Something missing in the anti-jihad movement
Jihad Watch has an item about the attempt on Kurt Westergaard’s life, and in 36 hard hitting, courageous, and true readers’ comments about the Islamic menace that follow the entry, not one commenter says what we should do about this menace. Not one. The notion that we must do something about the Islam threat, instead of just talking about how bad Islam is, doesn’t even occur to the most outspoken anti-jihadists.
Thus a JW commenter “Canto 28,” quotes Kurt Westergaard from the CNN article on the attempted murder and adds a further thought:
“It has made me angry that a perfectly normal everyday activity which I used to do by the thousand was abused to set off such madness.”All true. So, “Canto 28,” what do we do about that? Do you have nothing to say about that?
Here’s what I say. I say that (1) we must state publicly that Islam is a mortal danger to us; then (2) we must get politicians to state publicly that Islam is a mortal danger to us, as Geert Wilders consistently does; and then (3) we must pass and enforce laws that remove Islam from us.
I am fully aware that Western countries are not at present prepared even to contemplate such steps. But how can we get there, except by arguing for it and, one by one, persuading people of it?
Does anyone have a better plan?
