In the UK some of our media present Muslims in the most negative light they can. They even try to hold you responsible for almost every conflict on earth. Here , if a Muslim speaker even says something out of line it gets developed out of all proportion and makes headline news. What is worse non Muslims believe these things and build their everyday view of Muslims around these distortions. How about you give examples of activities, perhaps in your country, where Muslims have helped to make and keep the peace and developed communities. It doesn't have to be anything massive, it could just be a small centre for distribution of food, or a youth club, or a street project. Something that makes the difference. I know you shouldn't have to prove yourselves to anyone. Unfortunately the Media in the West lacks your decency and honour.
