The mainstream media has, with its typical slick expertise, succeeded in avoiding yet another crucial phenomenon that explains what caused the terror attempt on Flight 253.
It keeps mentioning, in passing, how Abdulmutallab was “lonely,” but it never honestly explores why he was lonely.
In his 300 postings under the name “farouk1986” in an online forum, the 23-year-old Nigerian boy frequently complained about his loneliness and about how he had “never found a true Muslim friend.”
Question: Could Abdulmutallab’s loneliness have had something to do with his limiting his social life because of the Qur’an’s mandate to Muslims that they never make friends with infidels? (5:51) One needs to have a little distance, it appears, before getting in the mood, and following the instruction, to slaughter them. (9:5, 9:29)
Curious thing: Where are all the liberals, with their sacred cow of multiculturalism, up in arms with moral indignation about this lack of inclusiveness that Islam mandates — an inclusiveness that they self-righteously demand of their own society?
Where in the mainstream media is there to be found even one voice condemning Abdulmutallab’s practice of discrimination, and the theology from which he learned it, when it came to seeking friends?
If Abdulmutallab was instructed by his religion to not just avoid killing unbelievers, but to also make friends and have fun with them, would he have ended up on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 trying to blow himself up?
Hmmmmm. The mystery of it all.
