Woe to me that I dwell amidst the tents of Kadar. I am a man of peace but they are for war. Psalms

Reader comment on item: "At War with Islamic Fascists"

Submitted by Michael (United States), Aug 14, 2006 at 14:06

Violence can not be separated fom the religion of Islam. Islam was birthed by violence, was violent in adolescence, made violence his constant companion in adulthood. Islam's hand is against every man everywhere and at all times. The relative pacification of Islam that the world enjoyed post WWI was due to its humiliation and dismantelment of the Ottoman Empire. The weakness of Western Civilization has revitalized Islam. It's the religion, its tenents, its mandates. Dancing around the "R" word only serves to embolden Islam's ummah and hamstring an effective response when we refuse to see that the driving motivation of Muslim terrorism is this dark religion. Just as there cannot be moral equivalence between a terrorist and his victim, there is not moral equivalence among religions. We must face the ugly fact: Muslims, with some exceptions, hate non-Muslims and want to kill or dominate them. They're more honest than we in iterating this passionate goal. This is the begining of the begining of WWIII and we need clarity and the full force of our convictions if Western Civilization and particularly America and Israel are to survive.
