    One is a threat to one society, whereas the other is a threat to the other.

    Sooner the world wakes up and drags itself out of this ridiculous dark age God-of-the-gaps superstitious religious mindset and becomes secular the better for everyone IMHO.

    To think that we're now in the year 2016 and still subscribe to any kind of religion at all is a mystery to me.

    Having said that, Islam in itself isn't a threat to anything. It's the people who commit atrocities "in the name of" Islam that are the threat.

    Are we talking about Western societies? If so, both can be. Islamophobia is bigotry and that is unacceptable. Islam can be a real threat if it is politicised and interpreted in a literal fashion.

    Fundamentally, Islam is not compatible with Western society.

    100's of people are killed weekly because of Islam around the world. Every continent.. Women, children, governments, jews, Hiundus, atheists, wrong types of muslims.

    Number of deaths due to "Islamophobia" maybe 1 a year

    Islamaphobia - Making the west anti-Islam will give more reason for some Muslims to commit terrorist acts. Look back at the 20th century, more specifically the 1930's and 40's when Jews were used as a scapegoat, take what you will from that.

    That's what you call religion of peace? "Do what we say or get bombed"?

    Lol.

    You literally said just above that Islamophobia (a word etymologically wrong) will increase terrorist attacks.

    I am well aware most Muslims are just plain people. Your logic though is incomprehensible.

    Doubt the two are even remotely comparable.

    That's not how this works. He made the original statement so it is him that has to explain it fully before I can elaborate myself.

    Lol, American foreign policy involves using bombs against their enemies. I think that's pretty self-explanatory.

    Pretty explanatory... someone needs to learn.what an.explanation is.

    The fact that you even think they're comparable to ISIS is astounding.

    I said 'self-explanatory' - as in easy to understand.

    I never said they were comparable to ISIS.

    You need to work on your reading comprehension.

    So, their retaliation after the twin 9/11 shows their foreign policy to bomb places because they don't agree with them?

    Thought so.

    Sorry for thinking of ISIS when someone refers to "Islam" and "terrorist acts" - what correlation would these two have anyway?

    (That is the post you replied too. Instead of telling me to improve my reading comprehension, I think you should focus on your memory.)
