gundar.twinklefluffy: You know since their whole purpose in life appears to be:A)convert the non-believer.B)kill the non-believer.C)get martyred and collect their proceed directly to paradise and bounce on virgins.

Yeah, well it appears that way to you because you're ignorant. You can fix that by maybe reading something. Really.

Ever been to Indonesia? The largest Muslim country in the entire world? You're clearly not talking about them, you're talking about extremist Muslims.

Like, say, Wahabbists. You know, the Saudis? The theocratic monarchy that lops off people's hands for stealing, beats people in the streets if they're not at a mosque during prayer time, and decapitates criminals in public.

The Saudis. Recipients of massive amounts of aid from the US? The guys in robes that you constantly see US PRESIDENTS KISSING AND BOWING TO.

Yeah, those extremists. Your friends.

farking_Gary : Isn't it time for you to face east or something?

I'm not Muslim, so no.

I've known some minorities that think that way. Face it, like the old saying goes, "one bad apple spoils the bunch." It's in our nature to color an entire group of people by their most obnoxious representatives.

abigsmurf: Just Kidding, he's outraged over the fact different people find different things offensive.


I'm not subby, but I would guess that he's just sick of them crying butthurt about anything and everything. Let's ignore these groups' religion or skin colour or whatever, because it's totally irrelevant - we've simply reached the point where they might as well be toddlers throwing tantrums in the candy aisle.

Do they know about how many places in Spain are called Medina?

There's also Medina, NY; Medina, OH; and Medina, TX.

Speaking of which, what about Debra Medina?

Oh, boy. This could get really ugly.

rubi_con_man: On the other hand, most guys I know who are wanted go into hiding, and don't go to large outdoor weddings when they know someone has a hit on them

Silly me. I assume "the good guys" wouldn't kill 40 people, including women and children, just to hopefully kill a suspected terrorist.

I guess Jesus Christ would be totally cool with that, though, right? I mean, life isn't sacred for EVERYONE, right? When He says "love thy neighbour" he means your IMMEDIATE neighbour, not EVERYONE. And certainly not non-Christians.

Bombing a wedding from 20,000 feet based on intel that a terrorist might or might not be there is not only totally immoral, it will tend to get the relatives of the 40 innocent people killed pretty angry. By MAYBE killing the one guy they wanted to, they've got possibly hundreds of relatives who now think "Well, hell, if none of us are innocent civlians, then neither are any Americans."

Stay safe.

jakomo002: yeah, those extremists. Your friends.


Not my friends there junior.

I do not care who you are. If you have an invisible sky friend with an amusement park of unearthly delights to where you expect to go when you die, then you should be sent up as soon as possible. There should be none if this mucking about in the "prison of the flesh". If the belief structure that one subscribes to teaches you that you are not of this world, and your true place is in the next world, then it seems truly cruel to detain the faithful no longer than absolutely necessary.

Seriously, how can you do anything but pay lip service to making ones existence better in "life" when all that matters is dying to make it to the next "life"?

That's the textbook definition of a devout Christian believer too, son. Do all you can do to get into Heaven and get your Eternal Reward.

But Christians don't have extremists who interpret the Bible in their own narrow way, right? There's no such thing. Anywhere. Ever. Certianly never in, say, the late 30's in Germany.

If you have an invisible sky friend with an amusement park of unearthly delights to where you expect to go when you die, then you should be sent up as soon as possible.

If I ascribe to any religion, it's Buddhism. No invisible sky friend, no amusement parks, just me.

And it's had exactly how much effect? Oh, that's right, it hasn't done a damn thing. How many hundreds and thousands of their own people have they killed by suicide bombings and IEDs in Afghanistan and Pakistan in the last couple of years?

I'm sorry, but some of those people over there need to be on a Midol drip to help ease their terminal PMS. (^)


Glad that so many of our sons and daughters (and the sons and daughters of other countries!) are dying to bring freedom to these countries! I would hate to think that they have died simply to replace one group of tyrants for a group of American-backed tyrants.

But many of them also point out that the very same actions are in keeping with the teachings of the Quran and the Hadith.

There's no difference between an athiest saying that all religious people should die, a Christian saying that all non-Christians should die or a Muslim saying that all non-Muslims should die. You make the rest of us look like assholes.

Yes, yes, because the Christian religion is a religion of PEACE. I keep forgetting. Hitler happened to be a Christian, and the Nazis were big on using Christian icons, but that's irrelevant because it was a long time ago. And things from a long time ago have no place in a discussion about religious extremists.

Gotcha. Everything happens in a vaccuum. Muslims just hate non-Muslims as a rule. They're the only religion around that thinks that their way is the right way, and ALL OF THEM worldwide have the same viewpoints on all issues.

My mistake.

I do not recall excluding any religion from my point of view. In fact the the Christians should have been killed off in the first place for poking the hornets nest that is the middle east in the first place. All in the name of making sure the crusader knights would get a fast pass into their version of the giant amusement park in the sky.


If you have an invisible sky friend with an amusement park of unearthly delights to where you expect to go when you die, then you should be sent up as soon as possible.

If I ascribe to any religion, it's Buddhism. No invisible sky friend, no amusement parks, just me.


Well at least with Buddhism when you try not to be a dick in this life it only affects how you think you will return in your next life. Too bad its not enough to be nice and not be an asshole in this life for the sake of just making everybody's journey from cradle to grave less annoying.

Yes I know my views tend to put me solidly in the fail column in regards to "Try to not be an asshole" aspect. Of course the people who tend to believe that actually think they are headed to a better place when they die. That belief makes the rest of their opinions meaningless, when somebody's opinions mean something to me, they do not get treated with the contempt I hold for the delusional.

hubiestubert: PacManDreaming: hubiestubert: It is having an effect.

