Jihad: The Political Third Rail — At CPAC

February 16, 2010 07:32

The jihad against America is more active and assertive than ever — and hardly anyone is talking about it. It is time to take action.


Over one-third of the attempted and successful jihad attacks on American soil since 9/11 took place in 2009. This sharp uptick comes at a time when conservative organizations and media figures are talking about jihad and its root causes in Islamic texts and teachings less frequently and less honestly than at any time since 9/11. At the same time, there is a global initiative at the U.N. and elsewhere to muzzle critics of Islam, criminalizing even honest discussion of the Islamic doctrines that terrorists use to justify jihad violence and Islamic supremacism.


Now we have created an organization to stand up against this silence that threatens to our existence and render us defenseless as our freedoms and way of life are eroded away. We are launching the Freedom Defense Initiative, a new activist group, at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2010, with a conference entitled “Jihad: The Political Third Rail — What They Are Not Telling You.”


Our nation is at war, and yet our politicians pretend that that war isn’t happening. Barack Obama is intent upon trying enemy combatants in that war in civilian courts and making concession after concession to our enemies as if those concessions will make them love us. The mainstream media, both liberal and conservative, and the entire government and law enforcement apparatus appear determined to obfuscate and deny the truth about the enemy’s ideology and belief system. This has the effect of minimizing in the minds of Americans the threat just as it is greater than ever and of rendering us blind to very real threats from people and groups that officials seem intent upon assuming to be innocuous.


Like it or not, we are engaged in a defense action against an Islamic jihad — one whose goals and motives are spelled out in the Koran and the teachings of Islam. Politically correct dissembling about this only makes Americans more vulnerable than they could be or should be.
