Is it true that Peace is meant to be the main underlying theme of Islam? I know that Christianity is mainly about forgiveness and Judaism is about devotion.

You ever tried selling this pic of broadsheet to use for political commentary, it's a striking message showing how fanaticism is undermining what others want. A simple but very effective illustration.

Fanatics only represent a minority of the group they support. Unfortunately, they make the most headlines and misrepresent everyone else.

good way to show a great massage many people see Islam as  a violent but they do that because they only get the wrong idea and information from the wrong source and wrong people

Well for multiple reasons. But primarily because religion has many faces, denominations, cults and individual worshippers. As such, there is no moral point that a religion can be claimed to be "about". Because it is not definitional, but is based on personal interpratations of ancient texts with the original author/founder in no way able to verify whether that is what it is "about" or not.
As such, the religion will only be "about" what each individual believer believes it to be about. And for the non-believers, it will be about what the followers that make the biggest impact on the world at large say that it's about.

Which segways into the second point. That point being that I just don't find peace to be something that is generally associated with Islam. Islam is pretty much THE most violent and fascist religion on the planet. At least in terms of the larger religions.
So to claim that it is about peace is, quite frankly, rather ridiculous. In my personal opinion...

 .לֹא-יִשָּׂא גוֹי אֶל-גּוֹי חֶרֶב, וְלֹא-יִלְמְדוּ עוֹד מִלְחָמָה  Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Isaiah Chapter 2 line 4. This line I feel is very important to all nations and religion. Once it becomes true between all of us then, and only then will there be true peace. Together if we fight against the hate and fear we can combat it. Together we can make the world a better. We are all brothers and sisters, following different paths and faiths, but still one huge family on this blue and green planet. The sooner we can accept that, the better of we will all be.

This reminds me of the line from "The Dark Knight", where Alfred says "Some men just want to watch the world burn." The problem with ISIS is that they are effective fighters because of their ruthlessness, and sometimes, unfortunately, that ends up overwhelming those who would be better for that part of the world.

The only way to combat them and others like them is with education, compassion and patience for all.

Frankly, I don't think Islam is a religion of peace. They have people who are peaceful and not psychotic, of course, and thankfully these people make up the bulk of Islam. I think most members of Islam want peace because they are human beings. And I think praying in general causes "peace" of mind. But that is different.

And I genuinely hope ISIS gets blown to ashes, while maintaining a respect for the Muslims out there who do not bother me and still practice their beliefs.

But Islam as a philosophy...I've read too much of the Koran to think it's healthy for people. I think it is a very radical philosophy that enforces black-and-white mentalities, discourages basic human nature by denying pleasure to an extreme, it is far too strict in their basic practices (prayer, traditions, ETC), and then there is the woman's right thing (which I know is more of a national issue than a religious one but it is still more prominent than any of the other western religions), and I think not drinking is a sin in itself.

But with all that said, I bare no resentment towards Muslims and I will be the first to stand up for their right to be different. It's a religion of discipline, of history, of culture and one that brings people together in an area of the world that needs that. But of peace? Not even close.

Not trying to enforce my opinion on you or anything.
Just thought it would be nice to share that there are various opinions on everything.

I'm a Muslim and I've taken many courses on Islam in the span of my education life.
All I can say, Islam is more about peace than you think it isn't.
In fact, the word "Islam" itself comes from the word "peace".

It's perfectly fine, I take no offense to sharing opinions. I was hoping I would get a discussion out of that post. :) And I mean you no disrespect by responding or sharing my own beliefs.

I don't think it is a peaceful religion in the slightest. You can SAY Islam is about peace. Anyone can SAY it is. They can say that till they are blue in the face. But that doesn't make it true. Rather than saying it is peaceful, evidence ought to be presented. And evidence disproves that claim (for me).

I have found that the Islamic community is full of extremes. There are practically no 'maybes', only rights and wrongs, and this black and white mentality is not healthy in the slightest.  Being *at* peace is a kind of peace, and Islam doesn't promote that, the only kind of peace that can really change the world. Which is ironic, but Islam encourages its followers to go out and change the world, sometimes via conversion (like the Greater Jihad tells). And then you look at the current state of the Islamic Nations today. And in modern day England.

Sharia Law might be the biggest piece of evidence that disproves Islam being a peaceful religion.

See, saying "Islam is more about peace than you think it isn't" is missing the point. And the point is that Islam has very real flaws that don't work in many modern societies and prevent people from accepting it. And in the year 2014, there are SO many things in Islam that just plain don't work anymore. It is not a lost cause and it is a beautiful faith, but it's far, far from perfect and its flaws should be acknowledged, especially by its followers like yourself. If you draw wisdom from a single source, you'll be denying yourself the full human experience. Only by exploring different opinions, by thinking you also might be missing out on something, can you expand your mind. And maybe, help your Islamic brothers through your experience.

I think I know what this is in refrence too :-( ,

I'm an atheist, but all the Muslims I know are lovely kind people and I hate the way the media twists stuff to show only extremist's,
But I've never been one to trust the media and no Muslim would condone the actions of such extremist's,

Please don't give up :-)
