Like Mafia, like only one slice of the pizza...

Reader comment on item: [Theo van Gogh and] "Education By Murder" in Holland

Submitted by RPaine (Australia), Nov 17, 2004 at 10:09

Regarding your statement (Daniel) that Islamist sshould operate with more "cunning" like the Mafia families, wouldn't that be like Islam only using part of its arsenal of attack methods? How much more cunning can anyone get?

They provide:
-moral suport and appologising for Terrorism (i.e. CAIR)
-financial and material support
-favorable media coverage (sometimes this is inadvertent; sometimes it is opportunistic; and sometimes is controled by the Islam)**It is truly unfortunate (DANGEROUS!!) that so many people (Main Stream Media in particular) that think that they can just bury their head like an ostrich and that this terrorism, "nuisance" will just go away.**
-new recruits
-etc., etc.

In my humble opinion, Islamism must be confronted on a global basis and at every level - cutting off their funding, their ability to recruit, their desire to fight to gain control of the rest of the world.


Regards,
