In the aftermath of Monday’s Manchester Arena attack — in which 22 young people died at the hands of an Islamic suicide bomber — there will be plenty of attempts on the left to stress that the carnage is not representative of the Islamic religion.
And we should turn to Brigitte Gabriel for the perfect answer to the left’s claims.
Noted anti-Islamic extremism activist Brigitte Gabriel addressed the topic of moderate Muslims while participating in a Heritage Foundation panel after a Muslim law student complained that her faith wasn’t being accurately portrayed.
“We portray Islam and all Muslims as bad, but there’s 1.8 billion followers of Islam,” American University law student Saba Ahmed said.
Gabriel replied that “of course not all of them are radical,” before comparing Islamic extremists to other groups in world history, noting how the peaceful majority were irrelevant in each instance.
“When you look throughout history, most Germans were peaceful, yet the Nazis drove the agenda and, as a result, 60 million died,” she said. “Almost 14 million in concentration camps — 6 million were Jews. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.”
“On Sept. 11, we had 2.3 million Arab Muslims in the United States. It took 19 hijackers, 19 radicals, to bring the United States to its knees … the peaceful majority were irrelevant,” she added. “So for all our powers of reasons and us talking about moderate and peaceful Muslims, I’m glad you’re here. But where are the others speaking out?”
“It is time we took political correctness and threw it in the garbage where it belongs,” she concluded.
