Is Islam to Blame?


#1

I believe thursday’s bombings in London, combined with the first wave of explosions two weeks ago, are changing something for the better. Never before have I heard Muslims so sincerely denounce terrorism committed in our name as I did on my visit to Britain a few days ago. We’re finally waking up.

Except on one front: the possible role of religion itself in these crimes.

Even now, the Muslim Council of Britain adamantly insists that Islam has nothing to do with the London attacks. It cites other motives — “segregation” and “alienation,” for instance. Although I don’t deny that living on the margins can make a vulnerable lad gravitate to radical messages of instant belonging, it takes more than that to make him detonate himself and innocent others. To blow yourself up, you need conviction. Secular society doesn’t compete well on this score. Who gets deathly passionate over tuition subsidies and a summer job?

Which is why I don’t understand how moderate Muslim leaders can reject, flat-out, the notion that religion may also play a part in these bombings. What makes them so sure that Islam is an innocent bystander?

It is not an innocent bystander, if muslims do not have kaafir to kill, they kill each other, look at pakistan and the shia and sunni wars.

Read the ahadith collections, that every knowledgable muslim is familiar with, it will give you a true view of the faith.

Remember in the Bible we are told that Ishmael will be a wild *** of a man, with his hand against his brothers, and against the world as well.

Nothing is truer than this. I see that as the first prediction of the future.

See: Attacks on UK will continue, radical cleric says



The author of the original piece is a Canadian Muslim who needs 24/7 protection because of Islamist death threats.

Such is life for a Muslim who dencouces terror.

Good for irshad manji, unfortunately from her tone I believe she has already inherited the title of Kaafir from every muslim reader.

There is a herd mentality in islam, the bombings have not ended, I know loads of muslims (some family), they arent all going to blow themselves up, but I am sure we know at least one person capable of it.
