CBS News runs the headline: “Faisal Shahzad’s Motive Shrouded in Mystery”.
Faisal Shahzad’s motive isn’t shrouded in mystery, he’s an Islamic jihadist, willing to use terror to try and force Islam an all of the world. His attempt at mass murder failed, but that doesn’t make him less evil, or his reasoning less clear. He is an inept, but evil mass murder, whose motivation is based on Islamic beliefs.
NY Mayor Bloomberg said: “If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”
Mass attacks on NY City; including subway attacks, past unsuccessful and successful attempts on the World Trade Center, etc., were the actions of militant Islam. Why is Bloomberg in denial, and how could he not think that a terrorist attack on NY is based on the actions of Islamists?
Liberal frustration with the facts, and trying to blame the USA for terrorist’s acts against the USA is like blaming a rape victim for her own rape. Liberals are relativistic and cannot recognize that there is such a thing as evil. Terrorist acts are evil; the people who commit them are evil; people who promote terrorist acts are evil. This isn’t a difference in opinion that can be discussed and a compromise worked out. Islamists believe that the rest of the world has three choices; convert to Islam, becomes slaves to Islamic people, or die. They are willing to die, to achieve their goals, they are not willing to compromise. This is a war on western civilization.
Why do liberals want to accept a group of people who believe that when women are raped they should be stoned, who use terrorism to advance their goals, who will tolerate no other belief except their own, who riot over cartoons they don’t like, and whose stated goal is to overthrow western civilization and institute Islamic Law? Not all belief systems are equal, some are better than others. Western Civilization, specifically US ideas of liberty and freedom for all, equal rights for all, limited government, and equal protection under the law, are a better belief system than any of the big government central control belief systems like; Socialism, Fascism, Feudalism, and even Islamism. All of the big government central control belief systems (secular or religious) when enacted have historically proven to lead to misery and often to their implementation has lead to mass murder.
MSNBC newsreader Contessa Brewer said: “I get frustrated… There was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country. … There are a lot of people who want to use terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.”
If you think Ms. Brewer is frustrated, how do you think the jihadists feel? They tell us exactly what their goals are. They tell us exactly why they are terrorizing Western Civilization. Not even moderate Muslims condemn terrorist actions. And we still don’t take them seriously. They say they want to destroy western values and institute Islamic Law throughout the world. They say it’s acceptable to use lies, deceit, and terrorism to reach that goal. When they do what they say, the left tries to blame anything, except what the jihadists say are the reasons for terrorism. Why is the left, and the press “frustrated” when the truth hits them in the face?
There is a worldwide, religious, Islamic war on Western Civilization. How do I know this and how can I say that with such conviction? Easy, the people waging the war against western civilization say so. They are not lying. Their goal is clear and clearly stated; to overthrow western civilization and install worldwide Islamic law. What I don’t understand is how and why liberals, especially the liberal press, keep apologizing for them, and continue to blame the victim for the evil deeds of the Islamist.
