religion is simply a tool constructed by the collective consciousness to control large populations for the benefit of all citizens. Science is the only real truth.

Huns

American white settlers terrrorized the red man.
White men terrorized and enslaved the black man.
Irish Protestants
Irish Catholics
Hutus

George Bushmen

Every single one of those earning the label of terrorist. And your skin colour or religion will fall within one of those, which by the implication of your question, makes you a terrorist.

So then, why is your kind a terrorist?

Thank you for your unsubstantiated claim. Does this mean I can plaster the board with my opinions too?

SomewhereinBetween, not that I agree with any of the things you have listed, but you have to put them in the context of time. Today, almost all terrorists are Islamic. You see, the majority of "white men" have grown up and advanced in the last thousands years, whereas... mmm, well, you get the idea - I don't want to get labelled a racist, because I am white and taking an objective view.

Why is it that the majority "Black people" and other ethnic groups still live in the past and always want to get "one up" on the "white man"? Look at Africa now. They are killing inocent white Africans for no other reason than their skin colour. Of course no one cares about that, we "white men" have to carry the guilt of our ancestors. Now these so-called abused ethnic groups think they can treat "white men" how they want, and the PC agree with it


Oh well, just thought I get that of my chest seen as everyone else is

No.

The 10 commandments - Exodus 20:13 "You shall not murder"

Love your enemies - Matthew 4:43 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you..." and follows is the reason why.

The Greatest Commandments - Matthew 22:34 "Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: "Teacher, which is the greated commandment in the Law?"
Jesus replied, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your sould and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. The second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself'. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Love - I Corinthians 13:4 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perserveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophesies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophey in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears."

I Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Martyrdom as I understand it is dying for your beliefs...which is not to say killing yourself for your beliefs in my perspective. If someone told me to denouce God or die, I would rather death. I guess martyrdom still exists for me.

I think it is blatantly obvious that NoobCommando has an agenda here. I hope that I'm not the only one here who is offended by the racist remarks that are spewed in his post. I know that some of the Mods have been tracking several new members who were sent here to recruit for the Neo Nazi party. I hope for your sake, NoobCommando, that you are not involved in that group, and that you are just a mis-informed "white boy" who has no idea what your talking about.

To any mods who are patrolling this thread, I hope I'm not out of line for asking you to keep an eye on NoobCommando's future posts.

Misinformed "white boy" - isn't that racist, along with "white men", etc that has been repeated in this thread? No, I am not part of any political group or otherwise, on the contrary, these are my "informed" opinions.

If I am to be warned, I believe that those using racist terms as stated above and more against caucasians should also be warned.

BTW: I have no agenda, just providing a more balanced view to the racist slander coming from other ethnic groups in this thread

well I am a non demonimational Chaplain/scholar and my first question is simple what exactly are these other muslims saying about the faith and holy scriptures, lay out a method or code of combat which in hostages and beheading and other attrosities are in some cases justified.


I know for a fact that there are those who say that they are muslim yet do not interprit the texts that way and I cant seem through my studies of the same text find what they are talking about when they use the texts as justification for those horrific crimes against their fellow man.



My second is the conversion issue seems one sided, it is being put forth by many that coversion to the muslim faith is okay , but coversion away can end up costing the prospective convert and their guides to conversion their lives litterally and spiritually.

Not all that is claimed to be science IS science, either, so that leave that supposed solid rock in question as well, lol....and when has science not been used to contorl the population? Science is often done by popular concensis (Ref: look at the definition for laws now in biology books.) Specific beliefs held by some scientists, in relation to ONLY science, with the specific purpose of not relating to God in any manner, since he cannot be a part of science, by some definitions, have committed some of the greatest atrocities ever seen in men. When dealing with humanity and allowing humanity control over some process, someone WILL foul it up with their own bigotries and predispostions. That's normal human behavior. It matters not whether it's a religion or whether it's a family feud started over who makes the best hamburger. It is all foolish wastes of time, and that includes much of the so called science out there.

