    Thousands of r****ds in Bangladesh and across the Muslim world protesting cartoons drawn of a random dude that lived 1200 years ago. Wish they showed more outrage of actual people being murdered.

    How many of these countries are protesting China and its treatment of its Muslim minority population? Cartoons are worse than that, huh?

    Erdogan is in no position to pose as the leader of the islamic world certainly not the Arab one. Their only ally in the region is Qatar.

    Since the start of the year turkish products are being systemically boycotted by the governents of Egypt and Saudi Arabia especially the latter has started defamation campaigns against Turkey.

    Because of the free fall of lira he is trying as distraction to start fights and wars with everyone lately. Syria, Libya , Armenia, Cyprus and Greece.
    We have been in the brink of war for the last months because he is trying to claim our islands as their own.

    And Macron was the only one to agree in the push for economical sanctions in the EU council and stand up to Germany their ally who sells them weapons, even before the Charlie Hebdo saga.
    Now after all the gloves are off I want to see how long before the EU impose them.

    The more I watch Ancient Aliens
    The more I realize that the aliens made religion so we can’t advance faster technologically.

    look at the dumb stuff religions have done
    Aztecs had human sacrifices
    The reason why Egypt had mummies is because they wanted to copy the sleeping chambers for space travel by the aliens
    Some alien ate pork and had food poisoning so now two major religions have never questioned banning it for thousands of years

    This is a good question.
    Countries who bombed, colonized, and humiliated Muslims are protesting China on behalf of Muslims with loudest noise.
    Muslim countries, Muslims in Xinjiang are quiet and supportive. China has not seen a single terrorist attack in almost 5 years.


    Ever wonder you have been deeply brainwashed by your national media?

    LOLOLOLOLOL QUIET AND SUPPORTIVE? THEY ARE AFRAID OF BEING KIDNAPPED, THROWN IN A CONCENTRATION CAMP AND DISAPPEARING.

    The CCP is the most vile and disgusting entity on the planet. They have killed millions of Chinese.

    Are you denying that the Uighars are severely mistreated by the Chinese government? How is the French response worse than what China has done on a much larger scale?

    Also, what is your national media?

    If there was a muslim terrorist attack in China you think we would find out?
    The CCP has burried earthquakes and industrial accidents with hundreds of victims. They tried to burry a pandemic.
    If someone was decapitated by a terrorist like in France, chances are we would never hear about it.

    It'll be interesting to see how the US plays a factor if Biden wins. I'm assuming a Biden win would lead to a return of US diplomatic involvement in these sorts of spats. It's no coincidence that Turkey has been lashing out and starting fights with everyone when Trump became president.

    I don't know if it is because of Trump or it would happen anyway since Erdogan has reached his dead end with the mismanagment of his economy.
    Literally everyday the lira falls in new historic low.
    Whether Biden or Trump I don't expect much difference in america reigning his lunacy tbh.

    Yup...harvesting organs. The reason they remain on the DL is because of their crackdown on any noise. Just look at the outrage over a ****ing basketball GM's from another country's tweet.

    What did that dude say?
    Black people don’t want to be successful
    I guess Islamist don't want to be peaceful bro!

    People are stupid...and i agree with Tinman and i want to add...everyone and everybody just wants to label others for some reason.

    I have met many people from all aspects of religion and 99% seem normal. There is the odd 1% who are really screwed up but that can be true of any non-religion people.

    Because1% of 7 billion is still 70 million really "special" people

    Erdogan needs to go.

    Honestly, these nations need to decide if they want to be Muslim extremist nations or part of the free world. If they want to do crap like Erdogan, then they need to be ostracized and the West needs to cut off all relations... if they want prosperity and a market based economy, then drop the extremist BS.

    I think Erdogan went with the flow for survival. There were Islamic revolutions and revivals all around him. He saw the writing on the wall and became one rather than deal with a civil war in Turkey and now he is stuck with it. People willing to die, as prescribed by religion, are a tough foe. Especially as an internal population. We've seen, the more you imprison and kill the more widespread and virulent the popular uprising becomes.

    It is somewhat the same in other cultures, but institutional martyrdom makes it especially intractable. And it's harder to organize secular opposition because there are fewer centralizing concepts, and none as strong as being sanctioned by the Supreme Being.
