WHEN A VIOLENT MINORITY SEEKS TO TERRORIZE US:
A CASE WHERE THE MAJORITY SHOULD RULE
By Darrel Mulloy
If that same ten percent was causing damage to another part of the world, in the name of America, again I would imagine that the ninety percent not involved would rise up to help defeat the ten percent, if they did not agree with their cause.
In his latest column, Dennis Prager talks about just such a ten percent, but not of Ameri- cans. The ten percent he mentions are Muslims. Although not of one nation, they still, we are told, represent a minority view among adherents of the Muslim religion. It should be apparent that the actions of members of this ten percent of Muslims that are causing worldwide terror represent a threat to the entire Muslim world. That being the case, it would seem that it would be in the interest of the entire Muslim world to help subdue those who may eventually cause them great harm.
Not only is this not happening, there seems to be no outcry from leaders of the Muslim religion against the actions of what we are told are a few--a very small group of Muslim extremists. It may be understandable not to hear outcry from mosque leaders in Arab and other Muslim countries, but that outcry has also been absent from mosques in America as well. That might be because, as Prager points out, Muslims believe that the whole world should be Muslim. Prager also states erroneously, that Christians want the entire world to be Christian. While having the whole world as Christian would be prefer- able, if there were to be only one religion, there is not, to my knowledge, a faction of Christian people terrorizing the peoples of the world who are not Christian. There is no possibility of having only one religion, and Christians and Jews, as well as Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and Shintoists, to name a few, seem content to live in peace with the rest of the world. Muslims don't seem to share that tolerance.
I have been criticized by American Muslims for accusing Muslims, instead of Islamists, of being terrorists. However, I have not been enlightened as to what the difference is between Islamists and other Muslims. If you follow the Islamic faith, it would follow that you are Muslim, as followers of Islam claim to be. I would be happy to listen to any ex- planation that would contradict that belief, but absent such explanation, an Islamist is a Muslim in my book.
I and, I would hope, the majority, if not all, other Christians don't care that there are other religions in the world. We are Christians because we believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ. In addition, we Christians, as well as those of the Jewish faith, believe in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, and worship the one God of that Old Testa- ment. We differ from Jews in believing that Jesus was the Son of God, but we still wor- ship one God. The fact that other religions don't worship our God does not cause animos- ity between us, but when the adherents of one of those other religions inflict damage on us, we by right, must retaliate.
If the ninety percent of Muslims who do not support terror end up being collateral dam- age as a result of this retaliation, it is because they did not distinguish themselves from the problem. They are just as threatened by the radical ten percent, which Prager says could total up to 100 million, as we in America, or those in England, Indonesia, Bali, or the Philippines, to name a few.
Terrorism, especially Islamist terrorism, must be eliminated. As regards those states that are unable or unwilling to control the problem of Islamist terrorism, acting alone, it is in their best interest to work with the Western world to stop and eliminate the threat. Failure to do so may result in the death of many innocent people in Muslim as well as non-Muslim countries.
American resolve is strong, and American military might is superior to that of the rest of the world. It should be made clear to those who want to do us harm that they are running into a buzz saw, and are not likely to come out in one piece. Americans love life, and if those who intend to harm us look forward to death, it should be made clear that we will be glad to accommodate them, that we will not hesitate to bring them quick and early deaths in order to keep them from destroying us. Tell the terrorists in unambiguous, un- equivocal, and undiplomatic language that we will destroy them to prevent them from in- terfering with our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If they fail to get the message, show them! Show them with unambiguous, unequivocal, and undiplomatic mili- tary and paramilitary action on the part of the United States of America and its allies.
