I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.
Updated Europol Data: Less Than 1% of Terrorist Attacks by MuslimsThe most popular article published on LoonWatch was released in January of 2010: that article showed that, according to the official FBI website, only 6% of terrorist attacks in the United States from 1980-2005 (the only years where data was available) were committed by Muslims.
I published a follow-up article to look at the picture across the pond: I cited official data from Europol, which releases an annual terrorism report entitled EU Terrorism Situation and Trend Report (TE-SAT). The first available such report was for the year 2006. The data from 2006, 2007, and 2008 showed that about 0.4% of terrorist attacks in the European Union were committed by Muslims–less than 1% (actually, less than half of 1%).
Today, I’d like to update our readers with new Europol data: the data for 2009 and 2010 is now available.
This “mega-table” shows that from 2007 to 2009, out of 1,317 terrorist attacks only 3 of them were committed by Muslims. From a percentage standpoint, that means only about 0.2% of terrorist attacks in Europe were committed by Muslims in those years–again, far less than 1%.
We’ve all heard the oft-repeated saying of Islamophobes that “all Muslims might not be terrorists, but (almost) all terrorists are Muslims!” Without any shadow of doubt, this mantra is patently false. Not just that, but certainly in the case of Europe it’s completely reversed from reality: all Muslims aren’t terrorists, and almost no terrorist attacks are committed by them–less than 1%.
The Quran is a far more humane book than the bible anyone who disagrees with that hasn't read either. One example would be the supposed biblical Zionist genocide of Canaanites compared to the Quranic narative in which the Jews are simply told to "dwell" in the land sans murdering babies. Someone said that the NT is different but as far as am concerned the God is the same, and unless you're willing to question the moral authority of your god (not sure how since according to Christians he is the ultimate source of morality) I don't see how you can criticize Islam (without sounding hypocritical) for basically taking the savage twisted morality of 'God' and toning it down a bit.
also someone mentioned the golden rule to try and show how christian philosophy is better, ofc he/she ignores that there is an Islamic version of the same rule and many other religions have their own version as well.golden-rule-large.jpg

- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
