Hi, I'm trying to get someone to proofread and edit this for me it is a rhetorical summary and cannot state my

opinion so if I can also have any feedback on the amount of sentences I have and parts that has an opinion that would be great. Thank you.

In the essay, a Murderous Martyrdom: Religion or Politics by Karen Armstrong, the Islamic world is held accountable for the terrorist attacks against the West. In a recent Gallup poll, seven per cent of the Muslims believed that the 9/11 attacks were justified and that they had no intention of committing such an act themselves. The primary understanding of the essay is stereotyping Muslims without any justifiable proof that they are the ones committing those acts of terrorism and Armstrong makes account of it in paragraph four of the essay by mentioning that ''terrorism undoubtedly threatens our global security, but we need accurate intelligence... evidence into account.'' Armstrong cites a study conducted by the American scholar Robert Pape, who overwhelmingly concluded that the suicide-terrorists attacks are likely driven by ''a clear strategic objective.''  The author establishes her viewpoint by indicating the powerful statement that Muslim's quoted from the Qu'ran, in the Qur'anic verse which states that ''the taking of a single life is equivalent of the destruction of the entire world.'' This sentence that the author present's is a powerful example of how religion has no role on the attacks that have been made and therefore demonstrates that the terrorist suicide attacks are motivated by political issues not religious reasons. The Western politicians are claiming that the Islamic world hate their way of life but the Muslims state that they admire Westerns technology, and the rule of law; as well as respect of human rights, freedom of speech etc... and that the only thing they resent about the West is the disrespect they have for Islam. Muslims want the West to respect their Islamic values. The only way to end and improve relations between both parties is to stop blaming Islam's and for the West to present Islamic values in a positive manner.
