Like you don't hear of extreme terrorists coming out of Turkey or Brunei and such forth.
    Many Turks sympathize with Muslim/Turkic separatists in western China though.

    Muslim convert mother murdered by her husband, after she defied his demands to stop seeing her family and friends.

    A mum-of-four “forbidden” from seeing her family and friends was slaughtered by her husband before her body was dumped in woods, a court heard.

    Petite Sinead Wooding, who had converted to Islam, had gone back to wearing western clothing when she was brutally murdered in a knife and hammer attack.

    The 26-year-old mum’s body was then stored in a cellar for two days before it was taken to woodland where it was set on fire, it was claimed.

    Nicholas Campbell QC prosecuting told Leeds crown court Sinead was murdered by her husband Akshar Ali after a row.

    He claimed the husband’s “best friend” Yasmin Ahmed then helped dispose of the body.

    Miss Wooding had met Ali, who worked on a food stall at Leeds indoor market, after converting to the Islamic faith and changing her name to Zakirah.

    They went through an Islamic marriage but their relationship was described as “volatile” and sometimes violent, a jury heard.

    They had allegedly argued about her visiting friends he had “forbidden” her to see.

    Mr Campbell said the marriage had been under strain and Miss Wooding had started wearing Western clothes again in the days before her death.

    The pair had visited Yasmin Ahmed’s home for a party on May 11th but had a row and bang was heard from the kitchen.

    Ahmed went to check and returned saying Miss Wooding had stumbled into a door but everything was okay, he said.

    Then Ali told everybody Miss Wooding had left but Mr Campbell said: “In fact Sinead Wooding never left that property alive.”

    He claimed she was incapacitated before she was killed later when she was stabbed several times with a knife – one wound cutting across her windpipe.

    “If she was conscious at that time of the stabbing she would have been prevented from crying out,” Mr Campbell said.

    He told the court she was repeatedly hit about the head causing a fractured skull in several places believed to be from a claw hammer.

    After being kept in a cellar her body was then “wrapped up, bound with wire”and carried out of the cellar late at night.

    Mr Campbell said in the early hours of Sunday, May 14th, Lydia Gunning, a student living next door to Ahmed’s home, was disturbed by noises outside “...She saw the same two people coming out of the back entrance of number 3 carrying what looked to her to be a body,” he said.

    “Each was carrying their own end of the body and both were struggling to do it.

    “The body appeared to have been wrapped in a sheet or carpet.

    “She saw them carry the body and place it into the boot of the car.

    “Ms Gunning thought what she had seen was really strange but thought ‘lots of strange things happen around here’ so she went back to bed.

    “It was only later when she saw evidence of police interest she thought of contacting the police to tell them what she had observed.”

    The victim’s burnt body was found on May 14th, three days after the alleged attack.

    Akshar Ali, 27, of Kings Road and Yasmin Ahmed, 27 from Potternewton each deny murder.

    Three other people Ali’s brother Asim, 21, his mother Aktahr Bi, 45, also of Kings Road, and Vicky Briggs, 25, of Reginald Mount are accused of assisting an offender by either helping get a vehicle to dispose of the corpse or assisting in cleaning up.

    The trial continues.

    It's a problem when any religious belief becomes fundamentalist. The 'believers' can only ever see things their way, with no room for compromise or logical alternatives, the guilty become innocent and vice versa, and the fundamentalists can't see their own flawed logic. The majority of converts to Islam, 75% according to one study, actually apostatize. Most marriages between Western women and Muslim men fail. The 1970's term "male chauvinism" is an understatement, describing how Middle Eastern men regard and treat their women. Most Western women won't tolerate being treated as slaves, who are literally expected to wash their husbands' feet, when they come home. These stories are more commonplace than you might think. Only thing is, the liberal media will NOT give them any airtime for fear, that it might start a rash of 'hate crimes.' Isn't that 'rich'? Fearing to start a rash of 'hate crimes' against those who HATE us already? Government and liberal media are complicit in incidents like this. These idiots don't have any clue how dangerous Islam is, because they're genuinely not intelligent enough to read past headlines, and just take everything at face value. All one has to do is, look at any Middle Eastern country, and see how the women are treated to tell you what Islam is all about, women are second class citizens and considered property. Yet, liberal media is trying to convince us, that crap like the hijab are beautiful signs of 'feminism.' Too bad, this story won't get widespread attention. It would be a good lesson for any young girl who has been brainwashed, and is considering converting to Islam.



