Andrew Bolt: It’s time to end this lie about Islam

THE Prime Minister is wrong. I’m sure Tony Abbott knows it, too, but does not dare publicly tell the truth about Islamic terrorism.

Abbott insists Islam had nothing to do with last week’s shooting of tourists in Tunisia, bombing of Shia worshippers in Kuwait and beheading of a man in France.

“What’s being done by Daish (the Islamic State) has nothing to do with God, it has nothing to do with religion,” he claimed on Saturday.

Is he kidding us?

The Islamic State, which claims credit for the two worst attacks and is linked to the beheading, has nothing to do with Islam?

For heaven’s sake, we can all read. “Islam” is in the very title of this terrorist outfit.

    Suppose it makes some sense to play such short sighted word games in Oz politics. That way the Saudi and Gulf states, etc, bribes don’t go exclusively to their muslim accommodating leftist party opponents.

    • Never in history has Islam been viewable as a whole.

      Islam, since its inception. up to this point, has been able to hide reality from its victims with its hybrid form of slow and distributed warfare.

      Now with the internet, the bigger picture is easy to see.

      Politician who think this Islamo fascists reality can be hidden forever are kidding.

      People are waking up.

      Politicians who deny Islam reality need to be purged.

    The socialists who control the media and politicians in the Western world love to embrace anything or any group that opposes our traditional and democratic beliefs, including islam. And the media still uses the old Soviet communist style of distorting the news to their own advantage. Thus you have the leftist Toronto Sunday Star with a headline story that islamic terrorism is not the real threat. Its right wing groups. Yes most terrorism is caused by right wing conservative thinkers, especially those damn anti-abortion people who are ransacking and killing around the world. Then you have that old commie Rick Salutin with a major story on how European settlers committed genocide against the peace loving Hollywood avatar paradise of indians. Yes you should be ashamed to be a Canadian. Then you have the media lying about a shooting at a gay pride parade in California, even though the police said it had nothing to do with pride activities there.

    Who cares as long as they wade in an ocean of blood butchering one another.

  • Saeid

    Yes Isis has nothing to do with islam. The evidence is for more than 1400 years Muslims lived without ISIS.
    ISIS and other extremist group are the reaction to the western policy in the middle east and the invasion of iraq

    • Saeid, you would be much better off if you stopped blaming everything on the West. Are Muslims simply little children, who are too weak and ignorant ever to be responsible for anything they do? It sounds to me as if you believe that to be the case.

    • Hey Saeid. What is your miserable excuse for Muslim violence in Thailand.

      You can’t blame it on the West.

      Islam is a cult. You have been clearly brainwashed.

      Good luck getting free.

      “Isis has nothing to do with islam.” Ha, ha, ha, – what kind of fool believes that crap.

    • Exile1981

      How do explain the barbary pirates? The murder of countless tribes by mohammed and his fellow savages? he sacking of Constantinople? The Grand Mufti endorsement of Hitler?

      The truth is islam has always been savages killing in the name of a false god after being whipped into a frenzy by a Pedophile prophet all for profit.The things you blame the west for are not the cause of muslim aggression they were the responses to the earlier aggressions.

      Why does islam seem to only attract the violent and the criminally minded? Why do Iman’s prefer to recruit converts in prisons and specifically target the murders and rapists with the tendency to violence?

      I’ll tell you why; those iman’s are only following the example of mohammed. He recruited murders and rapists and then manufactured a religion specifically catered to justifying the violent and sexual urges of those seriously disturbed people. Your religion is not a religion of peace it’s a religion of violence, slavery, conquest and death.

      • Man_with_Hat

        Agreed, though I would ask for a change. Profit is something honestly earned, though denigrated by our media and stolen from through lies by politicians, big mo did it for power and stolen wealth.

        Why do you ignore Western imperialism from the age of the explorers to the mid 20th century. Think about the colonial period, the exploration period where a hundred million could have died. Basically, Christianity has nothing to be proud of.

        The same with about 50+ wars launched since WW2 for the US.

        Clearly, you don’t care about history. You only wish to demonize that which you despise.

        • Exile1981

          And you ignore nearly a thousand years of muslim invasions, forced conversions, sex slaves and piracy before the colonial period.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I am bringing up examples where the records are clearly shown where you are bringing up nonsense and hearsay. The problem at hand is imperialism. My issue has to do with imperialism and how all imperialism is wrong. This is a proxy war between the Saudis and the Iranians. I say follow the money. Remember the West gave weapons and money to the FSA and it became ISIS and it is in essence window-dressing. I can’t believe people still believe this nonsense. We are being played.

            The fact is our leaders all believe in war, violence, conquest and death, so whether one supports religion or ideology it leads to the same place. Either GWB in the 2000’s called himself an evangelical during the wars he advocated.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            The problem is imperialism and where money goes. Both of those have to stop so we can have peace and no war.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I meant even not either*.

          • Say, you aren’t the dude who was married to Angelina Jolie, are you? The Slingblade guy?

    • mobuyus

      For almost two million years humanity got along just fine without islam. I am looking forward to it’s complete removal. 1400 years of islamic idiocy has been enough. And enough is enough with this death cult of losers, goat humpers and humourless clowns.

    • The ISLAMIC State has nothing to do with Islam? really?

      So, what about Black September and the Taliban?

      And those other splinter groups who murder at will?

      If you want Muslims to remain a cowardly, stupid people, keep up with this denial.

    • vimy

      ISIS is in response to all the Muslims they believe are a little westernized or to secular for there liking. They hate everyone Saeid probably even you.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      I agree Saeid because the West created Isis by funneling money and weapons to the FSA which merged into ISIS in Iraq and Syria. I call it window-dressing because even Al Qaeda joined that group. Sort of like putting lipstick on a pig and calling yourself a new name. It cannot be denied because it all began that fateful month in March of 2003. The West simply cannot realize the error in their ways. Iraq was better with Hussein. Just like Syria is better with Assad. Why does the West constantly want to bring either coups to nations or engage in nation-building or pre-emptive war?! But, yes, Islam does work. The West is trying to divide Muslims against Muslims and much of the issues have to do with the Saudi Arabia versus Iran, and the proxy wars. Remember follow the money. People refuse to ever ask how these groups get created. Hmm. It seems as if we are being played. Neocons never want to think about governments wanting to fool people. They love authoritarianism and government, as long as it is their ideology.

  • Vic Jenkins

    They can’t tell the truth about Islam. To do so would be to declare war on it. And that would not only be a nightmare considering how many Muslim enemies they’ve allowed in to our countries, but also considering that Muslims are now more than 20% of the world’s population.

    But then again the alternative for us is suicide. You pays your money…

    By the by check out this post about one particular piece of collateral damage suffered in keeping up the pretence at:

  • cmh

    At the heart of the filth lies the Koran. The Koran clearly falls within the 7 points of Canadian legislation required in order to be designated as hate speech. Write the Attorney General as he the minister responsible for the granting of the decision to brand something as hate speech. Consider petitions for this as they send a strong political message.

  • Is this another one of those lone wolf gunmen I keep hearing so much about?

    The lies people tell themselves….

  • moraywatson

    Now if only mohammed had nothing to do with islam…that would solve everything!

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I would say that PM Abbott chose his words very carefully. He did not say that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. He said it has nothing to do with religion. That is a big difference.
