Meet the Western Charlatans Justifying Jihad

After September 11, 2001, the cream of European intellectuals immediately started to find justifications for jihad. They evidently were fascinated by the Kalashnikov assault rifle, “the weapon of the poor”. For them, what we had seen in New York was a chimera, an illusion. The mass killings were supposedly the suicide of the capitalist democracy, and terrorism was the wrath of the unemployed, the desperate weapon of a lumpenproletariat offended by the arrogance of Western globalization.

These intellectuals have sown seeds of despair in a large Western echo-chamber. From 9/11 to the recent massacres on European soil, the murdered Westerners are portrayed as just collateral victims in a war between “the system” and the damned of the earth, who are only claiming a place at the table.

    “They evidently were fascinated by the Kalashnikov assault rifle, “the weapon of the poor”.”

    And yet, they don’t like it when the common man is armed with such weapons. Their fascination is with such weapons in the hands of those who enforce the will of “our betters”.

      Exactly, which is why communists in spite of their claim have never supported the common man unless he is one of their group.

    The author seems unable to discriminate between pretext and motive.
