I am no war monger.
I opposed, in writings, the invasion of Iraq. As a younger man, I had serious doubts about the value of Americans dying in Viet Nam. I believe the first Gulf War and the Afghan conflicts were truly necessary.
There is no greater threat to the freedom of the world today, than what is unfolding in Syria and Iraq, by whom we call ISIS. It is as serious as the Nazi movement, which sought world domination; the only difference was that their God was in human form by the name of Hitler. And, it is only one more step in their overall plan.
If we do not repel and decimate this threat now, it will metastasize and spread through the middle-east. And once emboldened, they are coming after the western world, at first with isolated incidents of violence, and later with mass murder. It is their mission, for which they are all happy to die for. Literally.
Such decimation cannot be accomplished with pin-pricks and aerial bombings of select targets. That’s like stepping on roaches while the nest thrives. Every military authority in and out of the Obama administration, plus the two former Secretaries of Defense have said a ground assault will be necessary otherwise we’re wasting time and money. And the longer we pin-prick, the stronger they get. They have the numbers, they have the power, they have the methods and they have the funding.
To retreat and build a protective wall around western civilization only delays the inevitable onslaught which our kids and grandkids will have to deal with.
The answer is: D-Day. We need to form a full-scaled invasion and assault. There can be no half-way, otherwise it’s a losing cause. We must show strength, results and resolve, no turning back. It’s a matter of do or die, literally. For in the long run, millions more innocent bodies will scatter the landscape of continents.
Along with our most loyal allies, we need to plunder, kill and destroy radical Islam everywhere, whether they are called ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas, Boco Haram, Taliban or al Sharia…they are all the same ideology with the same purpose. We must stop going after individual cockroaches, we must destroy the nest. The victims of the world, especially women throughout Asia and Africa and the middle-east, are begging for rescue from this international horror, for which the United Nations is virtually useless.
If the general public would take the time to read the history of Islamic conquest, they would see that this is history repeating itself. Hasn’t anyone ever wondered how Islam spread so prolifically across the world, converting Christians and other non-Muslims by the millions in such a short time? Does anyone really think they did it by evangelizing in town squares?
Watch ISIS closely. See what is going on today in the northern Syrian town of Kobani where most are trapped, awaiting their fate at the hands of mass murder. The only difference between today and the 7th century, is weapon technology and mass communication systems. The mentality is the same.
They enter into towns and villages, separate young non-Muslim men (Dhimmis) from their families and order them to change their religion, pay a steep tax (Jizya) or die. Many are beheaded for public view. This terrorizes and frightens onlookers, as they fear the same fate for themselves and loved ones. Their non-Muslim women, and/or Muslim women as well, are often raped and captured and forced into unwanted marriages or as slaves and concubines. Young girls are sold to older men for their pleasures. Children are herded into Madrasses (Islamic schools) where the Quran is force-studied ten hours a day until they are fully indoctrinated. These are the future “moderate” Muslims who, as adults, will live in peace.
Why will they live in peace? Because the resistance disappears after one generation. Knowing little about Christianity or any other religion, all new children grow up to be loyal and obedient Muslims while mothers and fathers who could talk about the virtues of other religions are mostly dead. Old history books are destroyed. (sound familiar?) When everyone is Islamic, and there is no competition and peace prevails.
Yes, there are many stories of history where non-Muslims lived peacefully side by side with Muslims. But that was because, in most of those societies, the non-Muslims paid a special tax (Jizya) to stay alive.
I concede that the majority of ordinary Muslim people throughout the world, particularly in Indonesia, India, China and Egypt, and some in western societies, are peace loving folks not interested in the jihad mentality. But every scholar whose books I have read, including Muslim authors, estimates that the fundamentalist/radical Islamic population is somewhere between 12 and 20 percent of the world of Islam. With 1.4 Muslims globally, that equates to roughly 150 to 200 million jihadists who are either part of the movement toward global conquest, or they support jihad with their generosity and finances. That’s a far larger enemy than Italy, Germany and Japan ever was.
A Jihadist does not have to wear bombs and ammo belts. Thousands of Jihadists wear suits and ties, work among us in medical facilities, government offices, mosques and universities. When they send Zakat (charity donations) to outside organizations, the money is often filtered to al Qaeda, ISIS or Hamas. Plenty of “moderate” and well-educated Islamists have gone to prison in the United States for stealth support of terrorism.
Following the death of Mohammed in 632 A.D., Islamic forces plundered through the middle-east, then across north Africa from Egypt to Morocco (the size of United States) and finally into Spain, where they controlled much of that country from 711 A.D. to 1492. This was all accomplished with camels and swords and terror.
Below is a list of books about the threat of terror and the history of Islamic Jihad. I hope everyone will take the time and effort to study the reality of what is going on today, and why it must be stopped and destroyed. Not contained. Not curtailed: DESTROYED.
Or else, our kid’s kids may be next.
I formed this list three years ago. Many more books have since been published, same subject. I urge everyone: Educate yourselves, then vote smart… or write your congress and your president. Check with amazon.com:
