Millions of Americans are sick and tired of fork-tongued politicians telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. With over 22,000 deadly acts of terror to their credit around the world in the thirteen years since 9/11 – nearly all in the name of Allah – that’s getting a little hard to swallow.
President G.W. Bush regurgitated that propaganda within days after the 9/11 attack, flanked by Imams inside the National Cathedral while corpses and ruins smoldered, telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. I don’t think the wives, husbands, fathers and mothers of terror victims were impressed.
In 2014, Islamic terrorism is still the scourge of planet earth. Radical Islamists are ravaging the middle-east, Africa and Asia, and even Europe and the United States. They may be called al Qaeda, Boco Haram, Hamas, Anwar al-Sharia, Hezbollah, ISIS, ISIL, whatever, but they are all the same species with the same ideology. They are ubiquitous. We kill a few roaches now and then, but the nest is thriving. Politicians lied when they tried to convince us that al Qaeda had been decimated.
In President Obama’s UN speech this week, we heard some tough talk about killing off the new terror group ISIL.(or ISIS) Then, he couched the entire speech with a couple of PC counter statements, i.e., “The United States will never be at war with Islam. Islam preaches peace.”
Oh really? Is that why multi-millions of Muslims around the globe not only engage in terrorism against the “infidels,” millions more provide aid, comfort and financial support to keep these barbarians in business? Clerics, ex-college professors and intellectuals occupy our prisons today, convicted of funneling money to Hamas and other terror groups. Terrorists are not just wearing bombs and face masks, they also wear suits and ties in western countries.
Is that why every airport and airline in the entire globe collectively spends trillions of dollars , providing security for fear of radical Islamic terror attacks?
Is that why so many Muslim nations are engaging in torture, beheadings, hangings, public executions of children and women, genital mutilation, kidnappings for ransom, and more, where young boys are indoctrinated in madrassas and inside mosques to hate and kill Jews and Christians, or non-Muslims in general? Is that why millions of people, including Muslims, live in utter fear of violence and intimidation to their family members?
Then, the president imparted another gem, similar to his Cairo speech five years ago. “Millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.” In 2009, his words were, “…Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Oh really? Does that include the many decades of terror attacks by Muslims against American vessels in the Mediterranean until President Jefferson finally said enough and went to war, driving the Jihadists back to the “shores of Tripoli.”
Part of the fabric of this country? Is that why there are two dozen Islamic enclaves in America where non-Muslims are unwelcome? Is that why Islamists in Minnesota, Michigan and other parts of the country do not assimilate and are fertile recruiting grounds for future terrorists? Is that why identified terrorists have been associated with specific mosques and Imams in the U.S.? Is that why Islamic demonstrators took to the streets of Miami, New York and other cities with hate slogans in support of Hamas, and the denigration of Jews?
Yes, there are peaceful Muslims throughout the world. But with rare exception, they live under a tacit gag order, afraid to speak out against other Muslims lest some family member goes missing.
With praise, the president cited a quotation from Sheikh Abdallah bin Bayyah, “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” The president tells us the sheikh is a moderate Muslim who can help combat the Islamic State (ISIS).
Oh really? Bayyah is the Vice President of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, founded by Muslim Brotherhood leader, Yusuf Qaradawi. Now banned from the United States, Qaradawi called for the death of all Jews and Americans. Bayyah, himself, called for the killing of all American troops in Iraq and issued a fatwa in 2009 barring all forms of normalization with Israel. He remains a strong supporter of Hamas.
Americans in general, are not aware that Islamics with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood have been frequent invitees at the White House, some employed within our State, Justice and Homeland Security Departments.
We need an unwavering president whose both feet are planted in the USA. We need a president who does not apologize for America. We need a president who will go all-the-way, at all costs, to destroy a vicious enemy hell bent on destroying us, even if it means all out war with combat troops. That’s why they exist. And we need a president who does not forecast our intent to the enemy.
There is no halfway. If we don’t kill this dangerous cancer at the root, it will metastasize – throughout the world. Then, it will be too late.
Where is Harry Truman when you need him?
It’s time the world of Islam to stop talking and start proving they are a religion of peace. I’d be very happy to know that. Talk is cheap.
