Our enemy, unfortunately, IS Islam...AND Political Correctness

Posted on 09/22/2001 7:32:10 AM PDT by gg188

Experts cited in other FR posts tell us there are MANY terrorist cells here among us now. Who do we have to fear more---THEM or POLITICAL CORRECTNESS??

I am sure that Bush knows that it ISN'T a case of "we've got to root out a very small number of terrorists," etc.

There are 1.5 billion Islams in the world. At least 10 to 15 percent of them would obey their leaders and join a jihad agst the USA.

When we strike Osama, no matter how much evidence we have on Osama, and no matter whether there are collateral casualties, it will just incite all the other Islamics or whatever they're called. The nations like Afghanistan will attempt to exact more terror.

And within our country, it is downright frightening to think of how many "sleepers" they have here. They have been planting them here for a number of years. This, according to mideast experts.

When it comes to states who support or harbor terrorists, the ONLY way we are going to stop them is to reign so much destruction on them that they have to stop---because they either choose to live or because they are dead. If we do this, other nations will condemn us and have a hissy, and here in the USA on campuses and in Hollywood we'll face opposition that will fill the cable channels every bit as much as the attack has since Sept 11.

As for terrorists among us, political correctness will allow them to destroy us. We are going to have to look at immigrants here, and look hard. Unfair? Yes. But the choice is this or death and the end of our nation. This will not be acceptable to the "we are the world" crowd, who are more concerned that someone will have their feelings hurt than that terrorists have the opportunity to kill more people.

I am afraid it's more serious than we think---NOT because we CAN'T overcome it, but because we do not have the WILL to overcome it because it would require us to do grossly politically incorrect things. That program last night profoundly gives insight into the state of mind of the latte states and the Gore voters.

The faction within Islam that is the problem supports the United States of Islam concept. A 100 year war to dominate the world.

We need to understand that the plan is a 100 year plan. Here in the states we have trouble planning beyond the weekend these radicals are planning at an enourmous level and we need to switch our thinking not for ourselves but future generations.

The longer their plan is executed the harder it will be to stop. A complete and total solution needs to exercised with EXTREME PREJUDICE against the United States of Islam. This concept can never become reality!

Our country needs to be completely united in this cause and should be the hallmark of every citizen each day!

In addition I totally agree about PC...it has to stop as well as politics. It is a new era!

Did you see the TV program last night? I think what it represented has shaken me more and made me more concerned about this situation than anything since 9/11.

Did anyone else see Chris Matthews last night (Friday) redefining 'profiling' so it fit into taking a good hard look at potential terrorists?

He also mentioned that before anyone touches the US soil they have no first or second amendment rights, so stop them before they get into the country.

It would almost be humorous to listen to these goobers back-track if they hadn't contributed so heavily to placing us in this spot to begin with.

My parents were the WWII generation, the greatest generation. I instinctively, reflexively put any aspect of this up to the yardstick of how they handled Japan and Germany. Now THAT frightens me...

Take anything anyone says or does now and imagine it as the response to Hiroito and to Hitler. Say, after Pearl Harbor, entertainment superstars get together and say NOTHING about patriotism or war, but rather have a telethon that emphasizes their concern that someone in the USA might say something mean to a Japanese-American.

Prejudice against Arabs who live in America, whatever someone THINKS about this subject and diversity, etc.---this is NOTHING compared to the WAR we face. And these leftist idiots among us---like those who appeared last night, with only a couple of exceptions I can think of (Clint talked tough; Petty was the ONLY one who sang an appropriate song)---are too DOGMATIC to admit that we won't have to WORRY about diversity and hate if we are destroyed by Islam.

Holy cow, friend: the 2 hour program that was on EVERY network and a total of about 40 cable channels, a whiney love-in of entertainment stars sobbing, "Can't we all get along" and "give peace a chance," and featuring sad little apparently Arab girls in NY who are concerned how people will LOOK at them and what people will SAY to them.

A small adjustment: the approximate number of Muslims in the world today is one billion, including women and children. It's still a huge number.

I love Ann Coulter, but it's not realistic to think you can go in and convert all these folks to Christianity at the point of a gun.

