Here's The Question

18 June 2004

The Middle East has a rather high concentration of terrorists, hate-mongers, extremists, Jihadists, etc. Either we agree on that point or we don’t. They understand nothing about shame, remorse, decency or civilization. This may be a small minority of the so-called peaceful Muslim community, but they must be routed.

They talk to a different God from the one I worship. Dr. Albert Mohler wrote this today:

What we believe about God determines everything really important in life. As A. W. Tozer reminded us, what we believe about God is the most important thing about us. The ultimate test we will ever face is the test of truth—do we really know God?

I’m seriously angry and ready to DO something. I’m sick of the rhetoric. I’m sick of debate about whether the Koran says this or that. I’m sick of the liberals blaming America. I’m sick of watching our towers collapse. I’m sick of seeing holes in the side of our ships. I don’t want to hear of another Marine barricks blown up by Middle Eastern zealots. I’m sick of watching kidnapped civilians murdered abroad. My anger causes me to lose sight of my own God. It turns me to the Old Testament.

There comes a time when the shrimpy little spokespeople for these foreign governments need to just shut up. I’m ready for leadership that says, ”this globe is simply too small to tolerate these so-called cells of terrorists.” Then, let’s take the political handcuffs off the military and rid this world of these thugs. I’m too agitated to think clearly, but reason doesn’t seem to be one of the options for dealing with Middle Eastern stupidity and tolerance for extremists.

The question? Will anyone do anything, or will we merely talk some more?
