It is pretty easy to look at the recent attack on a Jewish school in France was perpetrated by a terrorist, a Muslim terrorist to be more accurate, yet, as Zions Trumpet points out, the media is not willing to admit the truth
France Shooter Who Killed The Jews
“…Then the man was caught. His first name was funny for a neo-Nazi: Muhammad. In fact, he is a rabid Muslim, a jihadi who claims membership in al`Qaeda, a man caught fighting for the Taliban in Afghanistan by US Forces, who under President Obama’s rules was shipped to France, where he went nuts and murdered people.
Instantly, the press ran out and tried to control this news. Ed West wrote for the Telegraph:
It’s easy to get it wrong because so many of the world’s varied extremists, whatever their motivation and however much they might hate each other, focus their anger and loathing on similar targets – the state, the city, modernity, capitalism, and the one group who embody all these complicating, unsettling changes in the minds of lonely, failed young men – Jews.
…as for the tragedy in France, it does not say anything about Islam, only of human nature and its potential for evil. All that matters ultimately is that three innocent children, a father and three young soldiers are now dead.
I hate to bring reality into this, I am sure that reality is deeply offensive to fools like Ed West, as reality, or in this case the mere recognition of reality would make poor Mr. West feel like an Islamaphobe. Well, Mr. West, tough! Reality is what it is, no matter what your idealistic view of life says. The fact is that idealism falls flat on its face as soon as it runs into reality..
Now, the terrorist that killed seven people in France is dead, thankfully, and he certainly was not representative of all Muslims. Two of the dead soldiers this monster shot were Muslims, as MANY victims of Muslim terrorism are. But, Mr. West these acts of terror, DO, indeed have a lot to do with Islam. Again, some facts, most, as in almost all acts of terrorism are perpetrated by Muslims. And those attacks are not at all rare, so there is something deeply wrong here Mr. West. Something is deeply wrong within the religion of Islam, and denying that fact, in a shallow attempt to somehow appease radicals, will not stop a single act of terror.
People like Mr. West are delusional. They have somehow convinced themselves that identifying a radical Muslim terrorist as a radical Muslim terrorist will reflect badly on them. Not at all. Nor does such an admission of the simple truth make all, or even most Muslims bad people. As Rex Murphy points out, it is NOT Islamaphobic to call a Jihadist a Jihadist.
The recent slaughter of four French Jews, including two small children, has, in part, been met with calls for people to not paint all Islam with responsibility for the shooting — an uncontentious urging. No reasonable people are making that claim. But there also have been calls suggesting that any reference to the Islamist terrorist connections of the killer would be a species of Islamophobia. This is pure nonsense and folly.
It is not Islamophobic to note the motives and background of the murderer. In fact, it is a form of cowardice and evasion not to do so.
The number-one cause of “Islamophobic” feeling in the world is not a thing, an event, a philosophy, but a person: It is the (happily) deceased Osama bin Laden. If one decries Islamophobia, then one must condemn bin Laden as its Nile source. Bin Laden, more than any other person, has besmirched the practice and understanding of Islam and engendered suspicion of some of its adherents.
There are other sources of Islamophobia as well. Horrors perpetrated in the name of fundamentalist Islam, such as attacks on young girls going to school, the internecine slaughters of various sects, the cruel penalties exacted by the Taliban’s repressive creed — stonings, amputations and executions for apostasy — also feed the angry atmosphere, and they are not phantoms of a prejudiced imagination
Sadly though, Mr. West is so consumed with being politically correct that he finds the truth offensive. Such a head-in-the-sand attitude does not help anyone.
Oddly enough, if this shooter had acted in the name of Christianity, well, the media would have no problem bringing up inherent problems with Christianity would they? Heck, the Left never hesitates to blame “The Right” or Conservatives, do they? Of course not! They make that immediate accusation, even before any information about the perpetrator is known. And, even if such a connection is proven false, many on the Left go on making the accusation any way.
Again, the complete lack of consistency of the Left shows itself. But, what do we expect from an ideology that is so intellectually and morally bankrupt? If West thinks these attacks had nothing to do with Islam he might want to ignore possible future attacks
DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) — Dozens of French Muslims are training with the Taliban in northwestern Pakistan, raising fears of future attacks following the shooting deaths of seven people in southern France allegedly by a man who spent time in the region, Pakistani intelligence officials said Saturday.
Authorities are investigating whether Mohamed Merah, the Frenchman of Algerian descent who is suspected of killing three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three French paratroopers in Toulouse this month, was among the training group, the officials said.
Merah was killed in a dramatic gunfight with police Thursday after a 32-hour standoff at his Toulouse apartment. The 23-year-old former auto body worker traveled twice to Afghanistan in 2010 and to Pakistan in 2011, and said he trained with al-Qaida in the Pakistani militant stronghold of Waziristan.
Approximately 85 Frenchmen have been training with the Pakistani Taliban in the North Waziristan tribal area for the past three years, according to the intelligence officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media. Most of the men have dual nationality with France and North African countries.
The Frenchmen operate under the name Jihad-e-Islami and are being trained to use explosives and other weapons at camps near the town of Miran Shah and in the Datta Khel area, the officials said. They are led by a French commander who goes by the name Abu Tarek. Five of the men returned to France in January 2011 to find new recruits, according to the officials. It’s unclear whether Merah was among that group.
A militant commander, Ahmed Marwat, claimed in a phone call with the AP on Saturday that Merah was affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban in Waziristan, but provided no details. Marwat said he was part of the Jundullah wing of the Pakistani Taliban.
West and his ilk may also want to ignore the killer’s brother’s words of praise for his butchering innocents
(The Sun) — THE brother of the al-Qaeda maniac who massacred seven people including three kids has said he is proud of the killing spree.
The older brother is also linked to militant Islamic groups and is being held over alleged terror offences with his girlfriend and mother.
He told cops: “I am very proud of my brother. I regret nothing for him and approve of what he did.”
Proud of butchering children? Yes, Mr. West, YES,Islam has a major problem, with fanatics. And not just fanatics who kill children in the name of their religion. How about the manner in which Islam treats women? Of course, at least they have rule books for beating their wives right Mr. West?
(Toronto Sun) — A local bookstore has “sold out” of a controversial marriage guide that advises Muslim men on how to beat their wives.
The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who’s described in the book’s foreword as a “prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning.”
The store’s manager, who didn’t give his name, said the book had been sold out for some time, and the store’s owner, whom the manager identified as Shamim Ahmad, refused to comment for the story.
It wasn’t clear whether the shop has ordered more copies of the book, but it’s available at online Islamic bookstores and even through eBay.
In the book’s opening pages, it is written that “it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her.”
Later, its author advises that “the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.”
Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife’s inability to leave “his house without his permission,” and that his wife must “fulfil his desires” and “not allow herself to be untidy … but should beautify herself for him … ”
In terms of physical punishment, the book advises that a husband may scold her, “beat by hand or stick,” withhold money from her or “pull (her) by the ears,” but should “refrain from beating her excessively.”
Boy, reality sucks! Right Mr. West?
