Needs a hook.

    It happens every day. Every attack that these Islamic terrorists commit, there is mass condemnation. But unless you go looking for it, you aren't going to see it because OH MY GOD LOOK WHAT KATY PERRY WORE AT THE SUPERBOWL.
    That seems like a rather convenient excuse with little to support your contention. The links I've read covering such protests are from rather obscure sources. Again, the concern about lack of condemnation is not just coming from "where I live". From what I see and read, it's coming from people in nations around the globe, so your premise doesn't seem to hold water.

    It's supported by evidence. Pick any attack you like, there are Muslims condemning it.
    But you have to look. Not just scan the front page of your favorite news site. Google it.

    However, the Koran may allow for some flexibility in these matters. Stoning of rape victims ('adulteresses') is one of the older traditions among the faithful whereas hanging Gays in the town square, or throwing them from rooftops, is relatively new. There will always be a passage somewhere to satisfy and justify the more savage impulses in the human heart.
    Ask yourself this: why are there Muslims ready for full scale war, now and not before?

    Trust me, I've googled it.

    I guess you've concluded there is a global conspiracy to manipulate people so all those millions believe there isn't enough condemnation of these terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Allah.

    Or perhaps you're just plain wrong, and there isn't the level your trying to suggest.

    Yeah, sure. My conclusion is global conspiracy instead of the thing I told you was my conclusion.

    Perhaps I didn't articulate my response well. I apologize.

    Let's see if I can improve on it.

    If your conclusion were true, why do so many millions of people around the globe believe there hasn't been enough condemnation by followers of the same faith?

    Precious few, out of the billion-and-a half. I don't care in any case, because I believe that with a few possible exceptions, these are lies meant to put people in the West off their guard. CAIR, for example, is a Muslim Brotherhood front group. I assume anything it says is a carefully calculated lie. Yusuf Qardawi is another propagandist--a damned lying Islamist SOB. The only condemnation I've seen that rings halfway true is the one that came from the official at al Azhar.

    Millions? Seems to me that it's just a bunch of right-wing internet forum posters. How did you get the idea that millions of people share your view?

    It must be nice to have an opinion where evidence to the contrary doesn't matter because it's all a big trick.

    LOL. It's not my view, I just join the chorus. Prove to me there aren't millions who are wondering where the greater commendation is.
