It’s another day, another horrific story of extremist Muslim violence. We have become so desensitized to it that what might have previously shocked us beyond comprehension might barely disrupt our morning coffee anymore.
A gunman fully dressed in black stormed into a Zurich, Switzerland, mosque yesterday and opened fire, wounding 3 members as they were praying, reported CBS News. The Al-Hidaya mosque is frequented by Somali immigrants and has not experienced violence before.
As of last night, Zurich police were still seeking the shooter, and stopped short of calling the attack an act of terrorism. They were working to identify any potential link between yesterday’s terror attack on a Christmas market in Berlin and a corpse found at the Gessner bridge nearby.
What the media hasn’t reported is that this same mosque was accused of ties to extremism by German-Pakistani journalist Shams Ul-Haq as recently as October. Working undercover, Ul-Haq had infiltrated the mosque and described the Somali imams as preaching extremist ideas.
The mosque was run by the Forum of the Orient group, which Ul-Haq accused of hiding migrants and trading in illegal goods, Breitbart reported.
Obviously, religious violence in any form is wrong, but the liberal media may be pushing a narrative here that doesn’t disclose the complex truth.
Manipulating readers to be sympathetic to violence against innocent Muslims in their place of worship is much simpler than explaining a potential extremist component.
In recent years, tiny Switzerland has strained to accommodate Islam as hundreds of thousands of Muslims from Yugoslavia, Somalia and the Middle East have swelled its Muslim population. In 2009, a nationwide vote backed a constitutional ban on new minarets, according to Reuters.
The myriad incidents of Islamist violence do not require a direct link to be significant. Radical Islam IS the link, and until it is crushed completely, the terror will not stop.
