Islamic Terrorists Strike Again Over The Weekend

On Saturday, 3 Islamic suicide bombers on the island of Bali in Indonesia walked into 3 different restaurants at the same time and blew themselves up, killing 26 people and injuring 101, including 6 Americans. You can watch a video of one of the bombings at the link above if you wish.

A Muslim group linked to Al Qaeda has taken responsibility for the attack. It is the same group that killed 202 people in 2002 at a night club in Bali. The groups name Jemaah Islamiyah, Their goal is to establish an Islamic state in Southeast Asia.

Have you heard anyone in the mainstream media refer to these killers as Islamic or Muslim. I haven't... Maybe I missed it, but I haven't heard it. Why will the media not use the term Islamic or Muslim in these stories when that is who the terrorists are. Is it political correctness? Is it because they do not want to bring justification to the link between Muslims and terrorism? What is it?

Islam remains a violent religion, as these bombings show. At its core is a fragmented, fanatical leadership that believes that if you are a non-believer...if you aren't a Muslim then there are one of 3 things that must happen to you. According to the Koran all non-Muslims must either be converted, made to pay a tax, or killed.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists have been Muslim.

For many many years the media has always made it a point of mentioning the word Muslim or Islam when any Muslim does a bad action. When they do some good they refer to them as Nigerian or Bengali. So your point is wrong. On the flip side the word Christianity or Judaism is never linked to any Christian group or person that does wrong. For instance the IRA. They were never referred to as Christian Terrorists or Catholic Terrorists. Everyone has a right to say what they feel, hence your blog, but be fair. The Palestinians are very nation orientated and never until fairly recently used the pretext of Islam to justify their actions. Yet they were always referred to as Islamic Terrorists, they fought though only for nationalism.
