Instead of taking out ISIS and terrorists in their country, UK police are policing Twitter. Sad.

Here's the primary difference.

I can choose whether or not I jump out of airplanes.

Black women need to stop straightening their hair. And lightening it.

They are stealing from me!

The Media needs to stop mistaking Sikhs for Muslims, as several outlets, including Cosmopolitan, did the other day.

Such a tragedy.

Don't #PrayForManchester. Say #NoMoreManchesters

We tried these tactics repeatedly and they demonstrably don't work:

@Dan you're the only one losing his temper, the only one name calling. Be delusional if you want, but the likes on this thread show you in the minority.

#DanSJWTriggered

@Patrick, I prefer to leave Dan's attacks on the thread. They prove who he really is, easily triggered, and intolerant.

Dan8267 says

Who is more likely to convert to Islam, one who already believes in an all-powerful god and moral figure or an atheist who finds the idea of the supernatural ridiculous?

***

Remember, Islam would not even exist if not for Judaism and Christianity.

Dan, about the history, you are right: the charlatan Mohamadman hijacked the Abrahamic tradition much as the 9/11 hijackers hijacked 767's. Also, at the individual level, you are right again: individual Christians can be converted to Islam more readily than atheists can.

OTOH, at the societal level, the empirical data seem to contradict your claim. As Patrick and 2Scoops pointed out, the comparatively more secular western European and left-leaning populations appear more vulnerable to hijrah. Sam Harris explained a likely reason: most secularists fail to understand how the world looks to a sincerely religious person. I've been lucky to know many religious people, and I can tell you that they believe. To the secular left, a religious label seems like a fashion label, but to sincerely religious people, religion defines the origin and ultimate purpose of life itself. As a result, secular societies appear more vulnerable to the delusion that radically antagonistic religions can "coexist", even when they can't. I wish that atheists in general could see that Islam says to kill them and importing believers is problematic, but surprisingly many refuse to see that really obvious fact, even when Muslims say so openly and refer to it on official flags that fly brazenly around the world.

None so blind as those who will not see.

Here is the flag of Saudi Arabia. For those who can't read Arabic, it states the Shehada: "There is no god but Allah, Mohamed is his prophet." They underline that statement with a sword, like the sword they would use to cut off your head. They call atheists terrorists, because even questioning the fundamentals of Islam undermines the foundation of their government.

Strategist says

Yup. Problem solved. Thank You guys. I'll nominate you for the peace prize.

How ironic given your username that you don't distinguish strategy from tactics.

You presented neither strategy nor tactic. You presented a dream that has never come true in the 1,400 years of Islamic history. While your kind waits, millions suffer human rights abuse, torture, death, and terrorism.

Keep dreaming. Trump may be a buffoon, but he was the only candidate speaking to the needs of the people in 2016. Thus he was elected. I think those needs won't have switched from jobs, security, and freedom to globalism, importing Muslim barbarians, and revoking freedoms by 2018.
As bad as Trump is, remember that he easily defeated Hillary in the election. Imagine if either 1)Trump gets better at being Presidential, or 2)a better candidate emerges to head the GOP? Democrats will continue to lose "bigly" until they change their party platform

All of a sudden, Trump's travel ban to evaluate the safety of immigrant vetting doesn't seem far out of left field.

We take the risk of driving because the benefits outweighs the risk. Unless Muslim immigration brings enormous benefits to society, I don't see why we should not reduce risk of more terrorist attacks.

Can't make this shit up. This is where uber Liberal Progressivism leads.

errc says

What do terrorists want?

Sharia and an Islamic State.


Good Question.


The Leader of ISIS is a highly trained PhD in Islamic Studies who went to the best Religious Universities in the Islamic World.

It's as if some PhD in New Testament Studies from Harvard, who got his Bachelor's and Master's in Theology at Duke, "Doesn't really understand Christianity"

TwoScoopsMcGee says

Good lord, now that is unfair.

The guy is obviously a Sikh from a mile away, and Sikhism came into existence mostly as a reaction to repeated Islamic slaughter of Hindus in India.

Sikhs run charities for everyone, like the free food in every Sikh temple, so it makes sense that a Sikh would be charitable with his taxi.

Muslims run charities for no one but Muslims.
