Maybe we should use some less provocative language here? Were Timothy McVeagh, Anders Brevik and the 15,000 (15,000!) murderers in the US last year "Christianist"? The word "Islamist" slanders a whole religion, and implies that the nutters who did these murders were Islam. Ranting about Allah while you kill people does not make you Islam, but it sure gives ammunition (if you'll excuse the pun) to those who want slag off a religion that is not their own.

Wikipedia: "In June 2001, a day before the execution, McVeigh wrote a letter to the Buffalo News identifying himself as agnostic." Wikipedia: "In 2015, [Brevik] said he has never personally identified as a Christian, and called his religion Odinism."

Breivik was somewhat religiously motivated as he obviously hated Islam. But generally he was a kind of a modern nazi. McVeigh's motivation was purely political and had no religious (or anti-religious for that matter) connotation. There is no doubt both were despicable terrorists however that does not give anybody the right to use them as an excuse for Islamic terrorism.

Especially after what we saw in Charlottesville, we know that minorities still have struggles today, and it is important to be conscientious of that, and make sure people know that Neo- Nazis, the KKK, and other white supremacist, white nationalist and racist/ islamophobic/ anti semitic groups cannot threaten them, and that we do not condone their beliefs and actions

I'm not sure what you mean by "Christianist" because the last time I saw a Christian do a terrorist act, they never did it in the name of God or screamed "May God bless you all" or anything of that sort. But do you know who do this type of stuff? I'll let you figure it out. It's probably the simple reason of why these attacks are so much more different than a Christian or an agnostic doing the same thing.

Even ignoring the KKK as an example, there's plenty of examples of Christian terrorism occuring in third-world countries such as India, Uganda, and the Central African republic. It exists, you just don't hear about it since it happens in countries the west doesn't care about, and Western Christian make the tactical decision of distancing themselves from their radical counterparts.

Christian Terrorists like Joseph Kony's Lord Reistance Army, the KKK, Anti-abortionist terrorists (at least eleven murders in the US) are seldomly presented in the same way as islamist terrorism. In fact, it's the same. Dogmatic ideology is the core problem and religious ideologies are susceptible towards dogmas and extremism due to their canonization of Good and True.

@ svitapeneela "Fairly sure" is perhaps a little ambitious. If the conflict in Northern Ireland were likened to a football match, then the Catholic/Protestant divide would be the equivalent of the colour of the jerseys. Team blue are not trying to beat team red because of the colour of the jerseys or because of the faith that they practice. The fact that one "team" is Catholic and the other is Protestant is purely coincidental and nothing more than an easy way to tell which "team" you are on. The actual "game" that they are playing is a conflict born out of the fact that Irish people were forced off their own land and replaced by British (predominantly Presbyterian Scottish) settlers, or allowed to remain on their own land but then be required to pay rent to British (predominantly English) landlords. The media (quite accurately) portrays the conflict as being between Catholics and Protestants, but they are not fighting BECAUSE they are Catholics and Protestants.

@blox6man muslims are the victims very often and death threats can be horrible. Especially when you are a member of one of the most hated minority groups in the country, the media is regularly portraying their radical and twisted counterparts, the president treats them like the enemy, and there is a large group of people who think they are the enemy, a death threat can be quite real, and very terrifying. Also, THESE PEOPLE HAVE LIVES, just report death threats when they come in is not a solution! The would be like the solution to a building having a gas leak to be, "just call the cops if a fire breaks out". Just put out the fire and stop making it seem like all muslims are the bad guys there are an estimated 50,000 members of ISIS, but 5,000,000 refugees from syria alone! Also, only 1% of the refugees are single muslim men, tell me what is so scary about women and children literally running for their lives and dreaming about peace they haven't had in over five years.

Jerry928, I have respect for quizzes, I enjoy them, but you are wrong here. The reason why Quizmaster uses the word "Islamist" is because that was what is was. The attacks were in the name of a religion. That's why there is no "Christianist," because Christians don't murder people in the name of their religion. I'm not saying there wasn't people who were Christian that didn't murder. I'm saying they didn't do it the name of Christianity unlike Islamic terrorists.

I don't think you heard what I said, so I'll repeat, and this time more slowly: Ranting. about. Allah. while. you. kill. people. does. not. make. you. Islamic. When Westerners coin a fake-word like "Islamist" to describe non-Islamic people [cos that's what they are] who rant about Allah when they kill someone, they are just being inflammatory. That's because so many people who hear the fake-word "Islamist" think it means "Islamic" - and it's an easy and ugly short-cut to becoming antagonistic to everyone of that faith.

