TO THE MAYOR OF MANCHESTER: THE SUICIDE BOMBER WAS A MUSLIM
In the aftermath of the horrific suicide bombing, the mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, wanted to make one thing perfectly clear. The man who blew himself was a terrorist, not a Muslim. To quote him directly, “The message that I would want to get over—and this is how the vast majority of people feel—this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.”
Mr. Burnham, with all respect to the pain your community is experiencing, and with full recognition of your desire to unite your people, you are terribly wrong. Dead wrong. The suicide bomber was a terrorist because of his Muslim faith. Until you acknowledge that and until the people of your community acknowledge that, you will not be able to combat the terror.
I imagine that most of the Muslims in Manchester are aghast at this atrocity. And I imagine most of them look at this as a perversion of their faith.
But many others do not. For them, this is what Islam does. It fights the unbelievers wherever it finds them, especially at a worldly concert attended by young people. Infidels!
I understand, Mr. Burnham, that your point was that Salman Abedi was not a true Muslim, since true Muslims do not commit such acts.
In that case, neither Osama bin Laden nor any members of Al-Qaeda were (or are) true Muslims.
And neither Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder of ISIS, who holds a Ph.D. in Quranic Studies from Iraq’s Saddam University for Islamic Studies, nor any members of ISIS are true Muslims.
And no member of the Taliban or Hamas (which stands for the “Islamic Resistance Movement”) or Hezbollah (“The Party of Allah”) or the Muslim Brotherhood are true Muslims.
And it’s just a coincidence that during the month of Ramadan, Islamic terrorist attacks increase dramatically around the world. (The bloodshed has already begun, with more than 25 Coptic Christians, including children, slaughtered on the first day of Ramadan.)
And it’s just a coincidence that Abedi allegedly memorized the Quran as a boy and would chant his Islamic prayers loudly in the street.
And it’s just a coincidence that numerous texts in the Quran are interpreted by millions of Muslims as justification for terrorist attacks.
And it’s just a coincidence that these same texts have been used by Muslims for centuries as a theological basis for acts of violence.
And it’s just a coincidence that suicide bombings between rival Muslim groups take place on a regular basis in mosques and in markets and at funerals.
And it’s just a coincidence that the terrorists responsible for 9-11 and Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon bombing and San Bernardino and Orlando and Nice, France; and Brussels, Belgium; and London, England; and Madrid, Spain; and Beslan, Russia (the list is almost endless) were all Muslims.
Focusing on England, it’s just a coincidence that BBC reports that, “Approximately 850 people from the U.K. have traveled to support or fight for jihadist organizations in Syria and Iraq, say the British authorities.” Need I say that all 850 were Muslims?
And Mr. Mayor, you must be aware that, “Manchester has long been a hotbed of Islamic extremism, with dozens or more Muslim-born radicals and converts known to have gone to fight for Islamic State and, security officials fear, in some cases secretly returned to continue their jihad in Britain.”
Is this just a coincidence?
Here in America, I guess it was just a coincidence that Nidal Malik Hasan, the 2009 Fort Hood shooter, calls himself a “Soldier of Allah” and was radicalized by the Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, (We killed al-Awlaki via drone attack in Yemen in 2011).
And it was just a coincidence that he shouted out “Allahu Akbar” as he wounded or killed more than 40 unarmed, American military personnel.
And it was just a coincidence that he previously turned a medical lecture into a radical Islamic screed, during which he allegedly justified suicide bombings, reportedlystating that if you didn’t believe in the Koran, “you are condemned to hell. Your head is cut off. You’re set on fire. Burning oil is burned down your throat.”
Pitifully, our government classified this 2009 Islamic terrorist attack as “workplace violence.” And pitifully, many leaders in England want to disassociate the Manchester bombing from Islam.
This is willful ignorance of the highest order. And it is willful ignorance that is deadly.
In contrast, Egypt’s President el-Sisi, himself a devout Muslim, delivered a courageous speech at Cairo’s prestigious Al-Azhar University in 2015, stating, “We need to revolutionize our religion.” He called for “religious discourse that is in keeping with its times,” warning that “the Islamic nation is being torn apart and destroyed” by extremism.
In Poland, Prime Minister Beata Szydło had some very strong words to say in response to the Manchester bombing. “Where are you headed Europe?” she asked. “Rise from your knees and from your lethargy or you will be crying over your children every day.”
She continued: “If you can’t see this—if you can’t see that terrorism currently has the potential to hurt every country in Europe, and you think that Poland should not defend itself, you are going hand in hand with those who point this weapon against Europe, against all of us.
“It needs to be said clearly and directly: This is an attack on Europe, on our culture, on our traditions.”
