    Have you forgotten that there is a logical end to critical thinking?

    After all we have been thus informed by our resident logic expert.

    Of course I'm leaving out motorists in N.Y.C. who all did.
    They didn't actively try to kill you, they just ignored it when you got in the way.
    Knee-jerk anti-government sentiment is not a viable political philosophy.

    Yeah, I guess if there'd been any "actively" involved, they really needed to go back to "basic". Quite apart from my not getting in their way, they were getting in mine.

    That is what is known as 'too many people, not enough escape routes'.

    How can ISIS personify Islam when thw vast majority of Muslims reject ISIS?

    Nobody's "afraid" to believe it.

    We don't believe it because it's sheer poppycock.

    The Koran DOES have context and your wild claims can only be used when taken OUT of context.

    Blame global politics and Colonialism.......don't blame the Koran.

    While we were discussing how to share the pizza......the Zionists ate most of it.

    Because following Islam as Mohamed and the first Muslims did requires abandoning everything to kill or be killed to spread Islam, and that's one hell of a commitment. Also, I agree that the majority of Muslims have no intention of doing so, but that doesn't mean they reject the concept.
    See something, say something, get called an Islamophobe.
