What is the definition of word ''terrorism'', ''terrorist''? Why don't you/we use simple non-hypocritical word ''enemy''.

#2 I admit the borders between terrorism and guerrilla warfare are a bit blurry. You could say that it is a terrorist act, when its main objective is to instill fear as a way to further your political/religious motives. The way the acts of violence counted in this video are classified as terror may be slightly biased from a western point of view, I give you that. But you cannot compare strategical drone strikes with civilian casualties to indiscriminate massacres with the sole objective to cause pain and misery. Therefore "Terrorist" and "Enemy" are not terms that are interchangeable and purely a matter of perspective.

If you join all the dots together from the very first attack until the most resent you find it's a pointless thing to do. :S

From the map it's clear to see that Islam has nothing to do with it.

#5 : RADICALISM not Islam. There are billions of muslims all around the world that leave in peace. I've talked with peacefull muslims in my country and they don't recognize terrorists as TRUE muslims. Sir, you deserve my downvote. Not for what you are, but for what you've said.

Am i the only one hearing/seeing for the first time the hudge ammont of bombing in india ??

Instead of linking the bombing to a particular religion, I link it to the places that are those most attacked by capitalism, pretending to bring a certain way of life when actually imposing a favourable government (to get control on the natural resources). Terrorism might be the last resort of oppressed people.
Terrorism might be the nuke of the poor.

down-vote is foreseeable :)

Ok, so, looks like the downvote posse is out for blood :

#10 : "Stereotypes" => The oxford dictionnary says :

"A widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing". What is interesting here is the word "oversimplified". And it's EXACTLY what I was pointing out. Saying that "muslims/islam = terrorists" is OVERSIMPLIFIED.

Some stereotypes are funny, like "French eat frogs" or "French don't take showers" or "Americans are trigger happy rednecks" and I can laugh like anyone else at them. But some stereotypes are really dangerous like "muslims are terrorists" or "jews want to screw all goyims" (we all saw what the last one led us to during WWII).

#15 : So ? Nazis have been defeated and terrorists must be defeated as well. What is your point exactly ?

The Quran has 109 verses in it indicating to kill or maim those that are not believers of Islam. It calls muslims that don't engage in this practice "hypocrites". There are many moderate muslim's out there that would never strap a bomb to themselves but, would not take issue with their radical "brother" doing it. Also... What happens when a muslim decides they need to take their faith more seriously and start doing more like what the Quran says?

I don't care how the liberal left spins it. Islam is not a "religion of peace".

#19 : Yeah, right ! Read, learn, educate yourself : http://www.alternet.org/30-most-violent-exhortations-bible-torah-and-quran (an example among sooooo many)

In this regard there are NO RELIGION OF PEACE WHATSOEVER (Bible, Quran, Torah, all the same). So, what now ? Everyone should kill everyone ? Is that the world you are advocating for ?

Would you take issue if a radical G.I. started killing muslims without distinction ?
What happens if someday you decide that "enough is enough" and start to take your "Islam is not a religion of peace" more seriously ?

I don't care how bloodthirsty dense haters spins it. When you want war the first thing to do is to declare that your so called ennemy doesn't want peace. If you want to hang your dog you give him a bad name first.

With your words, you are just like them, radicals...

One thing we learn from history is that no one learns from history, you are just another proof of that. I won't even downvote you, karma will take care of this for me.

Terrorists should be killed, it's not a matter of religion. For Christ sake >:)

#20 you really need to take a chill pill mate ;) I don't know what your facts are based on, but judging by the video... well, some things are more than obvious ;)

Religion is the root of all evil on Earth. Period. Don't tell me there's no link between the terrorist attacks and religion in that certain area, because the internet is full of propaganda videos of the Terrorist groups, and they all yell "Allah Akbar" while doing it. most recent example: the terrorist attacks in France. I even have friends that witnessed some of the attacks, and they heard "Allah Akbar". No linkage, huh?

Still, religion should not be mistaken with faith.
Religion: a group of people that believe in something in a specific way. (or more like politics today)
Faith: it's your personal living and relation with the God/Entity you are believing in.

I think there is a fine line between religious persons and faithful persons. ;) I do respect someone's faith and his view on life, even if it's different than mine, but I do not respect and tolerate when someone forces me to accept their way (which is the main cause of the majority of the terrorist attacks in this video: killing others that believe different, killing the "infidels";)

It's funny that for example, the Charlie Hebdo thingy made fun of other religions as well in their publications (especially of catholic christians), but guess who decided to blow him up... I dont care what bad other religions did in the past, we're talking about 2016 here and there are still people who kill in the name of religion. The past was very different, people were brainwashed and did not have access to information like we do today. We live in modern times now, where people think way different than they did hundreds of years ago, and where wars and killing for religion is "so last year", but it seems some cant get over it.

Oh and BTW, you actually did downvote #19 ;)
Picture of kirkelicious44 achievements

#19 ever read through the bible? It also promotes genocide of nonbelieving tribes and other unspeakable horrible crimes. True, Islam is not a religion of peace, but it is in itself not more a religion of hate than other monotheistic religions. The problem is, that some insane people interpret the quran literally, something the other religions have left behind themselves since the enlightenment. The vast majority of Muslims wants to live peacefully. In many Muslim majority countries women have equal rights. The people that are killed by religious fanatics are mainly members of the Muslim majority that has outgrown the early medieval belief system, and who are terrorized by the fanatic fringe of Islam.

The problem with Islam is that the number of Westborough-Baptist-Church, Anders-Breivik-equivalent Nutjobs is currently staggeringly higher than in other religions. But you cannot generalize that to more than a billion people.

#21 the obvious things you see in this video are not obvious. You clearly confuse you point of view with obviousness. That's obvious.

