The majority of Muslims don't deserve contempt from non-Muslims any more than infidels deserve "justice" administered by maniacs.



Wow. Sorry guy. But yes they do deserve ALOT OF CONTEMPT -- for not cleaning up their own ranks and openly working to kill terrorism and its maniacs.

Now that xenophobes are licking their chops, let me offer the requisite disclaimer. Most Muslims despise the barbaric tactics of radicals who have hijacked their religion in order to justify killing innocent civilians. The majority of Muslims don't deserve contempt from non-Muslims any more than infidels deserve "justice" administered by maniacs.

Based on what evidence? I'm sure that everyone that knew the The London Muslim Terrorists would have said the same thing. That they abhorred the violence and terrorist tactics and that their religion has been hijacked. Then the peace-loving, Elementary teaching, fun-loving, good-hearted Muslims left casually to kill the infidels in London.

"If Islam is not the problem, what is?"

Poverty, U.S imperialism/hegemony, George Bush, and the Zionist entity. < / leftist-victimologist mode >

Still looking for the surveys that prove this.

Islam is the problem. And the vast peaceful majority of Muslims that I keep hearing about are part of the problem too, as they do nothing to stop the mad murderers in their midst.

Another false solution. Waiting for the Muslims to clean house and eliminate the fanatics is simply delusional. It will never happen.

One percent is a lowball figure for the numbers of our committed enemies. Moreover, this kind of fanaticism and violence can be traced back to Muhammed himself, repeatedly manifested itself in 1,500 years of conquest and enslavement, and is embedded in their Holy Koran.

There is nothing good about Islam. Nothing. Evil and wicked cult.

Until the hatred that breeds that kind of cultic dementia is eliminated by the moderate Muslims who insist on the West's understanding, Islam has a problem.

At first, I thought this article was going to speak the truth, but then it veered off into the ditch containing all the other BS comments on Islam.

Moderate Muslims are apostates and religious Muslims are potential terrorists.

Islam cannot eliminate the cultic dementia of Islam without eliminating itself...and that ain't gonna happen

Me too. The pro-terrorist left is trying to make this comment a truth by repeating it over and over again. Sadly, many on the right are echoing this unproven thought therefore weakening the fight against terror.

I too once believed that peaceful Muslims were outraged by terrorist acts in the name of Islam but my belief has weakened due to the lack of actual facts to support the claim.

I've been hearing more and more of them speaking out lately on the radio and T.V. I can't say that this a reformation in its infancy or anything but, anecdotally it seems that some of them are waking up.

Many of them are afraid of being murdered in their sleep by the terrorists.

Tell me, would you call the papers and the television stations and announce that you were going to publicly burn and destroy a Koran and then let them take pictures and footage identifying you to the terrorists?

Me neither. You and I both know that the police cannot protect us.

...

We need to remind these individuals then that silence is acquiescence. Evil will continue if the good remain silent.

The society that spawns terrorism must give tacit approval or the terrorism would cease.

After Israel, after NYC, after Beslan, after Bali, after Madrid, after London...the only one to elicit an apology, meagre "outrage" is London. Guess this was the victim they couldn't entirely "justify".

If I didn't have a family to worry about, I would. A couple of heads on pikes can do wonders for the resolve of would-be terrorists.

As Brits stiffen their upper lips and politicians hustle to reiterate that Islam is not the problem, cognitive dissonance grips the planet.

let me offer the requisite disclaimer. Most Muslims despise the barbaric tactics of radicals who have hijacked their religion in order to justify killing innocent civilians. The majority of Muslims don't deserve contempt from non-Muslims any more than infidels deserve "justice" administered by maniacs.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
The first paragraph asserting that cognitive dissonance is at the heart of the West's response to islamic terrorism immediately adopts it.

I think the malady is closer to insanity.

Clearly, the entire islamic community can't be totally deaf and dumb. But that's exactly how it behaves.
Occam's Razor rules.

Of couse the entire islamic community must be held accountable!

So only 1% of Muslims are considered "radical", huh? It's comforting to know that there are "only" about 12,000,000 potential mass murderers who hate everyone else out there. I feel that 1% is extremely low if you consider the number who pass through the madrassas in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan only, year after year after year.

Surveys prove squat. I lie to every survey I am caught in. Deliberately.

The only thing that can prove attitude is behavior. Total silence and non-response to murderous behavior is itself behavior.
