Now while I’m pretty sure that such news will not be all that well-received by a majority of Democrats, in that they apparently now view themselves as being the great defenders of Islam, a new study recently released by Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University has found that of the 452 suicide attacks it tallied in 2015, 450 were carried out by Muslims. And yet, aren’t we constantly being told that these people belong to a “religion of peace?” So it should then come as no surprise that Democrats now seem to be far more interested in ridiculing the research than in pointing out the need to adequately address its results.
So anyway, it was ‘The Times of Israel’ that reported: “Of course, we cannot avoid mentioning the religious element as the most significant factor that motivates the suicide terrorists throughout the world. Here’s the most dramatic statistic: 450 of 452 suicide terror attacks in 2015 were perpetrated by Muslim extremists. One of the remaining two attacks was carried out by the Kurdish underground. The other was perpetrated by a woman supporter of a leftist group in Turkey.” While I’m sure that this comes as no great surprise to most Americans, it does seem to conflict with what the Democrats are constantly telling us about this so-called ‘religion’.
And apparently it’s also according to this same research that even the attack in Turkey, initially attributed to a “leftist group”, may have also actually been carried out by a Muslim. According to media reports, police were investigating if the perpetrator was a Russian woman “radicalized by Wahhabi ideology.” If that turns out to be the case, that would mean 451 of the 452 attacks were perpetrated by Radical Islamic extremists. The research team included in its list only attacks it verified by two sources as being a suicide attack. So, I wonder, how many more attacks could actually be attributed to these very same crazed Muslim fanatics?
Mr. Yoram Schweitzer, director the Program on Terrorism and Low Intensity Conflict at Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies, told the Times of Israel, “We do not count every claim of a suicide attack. In other words, it’s not enough if Islamic State claims a certain number of suicide attacks.” He said, “Quite a few groups like to claim that they carried out suicide attacks to make themselves look more important and powerful. We always rely on at least two sources to determine that a suicide attack really did take place.” He added, “Even then, every determination we make is always qualified because we can never be exact about the percentages, and certainly not in places like Syria.”
And yet we still have Democrats from Washington to Los Angeles, most recently the Democrat mayor of the “City of Brotherly Love”, rushing to the defense of those who continue to choose to affiliate with this murderous cult. And do we really need some study to tell us that which is so painfully obvious? That being, of course, that the blowing up of oneself is the preferred method chosen by Muslims when killing those viewed as being ‘infidels’? And yet Democrats are ALWAYS the very first in the rush to enthusiastically defend these purveyors of hate, creating, at least, the perception that an alliance, of sorts, actually does exist between them.
