Muslim
The word I chose to write my argumentative essay is “Muslim.” It means a person who follows the religion of Islam. Islam began in Mecca and Media at the start of seventh century. According to history of Islam-Wikipedia, The Prophet Muhammad introduced Islam in 610 A.D. after receiving what he maintained to be “divine revelations.” Muhammad imposed the Quran, which is the holy book of Islam. However, Muslim is used differently in different communities. People in the United States, especially most of the white people are thinking that Muslim people are terrorists. Nevertheless, Muslim people are not the people who kill others. They are just a people who follow their religion’s

As a young experienced man who was living in East Africa surrounded by Muslim people, I don’t think Muslim people are extremist. They were very kind people because I have seen them helping others, who are sick and giving food to the poor people, who didn’t have enough money to buy food. Thus, from what I’ve seen in the past four years in Ethiopia, most Muslim people are not what many white people, who are living in the United States of America think. According to CNN News, Barack Obama says, “ISIS is not Islamic, no religion condones the killing of innocents.” This even shows that our former president doesn’t believe that Muslim people are terrorists. Likewise, what Barack Obama mentioned in his speech to convey his argument is what most of us could have agreed 100% because I believe that there is no religion who accepts the killing of innocent people. In addition, according to ABC News, Abdullah of Saudi Arabia used pathos to convey his argument when he said, “Muslims are not bloodthirsty people.

Furthermore, since there is no religion who disregards the killing of many innocent people, then Muslim people are not terrorists. In addition, I believe that Muslim people are not terrorists because I have many Muslim friends who are very unlike what the media or about half of the white people are talking about. To sum up, I will use one of Muhammad Ali’s quote which is, “Terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So, people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorist.” All in all, most Muslim people are not killing innocent people. Thus, if they are not terrorists, then they shouldn’t be considered ISIS because we all know that ISIS is a coordinated group who killed many innocent
