33,333 – The Shocking and Murderous Number You All Must Know About

Jun 22, 2018

OK, by the time you read this, it will likely no longer be 33,333. The number will be higher, but the statistic is utterly telling, and should shock every single one of us. So what am I talking about? You can see the graphic for yourself. It says this: “Islamic terrorists have carried out more than 33,333 deadly terror attacks since 9/11.”

It is found at this rather depressing but indispensable website, www.thereligionofpeace.com/

The folks at TheReligionofPeace.com have been performing an incredible and invaluable service to humanity by meticulously keeping track of just how peaceful the religion of peace really is. Every attack, every killing, every assault, and every suicide blast is recorded and documented.

Try to let this latest number sink in. Indeed, let me break the numbers down for you. Since that horrific day in 2001, we have had 6,128 days come and go. Take the number of deadly Islamic jihad attacks and do the math. But let me save you the trouble. That comes down to 5.5 deadly jihad attacks every single day.

On average, throughout the world, we have over five deadly attacks being carried out every day by this political ideology. And bear in mind that this is NOT a list of every Islamic jihad attack. It only covers those that result in innocent men, women and children being killed.

If a period of nearly 17 years is hard to fathom, let me tell you what has happened just during the last full week, since this terrific website offers us that information as well. From June 9 to June 15, 2018, there were 46 Islamic attacks killing 242 people and injuring a further 219 others. That took place in 13 countries and it included 11 suicide attacks.

Hmmm, ‘religion of peace’ you say? So what is behind all this? It is quite simple really. A devout Muslim emulates and fully follows Muhammad, and if he killed, maimed and went to war to spread the faith – and he did – then the faithful Muslim today will do just the same.

Is every Muslim a terrorist then? No, but every Muslim is a potential terrorist, given their belief system. While the majority of Muslims do not engage in deadly terrorist attacks, that is not the real issue. The issue is Islam. It is a radical belief system that enjoins, encourages and urges death and the killing of infidels for the sake of Allah.

The Koran, hadith and sira are full of instructions, examples and commands on this. No devout Muslim can avoid what is said there. This is the sad reality we all must face. As Mark Steyn put it several years ago: “There is a crude arithmetic here: the more Muslims you have, the more terrorism you have.”

Do some non-Muslims kill for their faith? Yes. But there is simply no comparison here. Another terrific service TROP offers is to look at how things hot up during the month of Ramadan. As I and others have often pointed out, terror and jihad actually INCREASE during this annual Islamic holy month. See here for example: billmuehlenberg.com/2014/07/02/ramadan-and-jihad/

But getting back to TROP, they have an annual Ramadan Bombathon. Consider the just recently concluded 2018 Ramadan. Here is the final score: There were 182 Islamic terror attacks that resulted in 854 people being killed. During this period there was just one attack from all the other religions combined resulting in the death of one person. Oh, and the number of Muslims killed by “Islamophobes” was zero.

And just by way of comparison, during Ramadan in 2017, there were a few less attacks (174) but there were many more people killed sadly (1595). See here for more on this: www.ar15.com/forums/General/Ramadan-Bombathon-2018–FINAL-SCORE-/5-2110145/

There is something about Islam. Those wanting more on this can consult the 532 other articles I have written on Islam found on this website, or the 264 pieces on terrorism I have penned. If you say you want to learn more, and desire a book list on the topic, well, that I have as well. Consider this 2012 recommended reading list which features around 130 helpful titles. (I hope to offer an updated bibliography soon – so stay tuned.)

But if you prefer something other than what I and TROP offer, there are plenty of other sources you can check out. Let me mention just one which obviously deals with the scene in Europe. I refer to the Voice of Europe website. And a brand-new article there is well worth sharing.

It has this shocking title: “45% increase in terror attacks across Europe”. The article begins:

Frightening figures were released on Wednesday by the EU police agency, Europol, as part of its terrorism report. The number of attacks in 2017 rose by a massive 45 percent compared to 2016 figures. The number of terrorist attacks increased from 142 in 2016 to 205 in 2017. Last year 68 people were killed and 844 injured. In 2016, 142 people were killed, but fewer than half were injured, with 379 victims.

