The UNC Terrorist and His Useful Idiots
Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer goes into detail on UNC terrorist Mohammed Taheri-azar,why the media and government can't seem to cope with reality, and where Taheri gets his motive.
The man who hit nine people with a sport utility vehicle on the University of North Carolina's Chapel Hill campus wrote a letter to a television reporter saying he read the Quran's 114 chapters 15 times and found that the Muslim holy book justified the attack.
''I did not act out of hatred for Americans, but out of love for Allah instead,'' Mohammed Taheri-azar, 22, wrote in a letter to Amber Rupinta dated March 10 posted on WTVD's Web site.
Two things are clear, Taheri tried to kill as many people as possible (by his own admission) and he did it in the name of Allah (also by his admission). Yet the media avoids words like Jihad, Muslim, Islam, and especially terrorism as if they were illeagal. Spencer notes how there just seem to be a lot of Muslims who don't understand that "Islam means peace" canard;
We have the leading American Muslim spokesmen insisting that, in effect, Taheri-azar was completely misreading what is a book of peace and benevolence and tolerance.
There are just too many misunderstanders of Islam, as I have referred to them many times here, all over the world for this position to be maintained. Yet three and a half years after Muhammad Atta and his crew flew a plane into the World Trade Center out of love for Allah, we still don't see any sustained or concerted effort by Muslims here or anywhere else to disabuse their coreligionists of the jihad ideology.
In other words, terrorism is almost exclusively Muslim. Christians, Hindu's Jews, etc...are rarely caught killing dozens of people and then claiming their faith as a defense. When it does happen, we don't sing and danse in the streets and hand out candy to kids. W don't name our streets after terrorists like the Palestinians.
We comdemn them and bring them to justice.
