The Nightmare Continues Unabated As We Refuse To Name The Enemy

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai

B"H

Mumbai was horrific, and it stands out in our consciousness as unique. But is it? Because we don't see it as a piece of the whole, we miss it's significance.

Consider that in Mumbai the Pakistani trained Islamic Terrorists killed 178 and wounded 370. Yes, that is shocking, but what about the 60 incidents (as of this writing) that have occurred since then? What about the 265 dead and 718 wounded in those 60 attacks, nearly twice the toll of Mumbai? Why don't they get the attention they deserve?

Until we see each and every Islamic attack on anyone as emanating from the same poisoned well, and as a part of the same demonic tapestry, we will be unable to confront the problem. And it isn't such an awesome monster that we can't defeat it almost overnight if we want to, if we unite against it. But, if we remain divided, however, we give the enemy the hope without which he can't continue. So, what are we waiting for?
