I'm highlighting this for all of those "why don't they condemn it?" posters out there who cannot tell the difference between the actions of a minority and the actions of the majority.

I've seen - and as staff had to react to - an awful lot of racism/religious intolerance on here recently.

Lots of people post "why don't they apologise for..." or "why don't they condemn..." or "why don't they seek out...." - well here's the deal - do any of us apologise for every murder? Every atrocity that someone commits? The answer is no, we don't - and when it boils down to it irregardless of faith these are just people who usually go about their everyday lives and are as appalled by the actions of extremists as the rest of us are.

Its good that 5,000 Muslims have gathered to condemn the murder of soldier Lee Rigby

Didn't twice that number gather to protest against Google?

10,000 Muslims rally outside Google's London HQ over US-made anti-Islam film: report

Anyone with any sense knows not to blame the majority, however it doesn't help when the BBC interview people like Anjem Choudary, who openly support these actions, straight after the incident occurs.

Petrol > fire.

Nice to see the Muslim community trying to show people they are not to blame though.

And what has that got to do with the article I posted?

Nothing.

At all.

But hey, thanks for trying to obfuscate the issue.

This is just one of many gatherings of its kind, and there has been a huge amount of condemnation of the attack from the muslim community. You just choose to ignore it because it doesn't stack up with your view of the world.

I've seen it here before Nef. Muslim's decry atrocities and some say, "It isn't enough." Logic can not fly in the face of bigotry. Not for those that hate in any case.

You either hate all muslims, or fear all muslims. Either way, you need to grow up and stop catagorizing entire populations together with the acts of a few bad men.

No. Many do not protest individual murders, though some do in their home towns.

But eyebrows are raised when murders are committed in the name of (fill in the blank).

That catches people’s attention.

Racist? Not at all. Maybe a Phobia? Nope, not that either. (Though both could be in some)

People getting sick and tired of stupid crap done in the name of race, religion and ideology?

Ding! Ding! Ding!

I'm glad that there are many gatherings of its kind.

Apology may be a good act, but that's not how things work.
As long as it takes one murder to bring the nation on the verge of internal war, there will never be peace.
All the muslim extremists would need now is one murder in every say 6 months, and the country will always be in turmoils.
I fear this is just the begining of destabilizing the UK, their agenda is clear to me.
UK .gov moves...

It's a sorry state of affairs when people feel the need to publicly condemn something such as murder. What does that say of society?

A lot more than the obvious.

But why does Islam produce so many bad men?

After all, we don't hear about Hindus chopping peoples' heads off in the street or Buddhists blowing spectators up at a race?

Is it perhaps because the aggressive fundamentalist Wahhabi school of Islam is being spread by Saudi Arabia money across the West?

Almost all (if not all) Muslim terrorists are Wahhabi or Salafi. Perhaps 80% of all mosques built in the last decade in the West have been financed by Saudi Wahhabi money.

Perhaps the miracle is that there hasn't been more terrorist attacks.

The question I have is……. How many are marching out of sincerity, and how many are doing it purely for optics/propaganda?

To divide the emotions, and loyalty of the enemy, so they will be unable to form a coherent response in the face of an ongoing onslaught.

When the religion can condone sending their own children to fight against tanks so they can get the image of their enemy killing children on TV. When they can do that, then I no longer have faith in their conviction, no mater what they say.

You can post all the articles of them protesting (fill in the next atrocity) but when I no longer trust them, and their sincerity, at the most basic level, then it’s all just propaganda to me.

Its not an apology. Its a condemnation.

Why should they apologise for something they didn't do?

Do you apologise to people every time a Reaper or Predator takes out a family? I doubt it.

The next time a muslim is your country commits a murder,(not an act of terror, just a murder) it will be all over the news. Thats all you will hear about from the gov. But the next white guy to kill someone will only make local news. You can bet on that. So that leaves a question to be asked. Who really has an agenda?

As somebody else asked on Question Time BBC1 the other day..

Why are the Muslim community expected to come forward and apologise that a Muslim committed a murder?

When that nut case in New Zealand went all mental - The White race didn't step forward to apologise for the fact he was white.

Until we deal with radical Muslims, we as a society must live with Islamic terrorism.

Moderate Muslims condemning the chopping of a soldiers head off is something to be praised.

Unfortunately, we still have the radicals in our midst's.

I hope this is on topic......seems to be as it involves Muslims, and a response to the posters question.

Why are Buddhist monks attacking Muslims?


Of all the moral precepts instilled in Buddhist monks the promise not to kill comes first, and the principle of non-violence is arguably more central to Buddhism than any other major religion. So why have monks been using hate speech against Muslims and joining mobs that have left dozens dead?


Everybody is at it, but it is small groups that are responsible, what the Muslims are trying to do is show the UK that they do not condone this sort of action, that they want peace between them and us, that people like Anjem Choudary are the minority.

So are you saying that all Muslim's are guilty of atrocities or that it just doesn't matter to you if they are sincere or not as to their condemnation of the atrocities?

Then you have drunk the kool aid. You have decided to condemn the many for the actions of the few.

Do you trust the Germans or the Japanese? We fought a world war against them, and between them they committed far, far worse atrocities than we see today.
