You've just picked data that fits your agenda.

I can do that too. 100% of terrorist attack on Australia since 9/11 have been by Islamic organizations.


Source?


More to the point though, am I supposed to just accept that the 24,911 terrorist attacks GLOBALLY by Islamic organizations is no threat to anyone?


That's the number of attacks since 9/11. That's 14 years of terrorist attacks or 1780 attacks a year. Oh and your site is a xenophobic Christian site that tries to paint all Muslims as evil. How about trying a source that is a little less biased?


Like i said, you spin crap however you want it, but its still crap.


Pot calling the kettle black. You are ALL spin.

In evening the playing field you would have to even the islamic way of looking at non muslims and the way it makes violence its answer. Its not just a religion - its a political set of beliefs and a legal system that is not compatible with the west's ideas on freedom. Its supporters whether actived or not are muslims because they already choose to live under islamic rules - if you don't islam have a very good remedy for you.


Not compatible with Western thinking? Don't tell that to all the Muslims I work with on a daily basis that get along just fine in the Western world.


I am sorry, I don't see how you can level the field - its not just a religion and thinking about it that way is deluding yourself its far more pernicious. Do you think that the muslims who have settled here wouldn't immediately drop our way of life were a muslim majority to be reaching in your country? I doubt it because islam is instilled into them in their formatice years.


How can you speak for an entire population? For one, how studied are you in Muslim customs and religion? There are plenty of fundamentalist religious types that get along just fine in the Western world. They constantly try to fundamentalise the West, but we don't listen. Muslims are no different. Muslims have just as much chance of instituting their version of fundamentalism as Christians have of instituting their version of fundamentalism. None. You are speaking from fear.

What do you think is the religion of the people who do this?

Let's not forget about this either.

Also Christians have a fundamentalist drug cartel under their belt.

Then there is always THIS scandal.

And finally, the biggest Christian terrorist of them all.

Just a few thoughts...
Breivik seemed more interested in religion as a means of cultural/social identity than religion as a means to theological truth.
Which brings me to my next thought: the (comparatively) recent surge in Muslim terrorists is probably similar. Before the Cold War, the European nations of the world pretty much dominated traditionally Muslim nations (Egypt, other African nations, Pakistan, sorta-Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq, Iran/Persia, etc. etc.) During the mid-1900s, the inhabitants were embarking on some real soul-searching. Nations like Egypt and Persia had once been the light of the civilized world. The Ottoman empire had been an important geopolitical player until World War One. What had happened? People needed an explanation to make sense of their world, their decline, and how they could return to greatness.
There were two main competing ideologies: Arab Nationalism and what many now call Islamofascism. Arab Nationalists were nationalistic (duh) and more humanistic, influenced largely by socialism (If I recall correctly) and intoxicated by visions of future greatness. They embraced modernity, but rejected how the West had implemented it.
The other group was largely represented by the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots, copycats, and competitors. Basically, their idea was that the Muslims were being punished for/had failed because they were forsaking their true religion (or something like that.) They fought a lot with the Arab Nationalists, but BOTH groups were trying to make sense of their world post-colonialism. Unlike the Arab Nationalists, who were saw their identity as, well, Arab Nationalists, the Islamofascists defined their identity in religious terms. (I.e. simple version: I am an Egyptian vs. I am a Muslim.)
Then Israel beat up on the Arab nations (a couple times, but I think it was the Six-Days War that really did them in.) This pretty much was the death sentence of Arab nationalism and its grand promises and left Islamofascism as the only other real *ideological* game in town. I think its explanatory power and simplistic view of the world make it easy for people to digest and follow, and it gives life meaning. Since no other ideological systems in the region are really promising to do that, radical Islamic ideology looks doubly attractive by comparison.

Agreed, stereotyping is wrong and not all Muslims are terrorist nor all Terrorist Muslims. I also know a few people that are Muslims and are outstanding individuals.


In addition, Islam is obviously under attack, Regardless if you agree that it should be or shouldn’t be under attack, it is.

With that said, I think the Muslim community must make MORE of an effort to decry some of the outrages crimes done in the name of Islam.

Not because they have to nor because they haven't in the past, but because they are being actively attacked in a very negative light and they are loosing the battle.

I think its ridiculous that the Muslim community should have to denounce and decry every action carried out by so called Muslim terrorists. However, they are under attack whether they like it or not . While their might be some efforts by the Muslim community , I personally don't see it as an affective effort in their part.

The The US Council of Muslim Organizations has a statement in their home page that clearly deplores the murder of James Foley and denounces ISIS uscmo.org... . However, the MSM clearly doesn't cover that information.

Like I said its not that the Muslim community is not decrying terrorism but they are not EFFECTIVELY fighting the apparent smear campaign against them and they are loosing the war. This should be issue 1 for them right now as it is turning the world against them. They should invest in advertising campaigns , community events, facebook, twitter, and anything that generates attention towards decrying terrorist events. Is it fair, no , but its reality.

