Manchester arena attack confirms need to confront radical Islam — everywhere

By Printus LeBlanc

The current pattern cannot continue. Terror attack, cry, post flag filter on Facebook, forget, and repeat. How to attack the current threat, while maintaining the rights guaranteed in the Constitution?

On May 22 in Manchester, England, radical Islamic terrorism struck Europe once again. At the end of an Ariana Grande concert, 22-year-old Salman Abedi detonated an explosive device that sent metal shards tearing into the people around him. The attack killed 22 people and injured at least 59.

Ariana Grande has a very specific fan base. The young performer attracts other young girls. The parking lots and concession stands are often used as waiting areas by parents. This means the bomber intentionally targeted a venue with young children, specifically girls. The youngest victim identified so far is an 8-year-old girl, Saffie-Rose Roussos.

At this time, it is believed Abedi is a British born citizen of immigrant parents. This presents another disturbing trend, radicalization of the second generation. Omar Mateen (Orlando), Syed Rizwan Farook (San Bernardino) and Maj. Nidal Hassan (Ft. Hood) are all Islamic terrorists and second-generation Americans. Why are the children of immigrants becoming terrorists? If they are not picking it up from their parents, where are they picking it up from?

The 2007 New York Police Department report “Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat” states “Critically important to the process of radicalization are the different venues that provide the extremist fodder or fuel for radicalizing — venues, to which we refer to as ‘radicalization incubators.’ These incubators serve as radicalizing agents for those who have chosen to pursue radicalization. They become their pit stops, ‘hangouts,’ and meeting places. Generally these locations, which together comprise the radical subculture of a community, are rife with extremist rhetoric. Though the locations can be mosques, more likely incubators include cafes, cab driver hangouts, flophouses, prisons, student associations, nongovernmental organizations, hookah (water pipe) bars, butcher shops and book stores. While it is difficult to predict who will radicalize, these nodes are likely places where likeminded individuals will congregate as they move through the radicalization process.”

This past Sunday, President Trump delivered a powerful message to the Ummah — Arabic for the Islamic community — during a speech in Saudi Arabia. President Trump called for the Islamic nations of the world to confront Islamist extremism and Islamist terror groups. He stated “Religious leaders must make this absolutely clear: Barbarism will deliver you no glory — piety to evil will bring you no dignity. If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.”

In short, President Trump is calling for the Islamic world to confront these radicalization incubators.

Charity organizations must know where their money is going. No more money for a mosque if it hosts an imam preaching the killing of someone that is gay. Saudi Arabia must stop supporting Islamic schools that give out textbooks that promote hatred of other religions. Imams must recognize when members of their mosque might become violent. Parents must monitor their children and pay attention to the websites they are visiting.

The attack also confirms the need in part for the travel ban issued by President Trump. The ban has been widely accused of being racist and anti-Islamic, despite Islam being a religion not a race, and the ban not covering the five most populous Islamic nations.

Yet six of the seven nations on the travel ban do have one thing in common. They have little to no government control of their nation. If there is no way to verify the identity of who is on the passport, why would you let them in? The federal government must have the ability to verify the identity of those entering the United States. The seventh nation is Iran. No explanation is needed as to why Tehran is on the list, but for the uninitiated, Iran are still listed by the State Department as a state sponsor of terrorism.

Yes, bombing and waging war on Islamic State and al Qaeda should continue, but President Trump is right, war waged by the U.S. alone will not solve the threat posed by radical Islam. Ultimately, the real solution can only come from within the Ummah, the Islamic community. Majority Muslim nations must take the lead in combating radical Islamic terrorism.Similarly, in the U.S. and UK, community-based approaches inside the Islamic community, cooperating with local and federal law enforcement, are a must in cracking down on homegrown terrorism. Any group of people or ideology risks becoming stronger when attacked from the outside. This is an instance where change must come from within.

    Whether the parents admit it or not the majority were raised to be potential terrorist. The parents may not realize they instilled the hate in the child as he or she listened to them talk about their home country and current events, but they did. The child grows up and takes it to a higher level. Some always reminding the child of what once was. The caliphate which ceased to exist in 1924. Their religions embedded call for violence and the control of land and the law of shiria. Islam ans shiria are inseparable. Islam is the enemy and the koran is their guide. Even Trump now forced by his own people to deny that islam is the enemy. Until we admit what Thomas Jefferson already proved that islam must be banned we will never win. Today on the 5 they had a male who was once a terrorist and now claims to be a good democrat, I guess he is. But in reality he is a jihadist who has changed his tactics from violent to peaceful known as ” civilization jihad “. He got to old to fight the violent and finds comfort as a agent for the muslim brotherhood. Violent or peaceful jihad the goal is the same. Caliphate and control of the world with shiria law.

