Now, I'm really confused. When I, and others like me, state that it's the devout Muslims who are the threat to national security because they live out what they read in the Koran and the Hadith, the Left goes nuts spouting what bigots and Islamophobes we are. Actually, realists would better described what we are. All the tolerance in the world will not eradicate the threat of jihad.
Nevertheless, I find this article fascinating. If the Koran is so peaceful than why does more devotion to the study of the Muslims' holy book result in terrorism? How can that be?
Read from Jihad Watch:
Flight 253 jihadist not religious when he arrived in Yemen, but grew "more committed to praying and Islam"
"Now wait a minute. If he grew more committed to Islam, wouldn't that have made him more peaceful? Is that what Obama and Holder and every other authority in the West constantly tells us? And if the opposite is true, if a deepening commitment to Islam made Abdulmutallab more violent and hateful, aren't there public policy implications in that fact that those authorities should stop ignoring? 'Plane suspect was secular when he arrived in Yemen,' by Mohammed Ghobari for Reuters, January 4 (thanks to James):
SANAA, Jan 4 (Reuters) - 'A young Nigerian man charged with trying to blow up a U.S. plane on Christmas Day was not deeply religious when he arrived in Yemen in 2004 but evolved into a devoted follower of Islam, a former teacher said.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 23, stayed in Yemen for a year between 2004 to 2005, before returning for another stay from Aug. 4 to Sept. 21 of last year, Yemeni officials have said. A teacher at the Sana Institute for the Arabic Language, who taught Abdulmutallab during his time in Yemen, said he was "closer to being secular" when he first arrived in the country.
"But during his visit last year, he was more committed to praying and Islam," the teacher said....'"
In other words, when the Nigerian undies bomber was a secular Muslim, he was not a threat to anyone, but when he became islamicized that's when the danger grew. Wonderful religion, is it not?
