“I Once Was Blind”

The Orlando Shooting was First and Foremost an Act of Jihad


The Orlando shooting was first and foremost an act of jihad against all of us by a man who believed his religion required him to be at war with us. Not because of anything Bush did or anything Trump said, but simply because we are a secular, modern nation and his interpretation of Islam calls for restoring religious purity by ridding the world of secularism and modernity.

The father of modern Islamist radicalism, an Egyptian man named Sayyid Qutb, came to America in 1948 and returned to Egypt on a mission to rid Egypt of all secularism and modernity in an effort to restore his country to what he believed was a pure vision of Islam.
He wrote a book that inspired fellow Egyptian Ayman al-Zawahiri, who joined Osama bin Laden as one of the two leaders of al-Qaeda and the masterminds of 9/11.

Now we have ISIS.

Islamist jihadists believe that the two biggest enemies of pure Islam are secularism and modernity, and they are at war with us because they see us as the #1 source of secularism and modernity.

The first 9/11 in 2001 was an act of war. The second 9/11 in Benghazi in 2012 was an act of war. The Boston Marathon bombing was an act of war. The Paris, San Bernardino, and Orlando shootings were acts of war.

Why do the Democrats think our response should be gun control measures that limit Americans’ ability to buy guns and defend ourselves?

The only way Islamist jihadists will lay down their weapons and be at peace with us is if we surrender our secularism and our modernity. What does that look like?

That means we become an Islamic country and return to life as it was in the time of their prophet. Their war will continue until we either do that, or win the war.

Which do you think we should do?
