Diplomacy to Islamists Doesn't Work

Sometimes the New York Times makes me laugh. Here's the humorous headline from Sunday's paper: "Islamist Group Breaks Pledge to Stay Out of Race in Egypt."

In other words, Muslims lie, just as they are instructed to do to infidels by their Koran. I have predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood wanted to take over Egypt, and for that matter, the rest of Arab countries. Few would listen and no one at the State Department appears to be listening. They think diplomacy and showing Muslims all the mosques we have allowed in America will make a difference and they will decide not to kill us here in America.

Those who believe this are fools. Yes, you heard me. They are fools. Muslims persecute and kill Jews and Christians in their countries. What makes us think being nice will make them persecute less, or cease from what they believe is their mandate from Allah to control the world?

That isn't "Islamophobia," as my critics claim. It is what many of their leaders say. Groups like CAIR cannot and will not deny it.
