FFS! I can't f**king stand Muslim extremists!





I've seen this episode, it's quite good. The point at which Muhammad hands Peter Griffin a salmon helmet was blocked out with a similar message, however. Wish they'd left it in and made a point about how ridiculous all that stuff is.

This is apparently part of the 'threat' they have received.

"We have to warn Matt and Trey [the producers] that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."

The background on Van Gogh - Theo Van Gogh was a Dutch film maker who was murdered by Mohammed Bouyeri over a documentary about violence against Muslim women.

In 2004, Bouyeri shot Van Gogh 8 times, which killed him on the spot. However, the assassin proceeded to slice his throat practically decapitating the filmmaker, stabbed him in the chest and then left two knives in his torso with a 5 page letter attached.

It's kind of pathetic, really.

There are not many things in life that causes me to feel this much anger, this fear the Muslim extremists have caused is destroying free speech and it causes me so much pain.

Are they even Muslim extremists? I think that makes them sound like an tiny minority. I would say calling them Muslim conservatives would be more appropriate. Sure most Muslim conservatives would not publically make a threat but I bet most of them agree with their reasoning.

I don't think they're Muslim extremists. Many Muslims believe any depiction of the prophet, even favorable, is forbidden, fearing it could lead to idolatry.

The issue here is the Qur'an and some of its content. Although the Muslims that actually murder for their cause are extremists based on their actions, I fear the portion of Muslim society that agree with the reasoning of their actions, is quite significant.

They should not be considered extremists when you can find the words in the Qur'an that support their actions. That's conservative Islam, not extremism. All that label is doing is helping the religion retain an image of normality when we should be worried with what it is doing to our Western society.

They should not be considered extremists when you can find the words in the Qur'an that support their actions. That's conservatism Islam. So I say get rid of this label extremist, it's helping the religion retain an image of normality.

Well Mark, you know what you need to do, vote BNP.

I'm just praying that I'm utterly ignorant about conservative Islam and how it is effecting our society... maybe the vast majority consider its primary message to be of peace but I've got this feeling that behind closed doors, that's not the case.

I'd be careful with that if I were you - not that you need to worry about being PC, but that's a hell of a generalisation and dismissive of the majority of Muslims who DO believe in a peaceful religion. I work with several Muslims who, while following the traditions of wearing head-scarves, etc, would baulk at the thought of violence in the name of their religion.

Quoting their message out of context makes it seems pathetic but when you consider the fact they researched where the creators lived, the warning they put at the end of their YouTube video and promotion of a video of a threatening sermon.... it gives a completely different meaning to it all.

But I'm being careful here to say "conservative" Muslims.... the Muslims I have met in my life are very peaceful and nice people but it's the ones that have not been brought up within our generation that are more likely to agree with all the nasty stuff in the Quran.

The peaceful Muslims are frankly the ones that do selective reading of the Quran and you can't blame them really. Just like Christianity, as society evolves, religious people adapt by being more selective with what they choose to believe from their scripture.

Back in your box, racist!

Seriously, I don't like anyone pandering to a PC agenda, but it's a bit much to dismiss an entire religion based on the actions of a minority which produces an image for the majority.
