The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace. They represent evil and war. I think Jeff Adams, in his latest article "The Religion of Terrorists," has it right:
When we think of Islam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world. Billions of people find comfort and solace and peace. And that's made brothers and sisters out of every raceout of every race.
Islam was born of violence and the spilling of the blood of innocent people, and that is how it survives today. Islam spreads by force and controls by force. Just look at the countries where Islam is the dominant faith. This is not a religion of peace. This is not of God. Islam appears to be grounded in ignorant, unenlightened brutishness, not intellectual or spiritual revelations.Adams goes on to point out that "moderate Muslims seem to only exist where Muslims are in the minority"; the truly devout Muslims are the ones longing to "establish an Islamic theocracy in America."
Do we need to reevaluate our immigration policies? Should we work to stem the flow of Muslims into the U.S.?
We can wage war all across the globe. We can resort to mindless brute force in an effort to combat terrorism overseas. Meanwhile, this country will continue to change from within, and the nation we have known all these years will cease to exist. Say "Goodbye" to the melting potand say "Hello" to the powder keg.
