So “Jihadi John” — Mohamed Emwazi –has been revealed. He’s a young, wealthy Londoner who graduated from the University of Westminster with a degree in computer programming.

What was I just saying last week about the myth of the poor, oppressed jihadi?

Oh, yeah…

The persistent, left-wing myth of the poor, oppressed jihadist is absolute madness. How many times do we have to remind the clueless Kumbaya crowd that al Qaeda mastermind Ayman al-Zawahiri had a medical degree, as did Hamas bigwig Abdel Rantissi and the seven upper-crust doctors who helped plan the 2007 London/Glasgow bombings?

Or that Al Qaeda scientist Affia Siddiqui studied microbiology at MIT and did graduate work in neurology at Brandeis. Terror architect Khalid Shaikh Mohammed earned a mechanical engineering degree at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. 9/11 lead hijacker Mohamed Atta majored in urban planning at a German technical university. Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh graduated from the London School of Economics before abducting and murdering American journalist Daniel Pearl. And Osama bin Laden (Oxford) and Sayyid Qutb (Colorado State Teachers College) had plenty of exposure to wealth and Western studies.

The “root cause” of their evil-doing is not a lack of employment, education, community centers, Iftar dinners at the White House, or publicly-funded “opportunities.” They don’t want jobs. They want blood. Revenge. Islamic dominance. Ruthless extermination of Jews, gays, Coptic Christians, Christian aid workers, cartoonists, journalists, apostates, and infidels of all shapes and sizes.

The M****m j*******s are not victims of Islamophobic intolerance and Western callousness. We are the victims of our own leaders’ bleeding-heart overindulgence and reckless refusal to deal with reality.
