i realy can't understand how you condemn the entire muslims in the world because of some terrorism happened for political reasons by group or two of muslims in some place in the world ?




so that may be i need to know your definati
well , you think that radical of islam are in large numbers , while i think that not exceed 5% of muslims in the world
on for " radical muslim " please


well . i'm glad to inform you something different , you can check the truth by yourself





if they said that they kill people in the name of God , the true muslims will condemen them and raise objections about thier understanding and their allegations and thier actions
what other things you suggesting for relegious to do ?
A "group or two of Muslims somewhere in the world?" You are either the most naive person I have ever given the benefit of a respose to, or you are playing me for an idiot. I do believe it's the latter of the two. I am not condemning INNOCENT Muslims of terrorism, I am condemning them for their indifference to these acts committed by others.

My definition of a radical Muslim - Those that believe in committing acts of violence in the name of Allah as a vehicle for spreading their hateful worldview to the infidel. Those who blow themselves up in crowded areas, run over their offspring with the family sedan, and treat women as mere possessions - lower than the family dog. I could extend this list, but you get the picture.

And if you think that 5% is a small number, if the figure really is THAT low, let me put it into perspective for you and others reading this post: The total population of black males in the U.S. sits at roughly 6%. There are a lot of black males in the U.S. Now, think about the total population of Muslims in the world. 5% is a lot of radical Muslims!

What is your personal way of condemning Muslims who use violence to get their point across? Just curious.

who said to you that they are indifference to these acts ? we condemned every terrorist and every crime happens in the name of religion
what you do't know is that muslims countries themselfs suffered from terrorism sometimes

What?! OMG! That is the dumbest excuse for a tax that I've ever heard of! What a screwed up way of thinking....could you imagine us having like a "non Catholic tax" or something?!

elwill, I stand corrected. You fall into the first group. I think you ARE the most naive person I have gave the benefit of a respose to. The english barrier is an issue, as well. I did not state that there were only 2 "peaceful" Muslim groups in the world. I was calling you on your belief that there were only 2 "radical" Muslim groups in the world. I really don't believe you get it.

This piece of human garbage gets his just reward. I hope they blast loud heavy metal or gangsta rap music into his cell every day of his time he serves in prison.

The way Muslims have historically treated people of other religions who were under their rule would be the main reason I would prefer death then to live under Muslim rule............

I am serious........
