I'm afraid they are


They are just saying that to get support!! Seriously Remember when the Kidnappers of the 2 French guys, they first had one demand which was that they would allow all the Muslim women to wear the"hegab" in france. But the next day they changed their demands into something for themselves. so they are just saying we are doing this in the name of islam as a cover up to what they really want.

Well sure, each group is going to have differing agendas etc, but over all they are doing this to further (as they see is ) Islam. I can understand were your coming from, your don't like the idea of your religion being though of as committing such acts, and no one here believes that the average Muslim would do this. However, there are violent elements of the Islamic culture that do commit such acts. And some will indeed be don't it for their own goals, like gaining power etc, but the bulk will be doing it because they believe it to be the act of Islam. Doesn't mean that it is Islamic teaching, just that they see it as such. Its the only way to explain why all international terrorists today are Islamic.

No it is because theyu lack islamic teachings and if they think terroism is the only way to get what they want then they don't know the first thing about islam.

That sounds like a good idea. thumbsup.gif

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.
