"Religion of peace" my ass

They're at it again, these so called "peaceful" muslims. Why does the world tolerate this?

KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) -- A suicide attacker detonated a bomb during an outdoor Islamic prayer service Tuesday, killing at least 41 people and wounding dozens, police said. An angry mob burned cars and threw stones at police, who fired into the air to disperse the crowds, a witness said.

Someone needs to sit these assholes down and say Look, you claim to be peaceful and tolerant, and yet you kill innocent people every day like it's going out of style. Either put your houses in order, or we (as in the world) will do it for you.

I know I'll catch hell for this, but I'm beginning to believe there's some truth to the new addage that Not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslims. These people are an afront to the rest of the human race.

And where is the outcry from the international Islamic community, those muslims throughout Europe and Asia who are peacefully moving through their daily lives? Do you realize how pathetic these people make you look? Is this the legacy you want attached to Islam for the rest of eternity?

I won't pretend that other religions haven't had their problems. Pope Pius XII turned a blind eye to the Third Reich's brutality during World War II. However, there's no evidence that shows people went out of their way to burn Jews by the millions in Nazi death camps in the name of Catholicism, but the same cannot be said of the islamic extremists in the middle east today.

Anyone want to count the seconds until some twit on television declares this act of violence as yet another side effect of decades of U.S. foreign policy?

When hell is thrown your way... just duck and cover.

Apparently killing each other is a great idea, and frankly I'm sick of trying to make sense of any of it.

Kwaies (Good For you), you get an "A" for poor generalizations. Why would you lump peaceful muslims and non-peaceful muslims in the same rhetorical satire. Do you realize you are talking about over 1.1 Billion Muslims (World Almanac 1997).

Think about it, if all the Muslims in the world are non-peaceful... you might not want to write articles like this. However, since most Muslim's are very peaceful go on ahead and insult us... we forgive you.

Listen... today the West seems to be outraged by 41 deaths, but cheered for their leaders when the following things were accomplished for the sake of their interests:

20,000,000–62,000,000 - Stalin's regime (1924-53)

50,000,000–60,000,000 - African and Atlantic slave trade

5,000,000–12,000,000 - Nazi (Don't forget the Nazi's were Protestants)

2,000,000–100,000,000 - Destruction of Native Americans (after 1492)

Do I need to go on? Don't take it personal, I was just bothered by your comment it seemed poorly thought out, thats all.

*I expect this comment will be moderated.

Al-hakim, you obviously didn't read my post very well. Go back and look again...specifically the paragraph that began "And where is the outcry from the international Islamic community, those muslims throughout Europe and Asia who are PEACEFULLY moving through their daily lives?". I laid down the challenge then, and I stand by it. Where is the outcry from your people? Why aren't you policing your own? Why do your brothers and sisters continue to blow themselves up in the name of Allah? You cited a laundry list of other atrocities that mankind has perpetrated upon itself. Those among you who continue this tradition are no different than any of them.
