Andrew Bolt has an opinion column in the Courier Mail about the lies about Islam, and how it is time the lies were ended.
THE Prime Minister is wrong. I’m sure Tony Abbott knows it, too, but does not dare publicly tell the truth about Islamic terrorism.
Abbott insists Islam had nothing to do with last week’s shooting of tourists in Tunisia, bombing of Shia worshippers in Kuwait and beheading of a man in France.
“What’s being done by Daish (the Islamic State) has nothing to do with God, it has nothing to do with religion,” he claimed on Saturday.
Is he kidding us?
Yes he is.
The Islamic State, which claims credit for the two worst attacks and is linked to the beheading, has nothing to do with Islam?
For heaven’s sake, we can all read. “Islam” is in the very title of this terrorist outfit.
And if religion had nothing to do with the attacks, why has Tunisia’s president just ordered 80 of the country’s mosques to be closed in response?
Let’s end this polite lie, which blinds us to the steps we must take to defend ourselves.
