Why does the irreligious left of this country tell me that I ... "need to u-n-d-e-r-s-t-a-n-d" Islam ?

What is there to understand about brutally stoning a 17-year old girl to death (took 30 minutes to murder her) because she had a relationship with a boy from the wrong sect of her religion ?

Islam is barbaric

Christianity has been reformed ... several times. It has evolved

Islam is entrenched in the 7th century

Because the phrase "know your enemy" is just as true today as it was an eon ago when it was coined.
Because ignorance is dangerous.
Because why not? Why be an ignorant person? Your opinion is worth nothing if you don't know what you're talking about. That's why.

Fair enough.

OK, now I'm not ignorant. I have "learned" that a certain sect of Islam insists upon stoning girls to death for religious transgressions

Now what ?

What's your point. Acts of savagery occur everyday all over the world. In another thread I've been discussing a case of two assumedly Christian (raised at least) males who brutally beat a boy to death because they learned he was gay--or for $20 and a pair of sneakers. Now the hatred and fear of homosexuality in our culture is directly tied to Judeo-Christian mores. Does this act of barbarity preclude me from continuing to learn about Judaism and Christianity? I think not. This act of savagery perpetrated by a small minority of Christian adherents does not justify an indictment on the Christian faith. It just means there are savages in every society. The same goes for Islam. I'm sure you'd be hardpressed to find an American Muslim who would agree with stoning someone for a religious transgression.

Have you ever read the Koran? Maybe you should so that you can know for sure if it is Islam that is flawed or if it is dumbass hillbilly arabs that are flawed.

I'm not a christian but I dispise fags. So where do I fit in?

If your going to read the koran, you also need to read the hadaith (koran part 2). An american muslim believes the same as an arab muslim. They just know they can't act on their religious beliefs here. They will if they think they can get away with it. (see honor killings)

If you study it and get to know the "religion" you see what an evil, hateful, savage ideaology it really is.There is no comparison between a fundimentalist christian and a fundimentalist muslim.

1. The libs who want us to understand Islam don't consider Islam a threat.
2. The savagery is consistent with the teachings of Islam and justified by Islamic law, not so with the teachings of Christianity or laws based on Christianity.

It's just right wing hate propoganda. It's so sad that people are so bigoted and uneducated to believe this crap. Have you ever known a Muslim? You guys are so blinded by ignorance. :(

Fair points, but when we are called upon to "understand" anything, i.e. Islam, they don't really mean "be aware of its history, nuances and figures," they mean "accept it without criticism."

And, once properly defined, I would side with FH --- I don't need to "understand" Islam. It can bugger off.

It's obvious you know nothing about the people that want to kill you. I have multiple posts about islam on this board, go find them. I get tired of repeating myself to liberala that won't bother reading or understanding.

Your ignorance is typical. islam is a theocratic ideology that is out to rule the world. It does not preach tolerance and acceptance. It preaches conquest and submission. Women are subhuman and second class citizens in islam.

Yes I have known muslims. They were either non-practicing or they were completely untrustworthy. Lying and deciet are a part of the religion. Totally acceptable in their view.

Similar acts of atrocity are also done in India, Thailand, China, and a variety of other Asian countries. In fact they may even be done in some African civilizations.
Why arenít right-wingers accusing all black people as being psycho paths willing to commit genocide in Darfur?

Ann Coulter and the other right-wing dumbasses would NEVER generalize all black people doing bad things if only a small percentage of them were.

What in THE hell are you talking about ? Are you just ignorant ? Or angry and stupid ?

Right-wingers accuse the Islamic Janjaweed murder squads of the genocide in Africa ... NOT "all black people". Christians are the target, and they have been slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands.

It is the United Nations ! that sits on its hands and clucks about the "violence" in Darfur. They can't even bring themselves to call it GENOCIDE ... because it is aimed at CHRISTIAN Africans

I don't know about that. I seem to remember everyone freaking out about the A-rabs in the late 70's early 80's. Is that the same thing. I mean, they're not really black, but they're all Lebanese, right? I just can't tell them apart.

You need to start reading for more detail my friend.
Not once did I ever claim that right-wingers are accusing all black people of committing the genocide. I said that they would never get caught making that generalization.
And yes, it is the murder squads committing the genocide. Right-wingers properly define that group of "bad people".
But why do you think its ok to generalize Islam as being nothing but evil killers??? None of you can ever refer to the bad minority of them as just the "Jihadists" or "the small fraction of radical Muslims".
Instead, you say the most disgusting, derogatory, and just plain fucking stupid shit about ALL Muslims by referring to Islam in general.

They put themselves on the same level as the ignorant, blindly stupid Muslims who think if they martre themselves they will get 72 virgins. These prejiduced racist Americans posting here are as blindly stupid and ignorant as those terrorists. Thankfully the majority of Muslims and the majority of Americans are not as stupid and full of hate as the terrorist and the bigots on this board.

Many of these get their kicks from watching genuine Americans give their blood, guts and lives to the only ideologies they know. Pretty much self survival or death outright. These chickenshits wouldn't cross the street to help you or any other American or even a neighbor. I could talk for months, pages or reels of tape and it probably wouldn't matter.

But, in the event that it might, I suggest you keep it up and I promise I will do the same.

You mistakenly implied that "black people" are responsible for the psychopathic genocide in Darfur, as you clumsily framed your paint-by-numbers picture of "right-weengers"

I was hoping to E-D-U-C-A-T-E you about WHO is perpetrating this genocide. IT IS Islamic Janjaweed Terrorists. They might be
'Mocha', or 'Cafe-au-lait' colored ... who knows ? But they ARE Muslims. Muslims murdering Christian Africans.

Us right-weengers are not the least bit confused about WHOM is MURDERING WHOM. No generalizations are needed. It is Islam. Worldwide. Islamic Terrorists in the Middle East, London, Spain, Indonesia, Phillipines, United States, Africa ...

About the only people that Islam isn't responsible for MURDERING are those nice Tibetan Monks ... We have China to thank for that.
