He said more than 20 British workers – whom the terrorists called ‘kuffar’, meaning non-Muslims – were rounded up.
This is incorrect. The correct translation of the word “kuffar” is bug. That is a non-human being with no right to live.
When I was writing for THE RESISTER, the editor -- under the apparent influence of Saul Alinsky -- told me that we have to dehumanize our opponents on the Left.
I disagreed. I said that the Left, by what they chose to believe and how they chose to act have already dehumanized themselves. All we as writers have to do is accurately observe and report on their beliefs and actions.
In this case the jihadists who chose to believe that non-believers are not human -- and act on that belief -- have chosen to dehumanize themselves.
