Last weekend, the feds popped two more US citizens who yearned to kill their fellow Americans for Allah. They hoped to join al-Shabab, Somali’s ruthless jihadis, but fantasized about slaughter right here at home.
And, once again, any mention of Islamist extremism was absent from government statements, as if these guys were just angry about parking tickets.
The would-be Times Square car bomber, the guess-what’s-in-my-knickers Christmas Day airline bomber, no end of got-‘em-in-time apprehensions, plus the Ft. Hood butcher, Major Nidal Hasan…and even the media barely hint at what all these fanatics have in common.
Dare to suggest that radical Islam might be to blame, and you’re a bigot. Just as pointing out that Palestinian terrorism led to Israel’s hard line stand makes you a fascist. But those who reject radical Islam’s role as the driving force behind today’s terrorism must answer one obvious question:
Where are the Christian terrorists?
The ignored persecution, deprivation and massacres aren’t in Gaza, the global left’s favorite petting zoo. The cover-up victims are the Middle East’s Christians.
Set aside for now the vast Christian communities that once thrived between Morocco and Mesopotamia. The multiple holocausts they suffered for over a thousand years at Muslim hands doesn’t fit the White-House-approved narrative.
Let’s concentrate on today—when the only country left in the Middle East in which Christians enjoy complete freedom of worship, freedom from secret police surveillance, forced conversions, pogroms or civil strife, is Israel.
But that won’t do, either. Can’t make Israel the good guy. So how about those “suffering Palestinians?” You know, the folks that chick-lit Che Guevara, Rachel Corrie, sought to rescue from an Israeli bulldozer…
Well, the Palestinians who’ve suffered the most have been Christians. And it hasn’t been the Israelis who’ve been persecuting them.
Where are the Christian terrorists? Aren't they in America, in "extreme right-wing militias"? At least, that's where Janet Napolitano says they are.
