For your next point...

What religion started the cruisades?
What religion started the great purge?
What religion started the inquisition?
What religion burned women for being witches?
What religion are most KKK members from?


Works both ways...

i wonder what your reaction would be if you saw someone with the nickname neojihadist popped up and claimed that the history of christianity was full of violence (inquisition, witchhunt, salem hunt, etcettera etcettera etcettera).

i'd rather tell them bosses in the west to stop messing around with the middle east and afghanistan instead of blaming an entire religion.

Humans are naturally violent. The problem usbt religion, as most of the atheists here say. Yes, christians kill, muslims kill, everyone does. Atheists arent pure. Joseph Stalin was the biggest murderer in the history of mankind. Yea, worse than Hitler. So no, the problem isnt religion, the problem is humanity. As long as we live, there will always* be something to fight about. Sadly, its who we are. Get used to it.

Sorry don't accept it.

CHANGE.


Prioritize peace.
Prioritize non violence.
Quit glorifying violence and promoting war.

You might be surprised what changes take place.

Are you aware that Islamic radicals murder more people every year than were killed during the whole inquisition?

www.thereligionofpeace.com...

You appear to not even be aware that Islam had conquered Christian Spain long before the crusades



The Muslim conquest of Spain began in 711 -400 years before the crusades.

Spain wasn't fully recovered from the Muslims until 1492 - long after the last crusade.

en.wikipedia.org...

It is safe to say that you are an uniformed apologist for Islamic radicalism.

I could have sworn that Western forces were invited into Saudi Arabia by the Saudi King.

Something to do with the Saudi King wanting help to stop Iraq invading the spiritual home of Islam...

Yet you use that as a justifiction for Muslim terrorism.

Wow. Just wow.

How bout we get rid of all religions?

If that were to happen, people would be F-ing in the streets.

it would be glorious.


What a world.


How many stars for this post? Really? Are there that many people who consider themselves to be no higher in the food chain than feral cats? Really?

Later the transcript has Glaspie saying:





We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction, first given to Iraq in the 1960s, that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America.





Another version of the transcript (the one published in The New York Times on 23 September 1990) has Glaspie saying:





But we have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait. I was in the American Embassy in Kuwait during the late 1960s. The instruction we had during this period was that we should express no opinion on this issue and that the issue is not associated with America. James Baker has directed our official spokesmen to emphasize this instruction. We hope you can solve this problem using any suitable methods via Klibi (Chedli Klibi, Secretary General of the Arab League) or via President Mubarak. All that we hope is that these issues are solved quickly.





When these purported transcripts were made public, Glaspie was accused of having given tacit approval for the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, which took place on August 2, 1990. It was argued that Glaspie's statements that "We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts" and that "the Kuwait issue is not associated with America" were interpreted by Saddam as giving free rein to handle his disputes with Kuwait as he saw fit. It was also argued that Saddam would not have invaded Kuwait had he been given an explicit warning that such an invasion would be met with force by the United States.[3][4] Journalist Edward Mortimer wrote in the New York Review of Books in November 1990:





It seems far more likely that Saddam Hussein went ahead with the invasion because he believed the US would not react with anything more than verbal condemnation. That was an inference he could well have drawn from his meeting with US Ambassador April Glaspie on July 25, and from statements by State Department officials in Washington at the same time publicly disavowing any US security commitments to Kuwait, but also from the success of both the Reagan and the Bush administrations in heading off attempts by the US Senate to impose sanctions on Iraq for previous breaches of international law.

Do you honestly believe this?

I know you are up on current events so I cannot fathom how you came to this conclusion, Beez


Culturally, we have. (Collective "we" for the west)
Look at the militant muslim broitherhood rise in the Middle East.
Look at the encroachment of Sharia in the west.

We have waved the white flag.

Our current POTUS bows to muslim leaders.

(see photo)



He bows because he is one of them

You probably know what kind of horror the Christians came up with during and after the reconquista? Not only did they kill or exile the muslims, they also considered the jews to be their mortal enemies because the muslims allowed jews to hold high ranking positions. The best way to describe Christian Spain in the middle ages is Hell on Earth. It's not like they created a Christian paradise where people lived in peace and freedom. It lead to Spain becoming much worse off, until they "discovered" the Americas and started stealing gold from there. But the Christians of Spain were so #ing dumb that even when they had all the gold in the world they couldn't manage it. Instead they destroyed their economy and instead of creating a thousand year old Empire it started crumbling just a century later. If they hadn't killed off most of the native Americans by war and disease they would've never held on to it as long as they did.

While life for Christians under Muslim rule was paradise on earth?

Kafirs (non Muslims) who were unable to pay their special non-Muslim tax could be enslaved.

africanhistory.about.com...

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.

The famous Ottoman Janissaries were Christian Greek, Albanian, Serb, Bosnian, Ukrainian and Southern Russian slaves bought as young boys.

It is a cultural ideology. Nothing has changed for centuries, as far as their beliefs go.

The only change is in our tolerance of such acts and beliefs.

In other words, we've chosen to cede the fight. They haven't.


This is precisely why we will fail to defeat this kind of ideology,and I mean in our own back yards,what they choose to do in their own countries is entirely up to them.
As you say we have ceded the fight,they haven't,instead of trying to understand or work with them,we need to be tougher,quite frankly we need to start by kicking them out of our countries,by force when appropriate.In the West There is no precedent for there being a tolerance of Islam,Islam is not compatible with our Western way of life,end of story.

You don't have to believe they are the minority, that's up to you, why would we regular muslims be on the news?

"breaking news: Muhammad Abdullah goes to Wal-Mart for birthday cake!!"

And no, the whole ownership of the planet thing, naaa... you know, interpretations vary..

ETA: and why do we all have to lay claim to the violence? As I recall, if every muslim killed one person a day it would take like 3 days to kill everybody... I don't want ownership of said violence.

Also, I think that the people who are out doing stuff, aren't gonna be on here to read this thread anytime soon... Soooo it's seeming to me like the point of your thread was to make a platform for people to come bash Islam, and other religions as well.
edit on 26-2-2012 by My.mind.is.mine because: (no reason given)









Maybe you has a fellow Muslim should start a thread denouncing this evil behavior , by doing the correct thing it would stop many from feeling Islam is violent.


You see it only takes a few good people to remain silent for tyranny to survive. The fact the peaceful Muslims do not take a strong stance against senseless acts of violence tends to cause people to stereotype and group individuals together.
