....yelling, "Allahu Akhbar"
Hat tip Algemeiner
There has been yet another ugly hate crime in France committed by a Muslim against a Jew. A Jewish man in Strasbourg was stabbed by a Muslim man yelling, "Allahu Akhbar".
I would like to take this opportunity to digress from the incident in France.
The defenders and apologists for Islam are running out of excuses. Aside from all the terror in the Middle East and Africa, Al Qaeda, ISIS, Hamas, Hizbollah, the attacks in Europe and America, and the horrific civil war in Syria, there is just too much that is happening every day. There is just too much evidence and documentation in the Koran, the hadith, and the life of Mohammad. It is just as obvious as the noses on our faces.
All of this violence is rooted in Islamic doctrine.
So I say to Muslims in general-and with all due respect to the millions of you who are peaceful and don't hate your fellow man:
You cannot explain this away. You cannot continue to tell your friends and neighbors in the West that Islam is a religion of peace. You cannot continue to tell us that Mohammad was a kind and forgiving man. You cannot continue to tell us that the Koran is being misinterpreted by Islam's critics. You cannot continue to tell us that ISIS and Al Qaeda are not real Muslims. You are being dishonest.
I also point out that while thousands of Muslims who live in Europe, the US, Canada and Australia have gone to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS, we know of not one case where a Western-based Muslim has gone to those countries to fight against ISIS. That is very telling.
Aside from a handful-and I mean a handful- of Muslim reformists like Zuhdi Jasser, the so-called "moderate Muslims" in the West keep telling us lies about Islam as they work to advance Islam and sharia law into our Western societies. Those who tell us that sharia law is perfectly compatible with the US Constitution are lying through their teeth.
It is not enough to condemn terrorism and say it has nothing to do with Islam. Most of those Western-based Muslim leaders are lying to us. People like CAIR and others try to silence the critics of Islam by lawsuits or defaming people as bigots and "Islamophobes".
I mean no harm to American Muslims who are law-abiding, but really- Muslims should be ashamed of what is going on and their inability or unwillingness to destroy the jihadists. There should be a mercenary army of young Western Muslim men or Arab men themselves going to Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS. There isn't. I don't advocate vigilantism, but when do you hear of Western Muslims taking out the jihadists in their midst in back alleys of the Western countries where they live? It doesn't happen, does it?
It is Islam itself-not "radical Islam" that is a direct threat to the world. There are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, most of whom are not jihadists. Nobody is advocating that we go to war against the entire Islamic world. Yet, the jihadists must be destroyed by the armed forces of the civilized world and our Arab allies. As for the rest of the Muslim world, the message should be that the West will not become Islamic, and it is time to live in peace and respect all other religions.
Finally, a true Islamic reformation is in order. It is problematic given the wording in the Koran, the hadith, and the life of the Prophet. Yet, Muslims must find a way to live in harmony with others without regarding them as "infidels".
We have had enough of al Qaeda, ISIS, and all the other terror organizations around the world.
And we have had enough of religiously-inspired attacks against our Jewish fellow citizens in the West. The term, "Allahu Akhbar"(God is great) is probably the most honored expression in the Muslim world.
To the rest of us, it has become an obscenity.
