8 of This Week’s Most Absurd Statements About Islam and Jihad

6. Canada Muslim leader after jihad murders: “The main victims, other than the people who died yesterday, are Muslims themselves”

After Rouleau’s act of jihad murder, Haroun Bouazzi, a spokesman for the Association des Musulmans et Arabes pour la Laïcité du Québec (AMAL-Québec), declared: “The main victims, other than the people who died yesterday, are Muslims themselves because more and more, they are seen as an enemy from inside.”

The pattern never changes: in the wake of a jihad terror attack or plot, Muslims in the West do not do what they should do: redouble their efforts against jihadis in their own communities, and their cooperation with law enforcement officials. Instead, they claim that they are already cooperating, despite all the evidence to the contrary, and complain that they are being victimized by a “backlash” and try to seize the spotlight as victims.

The mainstream media, of course, is all too willing to oblige. Four separate studies since 1998 have shown that 80% of the mosques in the U.S. teach hatred of Jews and Christians and the superiority of Sharia over constitutional law, and the percentage is likely to be similar in Canada, but no one seems concerned. To be concerned would be “Islamophobic.” Meanwhile, this claim of victimhood is designed to deflect attention away from the jihad murders themselves, and intimidate people into thinking that it would be wrong to pile on to these poor victimized people and demand that they do more to stop the preaching of the Islamic doctrines that incite people to acts of hatred and violence.
