Once again the filthy heresy of Islam has been visited upon the world by a “self-styled” sheik named Man Haron Monis. Born Manteghi Bourjerdi, the 49-year-old extremist left Iran for Australia in 1996 and adopted various names before settling on Sheik Haron Monis. Already well-known to police, Monis was out on bail until February of 2015 for more than 40 sexual offenses. A profile of this animal notes that he claimed to be an expert specializing in astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic.
Monis sent “grossly offensive” hate letters to the families of Australian soldiers killed by insurgents in Afghanistan and was last November accused of being an accessory to murder of his ex-wife after her body was found badly burned with multiple stab wounds.
Thankfully, his demented life came to an end after a gunfight lasting less than two minutes with Sydney police.
Robert Spencer describes the Sydney chocolate shop siege as a possible fulfillment of the threat issued by Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani in a September video:
“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European—especially the spiteful and filthy French—or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him in any manner or way however it may be."
“Do not ask for anyone’s advice and do not seek anyone’s verdict. Kill the disbeliever whether he is civilian or military, for they have the same ruling. Both of them are disbelievers. Both of them are considered to be waging war [the civilian by belonging to a state waging war against the Muslims]. Both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy, for blood does not become illegal or legal to spill by the clothes being worn.”
Spencer believes the “siege is a harbinger of things to come not only in Australia, but in Western Europe, Britain, Canada and the United States where we see “Islamic jihadists taking hostages in the West as they have for so long in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.”
Daniel Greenfield reminds us, “Islam has a history of over a thousand years of continuously dehumanizing non-Muslims and identifying peace and their enslavement as one and the same. It is impossible to live in peace with Muslims who think that there can be no peace as long as non-Muslims continue to live independent lives.”
“In the Muslim worldview, war happens because non-Muslims exist. War is caused by the infidel, the disbeliever and the Muslim hypocrite who does not truly commit to the practice of Islam. The Jihad purifies the world of non-Muslims; it eradicates the ‘moderate’ Muslims who have been compromised by Western culture. It is a war of extermination against the un-Islamic.”
We are preached to by leaders with scant knowledge of Muslim scripture that the Islamic State’s hateful ideology has nothing to do with Islam. They espouse the laughable notion that Islam is the religion of peace.
No, Islam is not the religion of peace. These sub-humans’ bloodthirsty interpretations of their pedophile prophet’s scriptures are far too lethal.
Tom Holland opines, “It is not enough to engage with the jihadis solely on the battlefield. They must be defeated as well in mosques, and libraries, and seminar rooms. This is a battle that, in the long run, can only be won by theologians.”
He believes “fighters for the Islamic State might well point out that the Qur’an describes angels decapitating unbelievers with the aim of spreading terror; that the first Muslims are described as harvesting heads on the battlefield of Badr; that Muhammad himself is said to have owned a sword that can be translated as ‘Cleaver of Vertebrae’”.
“It is not enough, within such a context, merely to insist that Islam is a religion of peace, and leave it at that. Muslim scholars have an urgent responsibility to demonstrate in the most painstaking detail exactly where and why the jihadis are wrong. Just as Christian intellectuals, in the wake of the Holocaust, were obliged to confront the evil purposes to which the New Testament had been put, and recalibrate their understanding of it on a theological level, so do their Muslim counterparts today need to redeem their own scriptures from the taint of savagery that is doing so much to blacken the image of their religion.”
With the release of Dianne Feinstein’s so called “torture report” just days ago, one must ask if it has already spawned other acts of violence such as the Sydney siege that may bring harm to Americans abroad.
Senator Feinstein please call your office.
