Entertain the Devil

Reader comment on item: More Fulbrights for Islamists

Submitted by John R. Peacher (United States), Apr 24, 2006 at 19:28

It appears some universities in the West would invite Satan, the Devil himself, to dinner! I cannot fathom being in the same room with anyone who even remotely entertains or supports in any way the murder of civilians who are shopping, riding a bus, or visiting a resort for vacation. Unless, of course, it was a dinner like Joseph Stalin used to give, wine and dine them and sentence them to death immediately after the meal.

As an aside, I would do the same to any administrator or organization who entertained anyone of like mind. Fighting for ones nation under an organized army is one thing and is acceptable; lines are drawn, well understood, and may the best man win. Anything less is terror and murder and must be dealt with immediately. We must stop fooling ourselves thinking we can change Islamists into thinking rationally; a leopard cannot change its spots, no matter how hard we try and the temporary "whitewash" some are attempting will not last.
