The core problem

Posted by Richard on June 30, 2005

Hugh Hewitt put it as clearly and succinctly as I’ve seen it put:

This is the core problem:  A horrific disfigurement of religious belief into a killing frenzy. It was the motivation behind 9/11, Bali, Madrid, and Beslan, and it is the motivation behind the terror is Iraq today.  The only solution –the only solution– is the creation of societies committed to religious pluralism. It takes a long, long time for such societies to develop, but a beginning has been made in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan.  The president’s speech was an argument about why perseverance is not only necessary but in fact indispensable to survival of the West.  The cut-and-run caucus led by Ted and MoveOn and Howard et al simply refuses to look the evil in its face and deal with it.  Their dodge is to claim that our troops’ presence is the cause of the evil.  This laughable argument is at its heart a suicide note. 

If you still disagree — did you follow Hugh’s link and read Time’s "Inside the Mind of an Iraqi Suicide Bomber" ? You didn’t, did you? Go read it. Then spend some time at DanielPipes.org and at the Center for Islamic Pluralism. Read the material at MEMRI’s Jihad and Terrorism Studies Project.

Finally, when you really know something about Islamofascism and the fanatics who fuel it, you’re welcome to propose an alternative realistic plan for dealing with the problem.

Realistic. That eliminates "let the UN fix things" and "they’ll leave us alone if we leave them alone."
