Winds of Jihad: Is it our fault that they don’t love us?

“So far the ‘Hug them until they love us’ approach has not yielded any dividends, except more bombs and bullet holes, and bodies in morgues.” (TROP)

In a rational political calculus, we take for granted that the people blowing up synagogues, stabbing their sisters to death for wearing jeans, and kidnapping and beheading people they don’t like, are the ones suffering from a tolerance shortage. But to a progressive brutal violence by a minority is always a symptom that they are being oppressed, rather than that they are the ones doing the oppressing.

wpid-islam-will-dominate-the-world1Since progressives tend to define minority status as proof of oppression, violence is simply another way that the minority responds to being oppressed. So if a pair of well off middle class Muslim professionals drive a car bomb over to a Scottish airport, clearly they were reacting to a whole boatload or planeload of oppression. Perhaps they were outraged over a terrorist being downed by a drone, or saw the name of Allah in an ice cream cone, or maybe it was all the unveiled women. Those are just details in the bigger picture. And the bigger picture is that every First World nation is oppressive and racist. Muslim violence is comeuppance or blowback, and the only solution is to be more and more tolerant of Muslims.

Having classified Western nations as always being in the wrong, and Muslims as being always in the right, where reasonable people see a failure to fight terrorism, progressives see a failure to fight intolerance…

    That sums it up very well.

    To add to that, there has never been a credible peace process in the Israel/Palestine conflict.
    There has only been an ‘Israeli survival process’.
    There is no ‘two state solution’, Islam wants a one state solution, that state will not have Jews in it.

      Right. But the lefties keep saying Islam is Religion of Peace™

      But the problem with expecting people to think outside the box of their beliefs, is that it’s simply easier for them not to. For progressives the problem remains not Islam, but people who aren’t tolerant enough of Islam. Which creates a rush to feed the “intolerant ones” to the Muslim Crocodile of Peace, in the hopes of being eaten last.

        I believe deeply in feeding only real Crocodiles.

          Hugging the crocodile has not worked.

      Considering what they did with Gaza when they got it I propose they really want a none state solution.

  • bear

    But, they love to hug non muslim children.

    Using “progressive” logic, Jews were to blame for Hitler.

    That makes more sense once you realize that most progressives ARE crypto-nazis. That is their flavor of socialism.

    Leftards want to blame European culture for the rage of Islam. Replacing Europeans with noble savages and replacing Europe’s cultures with Islam will solve the ‘problem’ of white supremacism by REPLACING it with Marxism ruling over a bunch of ‘noble savages’ who won’t mind when their freedoms are all taken away by the ruling Marxist nomenklatura.
