Radical Islamists: Equal Opportunity Murders

My Friend Pam Geller has often talked about the threat of rad­i­cal Islamists to the west but it’s worth not­ing that for ISIS if a Chris­t­ian or a Jew or an Athe­ist isn’t handy to kill any per­son who doesn’t wor­ship God the right way, their way, will do, even other Mus­lims:

Pakistan’s Ismaili Shi­ite com­mu­nity is reel­ing from an attack Wednes­day by gun­men that left at least 46 mem­bers of the reli­gious minor­ity dead in Karachi. The vio­lence is the first of its kind directed at the com­mu­nity amid esca­lat­ing mil­i­tant threats against the pre­dom­i­nantly Sunni Mus­lim country’s reli­gious minori­ties, and was con­demned by lead­ers includ­ing the Ismaili spir­i­tual head, the Aga Khan.

The Aga Khan expressed his shock and sad­ness about the attack on Wednes­day, con­demn­ing it as a “sense­less act of vio­lence against a peace­ful com­mu­nity.” The attack was claimed by a splin­ter group of the Pak­istani Tal­iban known as Jun­dal­lah, which pledged alle­giance to the Islamic State late last year.

Now in fair­ness to these ISIS sym­pa­thiz­ers they don’t con­sider them Mus­lims then they would con­sider me one and in their eyes are equally deserv­ing of mur­der as I am.

These killed peo­ple were Ismaili, and we con­sider them kafir (non-​Muslim),” Jun­dal­lah spokesman Ahmed Mar­wat told Reuters. Gun­men on motor­cy­cles report­edly boarded a com­muter bus car­ry­ing around 60 Ismailis and, accord­ing to wit­ness accounts, fired indis­crim­i­nately into the crowd.

But given that the Ismali have been around for cen­turies that’s pretty weak tea.

I got this info via a local Imam who sends this press release from the Ahmadiyya Mus­lim com­mu­nity of America

The Ahmadiyya Mus­lim Com­mu­nity USA con­demns in the strongest terms the May 13, 2015 ter­ror­ist attack on the Ismaili Mus­lim com­mu­nity in Karachi, Pak­istan. Early reports indi­cate at least 43 dead and 24 injured when six gun­men opened fire on busses car­ry­ing Ismaeli Muslims.

We are deeply sad­dened by this hor­ri­ble loss of inno­cent life and offer our most heart­felt con­do­lences to the vic­tims’ fam­i­lies,” said Wasim Malik, National Vice Pres­i­dent of Ahmadiyya Mus­lim Com­mu­nity USA. “We pray for the safety of all in Pak­istan dur­ing these trou­bling times.”

The Ahmadiyya Mus­lim Com­mu­nity USA prays for the departed.

These are good words and well spo­ken by the Ahmadiyya Mus­lim com­mu­nity that’s I’ve writ­ten about in the past. While in the US they are often in the fore­front because they epit­o­mize peace­ful Islam, in many Islamic coun­tries out­side the US they are not rec­og­nized as mus­lims, have been heav­ily per­se­cuted & are not allowed under Saudi law in mecca. As peo­ple who have been per­se­cuted they under­stand the pain of it.

But there is an impor­tant les­son here. As far as ISIS & rad­i­cal Islamists are con­cerned, the Ismali, the Ahmadiyya and any other Mus­lim that doesn’t toe their line is the same as my Jew­ish friend Pam Geller or my Catholic Brother Robert Spencer, ene­mies wor­thy only of the blade or the gun.

I sub­mit and sug­gest that we need to stop ISIS and all those rad­i­cals who cloak them­selves in Islam. Those who ISIS would send to their 21st cen­tury equiv­a­lent of the gas cham­ber will not find their own mur­ders and the mur­ders of their fam­i­lies any more accept­able if the mur­ders of Pam & Robert pre­cede them.

My Friend Pam Geller has often talked about the threat of radical Islamists to the west but it’s worth noting that for ISIS if a Christian or a Jew or an Atheist isn’t handy to kill any person who doesn’t worship God the right way, their way, will do, even other Muslims:

Pakistan’s Ismaili Shiite community is reeling from an attack Wednesday by gunmen that left at least 46 members of the religious minority dead in Karachi. The violence is the first of its kind directed at the community amid escalating militant threats against the predominantly Sunni Muslim country’s religious minorities, and was condemned by leaders including the Ismaili spiritual head, the Aga Khan.

The Aga Khan expressed his shock and sadness about the attack on Wednesday, condemning it as a “senseless act of violence against a peaceful community.” The attack was claimed by a splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban known as Jundallah, which pledged allegiance to the Islamic State late last year.

Now in fairness to these ISIS sympathizers they don’t consider them Muslims then they would consider me one and in their eyes are equally deserving of murder as I am.

“These killed people were Ismaili, and we consider them kafir (non-Muslim),” Jundallah spokesman Ahmed Marwat told Reuters. Gunmen on motorcycles reportedly boarded a commuter bus carrying around 60 Ismailis and, according to witness accounts, fired indiscriminately into the crowd.

But given that the Ismali have been around for centuries that’s pretty weak tea.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns in the strongest terms the May 13, 2015 terrorist attack on the Ismaili Muslim community in Karachi, Pakistan. Early reports indicate at least 43 dead and 24 injured when six gunmen opened fire on busses carrying Ismaeli Muslims.

“We are deeply saddened by this horrible loss of innocent life and offer our most heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families,” said Wasim Malik, National Vice President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA. “We pray for the safety of all in Pakistan during these troubling times.”

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA prays for the departed.

These are good words and well spoken by the Ahmadiyya Muslim community that’s I’ve written about in the past. While in the US they are often in the forefront because they epitomize peaceful Islam, in many Islamic countries outside the US they are not recognized as muslims, have been heavily persecuted & are not allowed under Saudi law in mecca. As people who have been persecuted they understand the pain of it.

But there is an important lesson here. As far as ISIS & radical Islamists are concerned, the Ismali, the Ahmadiyya and any other Muslim that doesn’t toe their line is the same as my Jewish friend Pam Geller or my Catholic Brother Robert Spencer, enemies worthy only of the blade or the gun.

I submit and suggest that we need to stop ISIS and all those radicals who cloak themselves in Islam. Those who ISIS would send to their 21st century equivalent of the gas chamber will not find their own murders and the murders of their families any more acceptable if the murders of Pam & Robert precede them.
