The poor homicidal maniacs. If only they weren’t “marginalized”. That’s the problem according the Tunisian Ennahda leader, Sheikh Rashid Al-Ghannushi. His Tunisian Islamists have been some of the biggest beneficiaries of the Arab Spring.
To the applause of the media. Now the media is eager to hear the old monster’s thoughts on why Muslim terrorists kill people.
Sheikh Rashid Al-Ghannushi, the 71-year-old-leader of the Ennahda movement, said many young Muslims turned to extremism after being marginalized by the societies they grew up in.
“They react, Western Muslims, because they think that, in ISIL [as the Islamic State was formerly known], they can find the solution to their marginalization in the societies they live in,” Ghannushi said.
The media, as usual, is eager to eat up Blame the West fairy tales. It’s not eager to report on what a homicidal monster Ghannushi is.
According to Ghannouchi, the Muslims now faced “Crusader America,” the “enemy of Islam,” and Saddam had taken a necessary step toward unity, “joining together two Arab states out of twenty-two, praise be to Allah.”
Ghannouchi also threatened the United States. Speaking in Khartoum during the crisis, he said, ” We must wage unceasing war against the Americans until they leave the land of Islam, or we will burn and destroy all their interests across the entire Islamic world.
After the war, Ghannouchi requested a U.S. visa. His request was denied.
He hasn’t gotten much better once he got into power. He just became slightly subtler.
In the video, which was first broadcast last April and re-broadcast October 9th, Ghannouchi said, “The secularists are still controlling the media, economy and administration. Therefore, controlling them would require more time.” He added that “the police and army’s support for Islamists is not guaranteed, and controlling them would also require more time.”
The Ennahda leader said, “We’ve met with Hizb ut-Tahrir, and the salafists, including Sheikh Abou Iyadh and Sheikh al-Idrissi.”
Abou Iyadh, also known as Seif Allah Ben Hassine, is currently wanted by Tunisian police in connection with the September 14th attack on the US embassy.
This is the monster that Western liberals chose to back. Does this marginalized monster want to kill all the Jews? What do you think?
Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi, of Tunisia’s equally moderate Islamist Ennahda Movement, said, “There are no civilians in Israel. The population—males, females and children—are the army reserve soldiers, and thus can be killed.”
Ennahda’s takeover of Tunisia has been described as the only “true success” of the Arab Spring.
The Arab Spring “will achieve positive results on the path to the Palestinian cause and threaten the extinction of Israel,” Ghannouchi said. “I give you the good news that the Arab region will get rid of the bacillus of Israel. Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the leader of Hamas, said that Israel will disappear by the year 2027. I say that this date may be too far away, and Israel may disappear before this.”
Yassin disappeared and Ghannushi will disappear too. Then he really will be marginalized.
