Defend Islam

I would be interested in arguments for the merits of Islam and/or why any non-Moslem would consider it a good thing if more Moslems lived in their town or neighborhood.

Back to the original intent of the thread. I read this summary of the Pew research study from 2013.
A couple of things jump out at me:
(1) There is a huge diversity of views within various Muslim communities. For example, in five of the countries, the percent of Muslims who wanted Sharia law to be the official law was 8-12%. In Afghanistan, it is 99%. In many other countries, it's more than 80%.
This supports my assertion that individuals tend to go along with whatever their peers believe. The beliefs of the masses can be set top down (from religious leaders) or bottom up (putting pressure on religious leaders to conform), but they are not strictly tied to a book. This applies to both Christianity and Islam.

(2) Many dislike or are worried about ISIS.

that most people in several countries with significant Muslim populations have an unfavorable view of ISIS, including virtually all respondents in Lebanon and 94% in Jordan.
...
In many cases, people in countries with large Muslim populations are as concerned as Western nations about the threat of Islamic extremism, and have become increasingly concerned in recent years. About two-thirds of people in Nigeria (68%) and Lebanon (67%) said in 2016 that they are very concerned about Islamic extremism in their country, both up significantly since 2013.
...
Our 2011 survey of Muslim Americans found that roughly half of U.S. Muslims (48%) say their own religious leaders have not done enough to speak out against Islamic extremists.

This supports my assertion that what ISIS says reflects what ISIS believes. It doesn't reflect what most Muslims around the world believe.

(3) Muslim religiosity in the US is about the same as Christian religiosity.

What this means is that in a secular country with a low Muslim population, most Muslims do not believe it's their way or the highway. About 30 to 35% of the people in each religion think that theirs is the only true faith. Muslims in the US are even coming around on homosexuality. Now, 39% think it should be accepted in society.

Now, I don't think this means that Muslims in an Islamic country would accept me or treat me well. I fully realize that there are plenty who would behead an atheist like me. Many of these countries are living in the Islamic dark ages, and I'd never go there. In others, I'd go, but not waive an atheist flag, and I'd never live there. My biggest concern about importing a huge number of Muslims into the US is that in large enough numbers they'd try to bring us down into that mindset. It's bad enough that we have so many Christians who are denying science because of their beliefs. We don't need some even more backwards beliefs to overcome. But that doesn't mean that we need a religious test on all immigrants either.

Obviously, being religious doesn't mean that someone wants to kill all blasphemers and apostates. But one who wants to kill all blasphemers and apostates has to first be religious.

It's hard to imagine that someone wants to kill blasphemers when they don't even think that their religion is the one true faith. That's just nonsensical. So, part 3 is of interest to our debate about how to address Islam in the West. There are about 2 million Muslims who currently live in the US and think that Christianity is a true religion. Should we be trying to convince them that the Koran tells them to kill us?

What this means is that

you're cherry picking statistics to support your prior assertion, and allowing yourself to lose sight of the forest for the trees, like a tobacco executive trying to minimize the hazards of smoking. "Look, most smokers die from something other than smoking, pay no attention to the causal links between smoking and cancer, emphysema, hypertension, stroke, etc."

A large percentage of American "Muslims" are what might be called Kwanzaa black power and/or black nationalists: Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan (who seems to be drifting towards "Christian Science"), etc. For them, Islam was primarily about black identity and getting out from under what Nietzsche would call the 'slave morality' of Christianity. Their views on homosexuality adjusted somewhat due to President Obama and Attorney General Holder saying that gay couples have a Constitutional right to get married. If you want to see what happens in secular countries when you import actual Muslims from Muslim families in Muslim countries, look at the British Muslims, who are getting worse, the younger being more intolerant than the old. The other secular countries on the Pew list had officially atheist governments during the Soviet era, and Turkey which was crushed in and after WWI and made briefly secular by Ataturk but is now already backsliding. Like the black "Muslims" came from mostly Christian families, Muslims in officially atheist countries had plenty of atheist friends and family. That doesn't last when you get too many Muslims around, especially in the information age where the Sharia patrols can pick off the disbelievers one by one. The gravity of Islam re-asserts itself, dragging everyone down either to Islam or the grave.

We had a similar interaction regarding education and wealth increasing the risk of Muslim terrorism. You kept insisting the opposite, based on wishful opinion and contrary to data. It felt like reading someone insist that smoking reduces the risk of CV problems due to relaxing people so they feel less stress. You cling to a cherished fantasy and try to cherry pick data supporting it. You've been apparently hypnotized into ignoring the basic fact: you are worse off if you have more people around who believe that you must be killed and who are likely to teach their children to kill you and yours.

