    Is the Pope a Catholic?

    Was Jesus Christ a Jew?

    Re: Is ISIL Islamic?

    I don't honestly know for sure because I'm not a Muslim and moreover I'm not a member of Isil. In Christianity the bible expressly states there are those who CLAIM to be in the faith but are not, possibly as many as half by some interpretations of Matthew 13. That said, I dint think we can apply a Christian formula in defining Islam because its like an apples to oranges case.

    In my armchair quarterback opinion, I think Isil is Islamic but this is just my best educated guess. I believe the president is being PC and engaging in efforts to do image repair for Islam. George Bush did the same thing after 9/11. GWB's entire "Islam is Peace" speech - YouTube
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    Sparked by the below:
    Imo, until a given religion has a universally recognized hierarchical head, anyone who claims a religion is the religion so claimed, and ISIL self-professes to be an Islamic group.

    The title of the thread should have been "Did you fall for it?"

    Anyone who declares a sect-approved version of the Shahadah (declaration of faith below) is considered Muslim/Islamic

    Yes I would say that they are the extremist, medieval, un-adopted to modern era, group of Islamic fighters, whom have tried their luck by force, to see how far they may go.

    Good question.

    No.

    The difference is that democracy is succinctly defined, and politically, DPRK is clearly not democratic. On the other hand, Islam [or any religion for that matter] is not clearly defined as the warring factions constantly attempt to define it in their own terms.

    Anything! Everyone uses propaganda, everyone. But only the foolish would dismiss the reasons they give for hating us, and believe the reasons Bush gave instead. In fact how could Bush, or anybody else for that matter know?
