Take a look at this video posted at the BBC, of failed New York bomber Faisal Shahzad's martyrdom video. Note the extensive Islamic religious character of this terrorist's appeal.
The BBC naturally focuses on Shahzad's claims that his attempt to detonate a bomb in Times Square this past May was motivated by a desire to "avenge" the killing of Muslim leaders in Iraq and Afghanistan. But even Auntie - suffering with cataracts in her old age that inhibit her from seeing Islam as the danger that it is - doesn't leave out what comes next:
"Islam will spread on the whole world and democracy will be defeated... and the world of Allah will be supreme."
There you go. These attacks aren't JUST revenge for the killing of Muslims in the Middle East. That means we CAN'T stop the violence by making concessions to prevent Muslims from hating us, as we have tried to no avail in Afghanistan. Nope; even if we hadn't killed Baitullah Mehsud and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, our friend Faisal would still want to wage jihad against us (jihad? What's that? The Beeb never mentions it, but Faisal does), until democracy is destroyed and "Allah will be supreme".
And by the way, where on earth did he get that idea?
“Tell those who disbelieve that if they cease (from persecution of believers) that which is past will be forgiven them; but if they return (thereto) then the example of the men of old hath already gone (before them, for a warning). And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah.” (Qur'an 8:39)
Curiously, the video cuts away just as Shahzad is about to quote another verse from the Qur'an - sura 3, verse 110: "Ye [Muslims] are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book [Jews and Christians] had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors."
Finally, Shahzad describes himself as a "Muslim soldier"........but of course, we must not say that ourselves, because that would be "Islamophobia".
"Moderate" Muslim spoksemen, as well as our non-Muslim leaders and analysts, will no doubt come out soon enough and say that Faisal Shahzad has twisted and misunderstood the peaceful teachings of their faith - but they will never explain how he managed to get Islam so desperately and unbelievably wrong, and that in itself will be most instructive.
