The Islamic Religion of Violence Cannot Be Tolerated

SYRIA — It happened again. More American lives taken by militant Muslim savages. The tragic murder of an innocent American last week in Syria just proves the inherent violence and depravity of the Islamic religion. Let’s be honest. Muslims on the whole cannot be reasoned with. They just don’t have the same respect for human life that we do. We should feel no shame in judging them all with suspicion when we see them in our cities and towns. 

This is horrible. Another bright, young American dead, and for what? Calls for understanding and mutual respect sound great and all, but we have reached the point now where tolerance is no longer an option. 

Some say that the murderer’s self-proclaimed Islamic faith is just a cover for an anti-western worldview. But any sane person knows that the seeds of hatred and intolerance are built right into Islam’s very fabric. 

Others will argue that there are millions of moderate, every-day Muslims just trying to get by, and that we should not judge the whole of Islam based on the actions of a relatively tiny number of extremists. But where are these moderates and why have we not  heard their voices? They should be apologizing and speaking out against this brutality! The truth is, they are all silently complicit in these violent acts, and if you press any Muslim about it, they will say that the victims had it coming. 

If you study the history of Islam, you will see that they have been doing this for hundreds of years, thousands really. This is not a surprise. You can’t solve is with dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the brain. It’s the only thing these people understand.

CHAPEL HILL, NC — It happened again. More Muslim lives taken by the extremist American savages. The tragic murder of three innocent Muslims last week in Chapel Hill, North Carolina just proves the inherent violence and depravity of the Western ethos. Let’s be honest, Westerners on the whole cannot be reasoned with. They just don’t have the same respect for human life that we do. We should feel no shame in judging them all with suspicion when we see them in our cities and towns. 

This is horrible. More bright, young Muslims dead… and for what? Calls for understanding and mutual respect sound great and all, but we have reached the point now where tolerance is no longer an option. 

Some say that the murderer’s self-proclaimed Atheism is just a cover for an Islamaphobic worldview. But any sane person knows that the seeds of hatred and intolerance are built right into America’s very fabric.

Others will argue that there are millions and millions of moderate, every-day Americans just trying to get by, and that we should not judge the whole of the West based on the actions of a relatively tiny number of extremists. But where are these moderates and why have we not heard their voices? They should be apologizing and speaking out against this brutality! The truth is, they are all silently complicit in these violent acts, and if you press any American about it, they will say that the victims had it coming.

If you study the history of the West, you will see that they have been doing this for hundreds of years, thousands really. This is not a surprise. You can’t solve it with a dialogue. You can’t solve it with a summit. You solve it with a bullet to the brain. It’s the only thing these people understand.
