“ But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before
you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them
shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex
you in the land wherein ye dwell.”
~ Numbers 33:55
“The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked above all things. Who
can know it?”
~ Jeremiah 17:9
The gut-wrenching headlines told of the recent terrorist attacks in
India – “Day 3: Terror at the Taj”; “Gunmen seemed to be sure of hotel
terrain”; “Rabbi and wife killed”; “New York guards against Mumbai-like
attacks” – yet all of the liberal media outlets, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC,
CNN and even Fox News seem to ask the same ignorant questions: “Who is
behind the recent terrorist attacks? What is the motive of the people
who perpetrated the bombings and kidnappings in India?”
The Prime Minister of India seems to be the only person on the planet
who realizes who perpetrated such horrid terror upon his country: “India
points the finger at Pakistan.” Yes, it is quite obvious for any person
who hasn’t been completely indoctrinated by our Stalinist public school
system that Muslim religious fanatics, perhaps trained in or facilitated
by neighboring Pakistan, are the culprits.
If one needs further assurance of who these evil men were, just ask some
of the hostages who were lucky enough to escape who said the first
question the Islamic terrorists asked the kidnapped victims was, “Who
has an American or British passport?”
The plot gets more diabolical. Now we know that perhaps the only Jews in
this city of 14 million residents were also killed. A Brooklyn rabbi and
his wife were found among the dead in a series of terrorist attacks in
India that have claimed more than 150 lives. Rabbi Gavriel Noach
Holtzberg and his wife, Rivka, who ran the Chabad-Lubavitch local
headquarters in Mumbai were killed during a hostage standoff at the
center. The chances of indiscriminately killing perhaps Mumbai’s only
Jewish family? One in 14 million.
Yet the liberal media, the president, the president-elect, the
politicians on both sides of the aisle and the ubiquitous “military
experts” all seem to be dumbfounded about who caused these
well-orchestrated series of seven concurrent terrorist attacks? And more
importantly, what to do?
Who are these enemies of civilization? Yes, in India’s case, Islamic
terrorists, but it goes deeper than that.
What cultural, societal, political philosophy allows a pseudo-religion
like Islam to exist and grow in its midst? Liberalism. In my view the
political madness of liberalism is the real culprit behind the bombs of
* Liberalism preaches a brand of egalitarianism that places all

Conservative intellectual, Ann Coulter eloquently prophesied the world’s
pathetic reaction to an international crisis:
There are only two choices with savages: Fight or run. Democrats
always want to run, but they dress it up in meaningless catchphrases
like “diplomacy,” “détente,” “engagement,” “multilateral engagement,”
“multilateral diplomacy,” “containment” and “going to the UN.”
Instead of exporting throughout the world the elements of a
representative democracy and a republic rooted in the Judeo-Christian
traditions of intellectual thought, America has since FDR exported a
bastardized socialism – a diabolical brand of liberalism that is more
akin to Marxism and communism than it is to republicanism and freedom.
How do you “negotiate” with an enemy like radical Islam whose proponents
think they are following the will of Allah when they mercilessly murder
as many innocent men, women and children as they are able?
Liberalism seeks to “understand,” to justify, rationalize and form a
consensus with our Muslim brothers under the presumption, “Why do they
The madness of liberalism is that it always shifts the blame away from
the perpetrators to America. We are the only nation that has this
developed sense of self-hatred, an irrational self-loathing that borders
on the mentally insane.
Regarding the recent bombings in Bombay, liberalism says, “We can’t jump
to conclusions that these terrorists’ acts had anything to do with
Islamic radicalism. No, no, no. That would be imprudent, rash and
racist. We must dialogue with our Muslim brothers to find the real
reasons for their rage against us.”
This kind of perverse logic will cause the death of America, the West
and the entire civilized world and what I mean by ‘civilized’ here are
those nations that still believe in and practice the fundamentals of
civilization: obeying the rule of law, a Constitution rooted in liberty,
justice and equality, freedom of religion, the press, the right to
protest and freedom of assembly.
The last rudiment of civilization any nation needs to survive is to have
the courage to outlaw and destroy any philosophy, religion, ideology or
belief that doesn’t honor the aforementioned fundamentals of
On this point I wrote an earlier article, “Is Islam compatible with a
republic?” In a word, No!
In my opinion Islam is ipso facto contrary to every vestige of liberty,
morality and truth that mankind has fostered for the past 6,000 years of
human history. Why civilized nations allow Islam to even exist in their
countries is, as evidenced by the most recent episode in India, only an
invitation to a slow and painful national genocide.
While President George Bush, the invisible President-elect Barack Obama,
the leaders of the free world, U.N. diplomats and the liberal media all
mindlessly wring their hands and fret about what to do to in response to
the recent savage acts of Islamic terrorism, Israeli commandos are
plotting lex talionis, an eye for an eye justice. Why? Because contrary
to the self-genocide of liberal egalitarianism and U.N. diplomacy, when
dealing with bloodlust savages, only a more savage nation can survive.
