A reader explained to me in response to an article of mine that Islam is a peaceful religion and those Muslims who kill infidels are angry because of what happened to them.
This is precisely the same dynamic in operation when an abused woman tries to justify the beating she gets from her boyfriend or husband. "He really is a nice, peaceful guy, but I must have done something to anger him, that caused him to viciously pummel me."
My gullible Muslim reader does not explain exactly what it is that happened to the tens of thousands of Muslims (1) that caused them to viciously attack Christians, Jews, Hindus, women, and children this past decade. Our presence in Saudi Arabia, the War in Iraq, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, all these things could be a trigger to violent action I suppose. However it doesn't explain that the majority of attacks, rapes, stonings, hangings, burnings, etc. are inflicted on non-combatants.
I suppose we should excuse Muslim gang-rapes on the ground that 9 out of 10 people involved in the rape find it enjoyable.
If Americans left every single place where Muslims are the majority, if America threw every single Jew out of Israel, if we took our troops out of every country in the world, there would still be things that anger Muslims.
There are Muslims who still seek revenge against unbelievers for the Crusades, for the downfall of the Ottoman Empire by the Allies after WWI, for the Reconquista, and for thousands of past insults by infidels to their religion, their prophet and their God.
So Muslims will always be angry if there is a single unbeliever breathing on this Earth.
Of all the nations on the Earth they hate America the most. The truth is Muslims do not hate us for our freedoms, sorry George Bush, they despise and attack us because we are the single strongest infidel nation and therefore a most formidable impediment to their goal of world domination. China's economic clout is barely one-third that of the US. If that were reversed, if China were the 800 pound gorilla on the block and dominated the world as the US does, then Osama Bin Laden certainly wouldn't be wasting his time on the US, it would be Chinese asses his fatwa would fall upon.
Look at the facts: China suppresses their Muslims, but it is the US, which does not suppress their Muslims, that gets his attention. Osama would attack China if they were the greatest infidel power on the planet, if the Chinese instead were the greatest impediment to a World Caliphate. But then would any idiot invoke the ridiculous phrase, "Muslims hate the Chinese for their freedoms?"
Here's the deal: America stands in the way of Muslim world domination. Whether we are a free nation or a dictatorship doesn't matter because there are no apologies we can make, no treaties we can sign, no amount of Jews we can kill, no abject deeds we can perform, no concessions we can offer that will placate them other than our abject surrender and submission to Allah. Then, perhaps, they won't be angry. Then, perhaps, they won't hate us.
The Religion of Peace, About the List of Terrorist Attacks
This list of terrorist attacks committed by Muslims since 9/11/01 (a rate of about four or five a day) is incomplete because only a small percentage of attacks are picked up by international news sources, even those resulting in multiple loss of life.
These are not incidents involving nominal Muslims killing for money or personal pride. This is not ordinary crime. We include incidents of deadly violence that can reasonably be determined to have been committed out of religious duty - as interpreted by the perpetrator.
We usually list only attacks that result in loss of life (with a handful of exceptions). In several cases, the victims are undercounted because deaths from trauma caused by the Islamists may occur in later days, despite the best efforts of medical personnel to keep the victims alive.
We usually don't include incidents related to combat, such as in Iraq and Afghanistan, unless it involves particularly heinous terror tactics. Unprovoked sniper, drive-by or roadside bombing attacks on military personnel serving normal police duties are sometimes included depending on the circumstances.
We acknowledge that a handful of incidents on the list may not fit the traditional definition of 'terror attack.' A small portion, for example, are of honor killings - although we very rarely include those in which a woman is killed by their husband, since this is often indistinguishable from a crime of passion (barring explicit circumstances).
Unfortunately, this list of Muslim terrorist attacks barely scratches the surface of atrocities committed in the name of Islam occurring world-wide each day. For that reason, we don't tally up the dead and dismembered, except on a weekly and monthly basis.