  • Chris Robinette

    Islam is not a religion to begin with, and there fore not protected by the Bill of Rights nor the Constitution of the US.

  • will

    Tell that to the 4th and 9th district judges that just upheld the block on trumps travel ban. The judicial system is completely corrupt. They should all be removed by whatever means necessary.

    Frankly I am ok with it because I believe that only constant and vicious attacks will save us. When these judges lose some children and grand children to jihad by the peace loving islamist. Only when it hits home will people care. If we had weekly attacks like israel stabbings, bombings, shootings constantly in our face then saying ISLAMIC terrorist will become normal as well it should. Then people will rise up load their AR15 and pick out a mosque or CAIR or one of its 26 sub organizations and attack. When the police get in the way they become enemy of the people.

    At the point the GOVT realizes that it must choose sides. The American people, or islam are their choices. The dems, which is a mixture of, fascist, marxist, communist, islamofascist of course will fight for awhile. The civil war or unrest could be short. But the attacks most be vicious and frequent or Americans will sleep through it till it is holding a knife to their collective throats

  • Chris Robinette

    I agree that the bleeding heart liberal democrats are destroying this country and think that they will be immune to the horrors when confronted with their 3 choices of 1. convert, 2 pay a tax and live as a slave or 3. DIE!. I myself prefer the 4th option, Kill first, live longer.

  • John Richmond

    Yep – The Handmaid’s Tale.

    And yes, Islam is a religion and therefore protected under all clauses dealing with religion.

    And if anyone here thinks Christians, for example, are incapable of terror is against innocents, I will submit the IRA and their Protestant counterparts in Northern Ireland as counterexamples.

    The point is that people need to learn to not kill indiscriminately or at all.

    I hope I’m not making this site look too good by being a voice of reason….

  • Mikial

    Europe surrendered a long time ago, and betrayed its citizens by disarming them and then flooding their country with Muslims from every corner of the world who are allowed to live in Sharia Law enclaves in the cities. They persist in open borders and unarmed police who can do nothing to stop an attack. I have worked widely in the Muslim world and in Europe, and my wife grew up in Europe where her family still lives, an trust me it is far worse than even articles like this are able to portray. I was in Cairo during the overthrow of Mubarak in 2011, and have spent years working in the West Bank, Beirut, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and all over Europe, and Islam and the word ‘moderate’ should never be used in the same sentence.

  • Mikial

    John, I get very tired of all these references to things Christians did centuries or even decades ago. Islamic terrorism is happening now and it is happening all over the world. The IRA was a limited movement with a beef with the British government. No other organization or movement has promoted and carried out mass slaughter like this in the 21st Century. You do not see Christians, Jews or Hindus walking into concerts filled with children and blowing themselves up in order to murder their way into Heaven. Your voice of reason is exactly the same argument that has resulted in the mass murders of innocent people in Paris, Orlando, London, San Bernardino, Baghdad, Cairo and a hundred other cities where fanatics driven by a religion based on violence slaughter indiscriminately in the name of their god. That is a very different thing from what the IRA did decades ago and on a much larger scale. Your “counterexamples” fall woefully short of demonstrating some sort of Christian terror movement to promote a religion that preaches its adherents should kill all non-believers. As for making “his site look too good by being a voice of reason . . “, save your arrogant, Liberal drivel for Tumblr, I’m sure you’re well known and revered there.

  • Frederick Douglass

    Just another case of islam in action.

  • John Richmond

    And Mikial I’m tired of seeing references tarring my Muslim friends with the same brush as nihilistic killers such as the Manchester bomber, the ones that blow up a market or a Sufi gathering or something else almost daily somewhere between the Maghreb and Pakistan, and, yes people like Tim McVeigh.

    I’m sorry if I sound arrogant, but I’ve seen nasty comments about people who don’t practice usual American Christianity or culture all over the place here. Someone talked about pouring boiling bacon grease on Muslims in comments on another post. I used to ignore them; the election of our current president changed the state of things and now these asseertions have to be confronted. In any case such statements, and many of the posts that start these conversations, have no place on a site dedicated to self-reliance which sometimes has really useful stuff on it..

