The Warning From Toulouse
There are no words which can describe or justify on any kind of human level what Mohammed Merah did in Toulouse, France earlier this week. None.
Merah is the Islamic Jihadist who murdered three French soldiers, a Rabbi and three Jewish children in cold blood. Words like inhuman, barbaric, sick, evil, demented, delusional, deranged, psychopathic and horrific all come to mind but they and others like them cannot begin to provide a picture of just how monstrous the murders really were in human terms and it is useless to try and do so. Suffice it to say that any decent human being would be mortified by the murders and that anyone who isn't mortified or who tries to justify or rationalize them is not a decent human being, is racist and anti-Semitic and most definitely needs to have his or her head examined. This person is also most likely either an Islamist (a follower of Islam) or an apologist for Islam.
One other word comes to mind too. That word is warning.
Merah acted in the name of Islam and felt that the murders were justified by Islamic teachings and exhortations. He was of course correct, because they were and they are. France, and Europe, are full of Islamic Jihadists just like Merah, full of Islamic Jihadists with the same attitude, mentality and beliefs. They are already a serious threat to the safety, security and freedom of Europe's citizens (especially Jews and Christians) and are becoming more of a threat every day. The fact that Merah felt brazen enough to commit the murders in the first place and in broad daylight in the second is very telling. Islam is fundamentally changing the nature and character of European countries and trying to turn them into Islamic states governed by Islamic law (Sharia) and it is foot soldiers like Merah who are intimidating ordinary citizens into acquiescing. The murders were a warning alright...a warning that Islam will continue to advance at the expense of the continent's Judeo-Christian heritage and Western way of life, until it is stopped or until it reigns supreme, a warning that it will bring to twenty-first century Europe the same things it has brought everywhere else it has ever appeared...violence, hatred, destruction, misogyny and death.
Freedom and democracy are becoming a thing of the past in Europe and it is Islamic Jihadists like Merah who are pulling the trigger. It is no stretch of the imagination to say that the face of Europe is being changed by Islam and that it could very well become entirely Islamic at the hands of Islam and its soldiers.
The same thing is happening in North America. Islam has made deep and serious inroads in the United States and Canada. Just like Europe, the United States and Canada are full of Islamic Jihadists more than willing to commit murder and mayhem. Terrorist acts by Islamic Jihadists are becoming commonplace and there are frequent demands by Islamists to accommodate Islam and institutionalize its teachings and requirements, Sharia among them. There are many areas in the United States and Canada where Islam predominates and American and Canadian laws, institutions and values are being eroded or eliminated in both countries, including freedom of speech and freedom of expression. The situation is dire and it is only going to get worse until Americans and Canadians recognize its severity and take meaningful steps to preserve and protect their way of life.
That is what Merah was really telling Europeans, Americans, Canadians and other Westerners. There is more, much more, to come unless you until you either stop us or until we conquer you and force you to submit to Islam. Merah gave us a warning from Islamic Jihadists, Islamists and Islam's apologists. Until we heed it and take meaningful steps to keep Islam from taking over our lives and turning us into dhimmis under the thumb of Islamic law, more and more murders will take place, more and more blood will be shed and more and more of our freedoms will be eroded and eliminated.
Let's hope he provided a wake-up call to everyone. His victims and Islam's victims will all have died in vain if he didn't.
