A Calloused America


Has America become so used to hearing, seeing and reading about terrorism outside of America that our great nation has become calloused? Have we forgotten the horror of a major attack by Islamic terrorists meant to terrorize America? Indeed those Islamic terrorist had won a major battle beginning an American response to Global terrorism at America.

You might say, “How?” We have not had a successful attack on American soil since September 11, 2001.

That is the irony is it not?

The highly criticized (by the Left) Homeland Security methods of keeping America safe (e.g. the Patriot Act) from Islamic terrorist attacks has ironically become a tool of the Left to be critical of American military action in foreign lands (e.g. Iraq).

The callousness of Left funneled information on foreign terrorism and the lack of Homeland terrorism has reduced Americans for the most part to an “I don’t care about fighting terrorism when my job and family is threatened by an emerging economic disaster.”

Americans have forgotten how much the death and destruction perpetrated upon America changed the way America lives. My God I remember a time when you could greet or say goodbye to loved ones at the ramp of an Airline. Those days are gone forever or at least until the West wakes up and gets tough with an Islamic culture
that breeds violence for every perceived offense that comes their way.

When American-Muslims or Muslims of foreign nations living in America are on a flight,
fear can cause misunderstanding in which the Muslims are scrutinized to their detriment. Why? Even though no terrorist attacks have occurred on American soil since 9/11, the American public is aware that there are Muslims in America that support the Wahhabi-Sunni Islam or Shi’ite (err…Iran) Islam. If indeed a moderate Muslim ignores the tenets of violence in their scripture in favor of the scriptures of peace (which due to abrogation is the other way around in Islam), then the moderate Muslim (who publicly ignores or is ignorant of abrogation) is indeed a victim of their true Islamic co-religionists. Then there are Muslims who totally comprehend Islamic abrogation and use Western civil rights laws to flaunt their ability to practice their Theo-Political cult under the protection of the law. This is like the “Flying Imams” who purposely acted in the manner that the 9/11 terrorists purportedly acted on flights that became weapons.

Please America; soften the calluses of your understanding of Islam to keep the vigilance of a free America absent of Islamic aspects of Sharia Law. The very same thing America’s Mother Country – Britain – has effectively failed to do.
Britain is unwittingly paying the price socially and culturally to their own Western Mores and traditions by allowing anti-Western Sharia Law to find roots.

Jonah Goldberg has an excellent essay concerning this callousness of the minds of Americans.
Take a gander of the essay.
