WAR ON TERROR: A MISNOMER

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. TheQuran should be the highest authority in America.”

— Omar M. Ahmad, founder of CAIR (Council On American-Islamic Relations)

There is no such thing as a “War on Terror.”

Promulgated by media, journalists or politicians, this worn-out cliche` has been used so many thousands of times in the last six years that Americans are inured by utter repetition. As intelligent Americans, we fail to question what is being omitted.

Terror is a method. Terror is an emotion. We can’t be at war against a method and an emotion.

We will never win any war until we are prepared to identify the enemy. We don’t do that. Neither does the media, or the government.

That works very good — for our enemy. That’s the way they want it. We play right into their hands helping our enemies perpetuate the propaganda machine that points the fingers of blame in every direction but the right direction for fear of being politically incorrect. We are at war against a cliche`.

On September 11, 2001, our nation was invaded by a foreign enemy who was willing to die for the joy of killing us. It was the first time in nearly two hundred years that our mainland was under attack, killing three thousand of our citizens. It was clearly a declaration of war. In 1941, we identified the Japanese Imperialists as our enemy. We identified Nazi Germany as our enemy. In southeast Asia, North Viet Nam . There was no ambiguity — then.

In 2001, we were not attacked by “Terror.” We were attacked by radical Islamists who represent a powerful and well financed enemy that is duty bound to convert our beloved country

into an Islamic republic by the end of the century. And while our armies fight in foreign lands, our enemies are rooting in within the borders of America to not only perpetuate acts of terror, but to infiltrate our educational facilities, our government institutions, our neighborhoods, our prisons and our infrastructure in general. “Terror” is but one means by which they aim to carry out jihad.

In doing this, the enemy makes good use of the First Amendment as a tool for carrying out their goals, exploiting the freedoms of speech and religion which will cease to exist if and when they have their way. And when that ever happens, all the progress made by women in America will take an about face. Jews, Christians and infidels in general will be relegated to dhimmitude status, or killed, and the constitution will be become a mere blip in a history book somewhere.

In truth, radical Islam is a fascist ideology that masquerades as a religion to suit their purpose. While they exploit religious freedoms, they proliferate Wahhabi financed mosques and other radical Islamic centers which serve as a Trojan Horse, surreptitiously plotting the demise of America. Bear in mind, in nations where radical Islam rules, there is no freedom of religion. There won’t be here, either.

One only has to examine the enormous inroads they have made here in the last twenty years. We can only imagine what the next twenty will hold.

This enemy is the same radical Islam that bombed the World Trade Center in 1993. They are the same who murdered seventeen of our soldiers aboard the U.S.S. Cole in 2000, and who bombed our Kenya and Tanzania embassies in 1997 killing 223 people, who bombed our Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1983 killing 241 servicemen, who murdered 191 people in Madrid in 1994, and another 52 in London in 1995. Bali, Sudan, Algiers, Somalia, Chechnya, the carnage goes on. They are the same radical Islamics that partnered with Hitler in WW II to eradicate the world of Jewish people, long before Israel existed. They are the same who were commanded by Muhammad to spread Islam throughout the world.

It’s time for America to declare our true enemy. The free world is not at war against terror. We are at war against Radical Islam. The sooner our government owns up to that realism, the sooner we will begin to make inroads.

Yes, the majority of Muslims throughout the world are peace loving people who do not subscribe to these tenets. Even if the radicals — and their supporters — represent one-tenth of the world of Islam, we face a formidable enemy of at least 150 million people, with nuclear materials at their doorstep and an unlimited ocean of oil money belching from the mid-east.

Nazism in the 1930’s was a mere pimple compared to the foe we will be facing down the road. At least we could see them.

In 1932, they called people like me, and like CNN’s Glen Beck, authors Brigitte Gabriel and Paul Sperry, mid-east scholar Daniel Pipes and others, “fear mongers.” Those fear mongers were dismissed, but they were right. Adopting the pacifist approach, Europe turned a blind eye until they reached the slippery slope. By then, it was too late. The momentum was in full force. And 50 million people went to their graves.

Michele Malkin called political correctness, “The handmaiden for terror.” More correctly, it is the handmaiden for radical Islam, here and abroad.

In researching my book, “Militant Islam In America,” I was shocked to learn the scope of our enemy’s resources, their wicked goals, their vast organization, strategies and sheer numbers that are destined to grow. The government knows about this, so does the media. But very few are telling you. The focus of our government is ten thousand miles on the other side of the world as the Trojan Horse grows more ominous every day.

Radical Islamists are organized in more than seventy nations world wide, including many in Europe. And they are here.

The Los Angeles Police Department recently formed a plan to map Muslim neighborhoods in order to identify and monitor the actions of radicals among them. That’s what good police agencies do, pinpoint locations of potential criminals and track them.

When extremist Muslim organizations, such as CAIR, protested, local politicos caved in to the hue and cry. Intimidation continues to succeed and political correctness continues to offer sanctuary to our enemy.

This is but one of hundreds of examples, too many to list, in which America is succumbing to and inevitable horror which our children, and their children will be left to deal with.

This coming election, I will cast my vote for whatever candidate who is not afraid to clearly identify the enemy. For if the enemy ever has their way, all the other issues in debate won’t matter any more.

Come to think of it…when was the last time someone like Wolf Blitzer asked the question:

“As president, what will you do to stem the rising tide of radical Islam inside the United States?” It’s probably the most important question regarding the future of America, but it’s never asked.

I’m not holding my breath.
