What have we been doing over there, using water pistols?
Whenever we get criticized in the Arab world for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, people point to civilian causalities. No number of unintentional innocent deaths is acceptable, says the anti-war crowd. So what do the Islamic terrorists on the other side of the fence think?
A new audio message thought to be from Islamic terrorist and Al-Qaeda mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi says that Islam allows the killing of innocent Muslims by Arab terrorists. According to the voice on the tape, believed to be that of Zarqawi, "The shedding of Muslim blood ... is allowed in order to avoid the greater evil of disrupting jihad." This is the kind of thing you expect from Al-Qaeda, but carefully watch the reaction to this news report.
Will we hear from CAIR (the Council on American Islamic Relations) condemning Zarqawi's comments? Will they hold a press conference, and announced that at no time is it acceptable to kill innocent Muslims? What about the Muslim leadership in other countries. Will they publicly speak out against Zarqawi? Yeah ... we'll all hold our breaths.
And that's why Islam has an image problem. If Islam is peace, then why do they tolerate terrorism in their midst? Why is the silence so deafening when heinous acts are committed against innocent people in the name of Allah?
But the media never calls them on it. They're too busy cooking up stories about somebody flushing a Koran down the toilet somewhere.
you can disagree with him but its the truth there a violent people.
