Yawn. Just like I hear couch potatos say 'our thoughts and prayers are with the victims'. But they never take any action. Face it people 'thoughts' and 'prayers' don't do sh!t in preventing anything like this,as well as protesting, etc. just like this campaign won't accomplish anything. People talk a lot but don't say (or do) anything.

That is why i refrain from citing verses out of the quran, it becomes a long unfruitful discussion about the verses and in which context they must be seen.
Fact is that jihad is the pinnacle of islam, what we see happening is jihad against the perceived enemies of islam, but also against kafirs. (kurds/shiites) and so on.
Al-Kafiroon/Kafirun (The Disbelievers)
1. Say: O disbelievers!
2. I worship not that which ye worship;
3. Nor worship ye that which I worship.
4. And I shall not worship that which ye worship.
5. Nor will ye worship that which I worship.
6. Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion.

you are guilty of following these quotes yourself. You (your country) was perceived as attacked and you justified hitting them wherever they were when you served in the armed forces. How many did you kill??? It was a time of war right?? Everything you quote was during a time of war, and if you read it all it explains exactly as such.
You know exactly what it says but your bias developed during time of war when you served only allows for you to try and spread only a hateful half truths and whole lies due to your anger and desire for revenge.
Why dont you just go do another tour and keep on fighting, thats what you want really anyways. It shows in much of your posts on Islam around here. Just go back and fight, it IS what you want and are constantly advocating for. Go, they will take you back.
Stop your apologist crap
We are talking about a religion that abuses women enmass removes people's heads for just punishment, I can go on and on.
however I make no apology for any religion nor should you.
There is nothing "peaceful" about this, no not all Muslims are extremists and I never would make that claim but some are, and a staggering amount upwards of 28% have extremists views, and a lesser amount who are jihadist.
I do hate the (extremist)ideas and the incompatibility with our culture,let me ask you a question, how many Islamic extremists are acceptable in your world?
Further don't insult my intelligence or call me an extremists, that does not further your argument just makes you look weak.
Your quote-"Yes its wrong when extremists use these doctrines to influence, just as wrong as other extremists using them to tar all of Islam or what ever religion is being attacked. "
yea, ok buddy
