If nothing else, we now have conclusive proof that the “Islamic State” isn’t Islamic

    ISIS hasn’t claimed responsibility for this attack nor is Saudi Arabia saying it was them. Though you are right that ISIS isn’t Islamic. They are Islamists, a key distinction.

    I think they are just carrying on a long tradition. Mohammed also wiped out a mosque.

    How do you fight something like this?…..They are opposed to the Saudis for a whole host of reasons, but it’s somewhat ironic because it was the House of Saud which permitted the Wahhabi/Salafist brand of Islam to flourish in Saudi Arabia, and along with other Gulf states, exported this brand of Islam round the globe. By the Saudis financially supporting mosques and madrassas, even printing textbooks used by the madrassas, and Islamic universities worldwide…it has turned round, unfortunately to bite them in the behind.

    Didn’t you know? ISIS is just a convenient invention from the CIA: http://www.globalresearch.ca/america-created-al-qaeda-and-the-isis-terror-group/5402881

      I’m not sure which is more idiotic – the fact that anyone could actually believe that story, or the fact the author is a “research scholar” at Harvard.

      Putting together sentences with big words does not make one a scholar. In fact, you could argue that saying moronic things like this should disqualify someone from being deemed a “scholar” of anything.

      • No surprises says:

        the word scholar stopped having any meaning the first time they applied it to a “Professor” of women or gender studies. Today, the word “scholar” is just a label one applies to someone who teaches in University, but who has never really had to work at a real job.

    Jesus made a whip out of chords and violently drove the merchants and money changers out of Judea’s holiest temple – was he not Christian for using force? No one died, but Jesus was a carpenter, M’hmd was a warrior – one would expect different results from his tactics and skill-set…

    In my opinion, these ISIS, etc groups are nothing more than thugs dressing up as religious types. It was not so different from the IRA, which had is agenda and then there were all the other IRA “types” who were into drugs and gun running. You can dress all sorts of things up as religious activities and it still isn’t religion. At one time American slave owners used the bible to justify their actions. Not much changes with the human animal. Sometimes I think crows are smarter.

    What utter tripe! While the IRA, UVF or whoever were thugs they never used scripture, never called on the Holy Trinity or the saints to justify their actions. ISIS are thugs, dress up AND use the Koran to justify their murderous rampages. Big difference.