Dog experts say that you never really know your dog until you see your dog with at least six other dogs. Then you see the pack behavior. You can't possibly know what Islam says and does because (a) you refuse to read what it says and (b) you refuse to look at a map and see the overwhelming correlations. 100% of the countries on earth that criminalize apostasy have Muslim majorities. 100% of the countries on earth that have marriage equality have Christian majorities. You quote out of context that some Muslims consider Christianity in some sense true, which ignores the role of subjugated dhimmi in Islam: the charlatan Mohamed hijacked the god of Abraham and told his followers to subjugate the Christians and ultimately kill the Jews; of course some Muslims can acknowledge some truth in Christianity, just as hijackers can acknowledge the utility of a 767. You opine from ignorance and wishful thinking, not evidence and reason.

As for limiting immigration, we have not had open borders in more than a century. We limit immigration continuously. We are deporting illegal immigrants right now, but most of them are Christian. The Democrats campaigned on paying to import Muslims. You would exclude the vast majority of the human race but allow the one subset that believes they are personally commanded to kill you, and to teach their children to kill you. That is hypnosis performed by people highly paid to mislead you, functioning like toxoplasma gondii leads mice to cats. It is not compassion, not "liberal."

As for Hillary Clinton, countless YouTube mashups show she has a long record of saying whatever she believes will be to her advantage. Her Saudi and corporate clients paid her and her family and their foundation tens of millions of reasons to go along with their agenda.

I went with the data that were available in my limited research. That's not cherry picking. The data were not exhaustive, but were enough to prove my point. curious2 says

Your failure to quantify anything is a problem. Clinton suggested that we admit 65,000 syrians on top of the 100K non-syrians we admit each year. I would presume that the majority would be Muslim. You seem to conclude that that is enough to turn us into Sharialand. You present no evidence for this. To me, that seemed like a reasonable approach. I never advocated it, mind you. I was happy with Obama's approach, and think that Trump's approach is counterproductive. Time will tell.

WTF? Make shit up much? The whole country's views changed on Homosexuality during the last 8 years. These things change quickly, because people go along with society. They don't like to rock the boat. Do you assume that all of the white people changed their minds based on analysis, but the black Muslims just do what Obama and Holder told them to do?curious2 says

You might have me confused with Marcus. As for my own arguments on that, I'd say that the US bombing (killing) and making people poorer in other countries might contribute to terrorism. But I don't confuse the wealth of the actual terrorist leader with the quality of life of his tribe. If I were a rich terrorist or religious huckster, poor people would be a fertile recruiting ground. Why don't you look at the wealth of most ISIS members, and report back about how rich they are. Those are also not the sole control nobs for terrorism, either.

The problem with Islam is that it is an infectious mental disorder, which not only demands that its followers kill you and your family, but also aggressively attempts to infect as many people as possible with the same ultra-violent behavior.

The most clever part is that if YesYNot says "yes why not?" and joins Islam, then he will be exempt from being murdered, conditional on proving the sincerity of his conversion, the best test of which is that he himself has become eager to murder non-Muslims.

It is analogous to importing 65,000 stray dogs with rabies and letting them loose, because you know, rabies is latent at first, and the animal does not want to bite you right away. Might even be grateful for food and water, at first. Importing only the ones that are not yet foaming at the mouth is not a wonderful way to protect yourself.

Think about that. How many people voted for Jill Stein or Bill Weld. Now add them together.

Half of all British Muslims thought the extreme "Hate Preachers" practice "Mainstream Islam" and a quarter thought the Charlie Hebdo massacre was justified.

WOW.

Do you know how many assassinations related to abortion there have been since 1990? Ten (10). In almost 30 years, and most of them were in the 90s.

More people were murdered in San Ber or in Orlando in each event singly, than 3 decades of anti-abortion violence. And while the abortion murderers were recruited from a pool of about 200 Million, and the vast majority of the population by religion and race, the Islamic Terrorists in past couple of years came from about 1% of the entire US population.

No, you are obviously much smarter than Marcus, even though you do share a tendency to elevate favored opinion over observable evidence, at least on this point. Here is the comment I was referring to. I know all too many Democrats who are basically hypnotized by people who are highly paid to mislead them. "60 Minutes" had a report recently studying "fake news" and who falls for it, and on the left the biggest risk factors were college degrees and affluence. That report was primarily about totally fake news, but included the sensationalizing and polarizing that Mark Zuckerberg wrote about, where people echo a preferred subset of facts instead of looking at overall data. I've seen it IRL with friends who refuse categorically to read anything other than the false or misleading Gospel according to the BS networks (CBS, PBS, etc.). If the multi-million-dollar/yr anchor said something happened and we must go to war over it, they're all for it. If the anchor didn't say it, then it didn't happen. They put their fingers to the wind, and opine popularly within their chosen partisan/sectarian tribe; they don't actually read data.