And I'm not suprised that such a high percentage of killers are white in America. The majority of America is STILL white. Also, true serial killers tend to kill all over the place, and nt often that close to home, and with how small many European countries are, do the often share murder data? For every single Serial killer that's out there, there are a supposeed 10 that will never be caught. (True Serial Killers are no thtose that kill multiple times, but those that kill for a sexually related dominance...and no woman has fit that lable yet...though there have been women that do kill mulitple times. The one woman who came close to that behavior killed not out of dominance but a confusion of defense for EVERY SINGLE SEXUAL ACT SHE COMMITTED, lol...) Also, you can't get statistics from countries where they don't release the full information to you. And one more thing that all studied serial killers have in common, ALL KNOWN CASES OF SERIAL KILLERS started with pornography. All guys get tired of pornograpy highs and move on to more hands on stuff....just serial killers take it too far.

Now, seriously, these things have nothing really to do with the subject at hand.



Now, a real question: What's the hardest part about sharing your faith for you personally? how does that conflict with the views of your own branch of mussslim beliefs?

So then, why is your kind a terrorist?

This is kind of unfair. Most Americans don't have the Terrorist of the world comming up to them. And most Musslim Terrorist cells try to imply that they are THE voice for all musslims, when they are not.

One who utilizes the systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve political objectives, while disguised as a civilian non-combatant. The use of a civilian disguise while on operations exempts the perpetrator from protection under the Geneva Conventions, and consequently if captured they are liable for prosecution as common criminals.
here
Most of your list is more akin to Genocide. Israel was not know for hiding it's actions form others. IT was done as the WHOLE population. Spanish Inquistion was a religous genocide (should that be religocide?). Huns, Israel, and Germany under hitler came in and conquored, they wre not dressed as civilians (IF there was a military standard, they wore it proudly, and they came as an ARMY)....Terrorists tend to be the same as anything labled a resistance fighter..... and it's not just the whites in this country that beleieve that there ar emore Musslim terrorists than anywhere else. Some whole religions (mostly VERY small) are nothing but terrorists. But out of the major rleigions, while there are still atrocities int he others, are not as terrorist related as most the middle eastern Musslims...but they are still just FACTIONS, not the whole group. The ONLY other prominant group that falls under that headign are the fights between the Catholic Irish and the Protestant Irish...and almost all ACUTAL terrorist problems with them are on ONLY the British Isles, not halfway across the globe. (Though the Irish factions DO get ther funding from prominant Irish families here in the states.) Hell, I need to see a list of African Terrorists and which ones are related to Musslim beliefs and which ones are not. Now, as to non religious ones? dunno. Most terrorists DO use religion as an excuse....often why it's a rebellion when it's terrorist acts in one country alone, and little religion goes into it.
and get this striaght. Israelites were NOT white....some, NOW, are white, and some are black....because they married into other races. They THEN were quite arab in apearance, in fact are honestly of the same stock as most arab families...and should be considered another Arab family line up until the last dispersal of the Jewish people. Just like some Musslims, EVEN the TERRORISTS, are white. Bigotry of that sort can make you lose perspective (whether intentional or not).

Out of all the killers, 86% are heterosexual

Look into the case of Ted Bundy, he was caught quite by accident. Because ofhim, researchers are quite aware that they haven't found that many of them. Also, not even in America are the data on rapes, murders, and other violent acts are not shared much further up than the individual stations.

Smokinjoe


Why are the majority of serial killers white males? I assume you are a white male, so you must know the minds of the white males who feel the need to repeatedly murder innocent people for thier own sick gratification.

That was a bit unfair of me to ask huh? Well, why do you assume that a muslim like tomcat ha knows the mind of a terrorist? Being a muslim does not make you an expert on terrorist psyche, just like being a white male doesn't make you an expert on the mind of a serial killer.

Please provide evidence from a reputable source. For all we know, the person who designed that site may have something against Caucasians, as I have found the general opinion from Black men for some reason (well, in the NorthEast of England).


Sure thing buddy




Profiles are based on past killer statistics, who the victims were and/or descriptions extrapolated from crime scene observations, such as how neat it was, whether the body was disposed of and whether it seemed the killer was in a hurry.