    My point is that any religion has adherents that can succumb to mental illness and rigid us vs them thinking – even Buddhists. Even Christians. Let’s talk about self-reliance, and perhaps national security. Let’s stop putting one religion over another.

    I feel less secure and more fearful every time I read comments like I saw earlier in this thread.

  • John Richmond

    Yes, I am an unapologetic “liberal,” though technically the term most closely describes today’s libertarians, and next most closely describes corporate globalists who I oppose, and I think most people here oppose.

    I think there is an affirmative role for government and inclusiveness to make people’s lives better and to foster resilience and self-reliance.

    Mikial, I am tired of people definng my Muslim friends as nihilistic killers. They are not, no more than your Christian friends or Muslim friends are (I assume you have at least one of the latter). I have seen comments in another thread here talking about pouring boiling bacon grease on Muslims. This is specifically designed to inflame passions, not reason, because Muslims don’t eat pork. Would they say similar things about Jews too? And don’t they know that the vast majority of Mexicans are Christians?

    No reasoning that is inclusive promotes suicide bombers. That is brought about by mental illness, authoritarianism, nationalism, the legacy of colonialism, and /or a lack of hope.

    I’m sorry if I sound arrogant. I’ve seen these nasty comments here for a long time. Before the recent unpleasant national election, I ignored them. Since, I’ve determined I need to oppose those sorts of comments, ones that imply that one group is better than another due to straw man ideologies or random variations like skin color and national origins, irrespective of individuals. And yes, I used the straw woman of the Handmaid’s Tale to make that point. And none of it has anything to do with self-reliance. I’m puzzled by the inclusion of such posts on this site even though discussing them interests me.

    The point is that all religions are susceptible to overly rigid adherents doing whatever they think it takes to defend the religion, their way of life, something. Evem Buddhists (see northern Myanmar). Even Christians. If Muslim governments had colonized Christian areas, you can bet that Christian suicide bombers would have arisen. It’s radical religion and violent behavior that needs to be confronted, not just radical Islam

  • John Richmond

    I’m going to Europe this summer, so I guess I’ll see it myself – what sort of work did you do?

  • Moderator

    I include posts like these because we need to understand how and why power does what it does. I am appalled by the spite of some readers but I understand the frustration and anger of many more. We are losing our freedoms through bureaucracy and social pressure to conform on issues many of us feel deeply about. I try and delete the baiting, hateful comments. But the First Amendment does allow us to get down and dirty with words. Self-reliance is a mindset as well as a tricked out home and a pantry fun of longlife food. Of course, not all Muslims are terrorists. Look at the Manchester response from Muslim cab drivers and doctors. They were caring and kind. But by and large, at this point in history, most terrorists are Muslims. We need to be able to look for terrorists – plain and simple. We should not be hung up on ethnicity.

    You raise a good point though. Should I remove all political posts from the site? I have been thinking about it.

  • Chris Robinette

    Islam is not a religion. End of line.

  • Mikial

    I provide security and crisis response support for Westerners trying to do good in the world by building schools, hospitals, airfields, teaching people how to start and run their own businesses, more efficient methods of agriculture, democracy and governance, gender equality, health care, and improvements in education, etc. Outside of Europe, the vast majority of this work was done in Muslim countries that had Muslim governments at the direct expense of American and British taxpayers funding USG and GUK sponsored programs. During the past 13 years I’ve responded to or tried to mitigate the effects of IEDs, suicide bombers, rocket attacks, VBIEDs (car bombs), intimidation and night letters, abductions, riots, harassment by corrupt government officials, and a host of other incidents. These acts were perpetrated by Muslims against both their fellow Muslims and the Westerners who were there trying to better their lives. I’ve had Local National Muslim, American, British, South African and Nepalese friends killed and critically injured in terrorist attacks. I have worked directly with Iraqis, Kurds, Yemenis, Afghans, Palestinians, Pakistanis, Egyptians, Israelis, Nepalese, Lebanese, Somalis and many other nationalities. I’ve trusted my life to many of them, and I’ve had to break the news to Muslim family members that their loved one was murdered in a terrorist attack while working for the organizations I supported. In response to your other comment responding to me; yes, I have more than one Muslim friend in more than one country including the USA and nowhere in anything I said did you see any reference to killing all Muslims, but I stand by my earlier comment that the governments of the West are not doing enough to protect their citizens and counter what is an unqualified epidemic of violence and murder being perpetrated almost exclusively by radical Islam around the world. It is a religion of intolerance and ignorance when it comes to accepting other faiths or even subgroups within Islam, and I have had several Palestinian, Iraqi and Lebanese Christians who were threatened and harassed and attacked by the Muslims in their countries simply because they were not Muslims.

