A minority in control, sounds unlikely. It sounds more like something a majority would do.

Global minority domestic majority (sort of). Also, even though this is getting down to sect, the Sunni ruling family in Bahrain comes from the minority in that country.

I am routinely told white people control the world but are a definite minority in the global population.

Totally agree. I also blame Muslims for the violence in Mexico, drug lords in South America, hell it's probably Russians Muslims that invaded and annexed Crimea, all of subsaharan Africa is clearly overrun by some percentage of Musliis, hell BLM is probably because of black Muslims and gun violence probably because Muslim gun ownership. I hope I didnt miss anything, though maybe warming of the earth is another consequence of Muslims being on the planet ???

Lest anyone accuse me of not being a multi-culturalist, I should make it clear that I have no problem with Muslims doing their thing in Muslim countries.

Just because I'm not in favor of throwing gay people off of buildings, stoning women for adultery, and beheading people for insulting the Prophet here in the United States and other Western countries, doesn't mean that I believe that we should try and eradicate Islamic practices from traditionally Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran. I am all for allowing (encouraging even) countries to maintain their traditional culture and national identity. Spain has bull-fighting. The U.S. has rodeos. Somalia has female genital mutilation. The world would be a poorer place if all of these quaint cultural traditions were forced to die off.

However, as a multi-culturalist, I believe that French, English, Swedish, (and yes, even American) culture and national identity are worth preserving, and just as I am against invading Saudi Arabia and forcing changes to their way of life, so I also am against Muslims invading the West and supplanting Western culture.

By invasion do you mean immigration?

Yeah, the Klan and their problem with Jews or Hitler and Jews is all part of a Muslim plot.

The Klan and Hitler?

Seriously?


When was the last time that the Klan killed anyone? Are they a big force in American culture today?

Hitler was taken down in 1945.

Perhaps some examples from the last 50 years might be a bit more relevant.

Yes. Invasion and immigration are one and the same in this context.

It's only one person but I think honour killings are an act of inhumanity. Her brother murdered her.

How about these three bank robbers and bombers: http://www.nytimes.com/1997/07/24/us/3-extremists-guilty-in-bombings-and-robberies.html

 

The guy who shot up the Sikh temple in WI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisconsin_Sikh_temple_shooting

 

The guy in CO Springs who shot up Planned Parenthood.


The point is Muslims aren't responsible for all the terror or crazy attacks in countries they exist.  There are plenty of other examples of terror being caused by other religious followers/non-religious people/crazy people.  Having food that fulfills the needs of a minority of people isn't a horrible thing that is indicative of upcoming terrorism.

Social control and domestic violence is a big problem in some sub communities. The safe houses have trouble finding enough beds and they opened special safe houses for Muslim women only.

If you'd thought about it a bit more, the obvious answer was the Troubles in Northern Ireland. That is a good example of significant sectarian strife that didn't involve Muslims.

The Sihk temple shooting is not a good example. The idiot who shot the Sihks was so ignorant that he thought they were Muslims.

Clearly, Muslims are not the only people out there doing bad things. However, during the past several decades, sectarian violence in the name of religion has overwhelmingly involved Muslims.

I'm not interested in getting into a discussion about the subjective merits of Islam. I was serious when I said I was a multiculturalist. I'm OK with Muslims practicing their religion as they see fit in their own countries. Let them behead who they want, persecute who they want, and do all the other things that make them happy. However, they need to keep it there, and we shouldn't bring it here. We don't need any more Muslims in America. The shootings in Garland, Texas, Orlando, and all the other Muslim terrorist attacks here in the U.S. are evidence that we already have plenty. America is having enough trouble dealing with class and racial issues. We haven't killed each other over religion in a long time. We don't need to start now.

The real mystery question is why should we continue to import millions of Muslims into the United States? Look to Europe to see what the consequences will be. They are ahead of us on the Muslim immigration curve. How is it working out for them? Look at the Muslim enclaves that are already growing up here in the U.S. The experiences with Somali refugees in Minnesota should be a warning to what we can expect if we continue on this self-destructive path.

Here's some more inhumanity:

A five-year-old girl was raped and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho; one of them, a 14-year-old, videotaped the attack.

the Nice situation is fucked up and hits especially close to home for me -- literally a week ago my wife and I are were in nice on vacation, staying a half mile from where the attack took place. we walked by that area and ate lunch there more than once...

what's tough is that there's no easy solution. the shitbag who did this was a weirdo, but had no previous indications of becoming radicalized or contact with ISIS. I do think the security around the event should've been much higher. one thing that struck me about nice was when we flew out how quick (and, at the time, pleasant) airport security was. they had a question about something in my bag and instead of searching it (or me), they just asked me what it was - a portable charger - and that was good enough. same with passport control when we flew in - handed my passport over, no questions, just a stump. obviously probably different with a us passport, but still..
