What I said about age was a generalization, if it were not obvious enough, I've now explicitly stated it, yw.

It is a generalization which I do not consider myself part of, in case I had to clarify the obvious once again. I'm glad you understand what it means and now what I was saying. I may not be a muslim but I am more than willing to argue on their behalf in the face of ignorance and racism. kknp


You can argue for them till your heart is content, won't do shit for them in the long run.

I've worked with some amazing men while I was over there who were Muslim. They helped us a lot, actually. I also ran into people who were happy to have us around. Now I don't have a problem with people who are Muslim, I have a problem with the people who follow the religion of Islam claiming it's a "religion of peace" but are intolerant of others. I've known good men, who were Muslim, who've died because the "religion of peace" didn't agree with how they wanted to live their life.

It's another attack, and another ISIS win. The most disgusting thing is that ISIS are probably sitting right now laughing, and sipping tea, as we do the work for them.

You bet there will be some idiot Muslims that will join ISIS after this, EVEN THOUGH ISIS is their enemy. However, ISIS gave them a reason.

TWO terrorist attacks happened in the span of ONE WEEK in Turkey, and one of them was by ISIS, which happened just TWO days ago. The world was silent. Now, ISIS targeted Belgium, and the world talks.

This shit continues to happen, as they target Muslim countries, kill Muslim people, and they target non-Muslim countries, kill non-Muslim people. This will only lead to more idiot Muslims joining them, and all people continue to be a major cause for all of these deaths, simply by talking when non-Muslims are killed, while staying silent when Muslims are killed.

We are all terrible. We are all trash. We are all idiots. We are all just puppets to ISIS, and we simply do what they want.

Hey man, good for you And, being someone who makes a living from words, well xD who will (owing to the fact that I am still in law school) make a living off both the written and spoken word, I can tell you first hand that you are severely underestimating the power behind the art of rhetoric, I honestly wasnt gonna reply because im racing to take a quick shower rn ( I have an ungodly amount of criminal law to do tonight) So ill be quick.
1. You can say that about countless religions, conquistidors, crusades etc.

4. The islamic state is a product of the US government #bush

one thing the media likes what is hot/fresh/new, and there is more to it then just "non-muslim" even though some of that make me "sick" as well.

But about that with Turkey I don't know why, there could be all sort of reasons (what they got of footage, story behind and what they can do or if it was in the paper and not on TV as with tapes like that can be easier to make something about?)

lol got some problematic glasses?

Ignorance. What a generalization; educate yourself. Terrorists aren't Muslims. Terrorists are anyone who inflict terror.They can come in all shapes, sizes, colors, genders, and so on and so forth.

Been to both Paris and Brussels this past summer. It's terrible to think that ordinary citizens are targets of this senseless violence.

It shows that Donald Trump is right AGAIN! We have to be tough and ban muslim immigration, bring back waterboarding, deport all refugees and illegals and build a big beautiful Trump Wall on the border. The Europeans probably need a Trump Wall more than America now. Just deploy the millitary to round up all muslim refugees and send them back, and peace will be back in Europe.

Although not all muslims are terrorists, but almost all terrorists are muslims. Muslims come in different shapes, sizes, colors, genders etc.

Runec, I survived Katrina - I was living in Mississippi then. I know exactly what you're talking about! It was this experience when I was still married to an ER doctor that created my interest in disaster medicine.


Oof, I'm sorry to hear that. That was such a complete mess. I've spent most my career handling emergency lines and to this day there are few things that make as twitchy as remembering Katrina.

Actually, Islamist terrorists account for only a minority of terrorist attacks both in the US and the EU. Most terrorist attacks in the EU are conducted by separatist/nationalist groups. However, the media continually freaks the fuck out over just the Islamist ones. So no, "almost all" terrorists are not Muslims. ( Not that terrorists deserve to call themselves Muslims ).

So the majority of refugees are what? Guilty civilians?


When there are so many, a minority is bad enough.

Don't know if you're from the U.S but if so do you not remember Columbine and the horrific Sandy Hook shooting; done by non- muslims.

And neither of those were terrorist attacks.

You need, perhaps, to look up the definition of terrorism. Killing a bunch of people is murder. Killing (or threatening to kill) a bunch of people in order to coerce a society into changing it's laws, habits, or customs to suit a desired goal of the killer is terrorism.

Mass murder != terrorism.
Serial killing != terrorism.

Also, pointing out that "most terrorist attacks in the US and EU aren't by Muslims" is a pretty vague and arguable statement. Are we keeping score by number of incidents, or by people killed? Are we counting Russia and/or the Caucasus and/or the Anatolian (Turkish) peninsula when we talk about Europe? Both of those greatly change the math.

Either way, it's disingenuous; if you look at terrorism worldwide, it IS mostly "muslim" (I say with quotes because it is pretty easily argued that Islam is the *justification* used by terrorists, not the *goal* of terrorists. Many are terrorists because they want wealth and power; Islam is just a convenient excuse for them to do it).

I mean, unless you're saying that what happens to all those North Africans and Middle Easterners (edit: And Malaysians, and Filipinos, and Sri Lankans, and Afghans, and Pakistanis) doesn't matter, because "they're just brown people, who cares?". Is that what you're saying?

Not exactly. If a mass shooter has an objective or manifesto, as many are want to have, then yes, that is domestic terrorism. See Anders Breivik or Dylan Roof for example. US media and politicians have a severe allergy to admitting white people can be terrorists though.



outontheop wrote:Also, pointing out that "most terrorist attacks in the US and EU aren't by Muslims" is a pretty vague and arguable statement.


Actually, its not. Because both the FBI and Europol keep track of these things. Europol even issues handy yearly reports on the matter. There is also the ever helpful Global Terrorism Database should you have any questions about the 140,000 or so terrorist attacks worldwide in the last 46 years.



outontheop wrote:Either way, it's disingenuous; if you look at terrorism worldwide, it IS mostly "muslim"


I am bemused that you said this right after criticizing me for a "vague and arguable statement". ;p

Clearly no one is saying that. Wipe the spittle off your chin.

Well some muslims are terrorists...and can be connected through that like a virus as its kept alive this way (when the one leader dies they have such an strong network by maybe religion or other means.

Seen more arabic to somalian attacking others with no sense of decency or respect. (some can be a "reason" for it though)
But like the video I posted it does say some of that.
As to why I wished they didn't go through something that could kill themselfs even though what they are escaping from is a worse risk or that bet on some country.
Also would love to know about some similar attacks that isn't terror from them, that is in more of the same "category" of terror attacks?
Atleast Greek is building a wall?

More problems at FYROM-Greek border slows refugees' journey north

and something else..

Muslims attack Christian refugees in Germany
