Appeaser Dies

First off let me convey my condolences to the survivors of Tom Fox in the unlikely event that they would run across this post. It saddens me that he died at the hands of evil subhuman filth, but it does not surprise me.

He belonged to an archetypal group of peaceniks called Christian Peacemaker Teams who, judging from the lit on their webpage, bend over so far to appease that they can kiss their own asses. "It is hypocritical to label Muslims as terrorists when our own countries have been the greatest perpetrators of terror and violence around the world," reads a press release setting forth CPT's position about the Jyllands-Posten cartoons. It is surprising to see an avowedly Christian group befoul the issue with such abject moral relativism, but there it is. And as they mourn Tom Fox it is only cold comfort to crack open the New Testament (Hebrews 9:22)and read "without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness of sins."

It is even less comforting to flip open that other book (Qu'ran 4:171) "O people of the book! Commit no excesses in your religion: and say nothing of God but the truth. Jesus Christ, son of Mary, was indeed an apostle of God...therefore, believe in God and his apostles, and do not say 'Three'. Desist, and it will be better for you, for indeed God is one God, exalted above having a son..."

A preponderance of events and words like this nudge me in the direction of giving up on the whole "containing Iran" concept. I am filled with dread that the Islamofascists are going to get their holy war because they will leave us with no other choice. Alan Dershowitz makes a great case for the emergence of a jurisprudence of prevention out of the current paradigm of deterrence, and one of the pillars of geopolitical containment is deterrence. Because the Soviet Union was capable of a rational cost-benefit analysis, nuclear deterrence was an option for stable co-existence.

There can be no rational cost-benefit analysis, however, if you are convinced that the costs/benefits are tallied up in the afterlife. Therefore, our enemies the Islamofascists are not amenable to deterrence and they are not otherwise accessible to negotiation. The only option is force, and no amount of Christian turning of cheeks will suffice, whether facial or gluteal.

The concept of Christianity is one of sacrafice, at its heart it is that above all else. If it was able to overcome the senselessness of Rome and it mindless torture and idol worship it should be able to overcome the insanity of Islam in these more sensitive open times . Only when the Palestinians love their children more than they hate the Jews will their be peace in Judea , only when the silent majority of nonviolent Muslims take over the religion and have a reformation will the slaughter of suicides stop. My guess, sometime around 2400 A.D. , seven to ten generations from now.
