Many Americans no longer see the difference between Islam and extremism.

Two days after the murder of five soldiers in Chattanooga (Tennessee) by Muhammad Abdulaziz Andy Hallinen, the owner of a gun shop in Florida, posted a video clip in which he gave the word to not serve Muslims anymore, a reporter tells in his report RT Marina Portnay.

Many Americans no longer see the difference between Islam and extremism.


Declaring his shop "Muslim-free zone," Hallinen said further: "I will not arm and train those who want to harm my fellow citizens." The video scored more than 50-thousand views and received a lot of approving comments.

“Active anti-Islamic rhetoric in the media adds fuel to the fire of hatred. Radical Islam is becoming the rule, not the exception. Those who yesterday held moderate views are now becoming terrorists, ”said Portnay.

In the meantime, congressmen are calling for the creation of the Office for Combating Violent Extremism. Critics fear that the new structure will be used against Muslims.

“We found that with the help of the Office for Combating Violent Extremism, the government uses programs to work with the Muslim community to gather information. We just didn’t have enough for Muslims to think that anyone could be a government informant, ”said Robert McCaw, representing the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Against the creation of a new management spoke 42 human rights organizations. Some believe that the US administration itself, or rather its foreign policy, is to blame for the rise of extremism. “In particular, America was engaged in training Syrian rebels, who later became militants of the Islamic State.” The United States also intervened in the events in Libya, and then welcomed the death of the former leader of the country, Muammar Gaddafi, ”the RT correspondent listed.

“I truly believe that we did the right thing. If we had not intervened, Libya would have become a second Syria, ”Barack Obama said later.

Today Islamists have reliable bases in Syria and Libya. And the situation there is unstable, as, indeed, wherever the Americans have been.

“The US is seeking to overthrow the anti-imperialist secular governments in the region, such as, for example, the former Iraqi government, the current Syrian government, the government of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. The same thing happens in Yemen, where the Americans are opposed to forces that are oriented toward Iran. Such actions of the United States contribute to the growth of extremism throughout the region. America had a hand in the emergence of the Islamic State and created favorable conditions for it, ”said Abayomi Azikive, editor of the Pan-African News Wire.

There are fears that the terrorist threat will only increase. “Washington is aware of this and is pondering how to counter the spread of extremism. However, many believe that the US leadership should think first about the circumstances and geopolitical mistakes that led to the rapid growth of radical organizations. After all, the Islamic State group is at war with the American weapons in the hands, ”concludes Marina Portnay.

        Only here is the problem with the search for Christian extremists, the problem with the search for Buddhist extremists, the problem of finding Shinto extremists and Hindus. And Islamists in the Caucasus are crap, in the Vostok crap, in Africa crap, in Hindustan crap, in China crap, in the CA crap, in the Balkans. Now in the US and the EU they started to spoil. Isn't that weird?

          Inhumanity is hiding behind any holiness, and that is probably why you do not create an idol for yourself.

          Now we are evaporated that they are Muslims ... Tomorrow Buddhists can easily take their place ... Or who else ... But this is not sad, but the fact that many people sincerely believe that it is so ...

        Yes, that's just bad luck for the most tolerant, that in Russia, that abroad terrorism and extremism under the flags of Islam and with the name of their god Allah, actions are being carried out. In almost any modern local or regional war, the enemy is muslim.
        Maybe someone forgot how and for what purpose Islam was created? The region of creation (not birth - do not convince) of Judaism, Christianity, and as a reaction to Christianity - Islam - is one and the same, and these Abrahamic religions have Jewish origins.
        Despise any religious fanatics. Especially Islamic - well, very stupid (a herd of sheep, albeit under the control of a lion) and freely interpreting their religion. Even dogmas. This religion is destabilizing and discrediting even itself.
        You can be half German, French or someone else, but you will never be half Muslim, and this will be the priority when choosing the path.
        Religion is opium for the people!
        Faith is a private affair of an individual, and strictly religion should be separated from the state.
        How much more time and sacrifices are needed to stop accepting Islam? Or will we continue to blunt until each one personally collides? For example, I’m not going to sort Muslims into categories - it’s useless. I prefer being in a close socio-cultural and ethno-confessional environment. Let them live on their territories and better not climb with their culture into other lands. Never and nowhere (the last vivid example - Former Yugoslavia and everywhere else) have multiculturalism brought to good. Dilution of culture and ethnos, the introduction of tolerance of various kinds - this is not safe, but 100% of the differences and the accumulation of problems.

    And as for me, the seller is right. For extremism acts under the guise of being Islam. Like a peace-loving religion. And it’s easier to restrict Islamists in their rights than to constantly repeat after terrorist attacks that “Islam has nothing to do with it”. Because in this case there will be only an infringement of rights, not particularly stressful. And in the second case, the population will take the solution of the "Islamic question" into their own hands.

    If the Americans do not see this difference, then this is the misfortune of the whole people of America. Terrorism and Washington are links of the same chain. The growth of such organizations is not without US assistance. With direct U.S. intervention, large and small armed conflicts are taking place in the world. And this happens against the backdrop of an inability to control the situation in their country. How can one talk about the security of the UN and the European Union here ?!

    "Many Americans don't see the difference between Islamism and terrorism" ...
    But they are right within the framework of their country. America uses Islam to process the brains of adherents of Islam, which are very numerous in poor countries, and when in sermons in mosques there are dogmas about infidels that can be killed, a paradise in which every terrorist will have a harem, words fall into the fertile soil of poverty, hunger, total illiteracy. It is very difficult to resist people with processed brains, they speak languages ​​that are not understandable not only to Europeans, even many of the tribes in one small country do not understand each other. Sermons are not meaningful to religion, but those who listen to them they don’t know this. And as for the United States, their role in the spread of terrorism under the auspices of Islam is leading, they pay the recruitment of terrorists who fight in their neighboring countries, then disperse around the world. Seeing another world, they begin to bring them there same orders as before.
    The evil sown by the Americans will definitely return to the USA.

    And what, before that, no one was shooting at anyone ?!
    In other matters, such an attitude towards Muslims in the USA will lead to even greater alienation, and to conflicts, which I am very happy about!

    There is no difference between Islam, terrorism and extremism.
    This is confirmed by the entire centuries-old history of Islam.

      I was born a Muslim. I did not choose faith, (as it is customary. Defined, laid down, etc.) my native language is Russian, I think in my native language, Russian, and nevertheless I am Muslim! - And ..., you ..., dear, rank me among these fascists !!!
      - But!!!
      - Maybe? Have we met anywhere? I traveled a lot in the cities of Russia, and I have many friends (childhood, army, life) and I do not live in the Muslim Republic of Russia!
      - You are not right!
      - Soon Orthodox terrorists (dill) will trample, and they will already! So what? Now declare all Orthodox terrorists and Bandera !!!
      - But for "Geyropa" we are all Russians, (Bashkirs, Buryats, Udmurts, Komi) - terrorists, murderers, invaders !!! ???
      See the root !!!
