Nailed Dead to Rights: Bush’s Schizophrenic Approach to Islam

Nailed Dead to Rights: Bush’s Schizophrenic Approach to Islam

Sometimes something needs to be said eloquently, piercingly, and in brief.  Sometimes something needs to be said in this way that is already being widely recognized by others – and even expressed by others, but in a less coherent manner.

Ilana Mercer, of WND, has written just such a masterpiece about President Bush’s tragicomic approach to Islam.  Tragicomic?  Yes: Invading Afghanistan and Iraq on the one hand and going around babbling about the peaceableness and reasonableness of Islam on the other.  Telling people we are at risk to acts of Islamoterrorism on our own soil on the one hand – and doing nothing to secure our hemorrhaging borders on the other.

Moreover, Ms. Mercer actually resorts to the words of the Qur’an themselves in order to buttress her argument that Islam is not now – nor ever has been – a religion of peace.

This article is MUST reading as the war between the West and Islam spreads wider with each passing day.

Assume Bush calls out the murderous nature of Islam and declares Muslims enemies of the USA.

What then?

Taken to fundamentalist extremes, the Bible has also been used to justify murderous behavior.

I'm definitely not comparing contemporary Christians to the Islamofascist assholes. We've actually grown over the last millenium.

What I am saying is that perhaps Bush has to use carrots as well as the stick or we leave Muslims no alternative but to fight.

As a carrot Bush says, "Islam is a religion of peace. You guys aren't really like those other guys, help us defeat them and we'll support you."

As a stick, we kill the assholes who don't get it.

Not saying you're wrong, just posting an alternate theory.

Thanks for the soapbox.
