Now it is always possible that I may have missed something here, but after a horrendous few weeks of Muslim atrocities and bloodshed, the scorecard still seems to read as follows:
-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Boston bombings.
-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the London terror attack.
-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Swedish rioting.
-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Paris knife attack.
Hmmm…. the silence is absolutely deafening. In fact, I am still waiting for the mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning 9/11. These public protests seem to be non-existent. And there are plenty of such attacks to protest about. There have in fact been 21,000 Islamic terror attacks since 9/11. Well, OK, 20,946 to be exact.
A very important website monitoring all this offers this incredible statistic – and more. The stats are simply mind-boggling. Consider just the month of April 2013. In that month alone there were 202 such attacks occurring in 25 nations. In those attacks 957 people from 5 religious groups were killed, with 2403 injured. Not bad, considering this is the “religion of peace” we are talking about here.
So there we have 21,000 terror attacks by Islamic jihadists during the past 12 years, and as far as I can tell, we have had few if any mass protests by all these so-called moderate Muslims who are supposed to exist, telling the world they clearly abhor all this violence and do not at all approve of such terror.
So what does all this silence tell us? Well, it could suggest that maybe there are not very many moderate Muslims out there. That is possible, although I suspect that the majority of Muslims certainly do not engage in such bloodthirsty activity, and hopefully deplore it.
What may be more accurate to suggest is that these “moderates” are either unwilling to speak out, or are in fact afraid to do so, knowing that they too will become the victims of Islamic terror for daring to publicly denounce this. But what all this tells us about the religion of Islam is far more important.
If you ask me, ‘Are there moderate Muslims?’ I will answer yes of course there are. But that is not really the proper question to be asking. The real question to raise here is this: ‘Is Islam moderate or peaceful?’ The answer to that question is a resounding no.
This political ideology – for that is what it really is – began with the sword, has been spread by the sword, and stays in power by the sword. Muhammad is of course the ideal example of the use of terror, violence, murder, beheadings and warfare.
His life is not only full of such jihadist terror, but this is all fully approved of in the Koran, the hadith, and the history of Islam. This is a religion of blood – built on blood, sustained by blood, and propagated by blood. Those are the simple and plain facts of history.
So it is the religion itself that is the problem. All that the jihadists are doing is being true to their own religion. It is the moderates who are adrift from their own faith. They are the ones who are not true Muslims. But the violent killers we have seen all too much of in the past few weeks are indeed the ones acting out their faith according to the example of Muhammad and the holy writings and traditions.
And now Paris
Oh, and in case you are wondering about the Paris incident I refer to above, here is one news report on it: “French anti-terrorist investigators are handling the case of a soldier stabbed while on duty near Paris on Saturday evening, prosecutors have confirmed.
“The soldier was wounded while on patrol in La Defense, a business district west of the French capital. Private First Class Cedric Cordier was approached from behind and stabbed in the neck with a small-bladed knife. Defence Minister Jean Yves Le Drian told reporters that he had been targeted because of his profession.
“His attacker, said to be a bearded man of North African origin, escaped and a police hunt is under way. President Francois Hollande said there was no sign so far of a direct link with the killing of a soldier in London on Wednesday, for which two suspected Islamists were arrested.
“France was rocked in March of last year by a string of killings by Islamist militant Mohamed Merah in the Toulouse area. He shot dead both French soldiers and Jewish schoolchildren before being killed in a police siege. In Saturday’s attack, the soldier was on patrol with two other soldiers and police officers at La Defense’s metro and train station, when he was approached from behind and stabbed in the neck with a knife or a box-cutter.”
While the spineless leader of France – like the spineless leaders of Britain, Sweden and America – cannot see, or rather, refuse to see, any connections here with Islam, the non-PC masses know exactly about such connections. As long as these leaders refuse to acknowledge that there is an Islamic enemy which has vowed to destroy the West, these attacks will simply keep on coming.
And don’t hold your breath, waiting for the mass demos by outraged “moderate” Muslims.
