Paris attacks: 'It's lazy to say France's terrorist attacks nothing to do with Islam', says Culture Secretary Sajid Javid - UK Politics - UK - The Independent


Take note: Sajid Javid is a Muslim


It is what it is...that Islam plays a factor into these terrorist activities. Accept that fact and tackle the problem from there. What can we do about it? What can muslims do about it?

He added: “It would be wrong, because you can’t get away from the fact that these people are using Islam, they are taking a great religion, a very peaceful religion adhered to by more than a billion people around the world, and using it as their tool to carry out their horrible activities.”
Did you read the article? He's said the same thing many Muslims have said. Lol, smh...

Be insulting to other religions and you'll be met with protest or ignored. Insult Islam and your life will be endangered. Write a book, author goes into hiding. Make a film, executed on the street. Draw a cartoon, hide for your lives or face execution. If Islam is a religion of peace then why is it today the only major religion that reacts with deadly violence for a perceived insult?