A more likely technique is divide and conquer. The better-educated Muslims may want to consider themselves too enlightened to resort to violence. The minority Shiite Muslims don't get on very well with the Sunni Muslims. Muslims in Indonesia are said to practice a somewhat different religion from their brothers in the Mideast.

Apart from fighting a war on several fronts against the violent Muslims, we need to mount a huge propaganda effort to convince the others that the true version of Islam is peaceful, and doesn't go around murdering innocent people. I don't know if that's true or not (given that Mohammed himself wielded a sword). But for every Muslim cleric who proclaims the Jihad, we have to get some other cleric to preach the opposite way. Otherwise, we're all in big trouble, fighting against nearly a third of the inhabitants of earth.

Even if we win, it would be no fun wiping out hundreds of millions of people to do it.

>As for terrorists among us, political correctness will allow them to destroy us.

I posted a thread yesterday that links to a great article discussing how the CIA was _surprised_ when the "Islamic Revolution" won in Iran. The CIA planners who plot the politics of the world had considered religion a dead issue (domestically, and overseas). US policy in the Middle East was centered on Israel and Lebanon, but the Islamic Revolution changed everything. p>

The article (linked to here: The Coming War in the Middle East -- I posted the prologue, but the link on the thread takes you to the 51 page article) explains how the Islamic Revolution got out of control, and how the Oil Elites are attempting to "co-opt" the revolution itself by changing the US policy toward Israel. It's great stuff. Very detailed, very political, and seemingly right on the money... Mark W.

Amen brother. This cannot be said enough. We are in the spot where we are because of people like Chris Matthews and Peter Jennings and on and on.

I saw Matthews talking about profiling about a week ago, in a discussion with Forrest Sawyer. I thought Sawyer was going to faint. He was looking like, "Shouldn't we pull the plug on this and switch back to something else." Like someone was using foul language or hateful words.

I couldn't believe Matthews either. What a hypocrite. And Sawyer rightfully questioned him to the effect of, "Well Chris, how can we do this profiling you suggest against only one group, Arabs, and yet it won't apply to blacks, for example, when police are looking for a rapist or a murderer"

And Matthews had some twisted logic on why profiling could apply to TERRORISM and not to RAPE or MURDER!!! The inconsistency and hypocrisy was hilarious. Typical knee-jerk liberalism. And I emphasize the JERK.

It's still possible that a smashing, quick, complete and overwhelming military victory will spare us the necessity of becoming a police state.
That kind of victory would likely so discredit Islamic fundamentalism and validate the modern world that its adherants would no longer be welcome in their own communities.

Do not fear. If America has the good sense to do as you suggest -- and I hope to God we do -- such traitors can be arrested and hanged for aiding and abetting the enemy; i.e., for treason. An all out war against the enemy without will enable us to rid ourselves of the enemy within, for once and for all.

Indeed, friend. And we learned more and more all the time about how McCarthy was right. When they rummaged around the files of the KGB and USSR during recent years they uncovered more and more proof. For example, in the Whitaker Chambers and Alger Hiss matter.

You're right---I should have given attribution since I heard that said by some mid-east expert during one of the hundreds of hours of tv I have logged during the recent days.

Since the quote is unattributed, consider it my opinion, which is why this is in the FR "opinion" category.

I, too, think that a decisive military strike against the locations of the terrorists encompassing most of the nations surrounding those locations is the minimum required. Only that will give even the minimum assurance we need that we can stop terrorism.

Massive military strikes (like, say, carpet bombing) would hopefully whack out many or most of the terrorists. MORE importantly, the terrorists and their friends and families and government would be UNABLE to be in the terrorist business for the rest of their lifetimes, because they would be too busy trying to build shelters and obtain food.

That neutralizes the offshore threats. THEN, we have to contend with the cells among us...

For the cause of Freedom, I dont care if America has to kill Millions or even Billions of people. There are no limits towards the cause of Freedom, pal.

Bump.

This is how it has always been: the choice between preserving our nation or allowing our nation to be destroyed. That leftist crowd from Hollywood who represent the millions of Gore voters, and these demonstrators on campuses, don't believe freedom is worth killing for. So therefore, they would rather spare the terrorists, and they don't admit the LOGICAL result of sparing the terrorists: the terrorists then destroy us.

