To rehmanzu :

U said “How can we judge if their claim is truly correct? Can these claims be tested rationally? What proofs are available to support their claims?”.
Ill answer u my friend, it’s a long story, I hope I can make it clear for u, it started from Adam and Eve (which u as Chinese don’t believe with it) that was the first message sent from the sky (God) to the earth, and after that many messages were sent like Christianity and Judaism(all they ask to believe with one God “Allah”, Supreme and Eternal, Infinite and Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator and Provider)  to prepare the human to understand the last and final message which is the Islam.
Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the message and guidance, which God (Allah) revealed to all prophets. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ismael, Isaac, David, Moses, Jesus. But the message, which was revealed to prophet Mohammed, is Islam in its comprehensive, complete and final.
The Quran is the last word of Allah  and basic source of Islamic teachings and laws, and u can in it all the real stories of the previous religions.
U said “Or is it true that Islam does not present teachings which can stand today’s scientific age? How about other religions?”.
Islam is suitable in every place and time, but some misunderstanding of it, and some bad show in the media can show it as do u said.
I can tell more if u like, and I have some books in both Chinese and English if u likes to know more about this nice and natural  religion.

media perceptions


>But I really wanted to find out why do people associate Islam with all the >evil deeds? Is it the case that we do not know much about this religion?

I believe this is correct.  People are naturally suspicious about powerful forces, especially when they know little about them.

The extremist elemants of Islam tend to make the most noise in the media.  For this reason, people tend to associate Islam with its most radical and hateful elemants.  

How is the Islamic world portrayed in China?

Islam and extremism

Rehmanzu,

One of the underlying factors in Islam is the Koran, or Quran.  This "holy book", or bible, leaves a lot of its passages open for interpretation.  One Cleric will say that it means this, while another Cleric will say it means something totally different.

When it comes to Islamic fundamentalism and extremism, it's usually the Cleric with the biggest mouth that wins the "Interpretation argument".  It was quite common with the Ayatollah Khomeini, and is common with the current Cleric who is causing so much grief for coalition forces in Iraq, today.

I guess you could almost equate it with driving in this country..."He who honks his horn loudest and longest has the right-of-way" <GRIN>

Gtnbia,  
I agree 100 per cent.  One thing is for sure.  No matter where you come from, I think everyone will agree that religions have been responsible for starting more wars than any other reason.
