Seriously, we are not taking JIHAD seriously. ...Jan 2010

Reader comment on item: Security Theater Now Playing at Your Airport

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Jan 6, 2010 at 21:23

There are many things we could be doing to be more safe, but we are not.

There was more than enough information this Christmas 2009 to stop the latest islamic bomber, but the system failed. It was a civilian who prevented mass murder in the name of allah.

There are islamic imans and others who in England have been caught preaching hate and violence and nothing is done. A few actions, yes, but nothing concrete or effective.

Violence in France, Sweden and Germany by islamonazi people against the native people is at epidemic levels and once again nothing is being done. Just the other day the gentleman who drew the cartoon of the "prophet" mohammed with a bomb in his turbin was the victim of an attempted murder by an islamist.

Immigration levels are high for people leaving islamic countries to come to the west. We could change this but we don't, due to fear of looking like bigots. Most of the people who are coming from islamic countries will have many children. This may be a problem if the percentage of muslims in the west rises above a certain level. Plus years from now the children of these islamists will be having many children of their own. Homegrown terrorism is now a problem, in future years it could be much worse and still we do nothing.

Many airports have private security, sometimes that is great, sometimes the contract goes to the lowest bidder and the results are you get what you pay for. Maybe a new service like a police , or military type of job to look after airport security.

A man walked past security in New Jersey prompting an evacuation, the cameras we "down" that day. There needs to be a true new attitude on every-ones part. Mistakes will happen, when they do we need to learn from them and never repeat that specific one. Sadly we keep making the same mistakes over and over again. Now with islamic violence at the high levels its at we must change our ways of thinking and have everyone think of jihad as being a something that can and will effect each of us.

We as a society are not taking jihad as serious as we should ? No, we as a society are not taking jihad as serious as we NEED to.

Israel has the worlds best system, we have not used it as it takes time and money. Too much time and money in the eyes of some. In light of the fact the islamists have stepped up their war on non-muslims we need to take a long strong look a many different ways we can defend ourselves against the islamonazi.

Due to political correctness, fear, and other factors we have not done all that we can do to be safe.

That will make the next islamic terror attack feel worse, the fact that we could have prevented it. (just like the last shoe bomber on Christmas 2009. This islamist could have been stopped by the government but was not, if he had of blown the plane out of the air and murdered hundreds in the name of allah , it would seem worse because he could have been stopped.

We need not be afraid, or spend huge amounts of money or allow our privacy to be ripped from us in order to be safe, however we do need to be smart.

First, we need to see radical islam as a danger, many people do not see this.( including President Obama et al) Secondly, we need to be able to talk freely with out worry that we will be falsely branded racists. Thirdly, we need to up grade our security, because we are at war.
