Islam will not be appeased-now or ever.

The West ,governed as it is by left-liberals,approaches Islam with two big disadvantages;fear and ignorance.The West knows that the Islamic countries have the proverbial boot on it's neck through their control of oil and the willingness to use violence to get it's own way.Most people in the West including a lot of politicians do not know what Islam really stands for or it's history of mass slaughter and attempted genocide.Somehow ,in the muddled minds of the bourgeoise left,the violent tendencies they witness in Islam does not influence them to drop the mantra that "Islam is a religion of peace".They have convinced themselves that there are two Islams,one where renegades blow people up and the other ,real Islam, which is a sort of superior version of Judeo-Christianity.They never seek to find out what the first type believes and the second one doesn't.They either do not know or will not admit that violence,subjugation and a belief in Arab supremacy is what sums it up.They think that Islam will be satisfied with the land known as Palestine.Islam believes that the whole world belongs to it,and that it has a mission from their god,allah,to conquer the world and force the people to become moslems or kill them or enslave them or reduce them to dhimmitude.Any land they have once possessed they will never relinquish claim to it,and will strive to recover it and then move on to new lands.The human rights record of Islam,now and in the past is equivalent with the worst excesses of National Socialism and Bolshevism,with which they have many striking similarities.Islam in reality is a hostile,totalitarian political ideaology,every bit as cruel and dangerous as the other two incarnations of evil of the 20th century.It must be approached in the same way;and dealt with in the same way.If the world wants peace Islam must be changed root and branch or destroyed.I don't think it will change any time soon.

Banging your head against the wall

This just proves again and again, albeit in a different way, that being 'too good' to those who don't want it or appreciate it gets you nowhere. History has shown time and again, that unfortunately, the other side views giving as weakness, and just continues the cycle of terror. Israel, is always pushed back to having to exert it's power, but that is unfortunately the only language they understand. It hurts to watch Israel getting so beaten up for absolutely nothing in return.

action speaks louder than words

I couldn't watch this properly because it was too fast for me to read, but one thing for sure, I believe we as people have tried too much to talk, and other people's words don't always hold. So our action of actually commiting to be a Torah observant nation will have more effect on our Peace than further talking, in my humble opinion that is. Thank you Aish for all that you do.
