Our Most Dangerous Enemy

In the Final Analysis
Who are Our Most Dangerous Enemies?

The United Arab Emirates ?

  2. My answer to that question is "none of them".
    Rather, our most dangerous enemy is the PC left, because no matter who or what our enemies are, it's those who prevent us from fighting effectively.

  3. Great point KG. Thank you. This idea stemmed from reading reports every week about some new threat and constantly having to reevaluate who our most dangerous enemies really were. One week it would seem to obviously be Hamas, the next week Iran, then the following week the case could be made that our most serious threat came from the Saudi funding of Islamist madrasses all over the world.
    Finally it occurred to me that our real enemy was indeed the one thing that all of these countries had in common -- Islam.
    But, of course, you are right. So long as our liberal leftist appeasers refuse to even acknowledge these threats, it doesn't really matter where they are coming from.

  5. Once again, for those who wish to comment here but do not wish to read the fairly simple rules established, you leave me no alternative but to happily pull the plug.

    There must be some sites out there in left field where your anti- Americanisms would be welcome. But -- surprise, surprise --Radarsite isn't one of them.

  6. Again, if Islam is our enemy, then why do you insist we go on with our stupid war in Iraq? Democracy will not come to Iraq. We should just install a dictator or partition the country and leave. Instead of thousands of Americans dying because of the naive notion that those people can support or handle democracy.

  7. johnson -- "Again..."? have we been conversing before? I don't seem to recall it. I have seen your comments elsewhere and I'm just wondering -- do you EVER leave a positive comment, anywhere? If so, I have yet to see one.

    As far as "naive notions" are concerned, the only naive notions I'm aware of on this thread are your notions about our "stupid war in Iraq". If you had bothered to read some of the other articles on this site, you would soon realize why we must succeed in Iraq, and what failure there means to our enemies.

    But some people are going to continue to support their borrowed opinions regardless of any facts to the contrary. Some people are truly uninterested in learning, but only interested in spewing forth their pre-packaged liberal talking points.

    As usual, I disagree with everything you have to say, but because you have not indulged in any personal attacks or used any obscenities, I will not delete you.
    Besides, it's important for others to see how inane some arguments against American foreign policy can actually be. Here's a good example:
    "We should just install a dictator or partition the country and leave." Brilliant, Johnson. Absolutely brilliant.

    And if I had said that about "those people" you would have been one of the first to rush over here and call me a racist.

    I know this news is really tough to take, johnson, but things are actually going quite well in Iraq these days according to the very latest ABC polls.

    I realize that this information doesn't help your cause and I'm really sorry about that. But then, your cause, it seems to me, is just to spread more negativity. So, I really don't care all that much about your cause.

  8. For all those who still cling desperately to the discredtited theory that Iraq is a failure here's a good article to read on the subject from Amy Proctor:

  9. Our biggest enemy is not Islam any more than it is Christianity. It is apostates who use Islam as a cover for their evil agenda. I wouldn't say David Koresh was a good respresentative of Christianity nor that bin Laden represents Islam. He uses it.

    You cannot intrepret the Koran as a non-Muslim correctly. The Old Testament has plenty of passages in which God commands the killing of women and children in battle, wiping out entire cities regardless of who is in them. Jewish law also commanded the stoning deaths of rebellious children, adulterers and so on. Sound familar? There's a bigger picture here and unless you're willing to condemn Judaism and Christianity you shouldn't condemn Islam. Terrorists make the biggest headlines but they are in the minority of the religion. This is just a mathematical fact.

    I would also point out that Protestants and Catholics used terrorism for decades killing thousands of innocent people. I wouldn't call them Christians, either. It's more of an ethnic identity than a religious one. You're prescribing the same misconception to Muslims.

    Pres. Bush made this great statement in his speech yesterday on the anniversary of the invasion:

    In Iraq, we are witnessing the first large-scale Arab uprising against Osama bin Laden, his grim ideology, and his murderous network. And the significance of this development cannot be overstated.

    Muslims are overwhelmingly rejecting terrorism and violence. Christianity has apostates, too, but they don't resort to spectacular bombings and beheadings.. they twist the commandments and moral absolutes of the Gospel and lead people down a wide road to eternal destruction.

    Jesus said not to fear him who can kill the body, but fear him who can kill the soul. Christian apostates (like the gay Episcopal Bishop) are therefore far more dangerous.

    GEN Petraeus asked my husband to go to Baghdad last month and advise MNF-I on engaging religious leaders in Iraq. THIS IS HOW THE WAR WILL BE WON. You hear Petraeus saying, "You can't kill your way out of an insurgency", and understanding the faith and its complex intricacies is part of this. Petraeus' staff yesterday asked my husband to draft the manual on dealing with religious leaders in Iraq because they are so influencial.

