A violent street gang, over the course of months, randomly fires bullets at houses in a populated residential area. For months, the city asks politely for them to stop. Over time, the mayor begins to suggest that the gang has gone too far. Eventually, the police move in and strike at the leaders, and begin to return fire on gang members who are seen firing weapons into neighborhoods. Local college students protest against the city and the police.

As the latest in my ongoing series of posts advising President-Elect Obama, I’d like to approach international issues. This may be a moot point, since Obama already has many international ties. Regardless, I’ll try to hit some high points.
I won’t bother with advising on interactions with the palestinians, since Obama has ties to the palestinians; already. Likewise, he seems to have good ties with Kenya. Heck, some think Obama was born in Kenya, including his own grandmother who says she was in the hospital at the time.
Mohammed Reza Taheriazar, a recent graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, took part in a peaceful practice of his faith on Friday by driving across the UNC campus in his SUV, running people over. The FBI has become involved in the case, as the suspect allegedly made statements concerning the United States’ treatment of muslims around the world. Presumably, he wasn’t talking about how we’ve come to the rescue of muslims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Indionesia, Iran, Turkey, and elsewhere.
This latest incident is yet another example of a muslim acting in the name of “peaceful islam” which calls for global islamic control under sharia law. This is the same “peaceful islam” which allows women in France who are seen in muslim areas without a male escort to be raped. This is the same “peaceful islam” which does not allow the free will or freedom for a person to choose their own faith, promising subjugation to non-muslims who agree to live as a second-class citizen and death to those who don’t, and death to any muslim who sees the light and becomes a non-muslim. This is the same “peaceful islam” that teaches that the jews are descendants of monkeys and pigs, and tells the lie that jews put muslim blood into pastries that are sold across Israel. This is the same “peaceful islam” that regularly murders people across the world, so regularly in fact that very few of the deaths actually make news in the United States anymore. This is the same “peaceful islam” that has proven itself more capable of killing muslims than any other group, nation, or faith that has ever existed.
There are those who believe that what happened in London is about the Iraq war. They’re wrong. The Anchoress lays this out in detail, with photos. [Caution: Vivid]
Terrorism isn’t about Iraq. Iraq is about terrorism.
