    I don't understand. I don't just obey Allah because I fear the punishments, I obey him because I want the rewards.
    It's the same principle.
    You should behave well because it is the right thing to do - and you understand that. Not because someone is threatening or bribing you.

    Why is this relevant? Read the thread title and post relevant things.
    Evidently I was responding to some asinine thing somebody else had said. Read my whole post and reply relevant things.

    No it's not a lot of the muslim countries are light blue compared to a lot of non muslim countries.

    You can just google "murder rates by country" and check the details yourself. I'm not doing the research for you I'm too busy.
    That map is pretty inconclusive as evidence as it also shows some Muslim countries with the highest rate, and some non-Muslim countries with the lowest.

    It wasn't their religious dress, it was their religious scarf.
    ???

    religious dress means items of religious clothing, not just dresses

    I'm not trying to legitimise anything but don't sit there and pretend the west does not commit mass murder.

    7 million Jews ring a bell? Or you forgotten about that already? Stalin? Also indiscriminately bombing the living hell out of an civilian populated area does not count as war, that is deliberate mass murder.
    Interesting that you use Hitler and Stalin as examples of "the west", when in reality their regimes bear more resemblance to religious ideology.

    Think about it:
    Revered "father figure" figurehead who cannot be criticised.
    "Sacred" texts from which much policy is derived.
    Ideology based on assertion rather than reason.
    Use of fear and reward to motivate.
    Embraces the concept of expansionism, by force if necessary.
    Abrogation of moral resonsibility to a higher power.
    Intolerance of criticism and dissent
    Severe and brutal punishment for out-groups and opponents.
    And so on.

    Personally, I think that the area bombing carried out at the end of WW2 was unjustified. "Bomber" Harris himself admitted that some of the last raids were purely punitive, to send a message to Germany never to rise up again. Kinda like sura 8:37 instructing Muslims to "deal with [those defeated] so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."

    Care to give any examples of deliberate, indiscriminate mass bombing of civilians by a member of NATO in the last 50 years?

    TSR is the most Islamophobic place online smh.
    Demonstrably untrue.
    Try Stormfront, EDL, Britain First, BNP, etc

    However, it is true that TSR contains much well-reasoned criticism of Islam as an ideology.

    Edit: Through my extensive research and knowing a few people who went to that exact concert there are rumours thegirls were infact somali.
    How out of like 10k audience does he notice a few hijabis there and has the audacity to tell them to take it off. :curious:


    OPINIONS MY TSRians!!!!
    We don't know if the girls were muslim or not and he didn't force them to take it off, I get how you're feeling but still we don't got enough info and we shouldn't judge anyways over something little like that. We should complain how drake is mad overrated tbh tho.

    Wrong. Coalition forces did not engage in deliberate, or mass, bombing of civilians.

    If you think they did, please give specifics of the raids, their objectives, and the casualties involved. Remember that the war in Iraq was one of the most comprehensively covered and reported conflicts in history.

    I am not denying that there were civilian casualties from air raids, sometimes way beyond "acceptable collateral damage" (personally, I think no level is "acceptable"), but very attack was supposedly aimed at military targets. Personally, I think the level of certainty of the intelligence used should have been higher to avoid such errors, but again, they were not deliberately targetting civilians. And there was no mass bombing.

    So, if you are claiming that there have been examples of botched air-raids on supposed military targets that have led to civilian deaths, then I agree. And while such events cannot be completely eliminated during war (during Desert Storm, more British soldiers were killed by Americans than by Iraqis, FFS!), every effort should be made to keep them to a minimum. Again personally, I don't think that this has always happened with the US forces.
