    Not really. In fact my claim is self evident. We don't really NEED an explanation, but I will play along for some reason.

    I said the following statement is childishly devoid of logic:

    "Argumentum ad populum" and/or "Proof by example" fallacies.

    You really have no business participating in a debate if you are going to use those sorts of non arguments and stand behind them when shown they are wrong. Do you still stand behind your erroneous bias: if most muslims do not support acts of violence then Islam cannot be a driver for violence?

    That answer is actually interesting.

    P.S. I am having fun eviscerating you. Please give me more opportunity.

    Terrorism hasn't any racial or religious boundaries, so NO!
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Many states use terrorism to advance their agendas, not just the Islamic State.


    The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odom – noted:

    Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

    Odom also said:

    By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation.

    Yes. The terrorists are carrying out their terrorism in the name of Islam. Most terrorists carry out their terrorism in the name of a political ideology or cause so they are known by that ideology or cause. These scumbuckets ideology is Islam. I also don't remember people crying when the Buddhist sect carried out that sarin gas attack in Tokyo and were referred to as Buddhists or when the KKK identifies as a Christian group.

    Not if it continues to fan the flames of Islamophobia.


    Unless, of course, we start talking about all the times that Christians shoot, bomb, and otherwise kill people even in the present day.

    Yes, don't let apologetic behavior get the best of you.

    At then end of the day they're ****ing muslims, no ifs ands or buts.

    Just like how the KKK (a good number of them anyway) at the end of the day are Christian.

    To say anything otherwise is dishonest and stupid.

    It doesn't get any more false than that...

    If the vast majority of Americans are Christian, then Christianity can't be the driver for the KKK or the Westboro Inferior subhuman church.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The results of this poll are frightening to me considering the clarity of the need to understand the motivation of the perpetrators. You put it well.

    The thing that scares me is there are people running around who are so blind to such an obvious truth.
