Sahih Muslim 6985—Allah’s Messenger said: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.Mehdi Nemmouche is a French Muslim who traveled to Syria to wage jihad. After returning to France, he traveled to Brussels, Belgium, where he walked into a Jewish museum and opened fire. Three were killed, and one more seriously injured. Oddly enough, we're still not allowed to have an open, honest discussion about the ideology that leads to these attacks.
Let's take a step back and see if we can follow the chain of events. (1) Muslims in Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt begin rising up against their predominantly secular leadership. (2) Western media and politicians praise the revolution, calling it the "Arab Spring." (3) Backed by Western support, radical Muslims gain power Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt. (4) Muslims in Syria, seeing the success of the "Arab Spring," rise up against the Assad regime. (5) The United States supports the rebels against Assad. (6) Muslims from America and Europe travel to Syria to join the jihad (codename: "Arab Spring") against Assad. (7) After absorbing the ideology and tactics of jihadists in Syria, these Western Muslims return to their own countries. (8) As trained jihadists, they now begin launching attacks against Western targets.
I could say, "I told you so," but what's the point?
BBC—Prosecutors say a Frenchman being held over a fatal shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels admitted the killings in a video.

Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, was arrested in at a train station in Marseille on Friday.
Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said the suspect had claimed responsibility for the 24 May attack, which left three people dead and another critically ill.
He said Mr Nemmouche had spent over a year in Syria and had links with radical Islamists.
Security was tightened at Jewish sites across Belgium following the shooting.
Police found Mr Nemmouche had in his possession a Kalashnikov rifle and a handgun believed to have been used in the attack, the Paris prosecutor told a news conference on Sunday.
With the weapons was a white sheet emblazoned with the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a jihadist group fighting in Syria, according to Mr Molins.
Mr Nemmouche was also said to be carrying a camera with a 40-second video showing the two guns and a voice recording, claiming responsibility for the killings and expressing regret that the device had not succeeded in capturing the shooting.
French President Francois Hollande earlier said France was determined to stop "jihadists" from carrying out attacks. (Continue Reading.)
