Lets look at the facts and figures rather than appeals to fear and paranoia, one of the figures quoted in this thread is that 8% of muslims are extremists. I don't agree with that figure but suppose it is correct that would mean that there are over 200,000 muslim extremists in the UK.
According to the UK Government the security services here foiled seven terrorist plots last year, in addition there was a single terrorist incident in London last year where someone was stabbed.
This would suggest that either muslim terrorists are incredibly lazy and unmotivated or the quoted percentage is incredibly exaggerated. I suspect the latter.
Islam is no more peaceful than any other religion, criticizing sharia law is a good thing, criticizing religious ideas is something I do all the time. Should the security services be vigilant for islamic terrorists? Of course, nobody is blind to the very real threat that handful of terrorists pose.
We are saying that muslims in general are not peaceful and not desirable considering their views on our values.
maybe its time they admit that the religion is radical in nature and that gives them a vast network of "non-radicals" who actually help and support their cause.
What I don't do is tar and feather all members of a religion due to the actions of a tiny minority. You aren't criticizing bad ideas, you are arguing that all muslims are either terrorists or sympathizers. I think this sort of black and white thinking (Trump 'politics') is stupid and illogical.
You think I should be ashamed for criticizing Islam and their horrible human rights violating ideas, I think they should be ashamed for their ideas about the world around them. That is what is most dangerous
That isn't what I said at all, I criticize Islam for its theology all the time, what you should be ashamed for is assuming that all muslims (they are people just like you and I) can be lumped in with a very real threat like ISIS. I will never say the religious ideas cant be criticised.
Nobody answered my question, if muslims are either terrorists or sympathizers what does anyone suggest we do? Round them up? After all you can't watch all of them.
RedVIP, you should try reading what I actually said. I don't support any religion.
