No, but we DO hear about Zionists fighting with Palestinians, conservative Christians attacking perfectly legal abortion clinics, etc. The Buddhists have a way better track record than you guys, though; just a few self-barbecues.

Islam is no more violent than other faiths in an of itself.
People are being violent and hateful, regardless of their faith. If you want to, you can turn your faith around to mean what you want it to mean, and let you hate and kill the ones you want to hate and kill.
When we listen to the news, we hear about Iraqi civilians killed by Western troups. We hear that one gang of soccer supporters has attacked another gang of soccer supporters. We hear that France has thrown out many Romanis. We hear that BP has still not fixed the leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
A person's religion is seldom mentioned in the news, at least over here in Europe.
"Peace" is not spelled like "piece", stupid. Where's YOUR thinking cap?

I've been told that because much of Islam's canon was established during the contested control of a city-state and a real risk of outright extinction, it has edicts more amenable to violence as a solution to threats.
Of course, Christian apologetics didn't have trouble justifying the crusades. So how much the content of the canon actually matters would be up for debate even if my previous assertion was taken as fact.

I remember when the IRA was on the news...

By, "Hare Krishnas scalped elderly in nursing home", I hope he means financially scammed them, and not cut off the top of their craniums :/

No that's right 'waiting1', because there are no Christian countries fighting war's and killing people on other the soil of countries with non-Christian religions such as say, Iraq or Afghanistan.
Oh no, wait..
9/6/2010 2:04:03 AM
Are you implying that America is a Christian country? I don't follow much of what's going on in Iraq or Afghanistan, so if there's some other nation doing this, my bad.
However, Bush did LEAD us into the war with his so-called sign from god. Maybe that's what you meant.
9/6/2010 2:10:34 AM
waiting1 clearly doesn't get news from the same sources I do -- I quite often hear of people from the right wing of Zionism appropriating people's orchards and then shooting at them when they complain. I don't have to listen to the news to have an idea about radical Christian fundamentalists, though -- I've been physically attacked by them often enough to draw my own conclusions. (Dude, y'all complain about gay people not being nice to you after how you act towards us? Seriously, now?)

And when the amazing aerial waltzers of America look down as all sorts of unpleasant magical mayhem ensues? And the hoary haunters in their Heavenly mansions will observe Hell from their entrance halls (their nebulous nature makes any other rooms unnecessary, spirits don't need shitters, eaters, sleepers etc). They'll see the eternal agony of unbelievers and other sinners in God's torture chambers, possibly even that of their own son or daughter? God'll fix it for them to be forever blissful and to remain unperturbed about the eternal suffering in His torture chamber.

How is something more [in]excusable depending on the religious faith of the person? What planet are you on? Look at the person, not at what they believe in. People, regardless of their faith or lack thereof have been guilty of the most horrific crimes and also some of the best, most profound and important gestures and discoveries. get your head out of your ass and, perhaps, consider this the way an adult person would... or is that too hard for you?

No, Islam is not a religion of peace, at least as practiced. Many Muslims use their religion as an excuse to blow shit up.
Christianity is not a religion of peace either, at least as practiced. Christians have used their religion as an excuse to kill lots of people.
Jews have used *their* religion as an excuse to kill lots of people.
So have Hindus, so did the Aztecs, and so did many, many others.
Superstition leading to violence isn't a Christian problem. It's a religious problem. Why do you fundies think that just because we don't like *you* we like the radical Muslims any better? You people are *all* crazy.
9/6/2010 3:11:33 AM
Does that mean that 58% of Americans do say that Islam is more violent than other faiths? *sigh*

First, radical Jews who kill innocents unfortunately exist, Conservative Christians have done horrible things in Africa, for example, Buddhist monks are accused of aggresion in Thailand............oh yeah, you got your nanny, that is, TELEVISION.
9/6/2010 4:08:42 AM
Of course, you rely on television without thinking that until 2001 you had no clue what Islam was about.
9/6/2010 4:09:31 AM
Christianity IS terrorism. Control through fear.
9/6/2010 4:09:34 AM
Scalping? What is this, Daniel Boone?
9/6/2010 4:56:11 AM
9/6/2010 5:18:59 AM
Yeah, you're going to need to provide a citation. Scalping? Isn't that what you guys did to the Native Americans?
9/6/2010 5:29:44 AM
I have to wonder where you get your news because even when I substitute Muslim as the perpetrator of all the crimes you mention, I come up blank on my searches.
Then again, I don't pay attention to either FoxNews or WingNutDaily, so maybe that why.
9/6/2010 6:35:32 AM
I read about the afterlife
"Today radical Zionists blew up a child care"
I haven't heard anything as specific as child care -- but they do perform acts of terror.
"Consevative Christians kill 50 on Army Base"
Well it wasn't an army base -- but Timothy McVeigh did kill a lot of people.
"Hare Krishnas scalped elderly in nursing home"
True, I've not heard anything violent about them.
"Buddhists car bombed local schools"
Yeah, Buddhists are nice.
So what I've concluded is that Abrahamic religions are more violent than other religions. Thanks for clearing that up!
9/6/2010 6:44:46 AM
We do have stories about fundies bombing abortion clinics or shooting abortion doctors, or Christians putting bombs in front of mosques, etc.
9/6/2010 7:03:11 AM
I suggest you start reading up what has been happening in India and Sri Lanka regarding Hindus, Buddhists and Christians. Enjoy.

The thing is, that after the Muslims migrated to Medina because Mecca was persecuting them severely, the Meccans first forbade any caravon or convoy to deliver food and supplies to Medina and then they attacked Medina itself with thousands of men while the muslims were in the hundreds, with the hopes of completely destroying Islam and basically committing genocide. These Rapture Retards however cannot stand that the 100s or so Muslims stood against the 1000s of Meccans and actually won. After that, becuase of the caravans nand convoys not being allowed to come to medina by the Meccans, the Muslims in Medina, who were put in charge by the Chrsitians and Jews of that city as well, had to get the food and supplies from somewhere for its citizens. So, they gave the Meccans a taste of their own medicine by attacking their caravans and convoys and taking those food and supplies.
The Christian right wing retards however have woven a completely different story around this. They wanted to see the Muslims being wiped out insteaad of defending themselves.
