Robert Fulford: No matter how much Muslims despise it, the truth is that ISIS has grown out of their religion

It offends many Muslims that their religion is connected automatically to the terrorism and cold-blooded massacres that are currently creating chaos in Iraq, Syria and Libya. They believe that terms like “Islamic terrorism,” “Jihadism” and “Islamo-fascism” carry an unfair implication that all Muslims are likely to support such crimes.

“Stop saying these words, they hurt,” a Toronto imam, Hamid Slimi, urged the federal government at a recent conference. He’s the former chairman of the Canadian Council of Imams, currently at work on a global campaign, Muslim Messengers of Peace.

Everyone can sympathize with law-abiding, peace-loving Muslims when they feel accused by implication of atrocities committed far away by people with whom they have no real connection except their religion. But the connection is not as distant as they might like to think…

    If the shoe fits….
    he latest stats are that over 50% support violent jihad and 20% are willing to engage in it.

      Can you provide a link to the survey results?

        On BCF back in January I believe. It was a report by MI5 in the UK. The numbers also said over 50% of those under 15 would be willing to be suicide bombers.

    Dick punch their fake religion. To hell with them all.

    If i – as a Christian – have to answer for the sins of Westboro Baptist Church, then Muslims have to answer for ISIS. And, however the Westboro crowd were, they never killed anyone.

    • That “church” is as representative of Christianity as a bear is to all mammals.

      Muslim love to bring up WBC , but they fail to mention it is less than 30 yahoos when the islamic haters are close to 400,000,000 of which those were just the ones that would admit to supporting armed jihad and killing for allah. Imagine if they told the truth for how the quran calls them to hate the unbelievers and claim the Earth for allah to be run by sharia law.

  • Well, obviously.

    People do not read anything other than tweets and feel themselves more aware for it. Even a cursory reading of the Koran and five minutes worth of news watching would clue one in. Continuous denial is futile.

    ISIS is pure Islam and the quicker the camel jockeys admit their religion is a murderous cult the sooner they can fix it.

    Great commentary.

    We need more pieces like this. Enough bullshitting already, media.

  • Barrington Minge

    Funny how all these Koran definitions actually describe mooslims to a “T”.

    …”stop saying these words, they hurt”…Does suffering from Joooo-on-the-Brain Disease cause you physical pain, Sahib?

    the koran easily fits the description of hate literature under canadian law so why does’t some rich party take it to court?
