You Remember September 11th? Here’s Why September 12th Was Worse!

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

On Tuesday, September 11th 2001 America was forever changed. At 8:46 a.m, five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern facade of the World Trade Center’s North Tower (1 WTC) and 17 minutes later at 9:03, another five fanatic Muslim hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 175 into the southern facade of the South Tower (2 WTC). At 9:37 a third plane hijacked by another 5 fanatic Muslim terrorists flew into the Pentagon.

This was the most devastating attack to happen on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor. 2,977 innocent Americans lost their lives to the claws of fanatic Islam.

American men, women, children, Christians, Jews and Muslims were all the same to the terrorists who carried out the hideous 9/11 attack, they were all AMERICAN!

This was not about land or about foreign policy, this was about a grotesque and violent opposition to what America stands for; FREEDOM & EQUALITY!

The initial shock, pain and mourning was terrible and 13 years later many still cannot deal with the loss.

As an Israeli, I have seen and experienced the result of terrorism and have faced terrorists while serving in the IDF. I have lost men in battle as well as friends in random terrorist attacks and am way too familiar with this kind of pain. What these fanatic Muslim terrorists do not understand is, we, the free people of the world, have compassion. We care for each other and when they attempt to murder, destroy and cripple us, we actually become stronger and heroes are born.

The personal loss on 9/11 was something no human should ever experience but when it comes America’s pride, Al Qaeda lost big time! Not only did the great USA pick itself up, it rose more united and stronger than ever.

Then Came September 12th!

There is only one thing more tragic than experiencing a terror attack and that is allowing those who attacked to do it again!

The United States of America went on an all out offensive against those who were responsible for the 9/11 attack and took out the head of the snake; Bin Laden. The only problem is, what was actually cut off was the tail and it wasn’t a snake, it was a lizard and a lizard’s tail grow back!

Unlike Hitler whose entire ideology came from his own head and could not be replaced, Bin Laden is a result of shared religious belief that needs no justification since it came from Allah.

Fanatic Islam has been the source for the majority of international terrorism over the past 50 years.

Islamic ( fanatic Islam) ideology does not believe in freedom or equality and believes in a social norm that would make most people reading this blog sick to their stomach.

It doesn’t matter how many bullets you killed Bin Laden with or where you dumped his body, when you bow or show respect to cultures or countries that do not believe women are allowed to drive, you are fueling the next 9/11.

I’ll admit it, I don’t like Obama, but this is not a problem that is exclusive to his administration. The United States has made treaties over the years with Muslim countries that laugh at the idea of freedom and equality, even for their own citizens! The burning of American flags can be seen from the same Islamic regimes that America thinks they have a good relationship with! Have you EVER seen an Israeli demonstration with burning American flags?!

Qatar is an official ally of the United States of America. Qatar is also the largest funder of Islamic terror as they ally themselves and fund organizations that seek the destruction of all Western society and culture including that of the USA.

The Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani with Hamas head in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh during the emir’s October 2012 visit to Gaza. With that information known one, must ask why the Obama administration just signed an $11 BILLION weapons deal with Qatar! When @Blocknesmonster brought this Business Insider story to my attention, I could not believe my eyes!I understand Muslims have oil, but isn’t American lives more important?

Is Racial Profiling Justified?

While I understand why Muslims would be offended when they walk through airport security and are targeted for security checks only because they are Muslim, if Jews were blowing things up and flying planes into sky scrapers, all my anger would be reserved ONLY for those using my religion to justify murder.

Moderate Muslims should be the first to cooperate with security checks and encourage racial profiling as it eases the ability to catch those who are giving peaceful Muslims a bad name.

It might very well be that these terrorists are perverting the way of Islam but that does not change the fact that they believe they are following and preserving Allah’s way.

This is the Islamic terrorist organization that Israel recently fought a war against. Why anyone would want anything else besides total destruction of Hamas is beyond me.

America thought that if they took down Saddam and gave the people of Iraq freedom, they would be doing the Iraqi people a favor. Obama was so sure the war in Iraq was over, he bragged about it time and time again until this happened!

ISIS, Hizbollah, Hamas, Al Qaeda, PLO and many other terrorist organizations have one thing in common, they all believe that Allah gave them the right to murder.

There is not a single Islamic regime in the world that is peaceful and believes in giving equality even to their own citizens. I am not talking about what they do to homosexuals or other minority groups, I am talking to what they do to their own women!

