First it was Johnny Muhammad, now it was Cho Sueng Hui aka Ismail Ax. Precisely how many mass shooters have to turn out to have adopted Muslim names before we get it? Islam has become the tribe of choice of those who hate American society. I’m not talking about people who grew up as Muslims, confident and secure in their faith, good fathers, sons and neighbors. I’m talking about the angry, malignant, narcissist loners who want to reject their community utterly, to throw off their ‘slave name’ and represent the downtrodden of the earth by shooting their friends and neighbors.
This morning I read that the Virginia Tech shooter died with the name Ismail Ax written in red ink on his arm. The mainstream press doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what this might mean. To quote Indiana Jones, "Didn’t any of you guys go to Sunday School?"
The author is absolutely correct: those who hate America identify with Islam one way or the other. Back when the Soviet Union was around, it was Communism. Now they pick Islamism as their ideology. Many Muslims might not want to be associated with America-haters. But they are not the ones making that choice. America-haters identify with Islam, whether normal people who happen to be Muslim like it or not.
