Thread: Jihad Will Not Be Wished Away

Iran declared war on us in 1979. They're already at war with us. Instead of trying to cajole them into abandoning nuclear weapons, we should be examining ways to undermine the regime and collapse it. Does that mean that we need troops on the ground? No. What we need is to support the Iranian resistance, the same people who have been taking to the streets and demanding reform. We need to equip the resistance with the full range of telecommunications equipment, so that they can communicate with each other and the outside world. We need to expose the horrors of the regime and isolate it, and we need to give sanctions teeth by making it clear that doing business with Iran means not doing business with us (yes, that's an act of war against Iran, but see above). Regime change in Iran means regime change in Syria and Lebanon, where the current regimes are kept in place with Iranian money, Syrian arms and Lebanese terror.
Russia doesn't support Islamist terror. Look up Beslan, or the Moscow theater bombing. The one area that Putin is in lockstep agreement with us is the threat of jihad. We don't need to fight Russia, we need to get Russia to fight for itself.
India detests Pakistan. If Pakistan went away tomorrow, the celebrations in Dehli would be huge. The answer to Pakistan is not to fear India, but to work with India, as well as to start getting serious about Pakistani support for terrorism. Immediately after the Bin Laden raid, when Pakistan began to make noises about their sovereignty and our encroachment, the correct response would have been outrage on our part. A competent president would have announced an immediate cutoff of all aid to Pakistan, pending review of the Pakistani's sincerity in dealing with terrorism, especially given that they harbored Bin Laden for the better part of a decade within spitting distance of their military academy. We should have used the opportunity to force more concessions from Pakistan, rather than suck up to them.
We don't need to invade Egypt. Egypt is collapsing on its own without our help. Their economy is a shambles, and the only thing propping it up is our aid. If Morsi wants to tear up peace treaties, then we can tear up aid agreements. We also don't need to be giving them tanks and fighters. We give those to our allies, and if Morsi isn't going to be an ally, then he can fight with T-72s and MIGs, if he can find the hard currency to pay for them. We need to stop propping up countries that attack our interests.
Domestically, there is nothing in the Constitution that says that the free exercise of religion includes the denial of the rights of others to practice their own faiths. In fact, it pretty much says the exact opposite. The various inroads by the Muslim Brotherhood are not protected practices of religion, but prohibited acts of incitement, terror and fraud. We don't have to expel peaceful, law-abiding Muslims, but we do have a right to expel imams who preach the overthrow of the United States government and the Constitution (sedition is not worship). We don't have to tear down mosques, but we don't have to provide them with sweetheart deals for real estate or otherwise subsidize them. We don't have to ban Islam, but we do have to make sure that Muslims understand that they are only one of many equal religious groups in America, and if they cannot accept that, then there is no place for them here. We can also start denying welfare benefits to able-bodied immigrants, especially illegals. If the Democrats want to make the case that illegals are here to work, then they should be working, not shirking.

I believe that as horrid as Sharia Law is, if these countries kept it among themselves, we wouldn't be trying to kill them. However, they chose to take it to the infidels by killing them with impunity.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

The Islamic fanatics have been doing the same thing for the past 1600 years. There is nothing going to change them at this point. What they do is so engraved into their heritage, that they have to do what they have been doing. The best way to defeat them is to scrub them all out.
A question: Where in the Quran does it say about suicide bombs and 72 virgins when martyring themselves? It doesn't. All it says about is beautiful maidens with pear shaped breasts. Nothing about being virgins, or having 72 of them. And even if there was, what makes them think the virgins would be of the opposite sex?
Something else that makes Islamic fanatics stupid is that the Quran speaks against suicide! Anyone who does it goes to hell and burns in the pit of fire. So all these suicide bombers aren't martyring themselves and going to heaven to be with the 72 virgins, they are killing themselves and ending up in hell to burn for eternity.

I didn't say that we should do nothing, I was objecting more to the thinking of making every nation that is controlled by radical Islamicists into a parking lot, because we won't win by killing millions of civilians.
I agree with you about working to undermine the regime in Iran. I have known several people who came here from Iran after the revolution-Christians and Muslims. Pretty much all of them would like to see their native country under different leadership. Personally, I think empowering women is the key to de-radicalizing Islam, short of divine intervention.
You would like my dentist-she's a Christian whose dad brought the family out of Iran in the 60s. She got her education in the Army ROTC. She has no use for Islam, on the whole, and neither did her father. He had only daughters and wanted better for them than was offered even in the time of the Shah, so he got his family out.

The Qur'an's injunctions against suicide are pretty explicit, but the Qur'an also promises heaven to those who die in the service of Islam, so the imams have figured out that suicide bombing applies to the latter, rather than the former. Of course, I'd be a bit more careful with my immortal soul than most of these clowns, but there have been secular suicide bombers in history, as well (the anarchists of the 19th century were among the most fanatical). The critical piece is the mindset that sees life as corrupt and romanticizes death in service to a cause. It also helps that the majority of Muslims are not Arabs and don't speak (much less read) Arabic, so they don't know that the Qur'an forbids suicide.

Put my tax dollars to eradication of this cancer than Obamaphones. Pull all FBI resources that are watching the mafia and go sit on muzzie doorsteps. Get us off foreign oil so we can once and for all cut our tie to that freaking shithole, dirtbag, extremist producing country known as Saudi Arabia. Other than its cheap oil, NOTHING good comes out of that country. Every time I turn around some Saudi dirtbag is killing someone somewhere. Needle dick jerkoffs. I'm sick of hearing about these shitbags. The mosque these two pukes attended was built with Saudi money. Don't allow Saudis, their friends, family, acquaintances, money, etc into this country and kick out any that are here. And if that strategy turns out to be ineffective then we'll try something else.Be Not Afraid.

She says there is no such thing as extremist Islam. She said it's all like that. Her sister objected-she is married to a man who is a Christian, but has Muslim relatives. The sister (who works in the office) said that she has been to visit her husband's people in Iran and that they are not very observant Muslims, to the point that they have a still (the sister said one of the best-kept secrets of Iran is that so many allegedly devout Muslims have stills).
The dentist told her sister she and her husband were being naive.
