Praying for the repose of the souls of those killed.

So I was thinking this morning.

With all the killing, death and carnage we are seeing in the news from syria to iraq to kenya and nigeria by islamic terrorists - what are the thoughts of the ordinary muslim who sees the atrotricities committed by their fellow muslims? Are there any muslims who would care to reply? No PM’s please.


#4

How about not holding a few innocents responsible for the actions of hateful people?

Do you hold Protestants in general responsible for the actions of the Westboro Baptist Church? Catholics for the IRA?


#5

Did I say I was holding anyone responsible?

I think you are reading way too much into my question.

I think the actions of the westboro baptist church are terrible and I also don’t like prolife extremists that kill abortion doctors or bomb clinics.
However, those incidents are rare.

My question is an honest one.


#6

This is terrible news; pray for the departed souls in Kenya.


#7

This is terrible. I’m constantly amazed that humans can do this to one another, I’ll be praying for those killed.


#8

What is sad is that it is increasing and not decreasing and they brag about the brutal acts they are committing.


#9

They’ve already struck again bbc.com/news/world-africa-27882084 Look’s like Salafist inspired Jihad is really starting to go global.


#10

Terrible, looks like a double standard to me, we are more concerned about Iraq than Africa.


#11

this is becoming like the Rwanda genocide all over again…and we did not do anything to help the Rwandans at all.


#12

With all the media coverage it seems they are all trying to get noticed.

I wouldn’t call it a double standard. We did send some people to nigeria to help look for the group of over 200 girls taken by boko haram.

Also we had already been fighting a war in iraq.
