Christchurch Attack – No excuses – some explanations?

Source: The Religion of Peace

It has been a while since I posted here on Aussie Madness, but the events of yesterday have prompted me to comment.

Before going on, I must make clear that the attack on two mosques in Christchurch must be condemned on all levels without reservation. It was a shocking act of violence for which there can never be any justification or excuse. Innocent victims mown down by an indiscriminate gunman whilst streaming the whole thing to the internet takes terrorism to a new level of horror.

Whilst we can never, repeat NEVER, excuse or justify such acts, we can, and should, at least attempt to explain. This is where we see our current crop of politicians in cowardly avoidance of the painful truth of the situation, instead relying on weasel words about gun control and platitudes about the attack being “not what New Zealand is about”.

Not one politician has had the courage to state the obvious, namely that this kind of attack is an inevitable response to the many, many atrocities carried out over centuries by a supremacist, violent ideology – Islam.

To put this into context, as of today, since 9/11 there have been nearly 35,000 terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Islam. There is simply no compromise with Islam – conversion, submission or death are the only options available.

Since the birth of the religion and political ideology of Islam in the 7th century, millions have perished at its hands. Churches all over the world have been attacked and worshippers killed, since Islam is explicitly at war with Christianity. Here is a list of attacks on Christians by Muslims just in the two and a half months since the start of the year (source):

Date Country City Killed Injured Description
2019.03.11 Nigeria Anguwan Gamu 46 0 A pastor and his wife are among forty-six villagers massacred by Fulani terrorists.
2019.03.10 Nigeria Shuwa 0 1 A girl is injured when two suicide bombers detonate prematurely during an attempt to kill church-goers.
2019.02.26 Nigeria Maro 32 0 Thirty-two people are killed in a targeted attack on a Christian community.
2019.02.15 Burkina Faso Cinkansé 1 0 A Catholic missionary is shot to death by Muslim radicals.
2019.02.10 Nigeria Angwan Barde 10 0 An unborn child is among ten Catholics massacred by Muslim militants.
2019.01.27 Philippines Jolo 27 111 Twenty-seven worshippers at a Catholic church are laid out by Muslim bombers.
2019.01.26 Germany Salzgitter-Lebenstedt 1 0 The shooting by a Syrian Muslim of an Iraqi Christian is said to be motivated by religious differences.
2019.01.20 CAR Zaoro Sangou 13 0 A pastor is among a dozen killed during Fulani violence.
2019.01.05 Egypt Nasr City 1 2 A bomb left outside a church kills a police officer.

In total, 131 Christians killed just since 1 January in the name of Islam, and the list goes on for pages and pages and pages and pages.

On our own soil, we can look at events like the rampage of Man Haron Monis in the Lindt Cafe, or the brutal cold-blooded murder of Curtis Cheng. If you look at the list of Australian terror attacks or plots, the overwhelming majority are of Islamic origin. The list would be extremely short without Islam to stack it. Other Western countries have suffered in similar ways, such as the US (9/11 and many others), the UK and France (Bataclan, Charlie Hebdo etc).

Given this, we really shouldn’t be surprised that some nut jobs will take matters into their own hands and carry out acts of retaliation. I repeat, there is never justification for retaliation of this kind, but it doesn’t take much for a disturbed individual to believe that the unremitting campaign of violence carried out by Islam over the past 1400 years justifies an attack in response. The individual’s thinking follows that if Islam is at war with the Dar al Harb, why aren’t we at war with Islam?

What do you think, readers? Let me know in the comments.

    The Islamic apologists would have us forget the 1400 years, that Islam has waged War against anyone not a Muslim or of the ‘wrong’ type of Muslim.
    The simple fact is that their Holy Book is a documented declaration of war. So why do we continue to try and ignore this basic fact? Could it be the US lead war machine that produces arms that feed these never ending conflicts is somehow stoking the fires?
    When people of the Islamic doctrine fight each other, destroy their own country in the name of their God, and wag a never ending war on the West, at some point people will push back. To be honest I’m surprised it’s taken this long.


  2. Chrissie says:

    the victims were muslims, the perpetrators did not act in the name of the christians, or did they? So it is not a religious motivated act. Am I right?


  3. Russell Chapman says:

    Politicians have enabled this – if the Christchurch murderer had been able to talk about his resentments and anger, he could have been debated – the whole “not all Muslims” thing, “killing of innocents not the answer to terrorism” etc and maybe he would go and fight jihadists instead of a peaceful community. But they always say “mental health issues” and “nothing to do with Islam”, so he is forced underground where his anger grows unchecked.
    While his actions were vile, I was not surprised how quickly western governments labelled the actions in Christchurch and in London as terrorism, while they still equivocate about the actions of Islamic terrorists.
