This thread is a strawman argument. Let's find random crimes across the globe and attach them to one religion and then blame all people of that faith. Might as well say you hate all blonde hair blue eyed people cause you hate putting together ikea furniture.

A completely ridiculous thread. How some people can paint over 1 BILLION Muslims worldwide with the same wide (and ignorant) brush is simply beyond me. Do you honestly think all Muslims are like this? Good God. I have numerous Muslim friends who live both here in the US and also abroad (Malaysia, UAE, France, UK, Pakistan). And guess what? They're just normal people like you and me (well, maybe just me in this situation). They have never tried to "convert" me or harass me, or impose their views on me in any way, shape, or form. We simply respect that some people believe different things than others. It's a complete non-issue. BTW, my friend who lives in Pakistan (Lahore) is one of the biggest Israel supporters that I've ever met. Ever. So, please, take your stupid stereotypes, your ignorance, and your bigotry, and go away.

My friends are in Malaysia as well. It's ignorance like this topic that just breeds more ignorance, contempt & fear. The smarter people know better.

Please post articles on Christian suicide bombers, Christians who set off bombs in restaurants and kill non-Christian believers....

BTW, mankind has always been a violent race but most of humanity has learned civility except radical Islamists who intimidate everyone else...

Smarter as in people who live in the stone age?, people who believe women are to be treated worse than rabid dogs?, people who will kill those who are not of their own faith and intimidate the remainder of their faith with death, dismemberment and stoning if they speak up against them?

THOSE people? Yeah I guess you're right...

Look at what a very minor number of Nazi's did but you think radical Islamists are any different? LMAO

You can't cite the Iraq or Afghanistan examples, these rebels are fighting tyranny imposed on them by the USA.

Riiight.....

Crimes of War – Afghanistan

List of massacres in Afghanistan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Taliban - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

America replaced the peace-loving regime of the taliban and al qaeda in Afganistan with a brutal repressive regime....

Amazing what they teach in those progressive liberal colleges.....

NFN, what is that address you use? It sure isn't an apartment building.....

Lies lies and more lies.... (just like your Islamist brothers put out)....

Ummm, maybe I'm mistaken but that was basically confined to Ireland, nice try but no banana....

How many Irish suicide bombers were there in Pakistan? Canada? United States? Mexico?

Use common sense.
