Reader comment on item: Denying [Islamist] Terrorism
Submitted by Marcos Berenstein (Brazil), Feb 8, 2005 at 16:51Regardless hundreds,maybe thousands of cases in which Islam persecutes,
kills people for being against their teachings,scores of educated people in America,
Europe still believes that something could turn out to be reasonable,decent,
or even peaceful from this terrorist,bigot,bloodthirsty,nazi-like religion.
Former British Prime Minister,Mr.Chamberlain once said before British press shortly
after his arrival from Munich that the Führer was interested in peace.Appeasement became
Britain's official foreign policy,even after ominous events like the creation of Dachau camp(1934),the Nuremberg Laws that ejected Jews from performing their jobs,as teachers,doctors,lawyers(1935), the Kristallnacht(1938).In the meantime,the whole world supported the Olympic Games in Berlin,in 1936,despite everything Germany was doing.How ol'Adolf reacted?
He seized the Südettenland,anexed Austria,and ultimately invaded Poland,country whose
naive leadership relied upon its treaty with France and Britain...Appeasement with Hitlerism clearly didn't pay off.
Nowadays,we've got before ourselves,the most formidable,dreadful enemy since 1945.I've
always thought that actually communism was the next big foe.Unfortunately,I've underestimated
the prowess of Islam.On Islam's side,they've got the western left,the Israel-haters,the America's bashers,the United Nations,the mainstream media,and several NGO's.
This battle is being already waged in various fronts,the 9/11 massacre was one of many
other steps from the Islamic side.Beslan was another gruesome step of the ku'ran followers.
Muslims are hunting and killing people in America with impunity.This is something that
America couldn't afford,that is,restoring the old,failed appeasement policy.
America should fight,and fight well,successfully against those Muslims who are plotting and executing a plan that neither Adolf Hiltler nor Stalin would've managed:TO DESTROY AMERICA FROM WITHIN.