And please don't talk about the charlie thingy like it's a clear and solved matter. It is not.
Same goes with the november attacks.

As you said, we are in 2016, and no one can claim who's really responsible. Only time, a long time, might reveal the truth. Or maybe some sheeps following blindly the "official" version of the government, who is, by the way, using those attacks to justify, unconstitutional measures for it's own perpetuity.

I bet you think a skyscraper can collapse in its own footprint with one blow at the top :) ahahahhahahahaha

#22 not defending Christians, but did YOU even read the bible? I'm surprised by the high number of people that dont know the difference between the old and the new testament. Long story short, in kiddies words, the old testament shows how life was before Jesus came on earth, and in the new one is how Jesus showed them the right way to live, because how they did it before it was wrong. Many people accuse Christians because of the weird verses in the old testament, the old testament is there just to show how NOT to live today :) thats why it is recommended that if you read the Bible, to begin with the new testament :)

#25, Not really, no. I was just stating my opinion. It's silly how easily people get offended nowadays. For example, I'm Christian/Agnostic. People talk a lot of crap about Christianity, but I never felt offended. When I was a kid I was highly discriminated because of my religion, I was beaten, I was abused, I was spit on my face, beaten with eggs, got run over with bicycles, I was being called names, I had very few friends, the door of my home was all written with names and hit with eggs, I was forced to do humiliating things or else I got beaten, and after all I was just a hopeless kid, but I never victimized myself, even though I never did something do deserve that :) Today it's like a stupid trend to feel offended and to victimize yourself even from the smallest things. That's why I say religion is the root to all evil ;)
Picture of kirkelicious44 achievements

+1 27. kirkelicious commented 5 years ago

#24 I've read it several times. And yes, I agree that the NT is a step forward and promotes less hatred than the OT or the Quran and therefore is a better update of the ancient texts. Your explanation in kiddies words does not really hold water. Plenty of nasty content of the OT remains untouched and nearly all religious christians do draw meaning from the OT. They mainly pick and choose the stuff that does not contradict the values of the society they live in, normal Muslims do the same. Many christians prove that it is possible to interpret the OT literally, though.
For that reason i promote caution of generalizing too much. Evil people can justify their deeds with all religions, as well as good people can be motivated by every scripture.
By the way, when is stew ready?

#26 you really need to read again.
I didn't get offended at all, again you turn things your way, seems your not able to hold a thread.
And saying that religion is the root of all evil is such an immature position, I've been there, I don't blame you (too much) but wish you to grow up a little more. For a start have a look at what a society becomes when ripped out of spirituality. Like placing man as god, the "human rights" way, is happening in the west now, look where it's leading us -> all pushing to create the same people everywhere, no roots and only consuming.

#21 : Few pointers. I'm a male, 39 years old, faithfull but not religious, not even baptised. A friend of mine got shot in November attacks but survived (stayed in hospital for 3 weeks though). Therefore a little "edgy" on all this Terrorist thing. BUT, I also have numerous Muslims friends who are well fitted in my country/society (working, paying taxes, living a "well understood" religion for some or, like me, faithful but not religious) and they start to be bullied by Secularity integrits. As always, to judge you need to understand and by reading your personnal history I can understand your pov about "religion". Hence my personnal pointers in return. As #29 said a society without religion is a society without reference point, without roots. IT IS VERY VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT (specially if, like me, you are not a religious person). Off course there are dumb ass loosers everywhere doing shit in the name of God but if they call them "religious" they are way way off the actual topic about spirituality. They are our nemesis => religious but not spiritual. Bloody terrorist (so dumb that Secret Services can manipulate them).

Oh and BTW I called my mouse "karma" ( :x ) Thank you for your "business confidentiality" :P

#29 : You nailed it. And YES #1 was really number 1 post. It all drifted away, and I am also responsible for that.

RELIGION IS LIKE SCIENCE : It can lead to nuclear weapons as well as curing cancer. It is just a matter of use and understanding.

Saying that religion is the root of all evil on earth is incorrect in my world. And rather radical too. Greediness, selfishness, power over others, corruption is the root of all Evil on Earth , not religion. "Period"... :x

#16 My point was @ #15 is doesn't matter how many are peaceful, the peaceful ones get overrun by the nut jobs. I continue to be amazed at how small of a number of lunatics it takes to create chaos and control the masses. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't their population one of or the fastest growing in the world and they are expanding around the globe like cockroaches. Most of the areas where they have settled and become a high enough percentage, the nut jobs move in under cover and make it a shit hole (including their neighborhoods in France). I have several friends and co-workers that are Muslim, very nice people, but when the the time comes when they will be forced to take a side, I've got a bad feeling of which side they'll take. I hope I'm wrong.

Last point, if the Christians were acting like this in 2016, they'd be chastised by the entire world, but today we are told, "it's just the wackos, it's not all Muslims" don't judge. BS

Last last point, :D for all those above chastising religion as the most evil, governments have eclipsed religions long ago (though they do often use religion).

I don't fully agree on the terms you used in your previous points but I don't fully disagree neither. Let's say that if lunatics are growing so fast they need money and we can ask ourselves where they get their money/weapons from...
Governments use Religions as a lever to reach their goals. It is so easy to use it for evil ends. Phew... I was starting to get tired here... Finally some sense...

#38 A little snotr history, the first video may have been one of the earliest mentions of squirrel stew, the second one is the video where it was kinda inofficially celebrated.

In all the comments I didn't see anyone offer up a single example of "radical " Christians blowing themselves or others up to further the goals of their belief system. Not even any examples of Christians cutting off the heads of anyone who insults Jesus.
Also no marches by the "peaceful " Muslims to protest the terrorist activities or the radical Muslims. Why is that? Does their silence indicate their condoning of terrorist activities? I wonder.
