I think the Qu'ran says something about the religion being turned into a vehicle for violence and opression in many parts of the world. That's the sign of the End Times.

Nah, I don't think so. Btw, you can't judge every single Muslim in the world on what a couple idiots have done.

No Muslim is proud of Osama Bin Laden and his followers and they never will be, they've disgraced a complete religion.

And no where in the Quran does is say that Islam should be turned into a ''vehicle for violence and oppresion''

Sorry. Maybe over here in North America there may be only a few thousand Osama supporting Muslims. But in the rest of the world there are many many people who support terrorism. I'd be willing to bet at LEAST 40% of Muslims worldwide support the global Jihad. The real number is probably higher.

My parents are muslims, my cousins are muslims, most of my family is muslim, but I just can't really call myself a muslim. I tried picking up some books advocating Islam and I just couldn't get a feel for it, and besides I love bacon and beer.

40%, you're crazy. The number is closer to 4% then 40%. Trust me when i say this, people don't support wars anywhere, ever. Osama's own family have disowned him.

Many Many Middle Eastern countries don't like America (I'm not from the Middle East if thats what you're thinking), but it's not like they because they don't like America they support Bin Laden.

I don't think you know as much about it as you think you do.

You have to understand that America is hated on by loads of people for very legit reasons; furthermore, most of the people who support Osama either want revenge on the US for how it has caused them to suffer personally (ie the Iraqis and Afghanis) or they hate what America represents to them: tyrannical power, greed, malice, and ignorance.

Yeah, I'm muslim.

Some things Ive heard about the end:
-Population of women will be much higher than men
-Anti-Christ will come
-Da'jall will come from North-East Asia (Russia?)
-Islam will not be followed the way it was introduced; people will abuse the faith for personal gain
-Dictator/Tyrant will rule much of the world
-Jews (Israel) will be a major worldpower

I don't know how many of those are from the quran or not, just stuff I recall.

i heard the dajjal will appear from the ground between Syria and Iraq. He has one eye, he's short and claims to be God. Jews will follow him. then Prophet Isa(Jesus) will come back and kill Dajjal.

I'm Muslim,and I have no clue what's going to happen towards the end of the world except the info written earlier. I decided that I'm going to live my life according to the Quran, and whatever happens will happen.
