    Blaming Obama only took until this seventh post. Who could have guessed?

    Let's hope the GOP can start a few new wars, now that they control both chambers. Off the books of course, in conjunction with phony CBO 'dynamic scoring' of tax cuts to their rich fat cat donors .

    Who was it who wanted to 'End the war in Iraq"? Who gave the dates for the retreat from Afghanistan? Who wanted to close Gitmo and release terrorists? Who complained more of the US Military than they ever did of the terrorists? Who has complained of enhanced interrogation against terrorists in order to get more information from them?

    Certainly it has been the left who has been responsible for the rise of terrorism throughout the world. Who the hell else? But they will never man up.

    abubakr shekau (leader of boko haram) has a habit of bringing up Bush in his crazy talks. I'd say there's a pretty solid case here that Boko Haram wouldn't be slaughtering innocents if it weren't for the fact that they were upset because EVILGEORGEBUSH LIEDABOUTIRAQ.

    So the fact that they are Islamic means nothing? Did you know that Boko Haram means 'Western education is forbidden' and it's official name is "People Committed to the Prophet's Teachings for Propagation and Jihad"? You must know that young girls are abused in many Islamic countries and denied an education? That honor killings are widespread throughout the world? Is none of this connected to Islam?

    Yet, like a true leftist, you ignore the obvious and try to avoid and skirt the truth. This is something you might want to think about.

    and what would you have me do? condemn all of the estimated 1.5 followers of the islamic faith as my enemy?

    Grant, my ultamitulm is this: I will not give into the hatred for islam.

    Boko Harem's motives and beliefs mean nothing to me, those are irrelevant to my opposition to them. I opose them because abuse their fellow human beings.

    Why the guessing game here? My questions were straightforward and needed only an honest response, but that was not forthcoming. Instead you now respond with the idea that you need condemn 1.5 million people. That's not necessary.
    Grant, my ultamitulm is this: I will not give into the hatred for islam.
    Who says you have to "hate" islam??? But, even if that were an option, does your unwillingness to "Hate" Islam mean you must also deny the reality? Or refrain from criticism? What makes Islam so special?

    Boko Harem's motives and beliefs mean nothing to me, those are irrelevant to my opposition to them.
    There is every reason to understand why anyone's beliefs can also help explain their behavior. We all do it in our lives every day. We expect certain things from certain types of people. We use our judgement through our experience regularly and can usually take some information or knowledge from their expressed beliefs. All we need do is watch a political campaign and notice how they want us to believe them. We can then decide if we do or not. Boko Haram differs from Paris only in its magnitude, but of course ISIS is also doing the same thing in Iraq.

    I opose them because abuse their fellow human beings.
    But i put in a few links to demonstrate just a few of the problems in Islam. That does not mean we "Hate" Islam or "Hate" its practitioners but we should certainly speak out against the atrocities which are doing harm to the world, and to a great number of Muslims themselves.

    How will Islam change if we don't confront these abuses? How can people of every religion, or even those with no religion, live together if we accept or condone bad behavior against other human beings? This is a serious thing and remaining silent on these issues is not a good thing for anyone. We need more people to speak out against this crap and not pretend we don't understand its source.

    i do not know what answer will satisfy you grant because i don't know what you are expecting me to say.

    Islam has its flaws as a religion.

    I want to believe that it is possible to have a dialogue with muslims, to come to an understanding.

    the followers Boko Harem, Al Qeada, and ISIS are fanatics who interpret islamic teachings in order to justify their acts of violence and slaughter.

    It's a good thing we didn't take that attitide during WW2. I mean, there were probably good Facists, too.
