Liberals really don’t get it. They seem to think Muslims will like them if they’re nice to them. This foolishness will do nothing but get more innocent people killed.

Official reaction to the shooting attack on a Philadelphia policeman by an avowed Islamic jihadist raises a disturbing question: Will Muslims who commit crimes and confess to them be given a get-out-of-jail-free card?
Here’s why I ask.
Edward Archer, 30, confessed to shooting Officer Jesse Hartnett, 33, by approaching his vehicle’s driver’s window, pointing a gun and firing 13 shots and doing so “in the name of Islam” as an ISIS supporter.
With the attack caught on surveillance video, it would seem to an open-and-shut case.
But, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney later denied the attack had anything to do with “being a Muslim or the Islamic faith.”
Now, it’s not unusual to hear from public officials following jihadist attacks claiming they have nothing to do with Islam, which is, as we have all heard, a “religion of peace.”
However, to convict a suspect of attempted murder in a U.S. court of law, you have to prove the defendant had “means, motive and opportunity.”
What Kenney did – wittingly or unwittingly – is to repudiate a confession of a suspect by removing his stated motive.
Think about that.
In his zeal to be politically correct, to repudiate “Islamophobia,” to be a multiculturalist in good standing and to exude tolerance, the mayor may have actually provided a legal loophole for a would-be cop-killer.
