Stop Making Excuses for Islam

What is the number one refrain from the Muslim community?

Before I answer that, if I may go off topic – is there any wonder why our country has become so dysfunctional – so segregated. It seems everyone is part of their own “community,” and as a result pledges allegiance to that community in lieu of the United States. It seems the only ones who don’t, and don’t dare, are whites.

Sorry about that. It’s been a pet peeve of mine.

Anyway, the answer to the question is, “That Is Not Islam.” There is a shooting – that is not Islam – a bombing – not Islam – an honor killing – not Islam – mistreatment of women and homosexuals – not Islam.

And it’s not just Islamic clerics and academics who rush to the aid of their religion. The media does the same. Even before the dust settles, left-wing media and politicians proclaim, “that it is not Islam.”

The incident doesn’t even need to be a tragic event. It could be something relatively minor, like say, a Muslim cab driver refusing a fare due to his religious beliefs. read more
