BBC News - Nigeria violence: Female suicide bombers hit market

Still think they’re civilized? Why not invite them in? They could live next door. Don’t they deserve to practice their religion?

You and Bill Maher and I must be racist bigots for having such embarrassing atheistic “bar talk” about these issues.
Just because Boko Haram wants to establish an Islamic caliphate and to destroy all education other than what supports their particular interpretation of Islamic doctrines, doesn’t mean that (unfortunate interpretations of) Islamic doctrine has anything to do with their actions, does it?
We should be “scientific” and discover any of the other factors that motivate their heinous atrocities, and declare that, that is the root of the problem, whereas, Islamic doctrine has absolutely nothing to do with it.
We should be in absolute denial re: any influence of Islamic ideology, because there is something about that, that is too scary for us to deal with directly. (I’m not sure what that scary thing is, but it clearly has a hold on a lot of liberally minded folks.) Speaking about such obvious truths, should be discouraged. No?

That would suit them perfectly.

Right.
See what Shining Path has done in Peru. We should combat socialists wherever we can. Read their books, e.g. Marx’ Capital. Dictatorship of the proletariat! And see what the Khmer Rouge did! Forgot about all real socialist states? And Hitler, Mao and Stalin were socialistic atheists! What I need science to see what is true!
I say that socialist doctrine is unusually amenable to interpretations that provide a framework for not only terrorist acts, but many other acts that abuse humans, and creating absolute dictatorships.
Do you want a socialist as neighbour?

Maybe. Bernie Sanders would be a great neighbor, I think. Asif Mandi (a Muslim) would probably be a great neighbor, also. But if Bernie suddenly began spouting interpretations of Socialist doctrine that advocated and supported violence and abusive acts around the world, I would tell him, "Bernie, that's fucked up!" And if Asif started advocating interpretations of Islam that supported violence and abusive acts around the world, I would tell him, "Asif, that's fucked up!" All destructive ideologies and dogma, should be criticized, IMO. The more destructive, in actuality, that they are, in today's world, the more criticism, I would think, they merit. This includes the destructive aspects of Capitalist ideology.

The only thing Shining Path (and Mao and Stalin--but not Hitler at all) has in common with "leftist" politics is an aversion to unrestrained capitalism. Other than that, these "leftist" groups have views that are basically the polar opposites in every way of "leftists" I know about and respect. The same cannot be said about Islamic radicals and Muslims in general (i.e. moderates). Most Muslims in the world--and even in Europe--have views that amount to hate speech (particularly against homosexuals and women). Why does this not bother you as much as the Charlie Hebdo cartoons? Hell, even Cat Stevens (a.k.a. Yusuf Islam) expressed support for the fatwa against Salman Rushdie. What an asshole!
