The radicalization of the Muslim faith has been an increasingly difficult subject to understand in recent years, due in part the to ignorance promoted by the Obama administration.
The former President spent much of his lame duck second term finding new and oblivious ways to avoid using the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism”, even as the threat of Jihad was becoming an all-too familiar reality for much of the civilized world.
Even in the face of Omar Mateen’s vicious attack on the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in which the attacker himself called 9-1-1 to pledge his allegiance to ISIL and recite Islamic propaganda for the terrified phone bank operator, Barack Hussein Obama refused to acknowledge the very deep hatred for all other religions that is held by these Islamic jihadists.
Now, in the wake of an increase of attacks across Europe, ISIS and their militant religious cohorts are openly admitting that their holy war is not about stymying democracy or freedom, but rather, it is their intention to eliminate, eradicate, and otherwise end the “worshipers of the Cross”.
Take, for example, the brutal murder of an elderly Jewish woman in Paris.
“On Tuesday morning, Sarah Halimi, a 66-year-old Orthodox Jewish woman living in Paris’ Jewish community, was stabbed in her bed and then pushed out of the window of the third-story apartment where she fell to her death. The alleged attacker, a 27-year-old Muslim, reportedly yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he shoved Halimi out the window, according to Halimi’s neighbors.
“During the subsequent police investigation, the suspect reportedly asserted that the Koran had commanded him to murder her.”
“On Thursday, Halimi, a trained physician, was buried at the Har Hamenuhot cemetery in Jerusalem.”
While we enjoy our freedom of religion in America, and in much of the first world, it is becoming impossible to ignore the very real possibility that Islam is evolving. No longer considered “the religion of peace”, this disturbing new trend of oppression and hatred has become the face of the ancient faith.
