Aren’t you getting sick of the weak clichés describing terrorism? Again today after the terrorist murder in Canada’s capital city, the vapid news commentator condemned the “senseless violence” of the Muslim terrorist murderer. I don’t object to the phrase simply because it is a cliché, but because it is WRONG!
It makes perfect sense in the mind of a Muslim literalist. It is what Mohammed did. It is what the Koran, Sunnah and Hadith teach. And it also happens to be the most sensational form of Islam today. It’s “what’s happening” if you want to prove your Muslim masculinity and supremacism. It you happen to hate women, this is the cause for you.
I don’t need to hear about moderate Muslims. First, we don’t hear from them much. Second, they are not the Muslims driving the bus. The percentage distribution is irrelevant. A call has gone out around the earth: “The Caliphate is rising! Come join the Caliphate!” However premature it may be, this call has drawn radical Islamists from 80 countries to join Isis in Syria. (I believe this is premature because the real Caliphate will actually look good and peaceful, at first, to most folks, yet with the same foundational intent to conquer the world for Islam and establish Sharia everywhere.)
Senseless is not the right word. It empties the heinous act of intent.
These people have not lost their minds. They know exactly what and why and who they murder. It creates terror. It advances Islam. They are honored as holy warrior martyrs. And, by the way, they get to go to heaven, claim 70 virgins and guarantee the salvation of 70 family members. To them it’s a no-brainer. I mean it is completely logical to them.
So let’s stop minimizing terror. It is evil. It is horrible. And it is institutionalized. It is a political/religious system of supremacism. These “lone wolf” actors are NOT “becoming radicalized,” they are becoming converted. They have adopted a complete belief system and follow it as their deadly sincere faith! It is a death cult, and the diametric opposite of Jesus and the Biblical God of love and life, Yehovah.
Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:7-10
