For Hillary, talking about Islam 101 as a major threat doctrine with severe ramifications for the West and the rest of the world,…..is not to be taken seriously.
Hillary Still Not Getting Islam, and Neither is Europe
This week U.S. Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton pushed back against Republican candidate Ted Cruz who advocated for carpet bombing ISIS. According to Clinton:
“Shallow slogans don’t add up to a strategy. Promising to carpet bomb until the desert glows doesn’t make you sound strong — it makes you sound like you’re in over your head. Bluster and bigotry are not credentials for becoming commander-in-chief.”
Clinton’s most telling remark is that an aggressive attack against ISIS would constitute bigotry. I find this extremely ironic. ISIS has been committing genocide against non-Muslims while enslaving girls and women for their raping troops, yet wiping out their command center is bigotry? (Of course, Clinton proved she was way over her head with the take-down of late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, and Libya’s descent into chaos, but that’s a side point here.)
While I cannot claim to speak for ISIS’s victims, I clearly remember Holocaust survivor relatives saying “if only the Allies had bombed the tracks to Auschwitz or even the whole camp—had they done that, at least the murder would have stopped.” In retrospect, had ISIS been stopped previously—even at the cost of the lives of civilians in Raqqa—how many more lives would have been spared? While Clinton and the left take the alleged moral high ground, the carnage continues.
The same is true in Europe, where profiling and tighter security are seen as unfair to Muslim minorities, while little is done to stop terrorists. This week we saw the premise of the Muslim innocent bystander substantially degraded when the Paris attacks’ bomb maker, the fugitive Salah Abdeslam, was finally caught in Brussels, more or less at home. Abdeslam was able to shelter in his home neighborhood because the Muslim community there is sufficiently sympathetic to terrorism or cowed by it; Belgium’s Muslims are notorious for joining ISIS in the highest numbers in Europe.
The appeal of joining ISIS—a group of violent sociopaths if there ever was one—is incomprehensible for those of us who just want to get on with our lives, and we assume that is true for everyone the world over. This is the major mistake Westerners make. While we cheer for the underdog, the Muslim mindset is to back the strong horse. Right now the strong horse is ISIS and its cohorts. That is why ISIS banks on terror attacks to increase recruiting: making the West look weak and vulnerable ups ISIS’s appeal. When EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini cried after the Brussels attacks, she provided useful footage for jihadi recruiters.
What the EU elites don’t get is that the weaker and more tolerant they are of Muslim imperialism at home, the less chance they have of integrating Muslims. When there is no fear, there is no respect. Why back a loser? Why not support the strong horse?
Islamic incitement in the mosques of Europe includes the degradation of the kuffar, the non-believer, and the promise to eliminate the kuffar regime. For Muslims, the no-go zones are a first foothold for a new Islamic regime on the soil of Europe. Re-taking control of these areas via police or even military action is essential to breaking Islamic dreams of ruling Europe. Arresting hate preachers is another key step, as pointed out this week by terror expert Dr. Sebastian Gorka.
Promising to carpet bomb ISIS is, in fact, the right thing to say if it is substantiated by effective military action. Obama’s immaterial red line was a sign of Western impotence and a green light not only for Assad, but for ISIS as well. It is imperative to weaken ISIS and take away it territorial holdings in large areas of Iraq and Syria. Taking down ISIS will also stop brother groups such as Boko Haram from basking in the reflected glow of bloody terror victories. Few in the West know or care about the slaughter in Africa perpetrated by Muslims, but this is not an issue the West should ignore.
Showing strength is not, as Clinton believes, bigotry. It is standing up for the principles of Western society in the face of the Islamic imperialism that seeks to conquer Europe as its first step. There is a fine line between complicity and cowardice. If America fails to fight this war away from home, it will become the war at home—as we have already seen.