    My apology for the long answer, but you have been open and forthcoming with your thoughts, so I felt you deserved an explanation of what has shaped my own thoughts. Please feel free to respond if you like, but I have said my piece and really have nothing else new to say on the topic.

  • Mikial

    I would agree with you that political posts really don’t add to the column, and would still read it daily if there were none.

  • Mikial

    And John, I realized I should have said this in my response, but I will read your comment. I just see nothing further to be gained for either of us in any more back and forth.

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and be sure to thank a Vet for the freedoms you enjoy.

  • John Richmond

    And a great Veterans Day weekend to you too Mikial – our neighbor who we thanked told us to tell other veterans something like “Have a Mindful Memorial Day” because it’s not supposed to be about the ones that made it through but abut the ones who didn’t.

    BTW I’m a math teacher; I have no prior military experience because I had a couple of experiences in high school that gave a poor taste of what military service would be like. I do like the idea of required service of some kind; it’s not like we don’t have enough problems to fix and improvements to make. An Eagle Scout-type project requirement for graduating high school, or even middle school, would pay dividends too.

    I have a friend who did logistics work with the Army Reserve in Iraq – one day he was a block away from a car bomb that killed 27 people. He is generally a happy, upbeat person; he rarely talks about anything that went on there other than the occasional story of driving the general to the airport at 100 mph or something like that.

  • John Richmond

    Chris, it is religion, though in fairness to you we would have to have a mutually agreed upon definition of what a religion is in order to settle the question for sure. Every scholar who studies human groupings agrees that Islam is a religion, along with Christianity (even Christian Identity?, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shintoism, etc)

  • Chris Robinette

    And Islam does not fit into any of them. AND there are many religious scholars who do NOT agree that islam is a religion. So your argument is again false.

    Five Reasons Why Islam is a Cult

    Five Reasons Why Islam is a Cult

    Unpleasant fact — worldwide consequences

    by Bob Smith

    1. A Muslim who quits Islam has to worry about being killed by another Muslim.

    This is the first rule of Islam. This is why so few Muslims quit the faith. This simple fact — alone — makes Islam a cult. It is hard to understate the significance of this cold hard fact about Islam.

    This practice is widely followed today throughout the Islamic world. The most frequently quoted Islamic theological source is Sahih Al-Bukhari Number 6922:

    Allah’s apostle said, “if anyone changes his (Islamic) religion, then kill him.”

    WikiIslam.net says the following: “the rejection of faith, is a serious offense in Islam. The punishment for apostasy as prescribed by Prophet Muhammad is death”.

    Don’t let any Muslim try to deny this fact by quoting the Islamic phrase “there is no compulsion in religion”. All Muslims know the Islamic doctrine of “abrogation” negates this phrase. And Muslims only use this phrase when they are trying to deceive non-Muslims

    In Afghanistan, NATO had to use a promise of asylum in Europe to get Said Musa out of prison for the crime of converting to Christianity.

    The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI.org), in clip #3926, translated a broadcast from Al-Arabiya TV on June 14, 2013, which quotes Egyptian Islamist Abu Al-’Ela Abd Rabbo, one of the assassins of secularist Farag Foda in 1992:

    Interviewer: What was the religious justification for the assassination of Farag Foda?

    Abu Al-’Ela Abd Rabbo: The punishment for an apostate is death, even if he repents.

    Need more proof? Simply Google “quit Islam” or, click the this link for an insightful discussion on the issue.

    2. Muslims are encouraged to commit violence in the name of Islam.

    Muslim theological documents — the Koran, Hadith, and Sunna — are filled with statements which encourage devout Muslims to commit violence in the name of Islam.

    Here are just a few:

    Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
    Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood (9:123)
    When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
    Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
    Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
    The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
    Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam (5:33)
    The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
    Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)
    Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
    The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
    Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
    Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
    Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels
    In addition to the Muslim theological documents mentioned above, Islamic social norms encourage violence. It is widely noted that Friday is the most likely day when jihad attacks will occur within Muslim society. This is because the mullahs use their Friday pulpits to encourage their flock to commit violence in the name of Islam.

