“A hard week for Muslims”

“This past week has been extremely hard for Muslims, especially those living in countries where they are minorities. From Australia to Pakistan to Nigeria, kidnappings, killings, and the blowing up of innocent children were all done by terrorists claiming to be Muslims and to be doing such evil deeds in the name of our religion.”

This is not satire.

  • Anglophone

    Nevertheless, being shouted at on a train to go back to your country just for being Muslim cannot be an experience that is easily shrugged off.

    i will ride with you?? Errrr

    That is a quote below

    Okay, but suppose one said:

    This past week has been extremely hard for Catholics, especially those living in countries where they are minorities. From Australia to Pakistan to Nigeria, kidnappings, killings, and the blowing up of innocent children were all done by terrorists claiming to be Catholics and to be doing such evil deeds in the name of our religion.”

    The obvious response would be: Where is the Pope? Where are the Cardinals?Where are the local priests who will refuse communion to such persons until they repent? It’s no good saying one is a Catholic if one has been excommunicated.

    There seems to be no effective channel for those Muslims who oppose such evil to allow their opposition to be known. Or is there? I’m prepared to believe most oppose it, but if people don;t want their lives run by terrorists, they are going to have to come up with something better than merely claiming that those people don’t really represent Islam. They need to be able to do something to show it.

      The Pope is busy doing interfaith outreach with Muslims. It could well be that he is working with truly peaceful Muslims, but how can one tell?

      • disqus_PwGxBXHn8l

        He may need to ask the people he is working with some hard questions about how much influence they have with the head- and hand-choppers anyway. Is the point that those people are out of control and there is no way within Islam to segregate them? Or what?

      • BillyHW

        The pope is too busy showing the world how much humility he has.

        • DVult

          Praise from people or God’s will. Which is the Pope supposed to pursue I wonder?

        • Laura

          Washing and kissing the feet of muslims…what an example he is setting.

      • Xavier

        And how would he find her?

      • He should look no further than Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who knows damn well how that can turn out.

        Also, Ibn Warraq. He can’t be quoted enough.

  • Frau Katze

    No progress until the Muslims themselves stop the denial and start doing something about their violence-soaked scriptures.

    What are all of these people doing in the name of Islam? Killing and kidnapping innocent civilians, giving us Muslims and our religion Islam the worst reputation that one could ever imagine. Of course, many will say that we cannot judge a whole religion or people on the acts of a few mad and blood thirsty groups. That is certainly true, but nevertheless it tarnishes the religion so much, since there is such a seemingly nonstop stream of violent and hateful acts coming out of the Muslim world this year.

    The writer is more worried about Islam’s reputation than doing something about the problem!

      “The writer is more worried about Islam’s reputation”…there is nothing to do to ‘reform’ Islam, since it is perfect, eternal and complete. Change anything and it loses all three of those.
      The only way to save one’s dignity is to leave this savage Death Cult.

      • ntt1

        true, to be a peacefull muslim you would need to disregard about 1/3 of the bloody book ,wouldn’t that make you apostate and subject to death penalty?

    • TotallyPeeved

      “This year?” How about since day one, you lying pisslamic clump of porcine smegma.

  • BillyHW

    Oh, so this is why people the world over hate muslims.

  • Uncle_Waspy

    November 28, 1963….
    It’s been a hard week for the Oswald family….

    • Xavier

      It’s been tough on pedophiles, too.

      And cannibals.

  • Martin B

    Dig the way he ends his shpiel …”and convince our brothers and sisters that killing and kidnapping innocents is not the way of going about seeking redress for their grievances, no matter how serious they may be”

    No matter how high the pile of dead innocents gets, the last word must always go to the Muzz and their grievances.

    • DVult

      What grievances? Your countries are backwards to the extent that pislam is followed. It’s your fault so F YOU

  • tom_billesley

    A hard week for muslims? Suck it up, muslimeen, there’s more to come. .

  • Dana Garcia

    One should never doubt the deep sensitivity of headchoppers — they all have the souls of poets!

  • Barrington Minge

    You would think that they might start to get the idea…but no, I doubt it.

  • moraywatson

    There is no good brand of totalitarianism, and all muslims are totalitarians. ALL of them.

  • CodexCoder

    And yet, not one Muslim has gone to help the Yazidis, or joined the Peshmurga to fight this “evil”. Why? Because from childhood, they have been instructed in the Quran that Islam will rule the world, and jihad is the method failing conversion or dhimmitude. The only difference between the moderate and the hardcore is that option 2 – dhimmitude, is not allowed.

  • BillyHW

    They are kindly editing posts at the article link to scrub them of any truth about Islam.

    • Xavier

      Thank you for that information. Now the fun begins.

    • Well, it’s Saudi-based, so I guess you can’t blame them for being careful.

  • Xavier

    The fact that the author saw the need to write this defensive article is itself proof that Islam is responsible for the violence of the past week.

    I blame the Beatles; they wrote the song, someone has to sing it.
