What?
Next you will tell me there were sexual assaults happening at Oktoberfest BEFORE scary Arabs were in Germany?

When will the Middle Eastern immigrants learn nude lesbian mud wrestling, ending with sobbing, labia slurping orgasms. This is what makes life tolerable in the West.

Although the OP URL includes "Cologne", the linked article does not mention it. The article is misleading in that it fails to acknowledge the huge number of attacks that did happen in Cologne and elsewhere:

https://patrick.net/1288176/2016-01-05-cologne-was-culturally-enriched-this-nye

Those attacks reflect the inherent causal link connecting Islam and sexual assault of non-Muslims. That connection drives a terrible number of such attacks from Egypt to Sweden, including the organized gang rapes and forced prostitution that the BBC politely euphemized as "grooming."

Yes, you may ask. I've mentioned them before too. I come from a large family and have a modest one of my own.

Where people post a lot about themselves, I try to learn from correlations and look for patterns. Grandparents, and parents of daughters, tend to recognize that Islam poses a terrible threat. For example, thousands of British girls were victimized systematically by Islamic "grooming." The people who fail to see that tend not to have children, or at least not to have daughters; that category are essentially chickenhawks, eager to put other people's children (especially daughters) in harm's way. It did get my attention that you professed your "love" for your birth control and never mentioned any love for your children, but maybe I missed the comments where you said you love the kids too?

Islam update today, for curious2 : I was crossing the street in an intersection on my way back from lunch when I had "an encounter". A woman driver, wearing a hijab, drove up to the intersection and wanted to turn across the crosswalk I was proceeding through. I smiled and waved as we made eye contact and she brought her car to a stop. gasp She smiled and waved back! I was AMAZED! But then ... (so predictable) ... she of course ran me over, screeched her tires, and did one of those A-Rab lalalalalala things the females do as she sped away.

She was in a new white Ford Explorer.

(True-ish story. Some alternative facts present.)

Simply being a Grandparent, or having a daughter, doesn't increase rational thinking. If anything, I believe our children make us less rational, not more, in our world view.

Fear is this administrations great motivator. Be skeptical of Trump talking heads. That video states that Islam wants eighty percent of people enslaved or exterminated! Hehe. Wild stuff! That would mean 1/4 of the world population (rough figure for Islam today) wants all the others, essentially, dead or subservient. Pure fantasy.

There are "bad hombres" out there, and some of them would happily kill me or you. Some may try to get into the country and some will succeed. There will be another terror attack on the scale of 9-11, or similar. Almost unquestionably (tons of studies, but here is MIT). Attack to happen in the US? Highly likely.

But are you going to live your life in fear of it?

What are you going to trade, for very questionably effective protection from it?

Pew research destroys the political talking points ... here ... and here ...

The threat isn't much of one for the cure people are asking for. I'll gladly live braver and freer, than scared and safer, from something that has been made significantly bigger than it actually is. The rationale behind the fear of Islam is for it be used as a politically unifying motivator, and one that can be ramped up to a greater level when needed.

Rew, your obsession with fear reminds me of a slogan by Malcolm X, back before he got murdered by Muslims.

Rew says

Pew research

confirms that in most countries with Muslim majorities, most Muslims want Sharia, which commands killing or subjugating non-Muslims. IOW, it destroys your earlier claim. Evidently you failed to read it before posting the links.

Rew says

What are you going to trade, for very questionably effective protection from it?

America should stand for liberty and justice. You are the one standing for the spread of Islam, which is a hateful fraud. Did you even read the "grooming." cases I linked? How is it fair to those thousands of girls, that the misguided spread of Islam should cause them such pain? Islam commands Sharia, which would be unconstitutional. Presidents Jefferson and Madison fought the Barbary Wars to stop Muslims enslaving Americans and Europeans as they were doing, as per Islam. Our Constitution exists in large part for the specific purpose of enabling America to win the Barbary Wars, because the original Articles of Confederation did not provide enough military strength to defeat the Barbary Pirates. It isn't a trade. It's patriotism. Standing against Islamic Sharia is what our Constitutional America was founded to do.

Your statistics about deaths omit war. So, according to you, we have no cause for concern regarding war, even nuclear weapons pose no threat. If you were correct, we could save a lot of money by simply disbanding the military, which according to you is a waste of time since it isn't providing effective protection from anything other than irrational fear.

Liberty for what? For religious belief and practice? I'm not seeking to "spread" or "proselytize" for any religion. I just don't irrationally fear Islam. I've never found much use for personal practice, or religion, myself.

Care to address any of the threat statistics from BI or anything further provided by the Pew research studies? Do you see how American Muslims are more moderate, as if, Muslims aren't one slavish brutal people fixated on one dogmatic interpretation of an old book? It's almost as if, gosh, American Muslims are able to live peacefully in America. But that cannot be. Right? What shall we do? Lock them up in camps?

Just because I don't believe Islam is the great evil you believe it is, doesn't mean threats of war or nuclear weapons don't exist, in the world.
If the stats did include war in them, how would it help your case that Islam is a grave evil we must fight now (or whatever you are arguing)?
Most of the Sunni's are/were fighting with us. Do we get to count their troop and support totals against the radical fringe or other state backed Islamic interests against us?

Edit: we should also include the 5000+ Muslim Americans serving in our armed forces today, in whatever mad calculus we are doing here to show Islam is "the great Satan".

Rew, perhaps it might be possible to help you understand why you fail to persuade.

You sound like someone advocating self-harm, e.g. cutting or smoking or even mutilation. You keep saying, "don't be afraid," only a third of smokers die from smoking, everyone will think you're a coward if you don't." It doesn't persuade. Smoking and other forms of self-harm make people worse off, as Islam does. Islam makes whole countries worse off. Pakistan is a failed state, a terrorist state that continues to function (and sponsor terrorism) because of Islam and misguided American "aid".

