In 20 years I've seen hundreds of thousands of incidents of Islamic terrorist


I don't think this poster understands the finer points of counting. He just claimed he has seen over 200,000 incidents of terrorism in his life.

20 years is about 7,304 days.
That comes out to about 27 acts of terrorism a day.
More than one act of Islamic terrorism every hour.
Even when he is asleep!

I've also still yet to actually see anybody provide evidence of major terrorist activity by non Islamic terrorist in recent memory.


Terrorism by secular groups is still pretty dang common in S. and SE. Asia. The most prolific suicide bombers of the last decade was a communist group in Sri Lanka. India has insurgency from pretty much every religious group and ideology you can imagine. One of the oldest and nastiest militant groups still among the Palestinian resistance is the Popular Front which is Communist and was lead by a Christian. You might have heard them massacring a bunch of Jews and Druze at a temple last year. Most of the Kurdish terrorist groups are secular and the People's Army in the Philippines is still active.

I meant to say that in terms of people killed by Islamic terrorist rather than a representation of incidents. Which is pretty reasonable considering how widespread their terrorism is.

"Islamic terrorists" is used in order to engender fear and/or hatred toward Muslims. They'll never admit it, but that's the only logical explanation for it.

Calling it "Islamic terrorism" gives the implication that it's a special or worse kind of terrorism than if someone else committed it. It's not, so thinking of it as such is ridiculous.

It's a pretty apt saying. While it's not 100% correct,


i mean, it's not right or anything. but i like it.


It's pretty safe to say 99% of terrorist are Muslims. Show me the last time white people engaged in a terrorist attack against a civilian instillation? What's it been 3 years? I'm not saying they don't exist, but it's such a small number that it isn't worth mentioning. What do you have? Maybe 50 incidents in the last 50 years? Compare that to the hundreds of thousands, if not millions of instances of Muslim terrorism and the evidence is clear.


This is one reason why Fox News should be pulled off the air.


Please, do prove how I'm wrong instead of distracting from the actual point of the post.


"millions"? and you're asking me to prove you wrong? You seem to be aping Fox News paranoia, lies and Islamophobia - hence my response. Reminder - just because someone wears the military garb and insignia of a government, doesn't free him from being labeled a terrorist.
