Some one explain please!
I was raised to call things as they are and she is doing a pretty good job of exposing Islam for what it is.
It's simple: there are a billion followers of Islam. Most are peaceful and normal, some are not.
People like her, and like you, point to the very worst of them and declare such to be the standard that all should be judged by. She goes out of her way to degrade them, insult them, belittle them, and not just them, but everything they believe in.
Let me "call things as they are" for a moment:
I've got a buddy who used to live in Ireland. About four or five years ago, during a time of relative peace between the Catholics and Protestants, some radicals used the house next to his to torture someone to death with an electric drill. I have no idea if they were Catholic or Protestant, and really it doesn't matter. Know why? Because of the billion Catholics and Protestants out there, the fraction of them who drill people's eyeballs out is incredibly low, and not indicative of their beliefs at large.
I've got friends who have gone over to the Middle East. It's a mess over there. It's kinda like how bad Europe was when my ancestors left there, when owning a Bible in the wrong language could get you burned to death
. That seems like a rather silly thing, really, burning people to death for having a Latin or English Bible. Yet, wouldn't you know it, they did it.
Here in America, half of my ancestors were expelled from the United States for belonging to the wrong Christian religion. The other half, about twenty years later, had everything they owned burned to the ground by troops who marched to war singing "Battle Hymn of the Republic", which is a great song (don't get me wrong), but it's not exactly subtle about it's religious tone. Of course, that war wasn't about one religion or another, yet religious they were, and destruction they did wrought.
Later on, I had other ancestors go to war in Europe because, wouldn't you know it, turns out Christians fight each other in other nations too. When they got there, they found that one group that was overwhelmingly Christian put a bunch of Jews in ovens. Not a very Christian act, one might say.
My point, of course, isn't to bash Christians, especially since I consider myself to be one. My point is that regardless of religion, horrible people do horrible things. Similar stories could be shared from every other major religion out there, and probably most of the minor ones as well.
People like her, who constantly find the need to degrade, insult, and spit upon the religious beliefs of Muslims, are the definition of bigots. They ignore their own history, both distant and modern, while writing off hundreds of millions based upon the actions of a very few. They are either liars and hypocrites, doing this for attention, sport, or personal gain, or they are so deluded that they can't really be accused of lying, in which case they are wing nuts.
I think the forum gave her a great benefit of the doubt by calling her such. When left with the choice of "this person is malicious for self serving reasons", and "this person is too stupid to realize how idiotic what they are saying and doing actually is", we gave her the benefit of the doubt.
Going after the religion, slapping the "Religion of Peace" label on every terrorist attack (regardless of whether it fits), insulting hundreds of millions and judging their faith based upon the very worst they have to offer?
That is classless, it is bigoted, it is the verbal manifestation of everything wrong with humanity. Anyone who wouldn't be "embarrassed" by such is so outside the norm of human decency, that one can't help but wonder what ever happened to their sense of shame.
