How the West Could Lose

Reader comment on item: How the West Could Lose

Submitted by Anne (United States), Sep 20, 2008 at 10:59

Dr. Pipes has written a very good article here. Appeasement, pacifism, self-hatred, and complacency could defeat the US. Terorists win by ideas, deceit, and infiltration, not necessarily weapons of war. They also are vigilant and have all the time in the world to take over a nation by Sharia Law. The people who have never had to worry, and live in wealth and freedom are easy targets, and very unsuspecting, as Johh kerry said, Oh the Terrorists are a small nuisance. Complacency and Apathy are also weapons against the unsuspecting people.

The biblical story of David and Goliath comes to my mind. David was never expected to win this battle against the huge, militarily armed Goliath, but David's strategy and faith won in the end. The huge, powerful Giant fell hard.

Education, truth in religion, self-esteem, self-worth, and a purpose in life could change alot of minds from an ideology of hate and destruction to peace, fairness and prosperity.....I have talked to many muslims who totally agree....
