Recently we awoke to discover a radical Islamist had killed at least forty-nine more American citizens. Around noon our president informed us that it was a terror attack but again refused to link it with Islam even though the killer called 911 and informed them of his status with ISIS and screamed Allah Akbar as he was battling the SWAT squad. The One keeps getting the memo – he just refuses to accept its content!
This is certainly not the first time that our nation has been attacked by Islamic radicals and it won’t be the last. Islamic extremists have been at war with America for more than a decade – the problem is that America has yet to join the fray. Yes, this administration has flown some Drones over suspected ISIS/ISIL caravans and suspected strongholds and dropped a few bombs – but nothing of substance has been or will be done before January 20, 2017 – and not then if Hillary is anointed to continue the denial and pacification project.
When pressed to profile, or institute more stringent Muslim immigration policies, or more earnestly monitor young Muslims the president responded with “That’s not who we are.” In just San Bernardino, CA and Orlando, FL; at least 63 innocent Americans have been killed and 75 wounded – some of which may yet die. If the dead could have a voice they would no doubt take umbrage with our beloved leader.
There has yet to be an acknowledgment from the One or his “best qualified candidate ever” president wannabe partner that Islamic radicals are responsible for the acts of terrorism against American citizens. It ain’t gonna change folks – not until the attitude and commitment of America’s leadership changes. These killers are not “lone wolves” – they are committed sleepers who have been radicalized and are awaiting the appropriate opportunity to kill Americans in mass numbers. Just how many and where these sleepers are is anyone’s guess.
Certainly not all Islamists is fanatical or committed to the destruction of America – no doubt most in America just want to live in peace and raise their children. Not all Germans were Nazis or fascists – but the vast majority of Germans sat on their hands as the Nazis killed six million Jews. In the selfsame manner the majority of Muslims in America is as silent as church mice as the carnage continues by these modern versions of Nazis—acknowledged to be Islamic extremist by those who are correct as opposed to politically correct.
The Hadith are collections of sayings attributed to Muhammad and Islamic religious leaders. The Hadith opinion expressed regarding homosexuality is: “When a man mounts another man, the throne of God shakes.” and “Kill the one that is doing it and also kill the one that it is being done to.” Sharia law conforms to the edits of the Hadith! ISIS/ISIL has hung, thrown off buildings to their death, and burned homosexuals and some Muslim countries use the death penalty to punish homosexuals. The Qur’an requires that the enemies of Allah be killed and “enemies” can be anyone current religious leaders want to define as an enemy – people who defame the Prophet, speak out against Islam, or simply live in a free and open society.
Sometimes things have to get much worse before they can get better. Our approach to the growing Muslim problem in our country falls within that category. By allowing improperly vetted Muslim “refugees” into America the One is playing Russian roulette with our citizens – we can only wonder how many of the “refugees” will be ISIS infiltrators and perform acts of carnage against our citizens.
The travel of young Muslims from America to Libya or Syria has been curtailed – now young Muslims are being encouraged to stay in our country and kill us on our own ground – obviously some are compliant and successful.
Liberal Democrats don’t want to offend any potential voting group – so they won’t confront the growing Muslim violence in America in any meaningful way. They have decided rather to wage war against AR-15 style rifles. Jobs are important, as are other issues, but if our sons and daughters are being slaughtered merely because they can be conveniently killed, all the other issues pale in comparison.
Those who insist on fighting a war against semi-automatic weapons only deflect from the problem of Islamic extremists and convince Jihadists that we are a nation of dumb-asses.
Have a good week.
