Hey Mista Taliban tali me banna. Ha, Ha. That sounds like a Calypso song, but all joking aside this is very serious business. What we are dealing with here is our own lives being put on the line. Either we have the guts to get up off our duffs and fight or we might just as well put a gun to our heads and pull the trigger.. Letting the islamist kill us without any resistance is merely commiting suicide by proxy.

Maybe there are some out there who feel that their lives are not worth living for what ever reason they might suppose but I for one am not one of them. I do not hate myself and I do not hate humanity despite all of humanities deficiencies and failings. There is still something grand about the human species and I believe it can be cultivated if we really have faith and perservere.

Islam, on the other hand, holds that we are all guilty until proven innocent by converting to islam. But guilty of what? Being human? Islam seeks to destroy the very human soul that dwells within each of us and turn us all into a lot of genuflecting robots much as the Roman church sought to do. There is nothing new in any of this in our history. We've all seen it before and some of us have lived through it and survived only by some remarkable miracle of faith.

When a muslim stands in front me and accuses me of murder I did not commit because a relative of his was killed in a fight with an american he is doing exactly the same thing that he is accusing me of. When he thinks it's alright for him to kill me in revenge for the death of his relative am I supposed to accept his distorted reasoning and offer up my neck to his knife? HEY! I'm not that stupid! I'm going to kill him first and to hell with the consequences. I don't care at all if he has a wife and kids. He should have thought of that before he called me out. I don't give a damn about his silly honor or his pride.

If he makes a fool of himself by calling me out and losing the fight he should have the sense to call it quits and go home and forget about it. Instead he sits in his corner darkly pondering revenge both for his relative and himself for the humiliation that he caused himself by picking a fight with me in the first place. Now I have to start carrying a gun to protect myself because he doesn't have the cojones to admit he was wrong. HE's comming after me, not I after him. So what should I do? Sit there and wait for him to drive by and shoot me or should I go out after him and shoot him first?

Right! so now he's brought me down to his level and I have to play his game in order to survive for myself. What does that make me? Should I really care what some other people might think? Any of you liberal moralists out there want to stand in my shoes?
