... still 90% of terrorists are muslims.


Not even close. Let us examine the actual facts:



As Europol, the European Union’s law-enforcement agency, noted in its report released last year, the vast majority of terror attacks in Europe were perpetrated by separatist groups. For example, in 2013, there were 152 terror attacks in Europe. Only two of them were “religiously motivated,” while 84 were predicated upon ethno-nationalist or separatist beliefs.

We are talking about groups like France’s FLNC, which advocates an independent nation for the island of Corsica.

..

the percentage of terror attacks committed by Muslims is almost as miniscule as in Europe. An FBI study looking at terrorism committed on U.S. soil between 1980 and 2005 found that 94 percent of the terror attacks were committed by non-Muslims.

In fact in 2013, it was actually more likely Americans would be killed by a toddler than a terrorist. In that year, three Americans were killed in the Boston Marathon bombing. How many people did toddlers kill in 2013? Five, all by accidentally shooting a gun.

Let's get a little factual perspective here folks.

If you look at the actual historical data, it says that overwhelmingly most terrorism isn't caused by Muslims.

That's what the news says? That's it?

So you're basing your world view on a recent event and whatever news stations and websites you choose to read and listen to, and neglecting historical data?

Islamic terrorism didn't just emerge yesterday and become the "greatest threat to humanity" in two years.

So I guess you feel that your stats are somehow more accurate that that of people that are paid to collect the facts.

Yes the Islamic state has grown in the last 2 yrs and are now responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks.

that is the reality that has been presented to me and most of the population.

spin it however you want but things have changed and plans are in the works to destroy you and i.

all the people like vetrans and kkk members that were added to the terror list did not pan out to be on the same level as the Islamic state.

meanwhile we have collage kids making up stuff while chanting BLACK POWER while getting invites to the white house.

A placard beneath his feet read "I trust you, do you trust me? So hug me!"


I would have ask him if he trust his wife enough to allow her to get out without covering her head.
Meanwhile another woman tried to blow up some more people.

No one is coming to destroy you. You're more likely to be struck by lightning than be a victim of Islamic extremism. The media wants you to be afraid because politicians want you to be afraid.

Politicians need people who are scared, because scared people will vote for them and support things they normally wouldn't when using rational thought. People don't think rationally when they are scared.

How can you dispute these facts:


Why does this fearmongering seem to be so invasive? Why are so many people terrified that lurking behind every corner is some dastardly evil Muslim, hell-bent on their utter destruction?



The fearmongering works not because it resonates in people’s daily experiences and observations: it plainly does not. It works because it’s grounded in tribalistic appeals (our tribe is better than that one over there) and the Otherizing of the marginalized (those people over there are not just different but inferior): historically very potent tactics of manipulation and propaganda. Add to that all the pragmatic benefits from maintaining this Scary Muslim mythology — the power, profit and policy advancement it enables for numerous factions — and it’s not hard to see why it’s been so easily sustained despite being so patently false.

theinterept.com

Being worried and fearful all the time actually takes its toll on the body:



Chronic worrying can affect your daily life so much that it may interfere with your appetite, lifestyle habits, relationships, sleep, and job performance. Many people who worry excessively are so anxiety-ridden that they seek relief in harmful lifestyle habits such as overeating, cigarette smoking, or using alcohol and drugs.

webmd

And it isn't surprising with all the fearmongering that is going around that Americans are literally drinking themselves to death, according to the CDC:



Excessive alcohol consumption is responsible for an average of 88,000 deaths each year, including 1 in 10 deaths among working-age Americans ages 20-64.

