The Religion of Peace™
By Michael Oberndorf

The Religion of Peace™ is on another murderous rampage, slaughtering over two dozen random people so far, including four Americans. The justification? Some Korans, the Muslim's so-called "holy book" were inadvertently burned at a NATO base in Kabul. The general in command immediately and grovelingly apologized. And of course, so did apostate Muslim, Barrack Hussein Obama-Soetoro.

The Groveler-in-Chief did what he does best: bowed and scraped before the 7th century savages of Afghanistan, begging forgiveness while humiliating America before the Muslim world. However, t'would seem that the Muslim world cares little what this fool has to say, and went about indulging in their favorite pastime. Seems that Obama-Soetoro "deeply regretting" is not enough for the mindless Muslim masses to refrain from mass murder.

It should disturb the heck out of Americans that this is the "official" reaction to the murder of Americans by Islamic jihadist fanatics. Seen in conjunction with worldwide murderous attacks on Christians by Muslims it should be obvious that jihad is not a "struggle to excel" or "an individual's striving for spiritual self-perfection," nor is it aimed solely at Jews. It is part and parcel of Islam, as written in the Koran and subsequent writings that expanded on the original "revelations." And it is proselytization by force of arms, spreading Islam, The Religion of Peace™, by killing or enslaving all non-believers who refuse to convert.

If you were to go out on the street, here or in Europe, it's unlikely that you would find anyone under the age of 50 who could tell you who Charles Martel was. This should not be a surprise, given the revision of history by the left to erase the memory of the heroes of Christianity and Western Civilization, and Martel was one of the greatest of these.

In 732, an army of 80,000 followers of The Religion of Peace™ marched out of the Iberian Peninsula, intent on overrunning the rest of Europe, and slaughtering or enslaving all who would not submit to the will of their god, Allah. Charles Martel, also known as Charles the Hammer, grandfather of Charlemagne the Great, with an army of only 30,000 foot soldiers (the jihadist army had masses of cavalry) routed them at the Battle of Tours, and by 736, had driven all the jihadists out of the kingdom of the Franks (http://militaryhistory.about.com/od/army/p/martel.htm). Brings to mind the Six Day War.

Jihad has a long, bloody history, in India and Pakistan against the Hindus, for example, and in Africa against Christians, Jews, and animists. However, let's not overlook Iran, its "nuclear program," and its incessant threats to wipe Israel and America off the face of the Earth. Interestingly, though, Islam's military successes have been very limited, except against the impoverished, ill-equipped peoples who today comprise much of the Third World. Coincidence?

In the West, and here in America, we have witnessed a growing string of incidents of violence and murder by adherents of The Religion of Peace™ (http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/44844; http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2009/03/honor-killing-islams-gruesome-gallery.html). Violence and abuse always lurk in the background of their treatment of women (http://www.islam-watch.org/Larry/Muhammad-in-Islamic-writings-sex-life-sexual-abuse-pedophilia.htm). And still the left bends over backwards to excuse this savagery and to make Islam out as something oh-so-superior to Christianity. In this, the left is carrying on the tradition it started with the largely Communist IRA, the Irish Republican Army, who were quite willing to overlook the evil of Nazism, and supported Hitler in hopes he would defeat the British.

The American left arrogantly and/or naïvely believes that supporting radical Islam will hasten the collapse of the free, capitalist West. What these unmitigated morons fail to understand is that everything they believe in is antithetical to Islam, and that once the battle is over, they will be the first to be enslaved or beheaded. I find it mind-boggling and absolutely incredible that these delusional fools think atheism, unrestricted sex, homosexuality, drugs, rock 'n roll, and women's lib are things even marginally acceptable to The Religion of Peace™. When jihadists hysterically chant "Death to America!", this is a large part of the America they are referring to.

In view of all this, in the upcoming elections for the House and the Senate, we need to look for men and women who are not afraid to stand up for the supremacy of our Judeo-Christian traditions and Constitution over foreign ones, and believe that religious law, especially Isalmic Shariah, has no place in America. Shariah is the legal codification and justification for the violence and oppression described above. To allow it to gain even a toe-hold in America is an insult to every living citizen, and to all those who have given their lives over our 230+ years of history as a free nation, defending that freedom and the traditions and institutions that made it possible. This is a lesson that Barrack Hussein Obama-Soetoro and his willfully ignorant followers sorely need to be taught.
