      Some might also say that you are working on behalf of the FSB or worse that you are an ISIL sympathiser.

      You may soon find yourself helping SIS and the CIA with their enquiries.
      Ah, so thinking killing an 8-year-old muslim girl is wrong is now being an ISIL sympathiser? Good to know.

      You said that, I did not.

      Any civilian death is too many. We also know that terrorists use children as human shields as well as involuntary human bombs precisely because it stirs up public unrest and creates a 'media fog' to deflect from their continued atrocities.

      In other words, your vitriol plays straight into the terrorists hands.

      However the truth is far simper, you simply use tragedy as a means to both troll and get your rep score up.

      Your inflated ego is truly pathetic.

        And what about the right-wing's strategies of division and alienation playing into their hands too?

        And how many children died in wars started by Obama and other ex POTUS?
        Stop blaming Trump for everything, it's really getting ridiculous
        Finally, someone's being sensible - the slander of Trump is now way out of hand, next we'll be told he's causing Global warming or something

        It's funny how most of you need to point at Obama when trump's incompetence is at full show.

        One of them surrounded themselves with idiots and views human lives as fodder material whereas the other took a more cautious cautious approach when it came to analysis of any enemy situation. And this palpably explains why this raid didn't materialize during Obama's presidency.

        The raid was so approved by Hillary.

        Trump had no part in it, he just approved it

        If a Muslim kills another Muslim, they are not a Muslim. They are an apostate.
        ...Of course according to your interpretation. As it's already been alluded to you via another thread, the Muslims that kill other Muslims in the violent sectarianism present in parts of the Muslim world, see themselves/self proclaim themselves as "Muslims"/"True Muslims", often decrying the differing/rival Muslim similarly to you as an apostate/blasphemer...and given apostasy/blasphemy is seen to be a punishable offence by many Muslims, cue in a continuation/exacerbation of such sectarian conflict.

        What's your point here? There is only one correct interpretation of Islam. And yes, apostasy and blasphemy are punishable offences.

        What Islamic ruling do you have in support of that claim?

        I've seen no serious Islamic scholar substantiate the position that a Muslim committing a sinful act means they cease being a Muslim. If they adhere to the five pillars, they are Muslim.

        Your "No True Scotsman" position is puerile

        Killing a Muslim is not just a sin. It's different to just any other sin. I'm not saying that this act does not make you a non-Muslim but it no longer makes you a representative of the faith, since Muslims are forbidding from killing Muslims.

        That doesn't help at all. The whole issue is that it seems many people interpret it differently.

        I guess your reading comprehension must not be top notch, perhaps you should further digest my post. To reiterate...

        Of course according to your interpretation. As it's already been alluded to you via another thread, the Muslims that kill other Muslims in the violent sectarianism present in parts of the Muslim world, see themselves/self proclaim themselves as "Muslims"/"True Muslims", often decrying the differing/rival Muslim similarly to you as an apostate/blasphemer...and given apostasy/blasphemy is seen to be a punishable offence by many Muslims, cue in a continuation/exacerbation of such sectarian conflict.
        There is only one correct interpretation of Islam.
        I think I've covered this in another response to you, to quote..."True Islam", as you seem to allude to, is I'm sure you know a contentious title amongst Muslims fractured into their various sects/interpretations and I'm sure differing/rival Muslims will make similar if not the same statement as you have made above, in relation to their own "True Islam".

        And yes, apostasy and blasphemy are punishable offences.
        Of course under your interpretation. There are self proclaimed Muslims of rival sects/interpretations that do not hold blasphemy and in particular apostasy to be a punishable earthly offence in Islam.

        Though that aside, it's statements like the above quote, rather than preventing apostasy, now seems to contribute to doubts and disbelief amongst some adherents of Islam. It doesn't take much thought to know why. As persecuting apostates and critics, only further highlights the unsound nature of Islam, too often requiring childhood indoctrination and coercion via threats of harm to be accepted as truth (i.e. hell and the various punishments associated with leaving, criticizing and opposing Islam), all in a bid to not expose the likely truth of that insecure religion being unsubstantiated and false.

        That's not what you said before. Your exact words were;

        If a Muslim kills another Muslim, they are not a Muslim

        Of course, some of the "most Islamic" people in history have also been some of the biggest killers of other Muslims. Many of the early caliphs were knee-deep in the blood of other Muslims, as they engaged in brutal civil wars for control of the new Islamic empire. Are you going to say these "right-guided" Islamic caliphs were not Muslims?

        Now let's get down to brass tacks. There is no such thing as Allah. Like all religions, Islam is man-made. And like all such man-made ideologies, the people at the top are characteristically power-hungry, violent, manipulative and greedy. Anyone who stands in their way doesn't just become their enemy, they become an "enemy of God". That's how religion has traditionally worked; it is an exercise of power and control, an exercise of the accumulation of wealth and prestige.

        Saying that, by killing another Muslim, a Muslim ceases to become a Muslim, is not only contrary to the actions of some of the most revered Muslims in history, it also implies that there is some objective standard of behaviour set by heaven against which the people on earth are judged. Given Allah doesn't exist and it's all just made up, that is clearly not the case. Someone is a Muslim if they think of themselves as one and follow the determinative Five Pillars. That is all.

        Yes, but there is only one true interpretation and amazingly that is always the speaker's own interpretation.
