    Yes, you point the finger and say, "hey, stop being an asshole."

    Conversely, am I supposed to tell my Muslim friends, "Hey, why aren't you going out there in the streets condemning these people?" Privately, they do. They think they're just as big of an asshole as I do. But I don't have to justify Christianity every time some crazy ****er does something screwed up in the name of Christianity.

    What about all those serial killers who are driven by their hatred of women? Am I supposed to defend women as "it is not the women's fault, it is the men's twisted psychosis that is the problem"? Of course not- because we all know that women are not the cause for psychotics to go psycho.

    Now, if you're talking about a country whose government is a theocracy, and that country endorses state-sponsored terrorism in the name of Islam, that is an entirely different story. That's for our elected officials to determine what type of action to take. But as a citizen of the U.S., I'm certainly not going to play into the hands of those who, let's face it, really want a reason to discriminate against Muslims. **** that.

    With 1.5 billion followers you are bound to get a few idiots. That goes for every single religion, however news for some particular religion will always go viral for reasons everyone knows. This crap should never happen anywhere, but hell I think this sort of stuff happens elsewhere with different groups in every corner of this globe....how i forget, tis is de internetz.

    The attack is not surprising.
    What pisses me off is that radiohead hasn't played creep since 2009.
    Why so arrogant ? The fans want to hear it.

    I've always wanted to visit turkey , not so much now

    That is because Jesus never told his followers to behead anyone or to murder apostates.

    What's screwed up is that there were no arrests made when there's video evidence.
    The government condones this crap.

    Honestly that is a big part of the problem. In the U.S. if Westboro shot a gay person or set fire to their home, they would be prosecuted. That's a big part of the problem.

    Absolutely. The problem is that the gov't in these countries have become so afraid of the radicals they do nothing.

    If there was zero tolerance for this kind of stuff - if issuing a fatwa of death led to arrests - maybe we could turn the tide.

    There's a huge political element that often gets ignored.
