And that link is the shared ideology of Islam. Are you trying to assert that Islamist terrorists are not motivated by their religious ideology? There is within Islam a large mainstream Islamist movement that blurs the line between politics and religion, for them they are one in the same and the terrorists that attacked us were driven by their religious convictions.Besides, by loose connection, I mean everyday Muslims being assumed terrorists. For example look at what i said. They = Muslims. The subject in the sentence is Muslims. Muslims did not do it in the name of Allah. THOSE TERRORIST MUSLIMS did. As much as THOSE TERRORIST MEN did. You just argued there is a link between all Muslims and the terrorist ones.
There is, they both share the same ideology which is why it would be completely inappropriate to build an Orthodox Church in the town of Srebrenica.If that's true then there must be a link between all Christians and the ones who commited genocide.
The U.S. forcefully converted people to Christianity? Anyways we're not talking about centuries old vendettas here we are talking about less than a decade. I'm not calling for the dismantling of the Dome of the Rock, the Blue Mosque of Iran, or the The Sultanahmet Camii of Turkey now am I?By the way, there are THOUSANDS of Christian churches in many places where Christians laid claim to land and mass murdered thier people for conversion purposes. Like all of the USA. Or Mexico, South America, Africa, India...etc. Those are non issue? Those cant be used as case study?
