    and why should people who don't believe in their god be told that they are wrong five times a day
    I'm not saying it's wrong for them to pray 5 times a day. There's nothing wrong with that and they are more than welcome to. But the whole country shouldn't have to listen to call out prayers 5 times a day everyday when the majority aren't Muslim. If we did that, we would have to have call out prayers or something similar for every religion to make it fair

    Did you miss the part where I said "who indirectly supports terrorism without even knowing it"?

    You, thinking that Islam is a violent religion, is in agreement with all Islamist militant groups - and your aggressive hatred for Islam contributes towards Muslims feeling segregated and therefore becoming radicalised. You support terrorism indirectly.

    It's funny you criticise him for being a fascist, when in reality the Qu'ran and the Hadiths support values and ideas that are even more ultra-conservative and extreme-right than Mussolini's. The cognitive dissonance of people who defend Islam in the name of liberalism is incredible. It's like defending Stalinism in the name of libertarianism.
    On the other hand, it's peculiar how those most against Islam are those most whose beliefs are most ideologically similar

    and at the last one
    I'm off down the pub for a bacon butty and a beer as that's better than wasting your time praying (2 times)

    Neither are 1.6 billion Muslims

    but apparently their ideological connection makes them personally responsible for the actions of hateful people who have no care for the rest of Muslims.

    Not a chance in hell. See, this is one of the various reasons why people dislike Islam: it demands special treatment in non-Muslim countries. Imagine if the same was asked about Christianity in the Middle East, despite their not-insignificant population you'd be lucky not to be arrested for even suggesting the idea!

    Re-evaluate your stance because its unrepresentative of your nationalistic views.
    There's a difference between nationalism and patriotism in the face of an ever fading British culture and identity, having to tip toe around anyone different, for fear of "offending them". Take your brain to the shop, you need a look over.

    I do agree but the call is very specific and the one thing is says is there is no god but allah (not really acceptable daily broadcast stuff in a multi faith country)

    The terrorists are following what the quoran or whatever the hell its called how it was intended. That's what I call a Muslim.

    I don't think there are 3 million practicing Muslims in the UK. Most only do it because of peer pressure.

    A good Muslim shouldn't have to be called for prayer anyway.

    Assuming you're not a troll, apart from being disgustingly authoritarian, banning Islam would most likely just increase extremism.

    So do you think having calls to prayer blasting over Muslim communities in the UK will make them more or less isolated, more or less integrated, and more or less radicalised? I won't bow down to terrorists and defend or refuse to criticise a belief system which I find utterly abhorrent.

    And fascism is a modern ideology. Islam was written for a completely different society 1500 years ago. Thankfully the excessive majority of Muslims agree to ignore the violence in the Quran and live perfectly peaceful lives because they are aware of this blatant fact.
    Yes thankfully many Muslims don't acknowledge the most violent parts. Those parts still exist though, and are worth criticising. Furthermore, while it's true that very few Muslims actually support terrorism, hundreds of millions of Muslims are homophobic, sexist, and antisemitic. Which is up to them, I completely believe they should be entitled to their views. However, I shall criticise them and their religion, as I am entitled to my own views too.

    So are the terrorists also following the Quran when it quite clearly forbids aggressive warfare and forbids killing child/female prisoners of war, or when it prohibits terror for ideological purposes?

    If the problem is people cherry-picking what to follow, then the fault is with the people and not the ideology.
