When UK had terrorist bombs from the IRA who consider themselves to be Catholic, I didn't see any campaign saying "Down with the Catholics" or "Christianity must go". Anyone can take any religion to extremes and twist it however they want.

When? (have not heard of it or pretty old case?)
yeah but nearly everyone here said that extremists is in mostly in every religion, but like what I said was reduce the rate and the rate of being taken into such ideas and thoughts that is extreme and that there is a good while before this part of muslims would calm down and become more modern or accepting modern values and ideas.

Boring, ignorant, semi-literate 19 year-old is boring and semi-literate. I don't think that a single one of your sentences has correct spelling, grammar and punctuation.

Come back and post when you get your GED.

you do realize it isn't all Muslims just a certain branch of Islam correct? it's the same as judging all of Christianity by the actions of the K.K.K. it only makes up a small portion of the larger religion.

i am not Muslim [i'm Wiccan if it matters] but i work with Muslims, my boss is Muslim, i have friends who are Muslim, and i went through school with some Muslims, not one of them supports the actions of ISIS or any terrorists. plus, not all Muslims are the same. just like how some Christians go to church every Sunday and others do not, some Muslims [like any faith really] don't openly practice beyond their holidays.

i think this whole problem was explained perfectly by Malala Yousafzai "With guns you can kill terrorists, with education you can kill terrorism.” it is ignorance and fear that will destroy us all. don't blame a whole group by the actions of a few. if there was a class of 30 preschoolers and only one child ate all the cookies before snack time, would you punish all 30 students?

UK, 1970s-1990s.

See here

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/1201738.stm



The first IRA attacks on England came in 1939. But it was more than 30 years later in the aftermath of Bloody Sunday in 1972 that a new campaign began.

In the late 1970s, the IRA reorganised into "cells" and placed small teams into England who, theoretically, could not compromise the whole movement if caught
.

To this day you won't find bins in the tube station neither were you allowed to leave bags or paniers on bikes unattended because of the IRA bombings.

This foolishness of hatred towards other people will never end as long as people have hatred in their hearts and mask it with good.

You mean on religion or on real people?
I would say I don't hate religious people but more of what religion does and how it is now for them.
Even though some is mostly behind or groupes supporting stuff that will make it as bad or having faith in such acts.

Terrorism of this breed is more the result of contextual situations than the ideas themselves. For instance many middle eastern countries are going through a "youth bulge" this is when young individuals are over represented in a given population. This couples with high levels of social and economic inequity, impoverishment, and also a population that skews male. The result is a colossal glut of frustrated young men leading aimless lives suffering from unemployment and dim marriage prospects. There are too many men for too few jobs and too many men with not enough eligible partners. They're adrift and vulnerable, unable to fully participate in society and are thus very susceptible to radical ideologies which allow them to channel that frustration and provide a sense of purpose. Add onto all of this a history of western interference in the middle east building up massive ressentiment against global north powers and you have fertile soil for the spread of fundamentalist islam. That's why helping to ameliorate those conditions is one of the best ways of countering terrorism, as if the population's lot is improved, terrorist philosophies are no longer as appealing and cells will have a harder time recruiting. Essentially you have to starve them out, because as long as terrorists spouting fundamentalist doctrine have anger and resentment to feed on they'll never lack for recruits.

But still they go to such, I have been seeing that what you talked about more times and groupes that where suppost to do good but in the end someone else takes over saying what they "want" to hear, creating a ruckus inside the groupe and maybe a villan takes over and lead for destruction.
Thats why I want to reduce it as it is a tool for them to use that supports their "view" and creates a mess that HAS to be calmed down in some way insted of let it die out (meaning they will make a final blow all around like the "final battle") most of the leaders are most likely old people and do control them well as they also try to escape death by sending more youg soldiers to die for them.

Religions create radicals that kill, rape and pillage. So what? How are you going to stop people from creating ideas or using these ideas to manipulate people? Are we going to throw people in jail for reading a book we don't like now?

It's really funny how people keep blaming religion for mass murder and people blowing themselves up or starting wars. If you post a ridiculous troll post online telling people to blow up their school and someone reads it and proceeds to blow up their school, is it your fault for giving them that idea? Should we all gang up and kill you for it?

Instead of blaming religions, let us teach people how to think for themselves, think rationally, question information, make their own values etc.
On top of that we can make our lives better so that people might think twice before blowing themselves to pieces.
After that it's security vs freedom. I'll take the risk that someone might kill me for an idea instead of having no freedom to believe in what I want to believe.
