‘Crimes’ Jihadists Will Sentence You to Death For
by Jeffrey Goldberg
November 14, 2015

Militant Islamism’s war on all of us appears to be accelerating. Christians, Jews, Hindus, atheists, women, gays, and millions upon millions of Muslims who reject the Islamist template—all of us are considered to be Quranically sanctioned targets for elimination by a demented and determined enemy. We can continue to make believe that jihadists are merely reacting to intolerable provocations by the perfidious West, or we can credit them with possession of a well-developed supremacist theology of global expansionism, and with a desire to resuscitate medieval values…Here is a partial, and only partial, list of activities for which Islamists have imposed the death penalty recently:

  1. Vacationing in Egypt
  2. Shopping in Nairobi
  3. Going to work in New York
  4. Flying in an airplane in the U.S.
  5. Riding a train in Madrid
  6. Riding a bus in London
  7. Attending a wedding in Amman
  8. Guarding a Canadian memorial
  9. Praying in an unapproved mosque
  10. Being Jewish….READ THE 22 OTHER ACTIVITIES