Rew says

The point is that what killed the most people last decade might not be what will kill the most people next decade. Churchill called Islam the religion of war and blood, because it had killed so many people, as it continues to do.

Really, I'm not going to waste more time on you, except to say that your efforts on behalf of Islam (P-MS, or Para-Muslim Syndrome) don't make you look moral or fair or brave. If you were any of those, you would ask your Muslim "friends" to help Asiaa Bibi, who is currently on death row, as per Pakistani law, as per Sharia. Your support for Islam is not fair to her, nor to her family, nor to all the others who have suffered from Islam, and who continue to suffer from it. Every time you persist, you make youself look worse, less interested in our Constitution and more interested in spreading Islam and Sharia.

Lots of problems with Rew's chart.

For one, it pulls a trick of "Foreign Born Terrorists", when many terror attacks are committed by 2nd Generation or converted individuals, which is misleading as it excludes many terrorist-caused fatalities. Omar Mateen for one, Rizwan Farook for another, John Allen Muhammed - whom the Bush Admin dishonestly refused to characterize as an Islamic Terrorist - for yet another.

For every terrorist attack in the US resulting in fatalities, there are many others that are stopped.

Also, if we go by the chart, we should shut down tornado warning centers, other NOAA projects on tornados, and repeal tornado-based safety regulations and building codes, since Tornadoes kill even fewer than "Foreign Born" Terrorists.

"Since tornadoes will happen again, I'd rather accept a freer economy by dumping safety rules that impose costs on builders and homeowners, since people are gonna die anyway and the code enforcement is expensive and not foolproof, diverting tax payer dollars from heart disease and cancer research."

That being said, it's not just Terrorism. There's a ton of crime. In France, a ludicrously disproportionate amount of crime is committed by North Africans. For some other Euro states like Sweden, we don't have reliable ethnic numbers because the government refuses to collect them on grounds of Ray's Cyst. In the UK, as MMR reported, they lump Sikhs and Hindus with Muslims by using the deliberately less specific "Asians", trying to imply Rotherham and other rape gangs had substantial non-Muslim membership. We have honor killings on a regular basis, as does all of Europe.

When the French Police try to patrol crime and radicalism ridden neighborhoods on behalf not only of Native French Victims, but Asian ones, riots break out.

It's very hard for middle class liberals to understand, but not everybody has a modern secular materialist worldview and just wants a digital dishwasher. Some people are devoted to Family/Clan Honor and their Religion.

There's also a democratic element to this story, as to why the Political Class, in the face of great opposition, keeps insisting on mass migration regardless to what it does to crime, social order, definitely wages, overburdened services, and especially affordable housing? Isn't it easier to change one thing (Mass migration) than solve each of ALL the knock-on problems mass immigration creates?

Feel free to inform us of the correct threat so we can live our lives accordingly. Is it 1 in 20,000? 1 in 10,000? If you don't like the numbers, then don't do your usual whine about them, put up the real numbers.

How much have we spent on the war on tornadoes? It costs a lot to toenail roof sheathing instead of straight in nailing. Using hurricane ties would add at least $100 to new houses. Those are some really onerous costly building codes we are talking about. Much more expensive than what we've spent on the war on terrorism since 9/11. But wait. There are no residential building codes for tornadoes, only suggested building practices. Too funny.

As usual TL makes an ridiculous comparison and anyone that challenges it just gets even more ridiculous comparisons.

If we go by the chart, since TL doesn't have any numbers, we should spend 100,000 times more on the war on terrorism than on tornado warnings? We don't care about people living in tornado ally?

Again, you've read mass migration generally into mass migration of Muslims. What is the reason the UK and Britain need so many mostly unskilled people?

With 7B people in the world, a a big chunk of those in poverty, is the US/UK expected to take a significant number of those annually to stop world poverty or some such? What good would that even do, anyway?

Again, I did not say Muslim immigration.

Left wingers keep dodging WHY we NEED mass immigration and why simply turning it down isn't cheaper, easier, faster than treating all of the symptoms mass immigration brings with it. The most likely explanation is that it serves Middle Class virtue signaling, Upper Class interests with downward wage pressure and rent increases, and the burden on services and social order is borne mostly by the Working Classes.

Feel free to inform us of the correct threat so we can live our lives accordingly. Is it 1 in 20,000? 1 in 10,000? If you don't like the numbers, then don't do your usual whine about them, put up the real numbers.

I've already pointed out that terrorism is especially narrowed down (Why, if the overall number is low), that the Asteroid Global Impact is likely to be a complete asspull based on a very difficult-to-predict Black Swan event with no recent precedence.

If the chart is correct, and thus we shouldn't do much about domestic terror attacks terror, then we should do even less about tornadoes.

How much have we spent on the war on tornadoes? It costs a lot to toenail roof sheathing instead of straight in nailing. Using hurricane ties would add at least $100 to new houses. Those are some really onerous costly building codes we are talking about. Much more expensive than what we've spent on the war on terrorism since 9/11. But wait. There are no residential building codes for tornadoes, only suggested building practices. Too funny.

Ridiculous claim dispelled with 5 seconds on Google, if that:

Also Bob, I haven't seen you fulminate much about Drone Bombing.

This is another problem with the Left:
1. Bombing the shit out of people, destabilizing entire regions that deteriorate into Civil War with rampant Terrorism, arming mercenaries, insisting that AQ dominated groups are freedom fighting liberal democrats - all generally without overt permission or UN resolutions - bad if other team does it, not bad when our team does it.

2. Prohibiting entry of people from Problem Areas: Total Fucking Fascism.
