While we are constantly being schooled in how insensitive we are to Muslims, and how we should be bowing to the idea of a Ground Zero mega mosque, or are being admonished for not embracing the sharia, the state of wartime siege continues unabated. The Muslim world is under no such mandate to reach out or reciprocate. They only have to demand and the West apologizes.
The war that no one will talk about for fear of reprisals blazes on. And when the brave actually do talk about it, they are relegated to the pile of racist-islamophobic-antimuslim-bigots. This schema defies reason.
The rise and resurrection of Islamic jihad, and its ensuing war on the west rages on, thanks to the largest transfer of wealth in history from Western societies to petrol-rich Muslim nations and an incomprehensible, suicidal surrender of our once exalted value system. Instead, the West chooses to respect barbarism and eschew the decent and the good.
We live in a constant state of low-grade war. And with each new Muslim attack, we lose a right. We lose a freedom. We have to adhere to some new restriction or loss of privacy. You cannot enter a building in New York City without being carded (I am not sure what illegal aliens do, perhaps they are given a free pass -- as in all things).
There are daily brutal, bloody attacks by Muslim supremacists across the world, and the major concern is not to discuss or insult Islam. The only accepted dialogue is dawah, Islamic supremacist-dictated terms of dialogue (in mosques, no less).
The silence on last weekend's wholesale slaughter of Christians praying in a Church is indicative of how decayed, empty and morally inverted our leaders and media have become. The slaughter of the churchgoers in Baghdad was a crime against humanity. And there are thousands of stories of Islamic slaughter, but the lambs remain silent. Have we become so inured to Islamic jihad that human life is cheap to us as well? Horrible.
We have relinquished our most basic human right -- free speech. The media self-censors, our political leaders self-censor and obey the sharia rule of not insulting Islam. We are not permitted to identify the enemy; doing so is "hate speech." According to the Department of Defense and media elites, the motive behind the Fort Hood jihad remains a "mystery." And Major Hasan's proposed "insanity" defense is dashed by the "premassacre preperations," his business card, his dawah before jihad, and his powerpoint presentation.
Every aspect of the daily social fabric of our life has changed.
There was a time when air travel was fun, exciting. Instead it has become wretched, like entering into Sing Sing on the first day of a prison sentence. This, too, is part of the war. The time lost, the hassle. And think of the money. Vast wealth is being spent on this inane strategy, "operation fetal position," instead of being spent on vanquishing our enemy (which we could do in a heartbeat, with the will). Think of the ridiculous TSA, another huge bureaucratic agency created at the insistence of the Democrats. Bush did not want to create another bloated government agency. He wanted to keep it in the private sector, but the Dems could not resist another parasitic money-sucking agency replete with all the entitlements of government mooching and looting.
And now our stupidity is being exploited for cash.
