Topic: Serious Discussion / How can we deal with the Muslim overreactions?

I am so happy to see that I have contributed to the forum already with this thread. I love stimulation discussion and I eagerly await to check in on this thread every few days between my overseas business flights.

I have to agree that specific Muslims do over react at the slightest hint of an insult. Why is embedded deeply into their religion and it cannot be “Removed” or “fixed”.

The right to own a gun to defend yourself should be a universal right.

You being an atheist, what rational arguments do you have against same-sex marriage? Oh wait, you have none.

I never said I am against gay marriage. I h ave nothing against gay marriage, but I do have issues with gays raising children.

Knowing full well that this will only lead to major digression:
Why?

This thread is not the proper place to discuss it, I will make a thread one day.

I love how you are unable to reply to our arguments. Instead, you repeat the premise of this thread wording each question slightly differently. Your questions in your latest post have been answered. Now reply to the arguments put up against you. Are you unable to do so?

I plan to reply to all arguments. I am glad you are so eager to see them!

What is the penalty for that crime? The death penalty? Do the cops slap the cuffs on and read you your rights if you choose to break the law and kill yourself?

In Singapore and India, a person who attempts to commit suicide and survives can be imprisoned for up to one year.

Better get it right the first time in those third world countries. Guess they have no clue about mental health treatment or something.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How can we deal with the Muslim overreactions?

Lets get to the core of this – why do many Muslims seem to go insane with rage when anyone dares to even speak about the Prophet Mohammed?

And more importantly, why do the peaceful Muslims always do nothing to defend Islam and inform the world that a bunch of radicals are the cause of the problem?

Why are the images of the protests from dozens of countries blanketing the Television, not just in the USA? ( its worldwide )

And when we have leaders of Muslim countries doing things like this:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/23/world/meast/pakistan-film-bounty/index.html?hpt=hp_bn2

And this:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/24/world/meast/iran-ahmadinejad-interview/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

Are we supposed to think it is just a “small group of extremists” behind this?
Pakistan was harboring Usama Bin Laden for heavens sake and lying to the Allies.

Mitt Romney will insure that no Democrats take the sacred right of gun ownership away from us. Why?
He will probably appoint 5 Supreme Court justices, and probably will ban gay marriage in the Constitution.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Terrorism and the TSA

The TSA are true patriots and they should be applauded. No attacks since 9/11.
I still feel we should do more, like Israel does with their national airline. They do not play games with security and they use every tool available to insure total protection including racial profiling.

You see, they understand even racism is OK as long as it saves lives. Sadly, the USA does not understand that.

What obligations does the United States have to Israel? And if there are obligations, how far should the United States go to meet those obligations?

Finally, if the United States attacked Iran to stop it from gaining a nuclear weapon, is it for the benefit solely of Israel or for all of the world?

We are 100% obligated to help Israel. They are surrounded by fanatics hell bent on destroying them.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How can we deal with the Muslim overreactions?

I changed the title to better reflect what I meant for this thread.

1: I am not condemning all Muslims, that is ludicrous.
2: Some Muslims go crazy at the mere mention of disrespecting their Prophet, often with violence.
3: They try to kill those who they find even the least bit disrespectful. ( Ask Mr. Rushdie )
4: They cannot seem to respect other peoples right to say whatever the hell they want about the Prophet Muhammad. It’s almost child like their response, and to me it screams deep feelings of insecurity about their religion.
5: Why does the “Religion of peace” demand the death of those who disrespect their Prophet? Did they ever ask what their Prophet would think of their behavior?
6: Will Muslims ever get over the fact that they are cast offs? Abraham had a child with his servant girl but god told him that is not what he meant, and the child and the servant girl were cast out into the Sahara or some other barren desert. They are not the chosen people,but the descendants of a rejected child and mother.
7: Killing is wrong. Why do we tolerate killing over mere videos, drawings, etc?
8: My teacher told me I need to respect all religions, including Islam. I told her I refuse to respect Islam due to the total disrespect it has towards women. Stoning to death, a woman is raped and she is told she dishonored the family, not being able to go out without a male family member, not being able to drive, all of that kind of shit that is horribly skewed in favor of men. How can I respect a religion like that? How dare someone tell me to respect it!

You stereotype them by saying that they’re all like that.

You call their religion a fantasy.

You show a complete lack of depth of understanding or compassion for anyone who’s ideals you don’t understand. While it’s completely normal to feel threatened and offended by fanatic extremists, your reasons seem all too wrong. Many of the extremists do things against what their religion really says to do. There was a man who claimed to be doing his Christian duty while committing a terrible massacre, and it was a horrible event that got some news coverage. But surely your extremely Western ideals tell you the Christianity teaches people good values, so you know that most Christians would frown upon such actions. Why don’t you think that similar ideals would help most Muslim individuals have healthy behavior and help them to be friendly.

You say things like

In the middle east Muslims fly off the handle and call for death the second anything negative is said against their religion or the prophet Muhammad.
The mere mention of a video that depicts the prophet Muhammad in a negative light inflames violence and hatred from them.
living by several thousand year old religious fantasy
Religion is all great and cute
just like the tooth fairy and Easter bunny and Santa Claus
What will it take to make the Muslim world realize that it is 2012

I’d like to reiterate my point that you’ve shown great ignorance and a lack of depth of knowledge or understanding. You seem to be trying to build yourself up by putting them down, as well as putting down their religion. Either it’s that, or you genuinely don’t understand how this situation really is, the same one that you speak of.

I am Atheist.

In the middle east Muslims fly off the handle and call for death the second anything negative is said against their religion or the prophet Muhammad. They see a cartoon and go crazy and call for blood. The mere mention of a video that depicts the prophet Muhammad in a negative light inflames violence and hatred from them.

How do you deal with a group this large who is still living by several thousand year old religious fantasy, ( in my opinion its fantasy )in the modern world? Religion is all great and cute and comforting when it harms no one, ( just like the tooth fairy and Easter bunny and Santa Claus ) but when religion begins to have real world ( and deadly ) consequences when is enough, enough?

It took nuclear bombs to shock the fanatical Japanese out of their fantasy world in their sick devotion to their emperor. What will it take to make the Muslim world realize that it is 2012 and if they don’t calm the hell down serious and definitive consequences will be the end result?

I do not want to argue with you, I am simply pointing out something that will interest you and has been already thought of before. In 1992. I know you will enjoy the episode.
