Islam: It’s time to speak the truth

WASHINGTON, January 22, 2014 — After the latest killing spree in France, many politicians have argued that “terrorism” is to blame, not Islam. They have said the same about attacks by Islamic fundamentalists that have killed thousands of people in this century — in the 9/11 attacks, embassy bombings, car bombings, civil wars and the latest ISIS atrocities.

This may be a comforting belief, but it is unfortunately not true.

Despite the insistence that most “moderate” Muslims don’t support terrorism, many do. Witness the widespread celebrations over the Charlie Hebdo murders in Palestine, Iraq, Yemen and other Islamic states.

    Murderous savages! If they don’t commit the murders themselves, Muslims encourage and pay the ones who do. That’s JIHAD! Muslims who deny they are secret jihadists are saying they have left Islam and are now APOSTATES who should be executed.
    There is no way a Muslim can claim he does not approve of terrorism without twisting himself into a skein of degrading and incredible lies.

    Western people don’t actually think Muslims are fully civilized and they never will, because Muslims don’t have all the qualities of a civilized person, such as respect for the Golden Rule, human rights, equality, free speech and the rule of law.
    If you miss any number of those, you aren’t civilized. The way for a Muslim to become civilized is to leave this Bronze Age Death Cult.
