This letter appeared in the Jonesboro Sun today. Mr. Brewer knows what he is talking about. He is obviously well read on the Islamic jihad problem that we face more and more each day – Burkasrugly
In the wake of the Islamic jihad attack that left a dozen journalists dead in France, one would think that every sane person would be concerned about getting to the root of the problem, but that is not the case. No one in our government or pandering media dares to say what the problem really is.
Mainstream journalists downplay or totally ignore the obvious; that Islam has a real problem with violence. Some have called for its reform, but how can that be even possible when according to Islamic scholars the words and laws of Allah are immutable (unchangeable)?
Islam’s holy texts have at least 109 verses like Koran 8:12 – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” Isn’t it obvious where they got the idea to behead people? It is either willful ignorance or a total lack of understanding of the Islamic religion that leads people to say foolish things like “ISIS is not Islamic.”
What about “Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them.” (Koran 9:123 ). Another interesting verse is “Muhammad is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” (Koran 48:29)
No one has ‘hijacked’ this religion. Violence is commanded in its texts.
Liberals and atheists foolishly whine that conservatives want a theocracy when nothing could be further from the truth. In the same breath they deny that there is any danger to the US from Islam. These useful idiots would be the first ones the jihadists would behead.
Islam is much more than a religion. It is a supremacist political and social system that promotes violent aggression towards non-Muslims. To deny this is to deny what we see every night on television.
If Western journalists had bent over backwards to excuse Nazis of savagely murdering Jews during WWII people would have been furious – and rightly so.
So let’s stop pretending and tiptoeing around the truth. The media, our government, and a good portion of our citizens need to face the facts. Islam is at war with us whether we want to admit it or not.
