Atwar Bahjat and the return of the Dark Ages

When will the civilized world finally have enough of the kind of butchery that befell Atwar Bahjat? Remember, by the time they actually come for you, it's already too late.

The last time there was this kind of rampant savagery and brutality on a global scale was the Dark Ages, when the Islamic Empire was in its heyday and dhimmi (non-Muslims) were routinely beaten, tortured, raped, etc., everywhere they ruled. (And that was the just the livestock. . .) Read all about it in Paul Fregosi's uber-important book, Jihad in the West. Beheadings were as common as camel droppings in those days.

Sound familiar? Think Daniel Pearl and Nicholas Berg. And now Atwar Bahjat, intrepid Iraqi woman television journalist, to whom many other unspeakable things were done. There's a video floating around the Web of her brutal murder, but we recommend the written account. That's bad enough.

This must be stopped.

The Dark Ages came to an end with the Crusades, the Age of Exploration and the forcible expulsion of the Muslim cutthroats from France, Spain and elsewhere in Europe, ending their bloody rule. And now today the Crusades are almost criminally misrepresented to our own children in the public schools by NEA-indoctrinated teachers and textbooks. Just the truth that they were a natural response to decades, and even centuries, of unspeakable evil was the first casualty.

Yes, we are in a similar situation today. The Dark Ages are returning—if we let it. Make no mistake. We are in a fight for our civilization, whether we like it or not. It's time we join the battle. Groups like Hezbollah and al Qaeda, for starters, need to be eliminated, down to the last man. Period. They are unmitigated evil incarnate.

If this sounds radical, read the account of the slaying of Atwar Bahjat, who is just one recent example, and then decide. We may be faced with a familiar choice all over again—the Dark Ages or the Crusades.

And remember: They are coming. Let's not wait for that to happen.

I discussed this with my sister-in-law just last night, and she was disbelieving. Surely it can't be that bad?

Oh yes it can. And we're gonna sleepwalk right off the cliff if we don't wake up soon and do something about it.

Good way to put it. I think it's the job of the rest of us to wake up the sleepwalkers. -- Roscoe.

I've been hollering and stamping my feet about this for quite some time now -- been called intolerant and bigoted and narrow-minded for my trouble, too, but I do it anyway. Doesn't seem to be doing much good.

Kill them all? just apply this injunction for a minute to Christian fundamentalists for example: do you think you're ever going to stamp out each and every one of them? Where one is eliminated another rises. There is only one way - racial and religious tolerance. And the US has got to stop the greed and the interference in others' cultures and values.
