That’s the headline PoliticusUSA ran last Friday in response to the Muslim terrorist attack in France. They go on to say blaming Islam for the acts of these bastards is unfair. That it is tantamount to blaming Christianity because of Timothy McVeigh’s murderous demolition of the Federal Building in Oklahoma years ago. To which I respond: BULLSHIT!
Here’s the whole story, if you can stomach it: http://www.politicususa.com/2015/01/09/hatred-stupidity-killed-12-people-religion.html
These Muslim fanatics killed specifically because their interpretation of the Koran demands they defend Muhammad's honor. Pictures or ridicule of Muhammad demand the offenders’ deaths. Period. Without that religious imperative it never would have happened and seventeen innocent people would be alive today.
When is Liberal America going to stop pretending that Islam / Muslims and the Koran had no part in this and every other Islamic attack the world over? Did Islam also have no part in the killing of that journalist cartoonist Theo Van Gogh in Amsterdam a few years ago, or the death fatwa still in place against the author Salmon Rushdie for his book "Satanic Verses"? What drove those acts of violence and incivility if not religion? When a Muslim apostate is murdered by a Muslim believer; or a “blasphemer” in Saudi is given one-thousand lashes for his “crime” is it because of hate and stupidity, or is it because Islam and the Koran demands it ?
Now, had they suggested that religiosity makes people haters and stupid, then they’d be on the right track. But to deny Islam’s role and responsibility for the acts of these fanatics is either the highest level of stupidity or gross dishonesty - overt denial out of some misguided attempt to placate Muslims and paint a pretty picture of “the religion of peace.” It fails on both counts. At best it succeeds in putting lipstick on a pig. It doesn’t fool anyone who possesses eyes, ears, a brain to process fact and reality, and who is not cowed by Islamic threats of vengeance.
Islam is where Christianity was eight-hundred or so years ago. Anyone who is not a follower of the pedophile Prophet is “the other”, someone to hold in suspicion and a potential convert. Anyone who opposes Islam, or who leaves Islam, or who offends Islam is the enemy to be dealt with as prescribed by the Koran, a preferred Hadith verse, or by a vengeful and maniacal Imam. How many more times do we need to see it repeated before we call it what it is: religiously instigated psychosis?
The Liberal press’ tendency to deny the truth, to sugar coat it, to cloak it in secular terms in an effort to spare Muslim’s feelings, or to appease those Muslims who stand ready to kill en masse at any hint of disgust and rejection of what Islam stands for, is an act of appeasement at best, or out right dishonesty at its worst. It’s time to wake up and call Islam what it is: a potentially infectious disease steeped in medieval ignorance and vengeance. To deny it will be Western culture’s death knell.
