Reader comment on item: America's Rude Islamists

Submitted by Tim Burton (United Kingdom), Apr 23, 2006 at 14:55

I predict that we are going to see a lot more of this (throughout Dar-al Harb, not just the United States).

As long as the authorities are prepared to turn a blind eye to acts of sedition and treason (witness the craven police and government response to the anti-cartoon protests in London recently) then the Islamists, like any other playground bully, will feel that there is nothing standing in their way between them and total subjugation of Western democracy and the free world.

What is needed is more of the iron fist and less of the velvet glove. Islam is a clear and present danger to the democratic ideal and to Western democracy. Only a clear statement of our intentions will suffice - that is, we will not tolerate the current state of affairs where Islamists are allowed to display their hatred of us, while at the same time any expression by us of fear or disapproval of Islamists and their actions is seen as racist and Islamophobic.

As a citizen of the United Kingdom, I (and many of my colleagues, friends and acquaintances) will be switching our allegiance to the BNP - a party that is not afraid to stand up to the bullying and intimidatory tactics of the Islamists in this country.

I only hope that a sufficient proportion of the populace of all Western democracies will come to realise that addressing the danger that Islamism poses to our long-term future must be put to the forefront and come before any other political priorities.

To paraphrase - " It Ain't Islamophobic If There's Something To Be Afraid Of"
