I might have believe this nonsense.
Until a person reads this.
It's ok to lie to the 'non believers'.

Charlie i see what you are trying to do here . The problem is that those /us in the western world feel threatened . More so now given the last couple of days . What we need are pictures like you posted but millions of them . We need mosques turning in would be terrorists . We need lots of things . That being said , who gets more airplay , the terrorist or those Muslims that speak out about it . You dont have to convince ATS , you have to beat the MSM .

with all due respect kaylaluv, shouldn't this be happening is Islamic countries rather than in western countries?....and if Islam was such a tolerant religion to begin with, why would you need an organization to "work on" and "foster" moderation?

Its all a numbers game. With 1.6 billion when even 2% want to do terrorist activities that is 32 million. I also feel that the silent Sympathizer for these groups is a much larger percentage than those who disagree. When you start talking about those kinds of numbers it becomes a world event.
Lets put all those radicals aside, we are still talking about an a very extreme intolerant society, so there really isn't much point to all this.
Is it possible that 1.6 billion people [Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live? Impossible!

How do you know it's not happening? The religion is not the problem. People are the problem. Most people, regardless of their religious (or non-religious) affiliation, just want to go about their lives in peace. But there will always be people who want to control others. Sometimes those controlling people use religion, sometimes they don't. We can find examples of people who weren't religious at all who committed atrocities on huge populations. We can also find examples of people who use religion as their rational for committing similar atrocities.
Religion is not the problem. People are the problem. People will always be a problem. Let's imagine that all religions were to disappear tomorrow, and no one has any memory of it ever existing. Do you think there will all of a sudden be no more controlling or violence towards others? Really?

how can you say religion is not the problem when martyrdom and terrorism can be justified through their books? not to mention oppression of women and pedophilia. how can anyone defend that? makes no sense
