Fighting Terrorism

"Of course, not all Muslims are terrorists. But . . . virtually all suicide terrorists today are Muslims. . . . Muslims have got to understand that a death cult has taken root in the bosom of their religion; feeding off it like a cancerous tumor. . . . If Muslim leaders don't remove this cancer -- and only they can -- it will spread, tainting innocent Muslims and poisoning their relations with each other and with the world." -- Thomas L. Friedman, "Terrorist groups are easy to finish, but hard to find" (Houston Chronicle, 7/5/07).

Friedman has hit on something that I have been saying for some time. If Islam is a religion of peace and not a terroristic religion, then they must police -- and work to put an end to -- the terrorists among them. However, it seems to me that they have been far too silent at best . . . and indirectly supportive at worst.

It's frightening what is happening and how people, to be politically correct, are turning a blind eye. Just recently Cal Thomas used the "cancer" word while referencing radical Islamics and now there is a group threatening him with the "Imus" treatment.

If one really wants to see where this could head - even within our lifetime, listen to what the Chairman Emeritus of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."
Omar Ahmad, Chairman Emeritus, (CAIR).

I know that there are those who will disagree with my analysis, but I fear our political correctness may eventually lead to a Islamic state.

Sorry about the length of this comment.
