Frontpagemag.com recently published an article today by a known Jihadophobe, Nonie Darwish, titled The Islamic Grinch Who Stole the Olympics, in which the author outrageously claims that the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia have somehow been overshadowed by the threat of Islamic terrorism, with al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri calling for a “global jihad” against the Sochi games, and various allegedly jihadist YouTube videos promising that the “demon Olympics” will have an “atmosphere of fear and terror” and telling the athletes that “Satan is with you.”
She then comes to a far-fetched conclusion that “competitive sports are not an important Islamic value, especially if compared to the mental and physical training of Islamic youth for jihad,” claiming that “Islamic culture often discourages competitive sports, singing, dancing and self-expression, and this is the fundamental reason why there are few prominent Muslim athletes.”
That is, of course, absolutely untrue. As you can see from the YouTube videos below, the Muslim world has a vibrant athletic culture and breathtaking Olympic events that indeed overshadow anything that the infidel Olympics have to offer:
Taliban Olympics I:
