In the early hours of Sunday June 12th 2016, the city of Orlando, Florida became the latest city to be hit by murderous Islamic jihad. In the worst mass shooting in United States history, a lone jihadist wielding an assault rifle and a pistol slaughtered 50 people and injured 53 others.
The jihadist was identified as Omar Mateen, a 29 year old son of Afghan immigrants. And with this revelation began the usual tried-and-tested song and dance routine of the political elites and the mainstream media to go to increasingly desperate lengths to deny the reason for the atrocity.
Let’s establish what are for the authorities, damning and inconvenient facts. Mateen made a call to police before the shooting, declaring himself a Muslim and swore allegiance to Islamic State. That’s the same “so-called” Islamic State whose devout mujahideen wage jihad in the path of Allah, implementing sharia law wherever they go. And as homosexuality is a sin punishable by death under sharia, these holy warriors who fight and die for Islam have no qualms about executing gays. In fact, they execute them regularly.
Just before the holy Islamic month of Ramadan began on Sunday 5th June 2016, Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani issued a rallying call to Muslims telling them to “be prepared, be ready to make it a month of calamity for the unbelievers everywhere. Especially the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America.”
Furthermore, Mateen mentioned the Boston marathon jihad attack committed by the Tsarnaev brothers in 2013. Clearly, he believed that murdering American infidels for Allah’s cause is right and just.
Do you see how significant that small detail of the call is? Let me leave it simmering with you for a minute, and bear it in mind as you continue reading.
Despite these facts about Mateen, as predictable as rain during an English summer the political elites and the mainstream media went into full-on Pravda mode to ensure Islam would not be blamed.
First up came Mateen’s father who stretched credulity to breaking point by saying with a serious face: “I don’t know what caused him to do it.” He did say Mateen had been outraged by two gays kissing in the street but that his son wasn’t particularly religious. Even though his son made two religious pilgrimages to Saudi Arabia.
As if a father who raised his son as Muslim doesn’t know what Islam says about homosexuals. I wonder if he knows lying to infidels is permissible in Islam?
The Mayor of Orlando Buddy Dyer stated that the atrocity was the worst day in the city’s history, calling the nightclub slaughter “unimaginable”. Seems he isn’t aware of the torching of a gay nightclub in Seattle by a devout Muslim nor of the slaying of two gay men in Seattle, again by a Muslim.
Muddying the waters by obfuscating the true identity of the jihadist is another favourite tactic of the media. Terms such as “American born man”, “gunman”, “shooter”, “American citizen” and “mentally ill” are deployed all to avoid calling him what he actually was: A Muslim jihadist.
President Obama addressed his nation and stated: “It was an act of terror and an act of hate.” Again, an outright denial of what it actually is: Another murderous act of Islamic jihad. He compounded the denial even further by saying it was too early in the investigation to identify the motive.
This denial was backed up by Democrat Senator Adam Schiff who described the atrocity as an “ISIS inspired act of terrorism”. He didn’t mention what inspires Islamic State to murder gays and infidels, because hey, everyone knows ISIS is “nothing to do with Islam”. In fact ISIS is everything to do with Islam, they obey and implement the commands of the Quran and ahadith. More importantly, they emulate the “perfect example” of the prophet of Islam, Muhammad. If ISIS are unIslamic, then so is Muhammad. One wonders how Muslims can be moderate when they revere a prophet who was so violent.
However, instead of focusing on the example of Muhammad and sacred texts of Islam that motivate and inspire Muslims to wage jihad against infidels, politicians and the media placed the focus on guns. You see, it’s not people motivated by an ideology that commands killing unbelievers and homosexuals that kill, oh no. Guns do. Understandably, the distraught mother of one of the victims called for her government to ban assault rifles. It seems the obvious solution doesn’t it? Ban the guns and hey presto! No more mass shootings.
Except it won’t work. Banning assault rifles won’t deter fanatics driven by an ideology that commands killing from obtaining them. All they’ll do is go to the black market. I know it’s hard to believe but criminals have this curious habit of disregarding the law. France has strict gun control laws yet devout mujahideen were able to conduct three mass shootings in Paris during 2015: The Charlie Hebdo massacre, the Hypercacher kosher store shootings and the multiple jihad attacks on November 13th which killed 130 people.
