In Reply: Attack The Act And The Actors, But Leave The Generalizing Out Of It

In reply to: Notes from the Cab: I Must Admit That I Am Sick of Mohammedans

I'll go this far, with ya... I'm sick of the ones who murder and maim in the name of Islam, that's for sure...

I just can't see how one gets from being opposed to Wahhabi terrorism to believing that it is being a Muslim that is evil, rather than being a fundamentalist fanatic and murderer. To do so, one has to believe that all Muslims are Wahhabi fundamentalists, but this isn't borne out by the facts.

While it seems like a whole lot of the widely reported murders allegedly/actually committed by Muslims have a fanatical "religious" motivation, the vast majority of Muslims have never committed any violent act in the name of their faith or in any way supported those who do. And considering that more people worldwide identify as Muslim than they do any other religious faith, that's saying something. I just find it awful hard to believe that it is being Muslim that makes one a fanatical murderer, and that most of 'em are just playing possum, waiting for the right time to strike.
