Can David Cameron Really Believe What He’s Telling Us About Islam?

Once again, a hat tip to Jed West, for this jaw dropping vignette (via of British Prime Minister David Cameron speaking about ISIS’ existential threat to the UK – and he tells us (with a straight face, mind you) that ISIS has nothing to do with Islam.  Just like Barack Obama told us.  Just like George W. Bush told us that the 9/11/01 attacks were not representative of the great religion of peace.  I used to to think there was something in the water in the White House.  Oh, would that that was all there was to it.  I think it’s a lot worse than that.

I’ve been writing for seven years now, blogging and publishing my books as an independent author. Some of my books are certainly blasphemous by Muslim standards.  Not David Cameron.  He’s no blasphemer.  Maybe he figures if he refuses to connect Muhammad’s deeds or teachings with any of this ongoing horror, he’ll skate free of the blasphemer label.  I don’t know what he’s really thinking.

I’ll tell you this.  David Cameron’s abject denial of the in-your-face truth, even when prompted by his interviewing host to help him figure out just what the truth is, is not of this world.

He is one more bubble-head of state who knows little or nothing about Muhammad, about Muhammad’s life, about Islam’s codified mainstream doctrine, or the history of the three waves of jihad.  BTW, we’re about to be swamped in the Third Wave right now, in case you haven’t been keeping up with current events.

Cameron does have it right about the “death cult.”   But.  He’s entirely wrong about what ISIS is doing being some sort of a perversion of Islam. It is pure Islam as Muhammad instructed it be practiced in the 7th century.  Jihad.  Killing.  Burning.   Amputating.  Flogging.  Stoning.  All of it.  Until everyone submits.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    Its the belief in Politicians who are so far removed from being a representative and statesmen of the people.