And it is an attack that cannot be separated from radical Islam.
Tragically, while Islamic terrorists want to cut our heads off, leaders in the West are burying their heads in the sand. And so, while we must not blame all Muslims (God forbid that we do), we must blame some. Focusing on the dangerous ones will save many lives.
WE ALL JUST NEED TO CO-EXIST – YOU FIRST!
“No Barriers, No Borders, We all need to co-exist.” –Katy Perry
This week, headline news read, “MASSIVE Explosions” Rock British Concert… Bodies Everywhere… Fatalities Confirmed… “It Was Huge-You Could Feel it in Your Chest.”
Yet, in London, we know that Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan told New York and London, “Terror attacks are a part of urban life.”
In America, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges begins her little-scripted diatribe on cue supporting those who follow the teachings of the Koran, all the while, overlooking the victims. This is all brought to you by your local, corrupt and treasonous politicians (Article 3, Section 3 of the US Constitution).
Here you see them using divide and conquer to gain control of the chaos that politicians and the media are allied in creating (Mark 3:25).
We see these officials act rather strange after these “terror attacks.” They seem to conglomerate on cue and ally themselves to condemn the acts, but not the actors. In the end, they ask the people to give up their rights while attempting to disarm them for the “global good.” Additionally, they attempt to forge new powers against the very people they are supposed to represent.
When are Americans going to figure out that this is a global initiative? This leads us to ask who the real terrorists are. They are nothing but an allied group of “useful idiots,” which will be disannulled (Isaiah 28:18).
Terror was originally defined in Oxford English Dictionary as:
“Government by intimidation”
Notice how Hollywood, the media, the music industry and corrupt government are all pushing forth the same initiative.
After the terror attack in Britain, Katy Perry pipes up in her ignorance and stated after the attack, “No barriers, no borders. We all need to co-exist.”
Katy wants the world to co-exist. I say, “You first, Katy!”
Ironically, in a display of hypocrisy, Katy Perry has a gated entrance to her mansion, which is located in a guarded community.
“They chose new gods; then was war in the gates…” -Judges 5:8
The reason there is war in the gates is because men have left serving the One, True God and followed after other gods, which is idolatry (Exodus 20).
Ariana Grande, whose concert was interrupted by the Islamic terrorist this week, claims to be a representative of America in Britain said, “I hate Americans, I hate America!” She went on to say on another occasion, “Islam is love!”
Yet, she is in a country that is disarmed by their government while being subjected to a foreign enemy without and overtaken by those who are committing the acts of terror, but continues her rhetoric (Romans 1:22).
People actually pay money to listen to this filth from an uneducated, indoctrinated fool that thinks that she is a representative of the American people.
Are these America’s representatives? Are these the real lawless legislators to the up and coming generation who are being used to change the laws of society? (Psalm 94:20) You better know that they are (Isaiah 14; Ezekiel 28:12-13)
“Let me make the songs of a nation and I care not who makes its laws.” – Plato quoted by Grout, Donald J. A History of Western Music, 1973. p. 8
Texas Sheriff fires back at critics over Manchester Facebook post
May 25, 2017 By
Denton County, Texas Sheriff Tracy Murphree received worldwide attention and criticism over his Facebook post Monday night reacting to the attack at a concert in Manchester, England. In part, Sheriff Murphree said, “Pay attention to what is happening in Europe. This is what happens when you disarm your citizens.”
The Sheriff defended his comments, telling the FOX Business Network’s Charles Payne, “I stand by my comments, I really thought they were on target. I thought I was basically repeating what many people have been saying for years. I was angered by what I saw in Manchester, children being killed, I have kids of my own.”
Murphree was surprised by the global reaction to his comments, saying, “That shocks me, I expected a lot of criticism from the left, from liberals, but I expected that more locally than worldwide. I don’t understand why a Texas Sheriff’s Facebook post has gone worldwide.”
Murphree then raised concerns about the impact of the political climate in Europe as well as under the Obama administration.
“I just feel like what the politicians and the governments have allowed to happen in Europe and for the past eight years here quite frankly, [I] can’t stand.”
According to Murphree, political correctness has been a key factor in creating an atmosphere where incidents such as this can occur.
“But I think political correctness is one of the reasons that these things happen, people are afraid they’re going to be called what I’ve been called, a racist or an Islamophobe or a hate-monger.”
Sheriff Murphree then reacted to criticisms of President Trump over efforts to build a wall along the border with Mexico.
“The president is called a racist because he wants to build a wall when it’s not a wall to keep people out, it’s a funnel to make sure that we can vet these folks to see who’s coming into our country, which we have every right to do.”
