The apologists of Islamic terrorism, and their flawed arguments
Thursday, October 10, 2019
Every time a terror attack is carried out by Islamic groups, we see a
flurry of commentators rushing to say “this has got nothing to do with
Every time they take extra measures to explain why religion
must not be blamed, and almost every time they are wrong. Let’s see some of the recent smokescreens that were created by the apologists for Islamic terrorism:
Orlando nightclub shooting:it wasn’t hatred for gays. It was the because of easy availability of guns.
This argument totally ignores the fact that in 10 Muslim countries,
there is a death penalty for Homosexuality. Guess it was the gun that
wrote their constitutions too! Maybe in Saudi Arabia they stone women
who commit adultery because of easy availability of stones? And ISIS
throws gays off buildings in Syria because there is gravity in Raqqa!
Charlie Hebdo massacre: Those cartoons were provocative! It was the ISIS. There are just 0.1% extremists among all Muslims!
argument again ignores the fact that there is death penalty for
blasphemy and insulting the Prophet in 10 Islamic countries. Either
their constitutions have been written by ISIS or the moderates there
aren’t moderate enough. Or even they have misinterpreted the book.
you draw a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad in Islamic Republic of Pakistan,
the state will kill you. In Non-Islamic Republics like France, ISIS
will kill you. Yet leaders of these Islamic republics condemn ISIS
with platitudes like ‘Islam means peace’ and 5:32 ‘Killing one man is like
killing the whole humanity’.
the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and
strive upon earth [to cause] 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.
Difference is – Islamic republics kill
within their boundaries, while the ISIS is more amorphous. ISIS does it
across the globe. At best, they should be condemning ISIS for not
respecting international borders.
