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. t.

Originally posted by popeye0314I keep hearing the argument that muslims dont kill innocent civilians, but isn't that just a cover. Isn't true that if you are a christian or a catholic or a jew, than according to muslims you are no longe innocent, but you are now an enemy?
Originally posted by popeye0314Straight forward question- Do muslims condone the killing of christians, catholics, or jews?

i thought we were talking about Islamic terrorists not Islam
The reason many are convinced Islam is the enemy is because the Major Media Outlets concentrates its attention there. The war is supposed to be a war on terrorism, but I think the hidden agenda is to demonize the Countries that have Islam as their main religion. Most average people who work jobs and watch TV as their main source of information and current education will be trapped on what the Agenda wishes to convey to the populace. Right now, the war on terrorism agenda is earning lots of money for the people who control the major business cartels. The war is killing many innocent people who, I believe, wish to not partake in such wars. It seems hardly a war at all, because there is just killing by the 'coalition', in which dollars are being made and spent. If there was a true method of eliminating terrorism, as I believe the war on terrorism is supposed to do, there needs to be a fundamental change in the way the coalition acts upon those countries that harbour the terrorists. Also, terrorists can be anywhere, not just in the middle east, they can't just be people who follow Islam. The laws in respect to terrorism make no distinction as such who a terrorist is. Read the laws and make sure that anything you do doesn't make you look like a terrorist. How to approach the war on terrorism rather than killing the terrorist? How about providing funds and aid to those countries where the terrorists are located, things like access to education, clean and reliable infracstructures, medicine etc. Then maybe, just maybe, those countries that support terrorism and the terrorists will begin to see the United States as a good nation that wished to actually free people of their suffering. This, in my opinion, would be a positive step towards obtaining peace and the elimination of terrorism.

Is Islam really the enemy?
Vilification of a faith can condem many millions of inocents. The true enemy hides within all faiths. Evil knows only a few. But that very evil would have you condem all in the name of Faith.
In my view Islam is not the enemy for if it were we'd be facing an army of many millions. But in the end that may be the ultimate goal of islamic terrorism.
