“Why is it terrorism when a white guy shoots up a school, but just mental illness when a Muslim opens fire on a crowd? The power to label is in the hands of the Leftist Media, with a huge mouth and no eyes or ears.
However, if we were to let the shooter be judged, not by the color of his skin but by the content of his character – in this case a Devout Muslim named Faisal Hussain, who visited sites promoting ISIS – then we must look to what Islam teaches. The “prophet” Muhammad bragged “I have become victorious through terror”.
Muhammad invented Islamic terrorism. He commanded his followers to imitate him. A definition of terrorism is: The unlawful use of violence against civilians in pursuit of political aims. Islam is and always has been a political movement.
Muhammad used terror to expand the political reach of his creation, Islam. And those who are devoted to his teachings are expected to do the same. There is no difference between ISIS and Muhammad. The Islam of 622 AD is the Islam of today.
And by the way, ISIS has now claimed responsibility for the attack.
