TR Clancy comments on Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s guilty plea via American Thinker:
Think of this as Islam's guilty plea.
Will we accept it?
Don't bet on it, because ten years after the worst sneak-attack on the U.S. so far in Islam's war on America, the nation's situational awareness is worse than ever.
- Most of us still stubbornly refuse to admit what we already know about Islam: that it's a violent, malevolent religion whose adherents can't stop themselves from announcing to us their intentions to make war against us until they've either killed us or made us slaves.
- Most of us still stubbornly profess our belief in a "true" Islam, peace-loving, egalitarian, more or less an Arabian version of Christianity.
- Most of us reflexively channel all blame for the daily bombings, beheadings, murders, mutilations, honor killings, and sundry other savagery committed in the name of Allah away from "true" Islam onto what we're told is a distorted, hijacked Islam embraced by only a tiny fringe.
- Most of us haven't lifted a finger since September 11, 2001 to find out if our opinions about 1, 2, and 3 have any basis in reality; we haven't read a single book, done a single Internet search, or tried reading a Qur'an.
For the past week media attention has focused on the "Occupy Wall Street" phenomenon. The commentariat justly criticize the mobs for their incoherent message. Panels debate, "Who are these people, and what do they want?"
I find no signs of such curiosity in response to what Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had to tell us. Not only did he fully answer the two questions the silly Occupiers cannot answer, but he answered them without even being asked. Too bad he was drowned out by the Occupier kid who wants free college tuition.
