    "On December 25, 2008, the LRA massacred 189 people and abducted 120 children during a concert celebration sponsored by the Catholic church in Faradje, Democratic Republic of Congo, continuing the attack on December 26."

    "In December, 2009, the LRA massacred "at least" 321 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to a BBC investigation published in March, 2010 (see Makombo massacre). The deaths were verified by the Red Cross and Human Rights Watch. Victims were hacked or battered to death, and survivors were made to carry loads for their attackers. At least eighty children of both sexes were captured, the boys as fighters, the girls to be sex slaves for the LRA members."


    Oh yeah:

    "Lord’s Resistance Army is just the name of the movement, because we are fighting in the name of God. God is the one helping us in the bush. That’s why we created this name, Lord’s Resistance Army. And people always ask us, are we fighting for the [biblical] Ten Commandments of God. That is true – because the Ten Commandments of God is the constitution that God has given to the people of the world. All people. If you go to the constitution, nobody will accept people who steal, nobody could accept to go and take somebody’s wife, nobody could accept to innocently kill, or whatever. The Ten Commandments carries all this."


    No Link, but I found it anyway, and now who's cherry picking...

    The LRA's ideology is disputed amongst academics.[23][25] While most academics and media outlets regard LRA as primarily a Christian militia,[4][5][6][7][8][9][10] the LRA reportedly evokes Acholi nationalism on occasion,[26] but the sincerity of this behavior is considered dubious by some observers.[27][28] During its brief alliance with the Muslim country of Sudan it also claimed to be Islamic as well, an apparent contradiction.[29]

    It's a political movement, using whatever religion gains them an advantage.

    If you saddle an entire culture / population / religion with stigma based on the actions of an infinitesimal fraction, that's hate and bigotry straight up.
    Infinitesimal fraction? It's not just them but also sympathisers and supremacists of various hues. As indeed I mentioned above.

    And the religion? Yes, definitely wicked and vicious, though human nature means Muslims themselves not necessarily are.

    Weird, I could've sworn the vast majority of Muslims dispute the ideology as expounded by Al-Qaeda and other militant Islamic organizations. That doesn't stop you from lumping them all together. That doesn't stop you from posting generalizations. Engaging in fallacious reasoning only shows the flaws in your arguments. I know you're new here, but you'll understand that as time passes by.

    Ah, you mean the people not actually committing acts of terror and violence, whom we are going to convict without any, much less all, of the facts.

    Well, I guess that just settles everything then.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This guy's a whiny loser whose only claim to fame will be this stupid event.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Hopefully he doesn't injure himself or anyone else.

    If he does, I'm sure he'll blame it on teh ebbil Korean.

    I think you're playing Devil's Advocate here, those words chosen carefully.

    I'd say a quarter of those Muslims polled are just as bad as they're part of the same vanguard, encouraged and emboldened by their own prophet, who once famously jeered that "I have been made victorious through terror".

    Peaceful Muslims I leave alone. Wicked fifth columns and the vile ideology itself, though, are indeed in my sights. It would be negligence not to scrutinise those.


    And these facts you summon? Let's have them so we can debate them, if you're so knowledgeable. I hope you won't be like all the other liberals or leftards, who when called upon to debate the ideology and the Koran back away and resort to insults!

    Right, so like I said, without any, much less all, of the facts.

    Nothing like an out-of-context quote from an ancient religious text. You couldn't possibly pull anything like that out of the Bible!

    I'll ask of you what I asked of someone else - let's have the facts so we can debate them! Don't hide behind hyperbole and innuendo.

    I've shot my bolt and provided links galore to back them up. Let's hear you out.

    And while we're at it, let us all hear you outline the context of the Koran, why and how it was written and for what purpose. (And don't just say 'God'.)

    Then we can all see how 'wrong' I am in stark black and white! Won't that by easy for a mastermind like you?


    Will you put your balls on the table? Or will you flee as the last person did?

    Generalizations? Beheadings common place, amputations, the stoning of woman, legal rape, these are the tip of the ice berg and all common place in most Islamic nations judicial systems. Lets not forget woman not being able to drive, show their faces or be in public without a male relative...
