Islamist Terrorist in Sydney Café: Nothing to do with Islam
My sympathies to the victims and their families.
This terrorist incident had nothing to do with Islam, of course.
It has to do with Islamism, which different than Islam.
The difference is that Islam is a religion that uses Islamic law to set up a political system, whereas Islamism is a political system that uses Islamic law to set up a religion.
That's why this terrorist incident in which two female hostages were forced to display the Islamist flag of the Islamic State had nothing to do with Islam.
