Algerian Killers: “We’ve Come In the Name of Islam, To Teach the Americans What Islam Is”
But the trouble is that no one seems to learn the lesson no matter how often it’s taught. The 9/11 attackers came in the name of Islam to teach Americans what Islam is. The Benghazi attackers came in the in the name of Islam to teach Americans what Islam is. And the lesson is still unlearned.

The four-day hostage crisis in the Sahara reached a bloody conclusion on Saturday as the Algerian Army carried out a final assault on the gas field taken over by Islamist militants, killing most of the remaining kidnappers and raising the total of hostages killed to at least 23, Algerian officials said….

One Algerian who managed to escape told France 24 television late Friday night that the kidnappers said, “We’ve come in the name of Islam, to teach the Americans what Islam is.” The haggard-looking man, interviewed at the airport in Algiers, said the kidnappers then immediately executed five hostages.

And that is exactly what Islam is. It’s a bullet to the head of an unarmed man. A murder carried out for the purposes of display. An atrocity whose message is that Islam is a better religion than yours because its followers will kill you. That is what Islam is. That it is all it is. And over a thousand years of terror should have taught that lesson to the free peoples of the world already.

Islam is Daniel Pearl being beheaded. Islam is teenage girls being murdered in Afghanistan, in Jordan and in Toronto. Islam is non-Muslims being murdered because they’re non-Muslim and women being murdered because they’re women. Islam is over a thousand years of terror and tyranny wrapped into one brutal package.

This is Islam. Its lesson is the only one that it is capable of teaching, despite all the Koranic commentary and memorization. Its lesson is the same as that of the bullet or the poison or the Qassam rocket or the knife. Its lesson is death.

#9  Americans fall into 2 categories:

1. Already know
2. Don't care

Sadly, second category way outnumbers the first.

#8  I need to take a break from the news. Every one of these stories evokes the Ah go phuech yourselves response in me. It doesn't seem to matter whether it is the islamists, the global warming Nazis or the statists.

#7  Shifting or redirecting the focus away from an unhappy event to what they perceive to be root, societal causes, has always been the progressive formula.

#6  no matter how many times the Islamists have given this lesson, there are influential Islam apologists who keep up the 'out of context', 'its the fault of the Jews', 'its the poverty', etc. pratter

#5  There's a saying out there - it's not a lesson learned unless its been incorporated into routine behavior. Otherwise, its just a lesson, waiting to be (re)learned.

#4  I said it last week and I will say it again, Islam is the only religion in history to be based upon the psychotic ravings and hallucinations of a scheizophrenic mass murderer.

#1   Remember how much the Moslems absolutely HATE the Jews because it is an historical fact Moslems fought right alongside the Nazi SS...the Moslems even had their own SS Division ,,the ANSARI Division in the Nazi SS war machine. Moslems fought alongside the Nazi SS, joined and served.

Islam is not your friend.

Allahu Akbar, you infidel filth.
