This tippy-toeing of our government around the obvious attacks on our country by Radical Islamic Extremist elements is an absolute disgrace. The fact that our leaders will not or can not verbalize or acknowledge that we are in a war with these terrorists does not give this writer much hope that we will be able to defeat this aggressor. The more we appear too afraid to acknowledge to the world that we are under attack (even if they say it is an attempt on their part to be " politically correct") the weaker we seem to our enemies. Yes, they are our enemies. I am sick and tired of hearing that we should not jump to hasty conclusions. I refuse to believe that their initial consideration is not Islamic Terrorism. If it is not, then we are in more trouble than we think. We are hearing repeatedly from the administration that these incidents are "isolated" or "lone wolf" occurrences. Why would that be the first response? We all know by now that these attacks are more than likely inspired by Islamic Extremists. I would not even care if that was not mentioned if they would at least not insult our intelligence with this distracting and insulting spin. I will make an observation, though, that with the increase of American citizens involved in these heinous acts, we probably will not see many "suicide" bombers. It seems these individuals are not quite as committed to the cause to be willing to die for it. They are just willing to kill for it.
So now we have allowed several Islamic nations into the Human Rights Council at the U.N. What are we to expect from this? Acquiescence to their Sharia laws and horrendous treatment of women without question? When will this stop? When will we wake up? We must act to reign in the power of the Muslim nation in this country and the world. Pediatricians here are actually considering performing cliteridectomies on young girls here instead of sending them to Islamic countries who perform this genital mutilation under barbaric conditions. Where is the outrage of the women's rights groups? Where is the outrage of the U.N. Human Rights Council? Where is the outrage of fathers and mothers who see this happening and remain silent?
We must draw a line in the sand immediately. We need to extract ourselves from the United Nations alliance and insist that they leave our country. We must not allow them to build a mosque near Ground Zero, which they are planning to open on 9/11/11. This is an insult and an outrage!
Mark Steyn is right on in his column Nicking Our Public Discourse - Mark Steyn - National Review Online. We need to pay attention to the insidious and now more and more aggressive insertion of this radical culture into our society. We are showing weakness in the name of diversity and acceptance. But they do not plan to blend into our society, they plan to impose their sick and twisted beliefs on all of us. They consider us infidels and want us all in servitude of Islam, or DEAD! I want my President to acknowledge that he understands that, and that he will defend us and preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States of America! Can we at least expect that from our leader? I don't know about you, but I am taking these attacks personally. When will our President?
