- Whether you like it or not Islam is getting more and more violent
Why didn't YOU stop it?
Whether you like it or not American police/army troops are getting more and more violent.
You've seen/heard these before havent you?
Americans love pointing, but you guys are one of the fucked countries in the world.
You guys fucked so many things up everywhere, not only middle east, but also EUROPE and AFRICA, thats why Chine is the nr.1 world leader and aint fucking with you.
Better luck next time mate I'm not even American and If you could stop going out of your way to shift the focus on other things that'd be just great, thanks pumpkin!
Hmmm i just pointed americans out because they are the reason we have these attacks, they created the whole anti muslim stance in the media and "every muslim is a terrorist"
Reason why we have this attacks is because there is a very powerful minority in Islam that believes, truly believes, that rule of Allah should be everywhere and those that disagree should be killed.
Europe has a long standing culture of tolerance and openness, and yet there is a growing intolerance toward Islamic immigrants that simply wasn't there 20 years ago.
Why? Because 20 years ago Islamic immigrants were like all other immigrants. Hard working, assimilating and friendly.
Now? Most of them still are. But minority of them is not. They walk around saying they don't recognize the laws that don't come from Allah, they demand shariah laws, they are agressive and dangerous.
If one out of ten of a group of people is likely to attack or kill me, I don't want much to do with entire group.
Its not americans who form sharia police groups in Germany
Its not americans who organized rape gang for white non muslim women in australia with excuse that all non islamic women are whores
And then be publicly defended by a cleric saying its girl's fault
And last of all, it wasn't Americans who walked into a satire newspapers and killed people for doing their job.
Yeah, people are aware that the radical islamists are a minority. But their actions are all too often defended by the majority, saying things like "I condemn the attacks BUT..." and minority is large enough to scare the shit out of people.
The funny thing is, it's actually Americas fault.
No its really not.
Extremization of Islam started in early 20th century, after fall of Otoman empire when Muslim broterhood was funded with goals of pure islamic rule and reestablishement of a caliphate.
Islamic countries were actually fairly moderate at the time, but teachings of Hassan al-Banna, and his combination of socialism and absolute islamic law found fertile ground in the growing number of poor and displaced, and also with religious scholars.
Ideology is summed up in their motto:
"God is our objective; the Qur'an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of God is our wish."
America's and in early 20th century british interventions didn't HELP, but driving force comes from inside, not outside.
You ask any number of people about Iran or any number of places and they will swear they've been barbarians are long as the world has orbitted the sun, but it's not the case at all. We've frighteningly short sight.
I don't think so, I mean yes they planted the seeds but it wasn't until 1973 I think after American intervention that it really turned into what we know it to be today. And even still, that is in a minority of Islamic countries.
As early as 1948 Egypt's government arrested and made Muslim Brotherhood illegal because of planing of an armed takeover and forced installing of Islamic rule in Egypt.
Among plans was forced conversion of all Coptic egyptians.
Khomeini called on his followers to overthrow government of Iran as early as 1960ies. Iranian revolution was not an islamic revolution in response to something USA did, it was a civil revolution started by Islamic students demanding more democratic government that grew and got co-opted by the islamics. Similar what they tried to do in Egypt just few years ago.
Radicalization of Islam is internal, long growing movement. They gain recruits from western interventions, but saying its america's fault is just wrong.
Again, I don't think so.
How is it possible to have an entire race of peaceful people all over the world suddenly turn violen within the decade of American intervention?
Iran had a democratic government until the Prime Minister nationalized the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company so the UK and USA backed a coup which made the Shah a dictator.
That was done mainly by the British, so again blaming Americans is stupid.
Not to mention that Iran wasn't exactly heart of tolerance during Mosaddegh's rule. Mosaddegh's main ally in the political arena was Ayatollah Kashani, whom he made the speaker of the House. Kashani while not a Khomeini-like radical was a proponent of a socialist-islamic rule.
Was overthrow of Iranian government an horrible, idiotic thing? Yes, absolutely, and there is a very good chance that if it had not happened Khomeini would not have gained power as he has.
But chance is not certainty. Khomeini was fairly extreme in his views even before, and his rise to prominence was meteoric. Kashani was fairly moderate and democratic government could have worked with him. with Khomeini? Probably not.
And lets look at Turkey today. Long secular and anti-radical is slowly being islamized into a type of islamic state that it has not been since before last Ottoman sat on the throne. Again, internal change backed by Muslim brotherhood.
Wow, didn't know Boko Haram killed 100 people the day after the Paris attack. Kind of weird how we are condemning two men who killed 12 people more than the same kind of idiots killing that in tenfold. Could've at least given a small notice in a couple of news papers.
I'm going to cite this excerpt from a poem by the Norwegian poet Øverland written in 1936 when the Nazis started their persecution of "unwanted people".
You oughn’t abide, sitting calm in your home
Saying: Dismal it is, poor they are, and alone
You cannot permit it! You dare not, at all.
Accepting that outrage on all else may fall!
I cry with the final gasps of my breath:
You dare not repose, nor stand and forget
And yet, people do not care about other people they don't have any relation to in other countries. When it happens on the doorstep of the west on the other hand we're all outraged while "a million" people die every day from extremism in other countries.
Stalins words have never been truer:
"One death is a tragedy; A million is a statistic"
That is real fucked up, but the whole world is fucked up, there is no way of talking this right.
But the funny racist newspaper comics aint helping.
They weren't racist.
Charlie was a satire newspapers. They attacked left, right, christianity, media, politicians, famous people etc. They satirized everything, in an tradition of French Satire that goes as far as the First republic in 18th century.
Calling them racist just because they didn't pull any punches on Islam, when they pulled no punches anywhere else, is just ignorant and stupid.
- There were probably plenty of peaceful Germans in 1939 too but…