It is just like it was for years with Sadaam. The left's philosophy about him and all bad guys is, "If we're nice to him, then he'll be nice to us too"

We have the Clintons and their leghunching friends in the Alphabet Media plus other 'we feel your pain' airheads to thank for bringing this society down to their level.

This country will carry the stench of these people for as long as it takes to cleanse ourselves by going through many hard to accept corrective measures which will be painful to endure but will produce liberty and freedom from this evil influence that we willingly allowed to continue for too long.

It's comforting to have a parent who lived through WWII right now, isn't it? Something my mother told me makes me feel a little better. She was at U. of Mich. after Pearl Harbor and there were students protesting our involvement in WWII even then...at U. of M. and at campuses across the country. Off campus, though, even those who remembered the horrors of WWI and kept us out of the war before Pearl Harbor rallied.

Hollywood is not a unifying force. They threw a big wet blanket on President Bush's efforts to steel the country for the coming years and support our necessary military efforts, IMHO. Only bright spot, Osama despises them and was probably more outraged than we were at Hollywood's international display of "morality." (^:

Apparently you are blind and deaf as well as a fearfull little shrew. The purpose of the program was to raise funds for the families of those who died in the attacks. It was also to pay tribute to the heroism shown by many of those who died and those who continued to work to save those in the rubble. The purpose was not to convince Americans that we need to kill terrorists and overthrow countries friedly to them. Virtually all agree that is necessary.

Were there a few who couldnt put aside their leftist tendencies, such as whoever it was (cant remember) who sang Lennon's "Imagine" or the stupid comments by De Niro, sure. But that was a small part of the show.

Prejudice against Arabs who live in America, whatever someone THINKS about this subject and diversity, etc.---this is NOTHING compared to the WAR we face. And these leftist idiots among us---like those who appeared last night, with only a couple of exceptions I can think of (Clint talked tough; Petty was the ONLY one who sang an appropriate song)---are too DOGMATIC to admit that we won't have to WORRY about diversity and hate if we are destroyed by Islam.

You say diversity, I say constitutional law. You miss the whole point but that usually happens with people who "think" emotionally. We are a country of laws and citizens have rights to equal protection under our laws.

Will we have to be more stringent about who we let in this country? Yes. I can even see revoking all visas for the duration and only those screened and approved at the highest levels of our govenment would be allowed to enter. I would also restrict movement of UN personnel and ambassadorial staffs and if they strayed beyond those borders they would be expelled from the country. Unfortunately, I think we will need to do much more suveillance on Arab Americans than in the past. For some it will be like the FBI surveillance of the mafia.

That said, I dont think we should view Arab Americans as the enemy. Most are more patriotic than the sons and daughters of WASP families now attending our most prestigious colleges. Sure they are concerned about potential bombing of certain Muslim countries. If you came from Yoguslavia, you probably would have been concerned about American bombing there, worrying about extended family, etc, but that doesnt mean that you would do anything to hurt the United States.

If Arab Americans turn on the rest of us and become the terrorists you fear, it will not be because the clerics called them to a jihad, it will be fearfull little idiots in this country declare war on them because they dont have enough confidence in our abilty to prevail.

It occurs to me that in an all out war -- a declared war -- traitors are handled by military tribunals, not civilian authorities (adios habeas corpus and other civil rights niceties--the country comes first) . . . Read: lots of executions for offering succor and support to the enemy. Just what America needs, IMHO.

What do you suggest that we do with Arab people living here. Should we round them up and deport them all? Send the aliens back to whatever country they came from and the citizens back to whatever country their ancestors came from or whatever country will take them? Is that what it will take for you to feel safe?

Yes-- removal of all followers of the islamic religion would be preferable. This will not be done so we should stop all immigration of muslims, deport all who are not American citizens and keep watch on American arabs.

You are one sick puppy. That kind of sounds like we had to destroy the village to save it. There is no need to kill millions. To speak of doing so proves one thing only, that you are either fearfull little "man" or you have an insatiable blood lust which means you are on the same level as the terrorists.

