I also grew up in the 70's and 80's in Scotland...I was well aware that the terrorists who carried out these atrocities were not representative of the entire population of Ireland, but that was irrelevant if you happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Neither did the terrorists particularly care who was caught up in their attacks...English, Irish, Scottish, Protestant, Catholics, it didn't matter to them.

Also many of these terrorists were harboured within their own communities, some from loyalty to the cause, some from fear of retribution.

As such you cannot wonder why people fear being attacked by radicals whatever their personal thoughts on Islam, it's not a question of growing up as you put it, but an awareness that regardless of the views of the majority of Muslims in the UK that these attacks can and will happen and as with the Republican sympathisers, who said nothing, you have to admit that there are plenty within the Muslim communities who will also say nothing and whilst there is no chance they will carry out any attacks themselves, they are, by virtue of their silence as complicit as the ones who do.

Muslims just have their sub-group of extremists as well. So, nothing to see here.


And yet the KKK, Black Panthers, etc., aren't spreading themselves around the world randomly shooting people, chopping off heads, and blowing up marketplaces. In fact, they're hardly very active here in the US.

And yes, I do condemn their actions and beliefs.


You are absolutely right. We have the U.S. military for that now.

but how come young people of the western world are not that in to extremism or fundamentalism ? Can you and a friend take a couple of bombs...blow up the parliament and get support from anyone? the only attention you would be getting by this...is from a cell mate if you get to the prison


During what period of time? You think there weren't destructive young radicals about during the 60s?

And how many bombs are we talking about - over what length of time?

How many events have we had like this - period? Are you really so easily led that you're willing to make that leap - Muslims are just flat out dangerous? They are the problem?


my point exactly. Did he win any support with it? No, it didn't made me afraid of white Americans...because his deed was aimed at the Gov if I'm not mistaken. It wasn't a movement, a group of extremists...it was a single man that had a grudge. Hardly comparable to religious extremist groups that have a continuing agenda.


Really - McVeigh was just a lone nutcase with a grudge? He had no support?

The Muslims, on the other hand are different?

You think it's all this or all that - but you kind of made my point for me. The Tsarnaevs may or may not have had some backup - I guess we'll find out further down the road - maybe

But right now it's looking more like two angry young men that wanted to make a statement

Are there any religious extremist groups in our country besides the Muslims? Have they ever resorted to violence?

One demonstration does not repair the damage done. I watch and KNOW that this is just a show. These Muslims are fearful of the threats to destroy their Mosques. I am angry and tired of turning the other cheek for another slap as they laugh and exploit our CHRISTIAN charity. I will not be lead like a sheep to slaughter. I do not trust this rehearsed public display.

You may not be aware of it but McVeighs own lawyer lays out how Tim and Terry Christianson had Al Quadia connections. Terry learned to make the fertilizer bomb from an Al Quadia cell while in the Philippians.

I've been waiting since the first World Trade Center bombing for muslims to come out in any kind of number against the use of violence.

It's about frickin' time.

So - Timothy McVeigh was a Muslim???!!!!

Explains so much - doesn't it?

Substitute Ted Kaczynski then - since you can't seem to understand the point I was making

Did Mr. Kaczynski make you feel afraid of white Americans?

Or was Ted a Muslim too?

:-)

Out of here for the day - give my regards to Casino

Really?

How dead is dead, exactly?

If you're dead, does it matter if its some Irish nutter who did it, or some fundamentalist nutter who did it.

If I look at the statistics - as some people in this thread seem to want to do constantly - I have more to fear from Irish sectarian violence than anything a couple of fundamentalist muslim nutters can throw about, because I have experienced MORE Irish terrorism in my lifetime - and so has anyone thats been alive in the UK for the past 43 years - than I have fundamentalist muslim terrorism.

So, as I said, drawing the conclusions some people want to draw, all Irish people are evil, and everyone in Ireland needs to apologise to me.

And, while they're at it, anyone in the states who feels like apologising to me can do as well, given that Noraid actively funded the IRA from the US for a considerable period of time.

Ok. We get it. You really, really really dislike muslims to the point where you try and define the faith you find so abhorrent in order to further your view of it.


I am not trying to define the Muslim faith.

Mainstream Islam has decided that the 5,000 Ahmadiyya sect Muslims who dedicated their prayers to the murdered soldier are heretics!


The short documentary is a collection of testimonies in which those Ahmadis who have faced persecution narrate the target killings of loved ones, discrimination at the hands of fellow students and what it is like to live in jail as a blasphemy convict.

Your OP



I am impressed that you can carry on with your thread, even though the 5,000 Ahmadiyya are being persecuted by mainstream Muslims, as if nothing has happened!

And I totally agree with that and of course the irony that it was a fundamentalist Muslim attack on the US that finally put an end to the donations...

As a white American I sincerely apologize for my countries actions.

HOLD UP!

My countries leaders did these things without my knowledge or consent. Hmmmm better for me to apologize for Americans not caring enough to inform themselves and allowing the warmongers who run this country to take office in order to lie, cheat, steal, and kill.

True story



Growing up as a child in the 70's and 80's in the UK, up to m early teens I was scared of Irish people.

Irish people were bad. They shot each other. Kneecappings and sectarian killings were rife. They blew people up with car bombs, nail bombs. And pipe bombs. They blew up town and city centres. I used to flinch at Irish accents and actively avoid anyone that had one. Omagh and Londonderry were the pits of hell.

Hell, they even came close to killing me twice..

And then I grew up, and realised that not all Irish people were to blame. Just a few. A very small minority.

According to some posters here - applying their logic - all Irish people are evil and always will be.

Think about it.

edit on 27/5/13 by neformore because: (no reason given)


Contrary to what's been posted by almost everyone who you disagree with, you still wish to make people believe that we consider ALL Muslims as evil. Not very 'moderate' of you.

You obviously have a great deal of passion in this debate, but I think you protest to much. To the point that you are blinding yourself to what's really being said.

I leave you with a quote of one of your countries past leaders...

"An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last." ~Winston Churchill

I imagine your countries government has done things without the consent of its people. I find it pretty hypocritical when an American tells a brit thats what you get for invading the world when America has more than its fair share of blood on its hands. I may not agree with some of your beliefs but that doesn't mean I am blind to my own countrys atrocities.

And next time read a link before posting it.

You claim that Ahmadis are considered non Muslim and have been subject to various forms of persecution and discrimination but you leave out where and why this happens.

Where does this mostly happen?

In Islamic countries which are Sunni dominated. And why does this happen? Because they are Sunnah. Nice attempt to twist the facts.


So you are agreeing that the Ahmadis (members of the OP's 5,000 Muslims) are persecuted in Sunni countries?

You do realize that 85 -90% of all Muslims are Sunni?

I don't think you did.

Hillary Clinton about Anti-Ahmadiyya laws Persecution in Pakistan Islam Ahmadiyya



State Sponsored Persecution: Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosque Sealed in Indonesia



Ahmadi Muslims are being persecuted in a number of Islamic countries now including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia.
