The religion of peace?

I'm sure we've all heard the phrase "Islam is the religion of peace" And I'm sure that many many muslims are peacful loving people,but why is it that all we see on television are the fanatical extremists? We've all seen the images of burning embassys everyday for the past few days. Why? Because someone posted a cartoon that people found offensive! There were many cartoons published that depicted Muhammad. Some that painted him as a terrorist,and some that painted him as a man of peace. But it does'nt matter. No depiction of Muhammad is allowed. Even those that paint him in a possitive light. So what should someone do when they're offended? Some have protested peacefully,and asked for an aplogy. But the majoity have decided to riot,and burn those who dare offend them. So when I see a cartoon in the editorial section that depicts a Catholic priest as a sexual deviant should I burn down the newspaper? At least once a week a read an article that slanders the Catholic church in the newspaper. I have'nt been a Catholic for many years now,but it still bothers me due to the fact that MOST Catholic priests are good people. But I also understand that because the Catholic church made so many mistakes with the priest scandals that many people are angered. But just because I'm offended by a story about priests or a cartoon about Jesus I'm not going to slash,and burn. Is that what a religion of peace does? Hell we've even heard Osama Bin Laden himself say in his last interview that Islam is the religion of peace. And he wants a truce with the U.S. Maybe if he would have asked for a truce before his henchmen flew airplanes into buildings we could have worked something out. Look at all the countries that have had problems with muslim extremists since we did on 9-11. Italy,Russia,Brittan,Africa,and not to mention all the suicide bombers in countries that are allready mostly Muslim. If I'm standing next to someone I consider a friend and they tell me that they are going to burn down someones house because they were offended by something someone else said. You can guarantee I will do everything in my power to stop them. So if Islam is truly the religion of peace it's time they stand up against the tyrants who kill in the name of Allah,and do whatever is in their power to stop them. It's time to show the world that you truly are the religion of peace? Until next time. I'm the Angry American

Many Muslims have an anger management problem and I feel it is directly related to their religion, in how it's practiced. It's like many of them are stuck in the 12th century.
