-Muslims ‘Have Nothing Whatsoever To Do With Terrorism’?

by Dr. D ~ November 28th, 2015

On November 19, Hillary Clinton made the following statement:

"Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

Is her observation based upon fact or is Mrs. Clinton painting a picture of what the world should be like from her rosy PC gilded perspective? An article by Guy Benson blows at least a few hole in Hillary’s dictum:

…  Some Muslims have quite a lot to do with terrorism, actually.  Like the ones who were led by their hardcore theology to kill 3,000 people on 9/11.  Or blow up trains in Spain.  Or target London’s public transit system with bombs.  Or slaughter students at a Kenyan university.  Or Devastate a nightclub in Indonesia.  Or shoot up a shopping mall in Nairobi.  Or lay siege to a hotel in Mumbai.  Or terrorize Nigerian schoolgirls. Or, you know, take hostages in Mali. I could go on for some time.  But those aren’t real Muslims, our Thought Leaders inform us.  Islamists loudly beg to differ — and wouldn’t they know a lot more about their motives and religious teachings than Western purveyors of bumper sticker feel-goodery?

Response: Let us be clear, the first part of Hillary’s statement is true. We are not at ‘war’ with Islam and the majority of Muslims are peaceful and tolerant. However there are teachings within that religion that do drive the radicals toward violence and terrorism. Also there is a sizable minority of Muslims even in this country that do support the actions of the terrorists and hold a number of illiberal anti-Western ideals.

Lets take a closer look at even the parts of Mrs. Clinton’s Statement that we do agree with for further clarification along with a dose of reality:

‘Islam is not our adversary’

Islam is not our adversary but in reality Islam is in a perpetual and an historical state of opposition to the West or any other culture and religion or form of government not based upon the Quran and sharia law. It is a stated goal of Islam to rule the world and force Islam and sharia law upon every nation and people. Fact is, Islam is not just a religion but also contains a prescribed a form of government called sharia which includes laws and regulations for everyday life and culture.

Even among those ‘peaceful and tolerant’ American Muslims, a poll taken several years ago shows that a sizable minority (40%) would rather live under sharia law than U.S. Constitutional jurisprudence.

‘Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people’

The majority of American Muslims are peaceful and tolerant. But even in America 46% of the Muslims here would like to see blasphemy against Islam criminalized and a shocking 11.5% believe that the death penalty would be appropriate for offenders.

Then there is the recent survey by Al Jazeera that shows 81% of the Muslims in the Middle East support ISIS. This kind of statistic should put the lie to the liberal dictum that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam. Who better would understand Islam and its teachings? Muslims in the Middle East or liberal PC supporters in the West?

In reality, a large number of Muslims around the world are not peaceful or tolerant. If only 1% of the Billion plus Muslims support terrorism around the world that would be 10 million. A more realistic number would be 10% or 100 million Muslims. But the Al Jazeera poll makes us wonder just how many Muslims are actually supporters of peace and toleration?

Conclusion: The first part of Hillary’s statement may be substantially true but even that needs a dose of reality. Mrs. Clinton’s claim that Muslims ‘have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism’ is completely false. Some Muslims have quite a lot to do with terrorism, actually, and tens of millions of others philosophically support their actions.               *Top
