No, the Problem in London Is Not ‘Islamist Extremism’

Islamists want to impose sharia law on the West — which means all Islamists are ‘extremists.’

The Western schizophrenia about radical Islam is on full display in Britain, in the aftermath of the latest jihadist atrocity, the third in just the past three months.

Three terrorists rammed a van into a crowd on London Bridge and then went on a stabbing rampage, brutally assaulting pedestrians while braying that each blow was struck “for Allah.” A duly outraged Theresa May donned her prime-minister hat to announce that her government is “leading international efforts to take on and defeat the ideology of Islamist extremism around the world.” She also slipped on her amateur-imam cap, adjusted her rose-tinted glasses, and proclaimed that “Islamist extremism” is an ideology.

    May must be a genius if she’s discovered some kind of new “ideology of islamist extremism around the world”. It’s just literal islam as proscribed by the koran for the last 1400 years. Paul Weston has some good videos out about how terrorism is used because it works.

      I thought “islamist” was shorthand for “islamic extremist”. Obviously I was wrong and there are islamists and what is more, islamist extremists. Are there radical islamist extremists to make use quake in our boots?

    There is no such thing as ‘radical Islam’. There is Islam. Europe is getting Islam good and hard. Under Obama, America got Islam, good and hard. Boston, Ft Hood, San Bernadino, Orlando. Obama reveled in it. Death to America, Obama’s BFF, Iran shouted. Things have changed. We have now an American President. It’s been a long time coming.

      That was excellent. Should be required viewing in all schools.

    May send a stern warning to muslim terrorists that if they do this again there will be twice as many candles, bears and flowers at the next Vigil.

    What’s odd about these thousands of candle is that they may be made with the crude oil by-products that add to global warming as they burn. The same Liberals that embrace the Rapefugees and support fighting Global warming are now causing more Jihad attack and Global warming.

    she is getting there, islam is an ideology. once this shining truth is identified then religious protections can be done away with as we are dealing with an ideology. and an odious one at that
