Well researched, yet again.

If Bush is all about turning those Japanese internment camps out west into some kind of tax-payer funded museum, let’s make sure they get A LOT OF VISITORS…

I am SO DONE.

Where are the Army barracks that housed the Greatest Generation? Museum? No. Bulldozed.

Round the bastards up.

Very good! Eye-opening. The Sharia-lovers in Minneapolis should move to Somalia.

jdpaz on January 4, 2007 at 10:02 AM

Great Vent.

Islam is the problem.

Unfortunately I don’t think most people have a clue what Sharia means.

CrazyFool on January 4, 2007 at 10:23 AM

It’s becoming apparent that a significant number of Americans simply aren’t taking Islam and Sharia Supremacists seriously. And at this point it doesn’t matter if this is a result of apathy, idiocy, or advocacy.

And the Liberal Left and their minions in the MSM are the ones primarily responsible for this paradigm.

Taking into account the ’06 election and playing devils advocate, one can almost find humor in the irony.

For at the end of the day, it is the secular progressives who will suffer most if the Jihadists succeed.

And it is well established that the Left will surrender rather than fight.

The rest of us will never allow Islam to subjugate us. However the SP’s might find out one day that they are on their own.

Ah yes, the “religion of peace”…

NRA4Freedom on January 4, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Freedom of religion needs to be redefined because it’s too wide open. It’s impossible to have freedom of religion and then have religion’s that contradict the law of that country. The square block don’t fit in the round hole.

Drtuddle on January 4, 2007 at 10:44 AM

Oh, but the Somali Islamists have troops in reserve…in Norway.

It’s impossible to have freedom of religion and then have religion’s that contradict the law of that country.

Which begs the question: Is it possible to separate Islam, the religion, from Islamism, the political-military movement?

Another Brilliant vent from Robert Spencer.

He should be the press secretary (or something!) because he knows how to articulate who our enemy really is and what their intentions are.

He knows how to make America aware that – the wolf is at the door.

flagwaver on January 4, 2007 at 11:13 AM

I do not believe we should allow immigration from predominately Islamic countries except for those fleeing these countries because of persecution for non-Islamic beliefs.

ptolemy on January 4, 2007 at 11:24 AM

Great Vent Robert Spencer! We need this type of clear thinking, excellent reporting, and common sense commentary!

Islam and democracy are not compatable. Islam is not only a religion but a political entity that tolerates none but itself. Those that do not see this facist threat for what it is are in danger of being subjugated.

With the Left, and most MSM components supporting a Left Agenda, it is doubtful that Mr. Spencer’s suggestions will be taken seriously. We have an enemy in our midst and because of the Left they will continue to undermine this nation.

omegaram on January 4, 2007 at 11:49 AM

Just heard a snippet from Ellisson, he said that Islam is not his MAIN focus, he will want to take care of more bread and butter issues that affect people every day, minimum wage, health care,etc, but he DID NOT DENY that Islam is part of his agenda,just implied that is will have to be on the back burner for now.

bbz123 on January 4, 2007 at 11:50 AM

Will this country ever admit it has a terrible immigration problem, both illegal and legal? I swear, political correctness is going to kill us…

Aunt B on January 4, 2007 at 11:54 AM

Excellent.

The truth is eye opening. Islam, Sharia Law they are the oppressors of liberty and freedom. Terrorism walks lockstep with them. Somalia Peace and Justice…what a farce.

It’s becoming apparent that a significant number of Americans simply aren’t taking Islam and Sharia Supremacists seriously. And at this point it doesn’t matter if this is a result of apathy, idiocy, or advocacy.

I agree, most Americans don’t take the threat from Sharia Supremacists seriously because it does not affect their everyday lives. The standard of living and level of comfort enjoyed by most Americans in unparalleled in history. As long as this continues, threats from Islamic Supremacists will just be regarded as idle threats.

And it is well established that the Left will surrender rather than fight.

The rest of us will never allow Islam to subjugate us. However the SP’s might find out one day that they are on their own.

I know how much joy you guys get out of thinking the left has their burkas ready and is counting down the days until Sharia law is enacted but give me a break. America will not be subjugated by Islam. Americans–left, right, black, white, gay, straight, whatever– will never let this happen. Sure, no one seems to be too upset or ready to do anything now, but that’s because we are not being subjugated.

Try taking away the things Americans care about and you will see SPs and traditionalists ready to fight. Tell men they have to go to Mosque on Sunday instead of watching football and you will see people ready to fight. Tell college girls they can’t wear thongs and tube tops and get drunk at frat parties and they will be ready to fight. When people have to buy Bacon from a guy on the street corner they will be ready to fight. Until these terrorists or Islamic extremists or whatever you call them actually start to affect the lives of everyday Americans, we will remain passive. If they ever step on our toes, I don’t doubt they won’t stand a chance though.

