    So when one Muslim beheads somebody in London or numerous go insane over various videos or cartoons, it isn`t representative of all Muslims, but then you go onto the internet and find a semi-attractive one with a funny headscarf and suddenly one person does represent the whole religion?

    Once again, this is all you need to know. It`s a primary source. No ideological presuppositions.

    All you need to know

    This is also ironic because Islam is the only religion that South Park was not really able to make fun of. They tried, but the network was intimidated. There`s a reason. I`m sure some people would`ve died somewhere if they did to Islam what they did to Scientology or Mormonism, among others.

    @Andrew155: They DID make fun of Islam a couple of times. BUT after they aired they were "censored" to remove the image of Prophet Muhammad. So then they made an episode making fun of the censoring of Muhammad... this got them in trouble too (of course).

    Depictions of humans or animals? Forbidden, off with her head!

    I`m sure SHE has a terrific sense of humour, but the "people" who are causing trouble DO NOT.

    There are crazy idiots out of there of every creed and color and religion. No one group has a monopoly. I`m sure that many of the world travelers here at IAB have noted that about 90% of the people in the world, all over the world, are pretty decent, loving, caring, genuinely nice people. And about 10% are non-nice individuals. And that ratio holds true across colors, creeds, genders, sexual orientation, religion, etc. At least in my experience.

    I wonder how many people know that Islam actually helped pull Europe out of the dark ages. Now, the Islamic world is undergoing its own dark ages because the fundamentalists have overtaken the progressive voices. These things are cyclical. We should encourage the rational Muslims to do good and not try to lump them in with the extremists. The nutjobs make life vastly more difficult for the moderate Muslims than they do for any of us westerners.

    You are right in one respect, Christianity promoted and actively killed non-believers...during the crusades 700-900 YEARS AGO!!!! Islam is CURRENTLY promoting death to infidels, therefore they are an imminent threat. And don`t try to spin this as something that only radicals believe. The Quoran teaches this exactly along with oppression of women. I am not saying ALL Muslims are actively killing infidels, but it is exactly what they are being taught.

    broizfam, The Crusades were a response to the Muslim conquest of Christian lands. To argue that the attempted Reconquista of the lands that had also been conquered by the Muslims not long before is more brutal is lame.

    Foolsprussia, if you mean that all of the scientific progress after the fall of the Roman Empire centered in Baghdad, then you would be correct. That doesn`t really prove anything about the topic though. And what ended the dark ages was the crowning of Charlemagne and the establishment of Feudalism. Here you go: You won`t disagree with this.

    Really, the 700 year occupation of Spain was not good for Western development. I mean, really. The occupation of South-Eastern Europe for hundreds of years, condemning it to be the poorest part of Europe was also a bad development. Also, the attempted conquest of France. Good thing they had Martel to defeat that Umayyad Caliphate.

    And the destruction of the very prosperous Byzantine Empire. So much ruined. Greek fire still hasn`t been discovered by modern science. And the conquest and utter assimilation of a number of once prosperous lands in North Africa and the Middle East. These places would be considered Western and developed had they not been conquered by this culture from the Arabian peninsula and the religion they brought with - a culture that is distinct from the traditional Phoenician, Anatolian, and Baghdad cultures that were successful. Tunisia would be speaking both Berber and a Romance language. Maybe it wouldn`t even be so different than Italy.

    The Muslims have been undergoing their "Dark Ages" since their inception. What were once prosperous lands - the very cradle of civilization - have become backwaters.

    gymcoach29, you do understand that the BIBLE teaches fighting, violence and death and destruction to enemies, right?! You do understand that a religion is about how it interprets its holy book, not in the actual words, right?!

    Exodus 2:11-12
    Exodus 9:15-16
    Exodus 23:27
    Deuteronomy 3:21

    So, I wonder if Tim McVeigh, Eric Rudolph, etc., followed those verses? I wonder if I were a wilfully ignorant muffin head living in the Middle East if I would read those verses, look at Tim McVeigh or the killer of Dr. Tiller, and point out how VIOLENT Christianity is?

    @Andrew, I don`t disagree with a lot of what you say. All religions battle their extremist elements, and Islam has had that problem for a long, long time. When Spain was ruled by moderate Muslims and came under attack from the Christians, they had no army, so they were forced to bring in Moroccan mercenaries. The mercenaries with fundamentalists, and hated the culture that they saw in Spain, so they went around destroying a lot of culture there.

    There are countless ways in which Moorish Spain helped Europe, though. There are many tales of Europeans being stunned by the advanced civilization they found in Al-Andalus, and the crusaders themselves brought back a lot of Islamic culture. It`s a very complex relationship, as with all conquest.

    Andrew155,
    The Crusades was a response to what the Christians called Christian lands. Particularly Jerusalem, the birthplace of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, where the crusaders, on entering the city, set about slaughtering Jews and Muslims alike.
    gymcoach29,
    Yes. It was long, long ago. It still points out the horrors that fervent religiosity can provoke. The problem is not that the terrorists of today are (mostly) Muslim fundamentalists, it`s that the terrorists are terrorists. People with Belief (note the capital B!) always seem to find a way to justify killing in the name of their belief, even while spouting Peace. The actual brand of belief really doesn`t matter. I know lovely Christians, Muslims, Jews and atheists as well as a$$hole Christians, Muslims, Jews and atheists.
    Hate the terrorists, not the Muslims they purport to represent.

