Yes, he was on TV and stated that he had NOT seen the movie. That lost him some credibility, in my opinion.

Strange how these "groups" never make a public stink against the Muslims they claim pervert their religion which then contributes to the "Islamophobia" they're crabbing about now.
Many of them condemned the recent terrorist attack in Paris.

Right now, this minute, the entire Muslim populations could rise up and demand the remaining Japanese hostage be released. What are the chances of that happening? Instead, they will remain silent until after the beheading and then find a way to ignore it happened or come up with a way to blame others for it.

The basic tenants of the Muslim religion are good enough reason for Islamophobia.

Says who? I've seen interviews with the "real life man" and didn't see anything in the movie that was inconsistent. I've also seen interviews with his "real life wife" and "real life father" who said the movie was a fairly accurate portrayal.

Guess that makes it all OK then

What exactly are these so called "peaceful Muslims" doing to stop the 'holy war' Jihadist?

Quote:
The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

Yep. We should always celebrate mass murder, right? I find it disgusting that all it takes is the "us vs them" mentality and suddenly, killing becomes A-OK. Besides, the fact that he wrote his autobiography in an effort to get rich off his actions as a sniper makes this even more repugnant to me.

They can. Islam is an evangelical religion like Christianity used to be. No ethnicity requirement or arduous conversion process.

But people being the way they are, still think of Christianity as a "white" religion and Islam as a "brown" one.