Whether it’s the ban on women drivers or arresting women who do not cover themselves completely, fanatic Islam has absolutely nothing in common with anyone who believes in all men and women are created equally!

Are We Willing To Die For Truth As Much As They Are Willing To Kill For Lies?

Fanatic Muslims believe their lies more than we believe our truths and they are willing to die and kill you to protect their beliefs. While we are battling it out in the UN, trying to justify our actions and wars, organizations like ISIS are trying to figure out the cruelest way to murder innocent people and broadcast it all over the web.

While we are making rules of engagement and war based on humanity, those who are being protected by these rules reject them based on their religion.

Many claim Al Qaeda and ISIS were created by the United State of America and the truth is, they are not totally wrong. It is not that the US intended in any way to create these hideous Islamic terror organizations, but when you train and arm one fanatic Islamic movement to fight another, the guns will eventually be pointed you!

On September 11th, 2001, Islamic terrorists carried out a horrific attack killing innocent Americans. The Muslims terrorists that murdered almost 3,ooo Americans did not come from Saudi Arabia or Iran, these were American Muslims who were given the luxury of living freely in the land of opportunity! They were and are free to study, work, live and even become President, but they chose their barbaric ideology over freedom.

Are All Muslims Terrorists?

The answer is an absolute NO and anyone who would say yes is a racist. There are many peaceful Muslims who despise what the radical Muslims are doing.

According to all intelligence services around the world, radical Islam makes up between 15% – 25% of all Muslims. The problem is, 15% – 25% of 1.2 BILLION equals 180,000,000 – 300,000,000 MILLION people dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization!

When the United States allies themselves with radical Islamic regimes that represent the 25% of Muslims, they are actually starting the timer for the next bomb.

If there is anything Hitler taught us, it is, there comes a time when we must stop talking and start dropping bombs. There is no treaty or amount of money that can convince extreme Islamic terrorists to betray Allah. There is only one way to make sure 9/11 doesn’t happen again and that is to fight and destroy anyone and everyone who believes that such an attack is justified, moral or a ticket to virgin paradise. Any deals, treaties or partnerships with regimes that believe killing innocent people is the way to go is the fuel that will be used in the next flight to hit……

A message to moderate and peaceful Muslims.

There are some who say you do not exist, I know you do!

Whether it’s my neighbor Ashraf from Bethlehem or Aalimah who is studying law at a prestigious American University, YOU are victims of Islamic terror. The 25% radical Muslims claim they represent you and if you do not shout from the rooftops and support America’s offensive against these groups, you are actually supporting them. If you are not using your freedom of speech to vocally oppose and fight radical Islam, you will be considered part of the problem.

Is that fair?

NO! But neither was the death of 2,977 innocent Americans who died in what Muslim terrorists claimed was the way of Jihad.

I cannot imagine the predicament you are in, but if you want people to see you as the peace loving people I know you are, you must be on all online platforms and universities campuses fighting those radicals who are giving you a bad name!

Here is just one example of an Israeli Muslim who has decided he has had enough of radical Muslims giving him a bad name. Mohammad Zoabi is the key to peace in the Middle East and if anyone; Jew, Muslim or Christian, attack him, I will be the first to stand for his protection as a Muslim, an Israeli and a human being!

Spanish Imam Prays for ‘Destruction of Jews’ Near Madrid

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

Spain’s Sheikh Shaleheoldine al-Moussaoui, imam of the municipality of Azuqueca De Henares near Madrid, longs to see God “destroy the plundering Jews.”

In a Friday sermon posted to the Internet this week, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the imam prayed, “Do not spare a single one of them.”

The anti-Semitic sheikh called the Jewish People ‘treacherous, war-mongering killers.’

“What is being done to the Muslims in Palestine, in Gaza, as well as in the other Muslim countries – we would have been surprised if it were done by anyone other than the Jews,” he declared.

Australian Rabbi: Love Muslims and Everything Will Be OK

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

Christian and Jewish religious leaders in Australia have launched a “We’ll love Muslims 100 years” campaign to express love and support for the country’s Muslim population, the JTA reported.

“We have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence,” explained Rabbi Zalman Kastel, of the Together for Humanity Foundation.

He and pastor Brad Chilcott, national director of Welcome to Australia, a non-profit that focuses on issues relating to immigration and asylum, are heading the campaign that is supposed to make Islamic jihadists love Christians and Jews.

