The point is, you can't blame all Muslims or all Christians for what their radical members do. It is dishonest and it solves no problems.
    While it is true that radical Christians have in recent times engaged in violence, some of it horrific violence, there is more use of the mob and terrorist attracks by radical Muslims to do so than radical Christians (but let's remember the Serbs). That being said, I will say this: I abhor any suggestion that moderate Muslims are not doing enough. They speak out against the violence and destruction regularly, but when they do, collective memory forgets those moments and continues to spout out the same tired accusations of moderate complicity.

    I don't fit in. I see world circumstances similar to the early 1930s. A massive group of poor people giving themselves a superiority status, declaring all the world is picking on them, rapidly arming and declaring the true enemies are Jews, gays and anyone who isn't one of them. Unfortunately, we have Neville Chamberlain as our leader. And, unfortunately, this time we are going to wait until the other side has nuclear weapons.

    Maybe that is Obama's long term solution to global warming. Nuclear winter after Islamic summer and Islamic fall, Islamic spring now in the past.
    Your argumen is absurd. You want to equate the Islamic faith with the Nazi party?

    An analogy to what you are ACTUALLY doing is equating all Germans to Nazis.

The 'Egyptian Christians' that you refer to would have been followers of Horus ,Isis and Osiris who by the way WERE called Christians BEFORE the followers of Jesus were. And as far as Mohommed killing 'Muslims' before they became followers of Islam Yes there was quite a bit of killing done in the name of Islam during that time, just as Constantine and the Christian Church of the 3-5 Centuries killed countless thousands for not believeing in Christianity. And even made learning to read a crime punishable by death. Also to take a bath was condemned by the early church as was punishable by Either flogging or depending upon the locale...death as well. Islam doesn't have a corner on the Murder market. Christianity has done its share. In Fact during the Inquistions (not just the Spanish Inquistion) it has been estimated that between 900,000 - 1.5 MILLION people were killed by the Christian Church for being 'heretics'. We can sit here swapping who killed who and how many all day. I admit ALL FAITHS have a history of Murder and killing and violence to advance it's agenda. NONE of them are innocent on that front. But we no longer live in the Middle ages or the Bronze ages. We live ina more enlightened Society where murder isn't tolerated by the Vast majority of people. We have to condemn violence by any and ALL people regardless whether they are Muslim, Christian or Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. As far as Terrorists attacking Colombi and other countries where drug Cartels hold sway, well that's because most of those countries don't bother to interfere with the Middle East and their affairs. IF Colombia or Puru or Argentina decided to tell say, Hezbalah, what they should believe in and attempt to control their actions you better believe there would be attacks in those countries. So your premise is not only shaky it verges on the laughable.
    Thats was nicely written but you started with the Premise of before Rome which no one said at all.

    I am aghast a the level of social acceptibility that bigotry against Muslims has apparently obtained. If the slurs being made against Muims in this thread were being made against ANY other religious group, people would be getting called out for hate speech. But somehow this hate speech is ok?? What the **** is going on in the world?

    The KKK was/is a terrorist organization. To deny that is to deny what happened to a great many African Americans during Reconstruction and throughout the first half of the 20th century.

    I am not going to bother with isolating the exact quote, its quoted in 110, but Mmc stated that one could be a Muslim without belonging to the Islamic faith. That is, of course, nonsense and betrays a deep ignorance of the subject matter we are discussing.

    One would almost forget this threads about those muslims who find it rational to attack buddhists over a pic posted on FaceBook.

    Wrong on both counts. This thread is about criminals who self identify as Muslims but are in no way representative of the Islamic faith.
