The March of Extremism

August 3, 2009

Here’s the latest from the war front: hundreds of rioting Muslims attacked Christians in eastern Pakistan on Saturday. They burned and looted their homes and killed at least six Christians, including a child, and wounded ten others. The reason? A rumor that someone had desecrated a Koran. 

Meanwhile in Iran, which has always said it is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes only, intelligence sources say a bomb and delivery system could be built within a year once the Supreme Ayatollah gives the word. May I remind you that Muslims are permitted to lie to infidels in the pursuit of their twisted objectives, which are mainly to kill us?

And then Britain, which has let in far too many immigrants from Muslim countries, is now having second thoughts. The government wants to tighten restrictions on immigrants and who becomes a British citizen. Among the reasons they might be denied citizenship is participation in what are deemed “unpatriotic activities.” Good luck with that one. A little late, I would say. And that’s the latest from the war front, which the West is not winning because it is barely fighting.
