America’s mainstream press and federal government explains the Tsarnaev brothers Boston Marathon Day bombing has nothing to do with international Islamic Jihad, despite their Cambridge mosque having multiple ties to international Islamic Jihadist organizations. The American citizenry has also had the Fort Hood Massacre explained away as workplace violence despite now Private (formerly Major) Nidal Malik Hasan screaming the international Islamic Jihadist war cry of “Allahu Akbar.” Also, when Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad opened fire on a Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station, killing one soldier and wounding another, Muhammad admitted to working directly for al-Qaeda. However, the killer was sent to prison on murder charges, not the separate charge of committing a terrorist act.
To the vast majority of Westerners, Islam’s sharia law seems at a minimum to be a legalistic curiosity. At the other end of the spectrum, mind boggling barbaric.
