Like most bloggers, I skim the news everyday looking for content ideas for my daily posts. In the process, one can get pretty frustrated reading the almost daily bleating of the appeasers and apologists trying to explain the whys and wherefores of Islam like jihad does not mean ‘Holy War’, the myth of Muslim support for terror, and how the great majority of Muslims are moderate and do not support the Islamist agenda.

One article explains that the word ‘Jihad’ doesn’t mean Holy War but ‘striving’, while another article claims that Muslims do not support terror (74 percent of respondents in Indonesia agreed that terrorist attacks are “never justified”; in Pakistan, that figure was 86 percent; in Bangladesh, 81 percent – if true that means 26 percent of Muslims in Indonesia, 14 percent in Pakistan, and 19 percent in Bangladesh do support terror. If you take the hundreds of millions of Muslims in those areas, those percentages are pretty damn scary), and another article tries to show how the majority of Muslims are moderate yet is blind to the fact that they receive indirect support form the moderates.

Add the bellyaching of the left useful idiots who constantly try and misdirect the argument away for the ideology and claim ‘if only they weren’t so exploited by the decadent West we would have peace.’

Enough is enough!

First almost any religion including Christianity has had its period of violent proselytizing. Pointing to verses in the Bible as proof that Christianity teaches the love of your fellow man while Christians were slaughtering each other and anyone who disagreed with the ‘Word of God’ during the Middle Ages, was small comfort to those who live through the Thirty Years War and the Inquisition.

The problem is this. Though religions may be made by infallible holy men from heaven, they have to be lived out by average fallible human beings here in earth. Every Western religion teaches peace but their history shows that they will kill those who do not believe as they do to attain it. It’s not WHAT is written by the religion that’s important, but HOW the religion is practiced. So let’s stop talking of how Islam is this or Islam is that and look at how it is being practiced.

Today, the 21st century, Christians and Jews preach peace. The mouthpieces for Muslims preach war. It’s quite simple to see. Almost 95 percent of all conflict in the world today involve Muslims.

Get the picture.

Then we have the apologists who see the conflict not as the ideology of freedom against the ideology of Islamism but between the planet’s rich and poor.

The prime minister of Malasia, Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi, says attributing problems between the west and the Muslim world to a clash of civilizations diverts attention away from the real source of discontent. The key to stabilizing the Muslim world is to improve economic conditions and reduce the high levels of “poverty, illiteracy and unemployment”

If so, then answer me this. Why are the many other poverty stricken countries in the Caribbean, South and Central America, Africa. Etc. etc. not blowing themselves up for their God? Poverty isn’t driving those people to suicide bombings. How come Mr. Prime Minister? Because your argument doesn’t hold water.

So enough already. Its time the apologists and useful idiots cease trotting out the same old horse and get them to address the real problem.

It’s the ideology, stupid! The ideology that drives the Islamo-fascist agenda of Islamism. Find it, confront it and destroy it – wherever and whenever it is found.
