To the Mayor of Manchester: The Suicide Bomber Was a Muslim

Michael Brown,

In the aftermath of the horrific suicide bombing, the mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, wanted to make one thing perfectly clear. The man who blew himself was a terrorist, not a Muslim. To quote him directly, “The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.”

Mr. Burnham, with all respect to the pain your community is experiencing, and with full recognition of your desire to unite your people, you are terribly wrong. Dead wrong. The suicide bomber was a terrorist because of his Muslim faith. Until you acknowledge that and until the people of your community acknowledge that, you will not be able to combat the terror.

I imagine that most of the Muslims in Manchester are aghast at this atrocity. And I imagine most of them look at this as a perversion of their faith.

But many others do not. For them, this is what Islam does. It fights the unbelievers wherever it finds them, especially at a worldly concert attended by young people. Infidels!

I understand, Mr. Burnham, that your point was that Salman Abedi was not a true Muslim, since true Muslims do not commit such acts.

In that case, neither Osama bin Laden nor any members of Al-Qaeda were (or are) true Muslims.

And neither Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder of ISIS, who holds a Ph.D. in Quranic Studies from Iraq’s Saddam University for Islamic Studies, nor any members of ISIS are true Muslims.

And no member of the Taliban or Hamas (which stands for the “Islamic Resistance Movement”) or Hezbollah (“The Party of Allah”) or the Muslim Brotherhood are true Muslims.

And it’s just a coincidence that during the month of Ramadan, Islamic terrorist attacks increase dramatically around the world. (The bloodshed has already begun, with more than 25 Coptic Christians, including children, slaughtered on the first day of Ramadan.)

And it’s just a coincidence that Abedi allegedly memorized the Quran as a boy and would chant his Islamic prayers loudly in the street.

And it’s just a coincidence that numerous texts in the Quran are interpreted by millions of Muslims as justification for terrorist attacks.

And it’s just a coincidence that these same texts have been used by Muslims for centuries as a theological basis for acts of violence.

And it’s just a coincidence that suicide bombings between rival Muslim groups take place on a regular basis in mosques and in markets and at funerals.

And it’s just a coincidence that the terrorists responsible for 9-11 and Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon bombing and San Bernardino and Orlando and Nice, France and Brussels, Belgium, and London, England, and Madrid, Spain, and Beslan, Russia (the list is almost endless) were all Muslims.

Focusing on England, it’s just a coincidence that BBC reports that, “Approximately 850 people from the UK have travelled to support or fight for jihadist organisations in Syria and Iraq, say the British authorities.” Need I say that all 850 were Muslims?

And Mr. Mayor, you must be aware that, “Manchester has long been a hotbed of Islamic extremism, with dozens or more Muslim-born radicals and converts known to have gone to fight for Islamic State and, security officials fear, in some cases secretly returned to continue their jihad in Britain.”

Is this just a coincidence?

Here in America, I guess it was just a coincidence that Nidal Malik Hasan, the 2009 Fort Hood shooter, calls himself a “Soldier of Allah” and was radicalized by the Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, (We killed al-Awlaki via drone attack in Yemen in 2011).

And it was just a coincidence that he shouted out “Allahu Akbar” as he wounded or killed more than 40 unarmed, American military personnel.

And it was just a coincidence that he previously turned a medical lecture into a radical Islamic screed, during which he allegedly justified suicide bombings, reportedly stating that if you didn’t believe in the Koran, “you are condemned to hell. Your head is cut off. You’re set on fire. Burning oil is burned down your throat.”

Pitifully, our government classified this 2009 Islamic terrorist attack as “workplace violence.” And pitifully, many leaders in England want to disassociate the Manchester bombing from Islam.

This is willful ignorance of the highest order. And it is willful ignorance that is deadly.

In contrast, Egypt’s President el-Sisi, himself a devout Muslim, delivered a courageous speech at Cairo’s prestigious Al-Azhar University in 2015, stating, “We need to revolutionize our religion.” He called for “religious discourse that is in keeping with its times,” warning that “the Islamic nation is being torn apart and destroyed” by extremism.

In Poland, Prime Minister Beata Szydlo had some very strong words to say in response to the Manchester bombing. “Where are you headed Europe?” she asked. “Rise from your knees and from your lethargy or you will be crying over your children every day.”

She continued: “If you can’t see this – if you can’t see that terrorism currently has the potential to hurt every country in Europe, and you think that Poland should not defend itself, you are going hand in hand with those who point this weapon against Europe, against all of us.

    The murder WAS a Muslims, he lived the life of a Muslim, he died a Muslim ! This idiot Mayor should be removed from office immediately. Problem is, the UK has allowed the Islamic problem to get totally out of control. Now they are paying the price along with many other nations. Sound familiar America?

    The mayor of Greater Manchester -“The message that I would want to get over – and this is how the vast majority of people feel – this man was a terrorist, not a Muslim.”

    Comedic Video: What Do They Have In Common?

    Indeed, but any death by firearms is blamed on gun owners collectively. And any violence by mentally disturbed Christians is blamed on Christians collectively. But violence by muslims, despite having an extensive history of murder, despite the internet being rife with examples of muslims cutting off heads, drowning, burning alive, and more; Christians and others; it was a terrorist, not a muslim. Bwhahaha.

    It was a muslim. The problem is islam, it is muslims, they are not suitable for the western world. The western world is not capable of understanding them, we cannot soothe the savage beast by buying them off, by giving them food, housing, education, employment, a rose is a rose by any other name, and a pig is a pig. You can put lip stick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

    Rather than wax boring, I’ll leave the following two items. The first is an image, the second excerpts from articles about muslims. Though I excerpted heavily, I’d suggest visiting the article itself.

    Article: What Islam Isn’t: By Dr. Peter Hammond FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, April 21, 2008

    Islam…is a complete system….has religious, legal, political, economic and military components….Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’ When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table…..

    As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone….

    At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

    From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

    They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

    After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

    At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

    From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

    After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

    Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

    *************************

    Separately, I’m not sure of the source for this:

    A radical muslim will cut your head off.
    A moderate muslim will ask the radical to cut your head off.
    A peaceful muslim will sit in silence and watch the moderate ask the radical to cut your head off.

    So the day that the muslim world stands up ENMASSE and denounces its radicals is the day every last one of them ceases to be a threat to humanity.

    Not a single day before.

    Not all muslims are terrorists, but nearly all terrorists are muslim.

    Ayoade is a Muslim name (Nigerian Yoruba Muslim). The victim is a modern Muslim woman who wears a veil but not a burka. And guess why the girl was attacked? She was dressed as a normal business professional. She was not covered up, ignored him and was simply ‘a slut’ and deserved it. Forget that she was a complete stranger. This is why they wear the burka, people. The article doesn’t clarify it yet, but this is the most common reason Muslim women are attacked, assaulted or raped by Muslim men.
