million you even read either article, you just seem to  stirthepot

first one talks about 'disputed claims'.

2nd one straight away says,

"About 3,000 people from the total group are judged to pose a threat"


but 23k sounds better

One newspaper article from 2001? Is that really the best you can do?   

Are you aware of how much damage 23000 Jihadi's could do? There were no more than 500 active members of the IRA at any one time and they came pretty close to destroying the British government. If your figure was even close to being true it'd be the end of normal life in this country, but in actuality you're more likely to be killed by your microwave than an act of terrorism.

These Jihadi's are incredibly piss poor terrorists in comparison to the IRA and ETA.

It's not uncommon to hear people say things like, "Religion is more trouble than it's worth" "So many wars caused from religion" "Should just be no religion" etc and to a certain degree you gotta understand the point when you just see time and again atrocities committed with a religious connection, and incidents such as the Manchester Arena one always provides a very emotional response which is nothing but entirely natural.

The next logical leap is that Muslims in particular are the problem, and once again in the wake of such an horrible event like the Manchester bombing, which was without question committed by a fanatical muslim terrorist, you can't really blame people for wanting ti pour scorn onto Islam for it's role in the horror.

But this is just naive and ignorant way to think, find any war, any terrorist act, any crime even and at it's core you'll find the same things, Power Hunger, Greed, Hatred, Ignorance. Religion doesn't encourage these things, people do. There are 1.8 billion muslims in the world and ISIS at it's all time peak is thought to have 200,000 active members, supporters and benefactors - approx 0.00001% of the global muslim community. If religion, and specifically Islam is such a bloody-hungry, hateful, terrorist-inspiring faith - why is only 1 in every 1m people that read the book reacting this way??

Let's look at history, terrorists citing christianity as their inspiration have been killing people for thousands of years, and yet still make up the smallest % of the Christian community. I could find 20+ atrocities committed since 2000 with zero religious motivation - how were these poeple incited to kill if not by religion.

PEOPLE make these choice, not religion, the fact it's been such a successful weapon of radicalisation throughout the years does not make religion the problem, the people are hateful manipulative people and if religion wasn't the method they used to spout their ignorant, blood thirsty bile then it would 100% be something else. It's just the box the bomb comes in, it's nothing to do with the bomb itself.

The big danger here is once we take these views, we lower our thinking to that of the terrorists, and hate is what forms from it. We're playing directly into their game, which is why I tough as it is to remain logical in the wake of such horrible things like the manchester bombing, and that dreadful feeling of not feeling 100% safe in your own home, I cannot stress how important it is to remember that in ISIS we're dealing with criminals, not muslims.

August 1995 White Supremacist Set of a bomb in Oklahoma and killed 168 people

September 14 2001 (4 days after 9/11) A Sikh Man was brutally murdered by a christian extremist who mistook him for a Muslim.

July 27th 2008, Christian extremest walks into a Unitarian church during a CHILDRENS play session and starts firing at random, killing 3 people (he was bravely wrestled to the ground which prevented further causalities)

July 22nd 2011, Christian extremest Anders Behring Breivik, set off a car bomb in then going on a shooting spree at a children's summer camp, killing 77 people.

August 5th, 2012 White Christian walks into a Sikh Temple and shoots 6 people

April 13th 2014, White supremacist killed 6 people in a Jewish Community centre.

April 16th, 2007, Korean Born terrorist stormed virginia tech college and killed 32 people, leaving a killing manifesto in which he likens himself to "The Lord Jesus Christ"

June 17th 2015, White supremacist stormed a black-african church and shot 9 people.

November 27th 2015, Anti abortion christian group shot 7 people with an air rifle outside a planned parenthood clinic.



Ever heard of Army of God? US Terror group killed over 500 people in anti-abortion attacks, including anthrax attacks

Ever heard of the IRA, killed 1800 civilians in Rep/N.I throughout time

Ever heard of a little incident known as the Halocoast? 6 million people were ordered to be executed by a christian man because they were Jewish.

These people are criminals, not representatives of their religion, and every religion has then unfortunately associated to them.

The intention with these attacks is to encourage westerners to turn against Muslims, then...more muslims will turn to extremism, this people are hate-filled lunatics, but there are still 1,700,800,000 Muslims in the world who don't share these beliefs but every post like the one you made pushes one more towards radicalisation and makes attacks like last nights more likely.... I get how easy it is to be angry and wanna blame a blanket of people but I just can't stress enough how badly you shouldn't.
