Islamism produces depraved young men in the West who randomly kill innocents.
Islamism is an ideology of slaughter,
and it will never stop producing young men like the Boston bombers,
the Toulouse butcher,
the Times Square bomber
and the London bombers.
New ones are being made every day.
Islamist terror attacks on the West
will never end, until Islamism ends.
Yet again, the western left doesn't want to know.
The western left doesn't know or care what motivates the jihadists.

for calling Boston a probable jihad attack. "despicable ... filth"
Of course, Spencer turned out to be right.
It was a jihad attack.
responded to my inclusion of him here by
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's statement, June 2015, shows Spencer was of course right and
Poonawalla was of course wrong.
"I would like to begin in the name of Allah, the exalted and glorious, the most gracious, the most merciful
The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him
after the bombing, which I am guilty of - if there's any lingering doubt about that, let there be no more. I did do it along with my brother ...
I am a Muslim. My religion is Islam. The God I worship, besides whom there is no other God, is Allah.
I ask Allah to have mercy upon me and my brother and my family.
And I ask Allah to have mercy upon the ummah of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Amin. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds."
What a surprise that the jihadi maniac bomber is not the handsome secular hipster his female fans thought he was!
the western left blamed the "right", until it was discovered it was jihad.

And the pattern will repeat.

has been warning about the Boston mosque for years, but no one listened.
No one in 2011 connected the facts that one of the dead Jews was a friend of a Muslim
who had recently changed to radical Islam.
Better police work could have caught these Islamic terrorists before the Boston bombing.
After it emerged that it was Islamic terrorism, the left became uninterested in the motivation
of the bombers:
The Boston Bombers Were Muslim: So? by Megan Garber, 19 Apr 2013.
She says we should not apply labels like "Muslim jihadist" to Muslim jihadists.
They are so much more than that.
They had girlfriends and liked music and skateboarding and Twitter.
Blowing the legs off children for jihad should not define them.
Radical British leftist
Richard Seymour, 20 Apr 2013, says that to blame Islamism for Islamist bombings is "racist".
"Even with two bombing suspects identified
no one understands yet why the Boston Marathon was targeted.
With as little as we know about the attackers' motives, there seems no logic to the attacks
Some rightwing politicians, such as Republican Congressman Peter King, have wasted no time in
honing in on the fact that the perpetrators were Muslim
Yet, racism is not the only response.
this is the knife's edge on which Boston is balanced: between solidarity and racism."
Days pass. Lots more material emerges on the bombers' jihad motivation.
But the left doesn't care:
God help us in a world infused with anger, Lionel Shriver, 22 Apr 2013.
Lionel Shriver writes an entire article on the bombers without ever mentioning their motivation.
She tries to link them to "angry people" on Internet blogs and twitter.

This enemy is us."

"Chechen? American? Immigrant? Citizen? Muslim?
Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may be all of the above, but how we attempt to come to grips with the attacks allegedly perpetrated by the brothers has much to do with how we identify them."NewsBusters replies:
"The label to be avoided is apparently "Islamic terrorist.""
Sydney Morning Herald
was so confident that the Tea Party did the Boston bombings that they ran this image on 19 Apr 2013.
The Tea Party, of course, have never bombed anyone.
The sad decline of
Long after news emerged that the
Boston bombers were jihadis,

"we now have a chance to find out exactly what motivated this atrocity".
20 Apr 2013
he is still baffled as to why these young men bombed innocents in Boston:
"the latest information suggests that Islamism may not have been their primary motivation."
How the old Charles Johnson would have laughed at this fool!
Glenn Greenwald, 21 Apr 2013, also has no clue as to the Boston jihadists' motive.
He has no interest in their
support for jihad on social media.
He is holding out for something that fits his world view.
Boston Muslims angry at focus on Tsarnaev brothers' religion, Irish Times, 22 Apr 2013.
"Mays is angry that the media has highlighted Tamerlan's devotion to Islam, suggesting this as a possible motive behind the actions of the suspected bomber who died following a shoot-out with police in the Watertown area near the city.
"In other crimes it is not mentioned that the person went to church the Sunday before, so why should they mention that someone is a devout Muslim?" she said."
Um, maybe because Islam was 100 percent of the motive in this
- and thousands of other - jihad attacks?
Bishop of Worcester, Massachusetts
thinks it was caused by video games!
"The bishop urged residents to treat neighbors and strangers from different traditions with "respect and try to understand the differences."
The bishop decried the prevalence of violent imagery in American culture.
The bishop noted that bullying has been recognized as a nationwide problem and that violent video games and movies captivate youths and adults with no letup in popularity."
The title says it all.
The words "Islamism" and "jihad" never appear in this article.
The only mention of the cause of the bombings - the bombers' religion - is, perversely,
in the following section,
which blames Americans for being hostile to that religion:
""It's very difficult to develop a sense of belonging, especially if you're part of a community that is not positively recognized," says Leisy Abrego, an assistant professor of Chicano studies at UCLA.
That often includes Muslim and Arab immigrants, says Saeed Khan, a lecturer at Wayne State University in Michigan, whose expertise includes ethnic identity and Muslim culture.
"They come into a culture that has really been defined by 9/11," Khan says, as the Tsarnaev brothers, both Muslim, would have done."
So Islam did not make them kill the infidel children.
Rather, American hostility to Islam made them kill, kill, kill for Islam.
Perhaps the strangest intervention of all:
Joe Biden uses the word "jihadis"
at the funeral of the slain police officer!
The Irish Times uses the word "jihadis"
in a headline!
What on earth is going on?
Are both Biden and the Irish Times getting sense?
Or is it just a fluke?
Biden goes off-message and for once, unlike Obama, attacks the bombers for what they are - jihadis.
"whether it's al-Qaeda central out of the
or two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knock-off jihadis here in Boston.
You are their worst nightmare.
All the things these perverted jihadis, self-made or organized, all the things they fear."
Hunt for the elusive Tea Party murderer continues, John Hayward, April 20th, 2013.
"The embarrassing failure of their "climate of hate" Tucson hysteria didn't stop the Left from doing exactly the same thing last week, and last week's narrative implosion won't stop them from trying it again next time. Sooner or later, one of these maniacs will turn out to be someone who doesn't like ObamaCare!
There's no practical reason for liberals to stop running this game; they pay no real price for getting it wrong.
Dzhokar Tsarnaev celebrated Barack Obama's re-election online, but he could easily restart the entire liberal Climate of Hate greenhouse-gas system by casually remarking to his interrogators that he's thought it over, and now really wishes Mitt Romney had won. Do not for one moment doubt how quickly that would unleash a tidal wave of triumphant "aha, we knew it!" blog posts from the same people who got the "Tax Day bombing" smear wrong."
In contrast to leftist idiots like
Charles Johnson and Glenn Greenwald,
the counter-jihad gets the story.

