Islam is not like any other faith

I quoted the NY Times attacking Australian Senator Fraser Anning, but it is only fair to quote what he said:
"I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman"

"However whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified what it highlights in the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing muslim presence."

"As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today's shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all cliched nonsense."

"The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim Fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place"

"Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators. World-wide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an industrial scale."

"The entire religion of Islam is simply the violent ideology of a sixth century despot masquerading as a religious leader, which justifies endless war against anyone who opposes it and calls for the murder of unbelievers and apostates."

"The truth is that Islam is not like any other faith. It is the religious equivalent of fascism. And just because the followers of this savage belief were not the killers in this instance does not make them blameless"

"As we read in Matthew 26:52, 'all they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword' and those who follow a violent religion that calls on them to murder us, cannot be too surprised when someone takes them at their word and responds in kind,.."
A copy is also here.

There is a war going on between Islam and Western Civilization, and for the most part, West Civ is not shooting back.

The killer's manifesto is not aimed at conservatives. He hates conservatives and has a low opinion of President Trump. His purpose is to trigger liberals in the news media, and they appear to be triggered exactly as he intended. They are following his wishes.

There are plenty of articles denouncing him, of course. The Wash. Post attacks him:
Sturtevant counted 18 references to the Middle Ages in the markings and writing on the arsenal that belonged to Brenton Harrison Tarrant, the 28-year-old Australian charged in Friday’s New Zealand rampage.

There is, of course, the sun wheel, or black sun, symbols seen in photos Tarrant allegedly posted to the Internet before the shooting. The symbol became associated with the Third Reich after Heinrich Himmler decorated a castle with it. ...

There were also numerous references on the suspected shooter’s weapons to medieval battles and figures, including four names of medieval Serbs who fought against the Muslim Ottomans, two Hungarian military leaders who fought the Ottomans, and numerous references to the Crusades, when Christian armies from Europe tried to seize the Holy Land from Muslims during the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. ...

One name in particular stood out to Sturtevant: Charles Martel. Martel was a real person in history, credited with defeating the last organized army headed by a Muslim ruler to attempt to invade what is now France at the Battle of Tours in 732.
I kept reading to see if Tarrant or anyone else were misrepresenting these symbols. Instead it says:
“White supremacists imagine the Middle Ages as a time when Europe was all white, separated from its neighbors and in constant conflict with those that it deemed to be outsiders,” Sturtevant said. “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

In medieval Sicily, Christians, Muslims and Jews were “living and working together side by side,” Sturtevant said. In 7th-century England, the well-respected archbishop of Canterbury was from Turkey, ... Pilgrimage books listed travelers as hailing from “India” — though this was probably just a fill-in for anywhere in the Middle East.
Turkey was part of the Roman Empire. Travelers came from distant lands. What is the point?

So maybe Europe was only 98% White. Maybe some Muslims lived on a island somewhere. I guess that would disprove someone saying that Europe was 100% White or 100% Christian, but who said that?

I would think that when the Wash. Post tries to discredit white supremacists, it could do a better job than this. White supremacists are likely to just see this as confirmation of their beliefs.
