The worst part is the Western world also benefits from generating hatred. If more people are willing to support invasions and wars in the ME that means more profit for the US companies who manufacture weapons. I'm willing to bet the stock in some of those companies rose shortly after the Paris attacks. ISIS also benefits because many new extremists are created when we react in the way SkepticOverlord described.
It's like a never ending cycle of hatred. One group provokes the other, which causes them to react, and so on and so forth. They both just feed on each others hate until they eventually end up destroying each other.
so we can all talk like we can save the innocent, but its not gonna happen.. everyone needs to accept that the muslim religion is at best unstable and its about to sacrifice even more of its own people.. its sad # but you cant just run around killing people in the name of an invisible man in the sky and not have a vicious backlash..
Not all snakes are poisonous but you still don't welcome them into your home.
The amount of indiscriminate “Muslim hate” seen here on ATS and especially out in the wide-wide world, is precisely what ISIS/ISIL/Daesh is expecting.
We westerners have consistently demonstrated a level of deep stupid in response to violence from radical Islam, that results in rampant Islamaphobia, Muslim hate, bigotry and intolerance.
The problem is not Muslims, it’s the clash of ideologies of radical Islam with Western culture. And the more we react with stupidity, the more victories we hand ISIS in the battle of hearts and minds.
It’s easy to paint with broad brushes. After all, it “feels” like not all Muslims are denouncing the actions of ISIS. Well, a few decades ago, not all Christians condemned the bombing of abortion clinics. It’s the nature of narrow ideologies.
Stupid Will Not Be Tolerated
on occasion we’re going to need to filter stupid if the trend we’re seeing is not abated.
Please see the issue for what it is; a global battle to provoke youre stupidity.
Don’t paint millions of people with a broad brush of ignorance.
Don’t imply violence against those millions.
Don’t be bigots.
Don’t be stupid.
Be better than the rest of the Internet. This is ATS. We (used to) know how to be better.

Seriously? Maybe I'm reading a different Bible, but I don't see where it says for Christians who follow Christ to go out an murder people if they don't believe. The part I read says to shake the dust from your feet and move on.
In Deuteronomy, you shall be killed if you worship the wrong God. Specifically chapter 17: where God orders the killing of everyone who doesn't believe in him, or even listen to his priests.
In Samuel, God orders the killing of all Amalekites and their livestock.
There's lots of it, as I said.
To me the only real examples of Christian stupidity and hatred would be the Spanish Inquisition, Salem Witch Trials, and the slaughter of Native Americans.
