From Where Do Terrorists Draw Their Inspiration?

A Fox News story entitled Islamophobia Worst Form of Terrorism, Islamic Foreign Ministers Say upset me enough to shake me out of my "I'm-too-busy-and-too-tired-to-blog" fog. The very title of the article infuriates me!

The article starts out:

The gravest terrorist threat in the world today is Islamophobia, foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference said this week. “It is something that has assumed xenophobic proportions,” they said.

The ministers described Islamophobia as a deliberate defamation of Islam and discrimination and intolerance against Muslims. They accused Western media of misrepresenting Islam and Muslims worldwide, according to a report in Arab News.

“The linkage of terrorists and extremists with Islam in a generalized manner is unacceptable," the ministers said.

I have fun, family stuff I want to blog about tonight, too, so I'm just gonna make two points and pass this along:
  1. Islamophobia has reached xenophobic proportions? How about ISLAMIC TERRORISM has reached super-xenophobic proportions!?!! This is not limited to the situation in Iraq. These Islamic terrorist attacks are world-wide are not limited to being against the United States (as evil as we are according to the Democrat party). Islamic terrorists are killing people around the world, even other Muslims, who do not bow to sharia law.
  2. Secondly, why are none of these "peaceful Muslims" showing how the "extremists" have twisted the "peaceful" teachings of the Koran? Sure, they quote these "peaceful verses", but they fail to explain how the Islamic principle of abrogation means that these verses are superseded by verses commanding jihad. Plain and simple...Islam teaches the very things terrorists worldwide are doing. How much longer must we keep closing our eyes to this fact simply to remain politically correct?
