    No, the ideology is very relevant, since it's the prime motivator for the methodology.

    Obviously, you support the ideology. Yes?

    No, it's an either/or question. Shouldn't be a problem. Eh?

    Except there are 7 billion Muslims on this planet and the overwhelming majority leave peaceful lives so that would seem to negate the idea that ideology is the prime motivator. It's easy to mis-use ideology for your own ends, in which case I hardly see how the ideology can be blamed as ANY ideology can be perverted.

    Ideology is irrelevant in this case. People can believe whatever they want, even if that includes it's right to kill Americans or puppies or babies or whatever. That's the beautiful thing about living in a country with religious freedom.

    Obviously, you support the ideology. Yes?
    I could give a crap about the ideology, I'll support the right of anyone, be they Nazis or Nihilists, to believe whatever they want.

    Since the Muslim community has already condemned the methodology and the ideology doesnt matter, your point is gone.

    We've seen many examples of Muslims condmening terrorist attacks. Yet, we've seen little, or no condemnations of the reasons for those attacks.

    Another thing about living in the freest country on Earth, is that I can openly criticize a religion for it's warped ass ideology.


    I could give a crap about the ideology, I'll support the right of anyone, be they Nazis or Nihilists, to believe whatever they want.

    If Muslims fail to condemn the ideology behind the terrorist attacks, then my point grows stronger than ever. I doubt you'll hear any of the islamo-lovers supporting you.

    You DO realise that many terrorists cite politics for the reasons for their actions not a book right?

    Here is an example because no doubt you will ignore that.

    Watch Video 7/7 bomber's message broadcast UK News at blinkx

    "You may wonder what you have done to deserve this ... you have voted in this Government who continues to oppress our brothers and sisters in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq and Chechnya"

    " .... only a series of attacks that will continue .... until you pull your troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq and stop financial aid to Israel and US ... "

    Would you hear that? Do you hear something missing from that video?
    Oh right, that would Qu'ran quotes

    Politics has done this much more than Islam ever will and anyone who denies it are ignorant.
    Almost all terrorists have some kind of connection whether emotional or physical to a Muslim country that has political problems. Whether it is Chechnya or Palestine, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan etc.
    With or without Islam, the bombings would have happened because the problems are still there
