There has been over 30 thousand attacks by Islamic Jihad groups since Sept 11, 2001, yet the apologists continually refer to "the Christian Terrorist Timothy McVeigh with his bomb attack in 1995" as a moral equivalent. One to thirty thousand? Does that seem equivalent? I don't think so!
The next thing the apologists say is "well, not all Muslims are terrorists", and CAIR assures us "they are out partners in fighting terrorism." It's all part of the definitions and the ideology:
- Islam defines "terrorism" as "killing Muslims without right". The only "right" to kill Muslims is for apostasy and adultery. As far as killing the Kuffar in attacks of Jihad, that's Qur'anically sanctioned.
- To say "not all Muslims are terrorists" doesn't help. The Muslim community does not assist law enforcement in apprehending "the fringe of violent Jihadis". The reason is Jihad is a an act of the highest piety. Suras 5 and 9 were revealed last, which means under the principle of abrogation, they have preference. The tolerant "early Suras" have been superseded or abrogated!
The next absurdity is the authorities striving to conceal the facts about the attacks of Islamic Jihad. Remember during the Orlando attack the government edited the Police 911 transcript of the attacker declaring allegiance to the Islamic State. They suppressed the fact the attacker was shouting "Allahu Akbar" as he fired and killed 49 people!
The notion that if we hold the Islamic community responsible for Islamic Jihad it will somehow make things worse is a flawed logic encouraged by the Muslim Brotherhood. Their thesis is the Jihadis have "hijacked" a peaceful Islam and are trying to get validation. And if we tie violence to Islam the "extremists" somehow "win". But this is not the truth.
Violence is inextricably linked to Islam. Over 163 Suras of Jihad in the Qur'an attest to that fact. To self-delude ourselves to think otherwise will only hasten our demise. It's time to deal with the truth. It will set us free!
