Here's my problem. If the non extremist Muslims outnumber the terrorist extremist Muslims so much, why are the terrorists so successful? The only real answer is cowardice. Is easy to whine about people associating you with them, is easy to throw out a few choice words against extremism, but the truth is, the best weapon against these extremists would be for all these good Muslims to pull the rug out from under them. These extremists need you good Muslims for cover, they'll keep pushing til there's no choice left but to defend ourselves indiscriminately. When that happens you all are screwed. If you really want things to change, as it's your community they need for cover, and you they need to help them succeed, it's up to you to stop them. You all sit around do nothing but complain, and bitch at people for being upset about extremists, but do not a damn thing to truly end the extremists threat, when they're putting you all in danger, and you enable them. You are the best chance we have to end this, but instead of standing up and fixing this, you all complain and wait around to get caught in the crossfire. You die like lame horses waiting to die rather than dying like wolves defending their den.
End this, all you massively majority non extremist Muslims in the Muslim community have the power, more so that all the governments of the world combined.
Stop just letting them kill you along with us. Die fighting, and soon you'll all stop dying at all. Clean up your damn communities cause we can't do it for you.
If I was still a practicing Catholic and my religion was responsible for these barbaric killings, you better believe I would drop that belief like a bad habit! There's nothing to justify a particular belief if their members engage in violence and killings. Just because you don't participate in the violence, you're still considered part of that religious organization.
In 628 C.E. Prophet Muhammad (s) granted a Charter of Privileges to the monks of St. Catherine Monastery in Mt. Sinai. It consisted of several clauses covering all aspects of human rights including such topics as the protection of Christians, freedom of worship and movement, freedom to appoint their own judges and to own and maintain their property, exemption from military service, and the right to protection in war.
This is a message from Muhammad ibn Abdullah, as a covenant to those who adopt Christianity, near and far, we are with them.No compulsion is to be on them.
Neither are their judges to be removed from their jobs nor their monks from their monasteries.
No one is to destroy a house of their religion, to damage it, or to carry anything from it to the Muslims' houses.
Should anyone take any of these, he would spoil God's covenant and disobey His Prophet. Verily, they are my allies and
have my secure charter against all that they hate.
No one is to force them to travel or to oblige them to fight.
The Muslims are to fight for them.
If a female Christian is married to a Muslim, it is not to take place without her approval. She is not to be prevented from visiting her church to pray.
Their churches are to be respected. They are neither to be prevented from repairing them nor the sacredness of their covenants.
No one of the nation (Muslims) is to disobey the covenant till the Last Day (end of the world).
This charter of privileges has been honored and faithfully applied by Muslims throughout the centuries in all lands they ruled
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī (Persian: جلالالدین محمد رومی), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī (جلالالدین محمد بلخى), Mawlānā/Mevlânâ (مولانا, "our master"), Mevlevî/Mawlawī (مولوی, "my master"), and more popularly simply as Rumi (1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Rumi's influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions: Iranians, Tajiks, Turks, Greeks, Pashtuns, other Central Asian Muslims, and the Muslims of South Asia have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy for the past seven centuries. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into various formats. Rumi has been described as the "most popular poet" and the "best selling poet" in the United States.
Love is from the infinite, and will remain until eternity.
Suddenly the drunken sweetheart appeared out of my door.
She drank a cup of ruby wine and sat by my side.
Seeing and holding the lockets of her hair
My face became all eyes, and my eyes all hands.
With the Beloved's water of life, no illness remains
When your chest is free of your limiting ego,
Then you will see the ageless Beloved.
You can not see yourself without a mirror;
Look at the Beloved, He is the brightest mirror.
O Marvel! a garden amidst the flames. My heart has become capable of every form:
it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
and a temple for idols and the pilgrim's Kaa'ba,
and the tables of the Torah and the book of the Quran.
I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love's camels take,
that is my religion and my faith.
The religion of Love is different from all religions
For lovers, religion and denomination is God alone.
This list only contains the latest attacks against and within Europe. Every attack from muslim extremists against and within Europe will only lead to more commitment to end this sick extremist ideology.
