Yesterday over at Jihad Watch, among the articles posted and featured by Robert Spencer was one titled, “Philippines: Islamic State leaders torch the Christian school they graduated from”
Details in that article include the telling of how, “Twenty years after obtaining Christian education, Muslim brothers Omarkhayam and Abdullah Maute returned to this Central Mindanao city with the black flags of the Islamic State (IS) group and set fire to their alma mater.”
The details tell of how, the Maute brothers, accompanied by “Hundreds of gunmen, many of them young locals recruited …destroyed Dansalan College in a rampage through Marawi City.”
They include, “Zia Alonto Adiong, a member of the legislative assembly of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, stating, “We do not understand where that hate is coming from.”
The details also provide, how, “Duma Sani, a former dean of Mindanao State University” stated that “most locals did not support their radical Islamic brand that mandated the killing of nonbelievers.”
With the former dean of Mindanao State University further stating, “These [Marawi gunmen] are young people who have their own interpretation of the Quran….”
Such a darn shame, is it not? And to think of it, it is, seemingly, all because of those awful “extremist.”
Those awful “extremist,” I can well imagine, just how they broke into Islamic publishing houses the world over, probably, in the middle of the night, and there taking their Moderate victims captive, binding and gagging them.
Then, with the Moderates thus contained, the extremist went about changing all the “sacred texts.”
Therein making a liar and laughing stock of “Allah” and his claim to protect the Qur’an from manipulation and perversion.
I can thus well imagine, once the said Moderates were freed, the “extremist” vanished, then, worn and walloped, tattered and torn, weary and wondering, the Moderates, all the same, had to get to work. Business was, after all, at the door.
And so they sold those books just as the “extremist” had left them.

Hence, the message today, sadly, now known the world over as Islam–perverted, perverted, perverted.