Muhammed appears to have been the Charles Manson of the 7th century. A most dfficult question is how to control the "family" in the 21st century.

http://free.freespeech.org/rationalthinking/

A thorough study of Quran and Hadiths reveal an Islam that is not being presented honestly by the Muslim propagandists and is not known to the majority of Muslims. Islam as it is taught in Quran (Koran) and lived by Muhammad, as is reported in the Hadith (Biography and sayings of the Prophet) is a religion of intolerance, inequality, violence, discrimination, superstition, fanaticism, and blind faith. Islam advocates killing the non-Muslims, abuses the human rights of the minorities and women. Islam expanded by Jihad (holy war) and forced its way by killing the non-believers and the dissidents. Apostasy in Islam is the biggest crime, punishable by death. Muhammad was a fundamentalist himself therefore fundamentalism cannot be separated from true Islam. Islam, which means submission, demands from its followers to submit their wills and thoughts to Muhammad and his Allah, a deity that despises reason, democracy, freedom of thought and freedom of expression. I reject Islam a) because of Muhammad’s lack of moral and ethical fortitude and b) because of the absurdities in Quran.

Muhammad lived a less than holy life. His lust for sex, his affairs with his maids and slave girls, his pedophilic relationship with Aisha a 9-year-old child, his killing sprees, his massacre and the genocide of the Jews, his slave making and trading, his assassination of his opponents, his raids and lootings of the merchant caravans, his burning of the palm plantations, his destroying the water wells, his cursing and invoking evil on his enemies and his revenge on his captured prisoners of war disqualify him as a decent human being let alone the messenger of God b) An unbiased study of Quran shows that far from being a “miracle” that book is a hoax. Once Quran is scrutinized with rational thinking, almost every sentence proves to be false. Quran is replete with scientific heresies, historic blunders, mathematical mistakes, logical absurdities and grammatical errors. Could possibly the author of this Universe be as ignorant as it appears to be in Quran?

Quran tells Muslims to kill the disbelievers wherever they find them (Q. 2:191), to murder them and treat them harshly (Q. 9:123), slay them (Q. 9: 5), fight with them, (Q. 8: 65 ) even if they are Christians and Jews, humiliate them and impose on them a penalty tax (Q. 9: 29). Quran takes away the freedom of belief from all humanity and tell clearly that no other religion except Islam is accepted (Q. 3: 85). It relegates those who disbelieve in Quran to hell (Q. 5: 11), calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (Q. 9: 28). It orders its followers to fight the unbelievers until no other religion except Islam is left (Q. 2: 193). It says that the non-believers will go to hell and will drink boiling water (Q. 14: 17). It asks the Muslims to slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace and that “they shall have a great punishment in world hereafter” (Q.5: 34). “As for the disbelievers”, it says that “for them garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowls and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods” (Q. 22: 9). Quran prohibits a Muslim to befriend a non-believer even if that non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim (Q. 9: 23), (Q. 3: 28). Quran asks the Muslims to “strive against the unbelievers with great endeavor (Q. 25: 52), be stern with them because they belong to hell (Q. 66: 9). The holy Prophet demanded his follower to “strike off the heads of the disbelievers”; then after making a “wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives” (Q. 47: 4). As for women the book of Allah says that they are inferior to men and their husbands have the right to scourge them if they are found disobedient (Q. 4:34). It teaches that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their husbands (Q. 66:10). It maintains that men have an advantage over the women (Q. 2:228). It not only denies the women's equal right to their inheritance (Q. 4:11-12), it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their witness is not admissible in the court (Q. 2:282). This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness. Muhammad allowed the Muslims to marry up to four views and gave them license to sleep with their slave maids and as many “captive” women as they may have (Q. 4:3). He himself did just that. This is why anytime a Muslim army subdues another nation, they call them kafir and allow themselves to rape their women. Pakistani soldiers raped up to 250,000 Bangali women in 1971 after they massacred 3,000,000 unarmed civilians when their religious leader decreed that Bangladeshis are unislamic. This is why the prison guards in Islamic regime of Iran rape the women and then kill them after calling them apostates and the enemies of Allah.

