Skip to comments.BEHEADINGS: Terrorism devoid of religious beliefs
Posted on 09/25/2004 10:48:13 AM PDT by pitinkie
Another American has been beheaded in Iraq. While we hope it is the last, our fear is that many more may follow.
Each round of beheadings brings with it condemnations from Muslim groups, both in America and abroad. Islam does not teach wanton violence, no matter what the level of grievance.
Legitimate grievances do not justify the illegitimate acts of beheading innocent souls and planting bombs in schools.
An insidious Naziesque propaganda is under way, perpetuating a myth that the American-Muslim community has not condemned acts of terror and brutality. Facts suggest otherwise.
All major American-Muslim groups condemned Sept. 11, 2001, less than three hours after the first plane hit the World Trade Center. A major American-Muslim group took out an ad in The Washington Post condemning terror.

" Terrorism is an evil response that is obviously devoid of any religious or spiritual basis. "
Didn't Muhammad chop off some heads too?
Comedy gold, Jerry... comedy gold.
"the author contends that terrorism is not rooted in any inherent hatred toward America but rather has everything to do with U.S. policies and actions in the Muslim world."
Absolute junk (the nice word).
The war against Islamic Fundamentalists must continue and escalate.
We are the United States of America and an apology from Usama Bin Laden himself will not deter us from our mission to, once again, remake the world into a better place for all mankind.
You misunderstand, O misguided ragtime cowboy, we do not seek your repeated condemnations (any more than we seek OJ Simpson to repeat his vow to spend the rest of his life "looking for the real killers"). Empty words, all. What is needed is an uprising in Islam directed INWARDLY, showing at once an intense outrage (the kind you see in the eyes of those who take to the streets, chanting wildly, eyes-glazed-over, slobbering-at-the-mouth, USA flag-burning, GW Bush-effigy-stomping ragheads), and a follow-through which has Muslim taking Muslim to the woodshed, Muslim style, gettin' medieval, until a genuine internal shakeout begins to occur. That is what we are looking for, you mealy-mouthed, warthog-faced buffoon.
"Unless U.S. policy effectively addresses the root cause issue . . ."
What, exactly do these anti-American Islamic groups want the U.S. to address?
What possibly has the U.S. done to bring this about? NOTHING. We are attacked and are being attacked because of who we are and what we believe.
I refuse to stopping being me and I refuse to stop believing what I believe.
If these murderers continue to kill us, we MUST kill them FIRST to preserve our way of life and life itself.
Totally agree...thought the same thing.
Sorry Parvez. As a chairman of CAIR, you have zero credibility. Two Americans were beheaded this week. What was your reaction? None that I could see...except to blame America. You were too busy showing outrage at the removal of Yusef Islam, a hamas supporter, from the USA. The fact is that your organization didn't say a word until people started questioning your silence. You are a slimeball of the first order.
PARVEZ AHMED, is speaking for CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). Any more questions?
I'm just curious, what version of the Quran are you quoting from? It is better English than the one I have.
I know I know....I read it and thought.."of course blame America".
Don't forget Beslan. At least a dozen women there had to make a Sophie's choice.
***1968 Robert Kennedy assassinated ***
Actually, Sirhan Sirhan was a Palestinian Christian, not a muslim.
You might want to add the takeover of a building in LA by Black muslims to protest the showing of a movie about Mohammed staring Anthony Quinn. They murdered someone there during the takeover. The film was immediatly pulled from the market.
Sorry Parvez. As a chairman of CAIR, you have zero credibility......
CAIR is the worst! They cover for the Mohammedan terrorists all the time. They are an ugly organization. Very ugly and calculating. They have lawsuits going against people who have spoken up against them. They are skunks.
Check this thread to learn the truth of the matter:
Really getting my fill of all these phony good cop, bad cop routines.
With over 1.3 billion people to choose from, where is the islamic equivalent of Ghandi or M.L.King in our era?
