Enough is enough: we are at war with Islam!

* Ben Shapiro wants to do whatever it takes to destroy religion’s ‘dominant strain of evil’

By Benjamin Shapiro/World Net Daily

Enough with the pseudonyms. Western civilization isn’t at war with terrorism any more than it is at war with grenades. Western civilization is at war with militant Islam, which dominates Muslim communities all over the world. Militant Islam isn’t a tiny minority of otherwise goodhearted Muslims. It’s a dominant strain of evil that runs rampant in a population of well over 1 billion.

* Correction Benjamin: Islam is at war with us since its inception. Not the other way around….

Enough with the psychoanalysis. They don’t hate us because of Israel. They don’t hate us because of Kashmir. They don’t hate us because we have troops in Saudi Arabia or because we deposed Saddam Hussein. They don’t hate us because of Britney Spears. They hate us because we are infidels, and because we don’t plan on surrendering or providing them material aid in their war of aggressive expansion.

* Messianic Jewish Leader Says Islam is a Threat to the World

* WaPo Denial Watch: Oh, by the way, the Mumbai attackers were jihadists

* Times editor Salhani gives (useless) advice, calls for ‘restraint’. Perhaps India should read what Salhani says and then do the opposite!

* Dan Kliman, a dedicated pro-Israel activist in San Francisco, and occasional zombietime contributor, was found dead yesterday at the bottom of an elevator shaft:   More from Zombie  and Debbie Schlussel, who knows that people don’t just fall into elevator shafts without help…

Enough with the niceties. We don’t lose our souls when we treat our enemies as enemies. We don’t undermine our principles when we post more police officers in vulnerable areas, or when we send Marines to kill bad guys, or when we torture terrorists for information. And we don’t redeem ourselves when we close Guantanamo Bay or try terrorists in civilian courts or censor anti-Islam comics. When it comes to war, extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice, and moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.

Enough with the words. Talking with Iran without wielding the threat of force, either economic or military, won’t help. Appealing to the United Nations, run by thugs and dictators ranging from Putin to Chavez to Ahmadinejad, is an exercise in pathetic futility. Evil countries don’t suddenly decide to abandon their evil goals – they are forced to do so by pressure and circumstance.

Enough with the faux allies. We don’t gain anything by pretending that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are true allies. They aren’t. At best, they are playing both sides of the table. We ought to be drilling now in order to break OPEC. Building windmills isn’t going to cut it. We should also be backing India to the hilt in its current conflict with Pakistan – unless Pakistan can destroy its terrorist element, India should be given full leeway to do what it needs to do. Russia and China, meanwhile, are facilitating anti-Western terrorism. Treating them as friends in this global war is simply begging for a backstabbing.

Enough with the myths. Not everyone on earth is crying out for freedom. There are plenty of people who are happy in their misery, believing that their suffering is part and parcel of a correct religious system. Those people direct their anger outward, targeting unbelievers. We cannot simply knock off dictators and expect indoctrinated populations to rise to the liberal democratic challenge. The election of Hamas in the Gaza Strip is more a rule than an exception in the Islamic world.

Enough with the lies. Stop telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. If it is, prove it through action. Stop telling us that President-elect Obama will fix our broken relationship with the Muslim world. They hate Obama just as much as they hated President George W. Bush, although they think Obama is more of a patsy than Bush was. Stop telling us that we shouldn’t worry about the Islamic infiltration of our economy. If the Saudis own a large chunk of our banking institutions and control the oil market, they can certainly leverage their influence in dangerous ways.

Enough. After the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the plane downed in Pennsylvania, the endless suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks in Israel, the Bali bombings, the synagogue bombing in Tunisia, the LAX shootings, the Kenyan hotel bombing, the Casablanca attacks, the Turkey synagogue attacks, the Madrid bombings, the London bombings, and the repeated attacks in India culminating in the Mumbai massacres – among literally thousands of others – it’s about time that the West got the point: We’re in a war. Our enemies are determined. They will not quit just because we offer them Big Macs, Christina Aguilera CDs, or even the freedom to vote. They will not quit just because we ensure that they have Qurans in their Guantanamo cells, or because we offer to ban “The Satanic Verses” (as India did). They will only quit when they are dead. It is our job to make them so, and to eliminate every obstacle to their destruction.

So enough. No more empty talk. No more idle promises. No more happy ignorance, half measures, or appeasement-minded platitudes. The time for hard-nosed, uncompromising action hasn’t merely come – it’s been overdue by seven years. The voice of our brothers’ blood cries out from the ground.

  1. That was an interesting piece. Can’t fight an enemy that isn’t defined.

    Native American visionary, Sun Bear, said Islam would be at war with the west. I read that book in 1991. (“Black Dawn, Bright Day” – I think was the title).
    He refers to it as the Snake versus the Eagle.

    It seems he was right about that.
    Lots of other predictions that were not exactly pleasant 🙁

  2. It is far more than a war with Islam … this is just a beginning…

    Ephesians 6:12 (New International Version)

    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,
    against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly

    … by the time this is over, there will be very few left alive.

  3. In 1998, the FBI director of internal security testified BOLDLY before Congress of the Islamic terrorist cells operating within the U.S. Congress did nothing. Ubabaited middle east muslim immigration continues. Taxpayers are funding Islam only schools while these bastards plot our demise. We are “hoisted on our own petard”…thanks to Bill Shakesphear for pointing this out.

  4. One of our Founding Fathers summed this up & i will use Franklins words but apply it to the Muslim power here in the United States that WE as taxpayers help these stinking Islamist
    grow more powerful daily. We ALL (AMERICANS) must hang togetheir…Or we shall all hang
    separtely! We must take off the ‘cuffs’ & battle these heathern bastards with no qaurter, We
    are sorely wrong if we think they will show us any!!!
