things like nationalism,and isms in general are frowned upon by my fellow muslims. because any way of life or thinking that conflicts with even a basic tenet of the quran or hadiths can't ever be accepted. the thing that irks me is these so called muslim leaders are not real muslims. our faith is for everyone. to us all humans are supposed to be equal. so how can we hate others just because they are different. the true muslims who lived near the prophets time at best just gave a small tax to non muslims living their terrority and the funny thing is those non muslims were some of the wealthiest people and most accomplished in muslim lands at those times so clearly some part of history got distorted. Ssomething is wrong when the so called leaders of the islamic world are doing clearly unislamic things and the west generalizes that about my faith. Our faith is not something we as muslims should compromise on; if we change one little thing to appease others then that'll open a pandoras box and before you know it a few generations later your own children will be believing in a 2 gods or something completely different.
