Imagine a world in which a young man is locked in a cage, has petrol showered over him and is set alight to be burnt alive. Imagine the triumphant jeering of an audience that has gathered to witness this. Imagine, also, a 12-year-old child with elated determination on his features shooting at close range a kneeling man with his arms tied behind his back. Then picture the spectacle of a hundred beheadings of victim after victim in humiliating uniforms, their hands and feet bound, kneeling with their backs to their black-robed executioners who wield knives to cut their throats as though they were sacrificial lambs.

“My first book was called Among The Believers “
I was trying to remember the title of this book just this weekend. The ‘Believers’ are the world’s Muslims living in Muslim countries circa 1980, when the revolution in Iran was the first indication that trouble was brewing. Good book, prophetic even.
You need to see Glenn Becks presentation of the Armies of Armageddon from last week. The links presented by Beck are stunning.
It is a very good read.
all the Americans who worked to destroy the health and power of the USA,
all who sat idly by as mushy-headed Leftists lead America into a downward spiral of decadence,
all the fools who believed the propaganda of the Left,
who reveled in the decay of Western Civilization,
all the fools who scoffed at the warnings,
all who preferred to indulge in the pleasures of decadence rather than face the truth--
Fools all of them! They are getting what they asked for.
There is a karma that grants the wishes of fools!
Arab civilization around 1000 was roughly on a par with civilizations in Byzantium, India, China, Japan, etc.; not "the most advanced in the world."
It just looked that way to people from Western Europe, which at the time was really, really backward. And not aware of the others, with the exception of Byzantium.
ISIS, to the extent it knows what it wants, intends to return to the time of Mohammed and the Rashidun, the first four "Rightly Guided Caliphs." To most really fundamentalist Sunni Muslims, Islam started going downhill with the murder of the last of them in 661.
The world has been there done that (50+million dead, many slain in unimaginable brutality!) we understand when Netanyahu said Never again. Yet modern day “Neville Chamberlains” insist on looking the other way as the encroaching barbarians demand another Holocaust to finish the Jew and conquer the world. Seems there’s a strange affection by modern progresssives for the totalitarianism that is ISIS (Obama?).
Study history... in early WW2, Leftsts in England, USA and Europe were reluctant in their support of the war against fellow socialist Hitler only after he attacked the precious socialist experiment Soviet Union (June 22, 1941) did they fully join in the fight. Is WW3 soon?
Jews who voted for odumbo are some of the most compassionate, misguided people in the world.
V.S. Naipul is my favorite author.
V.S. Naipaul is a fine writer, a conservative, and is strongly pro-American. In the miserable days immediately after the 9/11 attack, he wrote an opinion column that was unreservedly sympathetic to the U.S. and expressed complete confidence that we would rally the world against Islamic terrorism and hunt down and kill Bin Laden.
Interesting many of the greatest living English Lit authors are not ethnically English.
Can you recommend any of Mr. Naipul’s works? Just as a background I mainly read history and Victorian Lit.
Senator Says Obama’s ‘Open Hostility’ to Netanyahu Causing Democrats to Lose Trust in President
Egypt’s Morsi accused of leaking secrets to Iran

Well, really, all of it.
Among the Believers and Beyond Belief are a must.
Others I would recommend are:
A Way in the World
Guerrillas (concerning conflicts and guerilla warfare in Africa)
A Bend in the River (concerning guerilla warfare in Africa)
The Middle Passage: Impressions of Five Societies British, French and Dutch in the West Indies and South America (travelogue, histories of these places)
He wrote many books and short stories about Trinidad (an island in the Caribbean where he was born and grew up). Some are autobiographical or based or fictional but based on real historical events and real people he has knew
Imagine a world in which the president of the United States is “sympathetic” to Islamic terrorism, who aids, abets and excuses Islamic outrages, and never misses a chance to denigrate the state of Israel.
Obama’s Arab “Spring” is exactly the success he dreamed of.
