We are constantly admonished that the vast majority of Muslims believe in peace and tolerance, and abhor jihad terrorism, and that only “islamophobes” think otherwise. Yet here is the reality. When Muslim clerics actually took a stand against jihad homicide attacks, they almost immediately became the targets of a bombing. The Taliban and other jihad groups aren’t going to let Islam reform, and that’s one reason why we see so very few sincere attempts at such reform. It takes rare courage for someone to risk his or her life for what is right. Most Muslim clerics clearly don’t have that courage. This is what happens to those who do.
“Muslim Clerics Bombed Hours After Declaring Fatwa on Suicide Attacks in Afghanistan,” by David Brennan, Newsweek, June 4, 2018 (thanks to Lookmann):
A bomber killed at least seven people in an attack on a gathering of the country’s top Muslim clerics, on the same day the organization declared an Islamic ruling against suicide attacks.
The Afghan Ulema Council was meeting in Kabul on Monday when the attacker struck, detonating his explosives at the city’s Polytechnic University where the council was meeting, the Associated Press reported.
Around 2,000 members had gathered for the Loya Jirga, or council of elders, in a traditional Afghan tent erected to host the event. The bomb went off as the meeting was ending and attendees were preparing to leave.