At least we are consistent. You were quoting this thread where I wrote:

but describes 3 types of ISIS fighters. Foreign psychopaths, true believers, and pragmatists. The pragmatists make up the majority of ISIS fighters, and are basically going along the path of least resistance.

The point being that a lot of people just go along to get along.

As for the rest of your comment, it's ironic that you cite 60 minutes to complain about 30-50 yr old democrats believing what they hear on (CBS, etc.). That aside, there's nothing there. I could cite a bunch of articles showing that Trump voters were more likely to believe fake news, and you know it.

I'll leave with this: YesYNot doesn't mean that I'm going to join a psychopathic group. It means yes, go ahead and take a risk. Contrary to curious2's comments about me or my cohort not reading data, the reason that I'm willing to take on the risk of 65K syrian refugees is that I've calculated the risk based on our Muslim immigrant data to date. The risk is really fucking small, and there are way more important things to fixate on. Patrick says

Islam is that it is an infectious mental disorder

All religions are a infectious diseases. Islam just happens to be invoked as a reason for violence at the moment, and is generally in a terrible state.

Fortunately, Christians just make you suffer through a 'thank you Jesus' sermon or two before you eat. I'm going to write a grace where I thank the heavenly father who art in heaven for all of the atheists who show us that empathy, morality, and kindness are human characteristics and do not require external rules and thank him for providing all of the scientists to show us that the earth is round and revolves around the sun, that the earth is not 6000 years old, and that co2, ch4, and nitrous oxide are causing global warming.

no matter how many other people get killed, and no matter how much it costs, so long as (a) the risk to you personally appears small and (b) deficit spending enables you to push the cost (along with the fatalities) onto your kids and others'. Your ivory tower fortress is presumably not Ohio State.

Meanwhile, you don't even let Christians come here at their own expense, nor Hindus nor Buddhists, because you don't care about other people unless Saudi Arabia pays your preferred politicians to advocate on their behalf. The only reason to pay to import Muslims, while paying to deport everyone else, is to spread Islam and the mass surveillance of the whole population that Muslims end up requiring. Hillary Clinton acknowledged candidly her views on this point, and I can see millions of reasons why she would agree to believe them: the agenda serves her Saudi and MIC clients, at the expense of everyone else. If you've been paid anything less than she got, you were shortchanged.

Thank you for clarifying those points, but please don't call them "liberal."

No, tell them to go to Saudi Arabia. Why would you want to send money to people who believe you must be killed? Part of the problem over there is NATO and KSA financing Sunni militias, which we should stop. If you want them to kill you, maybe you should go there instead of sending them money or bringing them here.

It might not be a bad idea if they get Sam Harris videos 24/7 translated into their language, Charlie Hebdo cartoons for the kids, and whatever else it takes to keep out the jihadis. Otherwise UN "refugee" camp survivors have reported being abused and harassed and threatened by jihadis for being insufficiently Islamic, and Christians can't even go to those camps lest they be killed. President Assad is protecting the Christians and Shia, and secularists. If we pay for "safe areas," in addition to paying for the bombs and militias that create the need for safe areas, then we're simply paying every which way to subsidize Islam. It's a revenue model, not a winning strategy.

But your comment does at least expose the myth of "helping" people by exiling them to the other side of the planet, when it would be cheaper and better for them to shelter near their homes. Of course, it would also be better for us to end the war currently being waged by us and our allies, but that would disrupt MIC revenue and Saudi plans. The refugees were only ever pawns in a larger game to spread jihad and mass surveillance.

Also: I can't embed it here, but this is a call into the Katie Hopkins Program from a woman whose husband worked with refugees:

Jessica added that it was the way male migrants behaved in particular, that led to his change of heart.

She told Katie: "It was a really, really traumatic time for him. He was doing three-week stints and they were picking bodies out of the sea. Babies, women, it was awful.

"But at the same time, he said they were processing men, adults, in their 30s who all had phones with Isis stuff on the phones, they were being separated.

"When they were being handed over to the authorities with the information explaining that these guys had all this on their phones, and what their ages were, and they were just being processed through.

"There was nothing, they were just being separated out, they just all went through with everything else, it broke his heart, because he was dealing with families who were in such a terrible state with young babies who so clearly needed rescuing.

"And yet you had adult males that were pushing women and children to the back of the queue...they felt that they were more important.
It's just an awful situation, and this was last year.
...

"He's now turning into someone I don't recognise, because of what he has physically seen. He is starting to say this is not all people looking for help, there are people here who are out for their own self interest."

She added: "It's just awful. And now he is building a hatred of a certain demograph[ic], that he has been exposed to because he's seen the way they behave."

The way she described it, it seems like the vetting would be easy. Just pluck out the 30 yr old guys with cell phones pushing their way to the front. Put them on a boat, and drop them on an island. Take the shell shocked ones who have been missing meals and check in on their mental state. I'd imagine it would be harder than that.

