Mark Durie on Islam’s role in Boko Haram kidnappings

Dr Mark Durie (via FrontPageMag) explains the role of Islamic doctrine, and the example of Mohammed, in inspiring and sanctioning the kidnapping of the 200 Nigerian schoolgirls.

In describing the denial of Islam's role in terrorism, Durie uses an analogy of being blindfolded while someone is trying to beat you up. He says that Western intellectuals and media would rather be beaten to death than take off their blindfold and think critically about Islam. He says we are theologically illiterate.

File under: suicidal blindness.
