He and his ilk insist on ignoring the truth about Islamic terror: jihad is an act commanded in the Koran by Islam’s bloodthirsty warrior-founder Mohammad, and America is at war with Islamic terrorists, not drug smugglers. Radical Islamists will continue terrorizing infidels, apostates, women, children, and gays no matter what the Left says because they are motivated by the religio-political doctrines laid out in the Qur’an and Hadith. Terrorism and jihad are not protest marches against war or government; they are violent acts of war meant to destroy everything and everyone in a battle for power and world domination.
Islamic terrorists want to commit murder and chaos, not enter into military negotiations. They live to kill, and their greatest desire, something else leftists can’t wrap their thinking around, is to martyr themselves in suicide.
Perhaps Lind has been asleep the past ten years. The 9/11 terrorists were not blowing up buildings simply to make a statement–you wear too much purple eye shadow when you want to make a statement. Bin Laden had 19 hijackers attack America because America is not Islamic; it does not adhere to sharia law, the Islamic system extremists seek to install worldwide.
This is at odds with accepted leftist thought, so commentators like Lind seek ways to shift the blame to America and Americans. In doing so, Lind’s words actually protect and enable terrorists.
The Left willingly hands our enemies the unconditional political correctness love card, while scolding anyone using nasty and “inappropriate” “metaphors”—”Islamic terrorists” and “The War on Terror”–as the bad guys. But al Qaeda and jihad are not going away, and neither can be stopped with handcuffs and Miranda rights.
We’d all better wake up fast. We’re are not at war with car-jacking gang-bangers, we’re at war with Islamic jihadists.
