An item was posted in a German publication on Christmas Day that should dispel the notion that Islam is the religion of peace. Its headline, when translated to English, reads, “Bloody attack in Cologne: Man says “Merry Christmas” and is stabbed.”
The incident occurred on Christmas Eve, and the attacker was described as one of three “Turks,” according to NetzPlanet.net.
The CIA’s 2007 World Factbook notes that Islam is the largest religion of Turkey, with 99.8% of the population being registered as Muslim.
The full text of the article follows. It’s been translated to English via Google Translate. The translation itself is admittedly rough, and the language somewhat stilted. But out of fear of introducing additional error to the translation, no wording or grammar has been altered. Minor corrections of punctuation have been made for clarity, however.
Bloody attack in Cologne: Man calls “Merry Christmas” and is stabbed
Who on Germany’s roads is about at night, especially in conquered territories of certain groups of immigrants, this is Christmas Eve and “Merry Christmas” repeatedly calls, gets to feel “believers” full respect of. In the stronghold of the Turks in Cologne-Ehrenfeld, three intolerant “people” felt disturbed by the Christmas greeting two men so that they treacherously stabbed one of these men.
Two men (34 and 43 years old ) walked in on Wednesday night on the Venloerstraße and called again and again “Merry Christmas!”
Of these, three oncoming people (a man and two women) felt obviously disturbed.
The 34-year-old was suddenly attacked from behind. He was added to the head and back cuts. The trio fled.
The other two men alerted the police. The 34-year-old was taken to hospital. Whether the injury with a knife or other sharp object to him had been added, he could not tell. He did not see the attack coming.
Intolerance is arguably the single most important characteristic that distinguishes Islam from the other world’s major religions. You don’t find it in Christianity — nor will you in Judaism — only Islam.
The Islamic State carries intolerance to extremes. Its members will behead whatever non-Muslims they come across no matter what their age, gender or state of health.
For that reason, both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have steadfastly argued that the Islamic State isn’t Islamic.
It’s time for them to rethink that proposition.
