Here We Go Again: Macron Vows Fight Against “Distorted” Version of Islam

News Date: 

Four people are dead at the police prefecture in Paris at the hands of a longtime employee, Mickaël Harpon, who . And now French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed finally to confront the problem: last Tuesday, he told Paris police officers that it was “inconceivable and unacceptable” that Harpon had been able to carry out a terrorist act “in the very place where we pursue terrorists and criminals.” He added: “Your colleagues fell under the blows of a distorted, deadly Islam which we must eradicate.”

A “distorted” version of Islam. Here we go again. Every last non-Muslim leader the world over, apparently, is absolutely sure that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance that has nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. The establishment media is fully on board. The only remaining dissenters have been demonized, stigmatized, and marginalized. The only people left who still need to be convinced of this are the Islamic terrorists themselves. Their problem is that they read the Qur’an. Emmanuel Macron doubtless has no idea that these kinds of passages are in the Qur’an:

“And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they drove you out; persecution is worse than slaughter. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, kill them — such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is all-forgiving, all-compassionate. Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers.” (Qur’an 2:191-193)
