Scary Times, Prescient Men

Tony Blankley has pointed out that the moral confusion that has been surrounding the issue of Islamofascist terrorism is, slowly but surely, gaining clarity.

This poll suggests that there has been some progress -- people understand the Islamofascist threat -- but that opinions differ not just on how, but whether to confront it; 47% believe we must confront the threat, 45% apparently believe that we can avoid it simply by staying out of the Middle East.

Well, it's time for the 45% to understand that this isn't about a defined set of political objectives on the part of the terrorists; it's about destroying our way of life across the globe, and offering theirs as a substitute.

Staying out of the Mideast would only encourage the terrorists by making them think we will retreat when things get tough. Notice how the Islamofascists responded to Israel's withdrawal from occupied lands.

Also, while I am encouraged that Americans are beginning to realize the threat we are facing, it amazes me that 24 per cent of Americans still do not think Islamic fundamentalism is a threat.

How many in the USA wanted to leave Asia to Tojo on December 8 1941?
