  • Terrorism:  The Global War Against Jews, Christians & Western Civilization
  • The War Within:  Eliminating Religion in the U.S.

 

Patriot Post:  "The threat to the West is vastly more than bin Laden and Al Qaeda .... The greater danger is the ferment in Islam that is generating radical ideas in an unknown, but growing percentage of grass-roots Muslims around the world—very much including in Europe and, to a currently lesser extent, in the United States. A nation cannot design (and maintain public support for) a rational response to the danger if the nature and extent of the danger is not identified, widely reported and comprehended. What are we dealing with? A few maladjusted 'youth'? Or a larger and growing number of perfectly well-adjusted men and women—who just happen to be adjusted to a different set of cultural, religious (or distorted religious) and political values. And does it matter that those values are inimical to western concepts of tolerance, democracy, equality and religious freedom?... Denying the existence of evil (or refusing to be judgmental about it) has never proved a reliable method for defeating it." —Tony Blankley 

It's Time For Christians To Be 'Offended' by Doug Patton
Everyone is offended these days. Muslins ... Jews ... Atheists ... Blacks ...Hispanics ... Homosexuals ... Native Americans ... You name it. The list goes on and on and on. In fact, we are not even surprised any more when lawsuits are filed and complaints are registered over "offenses" real or imagined.  >> Read Full Column

 

War on Terror and Free Trade Are Incompatible, Expert Says

 

 

Iranian Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh:
"The United States has the power to cause harm and pain, but the United States is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the U.S. wishes to choose, let the ball roll." • Read More

 

 

The Patriot Post

 

"The quagmire isn't in Iraq but at home. For five years, beginning with the designation of 'war on terror,' the President's public presentation has been consistent: Islam is a great religion, religion of peace, marvelous stuff, White House Ramadan Banquet the highlight of the calendar, but, sadly, every barrel has one or two bad apples, even Islam believe it or not, and once we've hunted those down we'll join the newly liberated peace-loving Muslim democracies in a global alliance of peace-loving peaceful persons. Most sentient beings have been aware that there is, to put it mildly, a large element of evasion about this basic narrative, but only now is it being explicitly rejected by all sides." —Mark Steyn

Muslim: I attacked 'out of love for Allah'
Man who barreled SUV into 9 people sends letter to N. Carolina TV station, cites Quran in defense

"Allah gives permission in the Quran for the followers of Allah to attack those who have raged war against them, with the expectation of eternal paradise in case of martyrdom and/or living one's life in obedience of all of Allah's commandments found throughout the Quran's 114 chapters.  My attack on Americans at UNC-CH on March 3rd was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah," wrote Mohammed Taheri-azar in a letter sent to WTVD-TV, an ABC affiliate in Durham.  He said he had intended to kill the people he struck. 

A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations told the Associated Press Taheri-azar's claims of religious support for his actions are an old and repudiated claim.  "Islamic scholars have clearly and repeatedly stated that attacks on innocent civilians of any kind are prohibited by Islam and should be repudiated," spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said yesterday.  Read more at WorldNetDaily

UNC Grad in Court on Alleged Hit and Run
A University of North Carolina graduate from Iran, accused of running down nine people on campus to avenge the treatment of Muslims, said at a hearing Monday that he was "thankful for the opportunity to spread the will of Allah."   Read more.

WO Comment:  Islamic terrorism has reached the streets of America.  Apparently the exhortations of the "Islamic scholars" are not reaching some Muslims.  Instead of scholars Islam perhaps needs a central religious authority, like the Catholic Pope and cardinals, along with getting the word out to all followers:  "attacks on innocent civilians are prohibited."  And with news reports like the above it's not surprising to see reports like the one below:

Negative perception of Islam increasing

As the war in Iraq grinds into its fourth year, a growing proportion of Americans are expressing unfavorable views of Islam, and a majority now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.  The poll found that nearly half of Americans -- 46 percent -- have a negative view of Islam, seven percentage points higher than in the tense months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Vision America

Many who practice the more radical forms of Islam are turning their venom on Christians around the world, and few are willing to call that persecution what it is.  If Islam is a religion of peace, as we are often told, why are more of its leaders not speaking out against their extremist followers who are killing innocent men and women around then world in the name of Allah?  In India, Bangladesh, the Sudan, and around the world, churches are being destroyed by Muslims, and followers of Christ are being murdered or carried away into slavery, for the simple crime of being Christian.  There is a war against Christianity raging and you cannot win the war until first you face it honestly.

In America, Muslims, Jews, atheists and others are allowed to pursue their religious beliefs freely without fear, and rightfully so.  But in the Arab world, far too often you can be arrested or worse, lose your life, for the crime of carrying a Bible openly or discussing your Christian views publicly. Our soldiers are shedding their blood in Iraq to secure the freedom of differing Moslem sects to pursue their faith freely.  However, they cannot themselves, openly express their Christian faith while there.  What's wrong with this picture?
