Why is the Left so Dishonest about Islam?

Last week marked the one year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. The last month and a half has brought multiple terrorist attacks to the UK alone. The last few years have seen a dramatic rise in the frequency of these attacks both abroad and on our soil. On Tuesday there was an attempted suicide-bombing in Brussels.

Sadly, many of us are adjusting to the idea that this is becoming just part of our day-to-day life, and we just need to get used to it. It is unfortunate that we have no way of identifying the threat and preventing the attacks. It’s too bad there is no common factor that links these attacks together. It’s too bad these murderers pledge allegiance to only themselves, showing their devotion to being a lone wolf. It is good, however, that we can rule out one possible cause. Not only have we heard it from the left and their media, but before each violent slaughter, the attackers usually shout “This has nothing to do with Islam.”

Left washes its hands as tit-for-tat terrorism sets in

Welcome to the new world order where murderous retaliation begins to settle in as the norm.

All it needs now is a catchphrase. The Summer of the Counterattack Crazies, for example.

Or the Summer of Tit-for-Tat Terrorism.

On Monday, Metropolitan London Police finally put a name to the previously-described “white man” who was the alleged perpetrator in what was ultimately called a “terror attack” by police when a van was used to murder “as many Muslims” as possible near a mosque and a Muslim community centre in North London.

One has been confirmed dead thus far, and at least 10 injured.

The demonization of the working class enables the so-called ‘anti-fascists’ to get away with their false narrative

I attended the Gays Against Sharia, Unite Against Hate march in Manchester on June 11th. As the crowds assembled, some passers-by watched from a pedestrian bridge overhead, and I strolled among them to listen. The usual shouts of ‘Nazi scum’, and ‘racist scum’ rang out, which those who protest against Islam have come to expect, elaborated with helpful hints such as ‘Your daughter’s going to marry a black man’. Then a young couple shook their heads at each other and said, ‘Look at them. Just exactly what you’d expect the EDL to look like. White trash.’

And there, in a nutshell, you have it.

Islamists vow to murder academic who know Koran better than them

Remember! Even mentioning Islam puts the detonator in your hands!

“You thought you could buy social peace with your communalism,” he says, “allowing sharia councils to generally manage Muslim affairs in some parts of the UK. The Westminster and Manchester attacks are the death knell for that illusion.”

Gilles Kepel is waiting for a taxi on a London street corner. The roads are gridlocked, the cab is late and France’s foremost expert on Islam is starting to look nervous. He has every reason to be. Isis has placed this polished, polyglot professor on a death list, calling on its followers to kill him without delay. In France he has round-the-clock police protection.

Yet here he is, alone and unprotected in the British capital – “Londonistan” was the term he coined for it years ago – barely two days after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a Manchester concert.

I have just interviewed him and he has ordered a cab to get to another meeting. But it is nowhere to be seen. Ushering him into the Underground, I ask him what it feels like to be threatened by a group that specialises in beheading its victims in front of a camera.

“It’s not very pleasant, but you get used to it,” he says, buying a ticket to Oxford Circus. As we go down the stairs, he continues: “It feels as if the subject I have spent 35 years studying has turned round to strike at me.”

He was at home in Paris brushing his teeth last summer when his mobile phone lit up. It was a journalist friend contacting him to say that he had been put on the hitlist.

Liberals Focus on ‘Islamophobia’ While Christians Are Killed

The murder of 28 Coptic Christians in Egypt’s Minya province on Friday is the latest in a string of attacks on Egypt’s Coptic community. Earlier this month, a Christian man was shot to death by ISIS members in Arish, Egypt. In April, more than 45 people were killed and over 130 injured when bombs exploded at two Coptic churches in Egypt. This past December, another church bombing killed nearly 30 people and injured nearly 50 others.

John Robson: The obvious lesson about terrorists — they hate us for who we are, not what we do

Progressive manhood

Once again, we find ourselves aghast at a terrorist atrocity. Once again, we seek to console, rebuild and carry on. And once again, we wonder what it can all mean.

Consolation is the first task. And we must carry on, seeking better security without shrinking into lives of fear. But we must also recognize, again, that these people hate us not for what we do but for who we are.

‘It’s outright denial’: Psychiatrist slams ‘Muslims and progressives’ for denying link between Islam and female genital mutilation

A Bangladeshi-born psychiatrist has slammed Muslims and the left for denying the link between female genital mutilation and Islam.

Tanveer Ahmed, a Muslim who runs a practice in Sydney’s northwest, has castigated people from the progressive side of politics who downplay a barbaric and life-threatening practice performed on girls in Muslim-majority nations from Africa to Asia.

He took aim at controversial Australian feminist author Germaine Greer, who last month likened depriving girls of future sexual pleasure with vaginal cosmetic surgery procedures.

Ukip parliamentary candidate describes Islam as a ‘cancer’

A Ukip parliamentary candidate has described Islam as a “cancer” in a tweet praising the founder of the English Defence League (EDL).

Caroline Santos, who is standing for the Rutherglen and Hamilton seat in west Scotland was responding to a boast from Tommy Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Yaxely-Lennon, that his Facebook page had received more than 4 million views in a week.

“The state made him an enemy,” she replied. “Now look what’s happened! When will the state learn to listen to people affected by the growing cancer of Islam?”

Why don’t anti-fascists fight Islamofascism?

“…Today, a new fascism is in the air, one that also speaks of rule over the planet, not just for 1,000 years, but until the end times.

But like the rise of fascism in Germany, Italy and Spain in the 1930s, the West and its citizenry again seem unconcerned or unaware of the catastrophe that may unfold.

Even in the 1930s, when the Spanish Republic stood up to the Hitler-backed fascists of Francisco Franco, the UK and US refused to help the elected government in Madrid, leaving it to left-wing activists from around the world to join the war on the side of the Republic…”

Why Are Feminists Silent After Revelations Of Female Genital Mutilation In The US?

One would think the Vagina family would be outraged.

People wonder why some of us are so unimpressed with modern feminism. To those people, I would direct their attention to the news that a Michigan doctor allegedly performed female genital mutilation (FGM) on multiple young girls.

More specifically, I’d direct their attention to the lack of attention feminists have given this horrific story.

50 shades of green

“Being unable to cause might to obey justice, men have made it just to obey might”- Blaise Pascal

“Progressive man” refuses to recognize the crimes of Islam, not because he is naive, fine-tempered or tolerant. He does it because, unconsciously or subconsciously, he has already accepted Islam as a religion of Salvation. As he once in turn accepted Stalinism, Hitlerism, Maoism and the “Khmer Rouge.”

Joseph de Maistre, French arist”ocrat of the early 19th century, argued that man cannot live without religion – not religion as such, but the tyrannical and merciless kind. He was damned and hated, they called him an antipode of progress and freedom, even a forerunner of fascism, but progressists proved him right again and again.