That there were only half as many deaths is down to the fact that attackers are ‘less organised’ than previously and also due to emergency services prompt intervention. Of the 68 deaths in 2017, 62 were attributed to Islamists. By far the most attempted or actual attacks were again in the UK, followed by France.
voiceofeurope.com/2018/06/45-increase-in-terror-attacks-across-europe/

Wow. These numbers should concern every single one of us. Indeed, I have some family members who will soon be in Europe. Their safety is a genuine worry. The world has become exceedingly less safe because of one major world religion, which also happens to be a rather ruthless political ideology.

Beware.

A Necessary Postscript

Some people will always ask me when they read a piece like this: But how should the Christian respond? Should we live in fear? Should we not seek to reach Muslims with the gospel? I have written on this often, and I have repeatedly said the following:

The Christian response to Islam is twofold: love Muslims while resisting Islam. As hard as it may be, we must do both simultaneously: stand up for freedom on the political level and resist stealth jihad, while loving and reaching out to individual Muslims, bringing Christ’s message of salvation to Muslim friends and contacts. So to warn about the very real dangers of political Islam and creeping sharia does not mean we don’t seek to reach out to individual Muslims with love and the gospel.

  • The biggest and most common mistake people make on this subject is being unable to separate the ideology from the person. You can despise what Islam stands for whilst loving the people deceived by it. I never allow myself to by led into longer discussions about individuals, but I always direct the conversation towards the topic of the teachings of Mohammed vs. Jesus. Generally, people cannot handle that, and walk away. If nothing else, it saves a lot of time. You can talk about this person and that person forever and get absolutely nowhere. I’m not so much interested in winning an argument as I am interested in talking about what actually matters.

    Unfortunately, we live in times where a great many people hate truth. And we can see the result of that is a great many people dead, and an even greater number left behind grieving that loss. How much need there is in this world for the saving hand of the one true God.

  • Thank you again for another well-balanced dose of reality. I have read the hadith and sira, and it certainly is disconcerting. Christ says for us to be shrewd as serpents and gentle as doves. I believe that fits quite well in simultaneously dealing with the stealth jihad [taqqiya] and being Christ ambassadors. Thank you.

  • Greetings Bill,
    Very informative but disturbing piece, am just wondering if you’ve been inclined in the past to forward the likes of this story to any in the MSM, eg Rita Panahi, with a view to alerting the gullible masses out there as to the intrinsic nature of Islam. Keep up the good work, God’s blessings to you.

  • Thanks Harry. Articles like this do tend to make the rounds, especially in cyberspace, and people like Andrew Bolt – and others like him – if they are not too busy, may see them now and then.

  • G’day Bill,
    Funny how the left defends Islam, ‘you can’t blame Muslims for the actions of a few’ but the same useful idiots blame all men for the evil of a murderous attack on a woman….

  • At prayer group last night I opened 2 Corinthians 6 v14. “Do not try to work together as equals with unbelievers, for it cannot be done. How can right and wrong be partners? How can light and darkness live together? How can Christ and the Devil agree? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? How can God’s temple come to terms wit pagan idols? For we are the temple of the living God! etc…

    I had a Muslim man homestay with me for 9 months and we were very friendly, etc., and spoke so much about religion.

    After I delivered him to his new digs, I never heard from him again. No contact whatsoever and I had been called “Mum” for 9 months…

  • Thank you and May you be blessed by Lord Jesus Christ for bringing the truth of a disturbing so-called peaceful cult. Thank you Bill Muehlenberg.

  • Thanks for putting TROP in the spotlight. I am amazed he hasn’t been targeted like the French cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo. Perhaps he is flying under their radar since he is doing nothing but reporting the truth and not drawing cartoons that deliberately rile them. (Muslims freak at depictions of their Mo). Besides, most terrorists want the news out there, because they want to scare the world anyway.
    BTW. It is worth mentioning that TROP is understating the carnage by only reporting the recognised incidents that can be double-checked in the media! There would be multiple times more destruction that goes unreported, plus TROP does not report many lower level incidents like rape, exclusion from education, slavery. And even in our own county – polygamy, welfare fraud, drug running, Halal blackmail, education fraud, etc etc etc.
    If it wasn’t for the oil money, Islam would be a shadow of threat it is today.

  • Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?

    You might in Montana. Don’t try it in Mecca.

    Why?

    Because, Islam trains a small number of its most devout believers it’s OK to kill. And Islamic killers have been trained to kill anyone who insults Allah and/or Mohammad.

    In Montana you’d have a good chance none of these Islamic killers would see you.

