The SUV: the Sudden Jihadist's Weapon of Mass Destruction

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)

Submitted by Ron (United States), Mar 17, 2006 at 04:33

Did anyone take note of the fact that Al Takfir used a big SUV and not a Geo Metro to go on his Islamic "road trip into temporary insanity?"

His choice was logical, but the reason he didn't kill anyone is because, like millions of drivers who own them, he didn't know how to drive it.

Sorry, but I needed to get a little bit of levity here before delving into a very, serious topic.

Daniel, "Caring" CAIR" buddy, Ibrahim Cooper was quick to chime in that the notion Al Takfir was inspired by the Qu'ran has been discredited by "Islamic scholars who found that the Koran preaches against killing innocent lives."

SURE they do...maybe when they are Muslim lives (although what is going on in Iraq belies that qualification," Blowing up a mosque is such a heroic, and peace-loving action, don't you think, Mr. Cooper?

How many Al Takfir's and John Muhammed's do we have floating around here who are chomping at the bit to practice what they are preached to do -- YES, preached to do by clerics and mullahs worldwide? That is, if they do not read it for themselves in their Holy Book.

Seriously, how can anyone who has read the Koran NOT go off on a killing spree to as a socially-acceptable way (in Muslim society) to express their latent hatred towards themselves first, and others second?

Sudden Jihad syndrome DOES NOT begin with a hatred of anything non-Muslim, or Zionist, or Western, or any of that other doblespeak that is spoonfed to Muslims. No, my friends, it begins with a solid hatred of oneself, nurtured in childhood, and brought to fruition by having to face the harsh realitites of the world.

If religion is the opiate of the masses, as Karl Marx said, then Islam, as practiced by its poster childfren in Palestine, is like crack, ecsatcy, herioin, meth, steroids, and Viagra all rolled into one!

What party-hearty college student wouldn't what that?

Answer: one with a conscience..
