“What do you think gave Muslims the idea that flying planes into buildings was a righteous act?”
“Islam. Religious faith. Though, according to some, it’s because they followed a “political” form of Islam, which doesn’t make any sense. In truth, it’s because 9/11 was as much an act of faith as it was an act of war. Nothing could get people to fly planes into buildings except religion, except the irrational belief that they would enter paradise after they crash. The idea that a so-called “political” version of Islam could get Muslims to kill themselves in order to mass-murder others discounts the motivational power of religion. Religion, not politics, leads people to fly planes into buildings.”
Below is page 109 of my new book, My Mohammad Cartoons Vol. 2, and it's the first page of my six page article that argues against those who routinely deny the religious identity of Islam. Islam IS a religion, and religionists need to make peace with that fact, as well as secular people who strangely pretend that it's a "political" form of Islam which motivates this enemy. Islam is a fusion of religion and politics, and the religious aspect of Islam is the key in getting Muslims to do what secular communists never would have, namely killing themselves in order to kill their enemies, for the ultimate religious goal of entering paradise My book has 100 of my Mohammad cartoons, with 40 of them created exclusively for it. It has two new articles by me, one on Free Speech being in the crosshairs, as well as this one on Islam being a religion, along with an edited, updated and improved version of my 2010 article, Calling Islam Islam, as well as some extras. It's 128 pages, square bound, and you can order it at The Bosch Fawstin Store.
