He was a devout Muslim

Reader comment on item: But He Was Good to His Mother

Dear Dr Pipes,

In the UK press at least, Muslim homicide bombers/terrorists are almost always described by their families as 'devout Muslims', no doubt in an attempt to convince us that if a Muslim is devout, he cannot be violent. Wake up and read the koran and the hadiths: the more 'devout' a Muslim, the more likely he is to obey scripture and perpetrate violence against the 'infidel'.

Our politicians and intelligensia are guilty of betraying whole populations and future generations in their refusal to take a moral stand against Islam, thus intimidating the rest of us into the silence of 'dhimmitude' through fear of political incorrectness.
