The disproportionate attention given to radicalism feeds into ongoing misrepresentations of Muslims in the west. How about engaging with the Muslim community instead?
“…Can’t we just talk about that…?” (last words of Theo van Gogh, Dutch moviemaker).
The disproportionate attention given to “radicalism” on TV screens and front pages of newspapers feeds into ongoing misrepresentations of Muslims living in western nations. Although the government has assured us the latest measure does “not intend to demonise Muslim Australians”, there is no denying “radicalisation” is treated in the public debate as though it were exclusively bound up with the menace of Islamism. It’s a dangerous game fuelled by the media. The Islamic State plays on this very knowledge as part of its campaign of fear. They have been able to take advantage of the west’s fear of home-grown radicalism and demonisation of Muslims in the media to stoke opposition.
In his speech responding to the horrific murder of journalist James Foley by a British jihadist, President Obama delivered the following rebuke (using an alternate name for ISIS):
ISIL speaks for no religion… and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt…. we will do everything that we can to protect our people and the timeless values that we stand for. May God bless and keep Jim’s memory. And may God bless the United States of America.
In his subsequent remarks outlining a strategy to defeat ISIS, the President declared:
Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim…. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way…. May God bless our troops, and may God bless the United States of America.
As an atheist, I cannot help wondering when this scrim of pretense and delusion will be finally burned away—either by the clear light of reason or by a surfeit of horror meted out to innocents by the parties of God. Which will come first, flying cars and vacations to Mars, or a simple acknowledgment that beliefs guide behavior and that certain religious ideas—jihad, martyrdom, blasphemy, apostasy—reliably lead to oppression and murder? It may be true that no faith teaches people to massacre innocents exactly—but innocence, as the President surely knows, is in the eye of the beholder. Are apostates “innocent”? Blasphemers? Polytheists? Islam has the answer, and the answer is “no.”

Muslims know that this is the pure Islam on display, and while they have ways of dealing with this, they don’t want the Infidels to realize this.
“Kill” means kill: that is no “perversion”, Mr BLiar

They threw rocks at the bus, in order to force the young, female driver to stop and pick them up. They shouted:
Open up, or we’ll kill you.
These illegals, who cannot possibly offer the Italian state anything of value, and who are an enormous expense — beginning with security, but also including expenses to the health system, the education system (should any wish to learn Italian, or have children with them) — keep coming and coming. They are damaging, even destroying, much of Italy. And doing the same in the rest of Europe. The most dangerou are those who are Muslims, but Muslim immigrants are not the only danger. The time of buonismo, angelismo, goody-goodyness, has passed, or should have, all over the besieged Western world.
Here is a long declaration just released by the Islamic State. Every word deserves to be read, and understood. It is addressed both to fellow Muslims around the world, calling on them to kill non-Muslim military and civilians (for there is no distinction to be made) and is a warning to non-Muslims, setting out the Islamic basis for every action of the members of the Islamic State, and predicting that Allah will give ultimate victory, all over the world, to the Muslims who will then rule over the world as they wish.
A statement to be sent to as many people as possible, especially those who in the press attempt to write about Islam and, of course, to the blairs and kerrys (Kerry himself isamusingly described in the English translation of the statement, as an “old geezer”) of this world.
The Shiites, in the view of the Uber-Sunnis of the Islamic State, are Infidels — even, perhaps, the worst of Infidels — and so their property can be treated just like that of other non-Muslims.
But, you may say, shouldn’t they be allowed to keep their property, and to pay the Muslims, through an annual Jizyah only?
No. Consider the example of Muhammad. When he defeated those he attacked — think of the inoffensive Jewish farmers of the Khaybar Oasis — he simply seized all of their property, and their women too, while slaughtering the men. He didn’t say: You can keep your property, but pay us, over time, an annual Jizyah. The Islamic State relies not only on the Qur’an but on the Sunnah — that is, the behavior of the earliest, and therefore most authentic, best Muslims. And Muhammad was the most authentic, best of Muslims; he is the Model of Conduct, he is the Perfect Man.
So don’t worry — the Islamic State is being completely, totally, Islamic, and every true and truthful Muslm knows this. And that’s what’s disturbing them so much: they know that this is the pure Islam on display, and while they have ways of dealing with this, they don’t want the Infidels to realize this.
No virgins if a mujahid gets shot by a woman
Terrified of Losing 72 Heavenly Virgins, Islamic State Fighters Reportedly ‘Run Away’ from Female Soldiers
Female peshmerga fighters are now on the front lines against the Islamic State jihadists.
“I think [the Islamic State] were more afraid of us than of the men,” a female Kurdish fighter named Tekoshin told AFP, the New York Post noted. “They believe they’ll go to hell if they die at a woman’s hands.”
Jihad from behind bars: How Australia’s highest ranking terrorists are calling the shots from notorious maximum security prison

