The inanity of political correctness which decrees that evil is good and good is evil now extends itself to America’s war against Islamic fanatics.
In 2001, government officials, from President George Bush, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, and John Ashcroft, to Senators and Congressmen fell all over themselves to make us believe that Islam is a harmless religion. Bush even went so far as to help Moslem children celebrate the end of Islam’s “holy month” Ramadan with a reception at the White House—a despicable and inexcuseable act by the President of the United States. A harmless religion? Nothing could be further from the truth.
Islam is a mixture of Coptic Christianity, Judaism and Paganism and came from the fertile and imaginative mind of the false prophet Mohammed. It was born of bloody struggle and for centuries it was spread across a large part of the world at the point of a sword, and that remains its aim.
Bush and his politically correct cohorts wanted us to believe that Osama bin Laden did not represent true Islam. This was the constant mantra following the attacks on Sept. 11. But the truth is that bin Laden and his fanatics more closely represent the philosophy of Mohammed than any other Islamic faction. Our government officials were willing to kowtow to Islam for political gain—even if it meant lying to the American public about this evil religion. The Marxist left still does.
The Koran itself gives proof of the violent nature of Islam and its assessment of those who oppose it in the following passages:
“Many a time will the infidels wish they had been Muslims. Let them feast and enjoy themselves, and let hope beguile them: but they shall know the truth at last” (“Hedjr” 15:2).
“This Book is not other than a warning and a clear Koran, to warn whosoever liveth; and, that against the infidels sentence may be justly given” (“Ya. Sin” 36:69-70).
“And fight for the cause of God against those who fight against you: but commit not the injustice of attacking them first: God loveth not such injustice: And kill them wherever ye shall find them, and eject them from whatever place they have ejected you; for civil discord is worse than carnage: yet attack them not at the sacred Mosque, unless they attack you therein; but if they attack you, slay them. Such the reward of infidels” (“The Cow” 2:186-187).
All the political correctness, multicultural “diversity” and ecumenical platitudes in Washington cannot change the fact that Islam is a religion which teaches its adherents to kill “infidels.” According to Islam, “infidels” are all non Moslems, and that includes every person in the world who worships the One True God through His Son Jesus Christ.
