MSNBC Wonders if Islamic Terrorism is Really about Islam


So the title of this article might make it sound like MSNBC has reached a new low in political and cultural reporting… and they have. I kid you not Touré really did wonder if Islamic terrorism is actually connected to Islam…

Here’s Touré’s exact quote so you can join me in marveling at the sheer idiocy of the thought process.

“Is this really about Islam or about maniacs who twist the Koran to their own twisted sort of desires?”

Oh boy.

The same comment could be made anytime anyone does anything for any reason. Examples, was the Spanish Inquisition really about Christianity or about the maniacs twisting the Bible to their own desires? Was the WWI really about the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand or about the maniacs who used the event for their own twisted desires? Was the Civil War really about keeping the Union together or some maniacs who were twisting the constitution to their own desires?
