I know you don't, I was just curious.

I've been called that before too and Liberal is always said with a sneer and sometimes used almost as a cuss word. I suppose it doesn't much matter in the scheme of things. I'd rather grow a beard & horns than be associated with the Republican party. In general they are a revolting group of hypocrites.

Maybe Biggie will explain what he means to you.

In my experience, "Fucking Liberal!" is one of those labels that often gets applied loosely and inaccurately by people who insist that their conservative views are true and don't want to hear/discuss other people's views or the facts. It seems like it's surpassed "Fucking Racist!" in that regard.

When used accurately, "liberal' essentially means tolerant and not resistant to change by default. I'm liberal in a lot of ways, but I'm not "a liberal" in terms of how it's tossed around by people who aren't liberal at all.

Usually, I see/hear the label tossed out when conservatives think someone wants to take all their guns, or they're convinced that advocating for equal rights means that THEIR rights are under threat........that kind of shit.

I was wondering why these particular Muslims were targeted.

Thanks for enlightening us about the Sufi’s.

It figures, the sect of Islam that promotes tolerance and, I’m assuming, education and free thinking, is a target of these vile, evil pieces of shit.

I’m still trying to understand how these spawn of Satan can believe that murdering innocents is somehow condoned by their God.

The Egyptian military has very good equipment/firepower.

I hope they’re able to destroy these cowards.

The vast majority of those killed by radical Islamic extremists are Muslim. ISIS (Sunni) has no problem whatsoever attacking Shiite Muslim populations and the Sunnis who don't support jihad (like the Sufis).

But, the Islamic terrorist groups have killed a lot of non-Muslims from many different countries and religious affiliations also.

Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram........all radical Sunni Muslim groups influenced by the Wahabbi movement cultivated by Saudi clerics and exported to other ME countries.

There are Shia groups classified as terrorists groups too (like Hezbollah in Iran and the Houthis in Yemen).

Egypt under Sisi appears to be aggressive in attempting to fight off radical Sunni groups infiltrating the country. I hope the Egyptian government succeeds in fending them off too.

The mosque attack was horrible. 300+ peaceful worshippers slaughtered in minutes; the entire population of the village was only about 800 before the mass murder. :(

"A sect of Islam that promotes tolerance" may be a bit of a stretch MS.

I hope this alliance succeeds if the goal is really to eradicate radical extremism rather than to formally align all the majority Sunni countries (80% of the Middle East) against the majority Shiite countries (Iran, Iraq, Bahrain) and further restrict religious freedom.

^ Top defense officials from 40 Muslim-majority nation’s met in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Sunday. They are part of an alliance gathered together two years ago by Prince Mohammed, who is also Saudi defense minister.

The crown prince has said he would encourage a more moderate and tolerant version of Islam in the ultra-conservative kingdom. The group of Muslim nations, called the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition, has yet to take any decisive action.

Prince Mohamed told delegates that Friday’s attack in Egypt “was a very painful occurrence and must make us contemplate in an international and powerful way the role of this terrorism and extremism”.

Officials say the group would allow members to request or offer assistance to each other to fight militants. This could include military help, financial aid, equipment or security expertise. The group, which will have a permanent base in Riyadh, would also help combat terrorist financing and ideology.

“The biggest threat from terrorism and extremism is not only killing innocent people and spreading hate, but tarnishing the reputation of our religion and distorting our belief,” he said.

Iraq and Syria, at the forefront of the battle against Islamic State, are not members, nor is mainly Shi‘ite Muslim Iran, the regional rival to mostly Sunni Saudi Arabia.

Qatar, originally part of the alliance, was not invited to Sunday’s meeting after Riyadh led a group of states seeking to isolate Doha, saying it supported terrorism. Doha denies this.

Abdulelah al-Saleh, a Saudi lieutenant general and the coalition’s secretary general, said Qatar was excluded to help build a consensus for launching operations. He also said the group was not aimed at creating a Sunni bloc to counter Iran.

“The enemy is terrorism. It’s not sects or religions or races, its terrorism,” Saleh told reporters.

The problem with this is that half of those guys standing in that pic have either been bad guys or will be bad guys within the next few years.

ISIS still hasn't claimed responsibility for the Egyptian mosque massacre. ISIS is believed to be responsible because survivors reportedly told authorities the assailants displayed black ISIS flags.

Snip:
Egyptian authorities announced that security forces have killed at least 14 Islamic militants in Sinai and an adjacent Suez Canal province following the massacre that killed 305 people.

The Interior Ministry said on Tuesday that 11 of the suspected militants were killed in a shootout on a farm in Ismailia province. It says six suspects were arrested there. Military spokesman Col. Tamer el-Rifai says three more suspected militants were killed in central Sinai.

Yeah, it usually doesn't take them so long to take credit.

But, this was such a huge massacre involving many assailants, and Egypt's forces are very aggressive.

So, it could be that ISIS is responsible but not wanting to claim credit until their 'soldiers' are safe or dead.
