Anything but jihad

Did you know that a “truck attack” occurred in Nice, France, and that the driver had recently been convicted of “road rage”?  Apparently we are to believe that an angry guy got in his truck and took out his frustration on hordes of innocent people.  And while certain facts may be true (yes, the guy was angry, and yes, he drove a truck to commit his evil deed), they are not the underlying truth.  And it is this underlying truth the West is so desperate to avoid.

The underlying truth is that Islam is totalitarianism that mandates the destruction of all things not Islamic as written in the Quran, the Sunnah, and the Hadith.

That’s pretty much it.  It’s all you need to know.  From this basic premise of world domination, all else flows.  It explains the most heinous acts of violence perpetuated by Islamic terrorists, the most subtle form of creeping sharia that advances the caliphate by stealth means and everything in between.

Islam demands that Islam rule over everyone.  And for Islam to rule, non-believers are given three choices: (1) convert, (2) pay the jizya tax and live as second-class citizens, or (3) die.  This is how it’s been for nearly 1,500 years.  Yet it would appear that a 1,500-year history of darkness, death, and destruction in the name of Allah is not enough evidence for the West to grasp what drives the enemy we’re facing.

So desperate are we to avoid facing the awful truth that a seemingly endless stream of insane things are spewed out on a near daily basis to convince us that the truth is anything but what it is.  Case in point: our government asserting that recent terror attacks are a sign we are winning the war against ISIS.

(And as an aside, the war isn’t, or at least shouldn’t be, specifically against ISIS any more than their war against us is against people who live in certain ZIP codes.  ISIS, Hezb’allah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Muslim Brotherhood, and on and on all represent the same thing: Islam.)

We’re not winning the war against Islamic totalitarianism.  We’re losing.  Willfully, it seems.  Our commitment to losing cuts across a broad spectrum, from political elites to academics to the media.

As to the last group’s coverage of the terror attack in Nice, they could have reported on how ISIS and other Islamic terror organizations urge Muslims to use vehicles to kill, a reality Israelis have been coping with for a long time.  (Palestinians routinely run over Jews with cars while ISIS reminds them to “[r]emember that our war with the Jews is a war between belief and unbelief, so continue your battle and use all permissible means of fighting them – stab them, run them over with cars[.]”)

MEMRI further reported on the jihadist magazine, Inspire, and its detailed directions for how Muslims should use vehicles to maim and murder, excerpting from an article in the magazine titled “The Ultimate Mowing Machine” (excerpt reprinted below):

The idea is to use a pickup truck as a mowing machine, not to mow grass but mow down the enemies of Allah. You would need a 4WD pickup truck. The stronger the better. You would then need to weld on steel blades on the front end of the truck. These could be a set of butcher blades or thick sheets of steel. They do not need to be extra sharp because with the speed of the truck at the time of impact, even a blunter edge would slice through bone very easily. You may raise the level of the blades as high as the headlights. That would make the blades strike your targets at the torso level or higher.

Pick your location and timing carefully. Go for the most crow[d]ed locations. Narrower spots are also better because it gives less chance for the people to run away. Avoid locations where other vehicles may intercept you.

To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run. Keep in mind that as soon as people realize what you are up to, they would scatter and run in every direction looking for cover. They would look for areas where the vehicle cannot reach them. Therefore, it is important to study your path of operation before hand. The ideal location is a place where there are a maximum number of pedestrians and the least number of vehicles. In fact if you can get through to ‘pedestrian only’ locations that exist in some downtown (city center) areas, that would be fabulous. There are some places that are closed down for vehicles at certain times due to the swarms of people. If you have access to firearms, carry them with you so that you may use them to finish off your work if your vehicle gets grounded during the attack.

After such an attack, we believe it would be very difficult to get away safely and without being recognized. Hence, it should be considered a martyrdom operation. It's a one-way road. You keep on fighting until you achieve martyrdom. You start out your day in this world, and by the end of it, you are with Allah. This idea could be implemented in countries like Israel, the U.S., Britain, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Denmark, Holland and other countries where the government and public sentiment is in support of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, the American invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq or countries that had a prominent role in the defamation of Muhammed... "

So let’s speak the truth.  The terror attack in Nice was not road rage perpetrated by a garden-variety criminal.  It was jihad.  It was Islamic terror.  It was evil sanctioned by Allah and the teachings of Mohammed.

And let’s not make a big issue of the fact that the jihadist’s name was not on any terror watch list (not that these lists are even very effective, but that’s a topic for another day).  The watch list is anyone and everyone who embrace the teachings of the Quran.
