Excusing Jihad In Boston

Robert Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad. His latest book, Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We're In, is now available.


dzhokhar-tsarnaev-12Dzhokhar Tsarnaev woke up and told investigators that he and his brother Tamerlan were waging a lone jihad when they set off two bombs packed with nails and ball bearings at the Boston Marathon. He said his brother came up with the whole plot out of a desire to “defend Islam.” And as if on cue, the mainstream media began an all-out effort to obscure and downplay the significance of the now indisputable fact that this was a jihad terror attack – an effort as energetic and inventive as their previous attempt to convince the American people that the bombings had to be, just had to be, the work of “right-wing extremists.”

Imagine for a moment if the attackers had indeed turned out to be “right-wing extremists.” Imagine that they were even that mother lode of Leftist media fantasy, Christian “extremists” – think Robert DeNiro in Cape Fear, his body tattooed all over with Biblical quotes, muttering about the wrath of God and determined to terrorize not just a single family, but an entire city, an entire nation. Just to make it really interesting, imagine that the people these Christian terrorists happened to kill with their bombs were Muslim.

If the attackers had been people like that, the Atlantic Wire would have run a piece entitled “The Boston Bombers Were Christian – So?” It would have complained that “we confuse categories – ‘male,’ ‘Christian’ — with cause,” and cautioned against stereotyping all Christians and painting Christians with a broad brush.

Meanwhile, Chris Matthews would have had on an FBI agent who would have asked about the bombers, “Where was their inspiration? Where did they get the guidance?,” leading Matthews to respond: “Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here.”

Also on MSNBC, Martin Bashir would lament about how these Christian bombers were “burying the ‘peace, compassion and kindness of the Bible.’” A local Muslim leader at a prayer service would have cautioned: “We must be a people of reconciliation, not revenge….The crimes of the two young men must not be the justification for prejudice against Christians….It is very difficult to understand what was going on in the young men’s minds, what demons were operative, what ideologies or politics or the perversion of their religion.”

If the Boston bombers really had been Bible-quoting Christian fanatics, none of that would actually have happened at all. Instead, the media feeding frenzy would have been intense. The air waves would have been full of earnest examinations of how the Bible is full of material that constitutes incitement to violence, recommendations of what the churches and Christian leaders must do to make sure that this kind of attack never happens again, and story after story about bright, attractive young people who got mixed up with church groups and ended up with their lives and the lives of everyone around them in ruins.

But of course, the bombers weren’t Christians; they were Muslims, acting explicitly in the name of Islam. Media analysts, when they have deigned to take notice of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s statement at all, have scratched their heads in puzzlement over how he and his brother could have gotten the idea that murdering innocent people at a sporting event could possibly constitute any kind of defense of Islam. However, they wouldn’t be so puzzled if they knew that the Qur’an exhorts Muslims to use the “steeds of war” to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (8:60) – and that al-Qaeda has recently recommended bombing sporting events as a nicely effective way to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.

The mainstream media has no interest in how the Qur’an may incite those who believe it is the word of Allah to commit acts of violence against those who do not so believe. And so it was that the Atlantic Wire’s story was actually about why it scarcely mattered that the bombers were Muslim, and Chris Matthews was declaring that the bombers’ inspirations and motivations made no difference, and Martin Bashir was praising the virtues of the Qur’an, and it was Sean O’Malley, the Cardinal Archbishop of Boston, who cautioned against taking revenge and decried the “perversion” of Islam that led to the bombings.

It is hard to say why Cardinal O’Malley was so confident that the bombers were perverting Islam, despite the Qur’an’s many commands to Muslims to commit acts of violence against unbelievers (2:190-193; 4:89; 9:5; 9:29; 47:4; etc.). It is likely, however, that he simply believes what he has been told about this question: that Islam is a religion of peace, and that those who commit acts of violence in its name are twisting and hijacking the beautiful, peaceful teachings of the religion.

And that’s the problem with this pervasive media denial. The Atlantic Wire asked why it mattered that the bombers were Muslim. It’s a fair question. It matters because the fact that they were Muslims is not incidental to what they did. There’s this thing called “jihad,” you see. It’s an Islamic doctrine involving warfare against unbelievers. The likelihood is that some others might want to wage jihad against Americans as well. And so the more we know about it, the better prepared we can be to defend ourselves.

