Followers of Jesus are mocked all the time about our faith, but we don't riot and kill as they are doing throughout the Middle East. Our God doesn't require it.
Here's what I think: the two lines of Abraham are coming down to the final conflict. Radical Muslims talk about ushering in Armageddon with bombs directed at Israel. They don't have a clue.
American homeland security is warning of possible violence in America due to this amateurish YouTube video about Mohammed. That video was used as a pretext by people already planning violence. You can believe that and not criticism of the video by Secretary of State Clinton. Nothing we do or don't do will stop the crazies from their two goals of eliminating Israel and then coming after America.
We are being infiltrated. Mosques continue to be built here. Iran claims its agents live and work among us, waiting for the moment. What will we do when Americans start dying again here? This administration's foreign policy has failed; its domestic policy too. Better keep this in mind as the election approaches.
I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
