The problem isn't them. The problem is us.

Reader comment on item: Islam Drives the Social and Legal Agenda in the West

Submitted by Charles Martel (United States), Dec 18, 2014 at 01:04

Our Islamic enemies have a key advantage that few recognize let alone articulate out loud. Monstrously disfigured and downright obscene as it is, their belief system inspires a level of passion in its adherents that is entirely lacking from our side of the line. But where is our passion? Where is the fire in our belly to avenge the murdered innocents, Christians, Jews, secularists, HIndus and all the rest?

Why do our so-called leaders tiptoe around the beast in the room for fear of "hurting Muslims feelings"? Is this not the height of cowardice and idiocy?

If we know that the root cause of Islamism "is" Islam, ---and quite obviously it is--- then how and why do we continue to tolerate this abomination in our midst? Only those few like Geer Wilders, Pamela Geller and a few others appear to express themselves, passionately, forcefully, and yes stridently. Many of the rest of our commentators, even those such as the esteemed Dr. Pipes appear, to my eye, to be still trying to talk sense to a "rabid dog".

In my view the time for talk is long over. Islam must be recognized, out loud, and by those who have the voice and authority to speak, as the virulent, violent, atavistic evil it's long proven itself to be. There can be no accommodation with those infected by the mind rabies of Islam. The only answer is to treat it precisely as Naziism was treated after the onset of WWII. Islam shares many horrid characteristics in common with Naziism. But instead of one Hitler, there are legions.

The time for accommodation and efforts at reaching common cause with "moderate Muslims" is over. Geert Wilders and like thinkers have the right idea. Now, before Islam destroys the planet entirely, it's time to put their plan into action.