But the more we lie to ourselves and each other about what this jihad is really all about, the more we enable people like Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. We cannot possibly defeat an enemy whom we refuse to understand, refuse to study, refuse to listen to because he explains why he is our enemy in terms that we can’t bear hearing. That’s why this media obfuscation is nothing short of criminal. And it will bear much more fruit of the kind it bore on the sunny day of the Boston Marathon.

    The most important thing in war and we are at war with Islamic terror is know your enemy. They just had a cheering in Gaza for the Boston horror with the traditional candy in the streets when Islamic terror gains one hit on the West. The last thing one has to do is find good things about the enemy. The only good thing an enemy can do is stop being an enemy. We did not chose to be enemies, Islamic terror did.

    • WildJew

      Are we at war with Islamic terror or are we at war (not of our choosing) with Islam itself?

      • Poupic

        Islam itself promotes Islamic terror as in:” A Jew is hiding behind that tree. Go and kill him!” Yet not all Muslims are part of Islamic terror.

        • WildJew

          Good point. But not all Germans played an active part in Nazi atrocities. Still, we went to war against all of Germany.

          • Poupic

            In fact no so! Some Germans, (very few) were in the underground against the Nazi regime. The war was against Nazi Germany, not against Germany itself according to your strange definition. The problem is that too few Muslims raise their voices against Islamic terror in fact tacitly approving of it by their collective silence.

          • WildJew

            Are you sure? Didn't the United States declare war against Germany (the nation of Germany), not Nazi Germany?

          • Poupic

            The USA never had anything against Germany in the same way the USA has nothing against Islam. Islamic terror is at war with the free world and all anyone can do is defend against Islamic terror. Playing semantic games is what Barack Hussein does and much better than you because of his declared soft spot for Islam.

          • WildJew

            I think that is what R. Spencer if fighting, is this playing semantic games. Again I must ask you, did the United States declare war against Germany or Nazi Germany or Nazism? You say the USA never had anything against Germany. That's plain bunk. Isn't it? I have something against authoritative Islam (the Islam of the prophet Muhammad), don't you?

          • Poupic

            Of course I am not crazy about Mohammed otherwise I would be a Muslim. I have nothing against Islam except for it’s treatment of Jews and any non Muslims. But it doesn’t mean that I am at was with Islam. I am suspicious of mosques because they are recruiting centers for Islamic terror. It is a big dilemma exactly as it was with the war with Germany in WW II. Germany today is not Germany of the Shoa, far from it! Tomorrow Islam will be the same Islam it is today. I resent Muslims who claim to be part of the religion of peace yet are silent about Islamic terror. They need to make a swell of protest against Islamic terror. But this is difficult for them because many of the mosques are financed by US ally Saudi Arabia just supplied with the latest in armament.

          • Drakken

            Well islam is at war with us, and we had better figure that out pretty damn quick. islam needs to be eradicated to the last mosque and imam, period.

          • Poupic

            I hear you loud and clear. Who else are you at war with?

          • SCREW SOCIALISM

            Who else is at war with the US?

          • Poupic

            Actually I posted mistakenly “Who else are you at war with?“ I meant to post who else is Islamic terror at war with.
            As far as I know, today only Islamic terror is at war with the Western world and this includes the US.

          • Walt

            Saying they are the religion of peace doesn't necessarily make it so! Remember – the Qur'an promotes lying to further 'the cause' and none are immune from their reading of that book; evil as it may be.

            Unless we get a handle on this problem of overlooking the evil of Islam in our society (and the world), I am seriously afraid we are going to end up with citizens taking matters into their own hands and forming vigilante groups – I am very serious about this folks.

  • truebearing

    To ask why it matters that the bombers were Muslim is an admission that the writer is profoundly uninformed and equally stupid. Any half-wit can see that radical Islam –or dare I say "true Islam" — is at war with us and intends to kill all of us for the crime of existing in the world they insanely believe they own. Any idiot can see that with each new terror attack, the pattern of malevolence within Islam grows more incontravertible, even for the terminally slow.

    David Sirota, Salon's resident moron –well, one of the redundant residents — was hoping the bombers would be white. He got his wish, sort of, but his ironic victory was plagued with the pesky truth — once again, the terrorists were Muslims. It seems his imbecilic racial theories are crushed under the endless evidence that continues to indict Islam, and prove him to be a malicious fool.

