    I don't care about anyone's condemnations... I only care about actions.

    sitting back saying " I condemn that!" is rather worthless to me... either do something about it, or accept it.

    And in the Islamic religion, there is this concept.

    People of the Book - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In Islam, the Muslim scripture, the Qur'an, is taken to represent the completion of these scriptures, and to synthesize them as God's true, final, and eternal message to humanity. Because the People of the Book recognize the God of Abraham, Yahweh (Hebrew: יהוה) as the one and only god, as do Muslims, and they practice revealed faiths based on divine ordinances, tolerance and autonomy is accorded to them in societies governed by sharia (Islamic divine law).

    The Islamic nations are engaged in fighting ISIS. They are backing words with actions.

    Most people tend to try and live their own lives if events of the outside world do not affect them directly.

    Re: Can Muslims ever condemn ISIS enough?

    Most of the peaceful muslims in the west have only one thing in common with the ISIS militants. They worship the same god. Their ideals, their methods, their lives, are completely different.

    Funnily enough, this same distinction is shared by Christians in the west. The horrors committed by ISIS are in the name of their God. The Abrahamic one.

    So how much longer until we can expect some official apologies from Christians?

    Re: Can Muslims ever condemn ISIS enough?

    The sad reality is that no, it will never be enough for the islamophobic fringes. You could show them thousands of condemnations by prominent Muslim, organisations, governments, royals and even not so prominent private individuals and every other hour there would still be someone posting that they don't see Muslims condemning terrorism. The irony of course is that the average islamophobe on this forum doesn't have contact with the Muslim world anyways. It's not as if people who declare their hatred for Muslims behind the anonymity of an internet handle would ever consider associating with Muslims long enough to find out how they feel about terrorism. They just continue to regurgitate the same nonsense over and over again because they honestly need the average Muslim to be an evil boogieman.

    I personally believe that it has to do with how boring the lives of these people must be. Imagine for a second a person lives in the middle of nowhere Indiana. They have a boring 9 to 5 that does just enough to pay the bills. They're not former athletes, they're not important members of their communities. However, when they get home and type away on that keyboard, they are exposing the evils and troubles of a world they themselves have never been a part of. That's what the internet allows so many people to do. Expose the realities of things they don't deal with and be part of things without having to actually live through them. Just as some claim to be Charlie Hebdo all the way from their computers in the US, certain people on this forum seem to just know how the average Muslim feels about terrorism.

    Depends on who is doing the condemning, I'd say.

    If it's a few in the US or EU, that's pretty much useless. ISIS don't care what they think. But if it's a LOT in the ME...from people willing to put their condemnation to action...which is something we haven't seen all that much of...that would be useful.

    What about the countries of south east Asia that also have large populations of Muslims?

    Correction: The majority of the Muslim population.
