Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

Islamist terrorists have killed many innocent civilians, perhaps you missed the threads in this forum. The mosque was happy to jump on the bandwagon when a single person without political support attacked worshipers. Jews supported the mosque, and that's the way the mosque shows gratitude.
What would the reaction be If a church which was attacked by an islamist would host a nazi speaker?

What if we labelled everything we do as the actions of christians, every time we miss a target that had no trial and accidentaly just killed a bunch of people in a hospital, oops.

What if we stick the thread's topic rather than generalize ?
This is not a general "Muslim" thread - A mosque with a history of radicalism got a lot of public support and now shows (again) it is open to radicals.

Feel free to open a thread on "Nazis and the internet", add pictures of cats - I'm sure it will be very popular. But it's not relevant to this thread.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

I‘m just sick of the idea of people trying to generalise islam as an all encompassing label where if the same were applied to our general „judea christian values“ we manage no better in controlling our hateful vile bigots.

Thread hijacking? not sure that i‘m off topic on a thread where some nut job attacked a mosque because we generalise islam

Edit: called him a nut job, but truth is, there‘s plenty of places on the internet that would confirm and validate him

You miss the point: this thread is about a specific mosque. A mosque which supported radical Islam before, and seems to do it now.

Radical Islam has plenty of support in the real world. On the other hand - Which countries will honor the nut job - name streets & schools after him ?

I just think it‘s pretty weird that you‘re holding islam responsible for 1 mosque when a vile nazi is just a google query away. Probably less

But the problems aren't just stemming from that ''one little mosque'' are they? There's been a lot of problems with extremism in British mosques.

Because we're holding people up to standards we son't apply to ourselves, i don't hive a shit how significant you think that mosque is when one of the biggest mouthpieces of the modern world gives voice to the very same opinions you would like to think are exclusive to some other religion.

Edit: you're showing me 1 mosque, i can literraly randomly google anything and show you the hate.

And i'd like to add that we never have to think about us as "ourselves" in the same way as someone who happened to be born where islam is the cultural norm

There's a lot of problems with racist jerks like you too, maybe it's not all one sided, i saw you condone this idiot

Edit: this forum gives voice to your views, how are they different, how can you protect your free speech but try to silence anothers?

I'm not really a racist though. I don't hate on anyone because of their race.

And I never condoned what he did, I think he's a coward. I just tried to explain where someone might get the motivation to conduct such an attack.

Where did I try to silence other free speech?

I completely agree they are entitled to their free speech - yet I can still say exactly what I think about about their message and criticize their hypocrisy. That's how free speech works.