How is it a fake word, Jerry? What does that even mean?? How can a word be fake? It has a meaning. A couple other points:

1. you do not get to decide who is Muslim and who is not. I'm QUITE sure that those who shout Allahu Akbar before blowing themselves up have very strong religious convictions. You might say they're not "true" Muslims. Whatever. They will say the same thing about you.
2. Islamist and Islamism have definitions and these terms are used by Muslims, for example Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamist and current Muslim reformer, to try and do a service for Muslims by differentiating between Islamists and other Muslims. Islamists believe in a political Islam. They usually support shariah supplanting and subsuming all other legal and governmental systems on the planet. Islamist terrorists, or Jihadists, believe in this and also believe in terrorism as an acceptable means to that end. Not all Islamists are terrorists. Not all Muslims are Islamists.

There are differences between Muslim terrorists and Christian terrorists. Unlike Islamists, western terrorists don't shout God is great before they kill someone, they don't send little kids with dynomite strapped to their chest into a supermarket to kill innocent people. Christianity unlike Islam, doesn't say that it's ok to kill people who leave their religion nor does it say its ok to take someone as a slave as long as they're not of the same faith. There are way more Muslim terrorists than Christian or Western ones, you're comparing an anthill to a mountain. Please educate yourself.

Just because more terrorist attacks occur in Muslim majority countries than in the West that doesn't somehow make it less of an problem. Even with Joseph Kony, Anders Brevik, and Timothy McVeigh there are still WAY more Muslim terrorists than Christian and Western ones. The fact that one would one think it's an equal comparison is laughable. There's a difference between stating facts and hate speech, some people seem to be so afraid about offending people that they have no problem infringing on people's free speech.

And you need to learn what free speech is, because political correctness does not infringe on it at all. "Free speech" means the *government* cannot punish you for what you say. It does not mean you can say what you want without consequence. "Political correctness" (whatever that means) does not prohibit speech. It discourages certain kinds of speech (often wrongly, in my opinion). It threatens people with social stigma (also wrongly, in my opinion). But you're still free to say whatever you think. You could utter the same racial slur everyday for a year, and no one could stop you. But you'd still have to deal with the social consequences. That is nothing new.

Perhaps you had to do 'Islamist' attacks because to include domestic terrorism and mass shootings would make the quiz far to tricky and long.

Why do you people confuse facts with hate speech? How is this quiz insensitive or distasteful? I don't see any racial slurs or anything like that on here, I think some people are overly sensitive and have a strong liberal bias that causes their views to lack balance.

It's actually not hypocritical at all. They are placing the value of the perception of a certain religious group over the value of a quiz on a website. Personally, the quiz rankled me a little. I'm not about to crusade to have it taken down because I frankly don't care, but this constant "Oh, you preach tolerance, but you won't tolerate my opinion!" grip is so stupid. The distinction is simple. Being intolerant of someone immutable characteristics (gender, ethnicity, nationality, race, and, to an extent, religion) = not okay. Being intolerant of someone who has those very not okay views = okay. Liberals (to use the term very generally) do not preach "tolerance" of every idea. They preach tolerance of people's backgrounds. There is a vital difference. Hating someone for being black makes you a jerk. Hating someone for being a Nazi does not make you a jerk. They are very different concepts.

jmellor13 Hating someone if they're racist is still hate, hate is hate no matter how you dress it up there's the hypocrisy. It's morally wrong to hate no matter what its about. That's not correct, they are placing that value over the perception and being intolerant of those views who see otherwise, I stand by my statement. Liberals often disguise bigotry as tolerance hence your misunderstanding. You've oversimplified things here, its not just as simple as being intolerant of intolerant views, its being intolerant of things that are facts which they're afraid could be misinterpreted as racism and offend people. I've know people who thought it would be racist to mention someones skin color. I've also met people who are think western terrorism is comparable to Middle Eastern terrorism which is a joke.

jmellor13 They usually have to use examples of the past with very few current or recent examples outside of governments, how often do you see a little white kid go into a supermarket strapped with an explosive vest because he or she has been pressured into it by his or her family or peers? They are comparing an anthill to a mountain. So no its not stupid that I've said they preach tolerance but are intolerant, but don't take my word for it this address below will demonstrate proof of your error. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/05/28/us/fareed-zakaria-liberals-cnntv/index.html

I may have to agree with @gzx5 on this one. If you disagree with somebody's opinions that is not an excuse for hate and intolerance towards them. This country was built on people with opposing ideas having open debates in which they respected that people can disagree. Also, while Nazis should NEVER be tolerated in society, responding to hate with hate is not a solution. Just ignore them, they're only trying to get a reaction out of their enemies, so they can play the victim. Don't let them. Just stay home and wait until the media gets bored covering them.

