Jurgen Todenhofer, who is believed to be the first Western reporter to live among Islamic State fighters and survive to share the tale, told al-Jazeera that he was surprised by the violence of ISIS. …
I know. Right?
Todenhofer somehow managed to get himself a 10-day vacation among the “non-Islamic” Islamic Statesmen, bringing his son (!?!?!?) along with him as a cameraman.
“I always asked them about the value of mercy in Islam (but) I didn’t see any mercy in their behavior,” Todenhofer said.
That’s not a 100 percent true statement, seeing as how Todenhofer and Junior both still seem to have their heads sitting on top of their shoulders — although whether Todenhofer’s head is actually attached is open to debate.
Nonetheless, let his statement stand.
The real “insight” in the interview came when Todenhofer started blabbing about ISIS’s plan to exterminate infidels.
“Something that I don’t understand at all is the enthusiasm in their plan of religious cleansing, planning to kill the non-believers. … They also will kill Muslim democrats because they believe that non-ISIL-Muslims put the laws of human beings above the commandments of God,” he said. “… They were talking about (killing) hundreds of millions. They were enthusiastic about it, and I just cannot understand that.”
For people who aren’t naive liberal journalists, it’s easy to understand what so confuses Todenhofer: ISIS is evil.
ISIS not only plans on killing every infidel they can find, but also any Muslim who doesn’t toe their party line, and any women or girls who don’t willingly submit to gang rape and slavery. If members of ISIS were familiar with Hollywood movies, they would all be twirling their mustaches and uttering “Mwu-ha-ha-ha!” after every “Allahu akbar.”
If the caliph of ISIS decided to become a rapper, his handle would be E. Vil. Darth Vader is cute and cuddly next to these people. Even the Joker would stay indoors if ISIS walked through his neighborhood. Batman would be calling Superman for backup.
Get the idea, liberals?
It’s said that the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince people he doesn’t exist.
The people who believe that are mostly on the Left, and it helps explain not only why liberals do things like kill babies, promote perversion and put animal “rights” ahead of people, it explains why they are so befuddled and helpless when confronted with real evil such as that represented by ISIS.
Todenhofer’s experience comes with a warning that the Islamic State is not weak, despite what you may have heard from a certain somebody in the Oval Office or his lackeys.
“Each day,” he said, “hundreds of new enthusiastic fighters are arriving.”
As many critics have said from the day Obama announced a campaign of bombing runs against ISIS, U.S. efforts are too feeble to stop the terrorist caliphate. Todenhofer concurred, suggesting that only an uprising by other Muslims could stop them.
Any day now.
Todenhofer’s adventures as Live Bait in Shark-Infested Waters, as comedic as they are, aren’t entirely without merit. At least he got on one of the Left’s favorite news outlets to tell his fellow liberals that, hey, ISIS is dangerous.
Who knows? Maybe it will even start to sink in.
