nuclear bomb) and that the first 4 countries in the world about domestic violence against women being India, China, South Africa, New Zealand, which are all non-Islamic and not receiving any general hatred to the general of their countries, ethnicities or religions (nobody hates Hindus for the fact that 2 brides get burned every day) and also coming from the fact that Kuran being one of the most peaceful religious core-texts in the world, abstracting the Bible which contains 30+ kill messages and Christian countries doing operations all over the world that cost the lives of millions of civilians but this not being connected with these kill messages in the Bible.

Explain my why, after a plane crashes into a city, within the 30 minutes of debating about how this might have happened, the option of an "accident" is skipped right away and "Muslim person who has Islamic training camps in caves and tents and is very dangerous have done this its called osama bin laden" is laid out like it has already been thought and discussed in detail way before the plane crash has happened.

For the same reason that Communism and Socialism are still hated, associating a single attribute to 'the enemy' and having them become synonymous to a point where the attribute itself is infamous for no good reason.

The problem is not Islam, or Christianity, the problem lies in the fact that religion has lost its spirituality, it has evolved into a political tool, which is directed at the manipulation of human consciousness.

I don't mind Muslims, as long as they're not extremists.

Just like I don't mind Christians, as long as they're not extremists.

Or Pagans, as long as they're not extremists.

Or Pastafarians, as long as they're not extremists.

These days, some Americans are spoon fed with half truths and stupidity that its becoming more of a norm to not use rational thinking. But out of that bunch, sometimes they are right to fear and hate Islam for a reason. I was one of them. Its a terrible mindset on what we see on something foreign, that's our nature. The reality is that when someone gets killed, assaulted, or discriminated by a muslim, of course people will look upon that man/woman and judge their faith. That's how it was back then, that's how it is today. There is no greater evil but ignorance.

At least I was fortunate to have a history teacher to taught me how to understand the world. If I was you, I wouldn't be bothered too much about the mindset of Americans, for its not your lost. Stay truth to your faith and go on with your life.

People are very prejudiced. Also, fear and prejudism are powerful tools for getting one's way. That's why we have the troubles in our world that you have so well described.

I am very pleased with your post here, by the way; you have chosen to say many valid things that so very much need to be said.
