After every single Islamist terror attack we’re subjected to the same BS from the media and the regressive left.
“This is just a tiny minority of radical extremists. This has nothing to do with Islam.”
There’s no such thing as moderate Islam.
Islam is a violent, intolerant religion which, in its current form, has no place in supposedly liberal western democracies.
Note how soccer fans in England impeccably observed a minute’s silence in honor of the victims of the Paris massacre.
Now see how fans in Turkey – which is 99% Muslim – behaved during that minute’s silence.
Same thing in Azerbaijan, which is over 95% Muslim.
Booing, jeering, chants of Allahu Akbar. Throughout the whole stadium. During a moment of silence for the victims of ISIS jihadists.
In Italy, Muslims school girls refused to observe the minute’s silence by walking out of class.
Is this still just a tiny minority?
Let’s look at the polls.
A poll conducted by ICM found that 16% of French citizens, the vast majority of them Muslim, support ISIS.
Amongst young people aged 18-24, 27% of them support ISIS. That’s prime reruitment age.
A survey conducted by the Al Jazeera Arabic television channel, whose audience mainly consists of Sunni Muslims living in the Arab world, found that 81% of respondents supported ISIS.
Are we still going to pretend this is a tiny minority?
A poll by the Arab Center For Research and Policy Studies found that even 13% of Syrian refugees – who are supposedly fleeing from ISIS – had a positive view of ISIS.
And hundreds of thousands of them are pouring into the west, including some of the terrorists involved in the Paris massacre.
Let’s look at more polls.
The vast majority of Muslims in Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and South Asia support making Sharia law the law of the land.
The clear majority of Muslims in South Asia and the Middle East support stoning women to death for the crime of adultery.
Similar numbers support the death penalty for people who abandon the Muslim faith.
A clear majority of Muslims support these violent and intolerant beliefs. How is that in any way moderate?
Even in America, nearly a quarter of Muslims believe that violence is a legitimate response against those who offend Islam or portray the prophet Mohammed.
Is that a tiny minority of radicals?
A BBC survey found that over a quarter of British Muslims had sympathy for the Charlie Hebdo jihadists.
There are twice as many British Muslims fighting for ISIS than there are fighting for the British Army.
And where are the voices of moderate Islam? Where are the protests against ISIS by thousands of moderate Muslims?
After the Charlie Hebdo attack, we did see thousands of Pakistani Muslims take to the streets…..to protest against Charlie Hebdo and in support of the jihadists who slaughtered the cartoonists.
Now watch this clip, where self-proclaimed “moderate Muslims” vehemently agree with the most intolerant and violent parts of the Koran.
Stoning women for adultery, executing rape victims, homophobia, segregation – all beliefs held by people who describe themselves as “moderate Muslims”.
Of course not every Muslim is going to strap on an AK-47 and gun down innocent people, but the very notion of “moderate Islam” is a myth.
By its very nature, Islam is an intolerant, radical, extremist belief system.
The problem is not radical Islam, the problem is just Islam.
And while feminists whine about a college rape culture that doesn’t exist, we’re importing a real rape culture into the west via the migrant wave.
Every week I cover stories of migrants raping women and children and getting away with lenient sentences.
Sweden’s rape figures have soared 1400% since the country opened its doors to mass immigration.
We have Muslim gang rape scandals in the UK on a routine basis, with authorities covering them up for fear of being labeled politically incorrect.
Rotherham, Oxford, Manchester, Rochdale, the list goes on and on.
The most common name for a gang rapist in the UK is Mohammad. The majority of child rape and gang molestation convictions in the UK are handed out to Muslims.
This isn’t the aberrant behavior of a radical minority. This is the culture of Islam. This is the rape culture that U.S. soldiers have been told to ignore because it’s so common in Afghanistan.
And where are the voices of so-called “progressive” left?
As Michel Houellebecq says, “On the level of what we customarily call values, Muslims have more in common with the extreme right than with the left.”
Homosexualiy, women’s rights, secular democracy vs theocracy.
So why are liberals only comfortable in opposing the extreme right, and not Islam, when it comes to these values?
Why are liberals happy to ignore or outright defend violent intolerance when it’s espoused under the banner of Islam?
Liberals assert that mutliculturalism is a form of tolerance.
Tolerance of what? Segregation, honor killings, female genital mutilation, homophobia and Sharia law?
That isn’t a misinterpretation of Islam, it’s a directive taken straight from the Koran.
“The penalty for those who strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is that they be killed or crucified.” That’s straight of the Koran.
That motive isn’t derived from radical Islam, or a misinterpretation of the Koran, it’s derived from Islam itself, directly from the same book read, preached and practiced by 1.5 billion Muslims.
Until we acknowledge that Islam is a retrograde 7th century religion that – like Christianity in the 1500’s – needs a massive reformation if it is to be compatible with western liberal democracies, the toxic ideology that drives ISIS will never be defeated.
No matter how many boots on the ground in Syria, no matter how many cruise missiles you launch, the underlying doctrine of violent, intolerant hatred will remain unmoved.
And until leftists and so-called progressives grow a spine and stop making apologies for the most fanatical and regressive belief system on the planet, the cycle of violence will never be checked.
The problem is not radical Islam. The problem is just Islam.