This site scrutinizes Islam with Rational Thinking. It rejects time-honored beliefs that cannot stand the probing of reason. It asks questions and encourages independent thinking. It promotes unity of humankind, equality between men and women, abolition of prejudices and freedom from dogmatism and blind faith. In a world that has become so technologically advanced that even the poorest nations that cannot feed themselves boast having sophisticated nuclear and biological weapons, small misunderstandings can cause catastrophic results. Religion has always been the biggest source of misunderstanding. For religion, people are ready to die, kill and destroy everything else. Only a religious person would believe that he would go to paradise if he kills other human beings. Only a religious person has no regards for the lives he destroys because their faith is not right. In the past century Islamic fundamentalism has been on the rise, and with that terrorisms, revolutions, and upheavals ensued. Millions of lives were lost and still counting. Let us pause for a moment and take a second look at Islam. We may just have made a mistake.

The reason I think Islam is harmful and must go is not due to the fact that Quran says Earth is flat or the stars are missiles that Allah fires at the jinns who climb the heaven to eavesdrop the conversation of the exalted assembly. These tales could even amuse us. Islam must go because it teaches hate, it orders killing the non-Muslims, it denigrates women and it violates the human rights. Islam must go not because it is false but because it is destructive, because it is a danger; a threat to peace and security of humankind. With the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in Islamic countries, Islam has become a serious and a real threat to the survival of our species.

I am sure that Bush knows that it ISN'T a case of "we've got to root out a very small number of terrorists," etc. Are you saying the President of the United States is lying? You know, you can't pick and choose among his statements. Either you support him or you don't. If he says he will rid the world of evil, that's what he means. When he says the above, that's what he means.

Sorry I missed it... :) I was actually in the air flying until midnight last night. I must say the airlines have really stepped up the plate here. They went out of their way to make everyone feel secure about flying.

The employees were actually very nice and every flight I was on this week landed ahead of schedule!

Were you equally concerned with constitutional law when Clinton with the help of the media, the hollywood elites, the left lawyers and of course the honorable members of the congress and senate who had to tow the party line, defecated all over the constitution and the rule of law? It seems the only time the constitution is respected is when the politically correct agenda is observed, other than those situations its extremely conformable as proven by the Clinton administration. I don't know if your conservative or liberal, I don't care. Fact is I agree with much of your statement, you outlined some intelligent steps toward security with which I agree, steps which should be viewed as common sense, unfortunately due to politically correct nonsense common sense is no longer prevelant among many of our leaders. I'm completely tired of peoples of different nationalities being labeled as an aspect of America instead of being labeled plain and simply Americans. Political correctness must be addressed, not only should it be hunted down and killed, it must be hunted down and emphatically dragged into the light for all to see, and slaughtered there in the light. I don't have all the answers, but I know what does'nt work, the policies of the previous decades leaders share a direct link to the turmoil of today.

"Apparently you are blind and deaf as well as a fearfull little shrew"

Where the heck did that come from? NOTHING in this thread was anything but civil before this childish insult that you prefaced your comment with. Note that I, like many, proceed to the next post after reading such an immature, pathetic, and uncreative attempt at an ad hominem attack. Of course, if you have nothing to say, you have nothing TO use except ad hominem attacks.

Note that you also have violated the guidelines of FR, which you obviously don't care about.

What do you suggest that we do with Arab people living here. Should we round them up and deport them all?

I wrote that we need to "look at them." YOU are the one who injected "round them up and deport them" into the mix, which may "win" an argument in your mind, but which derails the discussion.

As to rounding up and deporting, however, I will say, yes, we deport all on VISAS. THEN they can reapply and we can sort it all out. That is a fair and not unprecedented.

Yes-- removal of all followers of the islamic religion would be preferable. This will not be done so we should stop all immigration of muslims, deport all who are not American citizens and keep watch on American arabs.

That's the logical thing to do for self-preservation, and it's what previous generations would have done---and it is the judgement and actions of previous generations who got us where we are. We won't be so kind to OUR descendants, it seems.

People, however, even some on this board, are so brainwashed with political correctness that the put it before the survival of the Republic. Amazing, isn't it?

Dave S.

Your name-calling on this thread is getting really juvenile. Grow up. You've been here long enough to know better.

Let's see -- being nice to people is more important than dealing with people who arouse our suspicions as terrorists. What IS this, a nation of kindergarten teachers? from

Well, said, Ron. I am crossposting it here because it applies.

So, you're saying that 2 + 2 = 4. But these days, that's a thoughtcrime.

No its terrorists who are following a specific plan of action guided by an extreme ideology.
