Washington Post: Muslims in Orlando afraid, some have been yelled at
Monday, June 20, 2016
“In the Fort, as many call this old Army post, some Muslims last week
prayed in an unmarked building, while others worshiped at another
nearby mosque where some recent passersby yelled ‘Murderers!’ Sheriff’s
and police cars have been patrolling outside both.”
That’s a shame.
Those passersby are boorish. But what of the fact that the Islamic
Center of Fort Pierce has now turned out two murderous jihad terrorists?
Are we to turn a blind eye to that fact because examining it would be
“Islamophobic”? And some boors yelling at people hardly seems
significant when compared to 49 people murdered and 53 injured — unless,
of course, you’re a Washington Post reporter.
This piece is consistent with the mainstream media’s usual practice
of portraying Muslims as the victims of every jihad terror attack. Where
is the Washington Post’s story about how the relatives of those killed
in the jihad attack are faring? The usual deceptions are in play here. Local Muslim activist Victor
Begg says: “Whoever kills a person, it is as if he has killed all of
humankind,” and the Post tells us he was “quoting the Koran.” Indeed he
was. Here is the full passage:
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel
that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption in the
land — it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one —
it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had
certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them,
after that, throughout the land, were transgressors. (5:32) .
What’s more, it is followed by 5:33, which specifies the punishment for
those who make war against Allah and his messenger: “Indeed, the penalty
for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon
earth corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that
their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be
exiled from the land.
That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for
them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.”
There is less to this than Western leaders and Islamic apologists claim.“After Orlando, some American Muslims are anxious about what comes next,” by Mary Jordan and Abigail Hauslohner, Washington Post, June 18, 2016:
