ISIS and the Quaran:

Type: Article

Islamic State (or ISIS or IS) is without doubt a particularly vile Islamist group.  Disavowed by Al-Qaeda for being too extreme, the group emerged in early 2013 and is led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  Baghdadi recently declared himself leader of a new caliphate which so far covers parts of Iraq and Syria. Islamic State intends to stretch its caliphate much further – including in to parts of Europe.

After the beheading of the two American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, President Obama made a claim very similar to the one Islam’s apologists constantly repeat with every horrific crime committed by an Islamic terrorist group. He said: "ISIL is not Islamic”, and backed up his claim with two statements:

No religion condones the killing of innocents

The vast majority of ISIL's victims have been Muslim

 A teenager who attacked a Jewish teacher in France with a machete was sentenced to seven years in jail on Thursday by a French juvenile court, judicial sources said.

The 17-year-old was convicted at a closed-doors trial for slightly wounding the teacher who was wearing a traditional Jewish skullcap, or yarmulke, while walking to school in January 2016 in the southern city of Marseille.

Prosecutor Brice Robin said shortly after the attack that the teenager, who has not been identified because of his age, said he had acted in the name of the Islamic State militant group.

It is now clear that all nine Paris bombers came camouflaged as refugees to Europe. A recent warning from the Federal Intelligence Service (BND) indicates high risk of IS-fighters arriving. According to the announcement from the end of October Islamic State prepares its fighters specifically to submerge among the many refugees and how to travel unnoticed. For example, they are trained to appear as refugees in the case of interrogation by police officers.”

The “Trojan Horse” school scandal was the transformation of state schools in Britain into de facto Islamic schools. Rasheed Benyahia’s mother was governor of a group of schools at the center of the scandal. She now claims that “the case might have been used by extremists to turn him against Britain.” Even among a group known for its victimhood posturing, this really takes the cake.

“He indicated he was planning to leave Canada to fight for the Islamic State. He indicated if he was unable to travel, he would strike from within. He was going to target government buildings, monuments, infrastructure such as electrical grids and federal employees.”

That is an apt summation of the hazards of preventing young Muslims who want to travel to Syria and join the Islamic State from doing so. They might all too easily decide to wage jihad in their home countries. As far as Western authorities are concerned, however, to consider that possibility is “Islamophobic.”

Summary: 

I’ve been pointing this out for well over a year, but you know, it was a “racist” and “Islamophobic” thing to say. But now we hear this admission: “IS announced that it would send attackers to the continent through the route which refugees were taking. At the time, politicians denied this…Our leaders thought, if we now admit that there could be terrorists among refugees, then it would serve as fodder for right-wing populists and lead to more anti-migrant feelings. So they played it down, but ultimately that was not the right thing to do.”
