Apologizing to Islam
by Barbara J. Stock
May 16, 2005
We Americans need to get our priorities straight.
We are at war with Islam. I want President Bush, Secretary Rice, the
media, and the bleeding-heart liberals to stop apologizing to Islam and I
want it to stop right now. Islamists are slaughtering people all
over the world. Islam has threatened to make our streets “run red
with American blood.” A Saudi Islamic cleric gave bin Laden
permission to detonate a nuke in a major American city. Enough
What has set off the latest round of breast-beating and begging for
Islamic forgiveness? Allegedly, the Quran was urinated on, or placed
on a toilet or something. Newsweek couldn’t wait to report this
non-story knowing it would trigger anti-American riots and give the
Islamic propaganda machine fodder for weeks to come. In fact, if
Islam has any pattern, people will die because of these still unproven
allegations. Once again, the sins of Islamists will be on the back
page as we Americans scramble to be forgiven by Islam.
Look for more kidnappings that will be followed by the obligatory
beheadings of innocent people so that “Islamic honor” can be restored.
As we have all learned, only the death of someone not even remotely
involved in whatever it is Islamists are enraged about, restores Islam’s
“honor.” These beheadings will be video taped and gleefully
shown on Al Jazeera every five minutes. In fact, four Afghani men
have already died because of that report. Good job, Newsweek.
has happened to this country? Four months after the attack on Pearl
Harbor, Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle and his raiders launched an attack on
. That raid had one purpose and one purpose only: To humiliate
the Japanese and let them clearly know they had picked a fight with the
wrong dog. Did Franklin Delano Roosevelt “apologize” for the
attack? Of course not! He approved the raid.
On December 7, 1941, 2,403 men died at

presumed dead for a total of 2,996 on American soil.
was at least a military target. The
Now we are at war again. This time with an enemy that has no
borders, no country, no government, and no recognizable army. Islam
is an enemy that does not hesitate to kill innocent civilians. In
fact, Islam prefers civilians because it fears our military. It’s
much cheaper and easier to kill a child than a Marine.
Islam was not outraged as Saddam Hussain slaughtered his people.
Islam was not outraged as the Taliban executed women for any number of
imagined sins. Islam is silent as
stones 13-year-old girls to death.
Islam is not outraged as thousands of young women die at the hands of
their own families in brutal honor killings. Islam says nothing as
its terrorist heroes butcher Iraqi Muslims on a daily basis.
What does it take to make a Muslim angry? Say something bad about
Islam and you can lose your head. Drop the Quran in the dirt and you
will be hanged. In
, a hapless man named Mohamed Taha Mohamed Ahmed, dared speculate that
Mohammed was not the son of Abdullah and is now on trial for blasphemy and
he will probably be hanged. Mobs of foaming-at-the-mouth Muslims
gather outside the courthouse demanding he be torn to bits for even
thinking such a thing.
Put women’s underwear on a Muslim prisoner’s head and Islamists lose
total control and riot in the streets outraged at the barbaric treatment
of their “soldiers.” Islamic terrorists do not uphold a
single word of the Geneva Convention. They beat, torture, and behead
our prisoners, many of whom are not even soldiers. They desecrate
bodies by burning them and hanging them from bridges, but touch that Quran
and Islam loses its collective mind.
We are apologizing to these people?
