In my earlier piece on the Boston bombings I mentioned that it was too early to apportion blame. Well, it no longer seems to be, with two Chechen brothers now clearly linked to the attacks. Brothers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 are now history: the former is in police custody while the latter was killed in a gun battle with the police.
We know they are Muslims who come from a region near the republic of Chechnya in Russia, which has been a hotspot of Islamic insurgency. They have been in the US for a decade, and have posted jihadist and anti-Western material on the Web.
And there may even be an Australian connection: “Two videos from controversial Sydney Sheik Feiz Mohammed, one condemning Harry Potter, appear on a YouTube channel under the name of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.”
So it seems once again we have another example of the religion of peace in action. In fact, since 9/11, just 12 years ago, there have been over 20,000 Islamic terrorist attacks – 20,730 to be exact. Consider the month of March just passed: there were 189 jihad attacks in 21 countries resulting in 988 deaths and 2093 injuries.
Yet once again the secular leftists, the mainstream media, and Western dhimmies are telling us these are just isolated incidents, and not representative of Islam. President Obama has been peddling this line for years, and we will hear much more of it in the days to come.
These apologists for Islam are quite wrong however. The good Muslim, the faithful Muslim, as the Koran, hadith and sira make quite clear, are the ones who fully follow the example of the ideal man, the perfect example, the prophet Muhammad.
All true Muslims are to pattern their lives after what Muhammad has done. Thus if he had many wives, so too the devout Muslim. If he married young girls, so too can Muslims. If he killed for the faith, led raiding parties, and killed his enemies, then so too the true Muslim today.
Indeed they are commanded to do such killing in the authoritative Islamic documents. Slaying the infidel for Allah is not only enjoined upon the faithful, but if one dies in the attempt, it is the only sure guarantee of making it into paradise. So there is an extra added incentive for Muslims to follow in the footsteps of their prophet here.
But we will keep hearing the usual claptrap that these jihadists are not real Muslims, or are only the “extremists,” or are just a radical minority. So the lamestream media and the other Western dhimmies will play down if not ignore altogether the Islamic connection with these Boston bombers.
Mark Steyn spoke about this recently with Rush Limbaugh and his words are worth citing here. As one write-up puts it: “Steyn reminded his listeners of the media reactions to other terrorist attacks tied to Islam, including U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, who was accused in the November 2009 shooting of 13 people and wounding of 29 others; the so-called ‘underwear bomber’ Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who attempted to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear on Christmas in 2009; and the Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad, who was a Pakistani-American citizen arrested for an attempted May 1, 2010 car bombing.
“‘None of these guys, none of these lone wolves, none of these lone wolves stretching as far back as the eye can see, are ever typical of anything,’ Steyn said. ‘We don’t know that any of these lone wolves belong to the United Amalgamated of Lone Wolves and Isolated Extremists. They’re all just one-offs — all jihad is local.’ Steyn compared that to the treatment of conservatives when anything else has happened, even if there isn’t necessarily a direct link to conservatives.
“‘[I]f some guy shoots up a grade school, even if he has nothing to do with the NRA and he has nothing to do with the tea party and he’s not the father of Sarah Palin’s youngest child, he is nevertheless, those people are nevertheless responsible for the entire conservative movement. Sarah Palin, NRA, tea party is always responsible and that is why we need to gut the Second Amendment’.”
Yes that is exactly how the MSM operates. Indeed, they are all so greatly disappointed that these bombers did not turn out to be white Christian conservatives. Plenty of these media lefties had said just that. Here are a few quotes:
-“Domestic terrorists … tend to be on the far right.” Chris Matthews, NBC
-The Tea Party was behind the bombings. Michael Moore
-“Let’s hope the Boston marathon bomber was a white American.” David Sirota, Salon com
-Rightwing extremists are likely responsible. Peter Bergen, CNN
On and on it goes. It must be the work of Christian conservatives – the religious right is obviously behind it all. But now we know who the real culprits are. So do we hear any apologies from the left and the MSM? I have not heard any so far. And what you are also unlikely to hear is any reference to the religion of peace as these brothers are further discussed in the media in the days ahead.
So we should not be surprised that the Boston bombings have turned out to be yet another Islamic terror attack. And we should not be surprised that it is basically left to the alternative media to get the truth on these matters out there into the wider public.
Dhimmitude and creeping sharia are alive and well in the US and the West. And so is the rising body count.
