I've written before about political correctness and its destructive effect on America's civil society, but when it's extended to policy decisions abroad it can be only described as national suicide.
We have another example of political correctness in the burning of Qurans in Afghanistan. Argue if you want about it being a mistake or not, but it is clear we owed the Muslim people an apology — an apology, singular, not multiple ones from everyone from the president to generals and on and on. That's called groveling and is viewed by Islamists as America being weak, which emboldens them to even more violence. We see pictures of these people beheading, torturing, dismembering, burning soldiers, journalists, civilians with some hanging from bridges with women and children gleefully dancing under them. Cartoonists or anyone else who offends Islam is met with death threats or death itself.
I know that Islamism is distinct from Islam and that it started in the 1920s with the Muslim Brotherhood and its founder Hassan al-Banna. His principal disciple, Sayyid Qutb, came to the U.S. in 1948 on a fellowship living in Greeley, Colo. To him it was like Sodom and Gomorrah. He hated our haircuts, enthusiasm for sports, jazz and what he called "animal-like mixing of the sexes," even in church! His conclusion was "the white man, whether European or American is our first enemy." If he thought Greeley was bad, imagine if he'd gone to San Francisco!
Islamism declared war on us decades ago for nothing other than just being ourselves. It is a cult of death whose credo is "Allah is our goal, the Prophet Mohammed is our leader, the Quran is our constitution, jihad is our way and death in the way of Allah is our promised end." No apology will satisfy these fanatics. They want us dead, period. Islam is in like danger for you if you're not Muslim enough.
It's time for you to speak out against this movement or you'll be hanging burned and dismembered on a bridge with the rest of us.
