After Manchester we now have the terrorist attack in London. My first thoughts are with the victims and their families in London. These terrorists are not motivated by economics. They are not motivated by Western foreign policy. Major Western countries are allied with major Muslim countries. The terrorist are motivated by a reactionary ideology. The terrorists hate what decent people like about our society. They hate our liberty and democracy. We must embrace our values in a defiant manner. Before we make a judgement about this terrorist act we need to know the facts first.
The Islamic State is a fascist state. It is a dictatorship. Women are regarded as the property of men. Gays are murdered. Slavery is practiced. Rape is sanctioned by it’s leadership. It is a puritanical regime where the joys of life are banned. ISIS is on the brink of defeat. The brave and freedom loving Kurds especially its women fighters have achieved great victories against ISIS. The Iraqi army are defeating ISIS. On the brink of defeat ISIS is attacking European countries.
Let free humanity embrace what ISIS hate freedom, democracy, feminism, reason and equality.
