    Say "completely wrong" again like its a fact.

    Come on, use your brain. You don't have to be a supporter of something to think favourably of it. Plain and simple.
    if you think favourably of something, you support it, and vice versa

    it's only a question of degree of support : you can also support simply by omission (e.g. by not denouncing jihadis)

    why, even expressing a favourable opinion on a forum is a form of support, since it can influence other people

    Well hardly any of them do.
    Hardly any Muslims ascribe to the First Pillar of Islam? Are you sure? I thought that was the prime definition of a Muslim.

    Killing those who oppose your ideology is not condemned in Islam. It is prescribed. 5:32-33 is fairly clear about it, and tafsir such as Ibn Kathir remove any ambiguity, with use of the hadith.

    The problem here is that you are assuming that because you follow a particular version of Islam, that it is the only one.

    Unfortunately, it is not. However much we all want every Muslim to follow the sanitised, cherry-picked version that you do, it is painfully clear that others favour an unmodernised version that cherry-picks a different set of verses and hadith. It is not enough to simply accuse them of being "Not True Muslims", because they are saying the same thing about you. And they are prepered to go further to impose their views. Views that you are unwittingly legitimising by insisting that your interpretation is the only true one.

    Still as obsessed with Islam as usual.

    Nope. And I'm not going to respond to you because I don't like this trend of me saying something and you twisting my words.

    They are doing stuff, they are dying in the Middle East fighting against ISIS. Or did you just neglect that?
    A minority of them are doing that. A minority. There are more appeasing the terrorists than fighting them.

    Nope.

    I am favourable of Jeremy Corbyn because of his honesty, but I have a lot of disputes with his views.

    You can be favourable of something without supporting them.

    To be fair, it's mostly trending because of people complaining about the hashtag.
    Thats because some idiots actually got it trending in the first place.

    Based on what you quoted, and what you then said, I did not twist your words.

    The fact that ISIS are anti-west, particularly the USA, who in the eyes of many people in the Middle East, have destroyed their country.Their opposition to Assad.
    you can support anti assad groups that have nothing to do with assad. in fact IS are committing very few forces to direct conflict with him compared to Syrian National Coalition for example. can you asnwer my other question pls -you stated earlier you were atheist. what is your view on the islamic doctrine that these people are exposed to

    Because most of them aren't able to fight them, and if you're saying that 'every Muslim should go and fight ISIS' then you are implicitly condemning the thousands of British people who stayed at home during WW1 and WW2.

    You can be favourable of something without supporting them.

    :facepalm:
    this is true only if you keep your views to yourself

    if you make your favourable views public, you are supporting the relevant cause/person/ideology

    you don't have to agree 100% with something in order to support it

    in any case, a person who has a favourable view of ISIS is not likely to report them if he learns of some attack being prepared : support by omission

    again to be fair, islam gives him plenty to talk about doesnt it.

    if it were buddhism causing people to do things like this over and over again all over the place, im sure it would be hotly discussed to. but facts are, its pretty much just islamists

    Can you get this evidence up from a reliable source because I'm part of many societies, clubs and charities here in the UK and am friends with many muslims. Whenever I ask for their true views on ISIS they don't sound very "favourable" about it quite the opposite actually. Have you asked any muslims of their views mate?
    This Pew Research world-wide survey shows high levels of support for extremist views.
    15% of Turkish Muslims, 26% of Bangladeshi and 29% of Egyptian, think that suicide bombing is "often/sometimes justified".

    Turkey has 6 million Muslims who have a "favourable opinion" of ISIS. 16 million in Pakistan, and 24 million in Nigeria.

    http://www.pewforum.org/2013/04/30/t...iety-overview/

    Don't spur hate saying that an "alarming number" of muslims share or support terrorism.
    Pointing out the results of reliable research is not "spurring hate". I would suggest that the important issue is to detemine why so many Muslims hold these views, and find ways of changing them, rather than denying that they hold them in the first place.

    That's not true. There are plenty of military aged men (and women) who are probably fit and able enough, but who are either too cowardly or just unwilling to do so.

    Sigh. We don't. We just don't leap to simplistic conclusions to stir up the masses.
    Do you reach any conclusions, or do you ignore information and statistics that go against your currently held beliefs?

    Why must the multicultural nightmare be continually pushed, when this is the result?

    These people are just evil
    It has nothing to with religion imo....similar to the nazis
    It has everything to do with religion, ISIS gets most of its insane ideas from the Qur'an.