    In Muslim societies, even the media become involved in the incitement to violence. MEMRI.org has translated thousands of articles from print and electronic media. These translated articles are filled with direct incitement to commit violence in the name of Islam.

    Remarkably, some of the most glaring examples of incitement to violence come from new “converts” to Islam. Why would a new convert to Islam commit violence? The obvious answer is the “theological” incitement from their new religion — Islam’s core texts.

    There is an unfortunate PC effort to deny, ignore and whitewash this Islam inspired violence. The amount of violence committed worldwide since 9/11 is simply too high to overlook.

    The web site The Religion of Peace has been collecting, counting, and publishing a list of deadly Islamic terror attacks worldwide since 9/11/2001. As of January 1, 2014 the number was 22,178. Don’t let the PC crowd tell you it is just the same as the Christians, Buddhists, Hindus or the Jews — make them prove it. Only an intellectual buffoon would try to deny the relationship between Islam and violence.

    3. Islam does not allow criticism or change.

    Islam considers anyone who criticizes or tries to change Islam guilty of blasphemy. And blasphemy is an capital crime under Sharia law. As a result any Muslim who even critiques or attempts to change Islam has to worry about being murdered by some devout Muslim.

    In Denmark in late 2013, an 18-year-old Muslim named Yahya Hassan received numerous death threats after reading one of his Islam-critical poems on TV.

    It is bad enough that Muslims can’t criticize Islam, but this rule even applies to non-Muslims in non-Muslim societies. Just look at what happened to Theo Van Gogh in Amsterdam. He made a short movie about women in Islam. As Van Gogh walked to work one morning, he was murdered by a devout Muslim named Mohammed Bouyeri. At his trial the murderer told the court Van Gogh had insulted Islam. “What moved me to do what I did was purely my faith,” Bouyeri went on. “I was motivated by the law that commands me to cut off the head of anyone who insults Allah and his prophet.”

    The Comedy Central series “South Park” parodied Islam in a couple of 2010 episodes. What happened? According to the New York Times:

    Mat Stone and Trey Parker the creators of South Park were threatened by the Islamic web site RevolutionMuslim.com. It warned Mat and Trey “what they are doing is stupid, and they will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”

    In Seattle, the cartoonist Molly Norris thought she could counter Islamic reality. She declared May 20, 2010 “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”. She published a cartoon with a number of household items (a spool of thread, a cup and saucer, a domino…) all claiming to be Mohammed. Within a week Norris had received numerous death threats. Eventually the Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki put a fatwa on Norris’ head. After talks with the FBI she ultimately had to implement her own “cartoonist protection program”. She has reportedly changed her name, left Seattle, and gone underground.

    To make matters worse, Islam encourages devout believers to be “self-initiating” in the enforcement of Sharia law. This means any devout Muslim believer anywhere might commit violence in the blink of an eye, if he finds you doing something he considers offensive to Islam.

    4. Muslim theology teaches hatred of non-Muslims.

    This practice is widespread within Islamic society. It has been documented by numerous authors literally thousands of time. (See a long list of articles below.)

    The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI.org) has recorded and translated hundreds of television broadcasts in which Muslim religious leaders encourage hatred and violence against non-Muslims, and especially the Jews.

    Here is a screen shot from one:

    MEMRI screen cap

    To make matters worse, this Islamic hate-theology is being taught right here in Western society right under the noses of politically correct governments.

    In the United States, the Freedom House Center for Religious Freedom published in 2005 an investigative report titled “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Invade American Mosques”. This extensive analysis states: “The Saudi Arabian publications in this study, which espouse an ideology of hate and purport to be the authoritative interpretation of Islam, continue to be in plentiful supply at some of our nation’s main mosques and continue to be used as a principal educational resource on Islam for Muslims in America”. (Is there any wonder how the Boston Marathon bombers got their ideas?)

    In the UK a Dispatches Magazine Channel 4 news undercover reporter joined mosque “worshippers to find a message of religious bigotry and extremism being preached. He captures chilling sermons in which Saudi-trained preachers proclaim the supremacy of Islam, preach hatred for non-Muslims.”

    After this Dispatches report aired, there was a public outcry. Muslim spokespersons said this was an aberration and that the problem had been cured. Months later Dispatches returned, and found a continuation of hate teaching in the mosques.

    5. Islam matches the “Characteristics Associated with Cultic Groups” according to the International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA).

