We fixed your meme for you

We all agree that what happened in Brussels this week is terrible.

We all agree that killing innocent people in the name of any religion or ideology is an awful crime.

We all agree that there can be no justification for this sort of atrocity.

Terrorists like ISIS (AKA Daesh), Anders Behring Breivik, Dale Jones and Damien Hunt are the lowest of the low and their victims deserved none of what happened to them. Organisations like this one that incite extremist violence deserve our condemnation too.

Death is no respecter of persons and terrorists exist across many political and ideological platforms. So we’re sure that Britain First didn’t mean to ignore the vast majority of victims who were killed by terrorists who weren’t Muslims. Surely they don’t want to ignore the many slaughtered by right wing Christian groups or white supremacist militia in America. We don’t imagine they’d like to forget the poor victims of anti Muslim mosque bombings and street violence or the innocents who died at the hands of political terrorists in coups across the world that have absolutely nothing to do with religion.

So we fixed their image for them.

Defeating terrorism with… erm… more terrorism

This week began with the awful news that terrorists had attacked innocent people in Belgium. The extremist Islamist group, ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the terrible loss of life.

Like just about everyone else the Biffers at Britain First are outraged and disgusted by this cruel, callous act. No matter how fervently you believe in your cause there can be no justification for murdering innocent bystanders in cold blood. It’s not civilised, it’s not justifiable, it’s certainly not clever… and it’s not Islamic.

The Quran explicitly forbids the killing of non-combatants, even in times of war. Perhaps that’s why 70,000 Muslim clerics recently issued a joint fatwa against Islamic extremists. They give Islam a bad name and they offend the faithful and, in the eyes of those who believe in Him, they offend Allah as well. There is no blissful afterlife for murderers as any devout Muslim will tell you if you bother to ask them.

The real problem here isn’t Islam any more than the Northern Irish troubles were about Christianity. The real problem is terrorism – the unjustifiable belief that it’s OK to kill people to get your own way. It’s the belief that ‘might is right’ and that peace can be brought about by violence. That’s the real enemy – violence.

So how did the Biffers respond to this latest terrorist outrage?

By missing the point and advocating more violence and extremist terrorism in the sort of tit for tat that Ghandi referred to when he said…

“An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind!”

He would have recognised Britain First had they been around in his day. That other famous Ghandi quote could have been written for them…

“I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians but I like your Christ.”

With ‘Christian’ attitudes like this it’s not hard to understand what he meant.
