Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

Quote:
Or "accidentally on purpose" planted a suggestion?

Ironically, we can see the fine line that members of the Islamic community tread when such things happen. Anything that anyone has said in the past is dissected in minute detail. The media misinterprets, the Twitterati get their rage on.
Planted a seed? Loads of people have been saying this for ages. Hell, I even said so after the Manchester bombing. This isn't planting a seed, anyone could see it coming.

Isnt that what you said about the Borussia Dortmund bombing? I thought we already established that "very clearly" depends very much on the media you consume. For the ones with the big letters, the world tends to be simple and clear...


And an unrelated question: Why is nearly the entire thread about Muslims and what they are or are not? Shouldn't it be about the white supremacist who carried out the attack?
I said the Dortmund Bombing looked like a fire cracker. Still stand by that.

So this is all the unfortunate stuff, not the fact that a person has died and people have been injured and attacked?
What's unfortunate is that people believe religious claptrap and go out and kill people over it. They've been doing it for centuries. Nothing's going to change until all religions are banned.

And yet another attack, this time in the States

which may also be Islamophobic in nature.

We're certainly not.

For that matter, most so-called Christians are not, either.

Certainly not but we should be careful not to misconstrue facts and learn to dissect tabloid reportings from what had actually occurred. You mentioned that one person was killed. The person was already dead and therefore, your statement may fuel further anger to somebody ignorant...and what we'll end up with is an unfortunate cascade of events where different communities plow an assortment of vehicles into undeserving innocent bystanders who just want to eat, live, pray and in general go on with their lives.
So a medical professional had declared this person dead before this guy decided to drive a van over him?

No, some idiotic tabloid artist gets paid to overstate facts without the proper authorities making an official statement.

So one possible death (and 10 injured) vs 29 dead (and 177 injured) for Manchester + Borough.

Just so we don't lose focus Grenfell currently at 79 and 74 respectively.

Seen unconfirmed reports that the attacker is an expat Jew from the US called Arthur Arkman. Popcorn on standby if verified.

Medea Fleecestealer, it is intolerant bigots like yourself who cannot expand their minds to accomodate any worldview other than their own who are responsible for the very attacks you are complaining about.

organised religion should be banned until the real god pops down and tells us which one he endorses.

Re: And so it begins, mosque attacked in London

Thanks for catching the typo dodgyken. Corrected. But typo or not, the fact remains. A religion is simply a worldview, and everyone has their own. Unless one learns to accept that other people experience the world differently to them, one cannot appreciate what a gift that is.
