Every week another lad or lass from St. Louis, Toronto or Sydney makes the trip through Turkey to the Islamic State. A reporter dispatched by a local paper to talk to the neighbors scribbles down the same recollections about how nice and normal Jihad Joe or Jihad Jane was.Go read the whole thing. He nails it.
Classmates remember a loud partier or a shy student. Neighbors mention that everything seemed normal until those last few years when he began wearing a robe and she began wearing a burka.
The Somali and Algerian immigrants, the German and American converts, the black burkas and dyed beards, headed into the dying summer to kill Christians and Kurds, Turkmen and Shiites, to behead babies and crucify critics, don’t seem like monsters. They loved their parents. They posed for jokey snapshots on Facebook. They had dreams of becoming biologists or boxers. Until they began killing people, they seemed just like the rest of us.
And with one difference, they were.
The forensic examinations of their lives rarely reveal anything of significance. The extensive digging into the lives of the Boston bombers told us nothing about why they would plant a bomb near a little boy.
The answer lay in the topic that the media carefully avoided. As with the other Muslim terrorists, the meaning of their motives was in the little black book of their religion which commanded them to kill.
The Muhammad quotes say it all - though they go past too fast to read easily.
Then there's this:
Dozens of Christians 'including women and children' are arrested in Saudi Arabia after tip-off to state's Islamist police forceSaudi Arabia is supposedly our ally? I seem to remember most, if not all, of the 9/11 attackers being Saudis...
There's an easy solution - we tell the world that upon the next beheading of an American by ISIS or any other Muslim group, that Islam has 30 days to bring the criminals to public trial in the United States and to eradicate whatever "jihad" they were obeying, or Mecca gets a MIRV warhead, ground zero being the Kaaba stone. They have 30 days to evacuate the people and move out anything they don't want turned into a glass bowl in the desert if they do not obey. Also, if there ever is another such incident, even if the perpetrators of the first one are surrendered and their "jihad" eradicated, another randomly selected Muslim city will be so blessed - with NO warning. Either they evolve into a true religion of peace and tolerance, or they die by attrition a few million at a time.
Every other religion on the planet has evolved past their time of murder in whatever god's name, if they had a violent era - it's about a thousand years overdue for Islam.