"The process of profiling is basically some deductive reasoning based on what you find at a crime scene," Fox said. "It's not of a specificity that will allow you to put out an all-points bulletin."

If the victims were predominantly white, authorities assume the killer is too, since most homicides are same-race. About 70 percent of all serial killers are white and 95 percent are males. This method was used in both cases.

This is from a report on Fox News.



But, I think I've proved my point enough (well, overkill comes to mind

One last post in regards to mpeake... I would just like to point out that the books are based on the same statistics as the website you have provided, but my point is that most crimes committed by people of other ethnic groups are hardly ever reported due to politically correctness. Also, the reason America may come top for "white serial killers" is because the country is predominantly caucasian, so logic dictates that you should expect a higher percentage of crimes to be committed by "whites" on "whites" (it also shows that America is not a racist nation, in general). Now, lets make it more fairer and look at the stats for "black serial killers", say for Africa. Predominantly "black" nation, just the majority of crimes are not reported. You'll also find a lot of crimes against "white" people in that nation (simply do a search in google). It is a racist nation, but for some reason, "black" people seem to think they are still being targetted.

mpeake, would you mind if we set up a new thread about this, dedicated to this? It will allow me to go more indepth. If at anytime you think I am truly out of line, or that I am incorrect, then you can say so, but backing up your claim to. We can look at stats for racist crimes too for many different countries, and see for sure who is really being mistreated in the PC world we live in today.

EDIT: I was looking up a few of those books you recommended, and out of the ten I have reviewed, not one of them looks at Worldwide stats, they concentrate mainly on serial killers within the Western world (mainly America I must add).

Firstly, that doesnt prove that whites are more likely to be serial killers (specifically in US terms) as those percentages look pretty much in line with their respective population percentages (without even getting into the whole area of the FBI including hispanics in the "white" category when looking at offenders whilst mysteriously taking them out of the "white" category when looking at victims).

Secondly, the stereotype of whites being more likely to be serial killers is resulting in serious lapses of judgement in law enforcement allowing non white serial killers more of a free reign to carry out their deed (refer recent Louisiana and sniper killings)

Thirdly, unfortunately, in large parts of Africa, and to a lesser degree Asia, there is such a lack of state governance, resources and ability to collate relevant and reliable data that it is impossible to assess, with even remotely the same degree of accuracy available in the US, how many serial killers are roaming these continents.

Lastly, dont even go into the overall murder stats in America.

Noobcommando- not that I agree with any of the things you have listed, but you have to put them in the context of time. Today, almost all terrorists are Islamic. You see, the majority of "white men" have grown up and advanced in the last thousands years, whereas... mmm, well, you get the idea - I don't want to get labelled a racist, because I am white and taking an objective view.
No, I do not need to put it in the context of time, because the white man has not grown up at all. There have always been terrorists from the enemies point of view, and the white man to this day is exemplified by not only within the last 100years from Hitler’s machinations to those of the white owned diamond conglomerates behind the massacres in Cote D’ivoire, the latter also answering your rather stereotypical question on black men, but with his actions throughout the world today. A terrorist is not just someone willing to blow up another by strapping a bomb to his waist, a terrorist is one who terrorizes and kills innocents to advance his own cause. And the bombs of the white man do just that. There is no humane bomb, every last one of those unleashed is a barbaric act against humankind, and hiding behind the laws of yoru land does not change that fact. The IRA were white Christians blowing up white Christians all over the UK, and they were known as terrorists, how far advanced is the white man then?


JCL163- This is kind of unfair. Most Americans don't have the Terrorist of the world comming up to them. And most Musslim Terrorist cells try to imply that they are THE voice for all musslims, when they are not.
It is unfair only from your point of view. You, I suppose, speak for all Americans, where Americans do indeed imply that they are the voice of Christians and the world, this is no different to your charge against muslems. But you actually get the point of my post in answer to the insulting and vapid question posed by smokinjoe. You take offense to same but took none whatsoever to smokinjoe’s broad brush attack at the poster of this thread, why? There are two sides to every coin here, and while you may see yourself as just and right and defending that which you kill for, so does your enemy see themselves in this way. No matter their race, creed or religion, they see their eneny, you, as a terrorist.
