Did you know that a “truck attack” occurred in Nice, France, and that the driver had recently been convicted of “road rage”? Apparently we are to believe that an angry guy got in his truck and took out his frustration on hordes of innocent people. And while certain facts may be true (yes, the guy was angry, and yes, he drove a truck to commit his evil deed), they are not the underlying truth. And it is this underlying truth the West is so desperate to avoid.
The underlying truth is that Islam is totalitarianism that mandates the destruction of all things not Islamic as written in the Quran, the Sunnah, and the Hadith.
That’s pretty much it. It’s all you need to know. From this basic premise of world domination, all else flows. It explains the most heinous acts of violence perpetuated by Islamic terrorists, the most subtle form of creeping sharia that advances the caliphate by stealth means and everything in between.
Islam demands that Islam rule over everyone. And for Islam to rule, non-believers are given three choices: (1) convert, (2) pay the jizya tax and live as second-class citizens, or (3) die. This is how it’s been for nearly 1,500 years. Yet it would appear that a 1,500-year history of darkness, death, and destruction in the name of Allah is not enough evidence for the West to grasp what drives the enemy we’re facing.
So desperate are we to avoid facing the awful truth that a seemingly endless stream of insane things are spewed out on a near daily basis to convince us that the truth is anything but what it is. Case in point: our government asserting that recent terror attacks are a sign we are winning the war against ISIS.
(And as an aside, the war isn’t, or at least shouldn’t be, specifically against ISIS any more than their war against us is against people who live in certain ZIP codes. ISIS, Hezb’allah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood, and on and on all represent the same thing: Islam.)
We’re not winning the war against Islamic totalitarianism. We’re losing. Willfully, it seems. Our commitment to losing cuts across a broad spectrum, from political elites to academics to the media.
As to the last group’s coverage of the terror attack in Nice, they could have reported on how ISIS and other Islamic terror organizations urge Muslims to use vehicles to kill, a reality Israelis have been coping with for a long time. (Palestinians routinely run over Jews with cars while ISIS reminds them to “[r]emember that our war with the Jews is a war between belief and unbelief, so continue your battle and use all permissible means of fighting them – stab them, run them over with cars[.]”)
MEMRI further reported on the jihadist magazine, Inspire, and its detailed directions for how Muslims should use vehicles to maim and murder, excerpting from an article in the magazine titled “The Ultimate Mowing Machine”…
