This is just a group of criminals justifying their barbarism in the name of religion.Painting all the followers of Islam with the same paintbrush is just bigotry.

Now don't go and do what they're doing to the battle flag of northern virginia. I.E. Don't let a couple of nuts shape your view the whole religion.
EDIT:Of course many of those who defend Islam want to ban the flag for it's associations... I guess hypocrisy can happen anywhere...

Down the street from me there is a mosque and a baptist church sitting side by side. They even share parking. We have a relatively large Muslim population here due to all the foreign workers who have come to work at State Farm. No heads chopped off that I can remember.

Large radical organizations like ISIS need something to make them coalesce. In this case the face of it is Islam. That doesn't mean the entire religion is rotten.

For those saying religion is the cause of most wars, here's some info about WW1

Four underlying causes of war


The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand signalled the rapid slide into world war, but this wasn't the only cause. There were underlying causes in the run-up to the First World War.

In the 1930s, historians argued that there were four underlying long-term causes of the First World War:

Nationalism - the belief that your country is better than others. This made nations assertive and aggressive.
Imperialism - the desire to conquer colonies, especially in Africa. This brought the powers into conflict - Germany wanted an empire. France and Britain already had empires.
Militarism (Arms Race) - the attempt to build up a strong army and navy gave nations the means and will to make war.
Alliances - in 1882, Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy formed the Triple Alliance. This alarmed, France, Britain and Russia. By 1907, they had all joined the Triple Entente. Europe was divided into two armed camps, to help each other if there was a war.


Religion didn't cause WW1.

Let's take note that while religion causes some wars, there are plenty of other reasons why wars happens.

More and more Europeans are feeling "threatened" by the number of Muslims in their countries. Expect more anti-immigration parties to win, more violent attacks against Muslims, and more deportations.

Yet another thread meant to degrade Islam.

My sisters muslim. She's a convert born to protestant mother and catholic father.. she chooses to wear the hijab in our neighbourhood which is almost 100% white middle class who stare and make rude comments. Islam is at her core, and she's the most respectable, kindest, unprejediced and normal people you'll meet. She was crying a lot today, not only does she have to get abused and treated like an alien for her beliefs even in her own house by her mom's boyfriend but she has to see the name of her most treasured thing smeared constantly for things that only the attackers are responsible for. People can twist any religious ideology to become a mould of there own hateful disposition, but something has to form inside this person to have such lack of humanity which can't be attributed to anything but the person themselves.

The whole muslim world condemns these attacks! there's fighters in every country in the middle east armed to fight against twisted terrorist groups. Your thoughts never extend to those who you think aren't worthy of being treated human, you think they deserve harassment when they lose even more every time something like this happens. Ethnocentric news channels will never treat muslims the same way they'd treat what they deem to be closer to the West.

Seems to me that everyone wants an excuse to hate people, which gives them an excuse to kill people.If it was just about religion, why do atrocities take part in every region of the world?Take away religion, nationality, ethnicity,etc... and there will still be people blowing stuff up. People find it so hard to do, but I either have respect or not for the individual. I've meet good and not so good people from all walks of life. If you choose to crawl in a ball from fear or lash out at an entire segment of the population, thats on you.

Don't Dante me lol, religion is the cause of most wars, different view = conflict. Some might say "well those people are inherently bad", but I don't believe when someone is born, their path is already set to being evil or good.


I would dispute that. Nearly every war has been centered around the acquisition of land/territory.


Yeah that's true for recent times, but more in the Stone Age / Medieval times Religeon played an important role, and lets not forget ISIS are still living in the stone age, not modern.



No, religion may have been used as a tool to justify acquisition of land and motivate populations to go to war but I get the overwhelming feeling if they didn't use religion to move people to their cause there would be some other reason found. The plain truth of the matter is you don't go kill somebody for a religion that tells you not to kill. You go kill people because you are malicious and warped in the head and you want some justification to do it. And if you can twist it around enough to fit your need then you do it for "religion".

I often find myself in disagreement with Ai's comments but hands down he's got the right of it here, your arguments are just plain bad. Don't blame all of Islam for a few loose screws.