The name of the campaign – loving Muslims for 100 years – is a riff on a recent headline, published in the Weekend Australian, that stated, “We’ll fight Muslims 100 years,” according to a report in The Guardian.

It is clear why they will love Muslims for only 100 years and not any longer because if “love” is the solution to Muslim terror, there won’t be any Christians and Jews left in the world in the year 2114.

The year is 2024 is more likely, but let’s not quibble about the extra zero added on to 10 years.

Any assumption that Rabi Kastel is another Reform “rabbi” smoking The New York Times is dead wrong.

Believe it or not, he is a strictly Orthodox rabbi born and raised in Brooklyn.

He and his non-Jewish pals plan three major love events in Australia to rally Australian Muslims around the banner of love.

The Together for Humanity Foundation has been around for 12 years, in which time its love has paralleled the spread of fanatical Islam to the point that many Muslim countries as well as almost the entire non-Muslim world, except Israel, is scared to death, literally.

The Humanity Foundation was launched less than year after 9/11 and 12 years before the Islamic State ISIS has declared war on the United States, although President Barack Obama dismisses the declaration while ISIS beheads one American journalist, prepares another one for death and claims it has cells in the United States ready to strike fear into the hearts of heathen Christians and Jews who do not accept Islam. It does not mean middle class Islam but the real stuff that also expresses love – love for hate and love for death.

The catalyst for the “We’ll Love Muslims for 100 Years’ campaign was a recent headline the Weekend Australian, “We’ll fight Islam 100 years.”

It is forbidden to express the words “fight” in the world of Woodstock, unless one is fighting for “love” of everything, including hate. Or as John Lennon sang, “Imagine.” That is far as Rabbi Kastel’s reality goes – imagination.

But he insists he is not living in Woodstock.

It would be interesting to know what Talmudic discussion he uses for his outlook. But so far he is using his foundation’s Muslim president, Christian chairman and an atheist patron to back him.

The good rabbi, may God grant him a speedy spiritual recovery, is bothered by the “harsh talk” against Muslims in mainstream and social media.

“I was concerned about shrill, harsh talk we see both in social and mainstream, even though there is a lot of good interfaith work going on in Australia every day,” he said, quoted by the London Guardian.

“As a result, we have Muslims who are made to feel like terrorists in the past few years and they report the atmosphere is similar to post-9/11 and it is simply as a result of cultural incompetence.

“We are all on the same team, if I may use that word, in terms of the result, and that is peace.”

UPDATE: Hamas Executes 21 Arabs in Gaza

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Please see important update at the end of the article regarding the photos originally published in this article.

The Islamic terror organization, Hamas, publicly executed 11 Gazans in Gaza City on Friday morning at 10am.

UPDATE 2:15pm: 7 more Gazans were executed on Friday afternoon. We just learned that 3 Gazans were executed yesterday. for a total of 21 Gazans executed by Hamas in the past 24 hours.

The 11 executed Arabs were accused of treason by Hamas. A Hamas security official claims the 11 had been tried in a Hamas court.

Hamas accused them of trying to overthrow Hamas by collaborating with Israel.

Hamas has warned Gazans to not publicize the names of the executed, as presumably they want to include them in the list of people killed in Operation Protective Edge. Their bodies were moved to Shifa hospital after the executions.

Hamas is currently running an internal operation to seek out and execute every Gazan they suspect is trying to overthrow Hamas or collaborate with Israel, which of course is a good cover for killing off any political opponents.

On Friday afternoon, Hamas executed an additional 7 Gazans outside the Omari Mosque after prayers.

It’s important to note, that unlike ISIS, Hamas did not behead their victims when killing them. They shot some.

Apparently to some, this is a very important distinction.

Obama Decides that ISIS Does not Speak for Islam

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

President Barack Obama has pontificated that the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) does not speak for Islam.

ISIS “speaks for no religion,” said the President, who doubles as de facto Secretary of Islamic Defense.

How does he know ISIS does not speak for Islam? He explains, “Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.”

America’s expert on religion apparently never learned about the Crusades, nor does he know that leading Christian leaders justify killing homosexuals because they are deemed a threat to Christianity.

“ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings,” Obama continued, taking time off from his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard to explain that ISIS’s radical Islamic ideology is “bankrupt,” an implied assumption that bankrupt ideology does not speak for anyone.

