176,632 people in the UK describe themselves as Jedi Knights

The force is not, apparently, strong with them though as they are in decline.

My point by quoting that is that stats like that don't mean much.

Although, the Jedi figures above are actual. The ones you quote are made up from samples of probably 50-100 people at a time, and dependant on when and where the study was done will affect the answers given.

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.



Well, to be honest I've not been through this entire thread yet, so I can't say if you've presented any empirical evidence here yet. Based upon your history in other threads, I'm pretty confident that I won't find any here, either - just more attempts at spin. We'll see as I move along, however.

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

Where's my citizenship medal now?


On second thoughts, what are you on about?

DHS wants us to point out extremists, so I'm pointing one out.

That's a bad thing?
In a way yes, they constantly do awful things to white/black/asians but when the tables are turned they act innocent and hide behind the race wall and it pisses me off

I don't know about the rest of them, but I, with most of Britain to back me up, would not believe the Daily Mail on any subject. Especially not things that give you cancer or things relating to immigration.

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.


It doesn't appear to appease most of the posters on this thread either.

Perhaps it is because many Muslims hold values that are incompatible with Western values?

For instance,

Muslims in Britain have zero tolerance of homosexuality, says poll

Another poll found

Only 29% of British Muslims respect the right of homosexuals to have a relationship. 56% disagree.

Come now, the "topic" is extremism in Islam, regardless of the OP. It is what all the threads are about, from the Bombings in Boston to the incidents in Sweden and France. So go ahead and label that site as biased, your opinion, my opinion...we all have one. I happen to like mine.

He has plagiarized links?

How can he have plagiarized links to surveys by third parties?

That makes no sense.

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?

REgards


I am a woman in Algeria, and women here are honored more then men. Another misconception. There is a reason for protecting women in places like this country. Its not all harams and nicabs!!!! Here you marry one woman, you live normal with equal rights, the women can work if they want, but the importance is not stressed, they can pursuing their own interests as money allows.

Sure! Why not? It's what the other poster is doing as well - he's just doing it en masse, against an entire bloc of people, and I'm being a bit more focused.

I find it amusing that you seem to be upset that I'm pointing out an extremist, but it's ok if someone else points to your own pet extremists, and tars an entire population of non-extremists with the same brush. So, because of that, jump right in and let fly with your own extremist brush!

DHS already knows I'm an extremist of some sort, so that's no biggie. I see no real difference between a wahabbi blowing up an entire marketplace of innocent strangers and a poster trying to ruin an entire population of innocent strangers with "terrorist" bombs.

Destruction is destruction, and extremism is extremism. Meet it and deal with it, but leave the innocent alone.
