UK PM Says Terror Attack Carried Out for Islam has Nothing to do with Islam

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

In other news, despite never having even visited the UK, I am announcing that Prime Minister David Cameron has nothing to do with the UK.

Also, despite not even being Christian, I would like to say that Cameron has nothing to do with the Church of England. Because that is apparently how things work in his universe.

Prime Minister David Cameron today condemned as “absolutely sickening” and “despicable” a terror attack on a shopping centre in the Kenyan capital Nairobi in which at least 59 people, including three British nationals, were killed.

“These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion – they don’t,” Cameron said.

He called it “an absolutely sickening and despicable attack of appalling brutality”.

“They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don’t represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world.”

Clearly they represent quite a few Muslims. Al-Shabaab has supporters in Somali diaspora communities around the world. One such community in Kenya was likely the source of at least some of the attackers.

Furthermore there are plenty of British Muslims in Al-Shabaab.

The Muslim attackers ordered Muslims to identify themselves, recite a prayer and then be excused from the massacre. Al-Shabaab repeatedly declared that they were acting in the name of Islam. Which is not surprising as they exist to impose an Islamic state.

Announcing that what happened in Kenya has nothing to do with Islam is a good deal like announcing that the USSR had nothing to do with Communism.

Cameron clumsily attempts to distinguish between terror and religion. But terror is a tactic. It can be carried out in the name of politics or religion or both.

Terror is not some isolated entity. Its goal is to achieve political ends by terrorizing people. Muslims rely on terrorism because it allows them to intimidate larger and more civilized societies and then force negotiations.

To deny this or to act as it there is some discontinuity between an ideology and the tactics used to carry it out, as if the two can exist apart from one another, is simply denial.

    Why does the west continue to elect idiots?

    • DB1954

      Damn that’s a good question.

    • Alan

      Good Question! Ordinary Kenyans shoppers are smarter than this politician. From the live feed on Kenya Mall Siege on BBC today –

      1302:

      A witness who survived the shopping mall siege said the gunmen were asking people to recite a Muslim shahada (testimonial to being a Muslim – “I testify that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is the Prophet of God”), according to Kenyan newspaper The Standard, seen by BBC Monitoring. The woman said she quickly memorised it with the help of a colleague. “When I mentioned the first word of the Shahada, they moved on. That is how I survived,” she said……

      Wonder what the above has to do with Islam?

  • Guy DeWhitney

    Every time I read an piece on politics without looking at the byline and then find myself at the end nodding and thinking that the author actually has sense instead of a partisan narrative when I do look for the author’s name it is virtually always Daniel Greenfield.

  • DNick

    Mr. Cameron, you seem to be halting the presence of Islamic terrorists by “appeasing” them, not actually trying to get rid of them.

  • cacslewisfan

    He should have at least waited for pro-Islam riots in to break out in England before reassuring everyone that Islam is the religion of peace. So sad. England has lost the will to live, and the ability to discern reality. Worst of all, in their determination to remain deaf and blind they enable evil.

    • DB1954

      Sadly it’s well past that over there.

  • DogmaelJones1

    Cameron is sounding more and more like a Swedish dhimmi with every passing statement. I think someone ought to start a contest to see who can come up with the best inane “Cameronism,” in the spirit of Sheridan’s Malapropisms (from “The Critic”), and email them all to 10 Downing Street. In fact, Cameron himself could be invited to enter the contest. He seems to specialize in this kind of thing.

  • Aizino Smith

    The Prime Minister is correct. This is not Islam. Muslims have name for Salifis to tell them apart form other Muslims. they are called Islami. But Muslims do not seem to be at war with the Islami so what difference does it make?

    None. To say these terrorists are no Muslims is a distinction without a difference.

    Zuhdi Jasser is a good Muslim. I would trust him. But in action and words very few Muslims are like him. No one like Jasser led a Million Muslim March. But Muslims his exact opposite did

    So what difference does it make to call the terrorists at Nairobi non Muslim?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Salafis are Muslims within Islam.

      • Aizino Smith

        Sure Salafis are Muslims within Islam like Sufis and Shia.

        My point is the Non Salafi, Ummah does not speak out or act against their outrages.

        More Muslims cheer the Salafis than jeer them. Salafis are such an existential threat that the fact there are good Muslims is inconsequential.

        • defcon 4

          “good muslims” like good nazis is an oxymoron.

          • Aizino Smith

            Probably true.

            I have had Muslim neighbors. Discussed it some with other people. For one thing they used video cameras to record school events like recitals. That would be a graven image. For another the women were unveiled. So they weren’t good Muslims in the eyes of Islami.

    What I learnt from my stay with a Muslim family
    David Cameron
    The Observer, Sunday 13 May 2007

    Asian families and communities are incredibly strong and cohesive, and have a sense of civic responsibility which puts the rest of us to shame. Not for the first time, I found myself thinking that it is mainstream Britain which needs to integrate more with the British Asian way of life, not the other way around.

    • J Simson

      Well think of the benefits. In Islam a man can rape his own wife. and the women of the infidel. not mention he can keep 4 wives and divorce them when ever he wishes.

