Yes, Ann, I agree with you that the remarks made by Rowan Williams (and Jacqui Smith), unintentionally and inadvertently, serve as a serious warning.

I have been warning about the dangers of Islam for several years, but I am a nobody, thus my words have meant nothing, other than to relieve me of some of my frustration over the inability of our "learned" leaders to recognize what is so obvious to us, the public.

One problem is that politicians live in a cloistered world devoid of everyday common sense, and would never deign to acknowledge that others, their own constituents, are more cognizant of the stark reality of this scourge called Islam than they are.

But, a further word of warning; we are not out of the woods yet. This is just a start. It's going to take a lot more than the ill-conceived notions of a "silly old goat" and the UK's asinine Home Secretary to wake up the rest of our pols.

We need practical solutions to solve practical problems, and the problem of Islam in Britain is real and MUST be dealt with head on. We need action, not just platitudes and well-worn cliches!

Drastic as it may seem, Islam MUST be declared a terrorist organization and outlawed, all mosques MUST be closed then razed, all imams and Islamic clerics MUST be deported, or do we need more 9/11s and 7/7s before Western leaders come to their senses?

Shame on Britain's leaders for being spineless; for cowering every time a Muslim opens his big mouth, usually to complain about some trivial or imagined insult. When I consider the advances made by Western countries that have provided us with untold comforts over the years, and compare those comforts with Islam's intention to take us all back to its 7th century desert mentality, devoid of anything that is decent, I begin to wonder what has happened to British guts and courage.

We need Brits and Yanks like those who fought in WWII, not the chicken-livered cowards afraid of their own shadow who lead us today. Let not the sacrifice of our heroes be in vain!