    ^ Hard to have sympathy for her. What did this young woman think life would be like? "Muslim-Day at Disneyland"? I will never in a million years understand Western women converting to Islam. The only explanation I can come up with is, that they are bamboozled into it without any understanding of what it truly is. Any sane woman would run a mile. Basically it went like this, the man treated her like a 'princess', until he married her. Gave her things, and was constantly saying she was 'special.' These sick bastards use some of the same tactics, that pimps and pedophiles use to deceive prostitutes and children. They prey on naïvety and niceness, and seek out the weak and alienated. Liberals on the other hand, tell women how wonderful Islam is, and that it is only haters and racists who make up bad things about the Muslim life. These women get sucked in, and the nightmare begins, and too often ends tragically. In a way, this woman is a victim of political correctness, because her family didn't teach her to shun Muslim men as partners. It's not like she didn't have access to the Internet to be able to research the lives and prospects of women under Islam. Teenagers today create apps for smartphones, program computers, sail, or fly around the world on their own. She was old enough to turn on a TV/computer, and see what’s happening in her own country, as well as most of the Western world. It’s a tragedy, but it was preventable. Her husband was following Sharia Law, like a good little Muslim. She was murdered for Apostasy (leaving Islam), she was beaten because a Muslim man has the legal right to beat his wife, and she was honor killed, so the Muslim family could hold their heads high in their community, in spite of her dishonorable behavior toward her husband and Islam. The worst part is, the whole family coming together to try to cover it up. That's what makes it really scary. So his mother, brother, and a 'female friend' helped him dispose of his wife's body? This is the thing about most Muslims, they're tribal, but also morally bankrupt, so they'll lie for and even assist a pedophile or murderer in their family, something most Western natives would find unthinkable. I bet the hand holding liberal court will find he was well within his rights for the murder, due to Sharia Law, and the 'religion of peace.' He'll get a few months, and be free after Christmas most likely. The British establishment will jail him for ten months, accommodating his disgusting halal food, and every creature comfort. He'll sue for a million pounds for discomfort while in jail, and get two million. And then they'll have him visit six year old girl's classes, so they won't commit 'hate crimes' when they grow up, like trying to escape rape and murder. Don't want to appear "racist" after all. The Left is perfectly willing to throw women and children under the bus to defend Muslims. When will Brits wake up?

    This is a disgusting religion. The only thing I like about Islam is that Muslims believe in the same God as Christians and recognise Jesus. Although, they don't believe Jesus is our Messiah. Muslims don't have our mentality either.

    Reminder: It was thanks to Byzantines that Islam grew.

    If it weren't for Byzantines invading Sassanids, burning their holy cypress trees and fire temples, and beheading Khosrau II, then the Sassanids would have been able to ward off the Rashidun Arabs and stop the spread of Islam, but sadly, Heraclius went apeshit on the Zoroastrians and significantly weakened the empire. By then, the Byzantines had won, but Heraclius viewed Zoroastrians as pagan fire-worshipers that needed to eradicated in the name of Christ. The people were demoralized and in disarray after he behead our great king, Khosrau II, and burned many sacred sites.

    Are you referring to the religion or some of the creeps who just so happen to call themselves Muslims???

    By the way, you obviously haven't read Qur'an properly to even make a baseless stereotypical remark such as in your last statement.

    From what I see between the two over the years even though the point of this thread is not really Christianity vs. Islam:

    Christianity, particularly in the west, has gone through various reforms. Though some forms more than others. But generally more so than Islam overall and Christianity has also the advantage of being the older, having more time to evolve and go through growing pains. This is more for Western Christianity though.

    Islam seems a little more stuck in the past with little to no major allowance or room for reform. The question is though is this due to the inherent nature of the religion? I believe a discussion of Bid'ah is relevant here:

    Islam isn't reformable; Islam isn't reformable by design. Christianity is a natural religion, written by ordinary men, some of which had prophet status and so on, some, who claim to have seen Jesus make miracles happen. But Islam claims to be the perfect religion, and the Quran, the original Quran is in heaven, and the Qurans we have on Earth are all copies of it. Now these bold claims are all intentionally designed that way and meant to aggrandize Islam as the ultimate religion, and the most "bugg free" update, of the Abrahamic religions, like Judaism 3.0 so to say (Christianity being Judaism 2.0). This of course is why Islam attracts as many low IQ third worlders, because they're like totally impressed by the childish my daddy is bigger than your daddy claims Islam makes for itself. However, this also means that Islam isn't really reformable, because it is the perfect monotheistic religion according to its own point of view. To the extent that Islam is reformable, it is only in the ISIS direction, but that's not the reform we're usually talking about; when we think of reform, we mean less religious dogma, and more political liberalism and so on (basically adjust your religion to the modern world). But Islam is an extremely dogmatic religion, and it is, a genocidal religion. Any liberal reform in Islam would be a watered down version of Islam, and as such, not Islam. Islam was reformed by the Wahhabis and Salafis, when they successfully went back to the Jihadi roots of Islam, and that's basically what Islam is: a violent tribal religion. The pope accepts evolution, and modern science; a khalif who's into with modern science would be a major heresy.

