    Well of course they're lumped together. What do you expect?

    Were there any Muslims marching through the streets to protest the London bombings? The Madrid bombings, and so on? Of course not.

    I feel quite comfortable in saying that you have never taken to the streets to protest islamic terrorism. Never!

    Instead you'll act as apologist, just as you're doing here, trying to explain some goofy story from the pedophile as though this is a Sunday school, or trying to define what a 'jihad' is. You're all like children, cowardly children at that.

This ad speaks for them, and puts the spotlight back on those who hate them for no other reason than their religion. Jim Crow didn't die in America. It merely chose another group of people as its target.
    Blame right wing extremists, and the compliant media for turning a simple situation into a rabble rousing gotcha political issue.

    Murdering innocent people all over the world was probably going to become a political issue sooner or later, Rickstolly. People can turn the other cheek indefinitely but eventually they're going to run out of cheeks and be forced to respond.

    The Left seems okay with terrorism, perhaps because their lives hold little meaning anyway, but those who care for the lives of their family, friends and countrymen frequently feel quite differently.

    The left is also all in favor of spitting on our troops, hating America, and using the constitution as toilet paper. If you are going to use mindless bashing with zero facts, you might as well get all of them in there, it's not like it will make your post look any more foolish.

    Guesses doth not make fact.

    And wanting Msulims to be able to build a mosque/community center is hardly equal to sympathising with terrorists.

    Also, if Christians, Jews, Hindus, etc are not expected to apologise, speak out en masse when somebody or a group of people pervert their religion, and use that perversion to kill people, what reasonable expectation do we have to hold ALL Muslims to that standard othwer religions aren't forced to live to?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Perhaps you can offer a better explanation of why Leftists aren't offended by Islamists, Redress.

    Unfortunately, Travelsonic, it is supporting terrorism, whether you know it or not. This mosque is a symbol of Islamic victory, which is obvious. Otherwise they'd be prepared to build it somewhere else. But, as you can see by their vehemence, this location is very important to them.

    If Christian or Jewish terrorism was as widespread as Islamic terrorism then it would certainly be time to speak out and publicly protest or, at the very minimum, question your faith.

    They are offended by Islamic extremists, but they also realize that there is a difference between moderates and extremists.

    Do you believe there are those who think every Muslim is a terrorist, Soccerboy? If that was the case it would be pretty easy to hunt them down, wouldn't it? We could just start murdering innocent Muslims and claim they are terrorists.

    But in fact we don't do that Soccerboy, do we? In fact we don't even come close to doing that. But there are some Muslims who do, and not enough Muslims complain about those among them who do commit cowardly murders against innocent and unsuspecting people. These we now call "moderates".

    Islamic terrorists murder innocent people and it is now the job of the 'moderates' to explain and justify why they kill innocent people.

    The same reason I am not offended by any religion that has had people commit terrorist acts in it's name. I understand the difference between the religion, and terrorists. It's a pretty easy difference to see, but some people blind themselves to it.
