When you criticise a gay you are a bigot homophobic or intolerance
When you criticise a woman it is sexism or anti-feminism
When you criticize a country,they call it Treason
When you criticize a religious sect, they call it Hate
When you criticise a muslim you are exercising freedom of speech?

It seems that there is an open season on Muslims and anti-Muslim propaganda and acceptance of Muslim bashing in the USA, UK, Israel. This is exactly how hitler operated, he scapegoated a group of people which led to the holocaust which is EXACTLY what is happening right now.

Go to any of the major news websites and look at their comments (eg CNN, MSNBC, daily mail, telegraph.co, fox news), calling people ragheads or towel heads is a form of freedom of speech yet you do anything else listed you are quickly labeled.

Do you think there would be a lot more outrage if there was any other ethnicity on this effigy in NYC?:

Roshonara Choudhry, a student from East London, was convicted of attempting to murder the MP Stephen Timms after being inspired by extremist sermons she had watched on the Internet.

MI5


Altogether, 230 Muslims were jailed in the first decade of the 21st century for terrorism offences in the UK.

Daily Mail

Clearly most British Muslims do not support terrorism. Nonetheless, a significant number have been jailed for terrorism, while 1 in 5 have sympathy for the London Underground bombers who killed 52 people and injured 700 in 2005.

It is important to remember that most Muslims just want a quiet life just like you or I.

I think the vast majority of people realise that.

On the other hand, how can we stop a minority of radical Western Muslims fighting for al-Qaeda which causes a small minority of people to wrongly tar all Muslims with the same brush?

British Muslims recruited to fight for 'al-Qaeda' in Somalia


Dozens of radicalised British Muslims are being trained by militant Islamists to fight in a “holy war” in Somalia, it can be revealed.

Intelligence experts believe the British volunteers form the core of an international force of foreign fighters drawn from the United States, Canada, Europe and East Africa.

The Telegraph


How can we engage young Muslims who may be tempted to fight a holy war in the name of Islam?

How can we effectively integrate them into Western society rather than allow them to turn into Jihadists?

How can we stop a small but dangerous minority of Western Muslims from wanting to commit terrorist acts in the name of Islam?

You might be interested in this NYPD Report into radical Muslims in NY.


Jihadist or jihadi-Salafi ideology is the driver that motivates young men and women, born or living in the West, to carry out “autonomous jihad” via acts of terrorism against their host countries.

NYPD


Salafi is just another word for Wahhabi.

Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia has spent over $87 billion building Wahhabi mosques in the USA (as of 2001).

Almost all Muslim terrorists are Wahhabi but only a minority of Muslims are Wahhabi. Note however that Wahhabi is the official Islam in Saudi Arabia.



Of the more than 1,200 mosques in America, more than 80-percent were built with Saudi money, according to author Reza F. Safa. In fact, Safa writes that the Saudis have spent “$87 billion since 1973 to spread Islam throughout the United States and the Western hemisphere.”

Elsewhere in the world, it is believed that Saudi Arabia finances some 85-percent of the world’s mosques, where the vitriolic and violent Wahabbist interpretation of Islam is taught.

Well, I'll make this extremely short and to the point so I won't waste your time or mine.

1st, you need to actually believe there is a so-called muslim problem. ,,,,,,,,,I don't.

next, if there is a muslim problem,,,,,,,,I would believe it has been manufactured by our cia and moooooooosad by undercovers that went in and created the so-called muslim problem the same way they created false flags throughout history.

Hope that explains my thoughts on the phoney muslim problem.

Yet most people killed by Muslim radicals are not Westerners, but rather other Muslims.

You are argubaly doing the vast majority of Muslims, who are moderate, a grave dis-service by maintaining that Muslim extremists don't exist.

They do. The ground is crawling with them in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and Nigeria.

No you are mistaken.

Actually, the Muslims were bigger African slavers than the Christians.


(1) Scholars estimate that about 12,000,000 Africans were sold by Africans to Europeans… …and 17,000,000 were sold to Arabs.

www.scaruffi.com...



(2) The Muslim Barbary Corsairs, (North Coast of Africa) between the 16th & 19th centuries, enslaved between 1 million to 1.25 million Europeans by seizing them from as far away as Ireland & Iceland.

Women were greatly preferred. Men were often castrated.

en.wikipedia.org...



(3) The Ottomans also enslaved large numbers of Europeans either directly through their imperial colonial wars of conquest or as required tribute from already conquered European territories.

For instance, the famous Ottoman Janissaries were Christian Greek, Albanian, Serb, Bosnian, Ukrainian and Southern Russian slaves taken as young boys.

en.wikipedia.org...



(4) In Islamic countries, Dhimmis (non Muslims) who were unable to pay their Non-Muslim tax could be enslaved

africanhistory.about.com...



(5) At the borders of the Islamic Empire vast number of new slaves were castrated ready for sale (Islamic law did not allow mutilation of slaves, so it was done before they crossed the border).

africanhistory.about.com...



(6) Slavery was abolished in most Islamic countries, although it persisted in Saudi Arabia into the 1960's. Slavery was finally was made illegal in the Arabian Peninsula in 1962."

Slavery continues to this day in two, now Islamic, countries colonised by Islamic Arabs – Mauritania and Sudan (with an estimated 600,000 and 200,000 slaves respectively).

As recently, as 1950, it is thought that 20% (450,000) of Saudi Arabia’s population was slaves. Slavery still continues in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf to this day.

