Michele Bachmann: Beware of radical Islam
StarTribune.com ^ | 8/1/12 | MIchele Bachmann

Posted on 08/02/2012 9:06:42 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

I'm on the case because someone has to question Obama administration's indulgence.

I am immensely aware how vitally important it is to restore confidence in our economy and create quality jobs for Minnesotans. It is also clear that life is becoming increasingly unaffordable for average Americans.

And while I am working tirelessly every day to promote progrowth policies so Minnesota's small businesses will once again invest and hire new workers, I cannot ignore the national-security threats facing our nation.

In a recent interview, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said "the West is asleep on the issue of Islamist extremism."

Sadly, he's right. The panic-stricken reaction to the letters that four of my congressional colleagues and I recently wrote to the Inspectors General of five government agencies, asking them to simply investigate the premise of our concerns, is an illustration of exactly how unwary many of our leaders are here in the United States.

“the West is asleep on the issue of Islamist extremism.”

.
Not only on Islamist extremism but also on other unnatural and aberrant social issues like same sex marriage.

In a recent interview, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said “the West is asleep on the issue of Islamist extremism.”

And yet Tony Blair wants Israel to give up the West Bank for a “peace deal” with Fatah terrorists (with a slice of Hamas on the side).

This article by Michele sure makes more sense than idiots John McCain and John Boehner’s response to this issue was. McCain and Boehner need to explain their position on this and why they think we don’t need to worry about stuff like this. Their response needs to be at a deeper level that what a nice lady Anthony Weiner’s wife Huma is.

Yeah I think she is, but that doesn’t mean we should trust her any more than we trust her husband Bill.

There is no such thing as ‘’extremist Islam’’. All of Islam is extreme.

I’ve known some seemingly nice Muslims.

And where ever you live, are they in the minority at the moment? You wouldn’t be Jewish, would you? Not that that matters much but let’s say that if your Muslim friends are in a minority, how ‘’seemingly nice’’ do you suppose they’ll stay when they become the majority? My truck with Islam is it’s founder and what he demands his followers do. Contrast the life of Mohammed with that of Jesus Christ.

Partly correct Ms Bachmann. You just have to walk away from the radical term. islam is the problem, period. It is a death cult run through fear oppression and terrorism. The problem is not some small group of terrorist. The goal is destruction of all Jews, America and Western civilization.

They are either bought and paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Are closet Sharia lovers who believe you can never criticize Islam.
Or they could also just be idiots confusing Islamist for Islam.
Difficult choice.

“Beware of radical Islam”

The only thing I have a problem with is that Islam IS radical.....moderate Muslims are simply ignorant or false in their peaceful stance.

It’s pagan to the core.

Gov. is not only afraid the very small percentage (their assessment) of Muslims that are radical but also the large percentage of 'peace loving' (their assessment) Muslims.

If you add up the radicals and sympathizers you might find a very small percentage of Muslims that actually just want to live and let live.

The President signed a secret Executive Order allowing Huma to have two spouses.