Perhaps Hitler did not speak for Germans?

Responding to the ISIS’s beheading of American photojournalist James Foley, President Obama continued, “ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & the Levant while ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria. The aims and objectives of ISIS/ISIL are clear – establish an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East and eventually a global caliphate. That global caliphate includes The White House. This means purifying Islam. Those Muslims who are deemed insufficiently Muslim will be killed….

“One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.”

What constitutes someone speaking for a religion? There are no lack of usurpers who challenge the authority of Judaism and Christianity. Each faith has many sects that are not recognized by each other, but who, except for Obama, decides what religious leader speaks for Judaism or Christianity.

The answer, outside of the Vatican and Israel where religion and state are intertwined as a matter of self-survival, lies in valid surveys.

A 9/11/13 Pew Survey revealed that a “median of 57% across the 11 Muslim publics surveyed hold an unfavorable view” of Al Qaeda. That is a polite way of saying that 43 percent of Muslim dis not state an unfavorable view of the terrorist network.

A Gallup poll in 2008 stated that 36.6 percent of the world’s approximately 1.8 Muslims partially, totally, or in some way justified the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

In numbers, that means approximately 600,000,000 Muslims are roaming the world with radical Islamic views.

Not all of them, and perhaps a small minority of them, are ISIS enthusiasts. Many more are big on Al Qaeda, Taliban, Hezbollah the Army of Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood and its offspring Hamas.

If the definition of ISIS radicalism is beheading and establishing an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East, these groups are not far apart, unless Obama preaches that their ideology is no less bankrupt than suicide bombers who blow up women and children, and Hamas executions who shoot people in the head and the back, drag their bodies in the street and cart off body parts of Israel soldiers as souvenirs or booty for ransom.

My Take on the Ceasefire

Tuesday, August 19th, 2014

For those of you who follow Israel_Shield on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I try to get information to you before you hear it on the news. You also know that I am VERY careful to release information only when it is confirmed and released by the IDF.

That is why this post is so difficult for me to write. Let me be perfectly clear, I have absolutely no information as to what is going on in Cairo. I have no idea why Netanyahu agreed at all to a ceasefire with a fanatic Islamic terror organization and I do not understand why he or anyone else (Obama) would ever contemplate accepting any terms by an organization that states loud and clear their goal of Israel’s destruction.

I have been feeding off Islamic news channels that are reporting a major breakthrough at the Cairo talks. I have heard everything from Netanyahu gave in to all Hamas’s demands to Hamas has agreed to let Abu Mazen take over Gaza.

Unfortunately, I have heard nothing from the Israeli side. My Prime Minister has kept complete and total silence and unlike the Gaza war where I had inside information, this time, I have nothing and it is making me VERY nervous.

The way I see it, there are one of three options here. 

1. Barack Obama has already held back missile delivery to Israel over this Gaza war and Mr. Obama is now threatening Netanyahu with some kind of apocalyptic threat.

As much as it is clear to me that Obama is no friend of Israel, I don’t believe Netanyahu would sell out, considering he knows Congress, the Senate and the majority of the American people understand that between Israel and Hamas, only Israel is a friend.

2. The second option is Netanyahu is waiting for Hamas to make a move and attack Israel. While Hamas has an impeccable record of screwing up and breaking ceasefires, this is a dangerous game of Russian Roulette Bibi is playing. All Hamas has to do now is keep a low profile and begin refurbishing its missiles without firing and call Bibi’s bluff. No missiles shot, Bibi can’t attack.

3. The third and most worrisome option yet most probable one is that Binyamin Netanyahu has given in to Hamas demands.

When I say Hamas demands I mean Bibi has given up on the demilitarization of Gaza demand as well as dropped the weapons blockade Israel has been holding on Gaza for the past 9 years and has also agreed to hold off all operations in Gaza including tunnel discovery, destruction and terrorist assassinations.

What has Hamas promised? Hamas has given us their word that they will not shoot at Israel (until their missile supply is fully refurbished!)

There is only one way for Israel to get out of this mess and that is if Hamas attacks. I know it sounds horrible but if they sit quiet and this ridiculous ceasefire goes through, Hamas will be busier than ever buying new missiles and digging new tunnels!

