  1. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    Not 100% sure which viewpoints you're referring to - besides one poster, who did it quite openly. Where did you make out such a sharp distinction? In any case, would be interesting to hear more about your criticism of the terminological framework.

  3. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    I respect that & not trying to draw you back in. Just a last remark, the question of a "true essence" of Islam isn't really interesting to me. In the end, real-life religion is what people make of it, no matter the theological credibility. And it can obviously vary a lot, from ugly, bigoted &...

  7. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    It originally seemed to me that you wanted to draw a one-sided causality: racism against Muslims as a reaction to Islamist terror. That's what my reply was about. But I understand you want to draw a different picture - an escalation between "two communities". Imo, that's very dangerous as well...
  8. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    You just replicated the most popular excuse apologists of Islamist terrorism use to give, only from the "other side". (Besides it's inaccurate - the articles say an argument about leashing dogs escalated into racist abuse and the stabbing attack.)

    That's what he meant. You may want to read his original post again.
  10. Champions League | Matchday 1

    Neuer casually sweeping, perfect anticipation. No one will remember it after the game, but it prevented a clear-cut 1 vs 1.
  11. Champions League | Matchday 1

    Coman like a right-footed Robben.
  12. Champions League | Matchday 1

    Coman has been really good today.
  13. Teacher beheaded near Paris after showing cartoons of Prophet Muhammad

    To posters familiar with France: Did the online campaign against the teacher mark a new quality in Islamist mobilization, or is there precedent? And is there something new to the responses from authorities and the public? Basically: Is this treated as another awful episode in France's recent...
  14. Should we try to be more like China going forward?

    Would you describe Maoism as, at its core, a modernist variant of the Chen Sheng -> restauration cycle or a new form of rebellion & rule?
