Yet again this year, Armistice Day comes amid bloody jihad attacks and attempts at further mass-murder. The letter-bomb plot against Chicago synagogues was yet another reminder, in a public debate dominated by deception and wishful thinking, that the jihad against the U.S. is far from over.
Because it is theologically based, and not ultimately dependent upon the change of certain policies or the ending of certain hegemonies, this is a war without end. It is a problem that cannot be solved. But it can be managed, and the jihadists and Islamic supremacists contained, if we can summon the will to do so.
In the U.S. today, Constitutional law, including the non-establishment of religion and the freedom of religion, is being assailed today by increasingly assertive global forces, both non-violent and violent. The mainstream media, government, and law enforcement, deathly afraid of spurious charges of "bigotry" and "Islamophobia," lie about and obfuscate the motive of every new jihad attack and plot. However, in the past year we have seen more and more Americans begin waking up to the Muslim Brotherhood's "stealth jihad" to eliminate and destroy Western civilization "from within, sabotaging its miserable house."
And so as long as free people still draw air, there is hope.
Today, then, we should remember and be grateful to those who gave their lives to secure and protect these freedoms for us -- as if our gratitude could ever be sufficient or adequate. We should ponder the fact that they had to give their lives in order to secure these freedoms. We should remember that if we are not willing to give our own lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor to protect the unalienable rights enumerated at the founding of this Republic, we will most assuredly lose both them and the Republic itself -- lose them for ourselves and for our children.
Let us never shrink from the task before us: the great struggle to defend human rights, human dignity, and freedom from oppression and injustice -- particularly the oppression and injustice, and assaults to human dignity that are enshrined in the Sharia that is coming, step-by-step, steadily and apparently inexorably, to a still largely ignorant and indifferent West.
Happy Veterans' Day.
