Q "Is Islam peaceful? What do you think of Muslims?"

1. Islam by itself, like a knife, cannot benefit or harm anybody. It is by itself neither peaceful nor violent.

2. Just as the knife is used by the vast majority of its users to benefit the user and others, so is Islam used by the vast majority of its users to benefit the user and others.

3. Also, just as the knife is used by a very few of its users to do serious harm to others, so is Islam used by a very few of its users to do serious harm to others.

4. Therefore,  just as it would be wrong to blame the knife for the violence some people use it to commit, similarly it is wrong to blame Islam for the violence some people use it to commit.

5. What do you think of Muslims?

Like all reasonable people would and should, I think very well of Muslims who use Islam to benefit themselves and others. Similarly, of those Muslims  who cause serious harm to others, I think that they should be dealt with as severely as a non-Muslim would be who had caused identical serious harm.

Individual men are either violent or peaceful.

Such men can find justification for what they desire by either misunderstanding or misinterpreting whatever religion they choose to believe or "practice."

By their fruits you will know them

It's the extremists who are not peaceful.  Many Muslims have lived their lives alongside others for years, this terriost stuff is only recently created, looking at history, angry Palestinians came out of the Beaufort Declaration when their lands were handed over to a Zionist ideology which orthodox Jews are against. But much of Isis is a creation of wealthy leaders employing Mercenaries in oil rich countries and arming them and then them changing sides for more money, they are pawns in the much larger game of Quatar pipeline, Europes mulitculturalism and globalisation.
