"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Deroy Murdock on Cartoon Jihad on National Review Online - Inkquisition\Inquisition

Deroy Murdock on Cartoon Jihad on National Review Online

Deroy Murdock asks a very good question and one that I have wondered for a while now: "Where are the Mature Moderate Muslims?"

I don't know the answer to that but they need to begin standing up unless they want to be overrun themselves one day. If the West is knocked out of the picture (not gonna happen, but I'm not always that confident with that state of political rhetoric), it will be them and the extremists.


"This all sounds like a giant anti-Islamic tall tale concocted and disseminated by some secret cabal determined to undermine the pristine reputation of the Religion of Peace. But no. As if with titanium rods in concrete, these little horrors have reinforced every stereotype of Islamic hot-headedness. They have confirmed lingering suspicions that a disturbingly large proportion of Muslims just cannot express themselves with words rather than things that burn or go “boom.”'

I personally am beginning to step into a somewhat crazy paranoia. Iran, al Qaeda, extremist imams...it is all tied together in some twisted hope of truly jump starting that which they have worked so many years for. I do jokingly refer to it as the Inkquisition, but the inflaming of these minds isn't not going to go anywhere.
