To make this work, you first off have to define an extremist, and secondly apply this to all religions and cults. Just because much of the supposed terror today is done by people of the Muslim faith, does not mean we should give other religions a free pass when one of their members commits acts of supposed terror.
Does not exist in Islam as far as I am aware. Islam is a very fractured religion with no head to lead the religion (like a Pope).. one of the main problems if you ask me.Excommunicate anyone that remotely defends the extremism. Muslims all over the world go into apology mode, everytime there is a terrorist attack. Muslims stick together. I think that loyalty to one another is going to be their downfall.
No she has not. She has explained why people are doing what they are doing and for the most part she is right.Stop with the excuses and own up to what's going on within their own religion. Stop defending the motives. Laila has defended the motives of terrorists numerous times.
Now wait a minute. This focus on Muslims is one of the main problems of today.. it is politically correct in the US and even Europe to paint all Muslims as terrorists. And as anyone knows, when a group of people get threatened or put under constant verbal attack, then said group has a tendency to close ranks. It is only natural.Take political correctness out of the picture. Everytime there's an attack launched by a Muslim, people swarm to defend Islam. Face the fact, that there are millions of Muslims that support what the terrorists are doing.
And for the record, when a Christian religious nutjob does something idiotic, then people go all out to defend Christianity.. Has Pat Robertson been extra-communicated and kicked of the air for advocating the assassination of people? How about Palin for demanding that Assange gets wacked? (yes Palin is a religious nutjob). No both are defended by people like you because they are either right wingers or "good Christians".. how about the paedophile Christian cult that is still to this day doing its "work" in the US? Where is the campaign to bring these people to justice and so on? Oh yea, they are Christians... so no harm no foul.. it is after all okay to abuse Children according to the Bible.
The focus should be on the person not the religion. When a Christian fanatic kills an abortion doctor, then the focus should be on the person and the people who twisted said persons mind to carry out the act, not on the religion that a billion people live with every day without doing anything. The same goes for Islam. When a person blows himself up in a bus, then the focus should be on who twisted said person mind to carry out the act, what motivations and how to prevent another person for doing so, but instead the US right focuses on Islam as a bad religion, and hence pissing off the 1 billion Muslims that dont go around committing acts of terror.
Because like it or not, much of the "terror" in the world today is because of US policy during the last 60 years in one way or another, directly or indirectly. Iran's hatred of America is directly related to the US backed Shah. The Arab's world "issues" with the US is directly linked to the utter blind faith and support to Israel. Bin Ladens twisted world view is directly related to American influence over his own family and that of Saudi Arabia.Notice how Laila didn't have much of a problem with the motives for the attacks, when it was America, "The Great Satan"?
Sweden has troops in Afghanistan. That seems to be the motivation of this poor idiot who blew himself up.Now that it's innocent little politicallay correct Sweden, it's suddenly cating doubt on her faith.
The first step to defeating terrorists is to take away their motivation for being a terrorists. It can never be 100% eliminated but we dont have to feed that motivation constantly with our own actions to supposedly protect ourselves.These are just the first steps in defeating the terrorists.
