For those of us who live in the Dar es Harb, which is to say those of us who live in the portion of the planet that refuses to submit to Allah, an excellent lesson in how to eradicate the scourge of Islamic terror can be found in American history. Back before Christian civilization became wracked with self-doubt, America made no bones when it came to defending the lives and property of its citizens and those of its allies. Before Christianity was undermined by the influences of moral relativism, the western democracies generally had a clear and unobstructed view regarding the importance of defending liberty and freedom for all.
An example of such a defense against Islamic terror can be found in the pre World War I actions of General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing. In the early years of the 20th century, there were a number of Islamic terrorist attacks against American forces in the Philippines. General Pershing, acting in his capacity as the Military Governor of Moro Province, responded to the terrorism by capturing 50 terrorists and having them tied to posts for execution.
As the terrorists awaited their fate, General Pershing had his soldiers slaughter two pigs in their presence. The terrorists believed that upon their deaths, their souls would be immediately whisked up to an Islamic paradise where they would be rewarded for their murderous deeds with eternal debauchery. Traditional Islamic texts describe this paradise as one in which alcohol always flows and the soul is eternally indulged with the best of every kind of food and luxury. The Islamic martyr is taught, as an example of one variation of the theme, that he will be eternally rewarded in Paradise with the benefits of a permanent erection and that he will enjoy the endless sexual pleasures of young virginal girls and beautiful boys dressed in silk shirts.
The same traditional texts also indicate that by eating the flesh of a pig, or even touching a pig, the Muslim is condemned to eternal damnation which is why Pershing's captured terrorists were horrified at the sight of the slaughtered pigs. Pershing's soldiers proceeded to dip their bullets into the blood of the pigs, in full view of the terrorists, and then to execute 49 out of 50 who found themselves in front of a firing squad. These men had already been involved in horrible crimes of murder against Americans. The soldiers then dug a large pit, threw the corpses into the pit, and then threw the pig's carcasses on top of the corpses making sure that their bodies were covered with pig's blood and entrails. The surviving 50th man was then let go as an eyewitness.
For the next several decades there was not a single recorded Islamic terrorist attack against an American anywhere in the world. During those same years, however, the centuries old Islamic Holocaust against indigenous Christians reached a crescendo of bloodshed in Turkey with the annihilation of millions of Christian Armenians and the world did nothing. In 1920, a young Muslim terrorist named Hajj Amin el-Husseini initiated a slaughter of Jews praying at the western wall in Jerusalem on Passover and the Jews did nothing. Rather than punishing this man, the British Governor of Palestine, Sir Herbert Samuel, appointed him as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem thus beginning a trend of Islamic genocide against the Jews that continues unabated. Since World War I, in fact, the western policy toward Islamic terror has been a long and shameful string of appeasements, capitulations and defeat.
Perhaps the outrage of the Islamic terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, which resulted in the annihilation of over 3,000 people who had the effrontery to live and work in the Dar es Harb and which was a direct result of decades of appeasement, will prove to be a turning point. Perhaps now, at long last, the free world will regain its sanity and moral compass and stand up to Islamic terror. Perhaps a leader will emerge in the footsteps of General Black Jack Pershing.
We could sure use one during these times....
Snopes lists this as "undetermined" whether true or false, but it lists a fair amount of credible data that leans toward it being false.
He simply refuses to acknowledge that it is Islamofascism that is the real enemy, not "terrorism".
This is a war between the West and the forces of Islamofascism. And Bush should know better.
Calling Islam "a peaceful religion" continuously, is a joke, and Bush should be ashamed of himself. It always sounds like he's trying way too hard to convince himself, let alone any of us.
In a sixty-some page article I have been working on on and off for for about eight months, to be published elsewhere, I explain Bush has an excessively high threshold for something's being beyond a reasonable doubt. When he first bagan running I noticed he has a personality that avoids confrontation. This thing with Hussein fits into another pattern. Buth generally, he avoids realistic confrontation of any kind. This is why he called Ted Kennedy "a fabulous United States Senator" who he liked. This is why Bill Clinton has been allowed to march around acting as if he's still president, or should-be president without serious opposition. He's too intellectual undeveloped or inhibited to see the truth, including about Mohammedism. Believe it if you believe anything in this life.
You're very right, though many don't see the linkage. The creation of a terrorist state for Sadaam's dearest supporters, while a short term plus in terms of our damaged relations with the EU and the Arab world, doesn't say much about the will of America to see the war against terror through. I can envision statues of Sadaam in Ramallah, and they'd be deserved, at least he's been martyred for a cause.
