What does ISIS want?
Would the terror group known as ISIS, ISIL, IS etc... be satisfied to be left alone by the west? Would a mass conversion from other world religions to Islam be satisfactory? Money, power, influence, or all of the above? Perhaps, none of the above. Is generating fear the primary motivator? What are your thoughts on the motivations of ISIS? Sure, it's a religious war. Sure, they're radical. But what do they want?
Supposedly, they want to bring about the end times by goading a huge war to take place in some place in Syria, and until they get it, they're just gonna be an annoyance and a pain until someone brings down the thunder.
That actually makes sense (from a radicalized perspective). I think that Islam has an eschatology similar to Christianity.
It's different. In Christianity, the war will happen no matter what, and Jesus will return, but to establish peace. In Islam, the Mahdi will bring destruction, as the world will be forced to convert.
You neglect to mention that, in the Book of Revelation, Jesus establishes this so-called peace by turning 200 million people into chunky salsa. At least in the Islamic story, people could just convert and the death toll would be way, way lower.
Only a sicko like you would conjure up some twisted way to make Islam and perverted mass murderers sound desirable to Christianity. You are pathetic.
Implying there aren't perverted mass murderers within Christianity. Like, say...someone who kills police officers while attacking a Planned Parenthood facility?
You idiot,that person isn't practicing Christianity.Sickos who cut the heads of innocents are practicing Islam.Because someone says they are a Christian doesn't mean they are&if you don't understand that it's because you choose not to,deceiver!
Ahh, the No True Scotsman fallacy is out in full force. A bona fide classic in the world of hilarious fallacies. May want to read up on it so you don't embarrass yourself by invoking it again:
You have no clue what the no true Scotsman Falacy is if you think it applies to anything I said which was akin to saying no pig can fly like a bird because he says he can - you are pathetic.
Lolita, the similarity is the joint belief in an anti-Christ figure and the ultimate return of Jesus to defeat him. You are correct, though, in terms of the forced conversion. I think that ISIS is currently using that narrative
@Wikipediaman and anyone else who thinks Wikipedia isa reliable(a joke)source to cite in defense of an argument!Start here on this video at 3:12 & @4:00 you'll see what Wikipedia is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bYAQ-ZZtEU Then watch it all.
Yeah, I always laugh when another hubber tells me to check Wikipedia. Anyone and everyone can edit that.
What did you think about the astroturf? Here is where hubbers like LISA get their info - from the top ten astroturfers https://sharylattkisson.com/top-10-astroturfers/ (fox news not in there is it?)
Oh look, someone who doesn't know that Wikipedia is moderated to prevent people from editing articles all willy-nilly. Welcome to 2007, I guess?
You didn't even watch the video! I know u have the shortest atttention span in history but what you said is WikiP's own or other astroturf propaganda. No independent analysis of Wikipedia condones them. Do yourself a favor and watch the video
ISIS wants to establish a one-world caliphate, meaning that they will force the world to convert to Islam, or die. They are supposed to wait for the Mahdi to arrive, and then kill everyone, but they are doing it now to hasten the process.
What does ISIS want? Obama's State Department thinks they want jobs!
Well that is a good question given that according to President Barack Hussein Obama they are not Muslims because Islam is a "peaceful" religion and the "future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," - Barack Obama 2012!
The prophet of Islam? Mr. President, are you talking about Muhammad? The rapist, pedophile, mass murderer, war monger, liar, cheater, thief and adulterer. Oh, yes let's not slander such as him. (Obama prefers to slander Republicans).
Don't take my word for it, listen to a muslim woman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKkckaZO4fw
And Mr. President if the Islamic terrorists are not Muslims, why was Bin Laden given a Muslim burial? Why was the San Bernardino duo given proper Muslim funereal rites?
Answer, because they ARE Muslims. Actually the "peaceful Muslims" are the ones who aren't practicing real Islam because true Islam is anything but peaceful.
So welcome ISIS to Obamaville, where evil is good and good is bad, right is wrong, and man made global warming is terrorism and terrorist are freedom fighters who just want a job. I thing ISIS may be pretty happy with Obamaville. I don't think ISIS really wants anything, Obama has given them everything they could want, starting with IRAQ and it will end with YOUR head on a stick.
That's bleak. But, when you're dealing a group of individuals bent on destruction, bleak seems an appropriate tone.
ROTFL with that meme. Look at Obama's face! LOL
Mr TSAD the language you have used against the Prophet of Islam is very disturbing, it doesn't establish your credibility to be a torch bearer of peace.
Muhammad, with no disrespect to your faith, I think that a lot of non-Muslims are bothered by the Prophet's marriage to a nine year girl. What's your take on that?
Marriage to a 9 year old girl! Pedophilia is probably the most virtuous thing he has been documented to have done were it possible to describe his life of immorality in such a way.Any sane person would be ashamed to be a follower of Muhammad.
TSAD, without knowing the wisdom behind any initiative simply blaming is unjustifiable and an act that doesn't suit to a sensible person like you, I would request you to go through the details of that incident.
Watch this, here this Muslim woman lays it all out for you, pleaase show us where she is wrong https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKkckaZO4fwre she is wrong.
Lolita,thanks but not really,I used the Q&A to demonstrate the insanity that is known as the Obama administration's view of ISIS (remember the JV of terrorists?)I don't think that was what Andrew was looking for&I wouldn't expect to be best.
TSAD / Andrew... Please go through the link to know about Prophet s marriage to a nine year girl :
http://www.letmeturnthetables.com/2013/ … d.html?m=1
I apologize for unpleasant words if any.
