Taking the Islamic Challenge Seriously

When Muslims commit acts of terror, it is standard operating procedure for some authority or other to assure the populace that “this has nothing to do with Islam.” This is said so frequently as to induce a boy-who-cried-wolf reaction in anyone with an ounce of contrariness. Nowadays, if there’s a fender bender on the next block or a glitch in our computer, we automatically assume that it probably has something to do with Islam. So it’s refreshing to finally hear a world leader (in this case, a former world leader) admit that global Islamic terror actually does have something to do with Islam.

In a keynote address in April at Bloomberg Headquarters in London, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair described radical Islam as the single biggest threat facing the world today.  He went on to criticize Western commentators who “go to extraordinary lengths” to avoid linking terrorism with Islam.  “It is bizarre,” he said, “to ignore the fact that the principal actors in all situations express themselves through the medium of religious identity.”

POLL:  Do you think the New World Order is a conspiracy theory or the truth?

Although Blair suggested that radical Islamic ideology “distorts and warps Islam’s true message,” he nevertheless emphasized that this extremist movement is based in religious belief.  He added that we in the West can gain a better understanding of the Islamist ideology by remembering “the experience of revolutionary communism and fascism.”  His main message?  The “defeating of this ideology” should be at the top of the global agenda.  In short, Blair is calling for ideological warfare against “Islamism” (his term for radical Islam).

During the Second World War and during the Cold War that followed, we didn’t hesitate to engage in ideological warfare first with Nazism, and then with communism.  It was considered perfectly legitimate to go after the ideas which lay at the base of these totalitarian systems as a way of weakening belief in them.  And we didn’t particularly worry about who might take offense.  But what if the ideology that threatens you comes wrapped in the cloak of religion?  Blair calls for the defeat of the “Islamist” ideology, but how can you engage in ideological warfare if criticism of the enemy ideology is off-limits?

So Jordan? What is your next move? What do we do? Post info here? Kick the dog? Beat the wall? What? Until someone takes a stand. And really does something? They will keep winning! As Always, " I live my life. That when my feet hit the floor in the morning. The devil and muslims say, "OH CRAP!!! HE IS AWAKE !!! "

Islam declares that a true follower of the prophet Mohammad can lie and deceive an infidel, pretending he is the friend of the infidel, and when he has gained the advantage over the infidel, he is commanded to kill the infidel and allah will get all warm and fuzzy inside! The first phase of warfare is to feign friendship and pretend to be weak. As you are in the land of your enemy, make your enemy think that you are weak and have no aspirations of warfare and conquest! You never know, if you are an infidel! You can easily wake up one night and find your throat cut! This is legal and approved of by allah (Satan)!

Where is the Politically Correct police in this country when an Imam declares that Islam is going to kill Christians and Jews? Where are the enforcers of Political Correctness when a Muslim Imam declares that the United States is the great Satan?

Oh. now I see....If one speaks out against Islam, they will come to your house and saw your head off with a dull knife! They rule by threats of violence! They well know that true Christianity is a lifestyle of loving ones enemy, showing mercy, not judgement, forgiving those who do harm to you, a lifestyle of peace, emulating our holy Lord Jesus Christ. Comparing Islam with Christianity, One demands and promotes violence, thus I call it the religion of Death. It is a religion founded on the fundamental premise that Allah (their god) requires in cases of rape, a woman must have four male witnesses. There are cases where the woman was beaten with lashes in the public square, even beheaded if she made a charge of rape and she didn't struggle or resist enough. Often time, the woman suffers far more than he attacker, so very few rapes are ever reported! Wives are chattel to the husband under Sharia Law. In other words, the wife is the property of the husband. Women may be beaten, even murdered by the husband and no criminal charges will be issued! The woman has nearly no legal standing under Sharia Law.Women are often times subjected to genitalia mutilation, where their clitoris is mutilated, for she is not permitted to enjoy the sexual relationship. Islam is a religion rooted in illiteracy! It is in fact a doctrine of demons! They have been worshiping their "moon god" Satan for nearly 1500 years! Their "prophet" and I use the term loosely, Mohammad, in truth was a thief, a sexual predator, a pedophile, a murderer, and a servant of his father Satan! Forced marriages of female children can occur at age 9 and often times she is forced to marry a much much older man! If the wife commits adultery, she will be condemned to death! If she is raped and can not produce four male witnesses, there have been documented cases where the wife has been put to death! This is one of the most unjust and moronic laws I have ever heard of! As stupid and illiterate as the followers of Islam are, I am amazed they have survived all these years. Perhaps you can attribute their longevity to the fact that they breed like rabbits or more astutely, locust! Human life is held in very low esteem! The male can have up to 4 wives! The husband can kill any of his children, without reprisals or difficulty if the child brings shame upon his house, this is called an honor killing and it is a very controversial law in the civilized world! The religion of Islam is a very repressive religion!

Islam is NAZISM!

Comment by sr williams on May 16, 2014 at 2:02pm

In the 30's many in Hollywood and the East coast, along the docks thought it was fine what Hitler /Nazis were doing.   In fact good old Joe Kennedy, the Ambassador to England was a big Hitler supporter.  So much so confidential memos could not go thru our Embassy in England.  In Hollywood ,  actors were boycotted if they were not big communist supporters.   The reason later Joe Mc Carthy investigated them.   The Communists/Nazis were big buddies until Hitler invaded Russia.  We have a Hollywood today that blackballs conservatives.   Differing views need not apply.  We have an Obumo ADM.  that cannot utter Muslim terrorist.  They roam this country at will. Our laws are like smoke disappearing in the air.    Our places of "higher" learning are  the homes for those that hate this country.   No one is allowed to offer differing opinions.   Our American values/lifestyle, way of life are being destroyed while these "open minded" people are  championing a religion that stones/beheads/makes women slaves as a religion that no one can criticize.   These same people put no value on anothers labor or accomplishments.   They are the ones to decide who gets what.  Not who earns what.

muslims  get it, there is no such thing as a moderate muslim read the Koran how could you follow this satanic belief system on any level and actually call it a religion it a political ideology basis on fear, death and terrorism.

Comment by Ted Sockwell on May 16, 2014 at 11:36am

Islam is all moderate and radical they let things slide till they think they can get away with acts of terror they will be moderate muslims so there is no muslim that can be trusted

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
