Lone Wolves

Canadian Columnist Mark Steyn tackles a term, “lone wolf,” which describes not so much any jihadist as it does the authorities that fossick around a box of Islamic Crackerjacks in search of a motive, in strenuous evasion of the fact that the perps were Muslims  motivated by Islam .  

The suspects suffer from “mental illness,” their cranial instability probably the safest label they  can pin to a killer without being accused of not being “diversity’” friendly.

“This term ‘lone wolf’ is a cop-out…the idea that they somehow have to have a membership card in Islamic State or in al Qaeda for it to be official, fully-credentialed terror, like getting a hairdresser’s license in New York State is completely preposterous” he stated.
Steyn added that the rhetoric of “lone wolf” terrorists allows those who do not want to admit that radical Islam is a problem to brush off terror as isolated incidents, saying “all jihad is local. That actually suits them, to say, ‘oh no this is just some mentally ill guy in Ottawa and this is another guy who’s a bit goofy in New York and there’s no connection between the two.’ Because otherwise you have to treat it like your other big story. You have to treat it like ideological Ebola and you have to stop the infection…
In other words, the term “lone wolf” permits authorities to hopscotch over the reality of Islam-fueled terrorism, and thus avoid the hypothetical unpleasantness of offending Muslims or their “religion,” and probably the accusation of “racism” (even though the practice of Islam is not confined to any one race; but apparently this is a difficult concept to communicate).
Being a “lone wolf” entitles one to belong to the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves. One acts alone in one’s butchery, not on command by ISIS. One is inspired by ISIS, by its videos and online encouragement.
Relating to the beheading murders of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, of Denmark, and Maren Ueland, of Norway in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, Australian News reported:
In a press conference in Rabat yesterday, police and domestic intelligence spokesman Boubker Sabik labelled the suspects “lone wolves”, adding that “the crime was not co-ordinated with Islamic State” [ISIS].
Authorities allege the four main suspects — all of whom were arrested within three days of the murders — recruited up to 15 others into a hastily formed terrorist group.
Authorities in Morocco and Denmark initially pinned the attack on Islamic State after a video of the four main suspects pledging allegiance to the group a week before the murders surfaced online.
But local police now believe the alleged killers acted without advance agreement with IS or any other foreign terrorist organization.
Although no connection to ISIS has been firmly established, ISIS wasted no time in cashing in on the murder, and celebrated them by sending videos of the beheadings Jesperson’s mother and her friends in Denmark. The Swedish government news outlet has made it a punishable offense to send the videos.
RT reports
On Christmas Eve, the national public broadcaster in Sweden aired a report about the barbaric killings, but chose not to focus on the actual details of the crime or the now-established links to Islamic terrorism. The SVT report made no mention of the fact that one of the young women was beheaded, said nothing about the ISIS link and simply referred to “knife damage” on the woman’s neck.
Bizarrely, the report focused almost entirely on how it is a punishable offence to share the disturbing video. Written reports on SVT’s website did mention the fact that the murders have been linked to Islamic terrorism, but that fact was nowhere to be found in its strange Christmas Eve report.
“Knife damage”?  That is about as sensational as me nicking myself while shaving. One commenter remarked in response to SVT’ timid, s soft shoe coverage of the crime:
225 years ago Marie Antoinette suffered ‘knife damage to her neck’ during the French Revolution,” another user sarcastically wrote.
Maximilien Robespierre held the knife. More than two centuries later,  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi became his successor in terror. Robespierre was eventually consumed by his own army of lone wolves. Let us hope that al-Baghdadi meets the same just fate.
