Then why are there women joining terrorist groups? Lots of women chose to join ISIS.

Some have been saying Islam is evil because jihadists throughout the thread. I’m responding to that. I’m not going to judge Islam or Muslims based on jihadist actions. Just like I don’t judge every Christian based on what the Westboro Baptist Church does.

I'm guessing some people may not see the ideas as being mutually exclusive. There were Nazis who saved people and put themselves in danger to do so. There's a statue to one in Goirle (the Netherlands).

But, Islamism is a far greater threat than the alt-right... I mean, the number of non-Muslims and LGBT people killed by Islamists by far outweighs what a couple of alt-right people have done.


Not all Muslims are terrorists, you cultural racist.

Ooop. Well that's to be expected. In NSG and mainstream discourse.

Bring up Jihad, just because the victims were Muslim. As if they deserved it or had anything to do with radical Islamic extremism.

Oh and we've probably avoided two more terrorist attacks by Nazis, In just this past week.

Tbf, it technically is. Some right-wing people might blow their tops if you say that though.

But the motivations and end goals are usually different.

Thank you for this nice bit of Islamic propaganda, now to quote one of the early posters of this thread: What are we supposed to discuss?

Could be a distinction made for religious reasons. I don’t know. The far right doesn’t seem to consider it far right.
