    " he tried to connect relation between shia and sunni "

    where did you get that from? From his FB page, it is pretty clear that he mainly tried to play with weapons and impress some friends back home.

    " How they miss Saddam so much. "

    You can bet that the Kurds don´t miss him. And in case you missed that, the Kurds are the only people who are actually fighting ISIS at the moment.

    I´d recommend some time to think before rattling off those talking points.

    Hamas has been using women and children as human shields for their tunnel entrances and rocket silos for a long time now. What exactly would you do when someone is attacking you from behind human shields? The IDF actually phones before they drop bombs. Do you know any military that does that`? What more do you want them to do??

    One thing you will notice about this beheading is the absence of any outrage or protests about them in the islamic world. But you can bet the protests will be back the moment Israel responds to the latest volley of rocket attacks from Gazah. Bet on it.

    " They weren't 'matyred', the were sacrificed like so many other Palestinians. "

    Same thing, this just the phrasing it in islamic terms. When they send out suicide bombers, the Hamas and their clerics are of "sacrificing" them, but they frame it as "martyred". After all, paradise awaits.

    Funny thing is, the Hamas (male) leaders themselves never martyr themselves. No, they stay in safe bunkers, while they order civilians to stay in their homes, even after the IDF calls and says they are going to blow up the house because it is on top of a tunnel entrance or next to a rocket site.

    I saw a TV interview where a Hamas representative was actually grilled about this issue (credit to Hard Talk), but he kep evading the answer. Instead, he kept rattling on about the evilness of the "zionist entity".

    It is easy to type big feel-good talk, but you know very well that it won´t happen.

    ISIS will continue to grow, until our governments stop supporting the Sunni extremists in Syria and accept the fact that Iraq is de fact split along sectarian lines now.

    The only party that really deserves support in this mess are the Kurds. Alas, precisely that is not coming from Obama.

    Short answer: Yes. But actually the period I liked best was when there was internet, but dial-up, not cheap broadband yet. At that time, we could communicate world-wide, but it was expensive and it took some effort. So you thought twice before putting things online, and aimless "surfing" did not exist. At that time, there were was lots of talk about some electronic Jeffersonian democracy, where intelligent discussions would take place. Then, cheap broad-band came along, and it was like someone opened the flood gates. Now we online non-stop porn (making up 50% of internet traffic or so), scammers, spammers, phishers, advertisers, "social networks" aka mindless chat, etc etc....

    " That's gonna stop the US from trying to bomb your butts to kingdom come. "

    Not gonna hap pen. Obama will do some meaningless p1n-pr1ck bombing while at the same time continue to support the Sunni Jihadis in Syria, thus helping ISIS. Complete insanity, but there you go.

    ISIS is on a roll and will continue to be, until Western governments wake up... whenever that will be, if at all.

    " Yes he(and I ) advocate shariah law but not the one which you guys are misunderstanding. The sharia law which he is advocating pardons apostates. give rights to minorities to practice their religion in Islamic state. equal right for women. "

    So now you are claiming that there is an alternative Shariah law out there, one that is tolerant and modern. What I want to know is: Why do we never this Shariah law in real life? Every time and everywhere in the world, where Shariah is established, it denies equal rights to non-muslims, women, apostates, and homosexuals, and limits free speech. Why is it that your fellow muslims NEVER discover this tolerant Shariah that you are talking about? Islam apparently produces a never-ending stream of "misunderstanders".

    Or are you simply giving us an example of Taqiyya (islamic deception)?

    So everything that Wikepedia and other sources state about Dr. Zakir Naid is untrue? That must be a gigantic conspiracy.

    So Dr. Zakir Naid does NOT advocate Shariah law for India? He is for secular, modern law? He wants equal rights for all, including for apostates, atheists, and homosexuals? Equal rights for women?

    Please confirm.

    " Attempts to characterize Islam as an especially "bad religion" are always couched in arguments meant to justify violence and coercion against the Moslem dominant societies. "

    Where do you get that from? You are pulling that right out of thin air. Nobody here has demanded violence or coercian against any society. However, many people are against the violence and coercian that islamic law represents. You can see islamic law where it is practised --- do you really want to impose that on your society? But that is exactly what islamic leaders (including the aforementioned Dr. Zakir Naik) want.

    There are no clear borders; for this, this is not a question of some countries vs other countries. It is a question if you want to submit under a radical and backward ideology, or if you want to maintain achievements of modernity, such as freedom of speech, equality under the law, basic human rights, etc. Shariah has none of that.

    Junaid Raza:

    " And true scholars like Dr. Zakir naik majority of people even dont know about him? "

    That would be the same Dr. Zakir Naik who demands that non-muslims are denied the right to practise their faith in islamic countries? While he demands that muslims are granted this right in non-muslim countries. The same Dr. Zakir Naik who supports the destruction of non-islamic structures in islamic countries (like the Bahmiyan Buddhas)? The same Dr. Zakir Naik who supports the death penalty for those who leave islam? The same Dr. Zakir Naik whosaid the more "revealing Western dress" makes women more susceptible to rape? The same Dr. Zakir Naik who supports the death penalty for homosexuals, as per Shariah law? I could go on.

    If this is your best example of a "moderate" islamic leader, I think you demonstrated why many of us are saying that current islamic teaching is fundamentally incompatible with modern, Western thought.

    " Hopefully, Islamic State (or whatever name they're going by now) will eventually be defeated. "

    ...and how do you imagine that happen, seeing that Obama is funneling support to them via his aid to the Syrian jihadis? Fact is, ISIS is a direct result of US policy. Without the misguided support for the Sunni rebels in Syria, ISIS would not exist.

    " There are racial, unethical and immoral statements "

    I have not seen any racist statements. If you have, can you identify them?

    Immoral? Well, I consider support for Shariah Law as immoral. Of course it depends on your definition of "morality".

    Junaid Raza:

    " with all due respect the word terrorist is very confusing word. "

    So now you are claiming there is no terrorism, because you can´t define the word? Come one. Clearly we agree that people who murder the entire male population of towns and take women as sex slaves, they are terrorists. Is that too complicated? And when they do so while clearly identifiying themselves as muslim and quoting islamic commands, then we are talking about muslim terrorists.

    " he is Ph.D n he knows much about ISLAM. "

    Well, obviously studied it, so he knows something about it. And Abu Bakr al Bagdadi is not an exception --- practically leaders of islamic terror organizations are islamic clerics. Why is that? Obviously, they are not acting out of ignorance of islam.

    " how can I consider him Muslim when he has destroyed mosques and killed my Muslim brothers? "

    Which muslim brothers? If you are muslim, then you know very well that Sunnis consider Shias as heretics, and both Sunni and Shina consider Ahmediyyas as heretics. They have been killing each other for centuries (well, not the Ahmediyya; they have renounced violent jihad, so they have only been on the receiving end of Sunni and Shia violence). Anyway, I could go on. Jihadis kill other muslims all the time, there is nothing new there.

    Junaid Raza:

    " And one more thing Terrorists have no religion since they(the one everybody is talking about) are labelled as Muslim terrorists "

    That is simply evading the issue. Terrorists who clearly state that they are acting on islamic commands and quoting Koran verses are not "labelled" as muslim terrorists, they are so by definition. Also note that practically all radical islamic organizations are headed by muslim clerics, who obviously have studied their religion. Case in point, Abu Bakr Al Bagdadi, the self-declared Caliph and leader of ISIS, has a Phd in islamic theology. So don´t you think he he knows a thing or two about islam?

    It is just to simply to derail any discussion by claiming that radical muslim leaders are not muslim.
