Gay Europeans Know the Truth: The Spirit of Appeasement is Killing Us
Sadly, the fact remains: Islamic revolution is spreading rapidly, threatening the civil liberties of all freedom-loving people. If the secularists and multiculturalists refuse to listen to the warnings of American and British voices worldwide, perhaps they will listen to a homosexual from Norway, Bruce Bawer, who writes:
It’s very clear what’s going on here — and where it’s all headed. Europe is on its way down the road of Islamization, and it’s reached a point along that road at which gay people’s right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is being directly challenged, both by knife-wielding bullies on the street and by taxpayer-funded thugs whose organizations already enjoy quasi-governmental authority. Sharia law may still be an alien concept to some Westerners, but it’s staring gay Europeans right in the face — and pointing toward a chilling future for all free people.
This is not fear-mongering or religious bigotry. Rather, it is a sober effort to face the facts and plan appropriate responses in the name of legitimate self-defense and the preservation of freedom.
Our children deserve our best efforts, just as our forefathers and mothers gave their best efforts to preserve freedom and prosperity for us. It is our sacred duty. We must unify –setting aside our petty differences — and face this greatest threat with the understanding that the aim of Islamic revolution worldwide is the complete and utter destruction of our way of life.
Note Bawer, author of While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam is Destroying the West from Within, reporting on how we are promoting our own demise:
Western legislatures and courts have reinforced the ‘spirit of appeasement.’ In 2005, Norway’s parliament, with virtually no public discussion or media coverage, criminalized religious insults (and placed the burden of proof on the defendant). Last year, that country’s most celebrated lawyer, Tor Erling Staff, argued that the punishment for honor killing should be less than for other murders, because it’s arrogant for us to expect Muslim men to conform to our society’s norms. Also in 2007, in one of several instances in which magistrates sworn to uphold German law have followed sharia instead, a Frankfurt judge rejected a Muslim woman’s request for a quick divorce from her brutally abusive husband; after all, under the Koran he had the right to beat her.
Those who dare to defy the West’s new sharia-based strictures and speak their minds now risk prosecution in some countries. In 2006, legendary author Oriana Fallaci, dying of cancer, went on trial in Italy for slurring Islam; three years earlier, she had defended herself in a French court against a similar charge. (Fallaci was ultimately found not guilty in both cases.) More recently, Canadian provinces ordered publisher Ezra Levant and journalist Mark Steyn to face human rights tribunals, the former for reprinting the Jyllands-Posten cartoons, the latter for writing critically about Islam in Maclean’s.

Watch if you will the calm and reasoned attempts of British police to manage a demonstration on the verge of violence, and peer into the future in America, unless we act — BRITISH RADICAL MUSLIMS OVER RUN POLICE!:
Almost without dissent, our military and intelligence experts confirm we are in a global struggle for survival against Jihadists. They confirm our best defense is a sound offense, and for all the mistakes made in Iraq, it remains the most important front in the war on terror, a place experiencing dramatic improvements in security and stability, thanks to the surge, and the resulting improvements Iraqis have brought to the security situation.
Note the recent remarks of USMC Major General John F. Kelly delivered to his troops in Iraq:
Like it or not America is engaged in a war today against an enemy that is savage, offers no quarter, whose only objectives are to either kill every one of our families in our homeland, or enslave us with a sick form of extremism that serves no God or purpose that rational men and women can understand. Given the opportunity to do another 9/11, our vicious enemy would do it today, tomorrow and everyday thereafter. I don’t know why they hate us, and I frankly don’t care and they can all go to hell, but they do hate us and are driven irrationally to our destruction. The best way to fight them is somewhere else and that is why we are here. For whatever reason they want to destroy our way of life our countrymen at home should be on their knees everyday thanking God we still have enough young people in America today willing to take up the fight as our Veterans did from the earliest days of our nation.
And yet we have a candidate for President who would undermine American volunteers on the front lines sacrificing themselves to protect us. Watch IN 52 SECS WHY BARACK OBAMA CANNOT WIN A GENERAL ELECTION:
As a matter of fact, Al Qaeda was present in Iraq before the 2003 invasion. We have been successful in Iraq, generally, and in Sadr City, Mosul and Basra, specifically. The Kurds in the north are thrilled to have been liberated from Saddam. But no amount of success satisfies people who have made up their minds, despite the facts. What about the desires and hopes of the Iraqi people?
We have another candidate for President who has the balls and the brains to stand tough, even in the face of harsh condemnation, a minority voice sounding much like Churchill from long ago. Watch McCAIN: Iraq Hearing Opening Statement:
For all the dramatic success we see today in Iraq, the U.S. media virtually ignores the upside, presumably, because it demonstrates they, and the anti-war hysterics, have been wrong, dead wrong — Success In Iraq: A Media Blackout.
We only have two choices: aggressive self-defense, or surrender.
Staying the course is the tougher road, but it is the right road.
The only alternative is settling for domination by Jihadi extremists.
One candidate understands the stakes, the realities, and the requirements. The other lives in a dream world.
