There was a big debate on our Facebook page recently about attitudes towards Muslims so we addressed the points people brought up:

Islam, is it a violent religion?
Media and polls: what to believe?
What does Jihad mean?
Why aren’t Muslims speaking out against ISIS and terrorism?
How religious is ISIS really?
Will violence ever solve anything?
