Check out my latest oped over at The American Thinker. Nails it.
Surrendered Nation Pamela Geller, American Thinker
The turkey being served up last Thursday by the ruling elite was the American people. Because she was wearing a panty liner that obscured the screener's view of her genitals, a TSA official subjected a menstruating woman to a fondling "so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assaults."< When did we agree to surrender to Islam? Seriously. Whom did we appoint or elect to negotiate this surrender? Our surrender has been parceled out in loss of freedom, accommodation, and submission to Islamic supremacist demands, and in foreign policy that is supine before Iran and cozying up to the Taliban.
Explain to me how -- after 9/11 and the tens of thousands of Islamic attacks across the world that have been committed in the name of jihad since then, as well as the myriad Muslim insurgencies in numerous countries, the accelerating destruction of Western civilization in Europe, and the hundreds of jihad plots that have been thwarted in the West -- the American people were sacrificed without being consulted.
We cannot address jihad or the teachings that mandate Islamic imperialism and violence for the glory of Allah. Nothing is being done to defeat that which inspires the enemy. Barack Obama has banned words relating to Islam and jihad from the anti-terror lexicon. When in India, he was asked for his opinion, his "take" on jihad, and he surrendered in his response, saying, "Islam is one of the world's great religions."
Every day we are forced to submit to some form of Islamic law, the Sharia, in businesses like Disney, Wal-Mart, Target, Rising Star Industries, and J.B. Swift. Individuals are losing their jobs for insulting Islam -- we see the mosqueing of the workplace, Islamic finance, academic jihad, virulent Islamic anti-Semitism, historical revisionism, and other advances of Islamic supremacism in every aspect of our daily lives.
Meanwhile, those who speak out against all this are marginalized, vilified, and silenced. My website, Atlas Shrugs.com, has just been banned from Veterans Administration computers, along with my colleague Robert Spencer's JihadWatch.org. Both were banned for giving voice to "controversial opinions."
I wonder how veterans feel about that. Fighting jihad is controversial? So what are our soldiers doing in Afghanistan and Iraq? It's a real head-scratcher.
And it all represents a massive societal surrender by the Obama administration and our political elites. And who softens us up for this civilizational suicide? The media.
Who chose the media to negotiate the surrender?
NBC is naming a waiter-turned-thug-turned-impostor developer, Sharif El-Gamal, as "person of the year" because he is behind building a triumphal mosque at Ground Zero, the site of the largest, most heinous attack on U.S. soil in American history.
Then there is this outrage: one of TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" candidates is the radical Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who has said that "the U.S. has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has the blood of innocent non-Muslims on its hands" and that Osama bin Laden was made in the USA. His mosque initiative, remember, is named the Cordoba Movement; Cordoba is a city that in the Islamic world is iconic of Islamic conquest over the West.
Meanwhile, once again we have to look north for leadership with a moral compass. Canada will boycott a planned antisemitic U.N. conference on racism in New York in September 2011, Durban III, because it promises to be nothing more than a "hatefest," directed largely at Israel.
