- Jihadist Terror Needs No Excuse – Ben-Dror Yemini
We are told that the massacre at a mosque in Sinai at which 305 people were murdered was because the Bedouins there are deprived by the Egyptian government and are just reacting. Is that an excuse for intentionally firing on hundreds of innocent people? The only sin of those who were murdered was that they were there, within the jihadists’ reach. More than 95% of the victims of jihadist terror are Muslim and nearly 70% are Sunnis murdered by Sunnis.
There are other deprived groups in the world. Aren’t there deprived Christians in Africa? Haven’t Jews been persecuted and deprived wherever they lived? Aren’t the Copts deprived in Egypt? Aren’t the Romani people deprived all over Europe? Aren’t black people deprived? Oddly enough, none of these groups has produced a sect engaged in organized, worldwide murder. (Ynet News)
