ISIL and the Deadliest Mass Shooting in Modern American History

There are no ifs, buts, or maybes; this terrorist murderer coward who attacked a club in Orlando, Florida last night is the devil incarnate.  How else can a man go into a club and start shooting people indiscriminately; killing fifty innocent people and wounding fifty-three others?  The numbers of the dead and injured continue to be worse by the hour.

This killer committed his indescribable crime in cold blood; he planned it, carefully selecting his target to inflict the maximum pain, and executed it with deadly accuracy.  What volume of hate he must have been harbouring within him?  What ideology he believed in that penetrated his brain that made it easy for him to do what he did?

The terrorist called 911 and declared allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL); the same evil group that swallowed half of Iraq, one-third of Syria, and significant parts of Yemen and Libya.  ISIL is continuing its attempts to gain a foothold in Egypt’s Sinai, but is being denied that by the Egyptian armed forces.  Iraqis, Syrians, Libyans, and Yemenis are fighting this group and will defeat it sooner or later.  ISIL does not represent Islam and does not speak for Muslims.  It is an aberration that will soon be an ugly page of history and Muslims will have to learn how to fortify their faith to make sure that such aberration never comes back ever.

ISIL and its followers claim to be acting in the name of Islam.  Their twisted, sick minds use the name of “Islam” to justify their criminal acts.  Islam could not be any farther away from where those murderers claim to place it.  This fringe group (ISIL) gained its reputation through its vicious murders of innocent defenceless people using the most horrific means imaginable.  ISIL’s Muslim victims outnumber all of its non-Muslim victims put together.

Muslim leaders all-over the world have the obligation and own the responsibility of making sure that Islam’s name is not tarnished by the actions of ISIL and its mindless and senseless followers.  An outright war, to rid the world from this danger, must be waged against this evil that threatens to destroy humanity.  Any trace of ISIL and its ideology that is rooted in hate must be eradicated, and that is the responsibility of Muslims before all other human beings.

    In my view, ISIL in the eyes of many is CIA’s proxy army. Their misuse of the religion of Islam is a continuation of the Bin Laden Legacy, which they have created. So nothing new here.
    What is certain to follow, is more drone killings in AFPAK territory, and the “war on terror” can survive another day.

      There is no evidence to support the claim that links ISIL and the CIA, directly or indirectly. All that exists is a theory “in the eyes of many” as you put it. Such theory does not make it a reality. Whether that is true or not, it is irrelevant. What is relevant is to not hide behind such possibility and call on all people, especially Muslims, to do all that they can to confront ISIL and eradicate this evil from the face of the Earth before it destroys us all.
