The Islamic Jihad Against Christians Runs Both Wide and DeepTopics: International News, Islam, Understanding Islam
As David French notes at NRO, the Islamists' jihad against non-Muslims - especially Christians - is wide and deep, and there is absolutely no excuse for believing otherwise. One has to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to recognize the fact that the Islamists' objective is clearly the extinction of Christiaity. No where is this more prevalent than in the Middle East, but as the on-going mall massacre in Kenya makes abundantly clear (where the Islamic terrorists made clear that their intent was to only kill non-Muslims) - it's Africa ... and elsewhere ... on almost every soil ... as well. And does anyone really believe this is occurring without wide support from deep within the Muslim population?
As we confront yet another weekend of jihadist violence -- with 81 Christians dead in Pakistan, 142 dead after a jihadist killing spree in Nigeria, and 62 innocents slaughtered (now 68) in a Kenyan shopping mall -- we should remember three key (and infuriating) realities:Continue reading here.
First, the sustained and deadly jihadist violence that has swept the Muslim world cannot be maintained without broad and deep support from the Muslim population. Tens of thousands of jihadists are recruited, trained, and funded from a much larger network of sympathetic Muslim civilians who share the jihadists' goals but not always the same willingness to die. In other words, we are not dealing with some sort of criminal syndicate -- like a mafia -- but instead a full-blown religious movement with millions of adherents, millions more sympathizers, and a larger population that will bend towards the strongest force.
Second, these spectacular, large-scale attacks are supplemented by a grinding, low-level grassroots jihad against religious minorities in the Muslim world. ...
Meanwhile, what we hear from our president on Islamic violence against Christians and other non-Muslims is ... crickets chirping.
