Last week Edward Archer shot Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett in his police cruiser and Hartnett returned fire. Both men were injured and Archer was subsequently captured. He told investigators the reason he shot the police officer was that the police do not adhere to Islamic law. Archer was a devout Muslim and even went to Saudi Arabia to solidify his faith. A day or so later, newly-elected Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney declared Archer was not a Muslim, because Muslims do not act that way. Well it appears to me that some of them do act that way.
Last week groups of Muslim men sexually assaulted hundreds of women in Germany, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and Austria. Assaults ranged from stripping off women’s clothing and groping them to outright rapes by multiple attackers. There were thousands of rapes in Sweden in 2013 by Muslim men, most of them going unreported.
The stories are mostly ignored by news organizations and flat out denied or covered up by government officials. While government officials may not recognize the problem with Islamists, their victims certainly do.
A mostly unknown fact in western civilization is that abuse of women is sanctioned by Islamic law. There is currently a jihad rape fatwa issued by a Muslim cleric in Syria and another by a cleric in Saudi Arabia. In fact, look at what they teach in college. “If a woman gets raped walking in public alone, then she, herself is at fault! She is only seducing men by her presence! She should have stayed home like a Muslim woman!” -- Dr. Abd Al-Aziz Fawzan, Professor of Islamic Law, Saudi Arabia
When Nidal Hasan shot people at Fort Hood in 2009 killing 13 and wounding over two dozen more, the Obama administration classified the act as workplace violence, even though Hasan was yelling Allah Akbar as he shot. The Muslim law-breakers almost always tell you who they are. Why do our left-leaning politicians not take the word of these jihadists? All left-leaning politicians cannot be stupid, so there must be some other reason.
It appears that 700 years ago the world population knew how to recognize who Muslims really were much better than the leftist politicians of today. Marco Polo said, “The law which their prophet Mohamed has given to muslims is that any harm done to any one who does not accept their law and any appropriation of his goods, is no sin at all.”
My friends, face the facts. Our newspapers, news outlets and even more so our Democrat leaders are downplaying who the Muslims are. They call us Islamophobes for telling the truth. Name calling has become their favorite tactic to stop debate.
There are Muslims willing to live in peace. There is also a jihadist element among the Muslims and that fact is undeniable. There are a few Christians in every denomination that create atrocious acts, but seldom in the name of their religion. Our politicians go out of the way to state these criminals are Christian, knowing their acts had nothing to do with their faith. Just the opposite with Muslims.
Do I get to decide my faith? Do the politicians decide for me? Who decides if you are a Muslim? Oprah Winfrey told us several years ago, “When people tell you who they are, believe them.” I do.
