Needing To Wake Up,
West Just Closes Its Eyes

By Mark Steyn - February 26, 2006 - Sun-Times Columnist
Two years ago, a 23-year-old Paris disc jockey called Sebastien Selam was heading off to work from his parents' apartment when he was jumped in the parking garage by his Muslim neighbor Adel. Selam's throat was slit twice, to the point of near-decapitation; his face was ripped off with a fork; and his eyes were gouged out. Adel climbed the stairs of the apartment house dripping blood and yelling, "I have killed my Jew. I will go to heaven."

This is the first of two articles from this days headlines that explore the forces of a worldwide movement that Americans have got to understand. That movement is called by some islamofascism. George Bush refers to it as "terrorism", maintaining his strategy of NOT using any reference to islam within his criticism of the movement. He is trying to separate the war against it from references to the religion that drives it, as he thinks we are better off not having the religious war the islamofascists want.

Steyn closes his article by tying together the reality that the recent "cartoon" campaign has resulted in liberals all over the world giving in to the islamofascists (by censoring what we say) with the islamofascists growing demand that we abandon the fight for Israel. Interesting juxtoposition. Probably right. It does seem more and more that liberals in America are willing to give up any fight for freedom as long as they get one world government of some sort. I personally do not see the "caliphate" as a government that I can accept to live under. Why do democrats?
