I'm sry but probably because 9/11...some ppl are ignorant and blame one religion or ethnicity on all ppl because of one act of hatred from them. I'm proud to say I'm NOT ONE OF THOSE PPL!! everybody is equal to me regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity :-)

Green I agree! Just what I was going to say. My dad says that about Muslims and it makes me so mad! I kinda think 9/11 was conspiracy anyway.

Religious prejudice! If you don't conform to their belief system they automatically think you're a bad person.

There are enough bigots in the world that everybody is hated by somebody. If you live in a community where Muslims are a minority, then you may be more acutely aware of it.

They do not hate you. They are repeating a message that their parents taught them. If children could tune out information while they are young we stop all wars between the tribes. 2000 years of bigotry is in inbedded in families.

because many people are ignorant and prejudiced. your religous beliefs get a bad rap because of the " terrorist attacks "..they don't understand the thoughts of the few aren't the ideals of the many

look i am a Muslim too and that used to happen to me as well people are just not used to being surrounded by people who are not in their own religion and people like us are just not normal therefore they just tease you not hate you. Keep that in mind.

I doubt anyone hates you because of your religion. But, then, what most people do not realize is that Islam is not just a "religion". It is a political and legal system based on a religion. In that political and legal system, it is required for all Muslims to fight in Jihad until all infidels are either defeated or dominated. That is according to all four schools of Islamic jurisprudence. I realize that most Muslims do not follow that practice. However since there has been virtually no Muslims speaking out against the practice, it is assumed that those who do not practice it, support it. So, if you are not speaking against what Islam has been doing, it is doubtful that many outside of Islam will trust you.

Muslim do the jihad only when they are attacked and never but that. I may be the belief of some extremist sects, but most of them never attack anyone. Even the so-called infidels, heathens, etc.In his book, Allah, the same God who sent Jesus and Moses, no matter what we call Him, say, "He who kills somebody, it's as if they had killed all the people".

Children have a judgment process still in formation. It is fairly black and white through the teen years, and does not develop much nuance until later. So, they are critical of anything different in much the same way that they do not like anything unusual in their food. The solution is for you to be the nicest Muslim they know. Everyone likes sweet things!

There are FAR more peaceful and God fearing muslims in this world than the terrorist, extremist Muslim. It is also, your burden, to help rid the world of the latter!! Millions upon millions of humans have died from wars in the name of Religions!! It is time for All of us to demand a STOP to this phenomenon!!!!

This phenomena is not limited to your situation. I know this doesn't directly answer your question, but I hope it helps you realize that you are not alone in your feelings. God bless.

Because they are ignorant cretins of intolerance. Those who will hate any person for something other than their heinous deeds of injustice, oppression, or bringing about physical suffering with direct action are not looking at what really matters. Let no man who has not hurt you come to pain for those who would hurt those who have not hurt you simply look at you as next. Hurt not those who would not hurt you for allies are more scarce than enemies.
