"Christian" militias can be radical, be radicalized, and be extremist, but Muslims cannot. This coming from the White House, of course. Our national security documents will no longer refer to "Islamic radicalism," but some Americans fit the description nicely for this oppressive regime.
Blaring from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security:
Radicalization and Recruitment
That shift away from terrorism has been building for a year, since Obama went to Cairo and promised a "new beginning" in the relationship between the U.S. and the Muslim world. The White House believes the previous administration based that relationship entirely on fighting terrorism and winning the war of ideas.The philosophy behind erasing "islamic radicals" from our consciousness comes from the thought that "the overwhelming majority" of people in Islamic countries are not going to become terrorists, but it completely ignores the fact that their Holy book, presumably read by every Muslim, does advocate for killing everyone that is not Muslim and I have not seen or heard of one single Muslim...not one, that objects to the directive of Allah to kill...kill...kill. The fact that they may never try to do so, is inordinately lame.
This from Jihad Watch via Memorandum:
This is not only a problem in the United States. It is a problem all over the Western world. How are the people of Western Europe to understand their own reality if they cannot speak truthfully, and openly, about the ideology of Islam? If they have noticed -- and they have at long last noticed -- that Muslim immigrants are particularly aggressive, demanding, hostile, and un-integrable, save always for a small, discrete minority of people who arrive as Muslims but become integrable only to the precise extent that they cease to take Islam to heart, or even, in the best cases, as a result of the mental freedom and physical security that the West offers them, become estranged permanently from Islam (for who knows better what Islam is all about, than Wafa Sultan, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and Magdi Allam, and all the other outstanding and brilliant apostates who offer us their articulate testimonies?), should the peoples of Western Europe not allow themselves to employ the only vocabulary that allows them to discuss this matter?This administration will continue to be completely ignorant of the truth and it will not service us well. Having said that, I am pleased that Obama, et.al, continues to be outrageous. We are madder than hell, and we are not getting over it so...bring it on.
