Islamic Terrorist Arrested in Spain Didn’t Even Pray

The video below features interviews with friends and neighbors of a “Spanish” terrorist who was arrested on Tuesday as part of a series of raids in Catalonia. According to those who knew him, the suspect wasn’t devout. He didn’t pray; he didn’t visit the mosque; he smoked hashish. How could he possibly be a terrorist?

  1. It is true that the more devout a Muslim is, the more likely he is to be a terrorist. However, we also see that Islamic terrorists do not need to be devout to wage jihad.

    Many Muslims live in fear & guilt for not praying, for not being devout, and they become terrorists to make it up to allah and to get a special place in Mohammed’s bordello by murdering infidels.

    • True. Also some commit an attack to restore family honour that may have been supposedly tainted by a sister etc.

      I can see that this will probably become a more common excuse by moslems and the MSM. That is, that if there are not a dozen outward signs of faithfulness, then it cannot be considered moslem terrorism regardless that the person themself declared it so.

  2. In fact the Jihadist believes he has the best of both worlds. Live like a sinner and infidel, and in Jihad martyrdom instant entry to heaven. For many deadbeats and criminals it seems to be appealing.

    • Indeed. The 9/11 hijackers, and the Orlando night club killer, indulged themselves in various forms of debauchery, expecting to have their “sins” forgiven if they died killing infidels in the cause of jihad.

      Not unlike medieval European Christians buying “indulgences” in advance, as in Chaucer’s “Pardoner’s Tale”, but with more horrendous results.
