Nothing To Do With Islam, Just Like It Always Isn’t

Amongst the daily news feed, of yet another killing or mass killing in the name of Islam somewhere in the world was this lovely item this morning.

Fighters from a US-backed Syrian militant group have been filmed brutally beheading a child as young as 11.

The video captures Nour al-Din al-Zenki fighters in the back of a truck with a child they claim is an al-Quds soldier supporting Assad’s Syrian forces.

One of the fighters shouts ‘Allahu Akbar’ meaning ‘God is great’ after taking a small knife to the boy’s throat and cutting off his head in the Palestinian refugee Handarat Camp in Northern Aleppo.

After sharing it on Facebook, I get this, from someone reasonably well known in the LC / Fitness realm.

It isn’t ALL Muslims who would do this – it is the LEAST of them. So you can choose to pretend that ALL Muslims would do this to this child – or even support it. Or, you can take your head out of your ass and realize that the VAST majority of Muslims would condemn this action.



You can see all the data, most of it gathered by Pew Research in 2013, right here. The Pew report is here.

Now, here’s something really spectacular. Truly, and it’s not only in the joy of watching Sam Harris school the ignorant, hubristic Ben Affleck.

Raheel Raza, a Pakistani Muslim anti-extremism activist, argues against those naive westerners (like Barack Obama and Ben Affleck) who think only 1% of Muslims support extremism and terror. She says (as I do) that there is no hope of progress unless we confront the actual facts.

Her analysis of the opinion polls is near the end of the video. She shows that, depending on definition, hundreds of millions of Muslims in the world are extremists. Not all of them. Not 1.5 billion. But not a tiny minority either.

Wake up and wise up. Gotta be smart, not foolish.

    The more obvious is the obvious, the more the pushback from the useful idiots, and the exposure of their hypocrisy and outright lies.

    the plain truth is that the international Left has made common cause with Islamist world against it’s mortal enemy….The Great Satan US of A.

    The following is not my idea. A woman said it but I cannot remember her name.

    She compared Islam to the Nazis. The vast majority of Germans were not true Nazis, even if they were party members. But because of their inaction or tacit approval or fear of reprisal or whatever, the true Nazis, a small portion of the German people, caused great harm to the world. I don’t care if a “tiny” portion of Muslims are the perpetrators of the horrors we see, through the inactions, tacit approval, etc., of the “moderate” Muslims we are witnessing another viral disease spreading through the world.

    In the movie The Great Escape, a British officer claimed all Germans–Gestapo, Wermacht, etc.–were the same; they were all the enemy. In the same vein I trust no Muslim. Period. Until The Religion of Peace is reduced to a mere curiosity in a small museum somewhere, all practitioners of that murderous cult are suspect.

      You are thinking of Brigitte Gabriel. I think Richard posted it before.

      It doesn’t matter if you are the one perpetrating horrors on people if you are in support of those horrors. The vast majority of the muslim world agrees with Sharia Law, agrees that gays should die, etc…

      The radicals are the ones following and expressing what is in the “holy” text of the islamic religion.

    What’s with NBC’s RNC coverage? As Newt Girgrich began speaking on this very issue, citing the extreme problem of the radical few (the 9% that support ISIS, which he calculated to be 16 million in Pakistan alone), his speech was interrupted so that we could stare at a smirking Lester Holt with the “breaking” news of Ted Cruz’s non endorsement of Trump as the biggest news of the night, the bigest news of the campaign, a total disaster for Trump, etc etc etc. Never mind that NBC competely missed covering Cruz’ speech live and was reporting well afterwards. Never mind that Newt said that he was in complete agreement with Trump on radical Islam and knew that the media would twist what he said.

    Do Al Franken and Jon Stewart script these mocks? Holt only seems bright enough to read the teleprompter.

      I just wrote about this on Facebook, in response to Huckabee’s honorable spanking of Cruz.

      I like a good mock. Stewart and his little friend Colbert were calling Trump an angry groundhog yesterday. His squinty eyes and chubby face invite pie throwing. Too bad they ignore the obvious features of the Arkansas werewolf. The pinched face, the huffy manner and the barely concealed claws and fangs are ripe for mockery. Trump can call it a crooked thing but he can’t go ad hominem (ad animalis?) the way the jokesters do..

      These funny guys are blinded to Hillary’s core mock-ability. They think she’s boring, that it would all be about policy. They have no problem slinging shitballs at Trump. But for Hillary they have to put on their scout uniforms, recite the oath and help the frail old lady across the street. They cannot see her as a Gollum, or as a greedy squirrel.

      The Pythons ate the likes of Hillary for breakfast and mercilessly spit them out in dowdy floral drag and falsetto voices. Infinitely more funny than calling Trump an orange manatee. If they can’t shred Hillary they’re not trying very hard. Their bigotry is worn out on me.

    It looks like Facebook took the oath too.

    Good scouts that they are.

    Saying I’ve seen in comment threads elsewhere:

    A radical Muslim wants to cut your head off.
    A moderate Muslim wants a radical Muslim to cut your head off.

    […] says nothing about the harsh reality that hundreds of millions of Muslims are terrorists or staunch supporters of it internationally, including in […]
