Memory eternal!! May the Lord welcome his latest martyr into the Mansions of the just.
A few years back, we had a thread in which Islamic followers demanded that crosses be taken down in the Middle East. Now they have exported their militancy to Europe. I wonder what it will take for Europe to waken; I wonder what it will take for us. We've just had Orlando; we've had killings on a military base; we've had San Bernadino; we've had other attacks. We now see that 9/11 has links to the Saudi royal family. We keep looking for links, but overlook the common, obvious ones--the Koran and the Islamic hadiths.
This is culture clash, the kind that Mohammad said his followers should do when they reached a majority or near majority. At first, preach peace he taught; later forcibly impose the Islamic belief system. They see Christians and Jews as people who have corrupted God's revelation and can thus be killed with no compassion. It doesn't take anything special, but someone to become convinced by reading the Koran or hearing a sermon and act on it. This is holy war and eternal rewards await the believer who acts on the command to take out infidels. Right now these people are engaging in the kind of terror attacks that are designed to make people weary and want to surrender just to have peace. But peace can only come with submission.