CDC.gov

So we're literally being driven to drinking from our obsessive worry and fear, which is killing 1 in 10 of us. It sounds to me like the "terrorists" are winning without even having to lift a finger.

there is a difference in trusting wives and trusting strangers

on top of that are the spiritual implications of sex and our lack of knowledge on the subject

ok I have revised my response to your post out of respect to you but honestly I feel as though you can not be serious.

the Islamic state is real now and they want us dead.

this will grow faster than anything we have ever seen.

are your little cdc reports really saying that the Islamic state has forced the usa to drink more? no I think you just seen what you wanted to see when you posted that

First off, I agree with your thread that not all Muslims are terrorists. Now I'll hit the other side of the fence. It isn't just Muslim individuals that cause problems - countries ran by Muslim governments are notoriously strict and can treat women and gays with much disrespect, and even kill them sometimes. Their laws are not as advanced as those in the secular world.

Acts of terror by terrorists are done by desperate people. If these people had aircraft carriers, F-22's and tanks -- they'd be using them. No one wants to be a terrorist believe it or not.

These people see themselves as the "Luke Skywalkers" and "Rebel Alliance" types -- and they view America and the West as "Darth Vader" and "The Empire". This is how they think, this is what they've been taught. Our airstrikes and bombings are used to justify these teachings by their radical leaders.

There are many good religious people here that cannot be denied. It is nice to see the Muslim brethren trying to take a extra step to SHINE upon the hearts & minds of others who may be more in fear of Muslims because of the small ignorant group that makes them look bad.

I don't think the terrorists coming out of ISIS camps are pushing 50+ years old.

The radical clerics that preach selective Islam pump these guys up to make them into heroes of the people. If their village was destroyed, that get used as more evidence that America wants them dead and is evil. They're taught America is an Imperialist evil enemy. They honestly see themselves as freedom fighters on the side of good. These guys seriously think we're a bunch of Darth Vaders.

Sure, the whole Christianity vs. Islam thing goes way back. It's the old Coke vs. Pepsi thing. Two similar (Abrahamic) religions competing for control of hearts and minds. Naturally they're going to sling as much mud as they can, leveling hateful speech and slanderous lies about one another.

Islam became the single largest threat to the Roman Catholic power structure. Islam threatened to take power away from the church, something even European kings had failed at doing. I'm not going to launch into a history lesson, but suffice it to say: crusades happened. Europe got beat down, went home with its tail between its legs and had the renaissance and enlightenment, came out of the dark ages and prospered. Islamic countries rested on their laurels.

Ottoman empire fell after WWI and Europe carved up the ME without regard to ethnic, tribal, and cultural concerns. We inserted a brand new country Israel at the protest of everyone in the region, armed and supported them. Then, we played chess with the leaders of the Islamic countries.

We've supported regime changes, propped up despot dictators who repress their people. We've allowed corporate interest to direct policy (oil) and allowed only a handful of Muslims to prosper (ex: Saudi Arabia). We've fostered sectarian violence, played both sides of the arms trade and kept the entire region in turmoil since the end of WWI.

And now the entire place is in utter violent chaos we want to wring our hands and say its not our problem? And we wonder why anyone in the region might not look favorably at the West? Surprising as it is, only a small percentage do -- clearly the majority of Muslims in the ME see things more clearly than Americans do.

If only 13% of Syrian refuges have a favorable view of ISIS, and yet 40% of GOP conservatives want to make Islam illegal -- I wonder who has a more biased view of who?

So true.
But I am already watching the hate unfold in my country over muslims and islam in general.
It's sad but true!
So many people are ignorant and blind.

Believe it or not, I'm all for targeting the radical elements. Not just int he ME, but worldwide.

We can't get cops in the USA to police themselves, what makes us think we can get a religion of 1.7 billion people to suddenly turn on its head and do it? No, its going to require outside intervention.

Next, we're going to have end our meddling and allow the region to develop naturally.

Also, I think we need to get Palestine its own recognized country and make Jerusalem a UN-controlled neutral zone. Hell, put the headquarters of the UN in Jerusalem. Have the entire city patrolled by international forces from all members. If the kids can't be mature and stop fighting over it, then no one gets to have it.

Education is going to be key, 26% of Iraq is illiterate. If the people can't even read their own religious texts, it makes it much easier for them to be radicalized.
