The United States continues to remain vulnerable to Islamic radicals and their jihad (holy war) fueled by religious hatred. The world is faced with a global Armageddon like occurred with Nazism in the 1930s. Just as Hitler wrote of world conquest in his book "Mein Kampf," Islamic radicals write of their struggle for world conquest in jihad writings.
Suicidal actions of Islamic radicals are based upon assumptions that beautiful virgins await them in heaven. These thoughts are promoted in the Muslim Quran and falsely based upon Mohammedan's studies of the ancient mythologies of Mesopotamian Zoroastrianism. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the majority of peaceful Muslims will publicly reject these writings.
Like the period preceding World War II, and Nazi rise to power, the rest of the world citizenry and their governments remain aloof, naive and apparently ignorant of the obsessive threats and refuse to recognize the worldwide danger. During the past few years, terrorists' attacks worldwide have killed and seriously injured hundreds of thousands around the world and have cost the United States, England, France, Spain, Germany, Russia, Africa, and scores of other countries, billions of dollars in damages and lost economic production. These attacks are not isolated but are part of a worldwide war. Free world governments, particularly those of the U.S. Congress, England, and Canada appear impotent and incompetent to address the problem in a timely and aggressive manner.
Just as Hitler took over youth movements, radical Islamic terrorists have taken over Islamic youth organizations around the world are programming Muslim youths under their control to "kill all who do not agree with our teachings in Allah's name."
Time is on the side of these individuals and their threats to peace, and eventually they will find ways to attack our public water systems, electrical systems, communication systems, banking and economic systems, and essential infrastructures with chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. The free world is awash in a culture of denial just as it was during Hitler's rise to power. As the author and historian Sir Martin Gilbert has stated, "We refuse to connect the dots."
Anyone who traverses the Internet and searches articles, commentaries and video strips will discover hundreds of Islamic-extremist speakers, jihad radical clerics and Imams who stand in public squares and Moslem Temples in New York City, London and other large cities and aggressively calling for a declaration of war, insurrection and overthrow of state and national governments worldwide, and the mass annihilation and extermination of anyone who does not subscribe to their fanatical Islamic religious beliefs or accept their political legitimacy. And hundreds of books published by these fanatics are available from publishers around the world.
Terrorists recruit followers from dissidents and religious fanatics, while the majority of Muslims seem to ignore and denounce their diatribes and barbarous, venomous speeches. Peaceful Muslims must publicly and aggressively call for the immediate expulsion of radicals from their midst, their churches and countries.
Edmund Burke, an Irish philosopher and statesman once wrote: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
