The NYT’s Ignores Jihad AND Protects the Muslim Brotherhood in Coverage of Egypt Palm Sunday Bombings

Muslims bombed this Coptic Church in Egypt on Palm Sunday. It’s considered the thing to do in Islam.

The lengths to which the left is willing to dissemble to protect its narratives in the face of jihadist savagery were on full display in the New York Times’ coverage of the Islamic State’s Palm Sunday church bombings in Egypt.

Primary among these narratives is the idea that Islam has nothing to do with jihadism, even when carried out by the jihadists of the Islamic State (IS) who explicitly target nonbelievers and indeed base all their actions on Islamic doctrine.

    IS {Islamic-State} is far from being the first or only incarnation of wild-eyed islamism … Ultra-conservative, uber-orthodox Islamic revivalists are a dime a baker’s dozen in Islamic traditions, throughout the centuries, the Islamic holy-jihad was a legacy of forced conversions , imperialism and slavery. Even in this the 21st century, militant political Islam continues to gain traction in the world’s failed Islamic states, spreading with calamitous results . The Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood , Al-Queda, Boko Haram, al-Shabab, Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia , Pakistan’s Jamaat e-Islami ,the mujahideen { holy warriors} of Kashmir, India, Thailand, Philippines , ISIS in Kosovo and Europe , Gaza’s Hamas, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Syria’s rebel fighters, Bangladeshi Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, ISIS and its sycophants in the West , the sabre rattling of Islamic supremacists in Myanmar,Uyghur’s in China
    …. the list is long……. From Afghanistan to Zanzibar violent holy-jihad is on the march. Islamists viciously vying to be recognized as the genuine Islam . The divinely inspired arbiter of who is or isn’t a true Muslim , what’s the authentic sharia and what is the authoritative holy-jihad that will implement the sharia worldwide . The narratives of ideological supremacy weaves tales, a thousand and one tales , of totalitarian submission , the ideology ruled by a bloody-iron-fist.
    Pluralism dies in Islamic states , islamic states just a few blood-curdling Allahu-Akbars away from mass internecine, sectarian carnage.
    IS is no mere collection of ideological psychopaths, they are extremely pious and read the koran in a literal and passionate manner. These religious zealots remain insatiable in their genocide against non-Muslims & Muslims seen as not Muslim enough , or to establish more enclaves governed by sharia . IS and it’s various mutations through the centuries , follow a distinct uber-fundamentalist flavour of Islam…….

    NYT has chosen which side to back. We”ll see how that works out.

    This is the same NYT that chose to ignore the Holocaust when it was happening and chose to ignore the Stalinist purges and the truth about the Soviet Union. One could be excused for thinking that it is an instrument of the enemies of freedom, the foundation of Western civilisation.

  • If the New York Times could tell me how many Mormons were involved in these dreadful attacks, that would be great.