It’s “Name The Enemy,” Not ‘Rename’ The Enemy

Monday, August 18th, 2014

(Reposted with permission from author’s website)
Moderate truth-teller Daniel Pipes (Dream) has further moderated his stance on Islam by actually entertaining the idea of “Moderate Islamism”, with Andrew C. McCarthy- whom I’ve debated about this- giving it some credence. We’ve gone from Naming the Enemy -Nazism, Communism- to Renaming the Enemy – “Islamic Totalitarianism”, “Radical Islam”, “Islamism”, etc,. all to the enemy’s benefit. This is Unacceptable, especially during wartime. If you’re afraid to name the problem- Islam- then you can’t fight it effectively, and the enemy wants this to continue forever. I’m once again posting my argument for why we should Always Call Islam Islam:

I wrote the following piece – Calling Islam “Islam” – a few years ago, and I think it’s worth posting again. I notice that after each Islamic attack against us, people begin to use more proper terminology to identify the enemy, which is crucial in eventually defeating the enemy. I recall watching panel discussions after 9/11, with each panelist using a different term to describe the enemy we face. That annoyed the hell out of me as I think it’s incredibly important to identify the proper terms when speaking about our enemy, and to NEVER create terms, for whatever reason. To me, the only difference between “Islamism” and Islam is three letters. Below I try my best to make the case why we should always call Islam “Islam.”

Western intellectuals and commentators refer to the enemy’s ideology as:
“Islamic Fundamentalism,” “Islamic Extremism,” “Totalitarian Islam,” “Islamofascism,” “Political Islam,” “Militant Islam,” “Bin Ladenism,” “Islamonazism,” “Radical Islam,” “Islamism,” etc….

The enemy calls it “Islam.”

Imagine, if during past wars, we used terms such as “Radical Nazism,” “Extremist Shinto” and “Militant Communism.” The implication would be that there are good versions of those ideologies, which would then lead some to seek out “moderate” Nazis. Those who use terms other than “Islam” create the impression that it’s some variant of Islam that’s behind the enemy that we’re facing. A term such as “Militant Islam” is redundant, but our politicians continue praising Islam as if it were their own religion. Bush told us “Islam is peace” — after 2,996 Americans were murdered in its name. He maintained that illusion throughout his two terms, and never allowed our soldiers to defeat the enemy. And now we have Obama, who tells us, from Egypt:

“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

If only he felt that way about America. Washington’s defense of Islam has trumped the defense of America and this dereliction of duty could well be called “Islamgate.

Islam is a political religion; the idea of a separation of Mosque and State is unheard of in the Muslim world. Islam has a doctrine of warfare, Jihad, which is fought in order to establish Islamic (“Sharia”) Law, which is, by nature, totalitarian. Sharia Law calls for, among other things: the dehumanization of women; the flogging/stoning/killing of adulterers; and the killing of homosexuals, apostates and critics of Islam. All of this is part of orthodox Islam, not some “extremist” form of it. If jihadists were actually “perverting a great religion,” Muslims would have been able to discredit them on Islamic grounds and they would have done so by now. The reason they can’t is because jihadists are acting according to the words of Allah, the Muslim God. From the Koran:

“Slay the idolators wherever you find them…” Chapter 9, verse 5

“When you encounter the unbelievers, strike off their heads until you have made a great slaughter among them….” Ch. 47:4

Beyond the doctrine, there is the historical figure of Mohammad, who, more than anyone, defines Islam. How would you judge a man who lies, cheats, steals, rapes and murders as a way of life? This evil man is Islam’s ideal man, Mohammad. Whatever he said and did is deemed moral by virtue of the fact that he said it and did it. It’s no accident that the only morality that could sanction his behavior was his own. Nor is it an accident that Muslims who model themselves after him are the most violent.

For the 13 years that Mohammad failed to spread Islam by non-violent means, he was not so much peaceful as he was powerless. It was only through criminal activity and with the help of a large gang of followers that he managed to gain power. But he wanted his moral pretense too, so he changed Islam to reflect the fact that the only way it could survive was through force. And so, acting on Allah’s conveniently timed “revelation” that Islam can and should be spread by the sword, Mohammad led an army of Muslims across Arabia in the first jihad. From then on, violence became Islam’s way in the world. And today, acting on Mohammad’s words, “War is deceit” — in the sense that Muslims use earlier “peaceful” verses from the Koran as a weapon against the ignorance and good will of their victims. Those “peaceful” passages in the Koran were abrogated by later passages calling for eternal war against those who do not submit to Islam. How Mohammad spread Islam influenced the content of its doctrine and therefore tells us exactly what Islam means.
Note also that the only reason we’re talking about Islam is because we’ve been forced to by its jihad. And where are Islam’s “conscientious objectors”? Nowhere to be found, for even lax Muslims have been silent against jihad. But that doesn’t stop desperate Westerners from pointing to them as representives of “Moderate Islam.”

