The 712-page Google doc that proves Muslims do condemn terrorism

https://www.theguardian.com/world/sh...errorism-stats

When a classmate told 19-year-old Heraa Hashmi that “all terrorists are Muslims” she began to compile a dossier of all instances of Muslims condemning terror attacks
"... Using Google spreadsheets, she made a “712-page list of Muslims condemning things with sources”, which she tweeted. The list includes everything from acts of domestic violence to 9/11.

“I wanted to show people how weak the argument [that Muslims don’t care about terrorism] is,” she explained.

Her stats struck a chord. Within 24 hours, Hashmi’s tweet had been retweeted 15,000 times. A couple of her followers volunteered to help her turn her spreadsheet into an interactive website and, within a week of the tweet, muslimscondemn.com was born. This was last November, but the website has grown considerably since then and, sadly, flickers into prominence whenever a new attack takes place...."
I've never doubted that MOST Muslims flatly Condemn Terrorism. And i believe the western plutocrats/oligarchs/kletocrats are using Islam and "terror groups" as pawns and as the new boogie-man.
However, the Islamic faith easily lends itself to terrorism on the fringes.
And in the main, it lends itself to political and social oppression of all those that don't "submit".

More than any other major religion.

I agree..

But I also wish there were a way to screen or identify those who cause the terrorism in the Muslim Religion. If there were a way.. wouldn't it help the religion as a whole?

It is one thing to denounce terror, quite another to do some thing actively about it.

They had better do something physical about their condemnation instead of talking with both their thumbs up their asses.

One of m my biggest gripes with Islam apologists on this is that in interviews on news outlets they frequently put the energy of their condemnation in the wrong place. If they would spend as much time railing against the terroristic elements in their religion (even if they are 'fringe') that they do against people who point it out, they might make some actual process rooting it out. In interviews I see of them, I get the impression they are more put off by the fact people out there question their religion BECAUSE of terrorists than the very terrorists themselves. They may indeed DO condemn terrorism, but there's still an issue of their degree of emphasis.
