    Islam really IS The Religion of Peace.

    If your idea of "peace" means total surrender and submission. Then, yes, it is.

    Just like Islam doesn't allow suicide or the murder of innocents. How many times have you heard that one? Well, it's true. Islam does not allow suicide or the murder of innocents. Killing yourself in defense of Islam is not suicide. It's the highest honor any Muslim can achieve. Murder of innocents? Well, then we have to define who is "innocent". There is no such thing as an innocent Jew. So scratch them. Us Americans? Nope. Scratch us, too.

    The reason Muslim terrorists can kill at will is because their victims are not their problem. Muslims are taught that God will sort it all out. Only God can judge, so if a Muslim kills, it's up to God to decide who is innocent and who isn't. If a Muslim kills another Muslim, then their victim, too, is considered a martyr and will be rewarded. If their victim isn't a Muslim, then God will sort that out, too. It's not their problem to worry about it.

    I'm guessing the "pro-life" movement isn't too popular in Muslim countries...

    :D

    An artist makes a cartoon of a Muslim with a bomb in his turban. Muslims cry “foul” and we criticize the Muslims and ask them to tolerate free speech. Yet, don’t you remember the public outcry that went out when the movie The Last Temptation of Christ was released? In fact, a French Catholic fundamentalist group launched molotov cocktails inside a theater to protest against the film projection.

    Also consider the shouts of outrage following the movie Dogma. There was more than picketing. Death threats were actually made against its director producers.

    I can only hope that those who call for Muslims to be tolerant of satire and criticism toward Islam are not the same people who cry, “foul” when people display satire and criticism of Christianity.

    If these people are the same and if they are Christians, I wish that they would pay more attention to the “Sermon on the Mount”. As their Bible says, Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.

    Do you really believe that? Do you really not see any difference?

    First of all, The Last Temptation Of Christ was released 18 years ago. http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0095497/. Dogma was 7 years ago http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0120655/. How many people have Muslims killed today? Do you even know how many they've killed today alone? How about yesterday, and the day before that and the day before that?

    Second of all, people who launch molotov cocktails are criminals and get arrested. People who make death threats are arrested. Oh, unless they're Muslims, then they get an apology.

    Gimme a fucking break.

    nt250 and Eightball –

    You are worse than Pale Rider and OCA. Read the poorly constructed question in the first post of this thread and think. It basically asks why Muslims go out with “rage in the streets” when the folks are criticized or poked fun at. The murderous violence was not in the discussion – unless cp meant that the Muslims recently committed murders because people criticized Islam (as in those comics).

    Yet, it was not long ago when Christians did torture and kill those who would not conform to their views on Christianity. Consider the Spanish Inquisition and the Salem Witch Trials as just a couple of classic examples.

    I was explaining examples of hypocrisy with respect to freedom of speech and intolerance to criticism. Militant Muslims and Christian extremists are not very different with respect to it. It is all a matter of time and degrees.

    I don’t know exactly how many people Muslims killed today, yesterday, or the day before that. That is not the topic of this post. Do you how many people that Christians have killed today, yesterday, or the day before that?

    Please stop the silly erroneous hype and hyperbole. People, who commit crimes, including Muslims who commit crimes, get arrested. It may sound amazing but it is true. Muslims who commit crime sometimes even go to jail.

    No hope. No hope at all.