I read both links. First link: Prophet married nine year old but it's okay because he's the prophet and the girl wanted to marry him. Second link: He married a nine year old because he wanted to have sex with a nine year old.
Bottom line: this guy's elevator didn't go all the way to the top.
Now I know why Hillary & Obama don't want to say "Islamic terrorism." They both like the idea that a leader can have multiple reasons to participate in immorality. Obama: "The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the prophet" PUKE,PUKE,PUK
ISIS, or Daesh, (as opposed to Al Qaeda which just wanted the West out of Islamic territories) is a religious death cult that believes they will bring about the apocalypse through a great war with the West (Rome) where they believe that they will be victorious. Again, unlike Al Qaeda, ISIS needs to hold physical territory in order to have a caliphate, so they likely would have left the West alone for a while - Western attacks upon ISIS in Syria have only hastened the inevitable.
ISIS has nothing to do with Islam and the Muslims. The Muslim scholars have categorically rejected the isis's claim and they haven't recognize it's existence, and among the Muslims in general, one can find a kind of hatred towards such a terror group, whose claims and activities are quite detrimental to the teachings of Islam.
Really? May I ask you, wouldn't it be true to say Islam stands or falls on the credibility of Muhammad on which we do not have single evidence but unfathomable doubts because his conduct was immoral?
TSAD, that is not true, Islam is not a religion originated by Prophet Muhammad, rahter it's a continuation of what Prophets Abraham, Moses & Jesus have taught and preached.
He's got a point, you know. Islam is the Return of the Jedi to Christianity's The Empire Strikes Back. Both are sequels to the original Star Wars--er, Judaism.
So you are not a follower of Muhammed?I never said Islam was originated by Muhammad,did I? What I said was if Muhammad is shown to be immoral does Islam still stand?A religion whose "prophet" is immoral?and what you say is proven complete BS.
TSAD, BS that Islam is not originated by Muhammad but of what Prophets Abraham, Moses & Jesus have taught, how is it?
YS,try speaking normally?Irrefutable evidenceAllah,far from being the biblical God of Abraham,was actually the pre-Islamic pagan moon-god.It is an established archaeological fact worship of the moon-god was the main religion of ancientmideast.
Literally 5 seconds of research:
lol, only Z considers Wikipedia, known not to be a reliable source, the last word on a researched topic. As usual Z the bigot cares ZERO about the truth & will glam onto anything anti Christian. Dig deeper Z, research takes more than 5 seconds
Islam did not evolve from Judaism. Mohammad was approached by a spirit and created Islam. In order to get Jewish converts, he implemented Jewish stuff into Islam to appeal to them. No one wanted to covert to Islam in the beginning,
Instead of his default answer for everything Wikipediaman could have found many discussions&debates about what I mentioned so a reader can decide for himself what is reasonably true or false, but he is looking for a preconceived conclusion
How about this, then?
http://www.brandeis.edu/now/2008/januar … story.html
Fun Fact: Arabic Christians also refer to God as "Allah."
That link is as lame as your wikipedia citing,reinforcing the fat that you merely look for something that supports the conclusion you seek.A debate gives both sides.I know people who refer to God as the man upstairs. Does that mean anything?NO.
Such extremists desire an extremely fundamentalist Islamic hegemony where those who adhere to the Islamic religion are allowed to live, even thrive while those who refuse to adhere to the Islamic religion are killed, if not exterminated. They also want a civilization, society, & culture free of Western influences. It is their desire to have girls & women return to a very regressive type of femininity where they have very little, if no rights. They want women to subscribe to Sharia Law where women are to adopt to a very strict feminine role of wife & mother with any deviation silenced, even punished. In fact, these extremists want a male dominant hegemony where anyone who is not a heterosexual male will be marginalized, even demonized as an insignificant personae non gratae unworthy of living in their world.
It was well stated and informed. I think it gets to the heart of the question. Their demands are different than other groups because they want to press rewind on the progress of civilization.
Sorry, I don't particularly care. What they are doing shouldn't get them what they want anyway. I say ignore them. If someone commits a crime for what ever reason, try them and let the punishment fit the crime.
What are the options for holding them accountable? I certainly don't want them to be successful. I want them to be stopped.
Nuke them, it ended the last WW and we shouldn't allow one more American soldier suffer at their hands, let alone the rest of the world's innocents. Maybe then and with a new president maybe these terrorists will take seriously
Ignoring them will not work, are you kidding me? How could you not care? If we ignore them, they will make their way here (if they haven't already) and then you will care!
That's right TSAD, I'm sick of losing soldiers. The country is already short on men of valor. Let's stop sacrificing the ones we have.
To control a Nation that they don't agree with. To turn everyone into their laws of hate and destruction. To destroy Us Americans, because our Nation is free, has laws to protect women rights, to have everyone else believe in the fabricated religion that they created, same God, same laws same ruling.

It seems that Islam is on the rise in just about every nation around the globe.They are pushing their agenda onto any and every government that is TOLERANT, and using the freedom (and laws) in those countries to gain more and more control.The UK is a prime example, where political will is weak (at...

Your first statement should probably be a definition of Islam: is it what the terrorists, using religion for an excuse for jihad, worship or is it what the more peaceful people worship. Or somewhere in between?

So tell me PT, are you the only person you know that thinks about this situation as you do? The situation of prophecy concerning Islam and the West, I mean. (from the other thread). You have quoted 1 atheist that does, but are you of a group that believes along these lines and is making it...