By focusing on gun control, President Obama and the liberal left are exploiting the atrocity to pursue their aim of abolishing the right for Americans to bear arms enshrined in The Second Amendment of the US Constitution. The Second Amendment is a cherished right for Americans as it enables an armed citizenry to resist government tyranny. So rather than address what motivates jihadists to slaughter innocent people, the left chooses to pursue its own political aims instead. In doing so, all it achieves is to ensure further jihad attacks will occur.
Notice too how Mateen doesn’t represent Islam but he does represent gun owners, the vast majority of whom are law abiding citizens.
Whenever patriots such as myself have the temerity to link these diabolical slaughters committed by Muslims with Islam, it will be met with asinine relativism to deny what Islam actually is. For example, Sally Kohn, political commentator for CNN tweeted:
Even though there are no Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs or Buddhist extremist groups slaughtering women, gays and unbelievers, you can’t tell Sally Kohn the problem is religion. By which she means “Islam”, even though 10 Islamic countries impose the death penalty for homosexuality. Note the list includes Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shia Iran. But Sally Kohn and leftists and liberals like her know more about Islam than the Muslim leaders of those Islamic states do.
Yes it’s true to say other religions regard homosexuality as a sin against God, indeed it’s forbidden in Christianity. But you don’t have devout Catholics or Protestants slaughtering homosexuals nor do any Christian countries impose the death penalty for it. Equating Islam with other religions isn’t just unfair it’s fundamentally dishonest.
Remember the phone call I left simmering with you earlier? Mateen cited the Boston marathon bombings. In doing so, he showed he has no problem with Muslims slaughtering infidels regardless of their sexuality. Devout Muslims who copy Muhammad’s example and wage jihad on unbelievers will always find a reason to justify it. This does not happen with any other religion.
So why do leftists and liberals make such false comparisons?
Politicians and the left-sympathizing mainstream media are responsible for importing Islam into the West. They asserted that all religions are the same and that all people and cultures are equal. As they forcibly imposed multiculturalism on the West, they smeared anyone who dared to warn of the dangers of Islam as intolerant, hate-filled Islamophobes. As the presence of Islam in the West grew stronger, and with it came murderous acts of jihad, the people were told such acts had nothing to do with Islam and were committed by misunderstanders who pervert and distort the true meaning of the faith.
From the heinous act of jihad that slaughtered 3000 people on 11th September 2001 right through to the latest appalling massacre of 50 people in Orlando, politicians and the media continue to place their ideology over the security and safety of the people by refusing to make any links with Islam. Therefore the people of the West are living in perverted societies where naive, fantasy-driven adults are so welded to their childish dream of a rainbow utopia, they deliberately place it over reality. In doing so they’re placing their own people in grave danger.
Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Devout Muslims waging jihad fisabilillah have slaughtered infidels in New York, Madrid, London, Paris, Brussels, Boston Copenhagen, Tel Aviv, Sydney, New Delhi, Tunisia, San Bernadino and now Orlando. Hamas and Hezbollah continue to wage jihad against Israel. Islamic state is persecuting and slaughtering unbelievers, women and homosexuals in Iraq, Libya and Syria. Boko Haram is enslaving women and slaughtering Christians in Nigeria. Christians are persecuted throughout the Islamic world. Women and non-Muslims have next to no rights in all Islamic states.
It’s so obvious even a blind man could see it: Wherever Islam goes, violence, intolerance, hatred and persecution go with it. And unless the West – especially the left and its liberal lickspittle lackeys – have the courage to admit Islam has a serious problem with violence, more appalling acts of jihad will hit the West.
And right on cue, just two days after the horror of Orlando, a devout Muslim claiming allegiance to Islamic State murdered a French policeman and his wife whilst shouting “Allahu Akbar!”.
The entire West needs to wake up and smell the obnoxious reality of jihad and accept that while Islam exists, it’s in a permanent state of war with all unbelievers. Those fools who continue to deny this fact insult the victims of Orlando and merely ensure more innocents will be slaughtered for the blood-thirsty deity of Islam, Allah.
