A recent headline from Jihad Watch, relaying a report from Mailonline, a mainstream news outlet from the UK:
Muslim from UK blows himself up outside Mosul for the Islamic State
Robert Spencer's editorial remarks:
The key question here is this: where did Abu Zakariya al-Britani learn his understanding of Islam? From anyone in Britain? If so, who? Are British authorities looking into this? Or are they waving away the question with the all-purpose dodge that Abu Zakariya al-Britani was “radicalized on the Internet”?
What does Spencer mean, "where did Abu Zakariya al-Britani learn his understanding of Islam?" Is Spencer implying that there exists, among Muslims, an understanding of Islam that does not condone the Jihad of the Sword in a context of the perpetual war Muslims believe they are in, "defending" themselves from the Harbis who, by refusing to submit to Allah and His Prophet, continually offend Muslims, thus necessitating that Muslims fight back to stop this rampant crime of Unbelief and Fitna?
Nobody, apparently, in the Counter Jihad Mainstream (CJM) dares to ask Spencer such a question.
