James Wright Foley’s brutal public murder should serve as a cautionary tale to all progressive “infidels” who decry others as “Islamophobes.”
According to Daniel Greenfield, writing for Front Page Magazine, “Foley came to Syria to support the Sunni Islamist rebels against the Syrian government.
He cheered on the Sunni Muslim terrorists fighting to ethnically cleanse the Christians of Aleppo. In the conflict between Israel and Hamas, his tweets and retweets were chock full of pro-terrorist propaganda.
Hm, rather unfortunate choice of words for this idealistic man in that tweet.“But Foley ran afoul of at least some of the Sunni Jihadists in Syria. His twitter feed was filled with references to the FSA. And the FSA was going to be eclipsed by the Al Qaeda affiliates. And that was where he ended up.” During the 2012 election, Foley tweeted that both candidates were weak on the issue of gun violence.
Sadly in the end, that wasn’t ever going to be his biggest problem.
The moral of the story is this: ISIS/IS/ISIL — you name it — these Islamic terror organizations want Westerners dead. And that is what we should wish for them.
