Anti-western Islamic fundamentalism. Why is Al Queda so violent? Same answer applies to boko haram.

Oh, and their leader rejects Darwinism.

:rolleyes:

nothing to do with the fact that the western powers have been meddling, stealing and killing people in their nations for decades of course...

your simplicity in argumentation clearly shows once again your obnoxious right wing anti-Islamic ideology

You're under an illusion that history cares about losers. The fact that western powers dominated is of no consequence.

Ultimately, supporting Islam or Christianity is stupid in modern era. It's like arguing whose imaginary friend is better. An analogy: I say 2+2 equals 4 and you say 3+3 equals 6. We are both 'right' but neither of us are willing to compromise. If it were up to me, all religion would be banned.

I said Islamic fundamentalism, the kind that leads to deranged fanatics declaring jihad on all and sundry for not kneeling before their agenda of spreading sharia law around the world. And you don't have to be right wing to detest that abomination. It is a simple argument.

If you think that is obnoxious, it must be because your own ideology is pro-terrorism, pro-Islamic fundamentalism. Unfortunately, in your hate for all things western, you end up approving terrorism and defending the atrocities of boko haram, who, incidentally, unleash their hate on innocent fellow Nigerians, not on the big bad west. Is that a force for good?

Didn't take long for this one to get heated.

Poor Sweet Cleo, she just wanted to understand :hug:

I didn't expect any Nigerians to reply and for my own interest did a web search.
They would like to kill everyone who does not pay total devotion to their interpretation of the Koran. In essence, they would kill an infidel like abraxas if given the chance.
Even though they share the same view with abraxas - that western culture is what's wrong with the world.

But any suggestion that their agenda of death is understandable because of Nigeria's colonial past is absurd, because, as I said above, for now they are quite happy just killing fellow Nigerian muslims. Some blow against western education that is!

I don't think anyone in the forum agrees to violence or extremism. I don't want the simple answer of fundamentalisms are evils. It's a known fact and we are not going to turn the discussion into bashing a whole group of people because a percentage of them are evil.

I want to understand the background of this particular problem, who are the people who join boko haram, what is the situation in Nigeria now, what do they expect, and what is the solution, etc
I want Nigerians to reply to me cause they are the closest to the situation, they may know someone in boko haram for example, they also know the historical background of north and south problems, poverty in north, oil, etc

I think the real problem is using religion in any political situation, because religions which are hundred years old can be interpreted differently. Unfortunately there is a current version or understanding of Islam that is so violent, it started to widespread in many communities from 70s as it is financially helped by radicals in Saudi Arabia or other countries. There are many schools that teach violent and hateful ideas. It was also complicated after using of jihadists in Afghanistan to fight communism, using of fundamentalism in middle east to fight Arabism, etc.

The Muslim communities have a responsibility now and they should fight radicalism in schools and other areas, a peaceful version of Islam should be financially helped. Princes or businessmen who help spread extremism should be in prison really.

At the same time, hot political problems should be solved by other means than using religion. Someone or groups going violent shouldn't stop us from studying the underlying social and political problems in that area. I read that relations between north/south, Christians/Muslims in Nigeria is bad from a very long time. I also read that particular areas in the north roll in poverty. The government in Nigeria should start a healing campaign that is based in unity, they should ask help from UN to reconstruct poor areas in the north. If they think north and south can never live with each-others they should just split.

But that is the simple answer. Looking for more politically correct answers in underlying social problems is not the answer. The Christians have the same social problems as the Muslims, but in this case at least, I don't see any reports of Christian bands murdering Muslims because ''Islamic education is evil.''

I don't like to generalize and it's impossible that a whole group of people share same ideas.

I am just asking about the current situation in Nigeria from Nigerian people.

I'm not a big fan of any kind of fundamentalism, be it Islam, Christianity, Judaism, or anything else but you should consider your comments carefully.

What I want to add is that Al Qaida's fundamentalism was not strictly Islamic in origin, it's true creator was this man: Zbigniew Brzezinski. He created these nuts in the first place. They didn't come out of the air.

To answer the mod. I don't know too much about this group so I will refrain from answering in depth. I don't know if they are a synthetic group like Al Qaida and the Taliban which were created by the West, or if many of these African Islamist ideologies are strictly of their own. I'm going to assume the latter for now since Africa is historically notorious for diverse groups fighting for power before colonialism, during, and even after, it's a perennial thing sadly to say.

Of course, they could not be responsible for their own actions, nobody is these days. It is always outside influence.
What you didn't explain is the jump from fighting the Soviet invaders to terrorising the world by killing innocents in the name of Allah.

Maybe they had their own agenda, older than Zbignew's?;)
