Worldwide almost all governments don’t believe there is a war going on. Baby Doc Trudeau will never believe it until his brother Sasha tells him to believe this.

The words “Islamic terrorism” can’t and won’t be said in public by most of these fools.

Poland, Hungary and Czech republic say it and closed their borders to the Islamic horde again trying to invade their lands (as they tried hundreds of years ago).

Any Western leader who states the truth is bullied into resigning, called a racist, tossed from their party or voted out ASAP. So no help there.

There is a war, and most don’t realise it. Its ideological: they hate us, they want to rule us, they want to dominate us, they want to take what we have, they want to kill us, they want us as slaves, and the planning book is called the Koran.

He was right about one thing: the “terrorists” are actually true believers. My view is that the only radicals in Islam are those who do not agree with the hatred or calls to kill and want to modernise. The rest are simply minions of Islam, called Muslims.

The hatreds run deep due to the socio-religious teaching of the faith. In Aleppo, right after they were freed from ISIS, the women began chanting for the destruction of the West and death to Jews. How nice. It was with the West that they were freed, and what did Jews have to do with their situation? Ah, the Koran tells them that this is what good Muslims must believe.

Until leaders become serious, and the Politically Correct suddenly grow intelligence and wake up, nothing will change. Hopefully, the wakeup call will come while there is still a chance. We will need to take non-Politically Correct actions as needed, otherwise in twenty years everyone still living will be saying “Allah Hu Akbar”.

It’s the same old story with islam/muslims. They constantly bombarded and tortured non muslims for centuries and the church said enough is enough and fought back. It shouldn’t have been only the church fighting islam it should have been the entire global non muslim civilization. If the entire non-muslim civilization gets together to kick their ass, this will pretty well shut the bastards down for good. I think this explains why muslims are always going after the church (being entirely peaceful) because they know they can con other non muslim people into being on their side. Once (they think because it’s never going to happen) they obliterate the church with the rest of the world, then they can wage war on all the other groups of non muslims.

An interesting perspective. Of course, at the present time we are not winning the war and are on our heels, but his point is that the mounting terrorist attacks and ISIS serve to increasingly dispel the lie that ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ and, hopefully, will wake people up to the reality.

Angola has banned islam from their country in 2013. Tore down 80 mosques. They say that islam is not a religion but a sect.

Bravo did you listen to the video?
Yup – I did

We are not winning the war

Ever been to Brussels or Leeds?

We are not even tied despite the wonderful rapid fire facts.

Words are easy – deeds are difficult.

We are way behind.

Rapid fire delivery for sure, probably because he was trying to squeeze in 40 minutes of delivery into a 20 minute constrained time frame…. But nevertheless, some excellent points made and the real “nut” of the issue is that Islam and Western Thought are fundamentally incompatible… Islam is an aggressive “cause” that thrives on conquest to keep it vital… But having no moral superiority vis-a-vis the evolution of democratic thought in the Western World, it wins a few battles through terrorism, but not the soul of Western Culture… Fundamentally, we don’t wish to be “Islam”… It’s so “7 hundreds”…

A friend of mine was digging a ditch and his boss , an arrogant SOB , started to berate him . I won’t say what he did with the shovel but he did say- " I am not a Machine".

Wow. This guy is hard to listen to. He knows the topic well but he is speed talking and presenting his points in rapid fire statements. He has to learn to slow down and expand on his points so that people can digest what he is saying. As one of my bosses once said, slow down I’m not an apple computer.

I disagree with his statement that we are winning the war. We may be able to kill of ISIS but then there will be another group to take its place. This is a war against Islam and that means defeating pretty much all of the middle east and north Africa. That simply is not going to happen until Jesus returns.

Seems hopelessly optimistic to me. Our leaders aren’t even able to identify the enemy.
commented 2016-08-26 23:45:22 -0400
I don’t know if we are yet, but I have to believe that we could and will.
commented 2016-08-26 22:43:53 -0400
Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM: 31,620 Attacks, 201,066 Killed, 281,938 Injured…. that we know of.

Bravo did you listen to the video?

Just the fact that say, The Rebel even exists, proves that the war of ideas is alive and well. I’m thankful for once that at least an optimistic point of view exists, and to be truthful, I fully expect we’ll win this war full stop, even if it seems like we’re down a few runs right now.
