The evil men in London didn't leave people to conjecture as to their identity and motives. They told us outright. They hacked the soldier to death in broad daylight as "an eye for an eye" for what they claim goes on in "their land," which they say is "the same." (Yes, British soldiers hack innocent men to death with meat cleavers all the time in foreign lands.) The terrorist murderers hung around for twenty to thirty minutes, waiting for the police to get there, asking people to take pictures of them, and telling everyone their message:
"We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you."
"I apologise that women had to witness this today but in our lands our women have to see the same. You people will never be safe. Remove your governments – they don't care about you."
"The only reasons we killed this man ... is because Muslims are dying daily...This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for tooth."
One thing has already happened: Cameron & co. have informed the world that this has nothing to do with Islam. O-kay.
Look for Stockholm Syndrome to start next. "Gee, maybe they're right. Maybe if we worked to reduce collateral damage more in Muslim lands these things wouldn't happen. Maybe it really is our fault." Think I'm kidding? Read Alan Noble (a Baylor graduate student) on the subject of the Boston bombing. But don't say I didn't warn you: Loss of brain cells may ensue.
Words are, in fact, inadequate to express what is going on right now. The jihadis are merciless, and the response of the West is pathetic. Apparently there was a bit of a kerfuffle in the UK about some reporter who tweeted that the murderers were "of Muslim appearance." He has since apologized.
An innocent man has been hacked to death in London in broad daylight by Muslims who directly connected their attack to Islam, and that's what we're concerned about? The use of the phrase "Muslim appearance"?
Will we in the United States learn anything from this? Will we in the West ever confront the insanity of our "non-discriminatory" immigration policies, even in the light of these events? I am pessimistic. Indeed, if anyone wonders why I post less often about the jihad these days, one reason is just that it is wearying and depressing to interact with those who prefer to gouge out their eyes rather than see. The evidence is overwhelming that this is indeed about Islam and that unchecked Muslim immigration has cost many lives. Those statements should be considered far beyond reasonable doubt. That they aren't is a sign of just how far down Western man has fallen.
God have mercy on us.
By the way, I was re-reading this old post recently and still think it useful, though now, of course, outdated.
