Objections to Islam Islam doesn’t give any freedom. Apostates are killed in Islam. The saying that “there is no compulsion in Islam” is just a lame and is basically for western consumption. Most and almost every Muslim says that the non killing of apostate verse has been changed in the further revelations. It is a clear concept among Muslims that if they are living in a state were there is no borne out rule for the killing of apostates, they are obliged to kill the apostates by themselves, according to sariah
The western public opinion started to see Islam as being inherently violent as they see Islamic State's (IS) actions. Sheila Carapico argues that "while lynchings, hate crimes, and family violence in America are individual exceptions to a sound social ethic, but ‘Islamic terrorism' is portrayed as if it were a religious expression" (1997, p.30). Violence is mainly motivated by some kind of political aims. Therefore, what we should be looking for is politically motivated Muslims, not the Islam itself. Muslims with a political aim in their mind are called the Islamists.
mysticism and paradoxical poetic rhetoric in his definition of historical Islam thus discarding the predominated form of Islam, i.e. the Islam which is restricted to the Text. To him, Islam is the hermeneutical engagement with the source in a way that ultimately produces meaning
Islam is still deemed as a religion of war, violence and blood-spilling sacred Jihad. However, these assumed hostility and aggressiveness of Islam was deeply planted in the mind of extremists and the western people, whose opinions mostly are shaped by the media, by the 9/11 attacks and bombing. (Qaradawi, 2010) It is also safe to assumed that these acts of “Jihad”, are misunderstood and misinterpreted by extremists of both sides, are all derived from the Quranic verses, around 109 verses, which encourage Muslims to fight the infidels. Their mistake is de-contextualization. In de-contextualized, any language can lose its actual meaning and intention, and become misinterpretations.
Extremism has become one of the most significant phenomena in the early 21st century, it has dominated the global politics and led to the sudden rise in violence resulting in the massive loss of life and instability all over the globe. However, when one talks about extremism, the very first thing strikes in our mind is Islamic fundamentalism, which has really changed the image of Islam and Muslim, which is in conflict with Muslim’s own view of Islam and Muslims. Extremism not only stems from Islamic fundamentalism, but from the “fundamentalism” whose two complementary nodes i.e., Far-right groups and Islamic fundamentalism have dominated the global politics. On one hand, far-right groups like English defence league and National action network
Asoo Othman Dr. Ceron ENG203 November 7-2016 Islamic Jihad in the Past and Today Jihad is usually connected with Islam and Muslims, but in all religions, such as Christianity, Judaism and political and economic ideologies which are Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, the idea of Jihad is found on them .Jihad is the concept that mentions in Quran 41 times, and it is the motivation term that encouraged Islamic people to rise the Islamic state or Political Islam in 19th and 20th Centuries. Jihadist refers to the person who believed that Islam must govern whole Islamic state and anyone who wants to prevent it, they should kill them and create violence. There are many confusing ideas about the word of Jihad between now and in the past. In the past,
It usually does not cross our minds that just because one person had done something unlawful, it does not mean that others of the same race, culture, or religion participate in the same actions. When several Muslim men attacked the United States as a way to “demoralize…and weaken the country,” there was a shift towards the acceptance that Islam’s ultimate goal was “to conquer America” (Pipes 2), and that that was the “central purpose of Muslim existence in the United States” (Pipes 3). This goes hand in hand with the belief that Islam and Islamic extremism are practically the same thing. Which is completely wrong because there are
Because of previous terroristic Acts by terrorist groups, violence is now associated with Islam. Only because these acts were caused in the name of Islam. In the post September 11th, 2001, environment government officials as well as sizable portions of the General Public have found it very easy to place immigrant Muslims and their families, including american-born children, into the category of existential culture and security threat"(Elfenbein). After September 11th 2001, all Muslims were alienated, even ones that were born on American soil. The public was blinded and all they could see in all Muslims are terroristic act and violence.
At the same time, a comparative deterioration has occurred in secular terrorism. The old ideologies of class struggle world had experienced such as anticolonial liberation, and secular nationalism have been challenged by a new and dynamic infusion of sectarian ideologies.

What is religious terrorism? What are its fundamental attributes?
