Killing the Bin Laden Within ( Excellent article)
Sultan Knish ^ | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 05/06/2011 8:15:21 AM PDT by ventanax5

A group of Navy SEALS may have stormed a Pakistani garrison town and taken off the top of Bin Laden's head, but he still lives on in the heads of the political establishment. The big Bin Laden has gone to feed the sharks, but it is the little Bin Laden who dictated that he receive a Muslim burial, forbade the release of the death photos and warned off the town of Virginia Beach from celebrating their hometown heroes.

It was never the big Bin Laden that the West was afraid of, but the little one. A small turbaned figure that sits in the heads of the establishment and drives its officials and legislators to wonder if they have somehow upset the Muslims this day.

The big Bin Laden could never have imprisoned an American in his own country for even thinking about protesting a mosque. Not with any amount of death or carnage. The big Bin Laden could never have gotten newspapers to refuse to print the Mohammed cartoons. He could kill us, but he could never make us censor ourselves. But the little one sitting in the worried heads of newspaper editors pulled it off. The big Bin Laden could never have normalized the groping of children in airports as a substitute for profiling Muslims, but the little Bin Laden always whispering about how dangerous it is to offend Muslims can convince us to do anything.

At the conclusion of 1984, Winston Smith wins a victory over himself by coming to love Big Brother. But there is no Big Brother. He is the mythical personification of the party.

Thanks for the great article! I read George Orwell’s 1984 (all the way through) for the first time last year. I couldn’t sleep for 3 or 4 nights realizing that we are so close to what he was describing. I think men like Eric Blair and Frederich Hayek were sent by God to warn us. If only we would have listened...

When I reposted this article on my Facebook page, with a few unkind words about the truth regarding Islam, all of a sudden F/Book decides it needs a little ‘security check’ before it posted! I suspect it will be removed. Censorship is alive and well on F/B.

“The worst of these whispers from the mouth of the little Bin Laden, worse than the censorship, the betrayal and the collaboration, is the sense of defeatism. The belief by the establishment that a war with Islam either cannot be won or is not worth winning. That the difference between ourselves and Bin Laden lies in the undifferentiated act of killing itself. And that once we fight back, then we have nothing left worth defending anymore.”

My twisted view is this; We should pass a Bill saying that there will be no mosques for those that worship the Koran. Those who wish to worship the Koran will do so outside the boundaries of these United States because it is against the law to do so on US soil.

You say our Constitution forbids such a law. Currently and for the past 45 years travel to Cuba from CONUS is prohibited. Why? Because Cuba is our enemy. Well so is ISLAM! Forbid it inside our borders. Make the punishments severe, 100% confiscation of all property and 10 years in a prison of our choice, perhaps at the North Pole with no accounting to the United Nations or anyone else. If you are not released in ten years that means you died. No account necessary as to why, how or when. We didn’t account for the enemy who were killed in Iraq , did we? We didn’t care what their names were or anything else about them.
