It happened in Nicaragua before

Reader comment on item: [Freedom House report on] Saudi Venom in U.S. Mosques

Submitted by Arnie Fishman (United States), Feb 2, 2005 at 15:27

Here is a parallel situation to Islam in America. Just read the book Nicaragua Betrayed by A. Somoza (he wrote it before the marxists assassinated him in 198_). Basically the marxists began infiltrating key institutions in his pro-western nation such as the schools, the media, the Catholic Church and the branches of political parties. Somoza was a person dedicated to freedom at all costs. He knew about these infiltrations into his society yet for the sake of freedom did nothing to stop them from growing and having more and more influence in the country. He was mislead into this tragic way of thinking because he underestimated his enemies resolve and that they do not play fair—they play for keeps. The marxists with the aid of the US State Department ran him out of the country and he was eventually killed for the freedom he loved.

Islam in this country needs to thought of in the same way as Marxism. It is an idealogy that will not be satisfied to stop. They are in it for the long haul and as long we pussy-foot around with political correctness and being nice, this threat will continue to grow and grow.

Someday we will wonder how it all happened but then it will be too late.
