I do not agree of poisoning those dogs in regard of the reasons ... But I think those who were affected have another opinion than the others .
Therefore I do not blame them nor encourage them .
Well......not everyone, that is kind of an all inclusive term and is not correct, some people may well be attacking islam, some people, like myself, are not, I will, however, point out a mistaken idea. It is not intended as an attack, merely a correction.

You will find those are common insults used by all people world wide. I do not know of any religion or group of people that does not consider them to be insulting and does not use them against people not of their culture etc.

There is no justification for any of us to use them as insults.

I've only read of Muslims using these insults, but you are right, they should not be used by anyone.

I've been called a "Son of a B" by people of nearly every persuasion. If you ever drive in NYC it will be rare if you don't get called one, especially if you take a parking space somebody else had an eye on.

Calling a person a son of a B is calling them a dog as a B is a female dog.

mmmm... cabrito...

Never trust a person who doesn't like dogs and especially don't trust a person who dogs don't like. Two of the most vivid religious dreams I've ever had, ones that I can remember clearly to this day, involved my dogs. One was what I believe was the Rapture and the last thing I did while on Earth was grab my dog to take with me. And she was allowed to come with us.
The other was I was in Purgatory or Limbo and came to realize I must have died. I'm not catholic so I'm not really experienced with those concepts. Anyway it wasn't quite bad enough to be Hell but it was one step worse than earth on its worst day. I was surrounded by some people I didn't particularly like and found myself praying to God to get me out of there. I said "How can I see God?" and was told by somebody that I could with lots of prayer. Anyway, the instant I began to pray I heard barking and there came every dog I ever had running to greet me. I got the feeling that I couldn't yet see human loved ones, but the dogs couldn't be stopped from knowing I was there and coming to reunite with me.
So be nice to dogs. And I always said I'd rather have 4 barking neighbor dogs than one screaming neighbor kid.

They don't domesticate worth a darn, but they do love to hunt & eat those annoying dogs!

No, only when Muslim posters promote difficult, radical and hateful ideas towards those Westerners who see their own Christian culture and religion as peaceful and respectful (which I'll also agree is not always the case...). As well, we are all treated the popular American press's opinions and perspectives, which seem focused on creating an overall disregard and dislike of Islam's more fundamentalist and radical adherents*.

BTW, squall, would you not agree that there does seem to be quite a few of those*? Their generalized and unfocused hatred of most all Americans is not just an imagined thing, is it? I still vividly remember the CNN videos of "The Muslim Streets" on and immediately after 9/'11. Do you? Their gloating happiness as to the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans and many other nationalities by those radical and cowardly Muslims was palpable... and those videos alone generated an immediate loathing of the average Muslim by many Westerners, not just Americans.

Those videos were proven fabrications a LONG time ago. That you still believe them to be legitimate is laughable.

It's true that most Islamic nations condemned the 9/11 attacks, but...

Palestinians danced in the street in celebration of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the deaths of Americans....The Palestinian Authority could not "guarantee the life" of an Associated Press (AP) cameraman if footage he filmed of post-9/11 celebrations in Nablus was broadcast. Rahman's statement prompted a formal protest from the AP bureau chief, Dan Perry.
