"Speaking of which, has anyone else noticed the public expressions of shame and contrition from the Korean-American community after the Virginia Tech shooting? Of course, no one blames this exemplary community for the actions of one nut. The Koreans are manifestly law-abiding and decent ? nipping at the heels of Italians as the greatest Americans and tied for second with the Cubans.
Indeed, I believe this marks the first time a Korean has killed anyone in the United States, not involving an automobile. Nonetheless, Korean congregations, community groups and the family members themselves are issuing statements of sorrow. Not “pleas for tolerance.” But sorrow. Remorse. Remember those? They were big back in the day.
If the Koreans can do it, why can’t the Muslims? What explains the lack of a Muslim guilt impulse ? so normal, as seen in the case of the saddened Koreans ? after dozens of terrorist attacks on Americans?"
Korean Americans are largely Christian. Christian society denounces criminal acts such as these and prays for victims. Christian society values ALL human life regardless of religion (I can hear the bleeding hearts saying "then why are we killing in Iraq…blah, blah, blah).
Islam celebrates the death of all non-muslims. Muslims only value human life as long as they are muslim…and their particular brand of mulsim (oh and male). That’s why it’s OK for Suni’s to kill Shia. They consider each other as sub-human, as well as all non-believers. They believe that if you catch a non-muslim in a muslim nation, it is OK to keep that person as a slave and if you don’t need a slave, go ahead and kill him.
Islam is not the religion of tolerance as some people would like you to believe.
Sweet, outright falsehood mixed with massive generalizations. Islam has serious problems, but you’d rather just slam it without knowing anything about it. Care to show the Koran passages, because last I checked Muslims have been much more tolerant towards Christians than the reverse throughout most of history.
it seems like you too need to brush up on your knowledge about the koran as well[/quote]
It’s not about the actual message of the Koran, it’s about what the religious leaders are teaching. What is being taught is violence.
