| Martyrs to “Tolerance” - The West needs tough policing to stop Muslim terror
| Tuesday, December 19, 2017
|The London Bridge Massacre, the Manchester Massacre, the Bataclan
Massacre, the Boston Marathon Massacre: how long does the list have to
be before Western authorities understand that only the most vigorous
methods can stop the virulent metastasis of Islamist murder through
Governments exist to keep citizens safe in their streets
and cities from foreign or domestic violence. Of late, they have
emphatically not earned their wages. Here’s what they need to do right
now to regain their legitimacy.
Start by naming the enemy, as Donald Trump
May finally have done, after eight years of Barack Obama’s dereliction
of duty for refusing to utter the simple words, “Islamist terrorism.” As
numerous pundits—notably Andrew C. McCarthy, successful prosecutor of
the 1993 Islamist World Trade Center bombers—have explained, Islamism, a
large subcategory of Islam, is not only a religion but also a political
ideology that aims at world domination, so that treating it as if, like
Christianity or Judaism, it preaches only individual salvation or
virtue is mistaken at best, willfully blind at worst.
Islamists believe that sharia—Islamic law—overrides and
cancels all earthly law.
While some Islamists want to establish Allah’s
reign by violent jihad, as in the recent atrocities, others want to
expand its empire nonviolently but inexorably, by subsuming more and
more matters under the jurisdiction of Islamic courts wherever Muslims
dominate, as has happened in some localities in Britain. But of course
Islam’s religio-juridical code is a far cry from our own nation’s belief
about the Creator’s relation to government: that He has endowed us with
inalienable rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of our
individual happiness, however we choose to define it. Sharia courts
dispense a medieval justice that makes women subservient to men, that
kills homosexuals, and that doesn’t shrink from cutting off hands and
Britain’s sharia courts reportedly send abused wives back to
their violent husbands, and sanction not only a man’s rape of his
estranged wife but even “honor” killings in a variety of circumstances.
Even the nonviolent version of Islamism is incompatible with our idea of
the rule of law or of individual rights—which it scorns. As for the
violent variety, in 2011, 8 percent of all American Muslims surveyed
told Pew Research that suicide bombings are justified (compared with 26
percent of young American Muslims in 2006, 35 percent in Britain, and 42 percent in France).
