The Islamist Minotaur 


The script goes like this:

A Middle-Eastern Muslim resident alien of a Western country, or a second-generation citizen or subject of Middle Eastern descent, is “radicalized”—either by the local Islamist immigrant community or through Internet sermonizing. Then, out his own sense of failure or unhappiness in the West, the failed youth seeks some sort of Islamist transcendence in terrorizing the very hosts who had welcomed his parents or himself.

What follows is also predictable.

The opportunistic terrorist picks a soft target—unaware partying youth in a nightclub or at a concert, unarmed police or soldiers, a Jewish center, throngs of holiday shoppers or celebrants, an office building or shopping center. He and other terrorists certainly have no desire or ability to storm NATO headquarters or an American Marine base.

Next, he pulls out a gun or some sort of hand weapon such as a machete or hammer, and goes on a rampage, slaughtering the innocent and defenseless, often in iconic fashion, as if his savagery is designed to be disseminated through iPhone video propaganda.

If well-organized, he rents a large van or truck to maximize his carnage by running down pedestrians.Occasionally, the more emboldened and nihilist killers strap on suicide vests to up their death toll and terror.

Amid the carnage, the Islamist terrorist chants some sort of allahu-akbar-like mantra, not too unlike the Aztec high priests’ incantations as they tore the living hearts out of their sacrificial victims on the high pyramids of Tenochtitlan. Law enforcement usually arrives too late to save the targeted victims, but sometimes in time to kill, wound, or apprehend a few of the terrorists.

The tragedy continues….

    “… is “radicalized”—either by the local Islamist immigrant community or through Internet sermonizing.”

    Or simply by opening his Koran, which is all the “radicalising” a believer needs.

    I still believe they should be legal game anywhere you find them.

    @ Jack “I still believe they should be legal game anywhere you find them.”
    The locals here have run every islambo who attempts to settle here out of the county. I would almost say they are legal game here.

    Well-written as always, but I think VDH has missed the mark, badly.
    The islamists waging jihad are not “radicalized.” They’re just believers. The radicals in muslim society are those who do not believe in the prophet, (piss be upon him,) and they are executed in the most horrible ways if they are discovered.

    The terrorists are most often NOT those with a “sense of failure or unhappiness in the West,” but those who are well-off, with seemingly good families. Ben Laden wasn’t some poor downtrodden waif, he was very wealthy and successful; so are a great many of the suicide bombers.

    ” He and other terrorists certainly have no desire or ability to storm NATO headquarters or an American Marine base.” You have to be kidding me, right? SMH.

    Not one of VDH’s pieces that I’ll be saving. He’s not even shooting in the right direction.

    “…a virtual war that we often deny even exists.” Rings like a Megiddoan bell, the peal of which increases in tone as it fades out of our hearing level.

    “The opportunistic terrorist picks a soft target—unaware partying youth in a nightclub or at a concert, unarmed police or soldiers, a Jewish center”

    What is utterly remarkable, and worth thinking about is the lack of Jewish targets.

    The word radical does not mean extremist;
    rather it is simply root or core – not off the reservation but fully embracing it.
