Reader comment on item: [William Blum and] Al-Qaeda's Leftist Brigade
in response to reader comment: Reply to Frank

Submitted by D Williams (United States), Sep 3, 2006 at 20:31

Dear Frank and Sidda,

Within the text of your own writings lies the all the drama and paradox of Captain Kirk and the Starship enterprise fooling around with the space time continuum and the all confusing grandfather clause. You know, if you go back in time and kill your grandfather, then your father is never born and neither are you and therefore, how can you go back in time and kill your grandfather if you are never born etc.

Let me bring you up to speed in terms of the real world. We are a free country outlawing a book (per Frank's idea). But how can we be a free country if we outlaw certain forms of religious expression and thought, after all you are encouraging the outlawing of thoughts and ideas? By outlawing the religion you remove the freedom of choice, therefore freedom. You then send us on that slippery slope that ends in razor blades.

There is no getting around it. If you pass this law you curb freedom for everyone, when it is the actions a very small amount of people who are creating the problem. This is the same approach as outlawing all guns to all citizens because a few nuts shoot some people; or dear old Pat Moynihan's approach of taxing ammunition at a 10,000% rate.

Why is it that the only approach that people can find is to either limit our rights, or sit idly with a cozy warm spot for the thumb?

Why is America so spoiled that they cant get off their rotund behinds and condemn the actions of the few without seeing the complicity of the many?

Remember this is the country that invented the term passive aggression. Originally used by black slaves in the south to slow production and help the North win the war (yes I know there was a great deal more to it than that, but let that point slide and grasp the bigger picture here). Islam is very much the same thing, yet turned inside out and backwards. They have the luxury of having the passive masses. Those who do not espouse hate or killing the infidel brothers with whom they world side by side everyday, yet who tithe into a system that is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the death of the infidel. However they also get to have the fanatical, fundamentalist, fascist, terrorist, radical, murderous… (I am running out of breath!) Muslim. You see we are so weak in nature anymore, that we do not have the ability to even define our enemy.

That is dangerous of and by itself. Sun Tsu stated that ALL warfare is based upon deception. He also said that, "when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles."

While we here in the free world remain unable to identify our enemy, the Muslim has been taught who their enemy is from the day they are born. New inductees to Islam are treated to crash courses in identifying the enemy, and all Muslims are given regular updates and classes on who their enemy is by way of the Mosques.

I realize that this will bring harsh and quick condemnation from those who say that Islam is a peaceful religion. But truly is it a peaceful religion? Since the inception of Islam almost 1400 years ago Islam has been at war with the rest of the world. Further, they have been unstoppable. Every border (either religious or political) they have come across they have battered down and prevailed. They have been a relentless force upon the planet and have grown from a handful of followers to nearly 1.8 billion people now on the globe.

Most of these 1.8 billion people are indeed peaceful, but they pay into a system that supports the military branch of its government. Its clerics pass edicts of life and death on political systems around the world. They condemn those who speak against Islam to death. All the while the peaceful people of Islam vote for these actions by continuing to pay into the system. I say the Islam as a whole is not peaceful. I say that though some of its follower's see that violence and death of others objectionable, they also see it as necessary to bring peace to the planet by way of Islam.

We do not see the "American" Muslim up in arms and angry over the attempts of the "radicals" to down American jetliners over the Atlantic Ocean. No we see CAIR condemning American efforts to define the enemy. We see money from the US going through Mosques in the US, to terrorist organization in the Mid-East. So I say sue them. I believe that the American citizens losing finances, loved ones, or property should sue the Mosques here in the US. Thereby, rerouting money that would go over-seas back into American pockets to be used for assuaging their loss. I believe that the enemy is Islam. The Koran says the all who are not Muslim are infidels. That the murder of an infidel is not murder and a Muslim who kills an infidel cannot be tried for murder. Therefore the entire system preaches hate and death to all who are not Muslim (your second class citizenry, Sidda).

How is it the left can kowtow to CAIR knowing that in the writings that CAIR reads prescribes death even to the far left, and the moderate left, and the whole of the American way of life? Are they blind, ignorant of history, or do they have a secret agenda?

No Frank we should not outlaw the Koran. We should have it as required reading for all ages here in the US. With particular attention being paid to how the infidel is to be treated. And no Sidda, this is not confusing; Islam is the enemy, form top to bottom. Because if the Muslim wants decency and abhors violence and the murder of others they will either rewrite the laws for Islam, or they will abandon it for the hateful religion that it is.

Do not forget that the Druidic religion of the Celts was outlawed too. The Celts too were a hateful and murderous group of people, who used the guise of religion as an excuse to commit genocide. It never ceases to amaze me what horrible acts people are willing to commit in service to their one true god.
