The horror. Unimaginable.
“Our values are at stake,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Wednesday after hearing about the video.But where are our values when those who oppose the ideology that inspires and commands such barbarity are vilified and condemned, while the ideology itself is never questioned?
And where is the collective outrage? Directed at our ads of truth, of course. The reporting on this monstrosity is very matter-of-fact. And yet when the media reports on our ads opposing jihad, is such objectivity employed? Never. We are “haters” for opposing jihad and its accompanying mass beheadings.
We are surely in the age of the savage.
