Why Not Radical?

As a christian I practice my faith. I learned from childhood what that means, and my parents instilled a strong faith in God within me. The ten commandments are the basis of my faith. So whenever someone criticizes Obama for not saying the words “Radical Islam” I immediately know he is a faithful Muslim. If I were a Muslim I don’t think I would see someone who fervently guided by the the rules of the Koran as a radical. I would see him as a faithful fervent Muslim. So you see folks, Obama gives away his true faith by denying those words from his vocabulary.

When I see a faithful Christian practicing his religion I feel somewhat guilty that I cannot express myself as fervently. When Obama sees fellow Muslims killing christians, or just plain infidels he sees someone who practices his faith more than he does. Although I have to admit that he is importing more Muslim Syrians than he is Christian Syrians.

Although my faith tells me that I should love my fellow man I take exception to people of the Muslim faith. Somehow, I cannot feel good about loving someone whose religion teaches him to slay the infidel. In fact, I agree more with the dialog of this young lady in the following video. She clearly expresses her feelings and in doing so she speaks for me and millions of Americans as well. Listen to her, she is young but has the maturity of someone ten even twenty years older.

One question I wish some smart Muslim would answer for me is this: Just what is Islam, a religion or a political ideology?
If it is a religion then why do they have to rule countries? If it is a political ideology then you are not protected by religious freedom in America.
The answer is that Islam is a theocracy which is a system of government in which priests rule in the name of God or a god.

I recall reading an article in which Usama Bin Laden discussed why he started al Qaeda. According to bin Laden, the world of Islam was not developing like the rest of the planet. His take on it was that Islam has been diluted by the western world. He felt that Islam should go back to the basics and strict adherence to the Koran, and then Islam would again dominate the world.
Another piece of information is that the religion of peace is peaceful only to the people who are faithful to allah. If you are an infidel, any means can be used against you to defeat you. This is hypocrisy at its finest.

What is the Trigger?

Christianity began with Jesus about two thousand years ago. Catholicism bases itself on three basics: the Old Testament Bible, the New Testament Bible, and Tradition. The movement went unchanged until Martin Luther decided enough was enough. He had a long list of complaints about the things Catholics believed and Rome condoned. He decided to post his list, and to begin a new religion based on the more traditional rules. Since then, Christianity has fractionated many times over into many sects all proclaiming their religion the one that leads to heaven. There are many versions of the bible and depending on which religion you profess decides which version of the bible you follow. Catholics follow only their approved version( Nihil Obstat), Others follow the Saint James version. All of the fractions base themselves on Jesus’ teachings. The fact remains that Catholicism is the one true religion based on Jesus. All the others are inventions of men who have become dissatisfied with one thing or another with the Catholic Church, like selling indulgences, divorce, the Pope, etc. Before that, Judaism was the religion  professing  one God, and a life after death.(Heaven).

I present these facts because I want to make some sense out of the Muslim contention that Islam is the one true religion and that their God is the only God. They also contend that the Koran is the word of their God, and that the Koran contains the guiding principles of Islam. Because the laws contained in the Koran are from their God they over-ride all other law.

What I have trouble with is the hypocrisy of the many Muslim groups professing that they are not the Muslims who profess terror. They are not the radicalized Muslims. They are peaceful, loving, and caring people. Yet, it is always a Muslim who knowingly straps a bomb to his body and walks into a crowded arena to pull the trigger.

Muslims are fractionated just like Christians, and they call themselves Sunni, Shia, Wah Habi, Radicalized, and maybe some more too, but they all purport to derive their beliefs from the same laws contained in the Koran. At least when Luther broke from Roman Catholicism he listed all the problems he had with the system as it was. These became the basis for the new sect called Lutheranism. Where are these same writings for Muslims? Where are the different versions of the Koran that they use to teach their form of Islam? All I ever hear is that the Koran is the word of God and that is what they go by. How can we know which sect of Islam a radical, or a peace-lover truly believe in if they all follow the same word of God? How do the Imams teach the values of their sect when the words of the Koran are the same no matter what? Do all Imams interpret and teach the Koran exactly thee same?

Peaceful Muslims would like us all to believe they are not radicals, yet radicals seem to migrate from within their peace-loving congregations. Why is that? What is the trigger that sets a peace-lover into a bomb blasting beheader? Which word in the Koran sets this person off? If they know what does it, then why don’t a peace-loving Imams revise the Koran so the trigger words are not in their version? As the King in Anna and the King of Siam once said, “Is a puzzlement.”

Will somebody please clear this up for me?

Do Radical Muslims Rattle Before They Strike?

A good friend sent this to me  and I fell in love with the simplicity of this analogy and logic.. I studied logic in school and have come to believe that many people don’t have a clue about what it is. Most times when a person uses logic intuitively he is practicing what I call common sense. I tried identifying the  author and found only a reference to one Leonard J. Cirilo. I do not believe he wrote this but he did write a short book titled Rattlesnake Logic. Rattlesnake Logic is on many blogs since 2012. Given today’s political dilemma on how to deal with Radical Islam I say we should make this our formal policy.

Rattlesnake Logic

As long as we insist on maintaining the “moral high ground” we will NEVER win the war on terrorism. We’re in a conflict in which we absolutely insist in playing by the rules against a maniacal group
who have no rules.
Rattlesnake Logic
After the Boston bombing the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men
did what they did. They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us.
They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible.
The media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals, and about why they could
live among us and still hate us.

A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me: “Here in west Texas I have rattlesnakes on my place, living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.

I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it will bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do. I don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake…I just kill it. I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me.
I just kill them. I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see it I can find out where the other snakes are,
because (a) it won’t tell me, and (b) I already know they live on my place.
So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.

I don’t look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake…I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know, for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush. In my lifetime
I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? No!

Do I respect what they can do to me? Yes! And because of that respect I give them the fair justice
they deserve…. I kill them…”
Maybe as a country we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists’
are just like rattlesnakes, and act accordingly!

I love this country; it’s the damn government I’m afraid of.
