    Whilst Islam exists in its present form it will continue to bring death and misery to billions. Moreso to Muslims themselves than everyone else, whilst there have been atrocities regularly committed in recent times the qualify of life for a typical person in a more secular, developed country is vastly superior to that in an Islamic country. It will continue that way because it's part of the Islamic culture, it's a regressive and warmongering religion. Conversely Judaism is a more progressive religion in general, although it still has more barbaric practices like male genital mutilation whilst kosher slaughter isn't good either. Compare the progress made by a relatively tiny number of Jews, to that of a huge population of Muslims.

    The problem is not Muslims exactly, most of them are regular people who've been indoctrinated into an evil barbaric cult. The problem is Islam, the religion. It needs to be revised from the inside, and you need to keep Islam at arms length whilst talking freely about it and its problems. Large populations of Muslims coming from shitholes will mean an unacceptably small percentage will assimilate to more civilised countries. The influx has to be controlled and kept manageable.

    It's slanderous to say otherwise.
    There's more than just ISIS. There's attitudes towards gays, attitudes towards people who 'mock' the murdering looting paedophile, other 'blasphemy' or apostasy, anti-semitism, misogyny, incest. An awful lot of moderate Muslims will have a distasteful view one or more of those issues.

    Another terrorist attack and another round of beating around the bush by "liberal" media.

    But the country also needs to think hard about what it offers its immigrants, especially as the second and third generations grow up. Unlike Britain or France, Spain has no ministers or political leaders and scarcely any national-team footballers of immigrant extraction. For Muslim and other immigrants to feel they belong, that will have to change.
    Because there have been no terror attacks in Britain or France? Am I the only one sick of such non sequitur analysis? Surely not.

    It's a really really complicated problem though and very difficult to discuss. Look at Scalys posts here. The first one was atrocious, could easily (and would easily) be taken as advocating for a mass murder that'd make Hitler blush. His second post was much more measured, separating the individuals from the ideology. The point is you have one person, with (presumably) one opinion with vastly different conclusions drawn because of the tone and connotation of the words used.

    I'm generally pretty critical of the media but I completely understand why the average article struggles to analyse the problem with any rigor. They're right to be exceedingly careful with criticism. The situation warrants it.

    What I think we could all do with less of is the "but Christianity/Judaism" that occurs whenever Islam is criticised. It's too easy a way out for people who don't want to look at Islam's problems that don't exist in the same way in the current iterations of other monotheistic religions.

    Careful, measured criticism, yeah. Masochistic? Nah. Talking about not having immigrant footballers is laughable relative to what's really driving the problem. Takes skill to miss the mark by that much.
