    It's not just Muslims it is any ethnic minority.
    On ITV news this morning there was a report about a horrendous random acid spraying attack on 5 young men leaving one blinded and all with life changing injuries . They described the man they are looking for as having black hair and a black bubble jacket. Never bothered to mention that he was black.
    Dancing on the head of a pin to avoid it.

    The real number is that since 9/11, over 90% of all terror attacks worldwide have been perpetrated by Muslims.
    There is nothing particularly special about Islam that causes people to commit terrorist attacks. For example, in our own back yard...

    That's probably not the best source. Check out the first sentence: "but excluding events in Northern Ireland what is illegally occupied by the United Kingdom." Clearly some barely literate IRA terrorist sympathizer has been messing about with it.

    At some point very strong correlations repeated throughout history must be admitted to be causation.

    The reason is simple, and it is not because of an anti-Moslem agenda on the part of the news media.

    In Europe it is rare in the extreme for Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Sikhs to kill people because of their religion, or to kill in the name of their religion. Therefore newspapers have no reason to report their religion.

    Islam, on the other hand, seems to engender violence on the part of a significant minority of its adherents, who do kill people because of their culture (engendered by Islam) or the religion itself, or kill people in the name of Islam.
    Finally someone on here is talking sense!

    The media is run by leftists, what did you expect?
    The news of the stabbing was also posted in the Guardian. I'd say that's mainstream.

    There's no need to me rude. The guy is just trying to have a civil conversation with you.

    Are you here to intimidate or debate reasonably?

    KKK? Buddhist monks killing Muslims in Myanmar? There's a radical group in every religion, belief, organization etc. Does Buddhism promote violence? No. Does Christianity, Islam, Judaism promote violence? No. These kind of texts can be taken and manipulated into the so called 'violent' texts they are. Who are these done by? Humans.

    Now this matter isn't about religion or ethnicity. There are psycho white Americans killing innocent students at school shootings. There many psychologically impaired people all around the world. This is a matter about their brain function. Not what they 'believe' in.

    remember slavery?
    Which slavery?

    The slave trade that was participated in by black slave-takers who sold their black captives to mostly white traders who took them over the Atlantic?

    Or the Islamic slave trade, which involved captives of all colours being taken by Moslems?

    Or the slavery still going on in Mali, Sudan (where it is endemic), China, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burma, Uzbekistan, Bangladesh, Algeria, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Mauritania, Haiti, Nepal and India (where there are about 15 million children in bonded labour)? Notice the number of countries involved in slavery where the inhabitants are not white.

    Funny eh?

    About 12 million were shipped across the Atlantic, maybe 12-14 million taken by Islamic traders, while there are currently over 20 million people in slavery in the counties I listed.

    Which is the greatest scandal?

    Not read but rather listened to it. And I listened enough to give me true view of whether it promotes violence or not.

    Have you read the Bible? A lot of violence in the Old Testament. So why aren't Christians and Jews killing non-believers?

    If Islamic terrorism doesn’t come from Islamic doctrine (because if it did Jews and Christians would also be at it), where does it come from?

    It's almost like there have been proxy wars fought in the Middle East for the past 100 years and the people there are pretty pissed off at each other and the world at large.
