Every time ISIS commit one of their atrocities, well-meaning folks mumble self-loathing apologies on behalf of "the west".
Noam Chomsky and his sort lead a chorus of masochistic confessions. Apparently everybody is to blame for Islamic terrorism (according to Bill Nye global warming causes ISIS) - apart from Islamic terrorists of course.
ISIS publish a regular magazine for its followers called Dabiq (far more professional than the Watchtower) and issue number 15 has just been released. Among this month's articles is "Why We Hate You, and Why We Fight You".
The debate between the regressive left and better informed commentators such as Sam Harris, Maajid Nawaz, Douglas Murray and others, is now settled beyond all doubt. ISIS hate us because we are not Muslims and they are not going to stop hating us and murdering us until we are.
Here are a few extracts from the article that can be downloaded in full here...
1 - We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers;
2 - We hate you because your secular, liberal societies permit the very things that Allah has prohibited while banning many of the things He has permitted
3 - In the case of the atheist fringe, we hate you and wage war against you because you disbelieve in the existence of your Lord and Creator.
4 - We hate you for your crimes against Islam and wage war against you to punish you for your transgressions against our religion. As long as your subjects continue to mock our faith, insult the prophets of Allah – including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad – burn the Quran, and openly vilify the laws of the Shari’ah, we will continue to retaliate, not with slogans and placards, but with bullets and knives.
5 - We hate you for your crimes against the Muslims; your drones and fighter jets bomb, kill, and maim our people around the world, and your puppets in the usurped lands of the Muslims oppress, torture, and wage war against anyone who calls to the truth.
6 - We hate you for invading our lands
What’s important to understand here is that although some might argue that your foreign policies are the extent of what drives our hatred, this particular reason for hating you is secondary, hence the reason we addressed it at the end of the above list. The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us, imprisoning us, torturing us, vilifying us, and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam. Even if you were to pay jizyah and live under the authority of Islam in humiliation, we would continue to hate you.
You can continue to believe that those “despicable terrorists” hate you because of your lattes and your Timberlands, and continue spending ridiculous amounts of money to try to prevail in an unwinnable war, or you can accept reality and recognize that we will never stop hating you until you embrace Islam...
