One thing it gets me on this thread is the people that are arguing against the poster. They are arguing themselves into a corner.
They imply that if you criticize jihad, that you are criticizing all islam.
They imply that if you say the people engaged in jihad are savages, that you are saying all muslims are savages.
By supporting that argument, you are the one that is implying all Muslims support the jihad currently going on.
The term “jihad” has an explicit meaning. To criticize jihad, and say those supporting jihad are savages, is referring strictly to a subset of
muslims that are actively supporting the violent activities. It is based on the working concept that the jihad movement is just an extremists movement
comprised of a limited number of people.
That jihad movement is certifiably savage and violent. To call the people that support that movement “savages” is just being self evident. To the
point that it is redundant to call a jihad supporter “violent, and savage”
When you people try to imply that someone is criticizing all islam because they criticize jihad, is implying that the two are inseparable. It implies
that all musilms are inseparably tied to, and support a violent and savage movement. YOU are the ones implying that. No one else!
You try to make any criticism of jihad off limits by saying that you are attacking islam as a whole.
The ones that refuse to draw a distinction between jihad and islam is the ones that make large scale war inevitable. They are the ones that make it
impossible to address the jihad problem because they try to put it off limits by saying that you are attacking Islam if you talk about, and denounce,
jihad. When you can’t address the problem, then it will only grow until there is only one answer left. WAR!!!!
The ones that will be on the losing end will be the muslims. So, by supporting the argument that if "you insult jihad, you insult muslims". YOU are
inseparably tying islam to jihad in the eyes of the public. YOU are the one making the slaughter inevitable. And the people that will be slaughtered
are the ones you are defending.
