We Fight over Trifles as Islam Conquers
America stood idly by as Islamic fundamentalists attacked everywhere, from Afghanistan, where the Taliban stoned women and destroyed priceless Buddhist artifacts, to France, where large areas are off-limits to French society and only Muslims can enter. For our ignorance and lack of concern, we were rewarded by the massacre of 3000 people and the destruction of the Twin Towers. Don’t think we weren’t warned of this, just as today students of the world and its history are warning us that Islam is determined to conquer the world, including America, and is succeeding.
We are withdrawing from Afghanistan, where a successful counter-terrorism policy was replaced in 2009 by a now failed nation-building policy; and we have given away all that our blood and treasure accomplished in Iraq due to the naïve world view now in vogue.
We see the countries in Europe cowering in fear of their Muslim populations. We see Islamic fundamentalists taking over in Libya, Egypt, Syria and Turkey. They are already well-established in Somalia, Iran, Indonesia, Palestinian areas of Israel and in large areas of the African continent; and they are on the move in Mali, the Philippines and Yemen. Other, so-far moderate, Muslim countries are also under the gun, and the list goes on and on.
Just as we stood idly by as Hitler advanced through Europe because, “It has nothing to do with us”, so are we withdrawing from confronting this deadly menace, while we pretend that Muslims in America are absolutely no threat to us, to our legal traditions or to our freedoms.
"I don't think you can overstate the importance that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism will have to the rest of the world in the century ahead-especially if, as seems possible, its most fanatical elements get their hands on nuclear and chemical weapons and the means to deliver them against their enemies." --Ronald Reagan
“Reagan made this statement before the jihad attack on the Khobar Towers, before the jihad attack on the USS Cole, before the first attack on the World Trade Center, and the 7/7 attack in London, and the 3/11 attack on a train station in Madrid. Reagan warned of a worldwide "Muslim fundamentalist revolution" before the Islamic jihad massacre committed by Major Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas; before the Islamic jihad massacre in Bali; before the jihad massacre in Mumbai, and before the numerous thwarted attempts at jihad attacks in the United States over the last two years. Reagan spoke before the nearly 18,000 Islamic jihad terrorist attacks that have been committed since 9/11.
Reagan spoke before there was a significant Muslim presence in Europe. Now the threat and intimidation by Muslims throughout the countries of the European Union is growing at every level.”
The following is a statement by the late Ayatollah Khomeini about the goals of Islam.
"Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of other [countries] so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world...Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured [by the unbelievers]?
Islam says: Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy? Islam says: Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] psalms and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”
We need to do everything we can to stop Iran from acquiring the bomb; we need to give even more support to Israel as they defend their country and western values; we need to increase the pressure beyond occasional drone strikes to confront and stop the march of Islamic fundamentalists everywhere (especially in Egypt): and we need to stop any further immigration of Muslims into our country before what is happening throughout Europe happens to us.
I am not encouraged by the appointment of former Senator Hagel to Secretary of Defense that we will be able to defend our society from this menace.
