So he makes assumptions as facts and then takes a sweeping argument and is right? You are as bad as him then I am afraid and this is the problem.
No gives a damn about actually asking the right questions, everyone is interesting in the new enemy. I don't need to belittle anyone, he did a good job of it himself but I do get a little wound up at the presumptuous attitude of people.
Just because violence or intolerant behaviour doesn't mean that every and anyone is of that same group and denomination?
As for that man's comments about Jihad, couldn't be so far from the truth - he is quoting the hardlined interpretation of Islam, by Salafi's and Wahabi's who unfortunately are taking a hold of much of the youth in the UK now. True Islam teaches the opposite, that Jihad is the battle within, fighting ones own desires, addictions and vices.
But no one wants to hear that, people don't want to believe that the majority want peace so everyone desires a new enemy.

You misunderstand me. I'm saying that we shouldn't expect people to act sensibly, we can hope of course, but there are people out there, like the man who tried to burn down a mosque, who will not act sensibly and show restraint.

This sounds like a pretty strange denial statement to release as part of the breaking news on the BBC.
According to the Quran's teachings, it came directly to Muhammad, peace be upon him, from the angel Gabriel (Ar. Jibril), who received it from Almighty God (Allah) and then he recited it to Muhammad, peace be upon him, piece by piece, sentence by sentence, revealing small and large portions of it over a period of 23 years.

I wonder if Piers Morgan will modify his views on gun control now? If that soldier had been packing his sidearm, this would be a much different story.
Arm the Brits!!!

You do realize the words in the Quran are the literal words of God do you not? There is no misinterpretation, to say as such means you are a heretic

Nonsense, the Quran has well over a 100 verses waging war on non-believers. MODS, call me for an extreme violation if you like, I'm not breaching your rules for passing on the truth.

How is attacking a mosque or 'retaliating' against Muslims going to help at all? If anything, it just makes everything worse. It's like trying to put out a fire by throwing wood on it. Morons.
Does that not also apply to "people" who hack a mans head off in retaliation for events in "their" countries??edit on 22-5-2013 by souljacker because: (no reason given)
