I continue to be baffled when people in this day and age still believe that Islam is evil. I won't sit here and write about how much of a peaceful and good religion it is, though. I will not, again, apologize for other people's crimes. I will say again, that there are bad apples in every religion. However, the media loves to focus on only bad Moz-lems. Here, I will post verses of Quran and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (last messenger of God) and you can see for yourself what it's about.