Actually it is bigotry because 9.11 was committed by people who so happend to be muslim, there are 1.2 billion muslims in the world. The holocaust happend by people who so happend to be Germans, should we go around killing germans? Some people in my city were killed by people who so happened to be black, should we go killing blacks? The bombings taking place in afghanistan are being done by people who so happend to be white, should we go killing white people?

Yes it is 911% bigotry. Also a little fact that you may have missed that I might need to use crayons is to show you that all the perps of 9.11 were men. Should we declare war on men?

Why dont you post a picture of a black man being lynched in the middle of NYC and lets see the response, after all a lot of black people did kill, so its acceptable according to your logic.

No...:
1) The holocaust WAS PERPETRATED by MANY people who WERE DEFINITELY German.

2) We DID go around killing Germans. Lots of them...

and...
3) Yeah... just so ya know... I feel it was the proper thing to have done.

"Some people in my city were killed by people who so happened to be black, should we go killing blacks?":
I reckon not... especially not if they were killing white people...: What color were those that were killed?

"The bombings taking place in afghanistan are being done by people who so happend to be white, should we go killing white people?":
Well, the first part sounds a bit racist to me... to second part: I reckon so... many seem to think so...

"Should we declare war on men?":
That depends, are they white Christian Americans?

"after all a lot of black people did kill,":
Racist comment again... ???

Freedom of Speech - An excuse to be Openly an Anti-Muslim


The more I think about how this OP has taken something positive, liberty to speak, and twisted it like some ugly pretzel into a negative...

You can't legislate or write laws to make people think certain things. And for that truth, I am forever grateful. people will like and dislike in spite of what you or anyone else thinks. If someone doesn't like a certain religion or country, it won't be affected by laws that choke their ability to speak.

It will only strengthen their views and resolve.

you've been actively participating in a thread about freedom of speech - pro and con - do you really have to ask?

:-)

does the anti-American rhetoric hurt your feelings?

does it scare you?

what should we do about it do you think?

"you've been actively participating in a thread about freedom of speech - pro and con - do you really have to ask?":
Yes, it's an especially fitting question to ask in a topic concerning "FREEDOM of SPEECH". What do you not understand about that term?

"does the anti-American rhetoric hurt your feelings?":
Not at all, though my right to respond to such "rhetoric" DOES seem to hurt yours.

"does it scare you?"
Nope. Not when I can respond back.

"what should we do about it do you think?"
Nothing, of course! I enjoy making them look like fools. It's all good!

I'm Turkish and I don't like muslims very much, if not hate them. Most of you already know but I want to warn you guys, don't fall for their traps whatever they may say. They might talk about respect, peace, democracy etc but the cold hard truth is far from it.

According to a muslim, Quran is above all the other wordly way of thinking, be it conscience, ethics, tolerance, respect, democracy, etc. They can easily perform any monstrous act on grounds of Quran's statements. Just as they burnt alive my people some 18 years ago in Turkey (www.youtube.com...). Thousands of nuts were shouting 'allahu akbar' while burning down the hotel with people inside it, thinking that they were infidels. It lasted for hours and everyone including government, military, and police watched it, just as I had to watch it live on tv as a child wthout being able to do anything to stop it


I'm not talking about middle ages, I'm talking about Turkey, 1993. 35 people whoose only fault was performing music on a social gathering. Burnt alive.

Secondly, muslims can easily lie about anything including their most sacred things. For example, when they are criticized for terror they'll claim that islam means peace. Actually, Islam means 'to surrender' and they dream about the day when the whole world will 'surrender' to islam. It has nothing to do with peace unless they are weak.

You guys will probably LOL but you can't be a muslim without explicitly lying in the first place. So, if you can't lie, you are not accepted. Why? Because the very first rule of islam is to speak the words that you witnessed Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. Anyone with a right mind knows what the word 'witness' means. Well, i didn't witness anything sorry.

I view this religion as an uncurable mental disease which takes away all your humane values and replaces them with Quran's statements. It is uncurable because you can't reason with them on any grounds since Quran is supposedly superior to any kind of wordly reasoning. So when faced a dilemma, a muslim has to choose Quran over ethics, conscience, tolerance, democracy, etc.

I have to live with them but you guys are lucky that you can live without them. But i'm still against violence against muslims. Better to leave them alone, chances are they'll start to kill each other for minor differences when they run out of 'infidel' victims.

Muslims, please don't argue or quote I won't answer. I spent lots and lots of time arguing about it with no avail. I'm living in a muslim country and i know you inside and out.

Problem is when someone of Islam wants to leave, what happens to them?

example: Several children who wanted to act Westernized in Ontario were "honor" killed by their father.

Iran has stated it may take "first strike" against its enemies....wonder how many cells they have around the world, ready to strike.

If we were all for studying instead of "playing sheep" and following the leader we would be smarter. To be racist is to hate the Human Family, so therefore those of you who are sorry for you. That means you hate your family, your woman's, and your friends. Yes you can blame the media they are the ones keeping you saying what they are. The other is PEOPLE ARE NOT CRAYON COLORS. That is why every nation has a flag. One day REAL SOON you are all going to find out why they keep you thinking certain groups hate this country. The truth is they dont hate the country, they hate the CORPORATION!!!! But some of you dont know what side your on, which way to fly your flag, and what the form of government that this country should be. Here's a hint ask a child to recite the Star-Spangled Banner (what the Flag is TRULY CALLED). WAKE UP stop being sheeple. Ask yourself this question "Have I really learned anything or have I just been brainwashed and brainrinsed.
