events that took place in London on July 7th and July 21st, 2005
provided a catalyst for me to publicly express below the view which I have
held privately for many years.
fact that both these terrorist incidents were the work
of a "home grown" Islamic terrorist "sleeper cell" made up of Muslims who
had been in Great Britain for years, some since birth, rather than
"outsiders", as was the case with the incidents of 9/11/2001, confirms the
suspicions of those, like myself, who, even before 9/11 have considered
every Muslim in the USA a potential danger to our way of life and someone
who must be treated
with watchful suspicion.
It is only good judgment to always remember that Islam teaches that all non-believers must
eventually be converted to Islam, killed, or subjugated and enslaved.
We must also not forget that Islam is also the only faith which preaches that lying to non-believers and
entering into treaties and alliances with them which you fully intend to break, is
acceptable behavior, as long as it somehow furthers the cause of Islam.
For these reasons, no Muslim, regardless of the platitudes they may mouth in public, can be considered
as anything but a potential threat, fifth columnist, terrorist, or
financial backer of worldwide Islamic terrorism. Even Muslims who may not
personally believe all the things that Islam preaches regarding outsiders
can be pressured by those who do into contributing funds to al-Qaida
or other terrorist groups. Some, when caught, have claimed this as their
defense. For that reason, non-Muslims who continue to
patronize Muslim owned and operated businesses in their community run the
risk of funding terror with every purchase.
There are those who will suggest that such thoughts and actions only serve
to increase the number of Muslims who hate us. My response is that the
assumption that any specific individual Muslim does not already hate us is
more dangerous than their hatred for us itself, as it only creates a false
sense of security for us and allows them greater opportunity to inflict
Muslim Reaction to Danish
Political Cartoons - No Surprises Here
a golden opportunity to show some class, by refusing to rise to the bait
of a series of political cartoons portraying their religion as violent,
Muslims around the world instead reacted predictably, engaging in exactly
the type of behavior that caused those cartoons to be created. They
have even been unable to mask the true extent of their hatred for all
non-Muslims by confining their displays of ignorant savagery to the
destruction of Danish flags and assaults on Danish citizens. Instead, the
are using this "provocation" as yet another excuse to attack any and all
Christians and Jews. I can only hope their actions have removed any doubt
of the true nature of Islam from the minds of all but the most hopelessly
I must add that, as a staunch Republican, I find it disturbing and
disheartening that President Bush and his Secretary of State have as
little regard for freedom of the press as their comments on this issue

wholeheartedly. I found it on BladeForums, with no attribution given, so I

We wake up this morning to see
video on CNN showing rampaging Muslims around the world. In Europe, the
Middle East, the Pacific Rim ... Muslim Mobs spreading mayhem. It seems
that these mighty mad Muslims are rioting and firing their ever-present
AK-47s into the air because of cartoons. Yup ... this latest epidemic of
Muslim outrage comes to us because some newspapers in Norway and Denmark
published some cartoons depicting Mohammed.
Muslim outrage huh. OK ... let's do a little historical review. Just some
Muslims fly commercial airliners into buildings in New York City. No

Let's go way back. Muslims kidnap and kill athletes at the Munich Summer
Olympics. No Muslim outrage.
Muslims hijack a TWA flight and to enforce their demands they shoot an
unarmed U.S. sailor passenger and throw his body out on the tarmac. No

Death, destruction and mayhem around the world at the hands of Muslims ..
no Muslim outrage
... but publish a cartoon depicting Mohammed with a bomb in his turban and
all hell breaks loose.
Come on, is this really about cartoons? They're rampaging and burning
flags. They're looking for Europeans to kidnap. They're threatening
innkeepers and generally raising holy Muslim hell not because of any
outrage over a cartoon. They're outraged because it is a basic part of the
Islamic jihadist culture to be outraged. If you are Muslim you don't
really need a reason. You just need an excuse. Wandering around,
destroying property, murdering children, firing guns into the air and
feigning outrage over the slightest perceived insult is to a jihadist what
tailgating is to a Steeler's fan.
I have heard again and again these bloodthirsty murderers do not represent
the majority of the world's Muslims. That may be true. When though, will
this vast number of "peaceful" Muslims become outraged at the behavior of
the jihadists? When will they take to the streets to express their outrage
at the radicals who are making their religion the object of worldwide
hatred and ridicule? Islamic writer Salman Rushdie wrote of these silent
Muslims in a New York Times article three years ago. "As their ancient,
deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is
hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants,
fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming?"
Indeed. Why not?
Could it be that large numbers of peaceful Muslims are themselves too
terrified of reprisals to speak up? Or could it be that the radicalization
of Islamic culture is so far along that the silent Muslim majority
secretly agrees with the jihadists but is unwilling to say so in public?
