Video Of London Muslim/Arab Demonstrators

Mon Feb 27, 2006 11:55 pm

I suggest that everyone watch as much of this film as possible.

As QR332 would point out, this only represents a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims...But dam does this small minority scare the heck out of me.

whats actually scary is that there will probaly be violent acts against the people who drew those cartoons, just like Van Gough and his documentary. Islam will never recover from this in the eyes of the Western world.......

They don't scare you. They embolden you in your rabid pro-Israeli campaign - the more we make these people look like nutters, the clearer our consciences when we steal their land (Palestine) and resources (Iraq et al).

Why shouldn't they be angry? We keep bombing the shit out of them. They're angry, not crazy. Trying to make them look crazy suits your purposes.

Of course no one made a video of the anti-cartoon marches the next two weekends by 5000 and 10000 by peaceful Muslims who rejected the extremists...

Remember that several prominent British Muslim organizations were calling for the arrest of the extremists with the placards at this crazy demonstration...

But yes, those people are scary, and I some should be tried on incitement charges where a decent legal case can be made.

No, they're angry and crazy. Come on! "We love Osama! We love Osama! We will invade Denmark and take their wives as war booty!" That is crazy, and scary.

Don't make excuses for them. (unless you would make the same excuses for all the idiots driving around the US after 9/11 with "nuke mecca" or "nuke the whole middle east" signs on their pickup trucks). Rjpieces has pretty skewed views about Arabs and Muslims, but it seems you might too in the other direction...

In all fairness, we keep bombing the shit out of the Middle East, not Muslims in the UK. There's no justification for some of the signs we saw. Then again, there's no law against protesting - however stupid that protest may be.

I can't play the video clip on the computer I'm using. So I have a question: approximately how many demonstraters are there? Something tells me this isn't a huge demonstration with thousands (or even hundreds) of people.

Interesting point of view - skewed IMO, but interesting.

They're angry over a cartoon . . . . now - that's crazy. Any damned way you slice it . . .

We aren't bombing the shit out of them . . . I can't recall a single time in history we've bombed the UK.

Speaking of bombing, they've bombed more of their own shit and killed more of their Muslim brothers and sisters recently than any coalition military force . . .

They are crazy . . . just as crazy as the nutjob preacher and his followers here in the states . . . no different. Extremists the lot of 'em.

If you recognize that these people only represent a (very) small percentage of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, why is it you want everyone to watch the video? What's more, how come only a very small group of people is apparently able to scare the sh1t out of you?

Can't you see that you are doing exactly what this tiny minority wants you to do? You're scared sh1tless by a handfull of wackos. Worst of all, this tiny minority is responsable for your everincreasing anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments. It's these few wackos who want a global Holy War and by God/Allah/whatever, you are doing exactly what they want you to do.

What concerns me to a fair degree is the relative 'inaction' of the majority of the Muslims that appear to voice their disagreement with these violent protests, yet fail - apparently - to try to do anything to stop them. In my opinion, that signifies tacet approval of the action while not putting any of the non-extremists 'on the spot' so to speak . . . it can always be said that "Well, maintstream Muslims disagree with this activity". Just a cover their ass tactic.

Well, those things are always scary, but it seems to me that the scariest thing is that we simply don't understand each others. Muslims didn't understand Scandinavian sarcasm in those cartoons, West didn't understand why are Muslims angry about and most of all, West didn't understand the level of violence in those protests, so the vicious circle is opened and can go on and on and on as long as somebody tries to understand the other side.....

There is clearly an issue. But it's not as black and white as some here make out. Locking people up for what they say and think will only push people further towards the extreme end of the scale. Unless there's a clear and frank debate with the Muslim community, nothing will change for the better. Further alienation will help no one.

Definately not, the step is bigger than you're implying. Faith schools are perhaps the biggest cause of religious intollerance amongst young people. Kids don't listen to their parents, they listen to their peers. When their peers are taught that Islam/Christianity/whatever is the faith, then we get the type of jingoistic racist nonsense (from all sides) that we see now.

My views are a product mainly of my education, I think. If anything, growing up in Bradford (pretty segregated population, race riots) would give me views on the right. I think it's quite bizarre that because I defend freedom of speech I must be of Muslim ethnic origin?

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 34):

Oh yes agreed but on the other hand you shouldn't be aloud to incite racial hatred which I know you will agree with. Of course the protests aren't supported by the majority and it is a minority issue.

This shows clearly the ludicrous nature of incitement laws. What's inciteful to me isn't to you.

A video of tons of Muslims screaming for more terrorist attacks in the West, and I am accused of being anti-Arab?

Time and time again the posts you start bitch about Arabs and Muslims.

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 34):

No children are sponges and will listen to anybody with authority.

But views that continue into adulthood come mainly from peers. The views of the London suicide bombers weren't generally reflected by their parents, who were generally aghast that their kids would go to such lengths. While their parents might have been negligent to raise kids so suceptable to radical views, they got those views from their peers, not parents.

What I think the Muslim majority should do, is to accept or at least deal with the very loud minority!
I am tired of people feeling acused by us, saying Islam does not make terrorists and so on, while these parade away saying the exact oposite, WHILE BEING MUSLIM...

It is really hard to not notice those who openly spew hatred and promote death to anyone less than wahab Muslim.

As I asked UAE 773 or what his name was, if we misunderstand or exaggerate, then how should these placards be understood or translated. How would a Muslim country react if this was the opposite situation!
There would be massive decapitations that is for sure...

the more we make these people look like nutters, the clearer our consciences when we steal their land (Palestine) and resources (Iraq et al).

Nobody is making them look like nutters. They are doing a fine job all by themselves, without any help from anyone.

Quoting Cedarjet (Reply 2):
Why shouldn't they be angry? We keep bombing the shit out of them.

And who started the bombing, pray tell?

Granted, the protest in the film was a pretty small one. I saw maybe a hundred or so of them, and not all seemed particularly happy with some of the more inflammatory stuff. But if I were a Muslim in that crowd, I would have beaten the crap out of the asswipe who started yelling "Osama, we love you!". I would be punching him while telling him that he and those like him are the reason why other Muslims and Arabs are mistrusted, and are accepted by host societies with difficulty, and why Arab businesses get harsher treatment around the world, like the US port deal.

There will only be peace when a massive majority of the muslim and arab populations declare their unequivocal rejection of terrorists and their methods.

i have no mistrust for muslims or arabs, thanks all the same. the people who do mistrust 1.3 billion on the actions of a few are narrow minded ignorant fools, nothing more. nothing less. until they realize that ...

America has the Neo Nazis and KKK.

Britain has the BNP and roy chubby brown.

the Muslim world has their extremists. just the same way the aforementioned groups are minority's not supported by the rest, the Muslim extremists are not supported by the majority.

then they will continue to be narrow minded, ignorant, fools.

Well said Gary. When religious and racial tension is high, it is all too easy to generalise, stereotype and lump everyone in the same category. Unfortunately it is a commom attribute amongst a lot of users on this forum and elsewhere. I will make no attempt to defend the disgraceful behaviour of a minority fanatical muslims holding these placards at the demo, they are damaging the reputation of good muslims. But at the same time i cannot and will not accept my character being assasinated because of the actions of a few. There are more 1.6 million muslims in the UK, but all it takes is for a few hundred to take to the streets with violent placards for people to view you with suspicion and put all the blame on you.