The Boston bombing should
cause a debate on immigration.
Victor Davis Hanson, 23 Apr 2013,
points out that the Boston bombing exposes many issues with the system of immigration:
The jihadi family was given supposed "asylum" from Russia
- and yet chose to visit Russia for long periods and even live there!
So the "asylum" was entirely fraudulent.
got criminal convictions (domestic violence, shoplifting) and yet were not deported.
were living on welfare for years and yet were not deported.
Resident aliens were investigated by the FBI for terror links and yet were not deported.
"In short, if a Tamerlan Tsarnaev cannot be deported, then perhaps no resident alien can be under any circumstances."
American immigrants may be going the way of European immigrants
- hating their host country, and identifying with some imaginary ancestral culture.
But don't expect Obama, the left or the media to pursue these questions.
Mark Steyn, 23 Apr 2013:
"The Tsarnaev family were admitted to the United States as refugees supposedly because they were in fear of their lives in the Russian Federation. It's so deadly that Tamerlan vacations there for six months."
Iowahawk sums it up:
"So the Tsarnaevs came on a refugee visa, collected $100k, went back home for vacation, then blew up 260 Americans."
The entire focus of this story is on how Tamerlan Tsarnaev's boxing dreams were frustrated
because he was not granted citizenship.
So ... he bombed American families and blew the legs off children.
Anyone would have done the same.
The New York Times is more or less saying:
"We were mean to the immigrant, and that's why he killed".
Because that's the kind of comforting narrative that makes sense to the New York Times.
The fact is, of course, everyone has setbacks in life.
But most people who have setbacks do not blow the legs off innocent children.
For that you need something entirely different,
such as the evil ideology of Islamism.
Barry Rubin, 29 Apr 2013, replies to the absurd New York Times piece,
and says they deliberately avoid understanding the bomber,
because to do so would mean to look at immigration.
"Where to begin? ... Tamerlan Tsarnaev first entered the United States at age 16. Isn't he more a product of Russian than of U.S. conditions? ... he and his brother were largely shaped by that environment and by the struggle there.
But the authors cannot focus on this issue. Why not? Well, obviously they want to blame America first, but also there is a big land mine there. Pointing out that immigrants - legal or otherwise - may bring with them hatred, grievances, and cultural formations inimical to America makes a point in the immigration debate which would be the exact opposite of what they want aired."
"To have a serious discussion about why some immigrants become loyal, productive citizens and others become terrorists would be an important discussion. But it cannot happen at present because it would have to include factoring in such things as personal responsibility, gratitude to one's adopted country, and even - totally unthinkable
- the need to keep in mind the immigrant's original home.
to step into that territory would require considering: the failure of a historic policy to assimilate immigrants that has been replaced by multiculturalism; the abandonment of patriotism and the distaste for America and its society daily expressed by the citizens of Boston met by the Tsarnaevs; and the idea of entitlement and the welfare state that pervaded their concept of America."
Brilliantly, Rubin suggests the following lead paragraph for the story. You will never read a lead paragraph like this
in the New York Times (or the Irish Times):
"Tamerlan Tsarnaev found in America a society that did not require him to become loyal to the country, to understand how well it treated his family, and how he could actually spend his time reading terrorist sites on the Internet while his beaten wife worked 80 hours a week and his family collected welfare. Spoiled by good treatment from America, he became more Islamic and turned to terrorism."
