When figuring out what people mean, it helps to listen to what they say. Why after decades into the global jihad, those on the Left are still struggling to fathom what motivates Jihadists, boggles my mind. They tell us in every other breath why they are waging Jihad against us. To pretend they are not acting out of religious motivations found in Islam, when they quote their religious references, down to the verse, means you’re either an idiot or you’re willing to put political correctness over national security. Taking the Islam out of global Jihad is like pretending Spam is really ham.
Last night, during the second Democratic presidential debate, none of the three Democratic presidential candidates could mention the Islamic motivation that’s central to global jihad. Queen Hillary waxed on and on, praising President Bush for not calling it a holy war. Sanders and O’Malley likewise would not mention Islam in connection to the terrorist attack in Paris. They also offered no real plan for how to defeat global jihadists.
If someone says they want to kill you because his religion compels him to , then a rational person would not argue about what that person believes, you’d take the appropriate measures to protect yourself. I take what they say, as what they mean and they keep demonstrating they will act on their beliefs. Good enough for me – you say you see it as a ‘holy war” and you want to kill me and annihilate my fellow countrymen – I believe you – done deal! If the respected legal and religious scholars in the Arab world sanction your global jihad, who am I to quibble with what is really “Islamic” and what isn’t?
The Queen reigned supreme in that debate and Sanders and O’Malley tiptoed around even disagreeing with her. O’Malley got the evil eye several times, so his name assuredly got etched onto the Clinton machine hit list. Same old, same old in the coronation process.
