    Who knew Muslim extremists are so deeply concerned about the environment?

    in my experience, they’re not. They strongly believe in qadr (loosley translated- “destiny”) and that extinction and other environmental issues are strictly the province of God’s Divine Will. Of course now, many sympathizers and borderline sympathetic right-wingers will start to shift their beliefs. because contrary to the expectation of idiotic Islam “experts” and Islamophobes worldwide, Islam is not an exceptional religion where things are set interminably in stone and adherents are mindless breathless zombies: it’s just another religion that shifts with the concerns and anxieties of the times.

    (Sorry for the caffeine-fueled rant.)

    Whether it’s real or a cheap CIA psyops plant, it reeks of desperation and attention-seeking behaviour. Why not take a position/fake him taking a position on universal health care while he’s at it?

    What is Onion-like about this article? It simply reports a murderous and blinkered political group hijacking a legitimate issue for its own gain.

    Oh, good point, Osama. I’m pissed at the U.S. over climate change. I guess the obvious answer is to blow myself up with as many passersby as possible.
