Society has no better defence against terrorism, than its people knowing the source of it. “Be one of those people.”


Before you read this post and view the video, please allow me to remind you that I follow this guidance from the Muslim philosopher, Abu Yusuf Yaqoob ibn Ishaq al-Kindi:

We ought not to be embarrassed of appreciating the truth and of obtaining it wherever it comes from, even if it comes from races distant and nations different from us. Nothing should be dearer to the seeker of truth than the truth itself, and there is no deterioration of the truth, nor belittling either of one who speaks it or conveys it.

I do not care that he was a Muslim. He was telling the truth. Likewise:

I put the caveat at the top simply to avoid the tiresome reactions I got for daring to acknowledge a truth that Winston Churchill had spoken. If you’re going to have a go at me for daring to quote one of your pet personae non gratae, don’t bother.

By the way, the four deaths and fifteen injuries resulting from yesterday’s terrorist attack in Stockholm bring the total so far for the first seven days of April alone to 292 deaths and 221 injuries. Sweden: the most generous nation on earth. A tiny nation of 10 million people who opened their hearts and their country with such welcoming humanity that they called their immigrants “New Swedes”. Of the whole 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, is there not one, not a single one, who will say, “Islam did this. I am ashamed”? If you are one of the 1.7 billion and you sense that Muslims are not doing nearly enough, you might want to consider the actions of Kacem El Ghazzali’s mother.

How does the humanity of 1.7 billion Muslims weigh up against the humanity of 10 million Swedes?
