Hey, read Quran and Sunnah , you can see how peaceful Islam is. You can see what Islam instructions call for. Your minds all are distorted by the propaganda of people who don't respect Islam just because it calls for peace whereas they can't live without blood . Yes there were wars in the Islamic history, and this is present in the histires of all nations not only Islamic nation. But the difference is Islamic people never fighted innocents or people who live peacefully with muslims, Mulslims fighted to defend themselves because states in the past all tried to kill Islam and to fight muslims . Muslims were defending themselves, and when muslims ruled , fair is for all . But what happens when Americans or Israelis rule ?? Millions of innocent victims . Tell me what crimes or massacres you know that were committed by muslims ?? tell me just to be clear . Finally, ask yourself now : Why Islam is the fastest growing religion ?? Especially in Europe ?? and by the way, Muslims don't want to destroy the west !! . Muslims love peace and love all humans . But when muslims are killed and their lands are occupied , they surely will defend themselves !
