The gullible West

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11
Click here for more details
"Afghan President Hamid Karzai said on Sunday the Muslim world was “in turmoil” and wondered whether the “war on terror” led by the United States since 2001 was to blame for the radicalisation. ... The Afghan leader said: “Today, the Muslim world is in turmoil from Pakistan up to Nigeria,” and stressed: “In my view, the West as led by the US needs to explain itself to the Muslim world.”...  “In my view, there is much that we Muslims have to correct in our societies and governments, by showing more tolerance towards the rest of the world and other religions … but there is also a great deal of explanation to be done by the US and our Western friends." 
- With respect Mr President, Islamic terrorist attacks did not start in 2001 with the infamous 9/11 attacks in the US

President Karzai is not alone in suggesting that we in the West have some explaining to do as a result of these terrorist attacks. In Oxford recently an Imam suggested that Iraq was the turning point leading to Islamic terrorism in the UK. Referring to the "Woolwich murderers" Dr. Taj Hargey commented: "the Muslim community in the UK had never known such brutal terrorist attacks until the UK’s previous government drew Britain into overseas conflicts in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, and started “slavishly following” US policies.

There can be no excuses for terrorism. Such comments merely serve to deflect attention away from the root cause of Islamic terrorism which is “slavishly following” an ideology that leads to these atrocities as explained here rather than engaging in the means to eradicate it. Meanwhile gullible Westerners continue to turn a blind eye to the most appalling acts of desecration and blatant discrimination against Christians and other non-Muslims while being lectured about our complicity in terrorist acts. 

Today Cranmer has posted Palestinian Islamists are cleansing the Holy Land of Christians, just one more example of the duplicity of the religion of peace. Appeasement continues as our hard-pressed police set up a 'ring of steel' to protect mosques based on pure speculation

Rather than condemn the UK and the West in general through innuendo, far better to look at the global picture and the root cause of Islamic terrorism. But of course that is not going to happen as explained here. Islam will continue to be regarded as the victim [mutatis mutandis] by the gullible West until it is too late.

    Douglas Murray's new book "Islamophilia" should be required reading for politicians and church leaders. And no, I don't have shares in the publisher!

    1. Thank you for the tip Father. Readers may be interested to read a brief review by Melanie Phillips included in "Rowan Williams and Islamophilia: A Very Metropolitan Malady".

      In a more serious vein, more in line with Melanie Phillips' comments on Rowan Williams' apparent acceptance of elements of Sharia Law in the UK, I would have liked to recommend Patrick Sookhdeo's "Slippery Slope, The Islamisation of the UK" for the Barnabas Fund but it appears to be out of print. The booklet covered areas of concern over Immigration, Integration, Islamisation and its Implications in addition to the work of 'Operation Nehemiah', a programme of action to promote the spiritual transformation of the UK.

      I find it incomprehensible that a Church of England lay reader filed a complaint against the Barnabas Fund with the Charity Commissioner suggesting that they were “campaigning” against another religion 'which was akin to inciting racial hatred'. They were completely exonerated but what hope can there be for Christianity when members of the Church of England capitulate?
