It’s just great to see that while the terror group ISIS is rampaging around the Middle East crucifying, beheading and raping people, that our more enlightened politicians are trying to tell us that Islam is really not that bad, and certainly no different to Christianity.
Most people were shocked at the sight of a young boy from Sydney holding up a human head like a trophy. The gallant people of the political left told us to get over it and move on.
The Australian reports this:
Opposition assistant treasury spokesman Andrew Leigh said the image was “horrendous” and noted “extremism comes in all sorts of guises”. “We need to celebrate the Australian Muslim community to recognise that there are many peoples of different faiths in the world and extremism comes in all sorts of guises. The Oklahoma bombing was carried out by a Christian.”
Mr Leigh should do some basic research. There is a thing called the internet and a quick check of Google or Wikipedia would have shown him that the Oklahoma bombing was in fact carried out by a guy who would best be described as agnostic and who had turned his back on the Catholic faith that he was raised in.
Extremism does come in all kinds of guises, but the most deadly and barbaric at the moment all happen to be Islamic, not christian. We worry about people returning from jihad in Syria, but not about anyone coming back from Rome.