I'm afraid that's wishful thinking on your part. All you have to do is look at the behavior of the Muslims in Europe, Asia and the Middle East and see that that fatwa has done absolutely nothing. And I half expect the UK to erupt in mass violence any day now because of them.

And as nice as it would be to get them all on the same page and stop bombing and killing one another, I'm afraid all that would accomplish is uniting them and getting them all to focus their hate and violence towards non-Muslims.

You do realize that the rise of nationalists and racists who are squeezing the Muslim communities across Europe is responsible for a great deal of strife, right?

This is NOT in a vacuum.

And MOST Muslims in Europe, Asia, and in the US are going about their business, and living their lives. It's sort of like pointing to the KKK or Aryan Nation motherfarkers and saying, "See? White people be CRAZY!"

Or do you see the billion or so Muslims across the world as potential enemies? You do realize that in a population of hundreds of millions across the world, that the actions of the largest asshats don't make up the whole. That Imams and Muslim scholars decry their actions, and point out that it goes against the Koran and the Hadith, it draws a line in the sand.

Which, IS in part what the Jihadists are looking for. To polarize issues. To make it a "with us" or "against us" sort of thing. It is essential to framing their struggle.

Does the fact that Christians have committed atrocities against Muslims in Eastern Europe, and visa versa as well, mean that ALL of Christianity failed?

Looking at the issue as if Islam was a single cohesive faith, when only about 25% of the entire Muslim population in Arab nations, and more Muslims in the US than the entire population of Israel, what does that say?

Is this guy a threat?



How about this guy? Was his religion an impediment to his service?



Or can we take a pause for a few teachable moments?

Asshats, we call asshats. We let folks take responsibility for their actions, and we certainly protect ourselves, but castigating the world's Islamic population for the actions of those who admit that they are going against the teachings of Islam and Mohammed himself. In the same way, we allow folks to take responsibility for doing the right thing as well.

If you want the Muslim community to take responsibility, then how can you complain when folks do exactly that? When folks step forward, and put their lives on the line to do the right thing--which is WHY folks are getting blowed up for taking a stand against these Jihadist thugs--then can you not admit that their sacrifice means something as well?

gundar_twinklefluffy "Islamic terrorism" is the catchphrase, but the truth is most "Islamic terrorists" use religion as a justification, but in their own mind they have valid reasons.

Let's face it, the United States of America supports a lot of terrible dictatorial regimes in the Middle East. We can use Egypt or Saudi Arabia as an example.

A lot of people in the area have the perception that the US is only interested in keeping the status quo in those countries. That terribly brutal regimes are propped up by the Americans, in the interest of keeping the oil spigots open. And it's the actual people who suffer, not those in power. They get fatter and richer.

And history is on their side. You supported Saddam right up until he invaded Kuwait. Heck, you sold him more weapons AFTER he gassed his people in Halabja. AFTER. But American for the most part s seem to be either wilfully ignorant of history, or just ignorant.

Provide an argument as to why we should detain them. Their purpose in this life is to get to the next perfect stage of their being. To delay them in any manner should be considered (by their standards) " A sin".

The only reason to detain them would be if you could prove without a doubt that there is no after life. There is no heaven. There is nothing beyond this life. This is it. Deal with it as you must. I can not prove they are wrong. Can you?

If you have to go on the same faith that they use to "know" where they are going, then how can you not give them every possible help. To do anything less, would be uncivilized.

Why do you want to see them suffering in this world they are clearly not content with? It sounds like you are the asshole to me. Do you hang around and watch the animal you just accidentally hit in your motorcar thrash around and suffer or do you A) either try to get it to a vet to fix it? or B)if the animal is clearly terminal end its suffering? or possibly C) just keep on driving because its only an animal and you are too important to know what sort of destruction your life wreaks?

And I wholeheartedly disagree on that point.

Iit IS enough for people to try to be nice and compassionate and to try to alleviate the suffering of others, as well as their own.

I mean, if 50% of the world thought that way, this world would be 500% better off.

Me too, most soldiers are right wing christians, I say send them to more dangerous places to thin out the scum a little bit before it can come home and vote.

Lack of HTML on my portable browser aside, as a member of the military, I hope you live a very long life, longer than all of your friends and family, possible children included. I hope your life is filled with everyhing you ever hoped for, and that when you finally do get ready to die, the sense that it was all for nothing comes crashing down upon you like a hammer blow of unimaginable depression, which will last right up to the moment you finally pass on.

/not right wing fundie Christian
//neither are anyone else I have met in the service
///also tolerant of every religion except scientology
////fark those people

inthemiddleofitall: Hi There everyone! Im a new guy here so feel free to roast me alive for this. On the subject of the name Medina. There are twelve places in the states with the name Medina(one being a river called Medinah in Texas) a town called Medina on the Isle of Wight and a river named Medina in the same place. A place in the Dominican Republic,Australia,Hungary and many others and i bet you they are all just as booze slinging and sinful as this pub in the eyes of the complainants. So if they want to start griping about this they had better look to ALL the other places too.


It's also a pretty common surname in Spanish speaking countries.

Oh hey I did scroll up and noticed it, Testicle.

I must have seen the part addressed to me and ignored the first part.

I could blame lack of coffee, or a over-excited dog running around, but I also suffer from a common affliction.

PHIS.

Periodic Human Incompetency Syndrome.

Your anonymous Internet opinion is noted, and shall be given the attention it deserves.
