It did not come from a mindless bunch of fanatics

Submitted by Dieter, Sep 23, 2014 05:15

It is true that the Muslim fanatics that are rushing to ISIS have already been radicalized in the West, it is equally true that the blind adherence to multiculturlsm has facilitated and financed this howling mob but that in no way can explain the rise of ISIS . All the fanatics and all the money in the world cannot suddenly create an organization like ISIS. Whilst the howling mob of fanatics way well be at the front, behind them is an efficient organization that has not only mastered tactics and strategy but also propaganda, logistics and fiance. I think we are looking at an iceberg and seeing only the little bit at the top of the water.

 

Eight recipients of zakat

Submitted by Carl Goldberg, Sep 18, 2014 01:22

The eight recipients of zakat were not dreamed up by the Muslim Brotherhood. They come straight from the Qur'an, 9:60.

"Alms are for the poor and the needy, and those employed to administer the (funds); for those whose hearts have been (recently) reconciled (to the truth); for those in bondage and in debt; in the cause of God; and for the wayfarer: (thus is it) ordained by God, and Godis full of knowledge and wisdom."

West playing the victim?

Submitted by kalpak, Sep 13, 2014 00:45

West has been actively support these radicals for decades. Not going too far into history, a few days ago, UK parliament has the audacity to debate on human rights in Kashmir, the region that is legally a part of India. How about a debate on Pakistan occupied Kashmir? 2 American citizens has been found to have actively helped Pakistan in the Cross border terrorism attack on Bombay (26/11). Has America handed over these terrorists to India to face trial? Supply of weapons to the failed state of Pakistan has not stopped.

 

Dumb And Dumber

Submitted by Michael, Sep 12, 2014 17:31

Remember the drawings in your high school history books of the British Red Coat Army during the American Revolutionary War standing shoulder to shoulder in a straight line formation waiting to catch some bullets fired at them from the camouflaged Colonialists?

Today, the western civilized world has traded in their red coats for an invisible bulls eye painted on our chest.

Heaven forbid we offend our Muslim friends, that would not be politically correct.. It is against our Christian values. After all, we are a civilized people and want to give others the benefit of the doubt. As our righteous President Obama is keen on reminding us, we should not judge the many for the actions of a few radicalized terrorists. Hmmm.

I believe the world wide population of Muslims today is 1.2 billion. It has also been determined that somewhere between 15 to 20% have been radicalized or are strict adherents of Sharia law. That would translate into well over 150 million Muslims at the lower range that would prefer to see our heads on the end of a stick than on our necks. That sounds like more than "a few" to me.

Time to separate the wheat from the chaff. Radical Islam is not diminishing....it is growing by the day.. It is Western civilization that is shrinking. Tough decisions lay ahead but need to be made before they can't. Passing the buck only puts off the inevitable but no politician wants to take responsibility for being the one to pull the trigger.
