‘It’s absurd to deny jihadis act in the name of Islam’

Ergas: common sense

Ergas: common sense

Bravo Henry Ergas, who has the guts to speak the truth in the pages of The Australian today.

How long will it take before he is branded a filthy Islamophobic, racist bigot by the apologists and the Left? Probably already happened…

WITH jihadist violence continuing to escalate, the acid test of today’s national security statement will be the actions it proposes.

But no policy can be effective without an honest diagnosis of the problem it is intended to address.

That is why Barack Obama’s statement to last week’s global summit on extremism was so disappointing. Coming from a man who ridicules the proposition that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people”, Obama’s claim that “No religion is responsible for terrorism, people are responsible for terrorism”, combined mendacity with hypocrisy.

The jihadis may indeed be “madmen”, as Obama said; but to deny they act in the name of Islam is as absurd as denying the crusades were fought under the banner of Christianity.

    The ABC will, no doubt, be all over this with apologists for Islam coming out of the wood-work.
    The more they protest, however, the more it will convince people that maybe, just maybe, Islam is not a ‘religion of peace’.
