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

Submitted by Jacqueline (United States), Aug 14, 2006 at 22:47

Back in 1993 when the first World Trade center bombing happened, I have to be honest that it did not cause much of a blip on my radar screen. I thought about it for a while and then it faded from memory for the most part. Since 9/11, however, I have paid a lot more attention to what is happening here in America, and alarmingly , more so in The United Kingdom and Europe. It seems the more I read and research, about Islam, the darker the picture becomes.

The one thing that comes to mind with all the semantics going around is that we are constrained by "political correctness" when it comes to defining this menace. But, if it quacks like a duck, and walks like a duck, then it's a duck. Calling it by any other name doesn't change that fact.

Now I do not have the extensive experience and knowledge that some others may have when it comes to understanding this phenomenon, but if we do not learn from history , we are bound to repeat it. Studying history from just over 60 years ago, we need to remember what happened when a path of appeasement was tried with Hitler. WW II was the result with the deaths of millions of innocent people. Our Western governments have not learned that historical lesson very well it would seem.

There is an excellent little book by a former Muslim, Abdullah Al Araby, titled "The Islamization of America". It has a lot of solid information and observations from one who has seen it and escaped from it.

Included in this book's prelude were remarks made by a Catholic Bishop, His Exc. Most Rev. Guiseppe Germano Bernardini, O.F. M. Cap., Archbishop of Izmir in relation to Islam's invasion of European society. The Bishop had lived in Turkey for over 42 years. Turkey is 99% Muslim. In those remarks the Bishop shared a comment made to him a few years ago by an Islamic cleric which really got me thinking:

"Thanks to your democratic laws we will invade you; thanks to our religious laws we will dominte you."

Are we that blind that we do not see what is happening? Islamists are bent on our destruction, and the so-called "peaceful" bunch is brainwashed, ill-informed, afraid or just plain don't care to rock the boat. The smaller, militant Muslim minority does the dirty work and the larger, so-called peaceful Muslim majority squawks about "politically incorrect" tags or names applied to Muslims who bomb airliners, buildings, cars, etc.

We need to be careful using politically correct speech, that we don't obscure the obvious. We are in the middle of WWW III, and it is going to get a lot worse before it might get better.

Israel is on the front lines of this war and they get it. We don't.