    Here are some of these characteristics, according to the ICSA:

    The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.
    Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.
    Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).
    The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry — or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).
    The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar — or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).
    The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.
    The leader is not accountable to any authorities.
    The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members’ participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).
    The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.
    Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.
    The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.
    Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.
    Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.
    The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.
    I know it is hard to imagine — 20% of humanity is tied up in a deceptive murderous cult — but that’s exactly what the situation is. Islam is a contagious cult that incites its followers to commit violence. Either the non-Muslim world unites and deals with this intellectual Islamic scourge, or Islam will continue its expansion.

    Chris, excellent response. And in case anyone questions it on the basis of it being a scholarly thesis, I can provide anecdotal support based on personal experience. I have personally known and been friends with an Iraqi, a Palestinian, and an Afghan who have converted to Christianity and had to be in fear of their lives. Two, (the Iraqi and the Afghan) eventually were able to immigrate to the US where they can live in peace, while the Palestinian (Fadi) lives in East Jerusalem where the Israelis are very tolerant and welcome non-Jews. I have spent time with each of them in their home country, and they are all three wonderful people who go out of their way to help others whenever they can, but had to live in fear that they and their families would be murdered because they were not Muslims. It’s a sad thing, but a reality of the world.

    Thank you for your support and sharing your experiences with me and hopefully with Mr. John Richard as well, whom seems that he supports the islam lies.

    And just to show that I too can uncritically paste something into a comment section, here’s something: http://www.christianityisacult.com
    I include just the link out of respect for bandwidth in the comments section.

    And there’s also this, which contends the opposite: http://www.rationalchristianity.net/xian_cult.html

    I’ve been in both cult like and non cult like Christian environments in my life. I’ve had my fill of both.

    I think this discussion is over for me Chris, because hours upon hours of research won’t change anyone’s mind. And I’m no closer to being self-reliant or resilient in community.

    So take care of yourself – good health to you.

    You really must love ISIS don’t you? One day they will give you the choice to convert, pay a tax, or die. I know which one you will choose.

    I (unfortunately) have to spend a lot of time in the DC area working with organizations filled with Liberals, and they all seem to love Islam, IS and AQ. They consistently excuse their penchant for mass murder, rape, subjugation, the slaughter of gays, female circumcision, child slavery and a host of other crimes against humanity while pushing their own agenda’s of Western style feminism, anti-2A, and belittling patriotism. It’s as if they somehow just don’t understand its evils or choose to ignore them because they hate America more than terrorism. Frankly, I just cannot understand their mindset. How can they see the photos of the blood trails and dead kids from the Paris and Manchester massacres and not see the evil in it?

  • Chris Robinette

    The question is what can we do about it?

  • John Richmond

    How do they excuse this? None of this is self-evident to me, so I guess I’ll need it explained. I’m not a fan of ISIS, or Islam, or any religion for that matter. ISIS is not Islam. How is any of this anything other than a disagreement on how to accomplish common goals? My friends were right about the Breitbart-Bannon crowd, I guess….

    You’re nuts ! Criminals who happen to be Jewish or Christians who commit crimes are not supported by Christians or Jews , they can’t claim the support of a religion or “holy” book that says do evil ! Jews and Christians condem these criminals as evildoers not mayrters or sahids who are granted instant admission to paradise like Islam teaches !
    Islam is unique in currently advocating death to unbelievers ,it’s Koran is constantly telling believers to slay and be slain as a key to paradise !
    Sorry but Christianity is much more peaceful than Islam ,as is j
    Juidisium as practiced in Modern times !
    Some “religions ” are better than others , some (Islam) are barbaric in their current teachings and practices ! Islam is not the religion of Peace ,far from it !

  • Chris

    Not a race either And of course , not all Muslims are terrorists ,but we shouldn’t have to complement them for that ! But the vast majority of all terrorists acts in the last 20 + years have been committed by Islamists !
    Muslims acting for “the cause of Allah ” and for some reason it seems that the more “devote”their beliefs… the more likely an attack on the unbeliever becomes ! It does have something to do with Islam ! We need to find out why this happens to be prepared !

  • Chris

    Learn as much about Islam as possible ,so you can truly Be self-reliant and prepared !

  • Chris

    Your friends are uninformed ! Islamic State is practicing Islam straight out of the Koran 7th century style ! (Hint : read the name ,ISLAMIC State ) See I’ve already been more useful than all your useless snowflake friends ( who will not be prepared for anything we may face !) You need new , more intelligent friends

    I have and know all about the 109 “kill infidel” verses in the Qur’an. I’m locked and loaded.
