Kassam In The Spectator: After Sydney – Raheem Kassam on stabbing the messenger

If Kristina Keneally and her Labor cohorts were to be believed, it would not have been “Allahu akbar” the stabber in Sydney cried from the rooftop of a Mercedes yesterday. They’d have you think he was more likely to shout, “Raheem is Great!” before his violent spree, such has been their insistence that I am the real threat to Australia.

Today, a woman lies dead, and Australia once again sees the fruits of fundamentalist Islam and the perverseness that some mainstream interpretations of the Quran have bestowed upon Western nations.

A man of Turkish-Cypriot origin and an apparent Muslim convert is alleged to have murdered a woman and then attempted to stab others in Sydney’s central business district.

There’s no upshot to this. It’s yet another tragedy summoned forth by those unwilling to recognise the rot at the heart of one of the world’s fastest-growing and influential religions: Islam.
