Daniel Pipes On What The Terrorists Really Want
#1
One thing about Daniel Pipes, is that he knows how to state the obvious. Too bad that so many westerners fail to see or understand what they have just stepped onto.

Quote:Although terrorists state their jihadi motives loudly and clearly, Westerners and Muslims alike too often avert their eyes. Islamic organizations, Canadian author Irshad Manji observes, pretend that “Islam is an innocent bystander in today’s terrorism.”

What the terrorists want is abundantly clear. It requires monumental denial not to acknowledge it, but we Westerners have risen to the challenge.

John,

These delusional tyrants are exactly like Hitler. In that they tell you their intentions. I assume you,like me,have often wondered exactly HOW Europeans sat around and allowed the rise of Nazi military power?

Appeasment,but it all seemed so hard to really believe looking back on it. I often thought,how did they sit back until it was too late to react without huge casualties?

Well,we're watching a replay of the 1930s ,IMO.

I agree Patrick. Sooner or later, the butcher's bill will come due, and I certainly do not wish to be there when it has to be paid off.

It seems that more and more are coming to the same conclusion.

J,

I have no delusions about the "toughness" of the USA. Our women and parents are cowards generally,our Army is small and we have tasked the tiny few to do all our fighting,while mothers across America beg their sons to stay out of this fight.

I don't think anyone is waking up.

Islamic radicals are,not the spoiled Americans who beg their sons not to join the fight. I very much doubt Europe's parents are more objective than ours.

Didn't Hitler state almost the very same thing Patrick? I suspect that you are allowing pessimism to overrule things here. I will go with the other end, if push comes to shove.

Sorry, supporting the war but not being a combat soldier does not make you any braver than the people who don't support the war.

That's true Anon. Only until you have been to the "big dance" will you know if you have what it really takes.
