Komiso Yogi of the University of Tokyo: “…The prevailing and widely accepted opinion in Japan is that Islam is an extremely narrow-minded and repressive religion which needs to be ostracized and kept at arm’s length…”
Israelis mourn the massacre in Paris but they are not surprised. Israelis are disgusted but they are not shocked. The pictures of blood, mayhem and carnage are well known. The slaughtered innocent people strewn in the street, in the theater or slumped across the restaurant tables are tragically familiar. The murder is simply a duplication of what Israelis go through on an almost-daily basis. The suicide bombings are merely replications of the many that took place in Israel and the entire horrible scene has been played over and over in other parts of the world. Welcome to the world of Islam.
London, 9-11, Baltimore, Paris. It is uncanny and totally mind boggling to see world leaders refusing to recognize the rat by its tail as Europe and the US continue to pretend that all is well in the world of evil. It’s simply stupefying for me, as an American,to hear our esteemed president refusing to call a spade a spade. The word terrorist is hardly mentioned in the context of the surging terror and relating any of it to Islamist radicalism is simply forbidden. World leaders bend over backwards, so as to, heaven forbid, not insult Islam by contending that only about 5-10 percent of Muslims are radical.
