Such is not the case, and the Koran is not the New Testament. I can easily blame Muslims as a whole because they are not speaking out against the atrocities Muslims throughout the world are committing. Decent muslims should be damning these crimes but, by and large, they either remain silent or make excuses. Of course it is the fault of the texts! Those are the basis of the religion. Otherwise where does any religion get their beliefs and how else would they be sustained? You have an overinflated view of religion, it seems.
    So, if you blame the texts, when so called Christians were commiting atrocities even AFTER the New Testament was written, do you blame the people or the bible?

    You have not read the Koran from cover to cover or you wouldn't blame the texts. You go off of sound bytes and quotes that are out of text. Read the Koran please, you look foolish.

    They may have a legal issue with entrapping every potential terrorist they can find.
    That is also one bombing. I fail to see how it invalidates a long standing trend.

    Did you know that Americans support the killing of civilians at rates multiple to that of muslims?

    To their credit, though, since 2005 they've been good and haven't suicide bombed anyone that I can remember.

    Why should anyone do that? You're pointedly ignoring anything Christians have done wrong because yiu have a hate-on for Islam. That's called hypicrisy, in case you didn't know.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Neither do Muslims. But Christians used to do as much and worse.

    Currently, some Muslims en masse kill people when they see other people burn the Koran.

    Christians, currently, don't do that when the Bible is burned.
