SAN DIEGO, February 8, 2015 – It appears the rest of the world has broken through the Islamophilia that still grips those in charge in this country.
In Arab countries, leaders are working to old radical Islamists responsible for their actions. The United Arab Emirates placed the Council on American-Islamic Relations and others on the terror watch list in their country. Egypt is looking to arrest a spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, and President Al-Sisi has spoken of a reformation of Islam to become part of the modern world.
And then there is our administration, which admittedly has no strategy.
President Obama has cited Yemen as a success story in the fight against terrorists. The United States is heavily invested in counter-terrorism operations in Yemen, and has launched numerous drone strikes against terrorists in Yemen. Yet the murderers of the Charlie Hadbo staff received training in Yemen, and terrorism continues to thrive in the area.
Even our own military say the “degradation and destruction” of ISIS isn’t working. And Al-Qaeda isn’t decimated, our Community activist in chief declarations do not make it so.
Radical Islam is with us, probably in this country, and still this administration turns a blind eye to any strategy to displace those who would do us harm. England, France, and most other western democracies are waking up to the fact that the ideology of radical Islam is a very serious threat.
It is an ideology stuck in the seventh century, but with highly sophisticated weapons.
After the attacks in France, most major democracies decried the attempted hijacking of free speech.
Yet President Obama responded by proclaiming “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Then the President trots out his spokesman Josh Ernest to say the priority is to fight Islamophobia. They say most Muslims are peaceful and don’t agree with the terrorists. But they ignore the fact that radical Islam is infiltrating our country and that jihadists are targeting our very way of life.
It is time for America to stand up to the threat of radical Islam. It is time to identify it as the threat it truely is, and to stop excusing it.
It is time to start to fight back.
