Toronto Star article revels in “diversity” of ISIS recruits - ignores ONE thing all share

Andrew LawtonRebel Commentator

Can you take the Islam out of the Islamic State?

The Toronto Star tried to. A 1,009 word piece by the Star's national security reporter, Michelle Shephard, manages to talk about the recruitment efforts of ISIS without ever mentioning Muslims or Islam, except for one reference to "Islam" in the name of another terrorist organization.

This is significant, because it's part of an effort by the media and the left to pretend that Islamic terrorists are not, in fact, Islamic--even when the terrorists themselves proudly proclaim that they are.

Shephard even wrote about the "diversity" of ISIS recruits, charging that there is no "common Daesh profile." about Muslim?

Now, use of the term "Daesh" to describe ISIS has been controversial in the past. Even though it's technically accurate, members of the caliphate have threatened to cut the tongue off of anyone who uses the word, because it's similar to a number of Arabic pejoratives. (In that case, Daesh, Daesh, Daesh!)

But for the Toronto Star, they use the term, by their own admission, to avoid saying "Islamic."

"That’s because the criminal gang that has murdered, raped and pillaged its way across the Middle East, while sending sycophants to slaughter civilians abroad, is neither Islamic nor an internationally recognized state," a previous article in the Star said.

If we can't honestly talk about what ISIS is, there's no way we can defeat it.

The media, except for The Toronto Sun and The Rebel, in this country are a disgrace to journalism. WHY do people read this rag….same people who watch CBC I guess. The stupidity is stunning.

So we have Tor Star, CBC and company as ISIC: the Islamic State In Canada. These smug lefties are so condescending that they know more than ISIS itself.

So who owns the Star? Follow the money and sees here it leads!

The Toronto Star—its editorial board and its primary journalists—promotes hate.
Hate directed at Western Civilization and Culture and its values.
It thrives on mendacity and willful ignorance.
It is, in short, evil.

The Tor Star is just another propaganda machine. I heard a while back that Islam is their only customer. The useless idiots will eventually pay heavily for their lies and deceptions against the people of Canada!

Daesh are Muslims who love and adore Islam and who actively and adherently act on the word of its teachings.

These are the same teachings every Muslim reveres, worships, and prays to everyday.

Daesh are first and foremost Muslims, worshiping it’s most exalted edicts; Jihad, Sharia law and other evil & vile suppressions.

A non-Muslim does not kill in the name of Allah Snackbar; only Muslims do.

Daesh lovingly consecrates the pedophile Moohamhead just as every other Muslim does.

This is something the Republican’s understand, and will clearly define in January 2017.
At this point, Jihad apologists; i.e. Liberals; will be expunged for sympathizing with the enemy.

In Canada we have three more years to go to rid ourselves of jihad-loving Turdo.

I expect the U.S. Republican administration to put stern and exacting pressure on Apologist and Jihad-enabler Turdo; and rightly so; for his transgressions of aiding, abetting, protecting, and encouraging the enemy.

Trudeau must pay the price for his naïveté.

Anyone can call themselves a journalist these days. It is pathetic that these people are allowed to influence readers with these ill conceived and poorly researched articles.
This idiot , Michelle Shephard is nothing more than an Islamic collaborator. A dupe, a useless and unintelligent human being allowed a pulpit from which to spew distortions and make believe fantasies about Islam.
Aside for a few phoney Canadian journalism awards. I can find no reference to her having post secondary education, particularly in the field of the Islamic faith and its history.
I have read observations and opinions of Islam from the likes of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams , Winston Churchill and a host of others . Michelle Shephard , you don’t have the wisdom and sagacity to be writing on this subject PERIOD !!!!
Just another arrogant liberal fool that has a venue to spew distortions and lies AND COLLABORATE with ISLAM.

It’s common knowledge today that Liberals and all of their counterparts are terrorists and terrorist supporters. There’s no arguing that. They’ve expressed it abundantly clear for a little while now.

The Toronto Star along with the rest of the socialist main stream media go out of their way to avoid associating Muslims with Islam. I have a difficult time understanding the reason for performing such mental gymnastics.
