MILITANT Islam keeps on killing, but politicians and journalists still avert their eyes.
There have also been many more non-lethal assaults on churches and church services, the most recent this past Sunday.
There is no doubt about the motives of the perpetrators: Militant Islamic groups brazenly speak their minds, declaring their goal is "to kill Christians" and afterwards bragging of having "killed the nonbelievers."

It is not a war on terrorism, nor a war on Islam. It is a war on a terroristic version of Islam.
Separating the terroristic version from the rest could prove difficult though...
People need to understand that there is no such thing as a "TERRORISTIC VERSION OF ISLAM"
If you have not done it yet then you need to read the Quran and then you will understand. ISLAM is Arabic does not mean "peace", it means "submission" (submission to the will of Allah). The Quran is believed by all Muslims to the be the actual word of Allah (God) and therefore you will find that the dangerous Muslims are the religious ones. You will also find that the majority of "moderate" Muslims (to be read as "non-practicing") actually admire and respect their militant "brothers" for being more religious than they are.
What you have is basically practicing Muslims and those who don't practice their religion and that is the major difference really.
Why is it that the Hindus are the only ones with the cojones to fight back?
This was taken in NYC on Sunday, at a street book fair near Rockefeller Center:
We let them disseminate their propaganda here, in the city where 9/11 killed nearly 3000 of our countrymen, though Christians doing this would be attacked, jailed, beaten, and/or killed in any Islamic city you care to name.
(Yes, that's me, with a really annoyed look on my face. No one answered my rhetorical question, "Where's the Christian bookstore in downtown Mecca?")
It's right on St. Matthew Square, down the block from the yeshiva and right next door to the Buddhist temple.
St. Matthew Square has been renamed to Mohammed's Camel Alley, the yeshiva has been turned into a madrassa, and the Buddhist temple is a McDonald's.
It'll be a snowy day in
HELL MECCA (well same thing actually) before there is a Christian bookstore there!
That is to say a good Moslem who practices his religion, and follows its hate instruction is actually, by definition, a terrorist and a bad Moslem. Only Moslem people who do not practice their religion, go to mosques, or follow its venomous teaching is an acceptable human being!
Worth a bump.
It disturbs me deeply that many so called Muslim experts themselves are governed by what is politically correct instead of the truth.
Dear Mr. Pipes:
Im writing to you over serious concerns that I have where I believe that you might have inadvertantly mislead people to believe that what you describe as "militant Islam" is in fact some rare, violent strain of Islam when in fact this is not true.
You have stated:
"...The enemy is militant Islam, and the policy goal should be to weaken militant Islam and strengthen moderate Islam...[sic]"
This is not true and the truth concerning Islam needs to be told and not sacrificed on the altar of political correctness, and that is that the enemy itself is in fact Islam. There is in reality no difference between what you describe as "moderate" and "militant" Islam.
What you describe as "militant" and "moderate" versions of Islam is in fact misleading. These "militant Muslims" as you describe them are in the real and true Muslims. You are mistaken if you believe that there exists a peaceful, tolerant or moderate version of Islam. No such thing exists in Islam. Of course there are people who call themselves Muslims who are peaceful, tolerant and moderate, but this has absolutely nothing to do with Islam. These people are tolerant and peaceful to the same extent that they are not Muslims and do not live by the teachings of the Quran. To make matters worse, these (non practicing Muslims) will be the first ones to tell you this.
"... what the West is facing in confronting Islam as it truly is, a theocratic form of government which presents a greater threat to democracy and freedom than communism ever did.
I look forward to your reply.
Islam is a peaceful and loving religion....