    From all these experiences, I understand that condemning Islam is counterproductive. There are plenty of faithful Muslilms and we know some of them. The idea is not to kill Muslims but separate the good from the bad, or as Petraeus calls them, the reconcilables from the irreconcilables.

    It is completely possible to live in peace with Muslims but we have to be bigger than using a broad brush to paint their religion with our misperceptions.

  10. Dear Amy --
    As much as I admire you for all you do for our troops and for America, I see that we still have a fundamental disagreement about Islam, and I guess that that just isn't going to change.

    In my view, you and your husband are mistaken; it is a red herring to compare the tenets of Islam to the Old Testament, or to Christianity a thousand years ago. Christianity, as you well know, is based on the New Testament, which is practically devoid of violence. Islam is a religion born of violence, which continues to promote violence. If some Muslims do not promote violence then they are simply not following the teachings of the Prophet.

    As you know, I have studied the Qur'an and various other Islamist literature for quite a while now, and the more I study the more convinced I am that my views are correct -- and they are not just my views; they are shared, as you know, by many others, more knowledgeable than myself.

    Let me point out once again -- of the 434 pages in my Qur'an, 288 contain some form of violence or threat of violence, invariably aimed at the infidel or the apostate. Those numbers are inarguable. The Qur'an is a warriors guide to world conquest and an excuse for murder and rapine. It was created by a warrior to justify his wars of conquest. It is about as far from a religion of peace as you can get. Once again, to bring up David Koresh or the KKK or the Eleventh Century Crusades is disingenuous. We are talking about here and now. And here and now we -- the western world -- are confronted by an existential evil more dangerous than any previous enemies we have ever been threatened by. The world that you believe in is much nicer that the world I see around us but, to me, you are describing a world that you wish was there, not the one we are faced with.

    In my opinion, your -- or your husband's -- experience with Muslims in Iraq does not translate to what you call the bigger picture. If we continue to ignore this threat to our western civilization coming from these exponentially increasing recalcitrant Muslim immigrants, who despise the welcoming societies they are infiltrating, and the worldwide Islamist movement that is behind it, we will be overwhelmed and destroyed.

    To me, talking about Good Muslims is as delusional and futile as talking about Good Nazis during WWII. Not only is it futile, but it is dangerous.

    At one time I could have agreed with your assessment of Islam, but no more. Actions speak louder than words. And their actions are horrific. Can't you see what i am talking about? Have you read what is happening? Throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Britain, wherever the Muslim immigrants have taken control of an area the crime rate has soared. I have all the statistics necessary to back up this statement. Their goal -- which in some countries is actually succeeding -- is to undermine the democratic process of their host country, introduce sharia law, and eventually overwhelm and dominate that culture. And it is good-hearted but terribly mistaken people who hold the same views as you do who are aiding and abetting this process. Good-hearted tolerance will not stop them, in fact, it will only hinder our ability to fight back against this menace.

    I am afraid that I am in total agreement with Brigitte Gabriel of ACT, and that she is in total disagreement with your evaluation of the threat of Islam, or the inherent evil in that "religion of Peace".

    Sorry.

  11. Only one man was qualified to interpret the Qur'an. His interpretation included: "I am commanded to fight the people"; "I am ordered to fight with men". He bragged about being made victorious by casting terror into the hearts of his enemies. He practiced genocide. He raped captive women.

    Islam is not a religion, nor is it peaceful. Islam has not been hijacked, perverted nor distorted. Islam is what Moe designed it to be: a Goddamn war machine.

    It ain't beneficial, it has no redeeming social value, and it is a real, proximate and perpetual threat which will neither terminate nor diminish until somebody wises up and wipes it off the face of the earth.

    There is no moderate Islam. There are no moderate Muslims.

    There is only God damn war, genocide and terror. One need only read Surahs 2,8,9,33,47,48& 61 to confirm the fatal fact. Sahih Bukhari Books 52, 53 & 59 put the capstone on the monument. Reliance of the Traveler applies the gold leaf finish.

    I will curse & condemn Islam today, tomorrow and with my last breath.

    No politician who does not curse and condemn Islam will get my vote for Congress, the Senate or the Presidency.

    Roger is right; Amy is delusional. Bush is a Goddamn liar of the worst order, totally unworthy of respect as a human being. Tony Blair is his equal. Brown is no better.
    McCain, who admires Islam, is right down there with them in the septic tank. Obama is worse than the rest.

    Isamic law states:"The Caliph makes war upon Jews and Christians". That is from Reliance of the Traveler, Book O, Chapter 9 , Paragraph 8.

    The only thing lacking is how frequently. Al-Ghazali & Al-Shafi'i ruled: at least once each year.
