Again, can't agree strongly enough with tXr here. There's a great meme on facebook that shows a happy pre-war (WWII) German family with the dad dressed in his Nazi uniform and the boy dressed in his Hitler Youth uniform, and they're all smiles, probably a staged Christmas-time or some other family celebration-time photo, and the meme says: "I know many say Nazis are bad, but the Nazi family down the street are SO nice..."tXr wrote:If they subscribe to the sunni cult then yes they are terrorists, the caliphate is core to their cult, it is the nucleous. And of course the so-called moderate, secular muslims seem so nice and peacefull, but that is merely "Taqiya". Taqiya is nothing but being a sleeper terrorist until the numbers favor the muslims in the targeted nation then they go all jihad.voip-1 wrote:Well, that's where you and I disagree. The majority (probably 99%) of muslims don't fit any kind of definition of terrorist. I personally might find their religion unappealing and might even go so far as to argue that a religion that insists you "submit" is incompatible with democracy ... but that's a far cry from viewing them all as Jihadi radicals that are out to kill Americans.tXr wrote:The head of the FBI said it was impossible to do a background check on the Syrians. I do not call them refugee's by any shape or form, they are an invading sunni horde.
Islam is pure utter evil, incompatible with modern society, it isn't a religion, that is just a small aspect of being muslim.
I've done a lot of soul-searching over the past 14 years. I've always seen al-Qaeda as an enemy, but there are plenty of recent (last 30 years) photos and stories which say Islam is not an enemy, etc. (Kuwait loves us, the royal Saud family is very pro-west, etc.)
I'm a history guy. Got my bachelors in History and Political Science and went back and got a teaching certification in history. I'm telling you, if you look back to the beginning of Islam, it has been at war with any non-Muslim since the beginning. It is not just since 09-11. It's not just since 1979, Tehran. It's not just since 1948 and Isreal's independence. It has been since it started. The Crusades, the Moors, the Barbery Pirates.
Islam has been the enemy of Western Civilization since it's beginning. Don't let the modern-day leftists and bleeding hearts fool you.
voip-1, you said 99% of Muslims are not terrorists. While technically, that is true, you are ignoring that 99% of Muslims (any Muslim which supports the tenants of their religion) IS anti-Western Culture. When they come here, they do so to drain our resources, convert our people, and imbed as many sleeper agents as possible. Indeed, just creating larger numbers helps them to overwhelm our culture.
Another aspect of this is the nature of religion. Christianity is under attack in America. Churches are shrinking, fewer people identify with or go to Church, Christianity and Judaism is under attack by liberals in the government and the liberal media. The Muslims see this, and think the West is ripe for the picking, and it is. ("If you don't stand for something; you'll fall for anything...")
Plenty will say or think I am turning my back on my own religions' tenant of love one another. I understand your point, as I've struggled with this and had to do some soul-searching. I don't want to side-track this thread any more than we already have or violate terms of service here, but feel free to PM me, and I'll tell you the thought process I've gone through to reach my conclusions about Islam...
