‘Mere Islam’ and the Munich Massacre

FrontPage Magazine

A German-born 18-year-old of Iranian descent named Ali Sonboly went on a shooting spree last Friday.  He reportedly targeted young children and murdered nine.

This incident is a reminder that the ongoing terrorization of the West is not limited to the Islamic State (ISIS), “extreme” Wahhabi or Salafi interpretations of Islam, or terrorists posing as refugees entering the West.

Ali Sonboly was none of those.  He was born and raised in Germany and, based on his name and Iranian heritage, was most likely of Shia background.

But he was a Muslim.  He screamed Islam’s ancient war cry “Allahu Akbar” during his rampage and, less significantly, launched his attack on the one day of the week that many calculated Islamic attacks on non-Muslims occur: Friday.[1]

And that is the grand lesson of the Munich massacre.  Mere Islam—to borrow from C.S. Lewis’ famous book about the many commonalities shared by most Christian denominations—is responsible for the ongoing terrorization of the West.

If you doubt this, simply turn to a recent study.  It found that Muslims of all sects, races, and sociopolitical circumstances—not just “ISIS”—are responsible for persecuting Christians in 41 of the 50 worst nations to be Christian in: Shia Iran is the ninth worst nation, “Wahhabi” Saudi Arabia is 14th, while “moderate” countries like Malaysia and Indonesia are ranked 30 and 43 respectively.

The common denominator in all these nations is ISLAM—without qualifier.

Even ISIS’ abhorrent treatment of Christians and other non-Muslims is only an extreme reflection of what Muslims in general are doing to non-Muslims all around the world.  See “Muslim Persecution of Christians,” reports which I’ve been compiling every month for five years this month, and witness the nonstop discrimination, persecution, and carnage committed against Christians by “everyday” Muslims—from the highest authorities to the basest mobs.  Each monthly report (there are currently 58) contains dozens of atrocities, any of which if committed by Christians against Muslims would receive 24/7 blanket coverage.

While the media concoct any number of lies to dispel the Islamic nature of the Munich attack—the usual strategies, especially talk of “grievances,” are already being employed —the fact remains: for all the differences and tensions between Europe’s native and Muslim populations, the Christians being persecuted by Muslims are often identical to their persecutors in race, ethnicity, national identity, culture, and language. There is no political dispute, no land dispute. Nor do these disempowered and ostracized Christian minorities have any political power—meaning there are no Muslim “grievances” either.

So why are they hated and hounded? Because they are Christians—that is, non-Musliminfidels—and that’s the real reason Western people are being terrorized by Muslims, most recently (or at least as of this writing) in Munch.

Ugly or not, this truth, that mere Islam—not “ISIS,” “Salafism,” “Wahhabism,” or “Shiism”—promotes hate for and violence against non-Muslims will never be remedied until those in positions of leadership first acknowledge it.  And, with the notable exception of Donald Trump, they are very far from doing so.


[1] Lamenting how Muslims are often riled against “infidels” during weekly Friday mosque sermons in Egypt, a Coptic Christian once said,  “Let me tell you … we [Christians] know that every Friday is a day of death; that the day after Friday, on Saturday, we’ll be carried to the morgue!”

Video Of Shooter Shows Him Screaming: “You Fucking Turks!” Before Opening Fire

By Theodore Shoebat

A video of the shooter arguing with residents shows him screaming “You fucking Turks!” according to one report. Here is the video:

According to one German transcript of the conversation (which has been roughly translated), the words exchanged mean:

Residents: “Fuck you, you dog, you bled, you wanker.”

Perpetrator: “because of you I was bullied, seven years.”

Residents: “You’re an asshole.”

Perpetrator: “shit Turks.”

Perpetrator: “I am a German.”

Residents: “A wanker you are!”

Perpetrator: “I was born in Germany, in a Hartz-4-area”

Perpetrator: “I was hospitalized.”

Residents: “Yes treatment, you belong in the psychiatry asshole, stupid.”

Perpetrator: “I have nothing done … they shut up, man.”

Moments later, shots are heard.

There are conflicting reports: we know that the shooter says “I’m a German” but there are disagreements on whether or not it was the shooter or someone else on the balcony who says “fucking Turks!” So we will see who really said it. One translator rendered the discussion in the following transcript:

Balcony Man: ” You fucking Asshole you…”
Shooter: “Because of you i was unemployed for over seven Years”
Balcony Man: “you cunt you, you re a cunt!”
Shooter: “…and now ill have to buy a gun to shoot you, shitty Turks!”
Balcony Man: “A gun fuck off your head isnt right”
Shooter and balcony man shouting at each other.
Balcony man apparently to people filming: “Hes got a gun here, the guy has one”
Shooter: “Shit/fucking Kanacken (basically an offending Word for Immigrants)”
Balcony man to someone else: “Ey! Hes got a gun! He has loaded his gun! Get the cops here!”
Shooter: “Im GERMAN!”
balcony man: “you are a cunt, thats what you are.”
Shooter: “Stop filming!”
Balcony Man: “Youre a cunt is what you are!”
Shooter: “Stop filming!”
Balcony Man: “A Cunt is what you are. What the fuck are you doing?”
