Hi brothers and sisters,

I don't know how it is in your country and whether you pay attention to this but in my country, England, I read and hear news about radical Islam on daily basis whether it is a British Muslim going to Syria and makes threats back to the UK , to his own homeland, or some conservative Muslim family beat up their daughter for seeing a non Muslim person.

 I don't intentionally read news about Islam but this religion comes up on news almost daily,so it's hard to ignore...

When there is something negative is reported in the press the moderate Muslims always say that this is not a true Islam as Islam is a religion of peace, but surely there is no smoke without fire?

 Most of radicals are very religious Muslim people on one hand and on the other there pious Muslims who are nice and moderate who follow the same religion,so why there seems to be two branches of Islam a moderate and a radical? Does the Qur'an have to do anything with its interpretation?

Also, do you think the Western news constantly try to pick out something negative to report about the Muslims? I mean I don't hear anything negative reported about Jews,Christians,Hindus or any other religion, just Islam...is it just the media being selective?

For example, according to the USA statistics most of terrorists offenses in America are committed by Latinos, even Jewish terrorist offenses in the USA stand at 7%, while Islamic terrorist offenses stand at 6%, but you never hear about Jewish terrorist acts in America blowing things up etc only Islam is reported constantly on the news...why is that? And what terrorist offenses are committed by the Jews in the USA anyway according to this statistics that we never hear about?

Ps. So, what kind of terrorist crimes do Jews commit in the USA that we dont hear about?

The article links to a list of all terrorist actions on US soil from 1980-2005 from a 2005 publication on terrorism published by the FBI.  You probably haven't heard about most of these.

True Islam is the one that conquered the Eastern Roman (aka Byzantine) Empire and tried to conquer Europe from the 600s on. Some would say they're still trying to conquer Europe even today, by somewhat different means.

Muslims say that media use their religion selectively in a sort of Islamaohobic campaign manner, but I think if the Muslims themselves stopped doing appalling atrocities and interstated more in England showing that they are reaching out to non Muslim in an open way instead of isolating themselves from the British society then the media wouldn't have anything bad to report about them

I'm pretty sure that's what Dan-Romania meant (or maybe I'm overly optimistic  Lips Sealed).
