Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

A Note To America:

After more than 7 years since 9/11, we can now issue a verdict: Islamic terrorists have won our hearts and minds. Let's thank those who made it happen: the U.S. government, European governments and the mainstream media. It's time to stop placating or being intimidated by Islamic front groups who masquerade as civil rights groups. In 2007, the perversity of [this] was demonstrated when the FBI released its annual 2007 hate crime reports. Of the total 1,628 victims of anti-religious hate crimes, 69.2% were Jewish and 8.7% were Muslim. Yet by my still unfinished account, there were at least 40 times more stories last year about Islamophobia than about anti-Semitism. The Mumbai massacre was a heavily planned plot carried out by Islamic terrorists. Period. Memo to Obama: Until the onus of responsibility is put on Islamic 'civil rights' groups that want to ban free speech and claim that anyone who uses the term Islamic terrorist is a racist, there is no hope of winning the battle."
--Executive Director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism Steven Emerson

Please note that "Steven Emerson is an internationally recognized expert on terrorism and national security and a best-selling author. Mr. Emerson serves as the Executive Director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), an organization he founded in 1995 following the PBS broadcast of his documentary film Jihad in America. Since 9-11, Emerson has testified before and briefed Congress dozens of times on terrorist financing and operational networks of Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and the rest of the worldwide Islamic militant spectrum."

Again, Historical Alzheimers, anyone? Bueller?


Books I recommend by Mr. Emerson:

I've concluded it's total insanity, BZ. What else can one think? Anyone who believes that Jews have committed more hate crimes than Muslims has to be out of their everlovin' minds.

More insanity: Harry Reid has called for a vote in the Senate on the Big 3 bailout. Passed in the House. We might have our final vote today.


Taxpayers, prepare to BEND OVER.

That's what happens when they are more afraid of Muslims (who will kill those they find offensive) than they are of Jews and Christians.

Hi there. I read a lot of your posts on gun control, most of which I agree with. I take issue with your characterization of Islam, though. Think of gun control. People or decisions (or insanity) are responsible for gun deaths, and not guns. When some nut makes a conscious decision to kill someone, it's not because of Islam or Christianity or whatever their religion is. It's because they decided to kill someone. Islam itself and Muslims should not be the target of criticism. Hold individuals responsible for their actions, consistent with your views on gun control which I share.

And all to no avail i take it. People out there in the public really should stop deluding themselves that these leftie apologists for islam are on our side or acting in the name of such fairness. I mean, how can they continue to spout that Islam=peace and that there is no problem. How long can you remain so ignorant and so stupid? The truth is far more uncomfortable i think, they are not on our side, they never were and never will be, and i'm not talking about the islamists, if nothing else they've been crystal-clear on their feelings towards us.

Excellent post BZ. It is so true. This nation is full of apologists and that does not look like it will change anytime soon. This society is sickeningly socially correct. That is going to get us all killed my friend!

Well, I think this is the first time I've been on your site BZ. Good post. I'll be following your site closer from now on.

Luke, brother, I hope that your innocent outlook on Islam is from ignorance and not from choice. Islam has a basic tenant of convert the infadel by word or sword. That's it. That is their only options under their law.

Every madrasah in every muslim nation says that Jews were born of pigs and we are the Great Satan. Give me a break man. The watered down islamics (so called moderates) are killed if they make their moderate views known. I was over there in '91 during desert storm and I've known a lot of muslims in Europe and here in the states. Trust me, their religious convictions are bred in the bone and they take a LONG view of history. Why do you think they still refer to all westerners as Crusaders?

You need to wake up before you get blown up.

Disagreeing with your viewpoint doesn't make me ignorant, Greywolfe. The tenets (not tenants) of Islam you've cited have clearly been selected in order elicit a certain response: outrage towards Islam. Am I correct? I ask because you could just as easily find messages of peace and tolerance and non-violence in Islamic teachings. If you're looking for it, of course.

That's your prerogative, but you should know you're practicing exactly the same campaign of hateful misinformation you likely rail against when you see radical Islamists denounce Jews, Christians, the West, bacon, bikinis, and everything else under the sun. When people do this they differ not by kind but only by degree, and that is frightening.

