THE ISLAMIC WAR ON AMERICA
In the aftermath of the killing of an Iranian military terrorist, the Democrats are using the scare tactic of claiming the U.S. is on the verge of a war with Iran, which ignores the fact that a state of war already exists.
It is not historically inaccurate to state that the religion of Islam has been at war against the non-Muslim world for 1,400 years, and it continues even today. The Koran (8:39) unequivocally states, “Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme.” The jihad, a “holy war” or “struggle for the faith,” is a religious obligation that will continue until the entire world has either adopted the Muslim faith or submitted to Muslim rule. Those who ignore this reality do so at their peril.
Within this 1,400 year war, November 4, 1979, marks the beginning of the state-sponsored Islamic War against the United States of America. It was on this date that the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, was attacked and seized, and 54 American citizens were held hostage for 444 days. Americans would be well advised to recognize this as the date that Iran, in the name of Islam, declared war against the United States.
The United States was preoccupied with winning the Cold War against the Soviet Union and paid little heed to this declaration of war. Attacks against Americans, such as on 4/18/83, when 83 people were killed at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon and on 10/29/83 when 241 U.S. Marines and Navy personnel were killed in a truck bombing also in Beirut, seemed merely an extension of typical Middle East violence. However, the Iranians and their Islamic brotherhood saw the subsequent American withdrawal from Lebanon as a great victory against America and were emboldened to go further.
On 12/21/88, 259 people died when Pan Am Flight 103 exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland; on 2/26/93, six people were killed and 1,000 injured when a bomb exploded in the basement of the World Trade Center; on 6/25/96, 19 U.S. military personnel were killed and 200 injured in the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia; on 8/7/98, 224 people were killed and 5,000 injured in the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania; and, on 10/12/00, 17 U.S. military personnel were killed and three injured in the attack on the USS COLE in a Yemen harbor.
For the first 21 years of this war, America did not retaliate. It was not until 2,977 died and over 6,000 were injured on 9/11/01 in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that America finally began fighting back.
The British philosopher John Stuart Mill wrote an apt description of today’s pro-appeasement Democratic Party: “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”
