Nice was the scene of the latest atrocity carried out in the name of Islam. 84 dead, 10 of them children, and more than 100 injured. Welcome to the new normal.
How is it that the maniac who carried out this massacre uttered “Allahu Akbar!” before police dispatched him to the sweet hereafter? Haven’t we been told repeatedly that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that this faith has zero-tolerance for violence or mass-murder?
But if Islam isn’t to blame, and the prophet Mohammed isn’t to blame and if Almighty Allah himself isn’t to blame, then how is it that almost every time we hear about an act of terrorism, it’s carried out by someone who is somehow affiliated with Islam?
Is it just cursed with really bad luck? What else could it be?
It has to be a run of really bad luck that this great religion of peace somehow attracts the worst maniacs to invoke its holy name and carry out the most gruesome atrocities, right?
