in response to reader comment: CONSPIRACY THEORIES

Submitted by Daisy (United States), Jan 28, 2006 at 18:11

I agree with you. It's vitally important to recognize that criminal Islam, like the criminal Mafia, feeds on fear .. and the fear is manufactured by Islamic conspiracy theories which in turn is held in place by terrorizing actions .. reality is ignored in favor of fear-toughened delusional 'thinking'.

If only Islamists would understand the nature of personal integrity and the true power of objective truth. Instead, they rely upon unwholesome lies and fear-mongering practices that result in fractured lives. Courage is needed but not employed. As a substitute for courage, they attempt to hide their cowardice in terror-making and use effete conspiracy theories in place of rigorous truth seeking. In these ways, they perpetuate their self-loathing and harm others along with themselves.

The Mafia was largely defeated when they were called what they were (cowardly thugs) and brought to accountability. The people most directly intimidated by the Mafia had to learn to stand up and say "Stop." They could finally do this with the protection and committed backup of civilized law-enforcement. Muslims must recognize the backup they now have ... backup provided by a more highly organized civilization than their own and they must learn to say, "Stop." and they must mean it. Western Islamist enablers must also learn the value of objective truth and give up their own conspiracy theories about our current administration.

If Islamists and their enablers continue to wallow in fearful conspiring, the conclusion can only be more violent.