        As more muslimes subvert and infiltrate the FBI, that list will be changing, until one day there aren't any muslime terrorists on that list at all, instead, there will be a list of blasphemers of islam.

  • Excalibur

    The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

    Check out some of the murder verses in the quran

    "I shall terrorise the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them, because they oppose Allah and his apostle." (Qur'an 8:12)

    "Paradise lies under the shade of swords" (Sahih Bukhari V4B5N73)

    "Muhammad said, ‘You are commanded to carry out jihad against the unbelieving infidels until they submit to Islam' " (Qur'an 47:4)

    Quran (9:111) Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Qur'an: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.

    Quran (2:191-193) – "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]…and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

    Quran (2:244) – "Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things."

    Quran (4:89) – "They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks."

    Quran (8:39) – "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"

    Bukhari (52:220) – Allah's Apostle said… 'I have been made victorious with terror'

    Tabari 9:69 "Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us"

    Ibn Ishaq: 990 – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone's head while screaming 'Allah Akbar!' is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.

    Now what muhammad did :

    Al-Nadr bin al-Harith – KILLED

    The lefty PC MSM seems determined to bury their collective heads in the sand. It is not an accident that Muslims are so often self radicalized. It is an absolutist faith that preaches violence as part and parcel of the faith. It's sickening to watch Obama trying to explain the different 'jihads'. To a Muslim there is only one meaning: Holy war against the infidel!

    Maybe Cardinal Omalley believes that by saying the terrorists perverted Islam, he is protecting moderate Muslims from a backlash and that he is convincing Muslims that terrorism is a perversion of their religion. I think he's totally off base in his thinking but it is likely that is what he's thinking.

    • davarino

      Ya, Saen Hannity is pretty much saying the same thing. We need to stop talking about radical islamists, because islam is radical, and its in the book. They arent perverting islam with terrorism, because its all in the book. Start calling it what it is and let them defend it. Make them come out of the shadows and make them defend it, instead of us defending it for them. Why are we allways the nice guys, make them defend their "religion of peace", and it will sound so ridiculous it will fall flat.

      I saw Awad from CAIR on FOX's O'Reilly the other night trying to defend islam. They must really be feeling it if they have to go on O'Reilly's show.

      • ltcdmward

        I am reminded of the (so-called) Protestant Reformation, where the main driver seemed to be that the monopolistic Catholic (Universal) Church was "protested" for beliefs and practices that were not congruent with what was actually in the Bible. The protesters then started there own denominations. And that's still going on (i.e. the attempt to bring beliefs and practices more in line with the main authoritative text, including promulgation of non-affiliated or non-denominational "churches" to avoid institutionalized dogma).

        God, the real One, help us as Islam is seeming to go through its "reformation" as it more aligns itself with what's actually in its fundamental authoritative texts and "believers" behave accordingly.

        • defcon 4

          The periods during which unbelievers weren't persecuted in islam is fleeting. Timur lane (Tamerlane) himself slaughtered muslimes en mass who were lukewarm to the cause. Internecine muslime warfare has been fought over the humane treatment of the kufr and muslime leaders deposed because of it.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    The consternation driven by Omalley's words comes from the fact that he or his advisors
    know flat out that it is derigueur to suck up to Islam for interfaith necessities playing out
    in the forming of a one world religion. Excuses will flow like water from the infected Churches
    concerning this new playbook for the faithful. We know we do not worship the same God
    and we know the Islamists are evil and we are admonished to have nothing to do with
    evil. I would be astonished if Cardinal Omalley has not been informed by what is in the
    Koran but see how it will be excused, the ideation that it is not believed today is belied
    by the growing number of dead and injured, the PC infection grows larger and goes deeper
    every day…………………………………..William

      Hmmm. The "PC infection" — hopefully a temporary malady that can be arrested with, what, antibodies — is weakening us from effectively combating what could be a terminal cancer. Oh that enough antibodies would start multiplying — fast. Would that the Boston event ramp up the process, but the "snuffers" are still at work.

