It has become evident from watching the situation with interest in Paris over the past few days, that France has been tolerating Islamic separatism in their country for some time. France has been sleeping with a cobra, and now faces the consequences. Is our turn coming, or has it already come and we are in denial?
Celebrities such as Judge Jeanine Pirro of Fox News and elected officials on both sides of the aisle, such as Congressmen Fred Upton and Senator Chuck Schumer, agree that the Paris event is an imminent threat to our way. President Obama in the meanwhile, defends free speech vehemently, for which he receive praise from the press, as he refuses to use the words “Islam, “radical Islam,” “jihad” or “shariah” when condemning the Jihad-Shariah-driven shooting in Paris.
Worth remembering is Obama’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Sept. 25, 2012, in which he said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Not wanting to limit his remarks to Islam, Obama also addressed critics of Christianity and Judaism, saying, “But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated, or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Muslims are criticized for not speaking out against acts of terrorism made in the name of Islam. Is it because they are afraid or reprisal, or sympathize with the terrorists?
Bill Maher didn’t hold back Wednesday night, January 7, when appearing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel’s Live show he blasted “hundreds of millions” of the world’s Muslims for allegedly supporting the Islamic terrorist massacre of cartoonists, writers, and editors at the Parisian satirical magazine that had mocked the Prophet Muhammad.
Continuing, Maher made this important point: “I know most Muslim people would not have carried out an attack like this, but hundreds of millions of them support an attack like this. They applaud an attack like this. What they say is ‘We don’t approve of violence, but you know what? When you make fun of the Prophet, all bets are off.”‘
We see a similar situation in the violence following the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, and Eric Gardner in Staten Island. Where was the outrage among black leaders over the terrorism against shopkeepers in Ferguson and the citizens of New York and countless other cities? Who is speaking out against the crimes committed by blacks against other blacks? Instead, we hear from our leaders that something else is at fault – bias of police officers, guns, poverty, centuries of repression, or anything other than personal responsibility.
Perhaps there is another phenomena involved? It has been shown that the rallying cries about the injustice dealt Michael Brown and Eric Gardner have no basis in fact. They are merely symbols used by agitators to rally the ignorant masses behind an attack on the existing economic and political structures.
The people who ultimately suffer the consequences are not the agitators, but their followers and the victims of crowd violence. The same is true of Islamic terrorists. The name of Allah is used to rally support for lawless acts directed as much against fellow Muslims as “infidels.”
