Myanmar’s Buddhist terrorism problem

Hindu Terror Does Exist, They Indulge Only In Violence These Days: Kamal Haasan

No religion has a copyright on violence.
People will always seek to legitimize their supremacy over others by pretending their beliefs as the will of some god or another.

What's scarier are the people who actually believe it.

As someone who actually lives on the East Coast, and who spent the entirety of 9/11 under Code Triage, I can assure you...we weren't nearly as scared as folks who were much farther afield.
It was interesting to watch as the talking heads who made bank off the notion that Coastal Elites weren't really American did a complete 180 after the attacks.

We weren't really all that scared after the Marathon Bombing either.
Big Papi said it best.

The issue, from where I'm standing, is that prior to that day in September, most of America was very happy to turn a blind eye to the dumpster fire that was/is American Foreign Policy. And then the towers fell, and folks were disillusioned and confused, and it's easy to turn those kinds of emotions into anger. And what you get then is Homeland Security.

Again though... I'm talking about statistically is there any other religion currently that rivals Islamic terrorism in terms of their numbers of violence and their frequency? The biggest terrorist attacks are dominated by Islamic extremism. ...Year (2018), before that year (2017), before that year(2016), before that year (2015), before that year(Early 2014 and Late 2014)...

Here in the United States and other Western countries, they are so politically correct to accommodate Islamic beliefs, and bend over backwards to not offend, but in nearly all Muslim-majority countries, they are the most intolerable places for people (lack of freedom of speech, lack of freedom of the press, religious minority persecution, retaliation against apostasy, lack of women's rights, lack of LGBT rights) which have harsh repercussions if they challenge their societal norms, with even corporal or capital punishment. Apparently there's cumulative hypocrisy and a lack of self-reflection when the Islamic population as a whole demands the rest the world's population to be tolerant of their beliefs, but yet they can remain the most brutally intolerant and retaliatory toward others' lifestyles within their own Muslim-majority countries.



It's funny how the left brings up the topic of "moderate Muslims" as a counterpoint of not all Muslims engaging in terror, but how politically "moderate" are Muslims in general compared to the rest of the world?

I do have a kid that I raised thanks.

And family in New York

And family who was a flight attendant who regularly flew out of Boston who we couldn’t find that day.

And I’ve lived in rough neighborhoods.

I still am not scared and if today is my day to die I’m ok. I don’t fear death anymore. And I don’t fear people who look or believe differently than I do.

I’ve had and have neighbors of all races, colors, beliefs, and backgrounds. Not many jerks among them. All super nice people who want to live peacefully. I can’t judge those people based on what some deranged idiots do.

If you are afraid of terrorists every day, the 9/11 guys won in your world. Period full stop. If you think all Muslims are out to get you, you are following their script perfectly and they won over you.

If you didn’t let the fear overtake you and live your life happily and peacefully, you won.

Hey can you transcribe those videos for me? I know the people who make them earn money for every click, and I'd rather not subsidize their bigotry.

I'll wait.

Brown people are scary and any religion that isn't Mainstream American Christianity is out to get you.

Guess that means I'm still pretty scary and must be out to get people too. I mean, all that nekkid dancing in the woods under a full moon, circle-drumming, and the usual "cakes and ale"(I actually prefer mead or wine) on sabbat days, meditating , and burning candles and incense must be SUPER E-vil, right? But, I guess anything different MUST be bad. Says so right in the manual.....

Even if in Europe you're statistically more likely to die from a terrorist attack committed by a radical Muslim than by a fundamentalist of any other religion let's keep in mind that there's about billion Muslims in the world and most don't go around committing terror attacks. I understand Refractive Reflections' point, but literally anyone of any nationality, religion, wtv. can be a potential danger to you, so it's best not to just focus on a single one. When I walk around in my city occasionally I see shady people: juvenile delinquents, alcoholics, junkies, etc. And they come in all shapes and colours. White, black, gypsy, etc.
