He was debating that it was a religion of peace while one of his coworkers disagreed, this happened a couple of weeks ago. Farook and his cowardly wife decide the best way to prove their thesis is to gun down innocent people and stock up on an arsenal of weapons. Flawed logic to say the least.
To say the very least, which is not my custom.
What’s is extremely ironic with the advent of ISIS and these lone-wolf attacks they encourage is that they have caused far more grief and harm to the very religion they claim to follow. Many peaceful muslims were slaughtered in Syria, many had to flee for their lives to avoid a radical, perverted and extremist view. Now, peaceful and otherwise good contributors in society are wrongfully being viewed negatively by some simply because they follow a religion that others have falsely represented.
Falsely represented?:coffee_spray: That is funny as Hades to me.
Radical, perverted and extremist? Have you ever read their Holy Books? The Jihadists ARE following the tenets of their religion. The “peaceful”(for lack of a better word)are not following their Scriptures.
This attack was particularly grotesque as it targeted a group that helped the disabled access social programs. Seems the targets are always those most easy to engage, not courageous by any means. Be it a school of children, a dance club, a church or a government office party, those most willing to attack with weapons are sure to attack the most vulnerable and unexpecting.
They attack where ever, and when ever. Fort Hood was not a soft target, even though this administration prevented the soldiers from being armed.
These types of attacks are only conducted by the most cowardly and extreme in society. I read so many online comments that condemn an entire religion, even a NY newspaper headline, when we all know that 99.99% of muslims don’t harm a fly and go about their business the same way all of us do. It is moderates and peaceful followers that need to be embraced and supported as they throw a wrench in the plans of radicals who wish to recruit.
Well that is another can of worms. The quran emphatically calls for violence against unbelievers, 109 times.
"Not equal are those of the believers** who sit (at home),** except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives.** Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home).** Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward "
Seems to say that the peaceful Muslims are lesser than those who wage war.
“It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war until he had made a great slaughter in the land…”
Seems to say that slaughter is the preference, to POWs.
Quran 9: 38-39;
**“O ye who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place.” **
Right there, they tells us that if they do not fight the unbelievers, they will be punished.
We really need to get our heads out of the sands. They own Holy Book justifies terrorism. Those you refer to as “peaceful” are actually the ones perverting Islam. And, since it is OK to lie to us, and they are REQUIRED to support the Jihad with persons or WEALTH, we can only assume that more than a small amount are jihadists. Not all of them strap on bombs and go out to kill the Infidel, but those who don’t, are supposed to fund those who do.
Just my opinion on another disturbing attack on America that tries to promote fear. As Putin said, this fight against ISIS requires “one powerful fist”.
The first thing that needs to happen is that we need to define Terrorists. The definition must include those who finance the jihad.
