I have absolutely no issue with saying this was an act of Islamic terrorism. The perpetrator did it because they were an extremist who wanted to get justification for their religion. I hope they are tried and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. And ditto to anyone who supported them.

But this post is complete horseshit.
The bloke I bought a coffee off today (and served me a couple of times a week) who is An Egyptian Muslim, or my barber who is a Kuwaiti Muslim, are certainly moderates.

Me too. The picture almost doesn't seem real. :( How the hell does the school deal with this next week? Poor kids.

Geezus Christ it's got nothing to do with race. The guy who did this was within "white society". He was a Chechen living in France. This is just so telling of the apologetic mindset. Islam is widely practised in the middle east, where many people have brown coloured skin. So every time a Muslim does something horrific the appropriate response to not be racist must be to point out that white people do bad things too. That's just so inane.

What it has got to do with is people getting their brain scrambled by a book that in no uncertain terms teaches a violent, repugnunt, retributive, iron-aged moral ideology. And making excuses or kidding oneself about it does not help anybody.

Does horrific violent retribution happen for other reasons too? Yes, but I'll call them out too. Are all Muslims violent? No, but it's still a problem within Islam.
Politics would be the other reason. Or the actual reason.

It's well-known Islam has changed less than some other major religions. What has changed is a whole bunch of people being able to make a half-credible argument that Islam tends to breed violent extremism or terrorism or whatever term your choose for non-state use of deadly force.

And yes, that is a change. For much of the last century, the same argument would have fallen on deaf ears in terms of the broader public; and with good reason.

Communists were terrorists. Various sorts of nationalists and irredentists were terrorists. But Muslims as Muslims? Yeah. Nah.

FF to now, and Islam - particularly of the modern Salafist variety - has become the clubhouse of choice for all manner of folk who have a major case of fúck you going on in respect of the world in general or their country in particular. In respect of the former, consider for a moment how many converts to Islam have been involved in terrorist acts then consider what role if any 'Islamic society' had to play in getting them to where they ended up.

In many ways Salafist jihadism is playing an analogous role to that played by Maoism decades back, viz. as rallying point for disaffected or, in some cases, genuinely downtrodden people of varying sorts. (Admittedly, some Maoists merely formed political parties and barely threw a rock in anger but others went to to become benchmark murderous nutcases like Sendero Luminosa). And note: the Chinese government of those long-gone days never had a fraction of the resources to promote an ideology as KSA has to promote its favoured form of skyfairyism.

It's politics in dressup.


Salafist for the Sunnis, particularly Iranian doctrine for the Shiites have used Islamism to project political power initially as a response to American , British and less we forget French imperialism.

The other thing it’s been used for is demographic control in the Middle East, where the largest populations of teenagers and young exist and old scared men don’t want to lose control.

This though has run far past it’s initial purpose and certainly where Salfism is concerned is has no central point and nothing to negotiate with.

Unless the west is honest with this though and stops appeasing it won’t stop,

Well there has to be one worse one right? Its not as if they're all equal and teaching the same thing.

I would argue that the worst one would probably be Norse Pagan Viking religion that encouraged bloody warfare and death in battle as the only way to enter Valhalla. But that one is gone now. They did treat women better than Islamists though.

In terms of the modern most popular religions, Islam does seem to be the worst as far as inciting violent retribution and gross violations against women and homosexuals etc.

reckon flying planes into buildings, cutting off heads for cartoons and the rest of it is all the proof you need that the nutters who do this sort of thing are, indeed, nutters.

so bang 'em away at the shrink's pleasure if they even think about acting out their delusions. that's the civilised way of dealing with it.

No, he is correct, technically.

The Koran is intended as the un-alterable perfect word of God, not open for interpretation or creative adjustments.

None of these religious books intend for the reader to cherry pick "the good parts" while ignoring the vast swaths of commandments to do violence, which is what moderates do, and none of them are written in some secret code that needs to be deciphered and "interpretted", which is what moderates pretend. If we're being honest about it, you either believe what they say or you don't. Technially there is no middle ground. If you're picking and choosing and interpretting things "moderately", then really you're just inventing your own religion.

Of course in practise it doesn't work like that because people are f-cking stupid and just want to believe what they want to believe, no matter what the book actually says or anything ese. So yes, in practise, there are "moderates" like your mate who sold you the coffee, or the kids soccer coach who says a prayer before the game or whatever. But make no mistake about it, the fundamentalists are the ones who are the most honest about it's all about. The others are really just pretending because they like the life-after-death bit. Fact.

God is not a moderate.

I think after the Charlie Hebdo massacre and numerous other troubles around white Euro-cartoonists indulging in Islamophobia for profit people might want to think twice before holding up Charlie Hebdo as some sort of paragon of free speech. I mean what are you trying to defend here? Just leave it alone for a while.
If a group of people go around chopping heads off for drawing cartoons, the correct solution isn't to stop drawing cartoons.

