It turns out that “John,” which is how he is identified, “is not Muslim himself, but said he is angry that terrorist groups such as ISIL claim to represent Islam.” He tells the London Telegraph, “ISIS should be wiped out, because they’re not Muslims, because Muslims don’t do that. It’s as simple as that.”
Except, of course, that a Muslim did do that. John actually knows this, and this is where the story gets even better. Why is he identified only by his first name, refusing to let the newspapers publish his last name? “Now the man behind the comments has said he fears retribution from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) — also known as ISIS — after their popularity.”
Well, there you go. The subway attacker wasn’t a Muslim, and the Islamic State is not Islamic — yet somehow they have an insistent interest in cutting off the head of any infidel who dares to make pronouncements about Islam.
