DEFENDING THE WEST
Muslim medical student is ‘happy’ recruit for jihad
Exclusive: Pamela Geller dispels popular myth about demographics of Islamic terrorists

The Telegraph on Saturday profiled Nasser Muthana, a Muslim from Britain who had been accepted to study medicine at a British university, but who then left the U.K. and joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. In a new jihad recruitment video, Muthana says: “Oh you who believe, answer the call of Allah and his messenger when he calls you … what gives you life is jihad.”

The story of Nasser Muthana once again gives the lie (as if I haven’t provided it in hundreds of other posts) to the idea that jihad is motivated by poverty and illiteracy. As common as it is, that assumption is anything but the truth. Well-educated and affluent, the jihadis show that the catalyst for jihad is a move toward the faith of Islam. Religiosity is the catalyst.

Rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow, chemical engineering students in Canada, heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America, herdsmen in Nigeria and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria.

No matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and the East and all points in between.

If the world were as concerned with the mass slaughter of non-Muslims by jihadists as they are about the fictional narrative of “islamophobia,” we might begin to defeat this enemy of humanity.

When the dhimmi mainstream media and political clowns like John Kerry tell you that jihad is about poverty or that Boko Haram (whose official name is the Congregation of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad) is off in some distant corner of the planet where such things happen, they are clueless or complicit. But ignorance is unacceptable. In fact, it is an outrage. There is no excuse for not knowing, or worse, for apologetics.

According to a new study, wealthy, better-educated Muslims are more likely to wage jihad.

It has been shown time and time again – whether it was the Muslim doctors who tried to blow up the Glasgow airport; or the wealthy, educated diplomat’s son who attempted to bomb a plane right out of the sky over Detroit on Christmas Day; or the group of 45 Muslim doctors who plotted Islamic terror raids in the U.S.; or the rich, well-educated Osama bin Laden; or the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers – that poverty does not cause terrorism, no matter what Kerry says. Jihad has nothing to do with wealth or education. It is a religion, a totalitarian and supremacist belief system.

Obama’s clowns (Kerry) and goons (Brennan) make laughingstocks of themselves (and by proxy, the American people) when, for example, they say that “jihad a product of injustices, economics, and ignorance.” In reality, the Economist reported back in December 2010:

The ranks of high-profile terrorism suspects also boast plenty of middle-class, well-educated people. The would-be Times Square bomber, Faisal Shehzad, boasts an MBA and is the son of a senior Pakistani air-force officer. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who stands accused of lighting a makeshift bomb on a transatlantic flight in the so-called “underwear plot,” had a degree from University College, London, and is the son of a rich Nigerian banker. The suspected suicide-bomber in this week’s attacks in Stockholm had a degree from a British university.

Also, “according to a 2008 survey of such studies by Alan Krueger of Princeton University, they have found little evidence that the typical terrorist is unusually poor or badly schooled.” And “new research from Queen Mary University of London has found youth, wealth, and being in full-time education to be risk factors associated with violent radicalization.” A Danish study in May 2014 found that “radicalized young Muslims are often what one would consider well-integrated: They are better educated than average and also perform better economically and socially, and will therefore be largely able to maintain a double life.”

The refusal to recognize reality will not spare us. Quite the opposite, I assure you: Such irrational denial will continue to exact an unfathomable human toll.
