Even though the Koran Burning was Called Off Christians are Attacked

    In Srinigar India, Muslim extremists have attacked and burned down Christian schools and churches.  A Catholic school was burned and then a Protestant school and church was burned.  Two other Protestant schools were attacked.  The police were called but were unable to contain the violence and 17 people died and 80 wounded.  Someone threw a grenade into a Lutheran church in Pakistan also.

    These things happened even though the Koran burning was called off.  Can it all be blamed on Muslim extremism and why don't we hear form non-extremist Muslim condemning these acts?  Should we let Muslim extremists affect our domestic policies?

      I think those who died, "17 people died and 80 wounded",were the Muslims not the Christians.

      I condemn attacks on Christian schools, and Churches.

        The report didn't say it was only the Muslims that died.  Besides, if it was the Muslims that were attacking it makes sense that there would be some Christians among the dead.

        I'm glad you condemn it, I hope we get to hear condemnations from Muslim leaders.

        Because it was the Muslims who were rioting when the police came in to try to contain the violence.

        I agree with your condemnation.  I condemn attacks on schools and churches of any religion.

      The answer to your last sentence is "should we allow domestic idiots access to the media?"

      calling the people that attacked christian schools and churches, Muslim extremists is really is really a misleading term,
      I would not call David Koresh a christian extremists. I would not call him christian at all, That said, I can not call the people that did the attacks muslim,  none of these people follow their religion, they go through the motions, so I would really call them non believers

        They just do what the christians do. Follow their insane tome!

        Qur’an 8:12 cp. 8:60 “Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers”; “smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them”

        Qur’an 2:191 “...kill the disbelievers wherever we find them”

        Qur’an 9.33 He it is Who sent His Apostle with guidance and the religion of truth, that He might cause it to prevail over all religions.

        Qur’an 2:193 “And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah”

        They are believers all right!

        Any christians want to say I quoted this out of context? smile
        Not bloody likely is it? lol

        I would call them Muslim extremists because they burned the Christian churches and schools in retaliation for burning the Koran. 

        David Koresh is a Branch Dravidian and this was always mentioned.  The Branch Dravidians broke off from the 7th Day Adventists so I would consider them Protestant.  He and his followers however were not doing the attacking it was the government who surrounded his compound and attacked them.

        I think if you attack in the name of your religion then you get to becalled an extremist of that religion.  That's what makes it different from the secular.  So yes they are muslim extremists who attacked the schools and the church.

    People threaten to burn a religious book, and in retaliation another group of people burn down their place of worship, throw grenades, and leave 17 dead/80 wounded.  Yeah, I might categorize that under extreme.

      Hi ediggity! We all know it is extreme. When one guy threatens to burn the Koran everyone from the President down to the man on the street says he shouln't do it and agrees it's not the Christian thing to do.  I'd like to hear Muslim imams condemning and communicating to all Muslims that those attacks were not the right thing to do.  If someone can point me to newspapers that say that, I'd be much obliged.

        Well they wont...and that is part of problem..if all imams,mullahs get together and pass a fatwa that any one getting involve in any violent activity in name of Islam would seize being muslim , terrorism amidst muslim would soon die down..paar's sect founder eliminated jihad and what he got in return was being duped as british agent...
