    in the end, violence is a result of numerous social and economic issues.
    Are the Christians running up with a bomb strapped to their chest screaming "Jesus is the only Lord!" ? Because if they are not they are crazy people who happen to be Christians. Now, when a crazy person runs up with a bomb strapped to their chest screaming "Allah Akbar!" or whatever, they are acting BECAUSE of their religion. Big difference.

    Is that the only answer you guys have for anything? Stop evading.

    The '72 Olympics, 9-11, Boston, the first attack on the WC center, the London subway, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc......

    What do they all have in common?

    Looks like this is widely being treated as a terrorist attack.
    Obama and Holder would call it workplace violence. See Major Nidal Hasan.

    I tend to agree with your last sentence. Radical Christians, however, don't go around chopping off people's heads. Yet.

    They do in Indonesia. They do in Uganda and Nigeria and Rwanda and DR Congo. They probably have no reason to in 'Christian' western nations. Radical Muslims probably see reasons aplenty to attack 'Christian' nations.

    So if we want to take away guns to prevent gun violence, shouldn't we eliminate Islam to prevent suicide bombings?

    The only way to get rid of violence is to get rid of people.

    Which people?

    All people.

    All people are violent by nature regardless of their religion.

    While Radical Islam is an issue that must be dealt with.

    The overall racism contained within this thread.

    And yes I say racism, because Muslims are more likely than not to be Arab or of Arab descent. Which means they're more likely to be a victim of prejudice by certain people in this thread. You probably wouldn't care if you met a white muslim because chances are you wouldn't think he was one.

    Your average Muslim has nothing to do with what this guy did, or what some fundamentalist asshole does anywhere else.

    At all times.

    I'm more likely to be killed by a fellow Canadian than a muslim terrorist.

    In England you are far more likely to be a victim of violence by a fellow Brit than by any Muslim.

    The vast majority of the time, the most violent people in my tourist town are drunk, white males between the ages of 20 and 30.

    The racism in this thread is just sickening.
