Dear James and Hugh,
I was just reading the article mentioned on June 18th in SurvivalBlog regarding BHO’s refusal to mention ‘radical Islam’. There are very few things that I agree with regarding the BHO’s thought process, but I tend to agree that our problem is not with ‘radical Islam’. As Scott Ott suggests, a better term would be ‘Literal Islam’. These people wreaking terror all over the world are taking their book of faith seriously or ‘literally’. Such a shame that more of us that claim to be followers of Christ don’t take His book as seriously. If we did from the foundation of this country by our Founding Fathers, we would have no problem with our government as people like the BHO could never be placed in that position.
‘We’ as a nation elected and then re-elected Barack Hussein Obama (BHO), even though he stated “we are not a Christian nation”, much to our shame. We are now reaping the reward for falling away from Christ. I am expecting that we as a nation will elect ‘The B*tch’ (I am being as polite as I can be) as our next president, at which point [the key elements of] JWR’s novels will come to fruition. It amazes me how blind most of us are. – MtH
JWR Replies: The most fundamental issue that needs to be addressed is that western societies have been in denial that Islam is both a religion and a monolithic political system that is surely bent on world domination. Unless or until we come to grips with the fact that Islam itself is the Arabic word for “submission”, and that the phrase “radical Islam” is redundant, then we are doomed. Islam is fundamentally antithetical to western ideals and there can be no placating the Islamists in finding “common ground.” The nascent Global Islamic Caliphate simply and devilishly wants the whole enchilada and will settle for nothing less. I recommend that SurvivalBlog readers take a half hour to listen to the recent podcast interview of Ann Barnhart. This fascinating interview is a real eye-opener.
