Okay, I see your point. But, that IS what they call their religion. The Religion of Peace.

If it were truly a religion of peace, we'd be able to publish books we want to publish without fearing violence.

But alas, therein lies the irony of the title of this thread.

What we need is for those who believe all Muslims to be violent to explain just WHY we are spending so much blood and $$$ to bring democracy and a better way of life to a country populated with those they view as hopelessly violent?

No they don't. You know perfectly well that if I ever referred to Geroge W. Bush as "The Decider", I would mean it in a purely sarcastic sense, with the purpose of demeaning him, even though he called himself that.

Musllims, since 2001, have been forced to explain that their religion is a religion of peace, as a response to people like you who declared (with no knowledge or understanding of the religion) that Islam is a religion of violence. And, now, it is never used by anybody except for the purposes of sarcasm. And you know perfectly well, that when you used the term, you meant to demean Muslims and to reflect them in a bad light, and you intentionally used the term to show your contempt for what you wrongly imagine is their hypocrisy.

Reaction to Temptation of Christ?I dont recall the Riots,Firebombings..
Beheadings,Do you? People holding signs thats what i remember.
Thats what Christians do protest,and Boycott!
You know how much mocking of Jesus and Christians goes on in this..
Country and Christians arent making violent threats on people.
You can print a book or make a film stating the Jesus never existed..
And no harm will come to you.
Theres no room for debate or being critical with the "religon of peace"

Number of petroleum bombs going through the museums that housed "**** Christ" and that elephant crap on a cross exhibit: 0

Petrol bombs in a publishing house for The Jewel of Medina.: 1

So much peace.

Gee, a sample size of two used to classify hunfreds of millions.

By this methodolgy I guess since some 'Christians' have murdered people involved with providing legal abortions , that all Christians are murderers.

Makes perfect sense

When has Hollywood, of all places, put out anything even remotely supportive or positive of the so-called "current regime", our intelligence agencies or large US corporations?

I admit, the "Jews, Catholics and Protestants" theme is rather catchy and will ignite the passions of certain types of people, but accurate on the whole? No way.


You want incendiary, check out some of the Islamic movies and programs for their children. I mean, "Hamas Mickey Mouse"?