The trouble is that generally this is an after the fact conclusion, and most of them die either from the act itself or are killed by security forces. Yes, you could ‘neutralise’ those that you believe are going to commit a terrorist act (the ludicrous situation when someone was arrested for being a suicide bomber), or did you mean these measures for ALL Muslims? Good luck with that.

Ask you bloke what he thinks of jews? Of gays? Ask him if his daughter can marry a non muslim. Ask him what he thinks of western women. Lets find out how "moderate" he is.

I absolutely agree with you that the vast majority of people hugely under-estimate the beliefs of "the friendly religious person" they know from work or whatever. But to be fair, there are obviously a lot of truly "moderate" muslims out there of course. I still agree with your initial post, because that kind of moderation is so at odds with the actual doctrine that it's basically a completely different religion, but of course they exist in great numbers. It's far less honest than fundamentalism, but also far less dangerous. In saying that, I also agree with your comment that moderates are the handle of the knife. Moderation gives cover to extremism and also--as is obvious in this very thread, let alone wider society--makes it very hard to critisize religious faith in a broarder sense lest people "get offended" and call you a bigot.

It could be inferred that progressives and SJW see victims like this man and also other incidents such as the Rochdale and Rotherham grooming gangs, as unfortunate collateral damage but we shouldn't make a fuss in the name of tolerance.

Isn't the bible full of similar shit and didn't Christians used to be pretty brutal because if it. Surely It's the people who are the problem.
The most common punishment for blasphemers was capital punishment through hanging or stoning, justified by the words of Leviticus 24:13–16. . Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him.

The most common punishment for blasphemers was capital punishment through hanging or stoning, justified by the words of Leviticus 24:13–16. . Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him.

Yes, Christianity has it's own history of violence. However, considering the religion's central figure was a sandal-wearing pacifist who taught to love your enemies and turn thy cheek, that religion was a lot easier to reform than one whose central figure was a campaigning warlord spreading the faith by the sword and preaching violent retribution and conversion.

The only way to stop annoying them is to accept Islam as the one true faith and to dress and eat appropriately

I'd rather take the words of the book and see how they were used by the practitioners' for violence, and subjugation of women. Then they stopped

The Islamic world’s worst enemy is Islam. Anyone who thinks Islam is not the worse religion by far needs a history lesson.
The worst religion. What the fudge are you talking about?
Well there has to be one worse one right? Its not as if they're all equal and teaching the same thing.

I would argue that the worst one would probably be Norse Pagan Viking religion that encouraged bloody warfare and death in battle as the only way to enter Valhalla. But that one is gone now. They did treat women better than Islamists though.

In terms of the modern most popular religions, Islam does seem to be the worst as far as inciting violent retribution and gross violations against women and homosexuals etc.

There has to be one "winner".
careful now, some would argue that's our 'cultural heritage' round here.. ;)
The Normans bro. :thumbup:
was thinking more of the 'great heathen army' that laid waste across the island and carved out the kingdom of jorvik, a couple of centuries before the normans delivered 'the harrowing'.

Yes, because living with the very real threat of violence over a cartoon and other perceived offences from those who have chosen to live in a secular country is an acceptable status quo. Either 'we' continue to cravenly accept these threats from a bunch of intolerant f*cknuggets or we tell them that a condition of living in a liberal society is that they leave their medieval baggage at the door and toe the f**king line. I vote number 2.

Unfortunately, the centre within the Muslim world is on the Right. In order to pull it to a more tolerant left, you'd have to engage in actions that will have Muslims advocating for a more tolerant society.

You can do this by using the army/police to intimidate them. This would be extreme. Or leaders could dog whistle the rest of society to turnon Muslims.

Whatever action you take, it needs Muslims themselves to advocate for tolerance.

How exactly do you enforce that? If you interview every Muslim and ‘send back‘ every one that says they refuse to change, you still have the problem that some of the little tinkers might lie, and also, where do you send the ones born here?

Millions of them are born in Europe so that is a non starter. What you will find is as the populations grow they will get less tolerant of secular ideals

The doomsday scenario (which I do not subscribe to) is they will outbreed us, they vote how their community elders tell them too and there will come a tipping point.

The ironic point is that those who defend them (the SJW/progressives) are the ones who would suffer if the secular ideals are abandoned.

Islamic terrorism and far right terrorism are 2 cheeks of the same arse.

No. But their privileged position allows them to say we should be lovingly tolerant of this shit (because they scared of losing their own privileges)..... and people f**king listen to them.
Get rid of them and all the medieval baggage and indoctrination of kids that goes with them.

Why, in a country where 60%+ of people are irreligious and don't believe in sky-fairies, do we allow these fuckers and their indoctrinated followers to have such undue influence over our lives?

That's not necessarily the case. In fact, it could go the other direction as shown by young Muslims born and bred in western countries going to the ME to join ISIS etc.
