This article was published on 6/12/2016 and with the recent flurry of Islam inspired attacks in Europe I believe it was necessary to republish.
As a nation, as a people and as a culture we were attacked today. Islam, not radical, not extreme, but Islam killed 50 innocent people in Orlando, Florida in the deadliest mass shooting in American history by a single gunman and we have just learned that the death toll will climb. I do not believe in the myth of so-called “moderate Islam”. I believe it is more insidious. Many supposed moderate forms of Islam seem to only appear in the West. These “moderate” voices in countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia are all but excluded in Islamic theological discussions.
This could be what is called taqiyya, a justification for concealing true beliefs to further Islam.
What is the true message of genuine Islam? Why are we being lied to that Islam is a “religion of peace” when it has left millions dead & has been spread through conquests and not conversations? Muslims like to try and turn the table on Christians and dodge questions about its bloody history by complaining about The Crusades, however, when kept on the subject they refuse to condemn the verses in the Koran that call for death. My friend Christopher Logan, President of North American Infidels, points out and confronts may of these Muslim propaganda organizations. He did so recently here.
The Crusades: A Concise Overview
What is Sharia Law? To have a fuller understanding of what Shariah Law is and what it dictates, I suggest reading this: Thirty Shariah Laws That Are Bad For All Societies
Islamic scholars discuss Sharia Law
Sharia Law demands execution of homosexuals
Read the video description for the context of the video and who this muslim is.
Homosexuality: Islamic Law “Stone to Death”
2:55 into the video Canadian citizen Dr. Bilal Philips admits Islamic law calls for the execution of homosexuals. Of course he dances around that fact and the audience laughs that he is banned from Germany for agreeing with Sharia law.
We tend to gloss over studies and polls that show a majority of Muslims want to implement Shariah Law, and what Sharia Law calls for, such as, the execution of gays.(Let us not forget It also calls for amputating the limbs of thieves and the stoning of adulterers)
81% of Egyptians want strict Sharia imposed in every Islamic country76% of Pakistanis want strict Sharia imposed in every Islamic country49% (plurality) of Indonesians want strict Sharia imposed in every Islamic country76% of Moroccans want strict Sharia imposed in every Islamic countryhttp://www.worldpublicopinion.org/pipa/pdf/feb09/STARTII_Feb09_rpt.pdf64% of Egyptians said it was “very important for the government” to “apply traditional punishments for crimes such as stoning adulterers.”
72% of Indonesians Favor Shariah Law
Only think Shariah Law applies to only Muslims. Well, they think just the opposite. 74% of Egyptians who favor sharia also think it should apply to non-Muslims.
I can continue to post polls and studies about Muslims and Shariah Law but I’d like to finish this piece this year.
The left in the country not only refused to call the slaughter of 50 homosexuals in Orlando for what it is, they went a step further to blame guns. It is the inanimate object to blame and not the man that pulled the trigger with the head full of Islamic ideology.
Orlando anti-LGBT terrorist used an AR-15. The only scenario where civilian needs an assault weapon involves ninjas and an ancient curse.

1) Pressure lawmakers to ban guns.
2) Do not blame Islam or Muslims for any of this.

And the parade of insanity goes on.
I had to jump into the Twitter fray as well.
Tally for the day
Homophobia: 50 dead
Islamophobia: 0 dead
Liberals response: Don't be Islamophobic! https://t.co/WlAixLh8L6

The weak mealy-mouthed response by the man in our highest office, Barack Obama, only adds to the misconception that is moderate Islam is authentic.
“This is a sobering reminder that attacks on any American, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation, is an attack on all of us and on the fundamental values of equality and dignity that define us as a country,”
Now let us compare that strong, impassioned plea to exact justice by Obama to the responses of past presidents when we were attacked.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Yesterday, December 7, 1941 — a date which will live in infamy — the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.”
George W. Bush
I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!
Agree or disagree with those presidents on their policy or how they carried on at least there was a sense of resolve and naming the enemy for what it was. Obama’s response was political correct tripe that inspired nobody.
We do have a man, in Donald Trump, that has been criticized for not acting presidential. Today, he acted more presidential than our president with his condemning remarks.
We need to protect all Americans, of all backgrounds and all beliefs, from Radical Islamic Terrorism… I am going to protect and defend all Americans.
Many Homosexuals have embraced Trump because many, like Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos, believe Trump will protect gays from Islam and its barbaric system of laws.
As a gay person, the scariest words you will ever hear are "Allahu akbar."

We wanted you to be the first to know, after this horrific attack, we're officially endorsing Trump. Enough is enough.

Even Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report has had enough of the left’s weakness.

So, Americans, this is much more than the culture of political correctness that has infiltrated the speech of everyday Americans. This is about life and death. This is about leaving a better country to our sons and daughters. Islam is not a religion of peace. Islam is a cult of death.
