It's probably alot more complex than that given how complex the world is. Of course you won't understand that.

You must be right because a Redneck Christian, like me, couldn't possibly understand anything complex.

HalleluYah
Praise the Lord.

You can't even comprehend a news site that points out Trump is wrong. You literally just dismissed a conservative reporter for the WSJ reporting a quote from a public figure as fake news earlier.

You should submit that to the Tump 2020 organizers. It makes a nice chant.

I believe Trump beat us to that idea when he said, "Who would have thought healthcare could be so complicated." He also was calling Islamic terrorism what it was long before any liberal Democrats.

Um, yea, that is the joke.

I don't have a problem with your signature per se, but forum composition rules say that it should be added to your site signature, not added after each post.

Salafism is understood by those affected as a holistic concept that governs all areas of life. Radical milieus provide logistical support and help spread Islamic and Jihadist thought. A central role was played by certain mosques and religious authorities: "Persons with a higher theological knowledge function as authorities and play a central role in the spread of ideology," the study said.

It is important that the process of radicalization is not only the demarcation from secular Western society, but also from the majority of Muslims. "The radical groups and individuals see themselves as the only true Muslims," the investigation said.


Salafism is an Islamist ideology developed by jihadist volunteers in Afghanistan in the 1980s. The history of the Islamic sect is relatively short but they claim to be returning to true Sunni Islam, which is not entirely true. The jihadist movement is far from true Islam just like the Aum Shinrikyo cult from Japan, which gassed Tokyo Metro in the 1990s, is actually a terrorist group. Salafism is the political ideology of al-Qaeda to promote their cause rather than true Islam. Sheikh Al-Kalbani, former imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, announced that ISIS is the result of the Salafi version of Islam.

Was it too complex? No, I think it was Obama doing the droning of people.

I did not see such a rule. If you are referring to "HalleluYah Praise the Lord" , it is not my signature. It is just a Jewish - Christian praise phrase that I add from time to time when I feel in the appropriate mood and I am not adding it to every post.

A lot of commies are coming out for Islam it seems. I wonder if it is because as a radical ideology it seems more successful than their own tatty and defeated ideology. Nobody, even losers, loves a loser.


I always find it amusing when people confuse editorials with actual news articles. You do realise that what you cited is an opinion piece and not an objective analysis, right?

But let us pretend for a second that it is right. If communists are also Islamists, then the US was supporting communism when it supported the Islamists during the cold war. Which means that either the US was wrong back then, or this guy is wrong now.

Which one?

Well, there is another option: Commies, Islamists and the stupid American Sixpack, who has to fight the "enemies of democracy", are all just pawns in the hands of Grandmasters, who are playing a global chess game, and they win because there is a controlled confrontation and people are killing each others.

Like an owner of a casino, who always wins as long, as there are people who play against each other.