  • marios

    Muslims kill 100,000 Christians each year. Where is Vatican reaction? Where is Christians leaders saying "enough is enough"? Leftists/liberals are accomplices of Islamo-fascists. MSM controlled by them are accomplices of Islamo-fascism and responsible for Islamic terracts against non-Muslims as well. What is different between German Nazism and Islamo-Nazism? Not much at least goal the same: world domination. " Islam will dominate in the World" are Muslims on rallies the most popular posters in any Europe country and around the world. They say" You love life but we love death. We will win!". Our WH administration policy actively support Islamization our country. Can you imagine that during WWII DFR allowed and support immigration of Japanese and Germans to USA? But Obama and Dem's establishment do it.

  • marios

    Millions Muslims came for last 5 years. Obama & Co support mosques building, on local level in blue states Muslim students have special rooms for praying, etc (in IL, for instance). Islamists finance Dem's party directly and indirectly. Muslims/Arabs lobby in Washington is the most powerful. MSM keep silence on all of such facts as they on their payroll (or Dem's one which is almost the same) as well. Without support of MSM in Germany 1930th Hitler would not be able to seize Power. It was tragical mistake that MSM most supportive Hitler members were not on the bench with Nazis war criminals on Nurnberg process. That is why our MSM scoundrels (see names in the article above, for instance) feel no responsibility.

  • Jack Woodward

    Robert, you hit the nail on the head about why the media is afraid of accurate reporting. To do so would be an indictment of Mohammed himself since Muslims seek to emulate his words and works.

    It is all about the fundamentals, Christians seek to be like Jesus in words and actions, and Muslims seek to be like Mohammed http://mywtfblog.com/2013/02/abcs-of-fundamentali

    Mr. Spencer – again – is completely right in stating the obvious drive for the Checzhen’s terrorist spree: their Islamic duty to wage Jihad against infidels.

  • Ian

    The arguments that Islam is genocidal and obsessed with conquering the world don’t make any sense. If Islam commands all Muslims to kill infidels, then why did 9/11, Islam’s first great attack upon America and the West, come from a bunch of Saudi citizens and not Muslim-Americans who had been here for years? Why did Islam wait so long, until the 2000s, to launch that attack? Why didn’t a bunch of Muslims living in America hijack airplanes and crash them into WTC in the 80s or 70s? Why didn’t a bunch of Muslims living in America blow up bridges and buildings in the 60s and 50s? Why didn’t a bunch of Muslims living in America (not many of them at the time, but still enough to blow things up) during WWII launch attacks on the home front, to help Islam’s closest friend, Nazism?

    • defcon 4

    • Pen

      Ian you miss the point entirely. If you don't accept that Islam is genocidal and obsessed with conquering the world despite the incontrovertable proof shown on countless occasions, then you need to wake up before it's too late. They are MUSLIM attacks, born of the revival of totally focused and fanatical Islam. It doesn't make any difference about the timing, the scope and the actual carrying out of the acts. How many more such attacks would have to happen before you would be convinced?

      You should read the excellent material written by Robert Spencer, very informative and in words we can all understand.

    • reader

      This is like asking why the Nazis did not kill off all the German Jews by the end of 1933. Would you contend that the Nazi regime was not genocidal and not obsessed with making Germany and Europe Judenrihne?

  • Marty

    islam is a brutal totalitarian death cult, an observation easily confirmed by the 109 verses in the koran that insist muslims go to war against unblievers. For the mainstream media to ignore or attempt to placate sociopathic islamists is silly.

    Munich Olympics Massacre: Files Reveal Neo-Nazis Helped Palestinian Terrorists
    By Gunther Latsch and Klaus Wiegrefe
    http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/files

    Forty years ago, the massacre of Israeli athletes and coaches overshadowed

    Too many of our fellow citizens are in cahoots with the Jihadis in one way or another. Most are too stupid, unaware that Jihad exists. They just aren't paying attention and dont know, dont care. Others are aware of the bad news about Jihadis killing civilians wordwide, but have been told Islam is the religion of peace and Muslims are nice people – "They aren't all like that"- and absolutely dont want to hear anything different to upset their preconceived notions (O'Malley et. al.) Others, leftists and Muslims or sypathizers know exactly what is happening and are complicit and lie to cover it up (Obama, Hillary, Big Sis, Keith Ellison etc.) and are protecting and facilitating Jihadis every chance they get. GW Bush called Islam "the religion of peace", where was his head? Paste the following in your address bar and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SoXs-0_rHY&fe

