You know, I read the posts by some folk here and the degree of absolutism just astounds me.

Applying the "logic" I'm seeing from some people, Ireland should be a smoking wasteland, because of the actions of the (fundamentalist catholics) of the IRA. Not only that but, apparently, all catholics are terrorists and deserved to be wiped out.

Using that same "logic" gun owners are royally screwed because the idiots who go out on spree killings mean they are all murderers.

Think about it. It must be the case because people are incapable of understanding that the actions of a minority cannot be blamed on the majority.

Its a really, really scary thought process.




It is only an issue if the placated majority supports the engaging minority. Do you and I agree on that?

I am clearly saying that the premise IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, while wholly understandable, in my opinion is not justified by the facts. The actors are not the same. My opinion is that IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, mistrust and whatever that leads to, of the followers of Islam, may be a reasonable, however hateful, response.

Totally different circumstances today than 1930's Nazi Germany. The persecution of minorities is not sanctioned by a fascist government. Very poor comparison, in my opinion.


And again, someone who didn't read the OP, because that is not the comparison that is being made

Please, go back and re-read it properly.

Give me context to your statement?

Give it any context you please. It's a ubiquitous notion. Is it okay to persecute an inactive majority IF they support an active and pernicious minority? For example, is it okay to persecute Muslims that aren't actively violent, IF they support violent extremists.

Are any of the people in here flipping out over a supposed muslim threat likely to actually be affected by such a threat? I dont think so. I bet some of the most vocal ones live continents apart and are more likely to die or suffer from local crime and car crashes but they are not as interesting a subject to shout empty nothings about.

I was due to be in Madrid's Atocha station at around 8 am on the 11-M 2004 to get the train to Coslada for a meeting, the meeting was cancelled, I was lucky. Some people I know weren't that lucky. The attacks on el Pozo and Santa Eugenia were terrible, they are tiny tiny stations.One of my students lost her father, another student's cousin was killed. It was a very specific attack on a very specific line. And unforgettable.

Now that would depend on context. If the United States declared war on the vatican, then by default the Catholics in the United States would be an enemy to the state.its implicit in their religion.

THAT one is being addressed this fall.
If it gets worse We got a nasty "PLAN B".
But YES there IS an ISSUE and the SUPER MOD has failed to address my question after dismissively minimizing my position.

You may be right.

Me, I was in Manchester in 15th June 1986 and literally had to run for my life when the IRA set off a 3,300-pound bomb in the city centre.

I was unfortunate enough to also be in Warrington on 20th March 1993 when two bombs were set off there by the IRA that killed two kids.

Oddly, I don't think all Irish people/catholics are terrorists.

You are ignorant and annoying. All will be affected by this by the time its over. Many of the most vocal have experienced and are not shouting empty drivel like you.

Thanks for, once again, giving us an example of the kind of rhetoric I discussed in my OP.
