-    All Muslims are terrorists.
 All Muslims are Arabs.
- All Arabs are Muslims.
 All Muslims are fanatics.
- Jihad means sacred war.
- Islam leads to self sacrifice in the name of God – suicide.
-  Islam promotes violence, fighting and war.
 Islam is always related to political problems.
 Druze people are Muslims.
 Islam is not a religion but an ideology.
 The amplification of the sound of the ‘Athan’ is stated in the Qur’an.
