A practical overview

Maybe I should have titled this "Stating the Obvious", some things seem to be only obvious to a few.

Let me refresh everyone's memory... Terrorism is A threat, it's part of a much larger threat that most seem to ignore.

Islamic Imperialism is being promulgated by some Fascist Islamic states, who use terror as a tactic. I don't care to waste bandwidth (or my fingers) preaching to the choir, but this is my venue.

The liberal/left, here and abroad, stymie most efforts at acknowledging this threat. Political correctness and all that.

Here's the odd bit that is just plain painful to watch.

Again from Dhimmi Watch for emphasis and reference.

Dhimmitude is the status that Islamic law, the Sharia, mandates for non-Muslims, primarily Jews and Christians. Dhimmis, "protected people," are free to practice their religion in a Sharia regime, but are made subject to a number of humiliating regulations designed to enforce the Qur'an's command that they "feel themselves subdued" (Sura 9:29). This denial of equality of rights and dignity remains part of the Sharia, and, as such, is part of the law that global jihadists are laboring to impose everywhere, ultimately on the entire human race.

The dhimmi attitude of chastened subservience has entered into Western academic study of Islam, and from there into journalism, textbooks, and the popular discourse. One must not point out the depredations of jihad and dhimmitude; to do so would offend the multiculturalist ethos that prevails everywhere today.

I've been going a bit nutty trying to figure out how and/or why the liberal/left was seeming to embrace this position of servitude when it means that to survive they'll have to convert to Islam. Picture Ted Kennedy in a mosque, or John Kerry, et.al. These arrogant elitists on their knees several times a day. How could they embrace such subservience? Or the mostly Catholic illegal immigrants?

I keep asking the question and getting little in the way of answer, except that they're lunatics. I'm beginning to grasp the how; Our President and his administration have, for some reason, refused to deal with the threat realistically, or at least publicly. Most of the liberal/left elite are so insulated that they are convinced that their lifestyle is secure. There are many others who need to examine Sharia law and where they might fit, but nope!

But why do half the voting age citizens in this country (and a larger percent elsewhere) seem to feel as safe?

I'm working on it, because it seems reason has no impact on the questions.

Sort of a helpless rant, Sorry if you're offended.

Well rats... it ain't just me that's confused and concerned.

Sir Simon, along with the many other journalists and readers who share his view, is in denial. There is a serious terrorist threat to Britain — and not just Britain. India, Indonesia and Iraq suffer from it as much as the UK, the US or Spain. These terrorists are not bogeymen summoned up by politicians to distract us from the scrapes that they get into, or to seduce us into giving them more draconian powers. If more powers are needed — and that is a question for another day — it is because the threat is real.
