"All religious violence is objectionable. And even if we accept your proposition that islamic terrorism is rare - even one instance should be sufficient for the muslim community to condemn religious terrorism unequivocally. But I do not accept…"

"Lies. Dirty lies. Sectarian violence is not systemic and wide spread. It is virtually non-existent in most Muslim countries. It is a rarity in Malaysia, Zanzibar, Morrocco, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Djibouti, Qatar,  Albania, UAE, Kyrgistan, Oman,…"

"islam has become associated with terrorism for the simple reason that very many acts of terrorism are done in the name of islam. This religious terrorism and violence is systematic and widespread. If, as a muslim, you wish not to be associated with…"

"Most DO oppose religious violence, just as MOST Christians oppose the actions of the Westboro Baptist Church and so forth. Again, its arbitrarily grouping people as you see fit, and then demanding them to agree upon membership in your assigned…"

"What do you mean by contributing to it? If you pray to Allah in an ordinary mosque in Western China, does that contribute to suicide bombings by Saudi terrorists in Europe? If you read the Koran in the Phillippines, does that contribute to honour…"

"No. I'd prefer that we round up ALL groups of sociopathic psychopaths and drop them all off on Pitcairn Island (it is remote and was the location of chronic child abuse). They can test out their new ideologies on one another and set up whatever…"

"I have a crazy extreme idea: Instead of killing ISIS, let's round them up and accumulate some hoards (say) at GITMO, then parachute them into strategic areas of North Korea. Whoops, on second thought... instead of fighting to the death, they…"

"Given that: - muslims have a huge variety of ethnic, cultural and sociological backgrounds; and - given that in some cases they share a bare minimum of an ideology, does that absolve them from contributing to a solution? Does it prevent them from…"
