Tunisia: How UK’s “not Islam” narrative helps terrorists

Islam can be a religion of peace, but it can also be a religion of war, and many shades in between, including terror. The disastrous narrative that it’s not Islam, pushed by British PM Cameron after the Tunisia massacre is a massive boost to the terrorists. It’s vital that Cameron et al understand their terrible error

We’re going to keep this simple and short, because the message just doesn’t seem to get through.

In the wake of the horrific massacre by an Islamic terrorist of (mainly British) holiday-makers on a beach in Tunisia, UK Prime Minister David Cameron came out with a line we have heard from him, Barack Obama, France’s Francois Hollande, Australia’s Tony Abbott, and so many others in the wake of Islamist mass murder.

This is what Cameron said just after news of the massacre broke: “This is not in the name of Islam; it’s a perverted ideology and we must fight it,”.

    Abbott did not say that these atrocities are not Islam. He said that they are not religion, leaving it up to the listener to draw his own conclusion of whether Islam is religion or not.

      Dr Abbott is trying to out-finese his cabal of advisors.

      True, and he has since made some quite pointed statements about Islam. Still not the unvarnished truth, but then we have the internet for that.

    Islam can be a religion of peace

  • Islam is not at all a Religion of Peace – it is fully a Religion of Death and Destruction.

    • Seneca III

      Death, destruction, slavery, honour killing, female genital mutilation, torture, atrocity, animal sex, sodomy, institutionalised paedophilia, parasitism, inbreeding, serial brain washing and any other barbaric perversion you can think of.

      There, just about finished for you, Avi, although further suggestions are welcome.

      • You name it!

      • Justin

        It is all those things but it is also far more evil and far more destructive. It is PURE Evil!

    Islam is apparently, the religion of really bad vacations. I give it 1 star on Yelp.

      But it caters to a niche market – those who like the really wild, adventurous stuff. White water rafting without lifejackets, safaris in areas where dangerous critters abound (without rifles, of course, to make it more interesting), any muslim countries. Maybe ISIS should start doing some tourist videos, aimed at wealthy infidels: come for the beheadings, stay because you’re beheaded.

    If the jihadists were to show up at 10 Downing Street at three in the morning in four vans with a team of seven each, they could bomb and shoot their way inside in less than one minute; that should teach Dhimmi Cameron to stupidly claim that Mohammedanism is a religion of peace! http://i.ytimg.com/vi/_oWEtMidZUE/maxresdefault.jpg

      They won’t though, people like him serve their purpose.

      A lone wolf with his own ideas and opinions might try it
      but no way would ISIS plan a coordinated attack on politicians
      who happily keep the immigration doors open.
