In late September of 2001, just a few days after some 3,000 Americans were killed in the 9/11/01 attacks, then-President George W. Bush stood with operatives of the Muslim Brotherhood at his shoulder and told us that Islam is a religion of peace. Despite the volumes of published information, historical and otherwise, which are available to the contrary, he has never publicly repudiated or recanted that position.
Twelve people have been shot dead at the headquarters of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, say police.
Masked gunmen stormed the offices of the controversial publication, which has previously been attacked over its portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed.
They were armed with Kalashnikov rifles and are also believed to have had a rocket-propelled grenade.
In one video clip, the attackers are heard to shout: “We have avenged the prophet.”…
And to which prophet could they have been alluding?
Read all of it. You will note, if you browse on down a few paragraphs in the report, that SkyNews is very careful to label the targeted publishers as “controversial.” Ah, yes. Controversial. Helps to blunt the barbarity and perhaps even give us a whiff of justifying the attack?
So, once again, here’s the question: What will it take for the leadership and populace of Western Civilization to awaken to the realities of Islam?
