    Stop immigration from these countries indefinitely. And then focus on the home grown lemmings.

    It's. That. Fu8king. Easy.

    In regards to eliminting ISIS from the UK

    I think if someone is a Muslim fighting ISIS Islam may well play a part in what motivates you to fight ISIS.
    And what evidence do you have to suggest this?

    Human beings that have a religion or culture or some kind of philosophy tend to be motivated by those things.

    Truly liberal countries need all religions!
    What a load of twaddle.

    If religions' main purpose is to exercise control over the masses, then how can you possibly connect that to being liberal?

    The similar sentimentality you've expressed across numerous threads is pointlessly naive at best.

    I don't believe truly liberal countries need all religions. But liberal countries do need a variety of cultures and religion inevitably accompanies this

    No once again you are confusing a religion and culture

    But to be a liberal country we need liberal cultures. This is why Islam has no place in any liberal society as it is inherently illiberal.

    There is no confusion whatsoever. To argue that religion and culture can be inherently separated is a very flawed argument. Of course there is a difference but it is virtually impossible to have a culture without religion, particularly in reference to Arabic and middle eastern cultures and Islam

    this is opposite of the argument that is used when we try and challenge Islam's negative impact on culture

    Then it's you can't blame the faith (like FGM in Indonesia) it's all about culture

    Seems the old adage applies 'ask 2 Muslims 1 question and you'll get 3 different replies'

    well, there is at least one good thing Islam does for the world : it provides an almost infinite subject matter for debate and discussion on TSR and elsewhere

    It's fair to ask someone to get a degree in medicine before they decide what the best diagnosis is for a patient; it is equally fair to ask someone to merely read the Quran before they decide what the best solution is for a problem involving Islam.

    My point is, if you have not yet studied a subject, then you are in no position to provide solutions to problems revolving around that subject.

    Well he's right in that you should know what you're talking about before you praise or condemn it. Otherwise, you're just following opinions blindly.

    Lou has already apologised for this : a very rare event on this forum, and very much to her honour

    however, if I had a couple of quid for each time I was accused of not having read the Quran, I would be significantly better off than I am now

    at some moment, I started quoting not only the Quran, but also some Islamic scholars and manuals, so as to cut short the usual accusations of "ignorance, ignorance, ignorance" and gain time

    the result was that I was accused of "showing off", trying to "appear knowledgeable" by "plundering google" etc etc

    so, whether you will appear ignorant or knowledgeable, the result is the same. Many Muslims think that Islam is their reserved domain of study, and that the Kuffar have strictly nothing to do there.

    In any case, if a Kaffir commenting on Islam had some real knowledge, he would have already converted, since Islam is the obvious, self-evident truth.

    Best

    I'm sorry, but were all Muslims behind the Brussels attacks? All of them were to blame? Or just a tiny minority?