Far from being a personal faith, Islam is a collectivist ideology that rejects a live-and-let-live attitude towards non-Muslims. And while the jihadists may not represent all Muslims, they do represent Islam. In the end, most Muslims have proven themselves to be mere sheep to their jihadist wolves, irrelevant as allies in this war. Recovering Muslims call the enemy’s ideology “Islam,” and they dismiss the idea of “Moderate Islam” as they would the idea of “Moderate Evil.” When, based on his actions, Mohammad would be described today as a “Muslim Extremist,” then non-violent Muslims should condemn their prophet and their religion, not those who point it out.

Islam is the enemy’s ideology and evading that fact only helps its agents get away with more murder than they would otherwise. Western politicians have sold us out, so it’s up to the rest of us to defend our way of life by understanding Islam and telling the truth about it in whatever way we can. If we can’t even call Islam by its name, how the hell are we going to defend ourselves against its true believers? One could argue that we’d be better off if the West would just choose one of the many terms currently used for the enemy’s ideology. For my part, I call the enemy what they are, “Jihadists,” and our response, “The War on Jihad.” But behind it all, it’s Islam that makes the enemy tick.
Despite my frustrations with the refusal of many to call Islam “Islam,” I know that those who speak out against Jihad put themselves in danger, and I respect their courage. But it’s important that we acknowledge Islam’s place in the threat we face and say so without equivocation. Not saying “Islam” helps Islam and hurts us. So let’s begin calling the enemy’s ideology by its name. Let’s start calling Islam “Islam.”


Below is my response to those critics, especially Muslims and Leftists, who make the issue about Muslims and not Islam; who always allege that critics of Islam are condemning 1.5 billion people, that Muslims are good people and innocent, etc., etc. So here’s an excerpt from my piece Non-Muslim Muslims and the Jihad Against the West (aka My Name is Bosch and I’m a Recovered Muslim):

For those who want to make this about Muslims and not Islam, here are some of my thoughts on that:

First, my name is Bosch and I’m a recovered Muslim, so I have some insight into this, coupled with the fact that I studied Islam as if my life depended on it after 9/11.

There is Islam and there are Muslims. Muslims who take Islam seriously are at war with us and Muslims who don’t aren’t. But that doesn’t mean we should consider these reluctant Muslims allies against Jihad. I’ve been around Muslims my entire life and most of them truly don’t care about Islam. The problem I have with many of these essentially non-Muslim Muslims, especially in the middle of this war being waged on us by their more consistent co-religionists, is that they give the enemy cover. They force us to play a game of Muslim Roulette since we can’t tell which Muslim is going to blow himself up until he does. And their indifference about the evil being committed in the name of their religion is a big reason why their reputation is where it is.

So while I understand that most Muslims are not at war with us, they’ve proven in their silence and inaction against jihad that they’re not on our side either, and there’s nothing we can say or do to change that. We just have to finally accept it and stop expecting them to come around, while doing our best to kill those who are trying to kill us.

Another problem with Muslims who aren’t very Muslim is that they lead some among us to conclude that they must be practicing a more enlightened form of Islam. They’re not. They’re “practicing” life in non-Muslim countries, where they are free to live as they choose. But their “Islam” is not the Islam. There’s no separate ideology apart from Islam that’s being practiced by these Muslims in name only, there’s no such thing as “Western Islam”.

Non-observant Muslims are not our problem, but neither are they the solution to our problem. Our problem is Islam and its most consistent practitioners. There is nothing in Islam that stays the hand of Muslims who want to kill non-Muslims. If an individual Muslim is personally peaceful, it’s not because of Islam, it’s because of his individual choice, which is why I often say that your average Muslim is morally superior to Mohammad, to their own religion. The very rare Muslim who helps us against Jihad is acting against his religion, but that doesn’t stop some among us from thinking that his choice somehow shines a good light on Islam. It doesn’t. A good Muslim according to us is a bad Muslim according to Islam.
