More terror arrests in Melbourne. Three men have been arrested and a terror plot foiled.
Iran is trying to flex their muscles at the moment, launching missiles and torpedoes in an attempt to show they are not to be messed with. Additionally, they are threatening terrorist reprisals if the US attacks it's nuclear sites. Terrorist activities? I guess that quote about being part of an Axis of Evil is accurate.
Front Page magazine explains why the peaceful majority is irrelevant in Islam.
used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War Two. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.And the same for the Soviets, the Japanese. History should teach us that although most Muslims are peace loving, unless they do something to stop their own religious fanatics, they are irrelevant.
"Very few people were true Nazis" he said,"but, many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories."
Dennis Prager, also referring to Nazi's and Soviets, explains why the Islamic Threat is much worse.
Just as previous generations had to fight Nazism, communism and fascism, our generation has to confront militant Islam.He is referring to the vast number of Muslim's and that they don't mind dying, which makes Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) a less useful pacifier.
And whereas there were unique aspects to those evils, there are two unique aspects to the evil emanating from the Islamic world that render this latest threat to humanity particularly difficult to overcome.
Investors Business Daily wonders how people can view Islam as a religion of peace.
In the wake of the cartoon jihad and mosque-on-mosque violence in Iraq, most Americans now think Islam has more violent believers than any other faith. Yet many still view it as a "peaceful religion."Some verses are listed to back up the holy text comment. Just remember that interpretation in Islam is done by having later pronouncements supplant earlier ones, so some of those verses may not be current.
Psychologists might call this cognitive dissonance — a state of mind where rational people essentially lie to themselves. But in this case, it's understandable. In our politically correct culture, criticizing any religion, even one that plots our destruction, is still taboo. And no one wants to suggest the terrorists are driven by their holy text.
Gates of Vienna has an article on Muslim terrorists bombing voting booths in Thailand. Just remember this when the moonbat left blames all the violence in Iraq on US presence. It seems they don't need the US as an excuse in many cases.
