What a great hashtag. In case you don’t know, that’s what a stranger yelled at a man who was wielding a knife and attacked some people on a subway in London in the name of Allah. A stranger is heard yelling “You’re no Muslim bro!”.
That four (well, five) little words say it all for me. There is so much focus on using the term “Radical Islam”. We validate the terrorists by using this term because we are calling them “Muslims”. “Radicalized Muslims”. We’re validating their belief of being “Muslims”. Let’s stop it. Let’s stop calling them Muslims, and stop associating them with Islam. They’re terrorists, thugs, murderers, criminals. Let’s call them that. Paris was attacked by radicalized terrorists. An office in San Berardino was terrorized by a team of murderous thugs.
Isis is not comprised of “Radicalized Muslims”, they are comprised of evil human beings, filled with hatred and desirous of power and domain over their fellow man. They behead, kill, rape, sodomize, blow-up, and murder. They are not Muslims. They are not children of Allah.
Let’s stop calling them Muslims, and let’s stop associating them with Islam.
That’s it. Just my small rant for today.
