Today in the Jihad

Four items on the jihad front today.

First, from Michelle Malkin. It is becoming more and more obvious what the terror trials in New York will look like, even beyond the $100 million price tag. Jihadists who are granted the rights of US civilians will use these undeserved privileges to further the cause and misinformation of jihad.

How do we know?

Well, a good place to start would be to check in on the trial of Aafia Siddiqui now taking place in, you guessed it, New York City. It ain't pretty.

Second, from Jihad Watch, is it really difficult to figure out why we are having a hard time dealing with the problem of terrorism when officials within the departments created to protect us from Islamic violence refuse to even acknowledge a link between Islam and blowing things up?

Detectives later searched Woodson’s room at the Red Mill Inn on Route 22 and found weapons including a .308-caliber semi-automatic assault rifle with a defaced serial number, a grenade launcher, hundreds .50-caliber and .308-caliber rounds, a police scanner, and the maps of a U.S. military installation and an out-of-state civilian community, Forrest said. Woodson, who is a Navy veteran, had been staying at the hotel since last week.

Investigators also found Middle Eastern red and white traditional headdress, Forrest said.
How long did it take before officials were willing to call the Fort Hood massacre an act of Islamic terrorism? And that particular purveyor of Islam shouted "Allah Akbar" when emptying his weapons into the bodies of innocents.

Items three and four are the pedestrian killings of Muslims in the Mideast. By the way, Muslims are by far the most frequent victims of jihadist violence.

Oh well, one man's terrorism is but another man's proselytizing.

Nothing to see here, move along.

One structural problem with Islam is the 'authentic' law that the penalty for leaving Islam is death. This law has been generally enforced for 1400 years.

One basic problem here is that if any group disagrees with the rest on any basic interpretation of the Koran, then they have left the 'religion'. This is a large part of the reason why Shitte and Sunni have been unable to repair their differences since 690AD. This 'law' causes much instability within Islam, a culture that already has plenty of anger and instability.

You are correct, that is one of the many instabilities within Islam.

There are countless others as well.

Islam commands the death or subjugation of infidels, and the death of apostates. That pretty much leaves all non-Muslims out in the cold, but doesn't provide a lot of security to those within Islam who subscribe to a varying orthodoxy.

A recent study shows that over ninety percent of the victims of the jihad are other Muslims. If they can even grudgingly accept those astounding numbers on their own ranks without confronting Islam's radicalization, how can we be surprised that Islam is at war with infidels and apostates all over the globe?
