If you asked me whether I liked being a Muslim four years ago, I would probably have said, “No.”
I remember talking with some friends and them casually joking about the misunderstanding between Muslims and the typical American. They argued that Americans would never be able to grasp that Muslims are not the fictional stereotype of bomb-dropping and women-oppressing individuals media outlets have made them out to be.
Terrorism is not Islam. Murdering human beings is not Islam. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is not Islam.
