Today’s Evil

9 Jan

These last couple of days have been nothing but shocking and downright sad for the Western World. I am referring to the terrible Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, where 12 people were killed by Muslim Terrorists. I have been trying each night to think about this situation and there were just too many conflicting and confused feelings deep inside me. To make this entry shorter than my mind wants it to be, I am relaying a discussion I had with my daughter.

I was dropping off Pearl at school and asked her what she knew about the attacks. She relayed what Charlie Hebdo is, some of the cartoons that were deemed offensive and that the French policeman protecting the office did not have guns. So far so good. We then delved under the covers in regards to who the terrorists were. She mentioned that all radicals are problematic, not just Islamists. We got to school, the conversation ended, but my mind revolved around what other radicals she was referring to.

I thought of politically based terrorist organizations, like the IRA, the Orange Order and ETA, along with racists oriented terrorists, like the Ku Klux Klan and the Nazis. But are these groups the equivalent to Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, ISIL/ Daesh, Boko Haram, the Taliban and others? Many like the IRA and the Orange Order were of different religious groups fighting each other in regards to sovereignty, much like Shia and Sunni Muslims in Iraq. The Klan and the Nazis were in my opinion very similar in nature to these radical Islamic terrorists organizations.

So what am I getting at? Well I feel Western Society was enlightened enough to stand-up and defend freedom against the hate-filled Klan and Nazis as they tried to spread their evil through society, and we succeeded. Therefore, I believe the world needs Muslims all around the world, specifically their religious Shia, Sunni and other leaders to change their laws that condemn people to death for blasphemy, being gay, changing to another religion and many more. Until these leaders change these laws, murders like Charlie Hebdo and the perpetual violence originating from Africa and the Middle East is on their hands because they advocate such actions.

The question is how to motivate Islamic leaders to make these changes. We can all post images from Charlie Hebdo, but what does that do?  We are all targets for Islamists anyhow, so we need our world leaders to draw a line for all countries to follow.  Melanie Philipps could not have said it any better, see:

I will leave you with one of the cartoons from Charlie Hebdo of Mohammed being beheaded by ISIS.  It is quite telling, because even the devout are at risk from the Islamists.  It is time for all of us to get out from behind our rocks and trees.  Evil is here.

I am the prophet asshole! Shut your trap, Infidel!

  1. I’ve received a few emails stating it is improper of me to suggest someone’s religion change. I get that my comments are a bit audacious, but the alternative to protect life is submitting to Islam’s laws and decrees. That my friends is submitting to a bully every moment of your life, which I will not advocate and something I will fight against. Check out Hugh Schofield’s article from BBC News:

  2. Excellent article from the Times of Israel, specifically “Islamist jihad cannot and will not be defeated if it is not honestly acknowledged. The enemies of freedom will not be picked out at border crossings, tracked on the internet, targeted, thwarted and ultimately marginalized if insistent self-defeating political correctness means those enemies are not even named.”

    It ends with “Does anybody seriously believe, for instance, that France is about to launch a crackdown on Islamist groupings at its higher-education institutions, or devote serious resources to investigating potential incitement at local mosques? Are France and the rest of Europe about to introduce passenger profiling at EU entry points, in the way that Israel does? Is the EU set to sanction Turkey for facilitating the flow of radicalized European Muslims to and from the Islamic State terror group in Syria and Iraq?”

    Not terribly likely, when the French president declares that “these terrorists and fanatics have nothing to do with the Islamic religion”?
