hmmm lets apply certain logic, noticed in these discussions, on christians.
Timothy McVeigh blew up a building, killed lots of civilians. He is white catholic and believes in God, he said it himself. So Christian God is
violent, McVeigh read the bible, he killed people, he said it is ok so it must be ok. Polish people are white catholics, lets carpet bomb Poland
before they kill everybody. Look how violent christians are, we should bomb Poland. What? Poland has nothing to do with it?? Of course they do, they
are christians and christians are ok with killings of inocent civilians and I claim that because McVeigh killed civilians and he was christian.
Notice the imense HUGE FLAW in this thought pattern????
Muslim is not a nation, it is religion. Look at the list in the first post, look at the number of muslims of different nationalities, states,
continents. Half of those countries are in war or disagrement ( major verbal hatred ) amongst eachother, just like non-muslim nations. They are not a
Borg-like collective trained to do one single thing, kill people.
If the goal of Islam were to kill all non-muslims, you would all be dead by now. How come all those Muslims living in America, Germany, Bosnia are not
on a killing spree? They read Koran every day, they pray, if Koran is so violent, how come they are peaceful??
I am Muslim, I read the Koran, yet I am not thinking about killing anyone, I am pharmacist, I help save lives. So far I haven't found a single verse
in Koran which allows killing of civilians, but I have found many that condemn it.
Where is the part of the Bible that justifies erradication of entire population of two continents?? I don't rememeber that being a part of message of
Jesus. Yet, the Church justified killings of Native Americans with the Bible and people followed.
I think the problem lies somewhere else, in humans. Regardless of their religion, nation, race, all humans are capable of comiting evil. Serial
killers go to church every sunday, those who killed Native Americans were "good christians", those Hindus who kill muslims in India believe in their
God, atheists commit horible crimes out of pure hatred. Notice the pattern??
People have to open their mind and accept the fact that there are those who are DIFFERENT, and different doesnt neccesarily mean wrong. It is just
that, different. Accept it and move on. Don't generalise. Condemn individuals, not entire continents. We have to control hatred, we can't eliminate
it, but we can control it and not act upon it.
