Compare Oslo With Islamic Terrorism? — From My Vault
THE FOLLOWING IS MY SYNDICATED COLUMN THAT APPEARED AUGUST 7, 2011. IT IS TITLED “COMPARE OSLO WITH ISLAMIC TERRORISM?” I SUBMIT NOTHING HAS CHANGED SINCE I FIRST PENNED THIS OP-ED.
Yes, it’s true that the first reports of the horrific shootings that took place in Oslo, Norway, led us to believe that Muslim terrorists were responsible. There was talk of a Muslim cleric who had threatened death and mayhem if he were deported. There was also talk of lingering Muslim unrest and anger over a cartoonist’s depiction of the pedophile and murderer they bow before.
So, it was understandable that they and their sympathizers would attempt to use this single instance as proof of their persecution. It is also true that there are other instances of mass shootings that weren’t committed by Muslims. But let’s not confuse those situations as being even remotely the same as the violent, murderous acts of Islamists.
There is a difference between the gang-related shootings that took place this past weekend at a low-rider car show in Seattle and the family-related roller-rink shootings in Texas. Timothy McVeigh was an agnostic – Jared Lee Loughner, responsible for the Arizona shootings that included Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski were/are certifiably crazy.
I do not apologize that, based on the early reports, I believed the Oslo killings to be the work of Islamists. There’s a systemic animalism that is endemic to Islam that traces back to Ishmael. No matter how Islam is portrayed, there is nothing pastoral or peaceful about it, nor is there anything reverential about it. Islam’s practitioners are religious only to the extent that one is religious about terrorism, threats, murder and mayhem.
People may not like what I say, but it’s time we stop dancing around this issue. We must take them as serious threats that warrant thorough watching and investigation.
Muslims are a fanatical threat, and they take pride in that fact. They are proud of the fact that they can gain access to what they want through threat and intimidation.
As I once wrote: “Violence is indeed incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul.” (“Where’s the Muslim apology?” WND, Sept. 26, 2006) How can any person of a reasonable mind not question the validity of a religion that practices ritualistic beheadings and disembowelment in the 21st century?
It’s not fear mongering to argue that we must be concerned with the increasing number of Muslims coming here – especially those being converted in prisons and those coming here illegally. In 2002, two Muslim men, in a beat up old Chevy, held Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia hostage as they randomly murdered people for sport. Nidal Hasan, a Muslim, infiltrated our military – murdering 13 and wounding 32 at the Fort Hood military base. Muslims tried to detonate bombs at Fort Dix. Muslims tried to poison our water, blow up bridges in New York and bomb buildings the night of the millennium. Consider that there are, right now, several Americans who are high-ranking Muslim terrorists. The father of a domestic Muslim terrorist was convicted of trying to cover up his son’s efforts to blow up bridges in New York. Yet we see government and individuals genuflecting and bending over backwards to accommodate those who would do us harm.
In my column “It isn’t fanaticism – it’s evil,” I wrote: “There are about 400 recognized terrorist groups in the world. Over 90 percent of these are Islamist groups. Over 90 percent of current world fighting involves Islamist terror movements. The vast majority of world terrorism is religiously motivated by Islam. This involves terrorist acts in 26 countries worldwide. These people cannot be reasoned with. Their hatred is an anathema to all rational consideration. They have but one goal: to subdue the world under the rule of Islam.” (WND, Aug. 12, 2006)
A British security adviser, quoted in the the Times of London, Aug. 16, 2006, said: “They [Muslims] are ruthless, single-minded and totally committed.” The question becomes, will America take steps to protect our people or will we wait for the “tah-lee-bahn,” as Obama pronounces it, to defile our courts with Shariah law?
We have a problem, and our government thinks molesting children, sexually assaulting women and searching wheelchair-bound 95-year-old cancer patients wearing adult diapers is going to protect us? We hear the outright lies of the administration per border security, yet border agents tell me we are far from safe. One agent, whom I promised anonymity, told me if we knew what was coming across the border, we would take our guns and defend the border ourselves.
The facts are there for all to see. And Muslims are reinforcing them for those who refuse to be forewarned. We don’t need a president who can pronounce Arabic words better than he can speak English (remember “corpse” instead of corps); we need a president who realizes that these people are not our friends and that they are a threat to ourselves and our way of life. Which means we should restrict their ability to immigrate here and we should watch them like Janet Napolitano recommends our “white middle-class” be watched – because, she has determined, they could very likely be terrorists.
