The absurdity of the Left's ignorance on the issues touching our lives on a daily basis would be cute and risible ... if they weren't so deadly serious.
What the conscious world is observing sweeping over Europe is the direct result of the appeasement by Western leaders of an ideology that wants to see every non-Muslim who rejects submission to Islam, well ... dead.
European leaders - as fools ingesting poison - are welcoming Muslim migrants (mostly male, military age) into their countries. And like leeches to a host, these migrants are connecting to, and siphoning off the public dole.
Most have viewed the videos of Muslim migrants rioting in Germany, and this is just the tip of the iceberg of what Islam has in store for the West. YET, Western leaders are still in denial of the connection between the behavior of violent Muslims and the doctrine of their creed.
A recent example is the Muslim college student at University of California, Merced, who stabbed four on campus, was on the FBI's terror watch list. The Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke lied to the community and media and stated that the perp's actions had nothing to do with his Muslim faith. By concealing this info, Warnke aided the perp in his deed, which could have meant many more victims.
The problem with these types of denial is: what these miscreants are displaying IS the Islam of Muhammed. The one that was responsible for:
- April 1983 bombing of embassy in Beirut (17 Americans killed).
- October 1983 bombing of marine barracks (241 Marines killed in their sleep).
- March 1984, CIA station chief William Buckley kidnapped and murdered.
- September 1984 bombing of U.S. embassy annex northeast of Beirut (24 Americans killed).
- October 1985 hijacking of cruise ship Achille Lauro (murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old wheelchair-bound American tourist).
- December 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 (259 people on board were killed, along with 11 on the ground).
- February 1993, World Trade Center bombing (6 killed).
- June 1996, Khobar Towers bombing (20 killed, 372 wounded).
- November 1997, the Luxor Massacre at Deir el-Bahri (62 killed).
- October 2000, attack on the USS Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden (17 American sailors killed, 39 injured).
- September 2001, four planes hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda hijackers: two planes crashed into World Trade Center and one into the the Pentagon (3,000 killed).
Since 9/11/2001, there have been over 27,000 deadly Islamic terrorists attacks globally. And an old slaughter tactic of Muhammed's has been revived (for the media's cameras) by ISIS: beheading. This particularly barbaric method of murder has made its way to the heartland of America (Oklahoma), where one innocent woman was beheaded by a Muslim, at her workplace, and another was threatened by a Muslim with beheading because she was Christian.
The worst part: our leaders, who have sworn to protect us from enemies in our homeland, are ignoring the most critical factor in protecting the people they serve from additional attacks. They refuse to look at the evidence, the clues, the witnesses OR the experts concerning the common core of ALL these savage attacks on innocent civilians. That core is the ideology that was practiced and taught by Muhammed: Islam.
And NO dreamy or quixotic narrative, nor poetic portrayal can wash away the blood-stained history of this crude culture and its barbaric ways. It is the core of the current miasma that changed everything for free people on September 11th.
We can't change this ideology, but we CAN change the leaders who fail to protect us from the results of its dictates.
Let's begin there.
Shalom through strength.
