Muslims ATTACK record store in Turkey for concert DURING RAMADAN

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator
 

Muslims stormed a record store selling Radiohead tickets because they promoted an event that would allow drinking during Ramadan.

 

Story at Pitchfork:

Today, Radiohead is holding a streaming event to celebrate the release of A Moon Shaped Pool at record stores across the globe. According to Turkish news mediaVelvet IndieGround Records in Istanbul was attacked while the Radiohead event was taking place. A group of men angry that the event featured the drinking of alcohol during Ramadan entered the store this evening and accosted the patrons, before things turned violent. Video of the attack was shared on Periscope and YouTube. It has been reported that no one was seriously injured, though one person was reported to be bleeding from the head after being hit with a bottle.

It is important to understand the distinction here. In Islam, they will use violence on a street level to force people to obey Islamic ritual and sharia laws. 

Whether you are a Muslim or not, or whether you choose to observe or not.

This is a critical distinction between Islam and most other religions.

Variety has the story as well.

@mark Chadwick……..I think the Sufis said something like that

@yvette they have. The Sikhs are an excellent example of this.

Peter Netterville says: “The big, really big difference, Jay Kelly, is that the people here only express their feeling towards that backward ideology.”

Really Peter? I have seen some powerful opinions on here about Alberta politics, religion, and the future of Canada.

You might broaden your horizons a bit.

Peter, notice how each story that Jay “idiot” Kelly comments on, Betina “dunce” Dunn comments on almost immediately, supporting each other. That is exactly what Gordo Steele did when he brought down the Sun comments. Coincidence? I think not, just plain stupid!

Betina Dunn said to Lawrence, “LAWRENCE O’BYRNE… are you out of your mind? Imbecile.”

And Betina Dunn in a burst of demi-god intellect blurts out the most highly intellectual statement since the last demi-god intellect posted a comment (probably Sean Penson)!!

What a scathing come-back! I crumple to my knees and worship at the feet of Betina’s omniscience!!

Jay Kelly said to Marek Wysocki, "Marek Wysocki is “so sick of this violent, intolerant and backward ideology ….”

The Rebel provides a place where issues can be raised that cannot be raised elsewhere. That is not “backward”, it is freedom of speech."

The big, really big difference, Jay Kelly, is that the people here only express their feeling towards that backward ideology, the backwards ideology of Islam is put into practice by their believers in the form of violence.

Do you understand the difference?

Mark, that would be a great poem or song. Someone want to take up the challenge?

I wonder do they make the birds stop singing for Ramadan?

LAWRENCE O’BYRNE… are you out of your mind?

Imbecile.

Nice to see that muslims are attacking muslims, not westerners.

@ keith barnes..nudge nudge wink wink right, or a couple of nukes would be my choice

There is only one cure for Islam and that is to shoot all the Muslims.

Only joking Guys. Ahem.
commented 2016-06-18 00:19:49 -0400
Perhaps they just had issues with Radiohead being simply awful music?

I joke, as this is disgraceful behaviour.

My husband likes Radiohead though, and I think they are terrible.

He would have probably kicked their heads in!

You leftards that come on here , that will be taking place here in Canada in a few years
It all ready takes place in little areas in and around Toronto I dare to say

Ah, such a peaceful religion. No one has freedom to do or not to do, everyone is dictated to & you had better follow the rules unless you want this to happen or worse. What I don’t understand is why none of these men stood up for themselves & fought back. How anyone in their right mind would want sharia law is beyond the pale.

Lunatics!

Ramadan Bombathon 2016 Day number 12

Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia”.
We put that narrative to the rest each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks categorized by motive.

Motive – Terror in the name of Islam………………..Attacks = 96……….Kills = 753
Motive – All other religions combined …………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0
Motive – By Islamophobes…………………………….Attacks = 0…………Kills = 0

Those who live by the sword will be shot by those of us who have progressed.
