  • It IS about religion. America just isn't ready to face it yet. The enemy has delcared a religious war against us. We have no hope of winning until we accept that.

  • I've been saying this all along. It is not the Islamic religious way to behave the way the extremist do. So by persecuting the all we are doing is making things worse. We are causing more destruction than good/ peace.

  • There is no peace with the extremists. That is the whole point. How do we know which on is which? The prisons are full of innocent people, just ask the inmates

  • It is about religion. When a "group" of people claim it is their religious reason to murder the unbelievers. It is about religion. Read the Qu'ran! The extremist take this to heart. It would be like a Christian extremist who followed the old testament and went around stoning unwed mothers.

    Qur'an (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

    Qur'an (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority".

    Not true because they are twisting and distorting there religion. It is not the true religion it is words of a nut job.

  • So I guess satanism isn't a religion because it is a bunch of whack jobs? So to distort a religion, worship a god, and even have mosques dedicated to extremists isn't a form of religion at all? Just because they follow the not so nice parts of the Quran, twists it, has a very large group of followers is not possible to categorized it as a religion?

  • What I am trying to say is that Islamic extremism is a religion all of its own. Just like how people categorize polygamy as a religion all of its own even though they read and follow the Christian bible.

  • It is about how Extremists view/interpret the religion. Not necessarily the entire religious community. jmo.
