Anyone read the wiki on the group and it's leader.

"In a 2009 BBC interview, Mohammed Yusuf, then leader of the group, stated his belief that the concept of a spherical Earth is contrary to Islamic teaching and should be rejected, along with Darwinian evolution and the concept of rain originating from water evaporated by the sun."

What a f*cking nut bar. He comes across like someone that fit right in with the Westboro Baptists.
I say we (the rest of the world) should have our own Jihad, round up all these crazy asshole and drop them in a deep pit and cover it over with dirt and then salt the earth.

mbillips: Everyone's aware that most of the victims in these "Muslim" attacks are Muslims, right? This isn't about Islam; it's about a very particular sect of Islam exported by those fundamentalist Salafist shiatheads in Saudi Arabia, and polished to a high crazy in Pakistan. We should be funding the building of Sufi madrassas, and freezing Wahabbi assets.


This.

The Saudi royal family has been buying off the Wahabbists for 60 by plowing oil money into schools all over the place.  We should have seen this coming 30 years ago, and then really done something about it when we saved Fahd's ass in 1991-1992.

Maul555: So let me get this straight... In Africa, where there is a huge starvation problem, A group jihadists thought the best target would be a bunch of Africans learning how to grow food?

Those Muslims believe some weird-ass shiat.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to be at church in 26 minutes so I can literally consume the body and blood of Christ.

It's almost like disarming citizens doesn't make them any safer from those who would seek to do them harm. To some people, this seems counter intuitive.

uber humper: I was told that Israel was the root of the Muslims' anger.

Nay, nay, everyone has problems with Muslims

Africans
Russians
Chinese
Thai
Filipinos.  Hell, the Philippians gave the Muslims a special administrative district to run and they are STILL shooting/blowing up people.  There is no bargaining with them.

/it is only 1% or so that's bad, but that's still a lot.  They need to clean their own house if they don't want to be persecuted the actions of someone else.


It's way more than 1%. Pew Research put out a poll showing that about half of all Muslims worldwide think terrorism is morally acceptable to spread Islam. Yeah, maybe only 1% are actively fighting, but the fact that they can rely on moral support from their communities is what makes it 1% instead of 0.1%. For this reason, the Muslims who glorify and respect jihadist are complicit with their crimes.

Not that it matters, their mixers always sucked.


I heard they stole Neidermohammed's camel and pretended to execute it with an AK in the deans' office and it had a heart attack and died.  Those lovable scamps.

Not many mall or school attacks by Catholics, in platoon strength with hundreds of casualties, because the heathen Lutherans have a different view on communion nowadays.

TheShavingofOccam123: For all of those who thought if you kill the head, the body dies...well, welcome to the real world. Killing OBL and most of the Al Qaeda leadership has done nothing to stop the spread of terror. In fact, the terror organizations have become just that--organizations. They mimic the big business entities that have raped natural resources and plundered weath in the Middle East.

Additionally, the global corporate giants and their biatch militaries have shiat on so many people in so many countries, we're never going to put out the flames. Just enjoy watching the fires burn.


I just knew, somehow, it had to be our fault.  Thanks for pointing out the reason why 40 students had to be massacred, clearly originated in the corporate boardrooms of the West.  I'm sure you are quickly rising to the top of this year's list of candidates, to win that most coveted award,  The Legion of Derp and Hurr, with a nice red sash, that reads "Shiat for Brains".
 
2013-09-29 11:57:57 AM

mbillips: Europe and North America went through a similar spasm of violence in the 1970s. led (as in the current case) by young "intellectuals" who had latched onto a utopian philosophy (Communism back then, radical Islam now) that they think can be implemented by violent revolution. They don't have to conspire across national borders; they just subscribe to the same reading list.


Except for it's not "radical Islam" we have to worry about here; we have "citizens militia" groups here in the US trying to instill their paranoid fantasies of everyone wearing a gun and killing anyone who isn't of their particular weird interpretation of Christianity. Radio and TV shysters and charlatans are trying to get people to create their own microcosm society of like-minded individuals and demand the right to walk around everywhere brandishing a firearm.

Blaming crazy attacks on a person's religion is silly. Here in the US, most all of the recent mass shootings have been carried out by Christians, simply because statistically speaking, most people in the US were taken to Christian churches when they were kids. Crazy sometimes overrides the teachings common to all religions of "be good to one another".

While there is no doubt that most all who carry out attacks such as suicide bombings are motivated to give up their lives based on a promise of reward in the afterlife, the people who recruit these individuals and plan and finance these attacks are simply not motivated by religion. They don't hate us for our freedom, they hate us because we're over in their part of the world telling them how to run things, and bribing and cajoling to get things to work out for our advantage to the detriment of the people whose forefathers fought and died for that land.

You want to stop "Islamic terrorism"? Stop farking with countries where Islam is the predominant religion. There is no doubt in my mind that if the US and US-based corporations behaved in this same way to Buddhist countries, a fringe Buddhist element would arise and some Buddhist religious leaders would begin promising things in the afterlife for those who gave their lives in the holy war against the infidels.

Blaming Islam every time there is an attack by crazy people is as silly as blaming Christianity for Eric Rudolph, who claimed he was carrying out God's work. Try this on for size: "If we banned Christianity, fringe lunatics like Eric Rudolph would not be murdering innocent people in the name of God. Christianity is clearly the problem here, as its teachings justify the deadly use of force to protect the innocent unborn children from those who carry out and support abortion."

Much of the poverty stems from Islamists controlling governments.

I'm not sure I can fault the subjective perspective against "the Oriental" coming from a soldier who served during such brutal events as the Rape of Nanking, The Bataan Death March, and the assault on Iwo Jima.  I don't agree with it, but I can see where it might have come from.

Right.  It's not like our President, who happens to be black, came from a state with one of the worst black neighborhood crime problems (Chicago) or anything.  I mean if that was the case, maybe some attention would be paid to mental health, drugs, poverty, and education.

They're not attacking Western corporate interests. They're attacking MUSLIMS in order to attempt to subjugate them under the rule of a particularly screwy brand of Islam, as the Taliban did in Afghanistan. The western world certainly good do more to help, but this is a local fight between two philosophies: the first believes that the post-colonial Muslim world should follow the example of India, and become modern, multicultural societies, and the second believes that these countries should return to a fundamentalist sectarian Caliphate as they were in 750 AD. Western companies are HUGELY invested in places like China and India, and yet there are no worldwide insurgencies coming from those locales.
