I call BS on that POV.

All that is needed to see how FALSE that POV is, is to see the reasons put out by the Taliban, Al Qaeda, and their clones, defending their acts.

It is NOT a tribal thing, it is 100% based upon their specific religious beliefs, and these group smake it clear that is the case over and over..

IMO, one of the most dangerous mindsets in western society, is the refusal to accept and/or acknowledge, that it actually IS Islam that is the root justification of the beliefs western society considers crimes against humanity.

Agreed, that surely is a cause for future concern, IMO.

Brendiggg is living in the region, and I guess that he would have some pretty good insights based on word of mouth stuff, unfiltered by the media.

It always amazes me the difference between the peoples and the press stories.

@ DC. Your response has got to be the most armchair-driven , dumbest response that I have the misfortune to read in a long time.
There is NOT one religion on the planet which is not altered, adjusted, amended, fiddled with, politicised or manipulated to suit local custom.
And where there is a conflict with an issue between custom and religion, I believe that custom edges out religion, or call it self-interest
Have a look at Christianity and the good old USA, gun control, war mongering, native Indian genocide etc.
Islam is the same, and the interpretation of that ancient value system varies from country to country, area to area.
I bet you are smoking a pipe in that armchair. Were you pissed when you posted?

More like the price of supporting a religion that demands you slaughter everyone that is not a believer in your religion, as they are less than human.

Islam currently is all about this

If you think otherwise, look at the response to the Danish Cartoons, and the Afghan Christian that renounced Islam.

Heck, look at Syria, all sides there are Muslims, and they are using chemical weapons on each other.

All Muslims are terrorists.
Muhammad Ali is a Muslim.
Therefore, he is a terrorist.

There is a difference between being "altered", and the religiopn demandign death for what western society considered basic human rights.

And where there is a conflict with an issue between custom and religion, I believe that custom edges out religion, or call it self-interest


And you called me deluded... rofl...

The difference is, in the US, and other western nations, the Christian religion does not demand death for drawing a picture, for committing adultery, for renouncing Christianity, for being gay, for females going to school, yet worldwide Muslims feel these acts demand death.

Not hundreds, not thousands, but MILLIONS of Sunni Muslims hold these penalties as CORE values of their Islamic beliefs, laid out not in the Koran, but in Sharia law. If you are unwilling to acknowledge this, you either are blatantly lying, or haven't paid attention to anything happening in the world for the last decade.

Yeah it does. The book does just like the koran. The thing is that some parts of the world are still a bit primitive (or seen that way) and they happen to be mostly muslim. Seriously look @ the budhists in the news slaughtering muslims. Budhists are seen as peaceful. Its the the religion but the countries and ppl.
