    the one in the right is treated as less than human in many regards. can she drive a car in saudy arabia? how about remove her burka w/o being lashed a few times?

    aside from that, I have no problem with either pic.

    No problem with violent extremism mixed with nationalism mixed with religion?

    I dunno, she can run around with a gun and holy book without impediment, apparently.

    The woman on the right is free to dress how she wants, speak her mind publicly, defend herself with arms and worships as she sees fit.

    And there is a satirical element to the tweet.

    The woman on the left would be stoned for being raped or walking around alone at night, probably isn't allowed to drive, or read, or go to a movie or do much of anything other than blow people up. Oh, and she isn't free to worship. Changing faiths would result in a beheading probably.

    Satirical? Good question.

    1.what is "violent" about the woman on the left?

    2. the woman on the left is posing right outside her some, the one one the right better pose inside a cave before she gets caught & beheaded.

    neither woman affects you.

    ----------

    I think you have them flipped, on my PC the American is on the left, the Muslim is on the right.

    I prefer to focus on the common ground. Both want to use their religion to control others.

    Typo. Though she would probably be gunned down by a SWAT in several parts of the country.

    Were it legal/easy to possess one in the US, I'm sure American girl would too.

    The worst part is that you actually believe that.

    I'm curious to know what the text says captioning the picture of the woman in green, and its context. Is it similar to the text and context of that of the woman in blue?

    Brandishing a deadly weapon?

    And, I have to ask, why didn't you write "what's violent about either woman?" Are you implying lefthand woman isn't violent, but righthand woman is?

    Not sure about the text in the Tweet. But, this is from getty Images.

    Her videotaped message (from Wikipedia)

    I see no difference. They are both holding one of the most dangerous objects in all of human history.

    Religious texts.

    I was staring straight at her for the longest time and never even noticed she was holding a firearm or bible. Weird.

    Well lets look beyond that.

    Compare and contrast.

    Reem Riyashi:

    • Muslim
    • Suicide bomber
    • Abandoned her two children
    • Killed two Israeli soldiers a policeman and a civilian security worker.
    • Injured Seven other Israelis and four Palestinians.

    Holly Fisher:
    1. No a muslim
    2. Not a suicide bomber
    3. Loving mom to her kids
    4. Killed no one
    5. Injured no one
    6. Trolls liberals on twitter for fun
    Sound about right?

    Holly's version of fun...

    deadly to who?

    I figured that a woman being able to defend herself would be deemed "violent" to you, so I did not bother with asking about it or mentioning it in the post.

    As much as I hate these people who feel the need to brandish weapons as if they are constantly under attack while holding a book about a man who practiced peace and tolerance above all else, these two pictures are not alike.

    I despise both types of people in these pictures but the woman on the left is just "trolling." I don't think she would kill innocent people. Woman on the right has done some bad things so the comparison can't be made. Has nothing to do with religion.

    Whoever is on the wrong end of the barrel.

    Oh please. If it were a guy I'd say exactly the same thing.

    What is illustrative about these two pictures is that if the "right" icons are used, our forum gun worshipers are very sympatico with the symbolism of such imagery. Apparently some of us are not that much different than Middle East fanatics when it comes to our religion and preferred weaponry to carry out God's will. ;)

    Has there been a glut of people suicide bombing and shooting up places in the name of ridding the world of infidels? How many of these people would pose with a Bible and American flag?

    For the record, are those all recorded facts or are you just speculating?
