The Enemy is Islam

Terror in the sky's on Christmas Day. Not that some needed a reminder, but another radical Islamist tried to blow up a plane again and on a Christian holy day. It was only his lack of knowledge that prevented this attack from being successful and was not due in any part to the government of this country which was, as usual asleep at the wheel.

Umar Abdulmutallab, a wealthy Muslim determined that Allah wanted him to kill Christians on Christmas Day. Obama finally spoke on the attack after days of silence. And managed to utter that word he hates, "terror" briefly, but at the same time refused to connect the day and Islam with the attack. I suppose to him, the date was merely a coincidence, you and I know better.

Despite overwhelming evidence the president and those around him refuse to link terrorism with Islam and continue to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. The president and those around him are blinded by political correctness and their Utopian belief in multiculturalism. Our state department will NOT link terrorism to Islam despite hundreds of attacks over many years. Our troops stand down on Islamic holidays while a terrorist like Abdulmutallab chooses our holy day to attack. If one of our soldiers in anyway defaces the Koran he is subject to swift military justice. Our leaders insist again and again that the terrorist who attack us don't represent Islam when everyone knows that's a lie.

Our so-called experts on terror agonize over whether this terrorist or that terrorist is a member of al Qaeda. That's not even important because we are dealing with a world wide Muslim movement. We have managed to tie ourselves down in Afghanistan while the enemy remains mobile. While we insist on holding ground in Afghanistan the enemy is advancing in Africa and Yemen. While our leaders point to the slums of the Muslim world as the breeding ground for terrorist they ignore the fact that most jihadis are coming from wealthy and middle class families. And yet, we continue digging wells and building schools in Afghanistan in the foolish hope this will prevent the poor from joining the ranks of the terrorist. Its time to look at the universities and at the jet-set Muslim youth of the world. Our leaders need to quit lying to themselves and to us. The threat is real and the enemy is Islam.
