Islamic Terror As Religious Sacrifice

Somewhat like war, Islamic terrorism is founded upon assorted fantasies of redemption through sacrifice. Today, the universal Jihadist rallying cry, “We love death,” animates much of what is presented publicly as “liberation” or “self-determination,”[1] and is common to a broad variety of terrorist groups. This variegated collection includes both Sunni and Shia elements.

The rallying cry, always shrill, and always shouted in chorus, exhibits no core differences between ISIS in Iraq or Syria, and Hamas/Fatah in Gaza.

Oddly, this critical observation has been lost upon the administration in Washington. For some as yet undisclosed reason, the president decided to bomb the former, but (effectively) support the latter.

        Notice the 20-year out of date tri-color camouflage on the bottom photo.
        That top patch is the MSOB (Marine Special Operations Battalion) of the 1st Marine Division.

        You do realize that it is wrong, don’t you?

        It is NOT “the 13 doctrines of radical islam and ISIS”.

        These are 13 of the many violent doctrines of all Islam in the Koran.

    Says the terrorist leadership: “I is the sacrificer and you is the sacrificee.”

    The Pals are regressing to an earlier, more violent outlook. They sound like Aztecs

    Speaking on official PA (Palestinian Authority) TV, on November 7, 2014, a senior Fatah official literally blessed all Islamic killers of Israelis, stating: “Jerusalem needs blood in order to purify itself of Jews.”

    Islam is child abuse. This is as bad or worse than the Hitler Youth.
