My post was neither an attack or defence, no need to be dismissive.
I wasn't intending to be, I apologize if it seemed that way, I responded to that post way back on another page, I hadn't even got to this page
The thing is, this thread was intended to be a discussion about the internal battles likely to take place in Western countries in response to these
events. But 90% of all responses are about how evil Islam is, or how people should expect what is happening to be happening.
We've already had that discussion, plenty of times, in plenty of threads. We all feel the same, violence is not acceptable. Most also feel that this
is just a minority of extremists - although there are some here who seem to be swallowing the BS and believe that this is ALL of Islam.
The intention of the thread was to discuss the escalation of tensions within our nations, how radical Islam will use it as a recruiting tool, and how
right wing groups will use it too.
Where will we end up if radical Islamic groups are protesting in our countries, and radical right wing groups are protesting in response?
I see a lot of similarities between this and pre-WW2 Germany. There is no doubt that millions of Muslims are being labelled, and idiot right wing
groups in our countries will not care whether someone is a radical Muslim or moderate, they won't care if they were born here or not, they will
That is the intention of this thread - to discuss how entire populations are beginning to view all Muslims as terrorists and radical protesters, and
how that will play out in our societies.
People are ignoring the intention of the post and immediately jumping in with their opinion of Islam. That is not what this is supposed to be about.
