The next Holocaust

In U.S., fear and distrust of Muslims runs deep

Kinda sad really, but I laughed my ass off at the guy with the talk show. Maybe its because deep down I'd like to mess with their minds too.

Hitler did all of that. Islam is the largest religion in the world so people better be careful. I'm not saying I like it, just informing.

this is very true, i just seem to get that a lot of people have the "they hate us, so let's hate them..." childish mentality and until we get past that, progress can't really be made.

Does the date September 11, 2001 mean anything to you?

Lets be fair, It's not so much "they hate us, so let's hate them...", it's "they hyjack planes and crash them into our buildings and kill thousands of our fellow citizens so let's hate them"

ok, let's get this straight brewmenn, that was a handful of people, there is no, "we" and "them". You can't generalize the whole population based on the actions of a few. When can we get past that?

You shouldn't, but most people do. When someone does something "in the name of our God" it reflects badly on everyone who worships that "god". It doesn't matter if its Allah, Yahweh, or Jesus. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, it's just reality.

The deaths at the World Trade Center weren't a comic strip... we have a reason to be pissed off and hate them. If you love them so much, why don't you join their cause so our boys can put a bullet in your brain and we don't have to listen to your garbage anymore.

Not all muslims, just the ones that truly follow the Qu'an.

True muslims are commanded to eradicate infidels

You can't say that... you'll upset them just like the Pope did.


Why the fukc do we have to be so P.C.? Stereotypes don't exist because someone felt like spreading a rumor.

Stereotypes aren't always true. Like, since you are white and are on this website, I can assume that you have sex with your sister, or some other female relative, but I don't actually know that it's true. That is how stereotypes are harmful.

Well, I can't say that I am suprised by this comment. Thanks for once again pointing out how violent you are.

When I get debating on these sites I tend to consider everyones view point and value everyone opinion. In doing so theres one important thing I sometimes loose sight of.

Thank you for reminding me that some people like you are just flaming idiots.

There are good and bad people in every religion, look at those crazy baptists that protested those soldiers funerals and had their kids holding up signs that read "thank god for dead soldiers" that pissed me off almost as much as september 11.
