Stamp: Terrorists by 8manderz8 Stamp: Terrorists by 8manderz8
Hey everyone.
Sick of hearing ignorant people equating Muslims to terrorists. I know it's a result of the events of 9/11. But there were terrorists before 9/11. There will be terrorists in the future. Stop implying that terrorists are only Islamic.

Case in point: Anders Behring Breivik. The Norwegian guy who killed 77 people and injured upward of 100 others. He is a Christian extremist. He's a terrorist. A Christian terrorist.

Just sayin'.


Edit
Just going to throw this out there: from 1980 to 2005, the FBI Database shows that Islamic-based terrorist attacks on US Soil made up of only 6% of all terrorist attacks. Jewish extremists made up 7% of those. Juuuuusssss sayin!


Edit Edit!
I'll just say this once: saying that I'm defending what terrorists do - ANY terrorists, is pathetic and childish, and you should be ashamed of yourself for being so.

Messages like "I'm afraid of all Muslims" just prove how much people would rather allow their fear to overcome them instead of actually EDUCATING themselves. Yes. Muslim extremists flew planes into the twin towers, pentagon, and into the ground. Yes, thousands of people died. Yes, thousands more have died overseas. I'm not saying that any of these things are good things. And I'm most certainly not defending it. And if you think I am, you're seriously deranged.

The point of this stamp was to point out that we shouldn't fear Muslims as a whole because of the actions of a few. Just the same as you don't fear Christians as a whole because of the crusades, or as you don't fear democrats as a whole because of organizations like PETA and ALF. Clearly you missed that.

I decided to re-make this stamp to make it a little visually appealing less ugly.

pp This analogy isn't strong. Nobody fears Muslims because of things the Muslims of centuries ago did. Nobody fears Muslims because of a few fringe organizations. The number of Muslims extremists and sympathizers to Muslim extremism isn't anywhere as small as we would hope. And it's not just countries like Afghanistan. There is a significant amount of Muslims in 1st world countries who are like this. www.breitbart.com/national-sec…

And yes, "Christian extremists" do exist. Christianity and extremist are kind of opposites, but I suppose many would say the same thing about Islam. Regardless, the number of "Christian extremists" percentage wise to "Christian moderates" is insanely lower than the percentage of Muslim extremists. It's not a strong argument to say "But Christian extremists exist!"

Sure, I don't think we should be afraid of all Muslims, but when 13% of American Muslims say that violence against civilians is often, sometimes or rarely justified to defend Islam, you can't help but feel their uneasiness isn't completely unjustified.

Anyone who takes anything to the extreme can become a terrorist.  Anyone could be a terrorist for any reason.  It all depends on how you interpret the information given to you.

Neither the Bible nor the Qur'an were really meant to be violent, yet on both sides, we have super nice people (I would know... I'm a Catholic Christian, and I was friends with a Muslim Family... some of the nicest people ever... we even celebrated Ramadan with them) and super violent people (i.e.: Al Qaeda, Army Of God). 

Again, it all depends on how one interprets the given information.

That's why statistics can be misleading. Overall numbers of terrorists vs number of terrorists per capita give 2 different results.

Note that I dont hate muslims if they dont hurt me, I just think their religion is retarded. As for muslims hurting me, it happens at times. Because immigration brings in a minority of qualified people who just couldnt find a good job in their country and a HUGE majority of retarded rednecks who just come for our ridiculously generous welfare.
So yeah I know the problem is complex and I also know it's hard to remain completely rational at times.

It wasn't in the name of Atheism. It was murder, not terrorism, and it wasn't an anti-religious attack. Therefore, it's not Atheist Terrorism.

Terrorism is defined as the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims. Simple murder is not that, if he killed them because they were Muslims its a hate crime not terrorism.

There's no such thing as a Christian terrorist.

They say they are Christians, but they disbanded the title after breaking the rules of the faith.

That goes for the ones called Muslims too. They are no longer Muslim after committing their acts of terror.

Do you think God will welcome you to his home after you killed his children in his name? Murder is in the name of the murderer, not God.
