This is how Islamic law begins. With threats of violence and intimidation that force everyone to fall in line. The actual totalitarian system just enforces what everyone has already accepted.
The process is not any fundamentally different in Syria, France or Turkey. Enough Muslims willing to engage in violence will force non-Muslims to submit to Islam. That’s the plan. It’s the plan behind September 11 and attacking a man eating a ham sandwich.
A 23-year-old man filed a complaint on the 8th of June after having been attacked the previous evening at 9.30 pm in a city tramway by two strangers. They struck him several times on the face because he was eating a ham sandwich. The two attackers, who claimed to be Muslims, said they were offended by this consumption of pork in front of their eyes before attacking the young man. A witness, a friend of the young man who was present when the incident occurred, has been interviewed by the investigators and has confirmed the reality of the attack. The two attackers, who fled, have not yet been found. The CCTV tapes in the tramway are currently being examined.
I’m sure there will be some talk of combating extremism that will come to nothing. And the cycle of Muslim violence will continue.
This isn’t about foreign policy. It’s not about French troops in Mali or Bali or anywhere else. This is about imposing Islamic values through violence. That’s the source of all Muslim violence, whether it’s terrorism or acid attacks or rapes. It’s about imposing Islam on non-Muslims.
