The pilot’s father, Safi Youssef al-Kasasbeh, an influential tribal sheikh, had earlier questioned whether Jordan should even be fighting the Islamic State. But after his son’s death, his qualms were gone. “I ask the international community to carry out just punishment against those terrorist groups that have no religion or traditional values,” he said in a telephone interview.Emphasis added.
America's right-wingers pride themselves on their hatred of ISIS, but they can't possibly hate ISIS more than this man. And how does he express his contempt? By saying ISIS has "no religion."
I'm a Western white guy. I've never lived in a majority-Muslim society. But even I can tell, just from reading news stories, that many Muslims talk this way about ISIS or Al Qaeda or similar groups, especially after acts of brutal violence. American idiots can't grasp the fact that there are many Muslims who think it's extremely important to be a good Muslim but oppose the people we oppose. Why shouldn't we try to understand their perspective and reach out to them in ways that reflect that understanding?