      Quran 2:223:

      Your wives are a place of sowing of seed for you, so come to your place of cultivation however you wish and put forth [righteousness] for yourselves. And fear Allah and know that you will meet Him. And give good tidings to the believers.

  • Naresh Krishnamoorti

    David Cameron’s statement is a perfect example of the magnificent success of Islamic terrorism. Cameron is so terrorized by Muslims, that the first words out of his mouth, when something like this happens, is to praise Islam as a religion of peace, and to excuse the behavior of Muslims, while apologizing for the intolerance of Brits.
    The West is filled with cowards for leaders. Until we, like the brave Christians of Egypt and Syria, are willing to die for what we believe, we are done.

    • LindaRivera

      I don’t believe for one moment that Cameron is terrorized by Muslims. He is one spirit with Muslims. Cameron, like most Western leaders intensely HATE Christians and Jews. Anti-human rights, Freedom-HATERS, Cameron and other Western leaders ADORE Islam.

  • vladtepesblog

    I think Cameron ventriloquising the terrorists motives is dangerous to us, as it leaves us defenseless, and disrespectful to the victims. If we can’t identify the threat, we can’t fight it. On the plus side, everytime he opens his mouth another thousand people join the EDL.

        The political forces in England are consistently bent
        towards elitist’s security through enormous amounts
        of money attached to their worthless hides. The people

        Christianity has been sold out at the top…………William

        • LindaRivera

          Brits have been massively betrayed. UK ruling elites are horrible traitors who have sold out Britain to global Islam. But Britain doesn’t belong to the champagne socialist ruling elites, Britain BELONGS to the British people! They CANNOT give away Britain!

          • William James Ward

            Hopefully when the Brits take it all in they will expel
            all of the Muslims and reign in the elites but I think
            the people have to go back to church first.
            William

          • LindaRivera

            William, It is an absolute necessity that the military are sent in immediately to deport all of the Muslims in the many no-go Muslim areas all over Europe and Britain. In France alone, there are 751 no-go Muslim areas. Muslims are literally perpetrating a HOSTILE OCCUPATION of our countries and ruling elite TRAITORS are allowing it.

          • William James Ward

            British citizens must clean house and empty the
            castles of the high and mighty parasites, hold
            new elections and put ordinary citizens into a
            new government with patriotism and loyalty
            as the main precondition of service. There must
            be loyal British soldiers who could take over
            in a coup and restore England to it’s people.
            Islamists are occupying and are nothing short
            of colonizers………………….William

          • LindaRivera

            Britain’s situation is very desperate, as is all of Europe. Although Muslims are called immigrants, how can Muslims be called immigrants when they act like invaders and conquerors? Western leaders CREATED this horror.

            psyche, even after the second world war they were
            strong and formidable people, I was last there in
            1964. A plague has descended into Europe and
            unless the people rise up in National Pride the
            one world government will gain and the future will
            be lost. The abandonment of the Churches has
            precluded these curses and there is a way back,
            return to Christianity and normalize thinking, this
            will stop the slide to oblivion and strengthen the
            character of those who must restore law and order.

            A return to Christ and knowing that God is on their side would be significant. It is a battle between darkness and light, good and evil.

            Courageous non-Muslims who speak out against Islamization and Sharia law are viciously persecuted by Islam adorers-European and British ruling elites. Ruling elite freedom-haters HATE God, the Bible, Judaism and Christianity.

      Abu Said al-Khudri said: “The apostle of Allah sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the apostle of Allah were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Quranic verse, “And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess”. That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.” [The Quran verse is 4:24]

    In November 2008, the then Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the then Business Secretary Lord Mandelson, went to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states to ask them to fund our shaky economies by putting billions of dollars into the International Monetary Fund,(IMF).

    Why does the west continue to elect idiots?

    • LindaRivera

      They are not idiots. They are TRAITORS!

      The major reason British and European economies are terrible is because British and European ruling elites heavily colonized our countries with many millions of Muslims and financially provide for the Muslim immigrants and their huge families.

      Muslims have large numbers of children because as Muslims they are not required to work and are not expected to provide for their own children. British and Europeans are forced to financially provide for Muslims’ every need.

      In Britain, 50% of Muslim males don’t work and 75% of Muslim females don’t work. In a form of slavery, Muslims live for free off hardworking Brits. It’s the same in Europe.

  • Momcat49

    Islam is not merely a religion, but is a complex religious/social/legal/political system for organizing & controlling people both physically & mentally. Its religious, social, legal & political functions are inseparably intertwined–it is completely unlike Western religion, which has become in recent years something to which most folks pay mostly lip service & most politicians (except the far Right) pretty much ignore.
    The major problem that the West is having difficulty with & glosses over, is the fact that, even in the face of absolutely horrendous atrocities by Muslim “radicals”, there is deafening silence from the rest of the Muslim world. The West still CHOOSES to believe that the silent majority of Muslims are silently condemning those atrocities, even though common wisdom over many centuries has been, “Silence signifies consent.” Are we to believe that there is widespread fear among this “silent majority”? Or that they expect us to read their minds? Leaders like Cameron are nothing less than delusional & know nothing of the British Muslims for whom he presumes to speak (& even then, I doubt he is familiar with the principle of “taqqiyah,’, which allows Muslims to freely lie to unbelievers to further the purposes of Islam).
