Alg Posted January 15, 2015 Share Posted January 15, 2015 The fact that these individuals participated / orchestrated Islamic terrorism is proof that Muslim extremism isn't socioeconomically motivated? Utter nonsense. All muslim extremists are muslims, but I'd suppose you'd tell me religion has nothing to do with it either. Anyhow, I'm failing to see a point in what you're arguing, other than your first post where you wrote that you shouldn't poke an angry bear with a stick.I'd imagine that the point is that, while all Muslim extremists are Muslims, not all Muslims are extremists. Sweeping generalizations based on the actions of extremists only hurt those that aren't, and arguing that religion is the sole cause is both massively prejudiced* and insultingly lazy. Do we need a refresher on the cold war, just to bring up one of the most recent examples...? *especially when Gabe was called out for having done just that before this thread started I painted some stuff and put it on tumblr Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
