Trump, Hillary and ISIS
“Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” said spokesman Brian Fallon in a statement.
Do liberals actually believe that crap? The answer, I think, is yes. They are deluded into thinking that if only we could be nicer to Muslims and show how much we love them, jihadists would stop being jihadists.
This is totally bogus. As I recently explained, ISIS exists because Muslims, who have been taught to believe that the Koran is the literal word of Allah and that Mohammed was the most perfect follower of Islam and that Muslims should lead their life according to his example, are discovering what the Koran and the Hadiths actually say.
I believe that harsh anti-Muslim rhetoric will actually help to contain jihadism. If the West stops apologizing for Islam and starts looking at it more harshly, that will cause the more moderate Muslims, who genuinely want to be accepted by the West, to be more active in modifying their religion to align with Western values, and perhaps create a more clear philosophy around why Muslims shouldn’t take that stuff in the Koran and the Hadiths seriously.
