In Topic: Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

I was coming to post something like this...


It would not matter the religion...the troubles are about the perceived the occupation and subjugation by a foreign power on what is considered their land. They just happen top be catholic and protestant.


Catholics bombed Irish Protestants as much as they did British soldiers. Its both a political and religious conflict.

Yes but did they do it in the name of Jesus? I think that's what makes this whole thing different is that you have Muslims from different countries hurting civilians and threatening civilians in the name of Allah. Unless I'm missing something.


One doesn't need to pronounce that "God is great" upon initiating a terrorist attack for it to be motivated by religion.


Every year in Northern Ireland on July the 12th, the Protestants celebrate the overthrow of Catholic King James II by Protestant King William III. This is not a political celebration, but rather a reassertion of Protestant superiority over Catholicism. At least that's how Catholics see it. The marchers are specifically barred from going into Catholic neighborhoods for this very reason.  


It doesn't help that most of the marchers consider themselves Orangemen - of the Orange Order. An order which was founded specifically to defend Protestant supremacy in Northern Ireland.


Catholics in Northern Ireland see these marches as a direct assault on their religion and a brash demonstration of an assumed superiority over them (Keep in mind Catholics in Northern Ireland are more poverty-stricken than their protestant kin, so they have some basis for these feelings.)


On the other side, the Orangemen see Belfast not letting them march through Catholic neighborhoods, among other concessions, as the government giving in to "the terrorists."


It's been relatively quiet lately, but traditionally "The Twelfth" and the reason for its celebration have been one of the biggest causes of violence and terrorist attacks by the IRA.

You brought up atheist. Not me.
I'm pointing to something very localized and specific. Also the attacks are more geared towards those in power or access to power than families.
You have a very odd reflexive behavior to interject blacks or minorities into a conversation. Just an observation.


Perhaps you can explain why there's 12 hours of coverage anytime a member of ISIS farts, but nothing when a bomb goes off next to a mall. (I'll grant you that no one died in these attacks, but still.)
