Toronto Sun: “Only A Fool Believes There Is No Link Between Islam And Terrorism”
We have a lot of foolish politicians leading the West. I guess “Allah” managed to deceive them, too …

“Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don’t have brains enough to be honest” – Benjamin Franklin
By Michael Coren, Toronto Sun – “Only a bigot believes that all Muslims are terrorists, but only a fool believes there is no link between Islam and terrorism.
Yet as still another innocent person is beheaded and paraded before the world, there are two odious coalitions that refuse the embrace or admit the truth.
The first is in some ways easier to deal with. This dark gang includes Islamic fundamentalists, anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic fanatics, haters of the west and in particular the United States and hard left extremists who believe all violence and instability aids their cause.
The second is more complex and nuanced. This alliance involves the cowardly, the absurdly naive, the usefully stupid, the relativist deniers and those who due to good will or a total lack of historical consciousness believe all religions are the same and if only everybody had high speed Internet and a full belly we could all dance together into the sunset.

They were a product of Islamic brutality, not its cause.
From the Crusades we blame imperialism, even though the major empire o f the Islamic world was Turkish and Muslim; we blame Israel; we blame George Bush; we blame everyone and everything other than the genuine article.

Flashback: Muslim Columnist: We Must Be Honest About The Qur’an, ‘Muslims Are Caught In A Conundrum’ – “In the aftermath of Islamic jihadis — the Boko Haram — enslaving Christian school girls in Nigeria, the Muslim intelligentsia, instead of doing some serious introspection, has chosen to exercise damage control. Columns by my co-religionists have appeared in newspapers ranging from the Toronto Star to The Independent in London and on CNN.com, where they avoid any reference to Sharia laws that permit Muslims to take non-Muslim female prisoners of war as sex slaves. The fact is Muslim armies throughout history have been permitted under Islamic law to make sex slaves of non-Muslim prisoners… But courage to face facts is rare among many Muslims today. I asked the writers of the Toronto Star and The Independent columns why they had not addressed the passages of the Qur’an that permit Muslims to take slaves. They did not answer.” Read more.
