If you are an American Infidel, Political Islam wants to kill you, subjugate you or convert you to Islam. Theses commands are as plain as day in the Islamic scriptures. And carried out, as reflected in the 20,000-plus acts of Islamic terrorism, just since 9/11 alone. Fortunately a great many American Muslims do not follow the Quran and they don't understand it. But then there are those who do. As the late Christopher Hitchens once remarked, "If god truly did write the Quran, then clearly he must have been having a bad day."
My grandfather, a member of the Flying Tigers, was shot down by enemy fire three times during WWII. As a young man, he was shipped off to places he could barely pronounce, and he did so willingly because he knew his country needed him. He did not stop to question whether or not he was becoming "too obsessed with negativity" or to consider how taking on this responsibility, to protect his country from tyranny, might inconvenience his lifestyle.
Tragically, such courage and clarity is uncommon among most Americans today. And to compound matters even worse, most Americans still do not realize we are at war with Political Islam, and they don't want to hear about it either. For those of us who do know, it is our responsibility to help inform the rest of the country about what they cannot or will not see. We can't give up.
