It is about time we call the rose by its rightful name when discussing the War against Terror. The problem the free world faces is that it is erroneously preoccupied with a belief system that has us fighting other faiths from its own perspective. Radical Islamists do not want to get along with or respect other's choices in religion. It is time to stop pretending. We are fighting religious zealots of the Islamic faith.
Terrorism is not spawned from Christianity or Judaism. There is no upheaval emulating from Baptists, Lutherans, Seventh Day Adventists, Pentecostals, Mormons, Catholics, Church of Christ, Presbyterians, or Orthodox, Conservative or Reform Judaism. None are calling for a worldwide jihad. Christianity and Judaism are religions of life. They embrace the Lord's Ten Commandments while living their lives in peace and uplifting God Almighty.
A recent Pew Research Institute Poll revealed a shocking find amongst young American Muslims. Pew reported that there is a substantial number of them who could cause chaos in our own country because of their religious beliefs.
Funny how small 26 percent sounds when it describes, for example, the number of American voters who support the Senate's mass-amnesty, goody-bag bill for illegal aliens. In this case, the one in four people polled by Rasmussen this week who hope the legislation passes comes off as a minority voice, especially when compared to the whopping 72 percent of voters who favor border enforcement and the reduction of illegal immigration.
But 26 percent looms large when it describes the number of American Muslims, ages 18-29, who support suicide bombings 'in defense of Islam' — one of the sensational, if sensationally underreported, findings of a recent Pew poll. According to Pew, the total Muslim population in America is 2.35 million, 30 percent of whom are between 18 and 29. By my figuring, the suicide-bomb-approving cohort works out to 183,000 people.
The poll also tells us that 69 percent of younger American Muslims say suicide bombings are never justified. While representing a majority almost as great as the percentage of American voters who favor border enforcement, 69 percent in this particular case is wholly inadequate; indeed, a strikingly poor showing. Why? America must not ignore a dangerous percentage.
New mosques are being built all over the USA. Where is the money to build such lavish places of worship coming from? To this day, the official "constitution" of Saudi Arabia remains the Koran. Eighty percent of the mosques built in the United States within the last 20 years have been founded by them.
There are reports that many of these impressive mosques carry reading materials in their bookstores that come from countries that, like Saudi Arabia, embrace Wahhabism. Books and tapes are sold to encourage moderate Muslims to become radicalized and join the jihad movement.
It stands to reason that our government best start questioning what is going on within Islam in this country. Our nation can't afford to take in people who want to practice Sharia law here in the USA. That kind of practice undermines our country's constitution (freedom from religion as well as freedom to practice religion), our culture, society and safety. American citizens do not want to be forced to become Muslims or any other religion. When faced with a crisis of the "religious freedom" of those who would practice Sharia law here, clearly we're going to have to make exceptions. We can't stand on legalism and let them light the bonfires of our destruction with our own Constitution.
The United Kingdom has long accepted massive numbers émigrés to their nation. In return for the generosity afforded them, too many are biting the hands that welcomed them into their beautiful country to live work and raise their families. Extremist Muslim beliefs within the U. K. are on the verge of causing anarchic uprising. It appears that radical Islam has spread its tentacles into the United Kingdom's heath care system. A number of doctors who should uphold the Hippocratic Oath have been unmasked as Judaists.
Excerpts from the Associated Press:
Report: At Least One of British Terror Suspects Linked to Al Qaeda in Iraq
At least one of the suspects being quizzed over the alleged plot to set off car bombs in Britain was in recent contact with Al Qaeda in Iraq, senior security officials said yesterday.
Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command SO15 apparently has uncovered evidence that, in the months leading up to the attacks, one or more of the suspects communicated by telephone or e-mail with terrorist leaders in Iraq. Click here to read the full Sunday Times report.
The development has fueled a theory that the failed attacks in London and Glasgow were designed as a farewell to Tony Blair to punish him for his role in Iraq. Details of the Al Qaeda role in the three failed car bombings are expected to emerge over the next few days.
The development suggests that intelligence received by MI5 earlier this year about a possible Al-Qaeda attack to mark Blair's departure was accurate. A report in April by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) warned that a senior Iraqi Al Qaeda commander had outlined details of a big attack on Britain. Full Article
It is time that America learn a lesson from the example of the U. K., secure its borders and become much more selective on who we allow to into our country. We do not want to invite criminals, health risks and religious zealots that have a natural propensity for becoming thorns in our flesh.
The United Kingdom is our looking glass for things to come if we do not make the correct decisions. Because of terrorism, we must become much more discriminating and cautious.
The Statue of Liberty stands in the New York Harbor. It is an inspiration to millions of immigrants because it represents a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. Let us choose those who want to become Americans, not turn America into another Londonistan.
The American response to terrorism is being fought in many ways. Today we hear words such as "vigilant." Report anything or anyone who might be acting suspicious. Show your courage and strength as Americans. Continue making a personal contribution in the quest to maintain our freedom by looking after one another.
Many Democrats don't even believe the War against Terror exists. They want us to pull out of Iraq — yesterday. They call terrorism a "Bumper Sticker Slogan." You know who not to vote for in 2008 if you love life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
