    Depends on location, my college has mostly asians pakistani and blacks and they all get on really well.

    And to the op, well its a matter of belief, the muslims believe there religion is right, God brought down the Quran, a message to a messenger to worship God, his our creator, without him we wouldnt be here. If God was to just reveal himself we would all submit to him except for a few people, I know thats a lame argument but there is a little point to it.

    Yes because in all of this the real victims are of course Muslims.
    There are no "real" or "fake" victims.

    It is not a game. It is not a competition and neither is it something that you can use to push your Islamophobic agenda down people's throats.

    I accept that people in the world don't have the same religious beliefs as me.

    well my race is the minority in my area (bearing in my mind I'm white) so I don't know about Muslims that live around me.
    But I'm sure that in more white areas, there must be more hatred toward Islam...

    I'm a Muslim girl. Don't cover my hair or anything. Some people haven't even thought about me being a Muslim because I don't look like one. It is hard I live in an area where there are 80% of people who are not Muslim and not from an Asian background. It's horrible I'll be sat in class and someone says "oh I hate Muslims" and I don't just sit there thinking to myself "here we go again" but I'll tell them I'm one and that I've done nothing wrong and that I disagree with every single thing that those terrorists have done. And then they will realise that all Muslims aren't bad. I just think people need to be educated on it and stop thinking that it's all Muslims and that people such as Isis have got the whole concept of Islam wrong. I know for a fact if all this **** goes on it may be hard for me to get a job. But I'm not too sure though

    I'm lucky no one has said anything directly addressed at me. Cause that would hurt.

    It proves that we are the real victims of terror attacks. People claim their liberty and rights and way of life is under attack, when in actual fact it is our lives and freedoms which are.

    Why are you winking at me? Do you think victims are a matter to be joked about?

    Or do you just have a nervous tic?



    The OED doesn't seem to think so, and frankly, they are more qualified than you are.
    I think by "Islamophobia", he means criticism of Islam rather than criticism of Muslims, and I wouldn't even say that it would be in poor taste to criticise Islam

    160+ racially motivated murders of innocent europeans within the last 4 months.

    Thousands of cases of Widespread gang rapings, devaluing and dehumanizing 12 year old girls.

    The hate on Islam is not racism, it is a reaction to the outrageous acts that have become increasingly widespread, and basically part of the baggage that comes with having Islam in Europe.

    Most overly Politically correct lefties will chose to take no action in the fear of 'offending' Islamics. This will probably result in terrorists blowing a train up in London, as no action will have been taken to get to the root of the problem.

    The left wing culture has blood on it's hands due to it's delusional ideology over ridiculous over acceptance, scared to offend those who NEED offending.

    I don't believe that people should be blamed for the actions of the minority. That said, extremists don't seem to be all that rare and even moderate Muslims seem to tacitly support them. Either that or they're scared to say anything.

    I find it astonishing that a cult that venerates a genocidal warlord from the 7th century feels it deserves respect. True, misguided individuals deserve sympathy - and there are millions that do seem to have a huge disconnect from the evil ideology of Islam, but I do not see how it is possible for a reasonable person to be Islamophobic (which implies an irrational fear).
    How is Islam a cult?

    It is meaningless in the sense that it bundles hate of the religion and hate of religious followers together. So someone who attacks muslims and someone who criticises Islam are bundled into the same category..

    It doesn't bother me at all because TSR is not representative of the general public (thank god). I just find it funny how it's always the same non-Muslim posters arguing and fighting over Islam. :lol:
    Same ****, different day really. :yawn:

    The opinions of Muslims and other minority groups seem to matter more than the majority though. We aren't allowed to say anything remotely negative about a group - even if it's just the plain ugly truth - or we are called bigots. It shuts down free speech and causes resentment; that's why people are becoming more xenophobic. It really is making matters worse.
