Breitbart: “President Obama says don’t worry, the Orlando terrorist was just another “lone actor” operating in isolation, unconnected to any larger group of supporters. In fact, these so-called “lone wolves” are running in packs, and suggesting otherwise gives the public a false sense of security.
Yet Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson echoed Obama, saying Omar Mateen was “self-radicalized” without any religious, ideological or operational support from friends, family or others in the Muslim community.
Opinion: There is another reason for the radicalization: it’s in the DNA.
Back to Genesis: The radicalization began when Abraham and Sarah decided to take matters into their own hands and produce the heir God had promised them. Sarah, thinking she was too old to bear a son, told Abraham to sleep with her handmaiden.
This child became the first in Abraham’s family to have Jewish and Gentile blood. He was named Ishmael and today he is recognized by Muslims as an important prophet, but also as:
- The patriarch of Islam
- The forefather of Muhammad
Now here is the problem, God also described his temperament:
“He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” Genesis 16:12
But don’t tell anyone – because the world wants to think that radicalization is something new.