The root-cause of Islamic terrorism is Islam itself
Hizb ut-Tahrir finally destroyed the myth that we’ve just brought the terrorism threat on ourselves by “alienating” Muslims, and if we were just nicer some wouldn’t be forced pick up a gun or a knife. Doureihi’s rant nails it: one of the root causes of this extremism is Islam itself, preaching a hatred of nonbelievers and the legitimacy of killing to defend the faith. (Bolt)
Willie Clitman wouldn’t lie to you:
“Hamas is feeling weak and disempowered, and they fire 3,000 rockets into Israel.”
And the winner is: Tony BLiar!
He says that the free world must combat the ideology of the Islamic State, while retailing the usual soothing fictions about where its ideology comes from. – JIHAD WATCH
Tony Blair, newly trim, just like the post-bypass Bill Clinton, appeared on CNN today. He was interviewed by Candy Crowley, who keeps trying to make people make sense about Islam, but she never goes in for the kill. Several tiimes Blair went out of his way to say that “no religious faith condones the kind of thing ISIS does” (words to that effect), when all it would have taken is a few quotes from the Qur’an, and mention of what Muhammad, the Perfect Man, did at the Battle of the Trench, to leave Blair either speechless or sputtering.

Or the Zionists, of course: “It is obvious to everyone that the Islamic State is a creation of the United States and Israel.” Conspiracy paranoia that is almost believable, but always ‘out of context’….
An alternative history lesson from journalism wacademic Wendy Bacon:
What does the Koran say to Muslims who believe themselves at war?
EVERY day another Labor or Greens MP comes out with another kooky pronouncement downplaying the barbarity of Islamic State and pretending that if we’re all just nice to each other, and stop worshipping God, then terrorism will disappear.— Continue reading ‘The bad guys are here, so stop pretending they’re not’
Thousands of German Muslims protest against terrorism
No such thing. They protested against those who resist Islam and those who oppose the Islamic state.
Muslim organizations in Germany have held rallies in 2,000 mosques nationwide in protest against the ISIL and racist attacks targeting mosques and synagogues.
Germany’s Muslim community staged the rallies on Friday as part of the campaign Muslims Standing Against Hate and Injustice aimed at renouncing all kinds of violence and raise awareness for growing racism.
Our friends from PI called this fraud the moment the dhimmified enemedia reported it.
Translation of the fraudulent Islam speak above:
“Standing against hate” means fighting those who are opposed to Islam, “Injustice” means infidel law, the law of the kafir which must be replaced by the sharia, and “all kinds of violence” means resisting the Islamic expansion project by bombing ISIL. “Growing racism” is of course the icing on the cake; the conflation of the murderous Islamic ideology with race has deprived us of our right to fight back hard. Islam is not a race and it never will be, no matter how Muselmaniacs and their leftist enablers push this idiotic nonsense.
Here, from PI:
Mohammedans in Berlin came out in force to demonstrate “against” mass-murder, rape and enslavement by the Islamic terror gang ‘ISIS’ which currently terrorises large parts of Iraq and Syria and engages in genocide against Christians and Yazidis. The media reported “thousands”, in reality it was no more than 500, at best.
But this Mohammedan “prayer” demo did nothing to condemn the atrocities. On the contrary, what you heard was more BS and blather about “Islamophobia”, ”attacks” on Muslims and arson against the Mevlana mosque, which was burned by… you guessed it: a Jordanian Muslim.

With shouts of “Allah Akbar”, prisoners armed with homemade weapons threatened guards and smashed through an internal fence at the state’s toughest jail, which was in lockdown yesterday.
The riot came as prison authorities cracked down on Muslim prayer meetings in the state’s jails, believed to be a key way Islamic extremists foment their hatred and plot their attacks. Police were called in and investigations are ongoing.