Why not do a quiz for terrorist attacks in general? Terrorists are terrorists, irrespective of race, creed, religion or nationality. No matter how much these men claim to be committing these acts in the name and defense of Islam, the religion itself doesn't and has never advised or recommended them to do these things. They base their actions on their own hate and personal beliefs, claiming the religion as a shield and using it to justify their actions. This quiz sends out a very wrong message, as if we haven't gotten enough of those already. Hope you take the feedback in to consideration. Would be much appreciated.

This is another wrong message. Bin Laden's interpretation of Islam is not just common, it's highly plausible and easily supported. The ideas of the Islamic State and Taleban would not be so foreign to Muhammad and his companions. There is a direct and I would say undeniable link, except that so many people are hellbent on denying it, between sincerely held religious convictions of some people and the spate of terrorist attacks in recent decades. It's a real problem and simply denying it, or trying to bury our heads in the sand, doesn't make it go away. There is no message inherent in or attached to this quiz. You are imagining that there is one because you are hyper-sensitive to this, but it's not there. When we become afraid that simple facts, numbers, and true statistics send out a message that we need to censor... I think that's a good sign we ought to consider why we feel that way.

and in this case, the idea that Muslims are somehow an oppressed group in special need of coddling or protection from unfair persecution I believe is wrong. While, yes, there are racists out there who hate Arabs, and Christians or others who hate Muslims, and their bigotry may inform whatever message they try to spread around.... there's no reasonable way you can claim that this quiz is doing that.

If there are such undeniable links, go dig it up, and show it to me. By all means.I know my religion and what its about and nowhere is violence and terrorism preached by Allah, his holy book or the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Islam is a religion of over a billion people, these radical beliefs are not reflected in even 1% of that population. Go take a count on the number of terrorist in existence and you will see that THAT is a fact. Lastly, I do not see any quizzes on terrorist attacks by any other group, religious, cultural or political. If you wanna tell me that Islamists are the only group who have committed terrorist attacks worthy of having a quiz made for them, then my friend, I am afraid you are the one burying your head in the sand.

Dig? You don't have to dig it's right there in the Quran in plain and unambiguous language.

Surah 47:4
Surah 8:12
Surah 4:34
Surah 9:123
Surah 48:29
Surah 4:89
etc etc etc etc etc
and that's just the Quran... the hadith are expotentially worse. I particularly like the one where the most perfect man who ever existed tells his thugs that if they are going to rape the wives of the tribe they just butchered, even though it could negatively effect their resale value on the slave market, they shouldn't pull out. Sahih Bukhari 3:34:432

Nothing that ISIS, bin Laden, or the Taleban ever did would be strange to Muhammad or his companions.

Did they ever decide for certain whether the bombing was religious or political? I remember a lot of terrorists groups claimed credit for it at the time, but some thought Qaddafi had personally ordered it even though he denied it. Anyway, it wasn't as clear cut as the others on the list.

Khamba6 Of course Muslims are not the only people who commit acts of terror nor do all of them commit acts of terror. However there are cultural patterns amongst certain members of the Muslim community rarely seen in the West and as a former Muslim myself who has travelled across the world including to six Muslim countries I've made some observations. Tribalism and it's hostile traits have affected the way countless Muslims choose to act as a Muslim. Almost every part of the world I've gone to I've heard the locals complaining about the disproportionately high amount of fights, sexual assaults, crimes, and hatred amongst Muslims living there. Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, China, Panama, you name it. This tribal eye for an eye mentality amongst many Muslims doesn't foster an environment for forgiveness amongst many of them when they face trials from outsiders hence the strong levels of hatred in many of their various ethnic communities in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and elsewhere.

Khamba6 In respect to comparison it's the GOVERNMENTS of only the USA, UK, and France in the West that have been accused of large scale terrorism not civilians unlike in the Muslim world. Unlike in the Muslik world, often do you see a little white kid in the West go into a supermarket with a bomb strapped to his chest about to kill innocent people because his peers or family pressured him or her to do so? Unlike in the Muslim world how often do you see westerners staging a mass protest uttering death threats and burning effigies because someone in a distant land who they've never even met insulted something about their religion or drew one of their religious prophets? Its a joke, there's no comparison. The Qu'ran itself contains things which were applicable to the time but no longer are and cause problems. Islam teaches its ok to kill those who leave the religion because Muhammed's converts were leaving and killing Muslims which no longer applies to today but is still practiced.
