I’m a jihadist and I’m tired of not being given credit

In a controversial tweet and article posted on the day after the Paris atrocity, the group claimed France 'reaps the whirlwind of western support for extremist violence in Middle East'

It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic Jihadist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the Jihadists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.

It’s like a bad Monty Python sketch:

“We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it.”

“No you didn’t.”

“Wait, what? Yes we did…”

“No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons.”

“WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers.”

“No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so.”

“Huh!? Who are you to tell us we’re not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being.”

“Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that’s why you did this. We’re sorry.”

“What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians – disenfranchisement doesn’t even enter into it!”

“Listen, it’s our fault. We don’t blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out.”

“Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we’re not going to let you take it away from us.”

“No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame.”

“OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?”

    The man who puts “hard” into jihadist…

      Just noticed the misspelling, kb: thanks for pointing it out. I have just taken the “hard” out of jihadist.

    Capitalism creates the guns, the jihadists just pull the triggers.

      Capitalism creates the machetes, the genocidists just make the smacking down movements.

      • Steven Johnston said,

        It’s a violent system, as socialists we know this. There are atrocities like this happening around the globe on a daily basis. The jihadists are our enemies today but in the past they have been our friends. Just like the French were I suppose, nothing is fixed under this rotten system. Now I get that is part of human nature too, today’s friend can be tomorrows enemy but surely any attempts to bring an end to war and suffering will be futile as long as capitalism remains.

      Steven, pre Capitalism and as far back as the Pheonicians and probably earlier than that there was war. It seems a popular activity with the human race. You have local wars in cities with gangs over drugs and so
      on. People aspire to be criminals and murderers.
      Maybe there is a vaccination available!

        I agree that there have been wars since the dawn of time, over access to trade routes. Though there have been people, like Spartacus, that have tried to create a better World. The only cure is socialism. Surely all of us here believe that. You can’t bomb sense into people and socialism is of no use to a corpse.

    I’d wager they existed before trade routes. Whatever happened to the Neanderthals? Eh? Eh? We’re tribal. We’re easy with what’s familiar. We’re suspicious of what’s strange.

    Impressive to read people who know so much of the anthropological behavior of pre-history and of the period preceding classical antiquity. George Thompson’s Marxist book on the early societies of the Aegean might be of some supplementary use to you perhaps even Fraser’s Golden Bough; but it seems you are fully versed in that period in any case.