    In Mecca you wouldn’t last five minutes. One of Islam’s killers would come from out of nowhere and kill you. It is that simple.

    You don’t believe me? Ask any Muslim!

  • Another site is www.jihadwatch.org/ but we should also view after that www.numberofabortions.com/ to remind us we have our own house to put in order. I think it is truly evil to rape and murder those who aren’t Muslim’s, based solely on the fact you are, and anyone outside your group is the enemy. This at least has some club mentality to it, however, murdering your own baby and justifying it by changing the word, murder to abortion should be the ultimate in wickedness and self-deception I think.

    Some of us girls were taken to the maternity unit for a visit to the local hospital, those chosen were all those who spoke positively about babies in SRE, my dad said it was supposed to put the fear of God into us (I fear God and my Dad with a visit to see lovely babies), he went on to say the person who considers that as reality knows nothing about 15-year-old girls.
    My friend, Katie, asked, Miss on the way back what the purpose of the visit was, as they wouldn’t let us hold the babies we could only see them through a glass panel, the teacher responded with it was part of our education, plainly I couldn’t let that go I only needed one more yellow card to get a detention the following Monday so I responded with you mean indoctrination, Miss? What was amusing was the look on her face when she asked what we thought of the babies, 5 of the girls responded with “I want one” and I responded with I want 3, one black, one white and one Asian, as I wanted the school to be proud of my education in multiculturalism and inclusivity, well unless you happen to be a baby in its mother’s womb of course, that didn’t get me my 3rd card so I could get the reward of putting a teacher on detention (one has to sit in with me or I just walk out) with nothing to lose now I pushed on by asking the teacher if she was going to take some of the Muslim boys to the next display of “the religion of peace” with a Van, Bomb or knife which will probably be next week. Plainly that was met by deadly silence from the other girls who probably thought it was a good idea, Miss just responded with a sigh. I do not know why anyone would want to become a prison guard policing the thoughts of the next generation as no doubt they had been, best just have a baby of your own then you have the moral right (From God) to raise that child with your values, unless, of course, you live in a socialist state then you just get to see your child through a Glass pain, while the immoral get to work on the child you decided not to abort as it was Tuesday and it was raining! Once you trigger an idea in my head my thoughts just fall to my fingers through the keyboard and out into the whole world Mr Muehlenberg.

    Its Friday, no school tomorrow hooray, and I have a babysitting to do tomorrow it’s so exciting I do hope she cries so I can pick her up, and my friend and I are allowed to take the neighbors toddlers to the park on Sunday I think it’s so their daddy may watch the football, as my dad and brother were pleased I wasn’t going to be around to talk to them while the match was on, well, at them really.

    Thank you for your interesting posts, Mr Muehlenberg I have read half of the lesson you pointed me too I would have read it all but JJ, a boy, was being really annoying. I will read the other half in bed tonight and respond with my thoughts next week.

  • >>Lorraine Twentyman,
    I think that passage 2 Corinthians 6 v14. Is very informative, as regards your Muslim friend Lorraine, Muslims hold mothers in high regard so you did make an impact on your friend, love has a way of invoking the word mother even across cultures.
    The Muslim Girls in my class have a lot in common with me, we both hold purity as a high virtue, both respect our parent(s), always hand our homework in on time, we are respectful to the teachers, well I may be lacking in that area perhaps, but we never get close, as there is a barrier that is difficult to break down, like I would not be allowed to do my homework at one of those Muslim girls homes, as the girls family would not welcome me and my dad would not let me go into someone’s home who he does not know, especially with the Muslim grooming gangs being around us.
    The other thing is that a Muslim is allowed to lie to a non-Muslim. I don’t mean like when you leave something out when you are talking to your Dad but an actual lie. So you are never sure if you are on the same level if you know what I mean.
    It seems to me you were loving and kind to that Muslim, and in your company, he was so with you. I suspect you will never see him again, the invisible barrier that I detect you also detected. I think Mr Muehlenberg will be pleased with your actions, as he is big on kindness and loving people who do not deserve it, but Jesus did too. I am lacking in that area too.

  • I wonder when people will fully wake up and fight back…

    Lorraine – that is sad!

  • Thank you Bill for sharing this reality.

  • Youtube videos by David Wood are quite informative on this topic.

  • Thanks Jan. Yes he has many great videos, eg.:
