I am honored to have the privilege to share with you the following article. It is written by DrDeb who I hope will become a regular contributor here at TheCivilVoice.com. DrDeb is a much respected friend and an inspiration to any that have the opportunity to know her. I’m sure you all will enjoy her thoughtful perspective in this article as we explore “Is Islam To Blame”.
Last night Omar Mir Seddique Mateen shouted “Allah Akbar” and over 100 people were either shot or wounded at his hand in Pulse, the Orlando gay night club.
Is Islam To Blame
Mateen was a Muslim, American-born, with Afghan parents. He had been married at one time, had a three-year old son, and divorced his Uzbekistan wife in 2011.
His ex-wife is already conveniently commenting that “(h)e was not a stable person,” stating that he would come home and start beating her simply because the laundry hadn’t been completed.
According to TheReligionofPeace.com, an article by James M. Arlandson on Domestic Violence in Islam, The Quran, and countless Google sources, a Muslim man is free to beat his wife when she disobeys him.
So Mateen’s wife’s failure to complete the laundry as he wished did not make him ‘unstable,’ but simply a Muslim man following his religious prerogatives.
I point this out because within less than 24 hours the killer’s wife came forward to claim he has mental issues. Furthermore, ABC reported that at 2:20 p.m., June 12, 2016, Obama responded to the shootings with these comments as paraphrased by ABC: “the worst mass shooting in U.S. history is a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get a weapon that allows them to shoot people in a school, in a house of worship, a movie theater or a gay nightclub.”
Is Islam To Blame – No It’s Guns To Blame
Notice Obama’s immediate shift to the gun as the issue rather than the man. Someone who is intent on killing is going to use any weapon they can, whether it’s a gun, a knife, fertilizer and ammonia, or their bare hands.
ABC further paraphrased him saying, “the United States has to decide if that is the ‘country we want to be.’ He says that doing nothing is a decision as well.” Obama also said the shootings were “an act of terror” and an “act of hate.”
The liberal media, the White House, Democrats and those drowning in political correctness, have already started constructing the killer based on those parts of his background that lean in any and every direction, other than his Islam religion, as the cause of his heinous actions.
They will avoid at all costs his Muslim faith as having any measure of responsibility for Mateen’s decision to kill gay and lesbian people. Mateen’s Muslim faith is not based on the presence or lack thereof of weapons as Obama would have us believe.
Is Islam To Blame – What To Do About Non-Believers
Islam is a radical religion in and of itself and demands believers be devout followers or face severe and drastic consequences.
The left will point out the guilt that Americans should have for not having strict enough laws, or not being open-minded enough, or failing to accept differences. Or, they will come back to any conservative values they disagree with and promote these as the root cause of the deaths and injuries of the night club revelers rather than seeing that Mateen’s Islam religion is the basis of his hate.
There will be no focus on that. I guarantee that Christianity will somehow be called into question in some manner rather than saying anything about Islam wherein the Quran clearly calls for non-believers to be dealt with in very negative ways.
Is Islam To Blame – Divert Attention To Conceal The Truth
What will be happening with this unspeakable crime, as has happened with similar killings that involved Muslims, will be the diversion from the truth and the real causes for the Orlando slaughter.
It is not PC to mention that Mateen is a Muslim and the power his faith had on him.
Of course, this is of tremendous concern since the government is letting so many Syrian Muslim refugees come to this country as well as the growing Islamic population that is already living here.
Is Islam To Blame – They Refuse To Assimilate
Islam is not a religion of assimilation, and, in fact, does all that it can to weaken any and all other faiths that exist in the countries that it works to expand in.
Look what’s happening in Europe. Muslim mobs are out of control in many countries, with women particularly endangered by Muslim men who find non-Muslim women to be ripe targets for subjugation and abuse for their “inappropriate” dress or behaviors including being out alone or with other women.
Is Islam To Blame – Sharia Law
Multiple countries including England, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and others have allowed Muslim Sharia law to take precedence over their national laws in certain parts of their countries, which is a gigantic indicator that millions and millions of Muslims have not and will not assimilate in the countries they occupy.
Sharia Law In Europe gives a great description of what’s happening in parts of Europe and other parts of the world as well.
And the same thing is happening here in the US, with Muslims pushing for the advancement of Sharia Law wherever they can and many states fighting back by passing anti-Sharia laws to ensure Sharia can never have a place in our legal system.
Obama has secretly supported the global Islamist militant group called the Muslim Brotherhood, Gertz Expose: Pentagon docs show Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood, and adamantly refuses to admit that Islam purposefully drives followers to be loyal to Muhamed, up to and including torturing and killing non-believers, and all the while, systematically working toward taking over in every respect any communities or countries Muslims migrate to.
BILLIONBIBLES.ORG reports: “The Muslim Brotherhood’s Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), has penetrated the highest levels of the US government.
The White House now has a White House Muslim Advisor, who has counterpart Muslim advisors at the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, whose Senior Fellow, Mohamed Elibiary recently declared that USA is an “Islamic country.”
I’m sure that among criminals you will find members every of religion. But Islam demands that believers obey and act. And that is what Mateen did.
Obama’s paraphrased comment “the United States has to decide if that is the ‘country we want to be.’”
That’s a decision I don’t have to make because I’ve always believed in the “good” America, the historical America, an America where her citizens and all those who choose to join our ranks:
- Don’t burn her flag;
- Believe in being responsible for their own lives and well-being;
- Don’t ask the government to take care of them because they take pride in working as many jobs as it takes to take care of themselves and their families;
- Respect every man or woman’s hard work, initiative, or creativity that made them rich or better off, and look to such people as role models not as enemies;
- Believe in doing what’s right for the country and her people as a whole;
- Believe laws serve a purpose and are meant to be obeyed and take pride in doing so;
- Have the opportunity to be all they can be based on following the rules and being a contributing member of American society;
- Recognize that the greatness of America is based on the founding fathers’ belief in God and the role God plays in our Constitution and our lives.
Is Islam To Blame – America In the Crosshairs
It is Obama and those who choose to ignore the core reason for Mateen’s murderous actions, who are changing this country from the one we want it to be.
We’d better start getting involved before America is totally lost to the insanity and destruction that people like Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their followers doggedly try to force down our throats and into our lives every moment of every day just as Muhammad forcefully influences his followers to destroy non-believers.
Mateen and what he did exemplifies Muhammad’s “ideal” follower when it comes to infidels of Islam. How many more “ideal” followers are sickened by America’s heathen ways and live here already?
Can we afford to ignore this? What do you think?
No matter how many words are written, theories or opinions expressed, none could ever convey the terrible sorrow, loss, and brokenness the families and friends of all the innocent victims are experiencing in this unspeakable tragedy that has resulted in the deaths and injuries of their loved ones.
Please know that our hearts are heavy with your grief and we are praying for God’s grace, courage, and strength for each of you as you struggle to cope with this devastation.
You have certainly given us a lot to consider here DrDeb in Is Islam To Blame. Thank you very much for your perspective. I fear that we can no longer ignore the potential for more “ideal” followers as you mention.
The big question for me is how do we as a Civil society deal with these most UnCivil persons, acts and ideologies. In a land of religious freedom, how can we protect the civil population from an uncivil religion?
I join you in prayer for the families and loved ones of the victims of the massacre in Orlando. God bless them all, each and every one.
