They aren't doing enough to ostracize it. And we aren't killing by the radical bastards fast enough.
Like cockroaches: Nuke out the nest fast!

No, and neither are non-Muslims. Terrorism exists largely as a result of social alienation. And few are doing anything to address it.

Some of us who wear a uniform are whittling away at the problem. 😉

True, light! Thank you for your efforts! They aren't forgotten here at home.

Great question. Shouldn't practicing Muslims get together and calm radicalism?

Yes because Muslims have some sort of control over terrorists

Consider small communities in the Arab world. Everyone in the community knows which amongst them is Taliban. U.S. coalition soldiers show up asking questions, no one says a word.

Same can be said about high crime areas in the U.S.

Their choice is either

Tell US soldiers what they know and get killed by extremists
Say nothing and continue on with their lives

So they could do something about extremists? They choose not to?

Woah its like you actually answered the question.

No need to be an ass. Your statement would be correct if all of those the US military interacted with were Muslim

The white guy who killed 2 people in Oregon , do you think Christians are doing enough to fight terrorism ?

Now, what was the question again?

26% of the them in the United States think ISIS is justified. We can't expect them to change their harmful ideology, we just need to protect ourselves from it.

You may as well ask if Christians are doing enough to stop Christian terrorists. Same answer - no.

Let's start with the guy in Portland........

The Portland guy said "fuck Jews! Fuck Christians! Fuck Muslims!" If you read what he said instead of just headlines, he clearly wasn't s Christian and his racist rant targeted all monotheists.

A quick Goggle search will tell you who they are, how long they've been active and what they oppose or support.
As for whole countries hating us..........their world view is that we hate them. Neither side is right.

“Death to the enemies of America. Leave this country if you hate our freedom. Death to Antifa!” he yelled in court Tuesday, referring to antifascism. “You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism. You hear me? Die.”

A white supremacist killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012. Another white supremacist slaughtered African-American churchgoers in South Carolina. Militia extremists occupied a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon. radicalized military veterans murdered police officers in Baton Rogue, Louisiana, and Dallas. Three members of a Crusaders militia were arrested for plotting an attack on Muslim immigrants in Kansas.
The difference is that the media - all media - tends to refer to "home grown" terrorists as fringe groups, or mentally unstable or lone wolfs. They're terrorists.

Find me a white supremacist group who isn't Christian. You proved my point. Calling them white supremacists plays better than calling them Christian terrorists.

As evidenced by my earlier comment, the Portland guy was a white supremacist who hated Christians. Also, people are more likely to be killed by Islamic terrorists than white supremacists. I encourage you to look at thereligionofpeace's Ramadan Bombathan tally.

Since 9/11, home grown terrorists have killed more than twice the number of Islamic terrorists. Of the people or groups responsible for those deaths, the majority identify as Christians of one sect or another.

More than white people are doing to stop white supremacists violence.

Hey white supremacists!

Half the population of whites deny racism even exists in this country. Willful ignorance.

I'd need a source for that claim.

There is a big difference between not believing that America is racist and not doing enough to stop white nationalist violence.

Man, I'm white, I live in a small town in the South. I'm 45 years old and have been here for 30. Your theory of "white violence" is not correct.

Is it because you were being fallacious?
