Appeasement of islam

Reader comment on item: In 1796, U.S. Vowed Friendliness With Islam
in response to reader comment: Appeasement of Islam

Submitted by sgi (Canada), Nov 8, 2006 at 13:18

The "war on terror" is a fraud. I have come to this conclusion reluctantly but the facts speak for themselves. As you say, the most damning is the fact that nothing has been done to date to stop the flow of Saudi money to radical Imams and mosques in the West that promote the radical ideology we are at war with.

Meanwhile, Muslims in the West continue to become more radicalized, demanding more concessions and accomodations from their fellow citizens, more militant, more emboldened. Not all Muslims by any means, but enough to alarm and frighten. Our University campuses in particular are bending over backwards to accomodate them. In Canada at one of our University campuses, the student union has established a "Taskforce to Address the Needs of Muslim Students", which seeks to gather information from Muslim students who claim they have been victims of intolerance. Frankly, their incessant and belligerant ranting about Palestine and Israel is indeed intolerable. Their support for Hamas and Hezbollah is equally intolerable.

While our militaries fight overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan we are losing the battle at home with unrestricted immigration from Muslim countries, unrestricted Saudi funding of radical Imams and mosques, and unrestricted accomodation of Muslim prejudice and intolerance. Only one front in this war is being fought and it's debatable whether we're winning or losing. The other front is undeniably losing.
