  •  implying that I don't back up my posts is foolish (1+ / 0-)

    given the documentation I provided you with regarding biblical quotations in this same diary's comments.

    Similarly, trying to discredit Immortal Technique's words on the basis of other things he's said is not valid; the truth of the quoted statement stands on its own.

    I've read significant passages of the Bible and the Koran, and what they both have impressed on me is that I would not be inspired to join either faith merely from from reading their holy works.

    Meanwhile, you didn't really address the substance of my post and cite a course for your assertion, but rather suggested that I do my own research. I read about current events all the time, and am familiar with lamentable events taking place in many locales, including ones run by Muslims. However, I thought someone so eager to explain how "Islam IS Islamic fundamentalism" would be able to back up his assertions with something other than a list of "terrorist events" cribbed from wikipedia.

    •  Read the Koran, Watch World Events... (0+ / 0-)

      ... if you don't see a correlation there, I can't help you.

        Devon Moore can't make your point.  But we already knew that.

        •  We? Are you part of a flock of something? (0+ / 0-)

          My point is self evident.  

          Read the Koran.

          Observe world events as they pertain to Islam.

          Connect the dots.

          This is a first grade homework assignment.  If I gave you all the answers you would refute them anyway.  I would challenge you to suspend for a moment your preconceived notions and look at this whole thing fresh, critically, with the courage that is required to question ones own tightly held beliefs about how things ought to be.
