It's the same you are doing in your thread you are the painting a whole religion because of the actions of a few.
McVeigh was never put under "enhanced interrogation" so we will never know if he was connected with anyone or not will we?
America (USA) is the only country in the world that tolerates people from all walks of life.
To say its the "only" country that tolerates people from all walks of life" is a bit of a stretch.
You are basically shunning every other country in the world as being "intolerant".
A shadowy Islamist insurgency called Boko Haram has haunted northern Nigeria, surviving repeated, bloody efforts to eliminate it. It appears to be branching out and collaborating with Al Qaeda’s affiliates, alarming Western officials and analysts who had previously viewed the militants as a largely isolated, if deadly, menace.
In 2009, the group seemed on the verge of extinction. In a heavy-handed assault, Nigerian soldiers shelled its headquarters and killed its leader, leaving a grisly tableau of charred ruins, with hundreds dead.
But by the summer of 2011, the group was striking the Nigerian military, the police and opponents of Islamic law in near-daily assaults and bombings, using improvised explosive devices that can be detonated remotely and bear the hallmarks of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Western officials and analysts said. Beyond the immediate devastation, the fear is that extremists bent on jihad are spreading their reach across the continent and planting roots in a major, Western-allied state that had not been seen as a hotbed of global terrorism.
No it is a fact, and i challenge you to prove that it is not,because it is.
Nigeria, a country of about a hundred and fifty million people is undoubtedly one of the most religious countries in the world. All over the country, religion plays an important role in the daily lives of her citizens; the way we interact with each other, our choice of dressing, food, and politics are mostly affected by religion. I will try to concern myself with the two most prominent brands of religion in Nigeria, Christianity and Islam.
Islam is one of the religions practiced in West Africa. Nigeria has one of the largest Muslim populations in West Africa, 50.4% of Nigeria's population.
Religious affiliation in Nigeria is strongly related to ethnicity, with rather distinct regional divisions between ethnic groups. The northern states, dominated by the Hausa and Fulani groups, are predominantly Muslim while the southern ethnic groups have a large number of Christians.
Muslim 50%, Christian 40%, indigenous beliefs 10%
your condesending behaviour is evident of your agenda to stir hatred, you acting dumb on purpose, thats clearly not what i meant.
i shall hope educated minds realise such propaganda and scrutinize these silly articles before just agree with them.
i CLEARLY suggested prove to me that the statements and alegations in that article is conforming of islamic practise and teachings, which is NOT

Because it would be the same to lump Westboro in with Christian religions. Does that make sense to you? BTW, that's a HUGE leap in logic. Actually more of a suicidal free fall than a leap.
Excuse me! Westboro Baptists church isn’t killing people, sir!
How is it a leap in logic when mullahs around the world have called for a worldwide caliphate already? They want Islam to rule the world and they aren't shy about it!
Oh come on.
What coincidental timing, just as KONY is heating up.
Oh how convenient, another excuse for the US to invade Africa.
AND they have links to Al-CIAeda??? Imagine my surprise...
How is attacking the OP logical fallacy?
An ad hominem is an attempt to negate the truth of a claim by pointing out a negative characteristic or belief of the person supporting it.
if a source is deemed poor in structure and misleading, and some one spreads that source to a forum such as ATS what does that indicate?? especially one so sensitive in nature, you have discussed a topic involving two major religions involving such allegations without careful consideration!
the only motive for this is to stir hatred, because you fail to understand the underlying teachings of islam, thus consquently failing to realise the major contradicition in the OP.
your simply acting as a proxy for misinformation and propaganda, that is what i am implying. i have provided adequate reciprocation in response to your 'proof of muslims living in nigeria' , please take a look, if you have the time of day.