But they don't, as she stated. They simply waved them on. This is not all dissimilar from other refugee Crisis elsewhere, like in Africa.

This is the "Process" problem. Sometimes the Process is not used. Defense Attorneys in Civil Suits often present their big binder stored processes written down, and lose their case, because the plaintiff can show that the process either isn't followed or was never actually followed and was just something to bring out in case of a lawsuit.

That's why I snicker when I hear about "Process".

Bavarian police are trying to establish the motive

oh FFS...

behind the murder of an Afghan woman who sought refuge in Germany and has reportedly converted to Christianity. The attacker, also an Afghan asylum seeker, stabbed the woman to death in front of her children.


What or what could be the motive, the whole world wonders.

The 38-year-old woman was attacked by the 29-year-old man not far from a supermarket in the Bavarian town of Prien am Chiemsee on Saturday. The German tabloid Bild has alleged that the woman attended a Christian church service, citing the victim’s sister.

The attack took place in front of the woman’s two children, aged five and 11. Before the assault, the man reportedly shouted something in his mother tongue to the woman.


Gee, I wonder what on Earth what he could have possibly shouted?

The man kept on stabbing his victim until a duty policeman and several passersby dragged him aside. He has been temporarily sent to a closed psychiatric institution.

The woman later died in the hospital from her injuries.

Authorities have ordered an autopsy of the victim. However, it may take up to several weeks to get the results, police spokesman Andreas Guske said, according to local news outlet Chiemgau24.

Amazing. Weeks to get a cause of death after she was stabbed on a street in broad daylight in front of multiple witnesses, and the assailant, bloody knife in hand, had to be restrained by multiple people including a police officer. I'd like to think it's just Germans being persnickity and bureaucratic.

Maybe the Alien was trying to claw it's way out of her body.

But they don't, as she stated. They simply waved them on.

That's the bizarre part. Sometimes I wonder why they cannot take advantage of the chaos to sneak some moles into the camps and just weed out the obvious nut-jobs. It would be expensive, but the alternative isn't all that cheap in the long run.

NGOs financing depends on getting people processed. Young Men are easier to move forward than Families, and cost less money to move down the line.

Then they only take pictures of women and children for revenue streams. It's a business, and you'd be shocked how much even small NGO executives make - while paying the staff who does the grunt work, bupkiss.

Yes, many are paid per "eligible" claimant, and different NGOs have different "processes," so claimants can share information about what lies to tell to get through each process. And, after ISIL/Daesh captured Syrian passport facilities and government records offices, vetting became impossible, by Hillary Clinton's own admission.

What have the fucking Saudis with all their wealth ever done for other Muslims?

They generously offered to build 200 attack bases mosques in Germany:

That's great isn't it? I can hardly wait to see where all the gas money i spent ended up at.

Hillary Clinton herself signed a memo saying that Saudi Arabia knowingly funds Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), and that Qatar's assistance is the worst in the region.

I guess the Legacy of Hindu and Sikh Colonialism of the Pashtu causes all this hate (LOL).

"More needs to be done since Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaida, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups," says a secret December 2009 paper signed by the US secretary of state. Her memo urged US diplomats to redouble their efforts to stop Gulf money reaching extremists in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

"Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide," she said.

Three other Arab countries are listed as sources of militant money: Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates.

The cables highlight an often ignored factor in the Pakistani and Afghan conflicts: that the violence is partly bankrolled by rich, conservative donors across the Arabian Sea whose governments do little to stop them.

The problem is particularly acute in Saudi Arabia, where militants soliciting funds slip into the country disguised as holy pilgrims, set up front companies to launder funds and receive money from government-sanctioned charities.

I also find it astounding that out of 100 self-identifying American Christians, only 30 actually believe that their religion is objectively true.

That's an argument as to why Islam is dangerous and not Christianity. In most Islamic countries, even suggesting the Religion is not 100% true will get you killed.

I'll add this to my long list of reasons not to visit Islamic countries.

I 100% agree, at least in the short term. At some point, I offered it up as proof that most self-identifying American Christians weren't 'true Christians,' but that was somewhat tongue in cheek (in case anyone is reading things a little too literally). I believe that Christianity has been changed to conform to secular society, which is something I'm happy for.

Besides being a pain in the ass, though, Christianity presents two threats to Americans. In the short term, the religion influences politics, and the distrust of scientists among the religious is a big problem, although it has been tremendously diminished by the changes in the various churches. In the long term, Christianity represents a danger of making a comeback and pushing the west back into some dark ages. By long term, I mean as a response to some disaster or something. It's not something for an individual to worry about.

That's not to say that I don't think Islam presents it's own set of problems in the US.
