What about Irish people... you obviously don't trust them either?


What is worrying is the way in Northern Ireland a relatively small group of violent IRA extremists dominated the much larger Catholic community.

When the majority tolerate those who are intolerant we are simply encouraging their behavior. The longer we tolerate it then worse it will become.

There is no tolerance, there is fear though, and yes that is wrong, but that doesn't make them bad because they too are afraid. See you have something in common after all.

Atrocities are atrocities.

You are trying to draw a nonsensical relation again.
A person and other followers of the religion/ideology he follows..
In comparison to a person and other people in the same country as that person.

A more correct, and logical comparison would be…….
A person and other followers of the religion/ideology he follows..
In comparison to a person, and other followers of the religion/ideology that he follows.

That would be like saying AB’s actions reflected on fellow followers of the anti immigration movement in Norway. Which many on this board, Including YOU, HAVE DONE!!!!!!!

It's very simple, every time a Muslim group praises some kind of atrocity committed, someone that represents a large portion of muslims needs to come out and his the airwaves to turn the perception.

When the nutty pastor in the south wanted to burn the koran, he had the oval office involved.

So does the oval office get involved when muslims cheer on death and destruction of regular people? And if it's not POTUS, is it a muslim leader? If they don't, people see it as a double standard.

Am I allowed to be wary of the 1 in 8 British Muslims who would like me killed for this thread?

• 1 in 8 British Muslims support demonstrators who call for the death of those who insult Islam

I am also a bit wary of the 2 out of 3 British Muslims who want me arrested and prosecuted.

• 68% believe that people who insult Islam should be arrested and prosecuted.

Can I be just a little apprehensive about the 28% of British Muslims who want the UK to be fundamentalist Islamic state?

• 28% hope for the U.K. one day to become a fundamentalist Islamic state.

CBS
ICM

British Muslims. Nothing to see here. Move along.

You're trying to obfuscate.

I'm not going to play that game.

The fact is that you cannot blame the actions of the few on the many.

Regardless of race, colour, religious belief or other creed.

Its a stupid thing to do. It shows a level of immaturity at least, and an inability to understand a persons place in the wider world that simply does not fit into today's global society.

Exactly right. They were brought up Christian. But, they ditched Jesus, and went off to find another path. Because they were not guided from early youth, in the faith of Islam, they really didn't know what Islam is about. That made them easy targets for militants, masquerading as Muslims, who have stolen and twisted the faith of Islam, and who are really fighting for Nationalist issues back in their own lands. Islam is the disguise they wear. The militants are fighting for power and control over their own lands, and have no real interest in Islam, the religion of peace. Their interest is politics, not God.

So, the lost souls got caught in the pit, searching for something new, and the demons possessed them, and stole their minds.There's dark magic at work there, and the poor ex-Christians have no clue, what they are doing, or have done.

Since the Crusades we have been fighting. Each side imagines the smallest insult and responds ten-fold.

We're fighting a war on terror that has become synonymous with Islam. Depending on the event or specific issue, either side could be at fault.

I applaud the members and staff that are trying to be reasonable, but this is a war on a multitude of fronts.

In the media
The classrooms
The battlefields
Residential streets in England
Buildings in New York

It's war that has been fought for centuries and sadly won't end anytime soon.

5,000 Muslims condemning the murder is what I would call a good start.

But it is only a start.

But you CAN blame the many if they actively support the actions of the few. Whether they are scared or not.

What Global society?, last I checked, we all still didn't get along. That's a pipe dream. I don't think even an alien invasion would change that.

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

When I was in Nicaragua, they had a name for folks like this. they called them "piricoacos", "yapping street dogs" They applied that name because street dogs often go along barking just to hear the echo inside their own heads, and it seemed fitting.

The loudest drum is the one most hollow.

It seems to just irritate the crap out of some people when their bluff is called, and then pointed out that it was called. they then have to bark overtime just to find a higher notch to place their bar on.

Hey - I'm just following DHS guidelines - "see something, say something".

Where's my citizenship medal now?

OK, I stopped checking after the 4th one. None of those links are current. All over a year old. We get it. Even though Muslim's are standing up righteously it doesn't appease you and the other guy. We on the other hand accept that Muslims are capable of compassion. Unlike some here.

Some posters, when incapable of refuting an argument based upon empirical evidence, are forced to descend to personal attacks.

They do so because of the weakness of their own position.

To be honest, this is the first time I've heard of a large group coming out to condemn an Islamic killing. One, I commend these thousands for doing this, Two, I have to say ... It's about time. Three, and this is the pessimist in me, but I can't help recalling that the Koran says it's ok for a Muslim to lie, if it advances the cause. (paraphrased)

You ask, do I (we) come out and condemn every murder or atrocity? I will as soon as someone does it in my name.

To the OP.

From a Western cultural perspective, one problem with Islam is the treatment of women. Were any of the “thousands of Muslims” who gathered to condem the murder women, or were they uncounted?
