Danish "problem": What Really Offends Me!

Do you want to know what I find really offensive:

A bunch of Islamic extremists cutting off the head of a westerner while shouting "Allah is the greatest" (I saw the full Nick Berg video)

Did the Islamic "silent majority" feel offended by that? I don't remember many Muslims condemning that "incident".

Why is the Islamic world not offended by all these Islamic terrorists that kill thousands of people in Allah's name and while shouting Allah's name?

It's getting harder every day to differentiate between Muslim fundamentalist terrorists and the silent majority of good, friendly Muslims when you see the Arabic world's reaction to a few stupid cartoons in contrast to their silence when their own terrorists abuse Allah's name.

Where is this going to end? I don't know, but I am fearing that WW III is getting closer and if that happens it's not going to be pretty!

How can people get so brainwashed with religion that they are willing to kill others and themselves for a god that they cannot prove exists. Religion is just that: something people BELIEVE but cannot prove.

By the way: it's not only the fundamentalist Muslims that scare the hell out of me. A lot of religious Americans are getting very close to being fundamentalist themselves. That's just as dangerous, even if they don't realize it themselves.

I am an atheist myself, but I will respect any religious person that is looking for peace.

IF ONLY PEOPLE WOULD THINK MORE AND LISTEN TO THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE INSTEAD OF BLINDLY DOING THAT WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD THEIR GOD WANTS FROM THEM, the world would be better off!

You hit it on the head. While there is fundamentalism amongst a minority in every religion, the moderate majority tends to keep it under check and prevents it from getting out of control. Sadly, this doesn't seem to be happening in Islam. The mad mullah types carry out the most unpardonable atrocities while the moderates don't say a thing.



Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

The US is not becoming any more fundamentalist. Here's the deal with the US. The majority of people that vote are old retirees, and as you move down the age bracket, the less individuals are voting. Old people = conservative religious WASPs. Politicians cater to that conservativism.

I live in Oklahoma, one of the most conservative states in the US. There is a HUGE difference in young people vs. old people here.

In other words, we are becoming more liberal, just give it time. The religious fundies aren't going to rule for much longer.

Then you weren't paying attention. Each of the executions has been met by a wave of revulsion and condemnation around the Muslim world. More to the point, time and again many Muslim clerics have headed off to Iraq from Britain, the US and other countries to try to plead with the kidnappers for the lives of the victims - "doing something about it" as you would no doubt put it. It's all in the news if you look for it. Sadly, it seems that many do not want to hear.

This is slightly off topic, but sometimes it seems like the whole region is full of stupid sheep looking for trouble. You're probably all aware of the ferry that sank a few days ago. Here are a few quotes from CNN:

"The rioters took a large photo of one of the company's ferries and burned it in the middle of the road. They also tore down the company's signboard from the front of the building and set it on fire."

"protesters shouted angrily at police and criticized Egypt's president for not providing more information. On Saturday, similar demonstrations turned violent as family members threw stones at police."

I'm also currently watching BBC World and noticed that relatives tried to invade a hospital the injured were being treated in.

Can't anything happen over there without mass riots? Who in their right mind thinks that trying to enter an overloaded hospital by force just to see a relative is smart? Why do differences of opinion always involve burning stuff?? In short: What the fuck?

Perhaps so. But little in the way of preventative action - unless there is something to be gained for the moderate Muslim. Sending Muslim leaders on 'missions' to save hostages is not enough. THe 'moderate' Muslim world we are constantly referred to need to take action against the extremism among their own people.

That was surprisingly subdued given the horror and hate of these crimes though.

I will not accept double standards of tolerance for different religions. Caricature is part of human creation, and should be tolerated by all. Period.

I DO want to hear, Banco! I'd be interested to read some news articles about that. Could you provide some links to this news, because I couldn't find any!

I did find links about fatwahs being issued by religious Muslim leaders. Can you begin to imagine that a pope, a cardinal or priest would issue some kind of death sentence in the name of God? The idea alone is ridiculous, but it's happening all the time in the Muslim world.

Can Muslims be amazed if the west is getting more and more prejudiced about the Muslims and their religion?

Should people respect other religions? OF COURSE, but when violence is preached by the extremists it is high time that the moderate stand up and strongly condemn such words.

To be fair, there are several initiatives being made by moderate muslims here in Denmark to combat some of the treacherous anti-Danish imams who went around the Middle East with their rhetorical matches, igniting the flames of ignorance and hatred.

We must also support our fellow muslim Danes who are loyal to our country and appalled by this whole mess, and wants nothing more than to live a normal life.

Liberal and moderate muslims keep quiet probably because they realize that if they speak out, they will also be attacked.

That's sad but I tend to agree.

I feel ashamed for the "moderate" muslims who don't support the freedom of speech and the right to be different than them.
The time of a religious/cultural conflict between the western world and the muslim world is getting nearer it seems.

We should NEVER let them say what we should do. Especially when it comes from inside.
Contrary to satiric cartoons, incitation to murder is not legal (at least in France) and those who dared in GB to threaten violently the EU should be prosecuted immediately and endure a severe sentence of jail.

No mercy with the extremists !!!

So what? The USA kill thousands of people in God's name. What's the difference?

It's true that Bush has "God" in his mouth for every military aggression. He also talked about "crusades".
He is partly responsible of the growing tension between Muslims and Westerners.

But the difference stands in the means. Americans, whilst very brutal in Irak, try not to kill blindly, and they have the "excuse" of the shock of the 11 September.
Muslims in general have no excuse as it's not a country.

I agree with that. Politics does not mix well with religion. It is vital that states stay secular.

Quoting Sebolino (Reply 19):

That cannot be used as excuse! 9/11 was a terrorist act by a group of extremists. You can't punish a country or a group of people for the acts of terrorist. Every human, Muslims in the first place, should condemn violence and fundamentalism.

Quoting Sebolino (Reply 19):

Muslimhood unites people of different countries. It's understandable that they defend their interest as a group. Defense should never turn into terrorism though.

That is how they live. People allways look to the outrage in the muslim world and say "oh, it is because Israel is so oppressive that they act like animals..." or "oh, it is because the U.S. bombed Iraq or sent troops to Saudi Arabia that they act like this..." the truth is that they just act like this.

Why are there violent protests all the time in the Arab world regardless of the issue (even against their own)
Why is there a stampede that kills hundreds every year in Mecca?

Why? Because this is how they are. It is part of the culture and we need to either accept that or do something about it. What that something is, I have no idea but "invading their countries, killing their leaders and converting them to christianity" does not seem like the answer to me.

Dear Pbottenb, you are absolutely right.

It is sickening to see just every problem on planet earth turned into a US problem when it is not.

The US government has treated this issue exactly as they should.

(Just for the record, since yesterday there are a lot of Danish flags here on a.net (thanks for that). My Danish flag is 6 years old on this forum. I'm in the middle of it all, I know it all. All way, also the events pre 30 September last year).

The US and Denmark stand shoulder to shoulder in several issues, Afghanistan, Iraq, and also this one. The US has the ownership to the Afghanistan and Iraq events (non-US assistance appreciated), but this one is ours (non-Danish assistance appreciated).

It is not reported in the world press, but Mrs. Condolesa Rise has been a terrific partner for our foreign minister Mr. Per Stig Moller.

I dont see the connection between the few terrorists you are mentioning and the muslim population in general.
