Reader comment on item: Not Child's Play: The Teddy-Bear Intifada

Submitted by Geno M. (United States), Dec 4, 2007 at 20:44

Radical Islam. Islamofascism. Fundamental Islam. Islamism. And twenty other euphemisms that all describe the same monstrous thing. When are we finally going to wake up and smell the carnage? ...

According to thereligionofpeace.com, just since 9/11 over ten thousand (!!) deadly terror attacks have been perpetrated in the name of this nightmarish plague posing as religion. And yet we in the West persist in pacifying ourselves with the comfortable fiction that Islam itself is not to blame. It's the radicals. It's a small minority of fundamentalists. It's the great pumpkin. It's everything but what it really is. Unfortunately for the apologists, what it really is is Islam.

Don't believe its true? Then read the Koran. Like Hitler's manifesto Mein Kampf, the Islamic plan is all laid out in black and white for anyone to see. Anyone with eyes that is. Meanwhile, the so called moderate Muslims continue to ignore the death being dealt in the name of their God. Instead they pressure postage-stamp sized Israel to give up yet more land to the Palestinians. Because really, all the hatred and death would stop if only Israel would be reasonable, right?

Israel, which is literally a tiny fraction the size of its frothing Muslim neighbors, constitutes the only bastion of civilized sanity in the Middle East. Israel exists solely because six million Jews paid the ultimate price for its mortgage. Israel is not the problem. Islam is the problem. Consider the facts. In Saudi Arabia they are flogging girls for the crime of being raped. In Iran, they are denying the holocaust of 20th Century while preparing an atomic holocaust for the 21st.

And in the Sudan they are trying to behead a teacher for allowing her 7 year old student to name his teddy bear Muhammad. In Israel they are planting trees, building cities and undertaking life-saving medical research. Meanwhile, like good Germans during the Third Reich, moderate Muslims worldwide today remain strangely silent while good Muslims wired as human bombs blow up pizza parlors in Jerusalem. How much more evidence is required to see that Islam is utterly incompatible with Western civilization. Essentially, everywhere that a Muslim majority is in place, murder, mayhem, hatred, evil and death follow, like night follows day. As long as Muslims read and believe the Koran, the violence against non-Muslims will never stop. After 9/11 and Beslan, and Madrid and London, you'd think we would finally get it through our heads. The problem is not radical Islam. The problem is just Islam.

Thus, it is time to hold Islam accountable, once and for all. If we wish to preserve the wonderful, precious and fragile civilization that we have so painstakingly built,then maybe it is time for us to take radical steps of our own to preserve our way of life. We must stop compromising with Muslims who use our freedoms against us. Terrorist-linked organizations such as CAIR should be shut down and banned, immediately and entirely.

No more mosques should be built in Judeo-Christian lands, and those that now exist should be monitored. Any hate mongering emanating from a mosque should result in its immediate and permanent shuttering. Until we get a handle on the situation, it is time to cease all immigration of Muslims into Judeo-Christian countries. Next, all violent Muslims, such as those recently rioting in Paris France, must be arrested and deported, quickly and efficiently. We must institute measures such that all Muslims who wish to remain in Judeo-Christian countries agree, in writing, to respect the sanctity and sovereignty of our secular laws.

Failure to do so should result in immediate deportation. Anyone who perceives these measures as too hard should be directed to observe the way law and order is carried out in predominantly Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran. Do we want Sharia law in Newark, NJ and Glasgow Scotland? Until and unless Islam proves itself to be a benign presence, fully compatible with Western civilization, like the pathogen it is, Islam must be challenged, contained and turned back. Sooner or later, our very existence shall depend on the extent to which we implement these measures.
