Please tell me this, and answer me seriously: Have you read both the bible and the quran? I highly doubt it.
If you were to compare them, the quran has WAY more violent issues in it.
And you say it only appeals to muslims, yes? Well, what do you think their goal is? When they outnumber us, what kind of religion will be the official religion here then? Think about it, I hope you find out sometime
According to sources, NRK has talked to Anders Behring Breivik, among other things, have demanded that Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and the government will take before he would say more for police. During the ten-hour long interrogation on Friday, the Behring Breivik have made a number of requirements. Several of the requirements have been impractical. One of the requirements should be that Stoltenberg and the government must resign. - He explains the fine and more than willing, if the conditions, said police attorney Paal Fredrik Hjort Kraby to NRK. According to VG Behring Breivik had plans concrete plans to bomb the palace and the Labour Party headquarters at Youngstorget. Police confirmed that ABB had several terrorist targets on their list. - He has stated that he was interested the second goal, but not pointed out any specific locations. But there are goals that are natural for a terrorist, says Kraby. Logistic problems have been the reason he did not perform multiple bomb attacks the day. The police are now on to identify the movements of the Behring Brevik during the attacks. In the coming week are questioning into a new phase. -Questioning goes over to the confrontational questioning. As it has been so far, he has been given a statement on its own unless we have asked too many questions, says Kraby.

Dude I live in the Black Country as racially integrated an area outside of London as you'll find in the UK.
Sometimes I wish there was a God so I could ask him "why are there racists"
With the growth of advanced industrial society during the Cold War era, critical theorists recognized that the path of capitalism and history had changed decisively, that the modes of oppression operated differently, and that the industrial working class no longer remained the determinate negation of capitalism. This led to the attempt to root the dialectic in an absolute method of negativity, as in Marcuse's One-Dimensional Man (1964) and Adorno's Negative Dialectics (1966). During this period the Institute of Social Research re-settled in Frankfurt (although many of its associates remained in the United States) with the task not merely of continuing its research but of becoming a leading force in the sociological education and democratization of West Germany. This led to a certain systematization of the Institute's entire accumulation of empirical research and theoretical analysis. During this period, Frankfurt School critical theory particularly influenced some segments of the Left wing and leftist thought, particularly the New Left. Herbert Marcuse has occasionally been described as the theorist or intellectual progenitor of the New Left. Their critique of technology, totality, teleology and (occasionally) civilization is an influence on anarcho-primitivism. Their work also heavily influenced intellectual discourse on popular culture and scholarly popular culture studies. More importantly, however, the Frankfurt School attempted to define the fate of reason in the new historical period. While Marcuse did so through analysis of structural changes in the labor process under capitalism and inherent features of the methodology of science, Horkheimer and Adorno concentrated on a re-examination of the foundation of critical theory. This effort appears in systematized form in Adorno's Negative Dialectics, which tries to redefine dialectics for an era in which "philosophy, which once seemed obsolete, lives on because the moment to realize it was missed". Negative dialectics expresses the idea of critical thought so conceived that the apparatus of domination cannot co-opt it. Its central notion, long a focal one for Horkheimer and Adorno, suggests that the original sin of thought lies in its attempt to eliminate all that is other than thought, the attempt by the subject to devour the object, the striving for identity. This reduction makes thought the accomplice of domination. Negative Dialectics rescues the "preponderance of the object", not through a naive epistemological or metaphysical realism but through a thought based on differentiation, paradox, and ruse: a "logic of disintegration". Adorno thoroughly criticizes Heidegger's fundamental ontology, which he thinks reintroduces idealistic and identity-based concepts under the guise of having overcome the philosophical tradition. Negative Dialectics comprises a monument to the end of the tradition of the individual subject as the locus of criticism. Without a revolutionary working class, the Frankfurt School had no one to rely on but the individual subject. But, as the liberal capitalist social basis of the autonomous individual receded into the past, the dialectic based on it became more and more abstract.

People, let's not make this a debate about race and ethnicity.