Maybe someone can answer this question: if Islam itself is the problem, what is the solution? Of course, I could just toe the line and agree with everyone with an obedient little "Hear, hear." But that would be boring. :)

No. Luke I'm afraid you're wrong. I don't believe I've stated that I want all of Islam dead. As has been stated by a MAJORITY of muslims in the Islamic world. I remember the parties in the streets when 9/11 happened. I remember and will never forget the Cole bombing, the numerous embassy bombings or any of the other anti-jewish or anti-American protests in the streets. The burned flags and effigies of bush.

I've seen the videos of the Mullahs spouting their hatred in their mosques. I've researched the television programming for their youth that teach the blessings of Allah on those that become suicide bombers. I have watched the beheading of Daniel Pearl and heard the deafening silence from the Islamic world. For these things to be done in the name of their religion and then they say NOTHING is tacit approval.

And when you want to say that the Majority of Muslims don't believe the way they do in Al Qaida, let me remind you of the ghettos in france that burned for weeks and the subsequent demands that Muslim areas be under Sharia law and not French law. Even here, they wish to have their little enclaves where sharia law would take precident over U.S. law.

I knew, personally, a seargant who married a Turkish woman in Germany. They were both condemned to death by her Islamic family and so the U.S. Army moved them back to the states.

But those of my fellow Americans that wish to keep your heads in the sand, will, and there is nothing that I or anyone else can point out,(for instance the 100's of years worth of teaching in their madrasahs that shout for the sword against the infadel.) that will change your opinions

And as for your final question. It's the same answer that has always been. Kill anyone who would raise a hand immediately and decisively. That is the only thing that religious fanatics have ever understood. You can't reason with them. And you can't placate them. To attempt it is to invite another holocaust. (See also, Iran)

P.S. Thanks for the editing of my incorrect wording. It was a quarter to 3 in the morning and I wasn't up to speed.

You just cited another group of examples which ostensibly support your characterization of Islam, but once again, these are all carefully selected examples designed to elicit a prescribed response: outrage towards Islam. You're railing against the most extremist acts of radical fundamentalist Islam as being representative of all Muslims. That's dishonest, at best.

The impression I get reading your most recent post is that you're not really interested in any information that doesn't support the conclusions you've already reached about Islam as a whole. You tell me whether or not that's true. If it is, then your remark about "heads in the sand" is quite ironic.

The idea of killing "anyone who would raise a hand immediately and decisively" frankly sounds like extremist rhetoric one would hear from bin Laden. It's so far removed from practical reality, it transcends ludicrous. It's just a bloodlust fantasy.

bloodlust fantasy. No. I really wish that it weren't necessary to kill extremist islamics like bin ladin. But unfortunately this is a war of ideas and not of traditional goals(such as taking land or loot). These people, for instance Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, preach the overthrow of America and Israel. And they do it to crowds of THOUSANDS. Every week the madrasahs are full to capacity with screaming muslims shouting for the death of America and Israel. The fact that a few decide to say nothing does not place them, necessarily, on the right side. It merely means that they may not have the fire in their bellies that the extremists do.

The fact that we are at war with people fighting for their religious beliefs is not up for debate. The fact that they started this, is also not debatable. The fact that they train their youth from the time they can sit in front of a TV to honor and strive to be suicide bombers is, likewise, unassailable.

Look at history, luke. History teaches us that, in order to defeat that kind of drive and hate, you have to be every bit as ruthless as your enemy. Giving less is insanity. The BEST way to defeat an enemy that wishes your utter destruction is to destroy them first. Any form of appeasement will just postpone the inevitable.

And as for your comment about my "bloodlust fantasy". I'll bet a dime to a dollar that you haven't watched the execution of Daniel Pearl or any of the others that have died in Islamic hands. Black Hawk Down, for instance. 3000 people died on 9/11 as a sacrifice to Allah. In the USS Cole attack 17 sailors were killed, another 39 wounded. Repeated attacks against our embassies have killed hundreds, over the years.

You have an optimists opinion of Islam, I leave you to it. I, however, have a warriors view. I researched the people that want to kill us and their ideological goals. The fact that you want to protect those that have not, yet, attacked us is laudible. Just as I would have had no problem with Japanese Americans during WWII that fought beside us, I would have no problem with a muslim that decided to fight against his more murderous brethren. However, just as we were willing to do what we must in order to end the Japanese threat, so too, must we be willing to do what we must in order to end this one. Regardless to the cost of lives on their side.

I don't want to kill these people. But they leave us no other choice. Hide your head in the sand if you wish, or fiddle while rome burns. But those of us that place your life over theirs, will do what must needs be done.
