You can set your watch to it. In the wake of very jihad terror attack, no matter how heinous and horrifying, in come the washerwomen with buckets of dirty water working double time to scrub and censor the motive from the attack. Once the stage is sufficiently washed and prepped, in march the jihadis in the information battle-space, silver-tongued snakes selling Islam-is-peace snake oil to an over-eager media audience braying for more.
CNN stages a fake Muslim protest (watch):
— Katie Hopkins (@KTHopkins) June 4, 2017
CNN had to stage it. Because there are never any Muslim protests against jihad or female genital mutilation or gender apartheid or creed apartheid or Islamic antisemitism. I have yet to see CNN, BBC or any of the enemedia news outlets go to the hospitals and interview the victims or speak to the mutilated, maimed, deformed little girls with holes in their faces who attended the Manchester pop concert.
No matter the monstrosity, nothing changes. If the torn, dismembered bodies of little girls at an Ariana Grande concert were not a game-changer, then nothing will move the conquered and the unmovable. Not only do we, the victims, have to clean up the flesh and bone and blood running down the pavement, we must subject ourselves to endless dawah (proselytizing) for Islam on mind-numbing news shows on the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, and the like. FOX is lost. Sunday morning, Fox and Friends had on liar and deceiver Mubin Shaikh (Robert Spencer debated him here), Shaikh said “we must never equate Islam and terrorism.” The hosts nodded gravely. There is nowhere on TV you can get reality.
Teddy bears, candlelight vigils and hashtags will not defeat jihad.
Islamic terror-tied groups like CAIR rub their hooves in glee in the wake of every Islamic attack. After the body count, it’s their turn to wage jihad in the information battle-space.
One of the jihadis said, “I’m ready to do whatever I need to do in the name of Allah. I am ready in the name of Allah to do what needs to be done, including killing my own mother.”
What further proof does anyone need? Why the madness and irrational denial? Sixteen years after 9/11 and over thirty thousand deadly Islamic attacks, this is where we are? Yes, deliberate delusion and collusion continues. As I have so often lamented, in the wake of horrific jihad terror comes the post-jihad dawah (proselytizing for Islam). While jihadis scream “Allahu akbar” and “takbir,” elites in the media and academia assure us it is not about Allah or Islam.
As for the Muslims laughing and shouting “Allahu akbar!” in the wake of the attacks, you won’t ever read about that in the enemedia.
Nor will you hear much about these scenes from the London jihad slaughter (as reported in the Guardian):
–“He just stepped outside the bar for a second and a man ran up to him and said: ‘This is for my family, this is for Islam’, and stuck a knife straight in him. He’s got a seven-inch scar going from his belly round to his back,” Elizabeth O’Neill told reporters outside King’s College hospital.
–The van was “probably travelling at about 50 miles an hour” and hit “five or six people.”
–According to another witness, Eric, the men inside jumped out once the van crashed and “ran towards the people that they nearly ran over”. “[Then] they literally just started kicking them, punching them, they took out knives… it was a rampage really,” he said.
One man, Gerard, told the BBC he saw a woman being stabbed “10 or 15 times” by men shouting “This is for Allah.”
Nor will you hear much about the words spoken to a mother in London before a jihadi plunged a knife into her son’s stomach: “This is for Islam.”
Will we ever learn their motive?
One of the other jihadis who attacked London with two coreligionists before being shot dead by police deceived his neighbors into thinking he was a great guy, a good neighbor. He played football with their children on the nearby field. Secretly, he had a devout, destructive hatred, and he frequently changed his appearance in preparation of unleashing a deadly Islamic attack on the capital city, during which seven people died and up to 50 were injured last night. How many other “moderates” are in our midst? More than you can imagine.
Prime Minister Theresa May and every major media news outlet insists jihadis have “perverted” and/or “hijacked” Islam? How have they perverted it? They cite Quranic texts and teachings chapter and verse. They follow the hadith, Muhammad’s example.
Harun Khan, who leads the Muslim Council of Britain, said, “I am appalled and angered by the terrorist attacks at London Bridge and borough market, in my home city. These acts of violence were truly shocking and I condemn them in the strongest terms.” Is that so. What have Khan and his coreligionists who allege that this is a misunderstanding of Islam done to combat it? There is, for example, not a single program in any mosque or Islamic school in the UK (or the UK) to teach young Muslims to reject the Islamic State’s understanding of Islam. With the Islamic State energetically recruiting young Muslims in the US, that is a significant omission.
The Sun says that Ramadan is meant for devotion and peace. Since when? As Robert Spencer has noted: “A jihad group explained it back in 2012: ‘The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.’ Referring to a jihad attack that happened at that time, the message continued: ‘One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking. The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam.’”
All this dawah and whitewashing makes one thing clear. Terrorism works. In the wake of every jihad attack come sharia-backed policies, legislation, and submission. Freedom of speech is not the problem. Free exchange of ideas is not the problem. Islamic texts and teachings that exhort to jihad is the problem.
Yet Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following the London Bridge terror attack. Of course, good folks will say, well, that makes sense, because they don’t know better. But let me assure you, these measures will be used to silence my colleagues and me. The left has already proved to be too fearful of Islam to take real action against jihadis. And if my colleagues and I were not blacklisted and invited to debate these ideas in the national conversation, good people would see this for exactly what it is.
The West means to roll back technology, silence the mechanism, in which those religious teachings are shared? That is a primitive as jihad savagery.
As long as Quranic texts and teachings are seen as legitimate and holy, Muslims will share them, preach them, and act on them with or without the internet. What is May going to do, ban WhatsApp and Telegram, the dark web? She banned my colleagues and me, not jihad preachers or these Muslim terrorists who slaughtered Brits in the homeland. She equates those of us who oppose jihad (extremists) to the jihadis (extremists). If Theresa May were serious, she would lift the ban on Robert Spencer and me.
Like every bad left-wing idea, this steaming pile of dung is packaged in a blue Tiffany box. Remember how they sold “hate crime” “legislation” using the brutal beating of a gay man, Matthew Shepard (when actually it was just a drug deal gone bad). Hate crime legislation was officially criminalizing thought. Thought crime.
The internet is the last place for informed citizens to get news and information the sharia-compliant elite media won’t cover. Online is the last frontier for truth and free speech, and the left is going after that as well, enforcing the blasphemy laws under the sharia. Facebook has blocked my content from close one million followers.
If Theresa May wants to turn things around, the first thing she can do is lift the ban on Spencer and me — if for no other reason than to show that she finally understands that the problem is not those who oppose jihad, but jihad.
Instead, the dawah and whitewashing will continue.
