Extremism needs to be wiped out of Islam

THE World Trade Centre 2001, the Bali bombings 2002, the Australian embassy in Jakarta 2004, the Madrid railway station 2004, the London Underground 2005, the Taj Mahal hotel Mumbai 2008, Charlie Hebdo, the Parramatta police station, the Bataclan in Paris — I could go on, but you get the picture.

And the picture is not that all this is the work of Islamic State. Most of these jihadi attacks preceded IS. They were organised by different groups — al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, Lashkar-e-Taiba in India, Jemaah Islamiah in Indonesia — but they all had one thing in common. Last Friday in the west African country of Mali, it was an affiliate of al-Qaeda that stormed the Radison Hotel shouting Allahu Akbar (God is great) before taking 170 hostages and killing 19.

Nor is the killing entirely indiscriminate. The gunmen holding the hostages in Mali were prepared to release some who could recite verses from the Koran.

    It has to come from within, the best approach is to make life intolerable for all Muslims. Perhaps, then, regular Muslims will get fed up and do something to rid themselves of radical members of their religion.

      The koran is the source of islamic hatred.

        ..and mohammed is the source of the koran, therefore mohammed is the source of islamic hatred.

          But….mo is no longer around.
          We only have the koran and millions of muzlims
          modeling mohammad.

      Extremism is an integral part of pisslam, you wont end it until pisslam is gone. Destroy it completely, when it sprouts again in a few years in a cave somewhere do it again, it will have to be done again and again but eventually it will die completely and forever.

  • Even before 9/11. I remember reading a Canadian security watchlist of banned terrorist organizations. There must have been at least 50 to 100 Muslim organizations listed. But nobody paid attention — until the U.S. was attacked. Problem is it was often the same terrorist leaders bouncing around from one organization to the next — probably to avoid detection. Maybe the same thing happens today — the name of the org might be irrelevant, it’s the common cause.

      …same szchiddt, different arschloches…

    Take all the bullshit and xTian/Jooo-hate out of the Kooran and all that’s left is a measly f***ing pamphlet.

      61% of the koran is about non muziims
