But, how do we defeat the PC leaders of our own country? I've got an idea!

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Under the link "distancing themselves from Islamists " Dr. Pipes shows that our own leaders don't seem to get it. If they don't, how's the rest of the country going to get it? How are we going to demand action before it's too late and we get hurt badly again? It's been 5 years since 9/11 and the jihadis are stronger than ever. And still, we won't fight! Bush is guilty of gross failure to defend America.

Here's where Bush's statements about how "the terrorists have hijacked a great religion" come in. He's put most of the country off guard by providing only an image of a wild-eyed bomber to explain our problem. From the highest level of the land, Bush's statements have given the people no idea at all about what the source of the problem actually is. Most Americans have no clue that there really ARE Islamist organizations and that caution--and not our normal appeasement--is in order. I'm afraid that we'll see many more "jihads" like the booze jihad at MSP Airport. The consequences could be far worse if the wrong person is trusted with a sensitive job or piece of information.

To help solve this, I'd like to see two things:

(1). Senate hearings on "Islamic Totalitarianism". I know that investigating Haliburton will be better than sex for the Dems, but, after that or with at least equal or higher priority, an investigation of Islamic Totalitarianism is much in order.

(2). Some legislation aimed at stopping regulatory agencies in the U.S. from weaving religious dogma into regulations. This would include the "symbolic walls" of Orthodox Jews as well as Muslims-only prayer rooms and special rules for Muslim taxi drivers. If we don't do something, we'll see Muslims-only stuff all over the place. How about Muslim beaches where men and women are separated? There's no end to this! But, I don't know how many special deals the Christians have already got for themselves that they would refuse to give up and thus make any federal legislation impossible. Will we end up with "God is Great" added to our money? I've never before appreciated our secular government so much!!! To hell with religious airports and religious beaches!
