"Blowing off steam."--No way!

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai
in response to reader comment: that's the response the terrorist want

Keith Williams: No, I'm not "blowing off steam", Keith. Had we employed a massive counter-strike after 9/11 we would not now have 4,200 dead US military and 30,900 wounded (vs the 3.000 killed in 9/11). Nor would we number Iraqi dead since our invasion close to 1,000,000,

Yes there are good Muslims. But one must be careful in his counting. And I also counsel that a proper point of beginning is to call up the Qu'ran and Muhammad's writings, off the Internet, and to see just what a good Islamist is told to do in his Jihad. And only then can one judge what can be expected.

Another place to go is Paul Sperry's book "Infiltration", written 3 years ago about Muslims in the US, and Brigitte Gabriel's current reporting www.actforamerica.org , a log of what the civilian Muslim's are currently doing in the Nations of Europe and in the US.

"Use the pen, and not the sword."? The enemy is told to tell the Infidel whatever is expedient but to do whatever is required to advance the Jihad. He is doing just that. Reason is useless.

Yes, I am all for peace, but we aren't going to have it unless the Enemy is contained. I'm afraid we're going to lose where he gains the majority and votes himself into power.