    I would argue that a lot of the problem with Islam today is due to tribalism. The West did an awful lot of meddling in the Middle East, as in Africa, stuck a lot of groups together, put one group in charge over another, etc. Religion is rarely the root problem, though people like to think it is. People turn to the radical fringe of their religion as a refuge when they feel their people have been wronged. It happens to all religions, because those groups find justification for violence in something that binds their people together (the shared religious faith).

    Bollocks.

    I don`t have anyone killing in my religion, because I don`t have a religion.

    I don`t have any degree of risk of being killed by Christians, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Jews, Wiccans...or followers of any religion other than Islam.

    It`s possible for either Christianity or Islam to be equally bad, but Christianity isn`t currently a serious threat to civilisation and Islam is.

    If I ever invent a time machine, your ranting would have some relevance. I don`t seem to have one to hand, so I`ll just have to live in the present.

    @SmagBoy1: I`d say the "jerk %" varies from 5% > 25%. Thus SOME cultures have 5X as many "jerks" as others. They are NOT ALL EQUAL! Pretending they`re "all equal" is like pretending every human is exactly the same height... useless.

    Speaking of USELESS: quoting the Old Testament Laws to lecture Christians, AGAIN? Isn`t this the 5th time you`ve tried this? It STILL is an EPIC fail.

    @FoolsPrussia: They did manage to preserve some (but far from all) of the advances made by the Greeks (and a few others) BUT Islam also tried to "put Europe to the sword" and drag them back to the 7th century... like the rest of the Muslim Lands. They`re still trying!

    Nice ranting, Nerd Rage, but it does nothing to detract from the fact that you have nothing but strawmen and insults in lieu of argument.

    Oh no, wait, you do have something else. You have an irrelevant command:

    2.Don`t ever try to correlate religion with psychotic tendencies. Ever. EVER.

    Why? Would you kill me if I did, in the name of your god?

    I didn`t correlate religion with psychotic tendencies, but maybe I should do so. There are enough theists who seem eager to promote the connection.

    As far as I know, that`s not true. Judaism is OK with sex in private as long as the people were granted permission to have sex with each by the religious authorities (i.e. are married).

    @Taylor_Stone,

    I didn`t post to incite anything. Really and honestly. I think in general people over simplify the complexity of what`s happening within the Muslim faith. I have friends that I`ve known my whole life who are Muslims and Christians from the Middle East and they`re wonderful people.

    I just feel that so many people over generalize their negatives and this photo is just what it displays.

    A Muslim woman wearing a burka with a South Park print. Which is intentionally making the statement that not all Muslims want to kill or resent Western culture when they make a satirical statement about Allah.

    It`s the people who comment here that are the problem. They`re just argumentative d*cks.

    Thus it`s the same for your pic. She may have NO IDEA what the characters on her scarf represent. It`s possible! Plenty of folks all over the world have NEVER watched "South Park". Or American TV for that matter...

    YOUR ASSUMPTION that she wears the South Park scarf KNOWING that SP blasphemed against Islam (they did! it`s true!) is pure conjecture. Weaksause actually...

    Plus you`re also -assuming- she`s -Muslim- ... as someone else correctly pointed out.

    Please look at the difference between their responses and the IAB commentaries. In the Reddit thread you`ll find muslims, jews, americans, europeans, S.E. asians all making either complimentary statements or jokes.

    Here it`s all closet hatred and double talk. I think a lesson can be learned on tact, facts, speculation, and idiocy.

    @peakingo: If you want to have a nice warm liberal circle-jerk? Stay at Reddit! At IAB people with VARIOUS opinions are (more or less) free to insert their $0.02 into any post.

    So if I`m "a dick" for disagreeing? Then call me Richard!

    From your Reddit link: "Isn`t tumblr mostly white teenagers? Besides, I wouldn`t base my actions off what users from tumblr say anyway, they`re all crazy."

    LOLZ! Reddit users calling tumblr users crazy, oh the irony of it all!

    A good 50% of all comments were "Hurp Durp!" Literally, that`s no joke.

    "Actually South Park isn`t shown in Indonesia. Some of the cool kids download it to practice their English listening skills, but if I had to guess, this woman has no idea what South Park is and just liked the cartoon characters.

    Edit: Wanted to add, for context, that the Simpsons was banned from Indonesian television for violence..."

    Thanks for proving me right.

    So what you`re saying and I`m just clairifying, is that all Christians and Muslims are murdering terrorist... as opposed to charitable terrorist or 1st responders terrorist, or steamboat driving terrorist. So that little old Christian woman who lives down the street is a terrorist. Your Christian family members are terrorists. And though it`s redundant to clarify I`ll follow your lead and emphasize the specification of "murdering terrorist".

    Cool I believe it, you`re right BOY. Seriously, you seem like a 14 year old kid.