JaHerer22 on January 4, 2007 at 12:33 PM

Uh….JaHerer22…

This fantasy land you describe where everyone would “fight”…PRECISELY WHAT WILL WE “FIGHT” WITH…when you Libbies have stripped us of our LAWFULLY OWNED WEAPONS…??????????????HUH????

It is YOU on the Left who insist the Second Ammendment is about militias….WHO EXACTLY will do this fighting????

Oh…I know…you’ll throw bacon at them.

No…can’t do that…might offend P.E.T.A…..

And Mosques….that little detail that you are evidently SO educated about….

they will drag your happy UNARMED @$$ in there on FRIDAYS….not SUNDAY.

Actually, they’ve redeployed to Okinawa.

I think that is the REAL issue and something that should be monitored in the USA. If you espouse sharia..you have forfeited your right to live here. You get a free one way ticket ANYWHERE that actively practices sharia. And you are NEVER EVER EVER allowed back into the USA.

labwrs on January 4, 2007 at 2:22 PM

THIS is a Religious war Political also in the extent most who are immagrating here are on the government dime. They hate the western culture and how it offends them to thier religious teachings. DANGNABITIt ticks me off also but I pray about it and I will be judged on my actions in the end. If we keep up this PC crap it will make our country fold in the long run. WE need men or women who are morally and ethically subtable for public office. Look at the discgracefull actions all around our country starting at the local level, state, and DC. It is a crying shame the troops and leaders who came before us tried to teach us something. I guess the 60′s was the devil’s work in all his glory and some of our politicians are still back in the 60′s along with the huge percentage of college ,professionalsand teachers at the local level that are teaching our kids this PC acceptance garbage. Let’s wake up soon or we will be in major trouble,period.

Oh OK, you girlymen will step up at the last moment to save the American way.

Geez, why am I cynical about that? 9/11 wasn’t enough of a wake up for you twinks.

seejanemom on January 4, 2007 at 1:38 nailed it.

Try taking away the things Americans care about and you will see SPs and traditionalists ready to fight.

Just one example of too many to list.

Among the New London residents the city has tried to force out of their homes was Wilhelmina Dery, who was born in her home in 1918 and has lived there all her life.

“I am sick,” said Susette Kelo, sitting on the porch of the pink Victorian cottage that she bought on her nurse’s salary eight years ago. “Do they have any idea what they’ve done?”

“It’s a little shocking to believe you can lose your home in this country,” said resident Bill Von Winkle, who said he would refuse to leave his home, even if bulldozers showed up. “I won’t be going anywhere. Not my house. This is definitely not the last word.”

“I spent all the money I had to buy these properties,” said Von Winkle, a former deli owner who lives in the neighborhood and owns two other rental homes. “They were not inherited. They were not a gift. I sold sandwiches to buy these properties. It took 21 years.”

Yeah, screw you. The Kelo decision was made by 5 Liberal judges.

Try taking away the things Americans care about and you will see SPs and traditionalists ready to fight.

SCREW YOU!

How many of these Sharia Activists are in Ellison’s blackberry?

bbz123 on January 4, 2007 at 6:24 PM

Just don’t get in a taxi with them if you’re carring alcohol or a dog in Minneapolis.

flipflop on January 4, 2007 at 11:05 AM

That’s a good question. It is more of a political system with a religious element to it. I don’t know if there is an accurate parallel in Western history, unless it was something like the European nations with established churches in the 17th and 18th centuries. The kind people left so they could come to America for religious freedom.

Coyote D. on January 4, 2007 at 7:52 PM

Please Michelle & AP, keep Robert Spencer on the dole here. This is one guy who I figured would run to LFG in a heartbeat given their anti CAIR format. I remember his 1st video here at HA & he was a little bit awkward given it was his 1st, nonetheless a great argument. He’s really getting the hang of it now on video & seems more confident with the format & his prescience.

By the way, I love LFG, but don’t tell them that. It’s been 6 months and I’m still trying to get in their damn Register.

Coronagold on January 4, 2007 at 10:54 PM

I’ll tell ya what the 1,500 Samoli Islamists are doing here in the twin cities. They, along with the rest of the Islamists here, are demanding the United States do their bidding. It’s their way, or the highway. The Minnesota MSM is portraying these people as the poor, poor oppressed. And no, there aren’t any officials that understand what is going on.
Can’t you just see all the libs now. Crunching on their granola & twigs in front of their tv’s saying….”so, where can we protest about this Moonunit?”
(note too Keith) A Qur’an translated too English, is not a Qur’an.
