He Was Praying To Allah, So I Thought He Would Commit Murder
It has gotten to the point that no one is surprised when an Islamist prays to Allah to seek guidance to commit a murder, rather than to turn away from evil.
In Oklahoma City, Patrol Troooper Sheldon Robinson has been honored. He saved the lives of many by wrestling and arresting a gunman who had entered a Burger King and threatened to kill everyone.
Robinson, wearing his trooper badge around his neck and carrying his weapon, parked his truck and peered in the window of the Burger King.
Inside was a man dressed in black. A Glock .40-caliber handgun and a full box of ammunition sat on the tabletop next to him.
Three other people were looking for a way out when Robinson passed them as he entered the restaurant.
When the man briefly removed his hand from his gun, Robinson, who had approached from the man's blind side, grabbed his arm.
Now alone in the restaurant, the two men wrestled on the floor before Robinson got one of his handcuffs around the man's arm.
"The second one didn't lock in place, so we went down again," Robinson said. "He was a pretty stout guy."
Robinson had the man fully cuffed by the time Tulsa police officers arrived.
And here's the quote that is so significant:
"It was one of those deals of being in the right place at the right time," Robinson said. "I believe he would have loaded up that gun and gone to town because he was praying for Allah to help him carry out his mission."
Note that there is no longer any surprise to anyone that an Islamic would-be killer would pray to Allah. The public has lots of experience with Islamists praying to Allah to help them commit murder - and near-zero experience with Islamists praying to Allah for any other purpose.
The public has no such history with followers of any other religion. There is no other religion with a worldwide cult of followers who seek out non-Muslims to kill in public places, in the name of their religion.
Clearly Islam is unlike the world's other religions. It isn't the same as other religions and should not be treated the same as other religions.