    For Ian.
    1."The arguments that Islam is genocidal and obsessed with conquering the world don’t make any since". Really? Out of Koran:
    War is ordained by Allah, and all Muslims must be willing to fight, whether they like it or not. 2:216
    "Wage war on the infidel and kill them until Islam is dominant” (Koran 8:39)
    80% of Koran is alike of those two.
    2.Muslim countries mostly poor, filthy with very high % of population illiterate, etc. Only after Westerns opened oil there, built oil plants and all infrastructure petrodollars make them wealthy and mighty, especially Saudi Arabia and some other one. Than Muslims nationalized what was built by Westerns and wealth flowed into Kings family pockets. It wealth blooming using what Westerns brought for them led to starting Jihad against Western civilization and to reach their goal to build World wide Caliphate. it's happened in 1960th. Muslims immigration to Europe and later to US mostly started the same time.

    3.Why 9/11 terror acts was made by Saudis mostly but not American-Muslims? a. American-Muslims was only 1% of population and statistic is that when Muslims reach 2.5-3% they started actively demand privileges, 5% -they become violent, etc. b. Mayor Hassan Nidal lived here from 2 year old age, enough American Muslim, killed his 13 people and wounded more than 30 in Fort Hood 3 y ago. Many other American Muslims (hundreds) plotted terror act were caught by FBI after 9/11. c. ME Muslims fought on side of German Nazis during WWII. German Nazism and Islamo-Nazism, Islamo-fascism have the goal of world domination. Islamists openly repeat it "Islam will dominate in World", "You love life, we love death. We win".

      Islamo-Nazism……that, describes the Boston Bombers terrorist ideology.

      Number 2 and 3 do not make sense Marios. If Islam commands its followers to kill infidels and take over the world and build a World Wide Caliphate, then why did Muslims wait all those centuries until the Western discovery of oil to start to implement it? Because the Muslims planned it that way? They did not even know about the oil themselves until Western geologists told them about it. And if Islam commands Muslims to wage war on infidels, why should it even matter what percentage of the population is Muslim? When should the urgent need to kill infidels be halted by anything as absurd as the fact that Muslims make up only 1% of the population?
      The fact that 2 and 3 make no sense make me wonder about how acurate 1 is…80% of the Koran says that Islam is about waging war against infidels, and yet a Muslim won't feel the urge to wage that war until Muslims make up 5% of a population?

        Fact is Ahmed, there aren't many infidel/kufrs left in islamofascist states to persecute, kill, rape and murder. But, we've already noticed muslimes aren't above traveling to non-muslime states to find targets — as events all over the world have made plain.

    How does the MSM feel about Mom Tsarnaeva shoplifting $1500 worth of goods from the Lord and Taylor department store in Boston when she was in the U.S.?

    I guess their video cameras gave them a little payback.

    I propose a thought experiment: Imagine that everybody in the West converted to Islam. Would Islamic terror end? It should, right? Well let’s have a look at a an existing lab with exactly the proper experiment going for a few years by now, Iraq. Sunni’s are blowing up Shia mosques with believers inside and Shia are blowing up Sunni mosques with believers inside. There is no antidote to Islamic terror possible. Islamic terror will always be with us forever just like the weather is with us, always. When it gets cold you wear a sweater and you have to continue to be vigilant about Islamic terror, always and forever.

  • Pen

    Robert is absolutely right – those of us who are aware of what Islam teaches and what Jihad is have a battle to fight on two fronts, against Islam and against the useful idiots among us. No amount of understanding the motivation of the Tsarnaev brothers will give any closure to the victims and their families, and we should be relentless in holding our deluded officials to account for their failure to get the real message these psychopaths are sending.

  • Rosa

    The article is not enterely erroneous. But, from my point of view, in EVERY debate about this case EVERYONE is MISSING another very important fact. Dzhokhar not only mentioned Islam. Dzhokhar mentioned the Afghanistan and Irak wars. THIS IS THE POINT THAT NOBODY HERE, NOBODY THERE AND NOBODY IN THE MEDIA WANTS TO TAKE. THAT IS THE REALLY MISSING POINT. Watch out! You have to got the entire picture, and it’s complex… and painful. It’s a pillow not easy to swallow for USA, I’m afraid.

  • Alienated Muslim

    Thanks for quoting the verses while failing to understand.

    Jihad is defensive not offensive. ‘And fight in the way of Allah those who fight you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits.
