Killing For Being “Wrong Kind Of Muslim”

January 12, 2014

When you boil it all down, this is what is happening in Syria and Iraq. You even have several clans of Al-Qaeda affiliates that are fighting each other. The result is that the hospitals are now filling up with extremists

An al Qaeda affiliate in Syria battled rival rebels across the country’s north on Saturday and dozens of bodies piled up in a hospital in an insurgent-held city, a monitoring group said.

A week of infighting between the al Qaeda-linked group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and other groups including another al Qaeda-affiliated faction has killed hundreds of fighters opposed to President Bashar al-Assad.

Young Muslims who are interested in going to fight overseas with “Mujahideen” often find that they are doing nothing but fighting other Muslims that are likewise calling themselves “Mujahideen”. Each of them fighting the other because they are the wrong kind of Muslim. This goes back to a fundamental premise that: there is no “true” Islam. And when one is violent, they will kill another person for the slightest perceived deviation from their particular form of the orthodoxy.
