Very often anti Islamist and christian missionaries cite Hadith, History and Exegeses (tafsir) to malign Islam. They misquote, twist its actual meaning and represent weak sources as the most imperative article of Islam.

Have you watched the video sister? Do you agree with it or disagree?

Well I think what they're talking about in the video is stuff that happens sometimes. But there are also people who criticise Islam or certain versions of Islam from a place of honesty, just as there are people who defend it from a place of honesty.

The small problem that many Muslims seem to miss is that because Islam has no central authority, no one person or group, speaks for Islam. Given the endless array of opinions, on virtually every topic under the sun, it is understandable that people might misquote here and there due to the mind-numbing nature of Islamic "scholarly" works, their tortured thought processes and heavy reliance on circular reasoning.

Besides this, it's not the anti-Islam crowd that Muslims should be worried about, they should be worried about self-proclaimed Muslims who take many texts literally. Perhaps if more Muslims honed their critical thinking skills they wouldn't have to defend against paper tigers and might actually get around to writing cogent arguments.

This ^^^.
My opinion of Islam has taken a nose dive since I joined RF and listened to modern Muslims and their opinions. I take the opinions of people who are obviously biased against Islam with a big dose of salt. It's the obviously biased in favor of Islam people who I learned a lot from here.

Wot he said. In their rush to call out Islamophobia/phrenia/whatever the **** it's called now, Muslims point out that the vast majority of victims of groups like Islamic State and Al Qaeda are Muslims. What they seem to miss when saying this, is that Muslims interpreting Islamic scripture in certain ways are the ones causing problems for Muslims in these situations. Usually this fact is glossed over in their scrambling over each other to blame the West or the Jews or the Zionists for their problems. Literally all the anti-Islam crowd have to do is sit back and point out these situations as & when they arise to support their arguments.

There is nothing on the planet more dangerous than someone who thinks they know the will of god/the gods. You want to find the culprit for Islam's negative image, I suggest looking to the people strapping explosives to their chests and performing a modern reenactment of the worst parts of the 7th to 12th Centuries.

What bigots do is a pinprick in comparison. The "problem children" of Islam are clearly minuscule in comparison to the number of perfectly good, decent believers. But their voices are by far the loudest.

There are many things Here:
1. There are those who are honest, but don't understand Islam.

2. There is also the problem of sects and divisions among the Muslims, which makes it difficult to know who represents Islam.

3. Then, many orientalists and others are used to overlook the views of the minorities within Islam, such as the Shias, the Sufis and so on.

4. There is also the problem of the fake Hadiths, and it's difficult for non-scholars to fully understand the ways of identifying the authentic Hadiths.

5. And finally there are those who hate Islam and intentionally twist the truth.

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I'd say they, when they do it, do it out of context and/or not from the original text, which could seriously give different meanings. Kinda like mixing Islam with Muslims, the mistake many people do.

There are plenty of sites that take things out of context and use poor translations to vilify Islam...

The ones doing the most damage to Islam are those Muslims the most well versed in the Forer Effect.