    So just because both are Abrahamic religions doesn't mean they're the same religions, and what works in one religion should or must work in the other religion. They're two totally different religions, and the only thing they have in common is that they come from similar/related/Semitic cultures, in relation to the rest of the world. But that would be like saying, Asatro is the same religion as Hinduism (and they're arguably more similar than Christianity and Islam). To the extent that Christianity and Islam are similar, it's only in comparison with something like Shintoism or Buddhism, or prehistoric European religions, and so on.

    That's basically how I felt about Islam and any ability to reform really. It amazingly enough, of all the Abrahamic religions, seemed to have found ways to cement itself so to speak. Even the concept of Bid'ah does not allow for innovation easily at all but rather seems to be more of a dialogue within Islam of what 'new thing' could work within the confines of Islam but without creating heresy or radically changing it. Although I recall a college professor years ago trying to make the concept seem like something that could lead to reform but it was really nothing more than mere academic dishonesty on her part. Nothing unusual as it was all a part of the PC brainwashing agenda that plagues such places of learning in the West.

    Yeah, which should tell you something about what a closed-minded mentality one must have, to be a Muslim. Look at all the intelligent people out there; they're usually liberals, whereas conservatives are usually dumb or at least dumber than liberals; that's because, a liberal mindset requires some degrees of open-mindedness, and open-mindedness is a sign of intelligence. This is also why Europeans on average are more open-minded than Arabs, and why Europeans build space stations, whereas the only schools allowed in caliphate states are Sharia-compatible schools (which means excluding teachings of evolutionary theory and big bang). Of course there are intelligent conservatives out there too, but I'd generalize it like this: liberals are more open to change and new solutions, and new solutions aren't always better solutions, but they often are. Conservatives on the other hand want little to no change, and often prefer to go backward (the retarded paleodiet and its popularity among conservatives, isn't a coincidence btw).

    Anyway, Islam is by far the most conservative religion, and Islam's followers are completely retarded, and not open to change or reform for the better. And that's generally a good thing. We don't want Muslims with nukes and space age technology; they'd be just as tribally hostile as they are right now, but far more dangerous. So let Muslims continue their misogynist honor killings and female genital mutilations, it's better that than them nuking us all

    The western mind is definitely not confined or cemented to traditionalism or even hindering itself into excessive dogma although some in the west can be hardwired to the later at times and that can lead to the over excessive stereotypical conservative thought. Essentially the people who would watch O'Reily like it was religion. Which was obviously a bad thing.

    Being flexible in thought, well perhaps too flexible, can be a double edged sword though. For instance, it can allow for innovation and new ideas to come in which will put your society ahead of the pack but it can potentially allow for some bad ideas to come in as well that can erode strong cultural attributes. The Japanese are interesting here because for centuries they maintained a hyper traditional society but finally had this broken in the 1800's when Matthew Perry showed up with a modern highly armed navy. However, the Japanese were flexible enough in thought to realize they had to adapt in order to survive in a rapidly changing world. Currently, they as a society seem to balance out both their traditional elements with the modern relatively well although sometimes I feel old Japan is drowned out by the annoying attributes of manga, anime, and kawaii, kawaii Japan. Also of relevance is how Japan handles immigration (very tightly).

    Sometimes what I find annoying when I talk to people who are hyper liberal though is that they can lie pretty bad or stretch the truth. Not unique to liberals or any one side of the political spectrum, but a recent discussion I had with someone who would be a self described liberal who is constantly talking about slashing people's tires who voted differently than himself in a recent conversation made two lies regarding a recent political issue that could easily be fact checked with just a few key strokes on the net. It reminded me of old professors I had who would constantly skew things. Like say the concept of Bid'ah in Islam and how its proof that there is room for change, innovation, or reform in said religion. Some Liberals can essentially adopt a foaming of the mouth attitude almost as bad as some in the Islamic world over certain issues and it will be based on false or actually even incompletely thinking of a problem or issue.
