First, my heart goes out to that brave Jordanian pilot and his family. I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a son, brother, father or friend to such a barbaric and horrific murder and I can’t imagine myself acting as bravely as that pilot acted in his last moments, knowing what was coming. I consider him a hero and if I were Jordanian, I would be both proud and angry.
On the other hand, before the news of the pilot’s death broke, too many Jordanians were protesting their countries limited involvement in fighting ISIS because they don’t see this as their war. This, I think, is the biggest problem we face today because the West continues to tiptoe around and avoid the words “Islam” and “Muslim” while this sick form of Islam continues to grow in and even overthrow the governments of Muslim nations; yet this isn’t their war? Why isn’t it their war?
They probably don’t see it as their war because those on the left, who fear Christian conservatives more than terrorists for some reason, have suddenly become advocates of freedom of religion and no separation between church and state when it comes to these radical Islamists who want impose Sharia Law upon the entire world. I understand the fact that not all Muslims are like this but if they aren’t, this is their war, not mine.
Perhaps we will be forced to equate the religion of Islam to Nazism if we hope to avoid global catastrophe or global Sharia Law but that can only happen if Muslims like those in Jordan decide to do nothing rather than taking their “peaceful” religion back by stomping out ISIS and other detestable Islamic terrorists. Unfortunately there isn’t much hope of that because the leftists around the world are bent on open borders, government welfare in exchange for votes and refuse to expect assimilation of cultures.
God help us all if the Muslim nations don’t do what it takes to strike this disease of religion down now, If it isn’t a Muslim nations war, who will stop this sickness from spreading?
