Whenever terror strikes, in Istanbul, one a Russian plane above the Sinai or in the streets of Paris you can count the minutes until someone mentions the obvious, “most Muslims in the world are good, honest and hardworking people, they have nothing to do with this kind of behavior and they certainly do not support it”. Well, thats is somewhat true, not completely true.
Here is a terrifying truth about your Muslim neighbor, the guy that owns that nice Lebanese restaurant and the nice shy Muslim woman who you see in when you walk your dog, almost all traditional Muslims have some support for the ideas of the most radical, militant and fanatical terrorists out there.
This might sound pretty harsh, and it is – and it should make you think about it for a moment. This is not a guess or an invention, it i s based on annual research and polls presented to Muslims around the world – and especially ones in the Western part of it, and in all of them you will be shocked to find that, for example, Muslims in the UK strongly believe that blasphemy should be punished, or that directly insulting the prophet should be punishable, and by punishable they do not mean someone writing you a ticket.
So while Muslims all over the world might shake their heads and sigh over the Paris attacks, they will not truly condemn the “Charlie Hebdo” massacre because “why should they paint hurtful images of the prophet to begin with?”, and that is exactly the kind of connection many traditional and Western Muslims have with the most radical murderers out there.
An easy way to spot this is the answer “Yes, but…”, notice Muslims defend terror, murder and even calls for genocide by saying “yes, but…”
The Americans brought this on themselves by invading Iraq.
The Danish papers should not have published those images.
The French should not have bombed those villages in Syria.
The Jewish girl should not have been somehow connected to the State of Israel.
There is no “but”, killing innocent people, targeting them, months of planning on how to murder the most coffee drinking Parisians does not have any type or kind of excuse. Try and think of one major terror attack of the recent years that did not directly targeted unsuspecting civilians, its not easy to find one. There is no “struggle” or “fight” there is just a routine killing of anyone who is not liked by the radical Muslims, in Turkey in Sinai and in Paris.
