The identity of the radical Islamic terrorist responsible for the slaying of 84 in Nice, France, and wounding 202 others has been released and his identification found. It is now being a reported that 2 Americans were among the victims, a father and his 11-year old son.
Last night while the terror attack in France was being a reported, a friend of mine asked me if they knew who did it yet and if they had a name. I said, “Not yet, but I’m sure the name has a Mohammad in it somewhere.” I didn’t know at the time that the terrorist’s name indeed has Mohammad in it, although spelled slightly different than the typical spelling we are use to seeing.
Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel:
It’s not racist or bigoted to say so, as one of the most popular names in the world is Mohammad, and Muslims do tend to name their children Mohammad, so the chances are more than favorable that an Islamic terrorist would bare this name.
Even if this terrorist did not have “Mohamed” in his actual name, the cause of his radical ideology is the same. The teaching of the prophet Mohammed in the Koran have inspired millions throughout the centuries to conquer, kill and convert. It’s also true that many other religions have had their violent times, but they seem to have grown and evolved with the passing of time to adapt to modern society. Islam has not, because it’s very foundation is built upon not assimilating with other cultures or interpreting their teachings in any other way besides literal.
ISIS, along with various other factions within the Middle East, consider themselves devout follows of Mohammed and the Koran. In their eyes, they are not misinterpreting it, they are following the prophet’s teaching to the letter.
The very phrase that Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel reportedly yelled while going on his Jihad in France last night, “Allah Akbar,” God is Great, comes straight out of the Koran and has been a battle cry for Islam for the past 1400 years.
What many politicians and everyday people fail to understand is that Islam is not only a religion, it’s a political system designed to subjugate its citizens and force the conversion to Islam either through violence or Jizya (taxes levied upon those who do not practice Islam). Liberals seem to believe that Islam can live peacefully along side them while still holding their convictions and their belief in Sharia Law. A system of rules within Islam that calls for the suppression of women’s rights, beheading of apostates and the slaughter of homosexuals.
France has continued to allow thousands of migrants to flood into their country and establish areas of French cities that are now completely controlled by Sharia law and Muslim ideologies. The police won’t even go into those areas unless they have a heavily armed tactical team with them. These areas are classified for law enforcement as, “no go zones.” Since when is it acceptable for law enforcement not to enter an area of their own country due to its control from hostile forces?
Wherever Islam spreads, wherever they are concentrated, wherever the unwavering belief in Sharia law exists…Violence, death and suppression of all beliefs that do not conform to Islam exists.
Their belief in Jihad is not isolated to a handful or radicals, in fact 42% of Muslim Youth in France ALWAYS Support Suicide Bombing.
Suicide bombings that end up in scenes such as this one, the aftermath of the theater terrorist attacks in France back in November, 2015.
132 people, dead, from this attack. You may flinch from a gory sight, but every single Westerner should see the destruction wrought by radical Islamic terror attacks, and understand that these attackers do not, and will never, view civilization or value life in the same way that we do. It’s not in their current culture or religion, and will never be part of their teachings until their Imams and Clerics accept it.
Not all Muslims are terrorists of course, not all follow the Sharia laws or subscribe to radical doctrines. But the fact remains, the teachings themselves inspire many to become radicalized and until their religions leaders all agree that this violence has no place in our modern world, these attacks will not just continue, but accelerate.
