McINNES: Why They Hate Us

Bill Maher has been banned from Berkley due to his Islamaphobic beliefs. He’s been in the hot seat for weeks now because he dared to imply there may be an innate streak of violence within Islam that has nothing to do with our foreign policy. This is blasphemy among the left; they are happy to sacrifice one of their own to the Gods of political correctness if he strays from the path.

The “Why they hate us” meme is the myth that will not die. Suicidal maniacs are portrayed by both sides of the American political spectrum as rational adults retaliating against our transgressions. It’s America’s fault a soldier was attacked at Ottawa’s War Memorial. It’s Israel’s fault another Canadian soldier was killed a few days earlier in Quebec. As Glenn Greenwald told us, “…the violence has clearly identifiable and easy-to-understand causes: . . . namely, anger over the violence, abuse and interference by Western countries in that part of the world.” Simple, right? Just cut off Israel and cease all foreign intervention and the terrorists will leave us alone. All right, let’s check in with some countries that have tried this experiment.


India’s policy on Israel so far has been, “What’s an ‘Israel’?” Their foreign policy regarding the Muslim world has been, “Give them their own country.” Despite providing Islam with its own Israel however, most Muslims have chosen to remain in India just to fuck with people.

2008 alone saw dozens of attacks that left hundreds of Indians dead. On September 13th a series of bombs in Delhi left 30 dead and 130 injured. Two weeks later, Delhi was bombed again, leaving three dead. Then, in October of that same year, Mumbai suffered a series of attacks that left 166 people dead. You don’t hear Indians saying, “We brought it on ourselves.” We hear them saying, “We will take up strongly with our neighbors that the use of their territory for launching attacks on us will not be tolerated." The neighbor in question being Pakistan, of course.


The country India allotted for Muslims has a “Please burn in a lake of fire” policy when it comes to Israel and a “Kill all infidels” when it comes to the rest of the world. They’ve got mosques out the wazoo but with mo’ Muslims comes mo’ problems and they seem to get it way worse than we do.

In 2010, Sunnis from the Punjabi Taliban attacked an Ahmadi mosque because they decided the Ahmadis aren’t Muslim enough. (Wait, aren’t Punjabis Sikh?) The Ahmadis are known for agreeing with both Sunnis and Shiites, which is a one-way ticket to having your head chopped off by both sides. The attack left 94 Ahmadis dead and 120 more injured. The victims would like nothing more than the entire world to become Islamic and Israel to disappear in a cloud of smoke along with The Great Satan but that’s simply not good enough.

Are you seeing a pattern here? As Daniel Greenfield said in FrontPage Mag, “Sunnis and Shiites have been killing each other for over a thousand years. Declaring other Muslims to be infidels and killing them is also a lot older than the suicide bomb vest.”


As with young black men, the group murdering that group is that group. Nobody kills more Muslims than Muslims and it’s usually Sunnis killing everyone who isn’t Sunni. ISIS is Sunni and they’re motto is, “If it ain’t Sunni, it’s Shiite.” In Baghdad, in 2012, they killed a hundred Shiite in less than a month.

The only country in Asia strong enough to have any foreign policy at all is China and they hate our guts. They’ve been attacked regularly not because of their foreign policy or anything to do with Israel but because they refuse to give the terrorists their own state in East Turkestan. Hey Xi, don’t do it. It’s a trap. Just ask India.

China refuses to capitulate to the caliphate and has been shooting these knife-wielding maniacs every time they rear their crazy heads. In one day this summer, the police shot dozens of Muslim terrorists in Xinjiang as they stabbed, police, government officials, and random citizens. Officials in this autonomous Eastern region have yet to claim they brought this upon themselves. I’m not even sure there is a Chinese expression for “Why they hate us.”


This is another Asian country that refuses to give Muslims their own state. Because of this, Muslims have been systematically massacring random citizens there since at least 2004. The population is mostly Buddhist but there are Muslims too and both are regularly torn from their scooters and hacked to death. Some photos of this carnage recently surfaced and they are the harshest images I’ve ever seen in my life. If you have a Herculean tolerance of gore, click on this link. If not, take my word for it. The wrath brought down on a simple fruit stand clerk on his way to work is just as bad as any American infidel with a track record of violence in the Middle East.


Asia’s most Islamic country has over 200 million Muslims in it. That’s more than any other country in the world. This ubiquitous love of Allah is rewarded with constant bombings and attacks. The Bali bombings in 2002 killed 202 innocent people and the Marriot Hotel bombing killed 12 and injured 150 less than a year later. 


Last year, this cute little group of islands had their own September 11th. Muslim separatists attacked the town of Zamboanga City on the island of Mindanao. The military moved in so the terrorists took 200 hostages and used them as human shields while another attack popped up nearby on the neighboring island of Basilan.


Africa gets it just as bad as Asia does, even Muslim Africa. In 1997, Muslims bombed the archeological site Deir el-Bahri, killing 62 people. This attack devastated tourism and the economy in Egypt, which was bad for all Muslims, including the extremists. There was a backlash against the attack, so, after taking credit, the leaders of the Egyptian Islamisist organization Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya changed their minds and said it wasn’t them after all.

Can we stop making apologies for these guys and just admit they’re dicks? And it’s not a small minority of bad apples. Our own Ben Shapiro estimates it’s more like 800 million, which is well over half.


In 2013, the Islamic group al-Shabaab stormed the Westgate shopping center and opened fire on shoppers killing 67 and injuring 175. Kenya did have a couple guys in Somalia but they were just trying to protect Kenya. You try living next to that place. Even Somalia hates Somalia.


Somalia is nearly all Sunni. This is the kind of situation ISIS is going for so they must be free of problems, right? Nope. In 2009, a suicide bomber in Beledweyne blew himself up along with 35 other people including the Somali security minister. It’s hard to determine what the problem is over there but the simplest answer is, Somalia isn’t Muslim enough for the Muslims there. This is the same country that cut off Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s clitoris. Was that too moderate? Should they have removed the entire vagina?

At this point, you start getting what editors call, “example exhaustion.” After 10 examples of innocent countries being attacked by Muslims, you start to go, “Okay, I get it. They don’t hate us because of our foreign policy or Israel. They hate us because we are non-believers.” Unfortunately, the Western world’s appetite for excuses is as inexhaustible as the terrorist’s demands. Liberals refuse to blame the extremists even when the extremists themselves are trying to take credit. We’ve become an Onion sketch.

If you really respect Islam, open your ears and listen to what it has to say. It’s telling you to fuck off. Not because of what you’ve done but because of what you believe. Appeasing them is not going to change that. It’s going to fuel the fire. The only way we’re going to be able to combat terrorism is to stop denying reality and accept that tolerance of intolerance isn’t how we go forward. It’s how we go backward.
