Islam has nothing to worry about, it's still the champion of terror by far.............
In light of the fact that the man responsible for two heinousacts of terrorism which have thus far resulted in the deaths of 87 people is a native born, non-Muslim Norwegian,John Tabin asks if large segments of the media (including bloggers likehim and me) were wrong to speculate that this was an act of Islamicradicals.
For his part, Tabin plans to answer that question in depth at alater date. So allow me to give my thoughts. I would like to makethe case that it was not at all unreasonable to speculate thatMuslims were involved in this attack.
First, it was only a year ago that Norwegian authoritiesthwarted an al Qaeda plot to attack Norway.
Second, today's attacks were nearly simultaneous. An al Qaedacalling card.
Third, it was only last week that that Norwegian authoritiesindicted Mullah Krekar , founder of the Ansar al-Islam, for threatsagainst Norwegian politicians.
Fourth, a Muslim organization called Ansar al-Jihad al-Alamiclaimed responsibility for the attack. This is the most notablepoint of all. I mean what kind of people brag about murderinginnocent civilians they did not kill?
Finally, consider all the acts of terrorism which have occurredsince September 11, 2001 - Bali, Madrid, London, Mumbai, Fort Hoodnot to mention all those suicide bombings in Israel. All ofthose attacks were carried out by Muslim entities. Frankly, itwould have been irresponsible to discount the possibility of yetanother Muslim terrorist attack.
So is Anders Behring Breivik a diabolically clever lone wolf ordid he have help from others? While those questions must beanswered, like Timothy McVeigh, Breivik is the exception thatproves the rule. But unlike McVeigh, Breivik will not be executedfor deliberate and wanton mass murder.
The long and short of it is that when the next terrorist attackis carried out whether it be next week, next month or next year,the people and the organizations at the top of my suspect list willbe Muslim.
As the adage goes, "Not all Muslims are terrorists but nearlyall terrorists are Muslim."
