In the latest issue of their propaganda magazine Dabiq, ISIS mocked those in the West who are reluctant to blame Islamic terrorism on Islam.
In an article titled “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You,” they begin by mocking the response to the Pulse nightclub massacre. To quote; “Shortly following the blessed attack on a sodomite, Crusader nightclub by the mujahid Omar Mateen, American politicians were quick to jump into the spotlight and denounce the shooting, declaring it a hate crime, an act of terrorism, and an act of senseless violence. A hate crime? Yes. Muslims undoubtedly hate liberalist sodomites, as does anyone else with any shred of their fitrah (inborn human nature) still intact. An act of terrorism? Most definitely. Muslims have been commanded to terrorize the disbelieving enemies of Allah. But an act of senseless violence? One would think that the average Westerner, by now, would have abandoned the tired claim that the actions of the mujahidin – who have repeatedly stated their goals, intentions, and motivations – don’t make sense.”
Last night, there was a mass stabbing attack in London’s Russell Square where a Somali teenager with a Norwegian passport murdered a 60-year-old American woman and injured five others.
The (Muslim) mayor of London, Sadiq Khan issued a statement saying, “I have spoken with the Commissioner, and the Assistant Commissioner, who have assured me that our police officers are working extremely hard to investigate exactly what has happened and to keep the rest of us safe. A man was arrested at the scene. Police have spoken to him and are seeking to establish the full facts including motives for this attack.”
Well, golly all Mayor Khan needs to do is check Twitter to find the motive.The Guardian reported that “Police believe the attack was “spontaneous” and triggered by mental health issues, with victims selected at random,” meanwhile, ISIS sympathizers believe otherwise. According to Heavy.com: “While it is unclear if the so-called Islamic State is behind tonight’s deadly knife attack in London, members of ISIS terrorist channels were quick to spread the news.”
One account said: “It’s nice to wake up to such news.”
Another added: “And here you have a picture of the site where the stabbing took place, Russell Square in the centre of ‘Christendom’ London.” (Translations courtesy of Express)
ISIS has yet to issue an official statement, but if they truly did inspire the attack, the constant denial from the media and politicians will no doubt be the subject of even more mockery.
