Reader’s Comment: Christian fanaticism died out long ago


In response to Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack: Scotland Yard should accept the Islamic impulse of the Westminster killer, Groan wrote:

Its interesting isn’t it. The apologists often try to waft us back to the Inquisition or crusades, unintentionally reminding us how long ago it was that Christian “fanatics” wrought havoc, fighting similarly fanatical Muslims. Of course, the majority on both sides probably wanted to go home and have a quiet life. But here we are in the twenty first century, facing the same fanaticism as a man mows down passers by and runs and rams a long knife into a guard, in the name of holy war.

They themselves illustrate the changes in the “Christian” world which mean nowhere now is there any Christian group even hinting that such an act as Masood’s, and any number of suicidal mass murderers, is a route to heaven.

After all the defining fact of this terror, and the one that makes it so hard to combat, is that the terrorists wish to die and are completely careless of lives, including their own. I cannot think of another terrorist campaign in which the terrorists didn’t want to live to see their terror “work”. I would have thought this one thing makes it imperative to look at jihadist motivation because it directly relates to the threat; its type and level.

I have to believe the public nonsense from their PC commanders does not reflect the thoughts of the police officers working hard to prevent such horrors.