Yeah, well that's another side of the solution I didn't mention in my post but again, it only reinforces my point. It's going to take a thousand years and a catalyst moment. On one hand, the fanatic Muslim mind is a sick and vengeful one. On the other hand, Israeli occupation and suppression of the Palestinians fans the fire. So if you go the educational route, then not only will you need to re-educate an entire culture, but you will also need to suppress Israel long enough to do that. No easy challenge. And it can not be done with democracy.

There is only one outcome I can foresee based on our historical behaviors. Another crusade is on the horizon.

Again, while you are correct that the Muslim community needs to do more and begin to change the face of Muslims in the public eye, it will do no good. It's not joe public's impression that will save the day, it's akin to throwing pearls before the swine. And here's the hard part. The "moderate" Muslim that you know, counts for only a tiny tiny fraction. Sure, the N. Americanized born and raised Muslim may do more in their community, but not the ones in Muslim countries. In fact, 90% of those "moderate" Muslims in Muslim countries still think Apostates should be killed. They're not radical but they still hold onto the belief in an outer circle of radicalized Muslims which is the same. It's futile.

So to reiterate, not ALL Muslims are radical, but almost ALL have the same opinion about what to do with Apostates. Good luck changing that.

So the point that not all terrorist are muslims has been made.

O.k. that is just one way to look at it.

Some muslims are terrorist and the rest by way of possible unwillful ignorrance of the theme of the koran they support the ability of the terrorist to operate and hide among the people that possibly do not want to support such acts but at the same time they do support such acts by defending the source of the inspiration for the acts which is ancient war time writings that are open ended. Meaning the writer of those text never shows in the text how those verses are for hundreds of yrs ago and points to them being relevant today. This is similar to the old testament in the bible but in that case we had reformation by way of the cross that is showing us that those days of violence should be behind us by following the summation of the law Jesus gave which is love.

I don't know why you think pulling these statistics somehow minimizes what's going on today with ISIL. I feel somehow you're trying to demonstrate that we're looking at the wrong group or something. As far as I know, there is only one religion, one group, and one ideology which is hell bent on forming a Caliphate, recruiting young 20 something men and women from democratic countries and encouraging them to fly to Syria to partake in global domination.

Not pedophiles in the church or lone wolf Christian nut bags. So when your title says not ALL terrorists are Muslims, it's really downplaying that ALL Islamic terrorists ARE Muslims. 100% of them

What we need to see to "level the playing field" are your examples of Christian beheadings, Christian car bombings, Christian kidnappings, stonings, mutilation, suicide bombers, then we can "level the playing field". There is no way to favorably compare Islam with Christianity or any other religion.

HERE is the eye opening truth regarding "moderate" Muslims whom are NOT radical. If even only 1% of Muslims are radical, (very conservative figure btw) then that accounts for 15 million. No small number. But when you factor in a poll on attitudes towards terrorism from a "moderate" standpoint, the figures change significantly.

No, I am trying to show that Muslims aren't the only ones doing it. Christians are just as guilty of being fundamentalists and terrorists. By the way, the only group trying to make a caliphate is ISIS. No other group is trying to do that and not all Muslims terrorists are ISIS.

Sure - I wouldn't say it if I weren't able to back it up;


Endeavour Hills stabbings (2014)[edit]
Main article: 2014 Endeavour Hills stabbings
On 23 September 2014 an 18-year-old man, Numan Haider, was shot and killed by police outside Endeavour Hills police station. Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius said Haider had been asked to come to the police station to discuss behaviour "which had been causing some concern". When the man arrived outside the station, he stabbed the two officers as they went to meet him. The two stabbed officers, one from Victoria Police and one from the Australian Federal Police, were working together as part of a joint operation on counter-terrorism between the AFP and Victoria Police.[15] Haider was found to be carrying two knives and an Islamic State flag.[16]

Sydney hostage crisis (2014)[edit]
Main article: 2014 Sydney hostage crisis
On 15 December 2014, a self-proclaimed Muslim sheikh, Man Haron Monis, took 17 people hostage inside a chocolate café in Sydney. He forced hostages to hold up a jihadist black flag against a window of the café. On the early hours of 16 December, police breached the café and fatally shot Monis following the escape of several hostages. Two hostages also died, while another four people, including a police officer, were injured in the incident.[17][18]


Those are the only two terrorist attacks since 9/11 and here is my source





That's the number of attacks since 9/11. That's 14 years of terrorist attacks or 1780 attacks a year. Oh and your site is a xenophobic Christian site that tries to paint all Muslims as evil. How about trying a source that is a little less biased?


Just because the site has a clear agenda that you disagree with, it does not make the data untrue or any less relevant. I only linked the page to the number of attacks since 9/11 because I do not necesarily agree with everything else they have to say.

1780 attacks per year is a lot from one religion. Remember that yes while they are from different organizations with different ideologies, the common thread is the spread of Islam by force.





Pot calling the kettle black. You are ALL spin.


Facts are facts and everything I presented is a fact, I've provided sources for my Australia claim now, so you can see I am no liar and how easily the data can be manipulated for a given agenda. I've provided the list of terror attacks in 2014 so readers can count the number of Islamic organisations involved for themselves. And I provided it from neutral Wikipedia, so there is no phobic agenda for you to argue against.

Islam has a global agenda and everyone has the right to know the truth based in factual evidence, which I have provided.
