Letter To The Editor: A Moslem Fifth Column Worldwide?

 Letter to the Editor: A Moslem Fifth Column Worldwide?

I hope I am wrong but the behavior of the vast majority of Moslems living in non-Arab countries leads me to believe that most offer tacit support to international terrorism and an indeterminate number are more active in supporting terrorism. Since 2001, only Moslems have been involved in the most significant examples of international terrorism, including: the 9/11 Twin Towers and Pentagon attacks and home-grown Arab American terror groups subsequently arrested in the U.S., or those who participated in the Spanish commuter train, Fijian night club, and London City bombings, the daytime murder of a Danish filmmaker, and now the 17 accused of plotting terror attacks in Canada.

I remember watching on TV the unfettered joy of tens of thousands of
Moslems in the Gaza Strip and the rest of the Arab world dancing and sharing tea and candy in the streets when they received news off of the destruction of buildings and murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11. In a recent poll, 79% of Pakistanis saw themselves as "Muslim first" and only 7% saw themselves as "Pakistanis first." Based upon the international Arab country nationalities of Moslem terrorists in Jordan, Israel, Iraq, Lebanon, Europe, Canada, and the U.S., and elsewhere, and the financial and training support offered them by Iran and Syria for many years, I can't help but wondering and worrying about what similar surveys of Moslems outside Pakistan might disclose.

I also recall the two Arab Israeli teenage girls riding an Israeli bus several years ago who were approached by an Arab man. He warned them that "something bad was about to happen." He urged them to get off the bus. They did. They warned no one of their encounter. The man was a suicide bomber and over a dozen innocent men, women and children on their way to work and school were murdered. What did all these and other Moslem-originated terrorist acts have in common? Moslems sought to indiscriminately murder non-Moslems.

Why do I use the term "murder" instead of "killing?" My Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary (2003) defines murder as "to kill or slaughter inhumanly or barbarously." 9/11 and the Madrid train bombings were examples of slaughter; sawing or chopping off heads of American and other civilian and military captives with rusty saws and swords or other forms of physical torture is barbarous to most Westerners. what accounts for this "Moslem first" mentality? Even to a casual reader of the Koran, it's striking how strongly Islam emphasizes the differences between the "believer" and the "infidel." From the 7th century on, elaborate legal and social codes of behavior were devised to emphasize the superiority of Islam in every encounter between Muslim and non-Muslim.

For instance, before the automobile, a non-Muslim could never be higher than a Muslim. So a non-Muslim rider on a horse approaching a Muslim on foot would have to first dismount before greeting the Muslim. Equally important, the duty of Jihad was impressed on Muslims whenever Islamic control was threatened.

Before we focus on preventing illegal Hispanic migrants into the U.S. we might be well advised to immediately take a closer look at the large and growing Moslem 5th Column in the U.S. and other first world countries and, indeed, throughout the non-Arab world. The need for prompt action is underscored by a recent BBC docudrama of a handful of Arab males who plan and execute a successful but thankfully fictional dirty atomic bomb attack on London. In this fictionalized account, an Arab woman informs the police of her suspicions about some of her newly arrived Arab neighbors. Scotland Yard is able to stop one explosion but not a second. An Arab British police translator reminds her non-Arab British superior that it is only a "small minority" that was responsible for this bombing. Unfortunately, it only took a half dozen or so to construct a weapon of mass destruction and only two in a rental van to set off one dirty bomb in downtown London causing the death and injury of thousands of innocent civilians.

Given the absence of any warning about actual terror attacks in the past by a close-knit Arab community of expatriates worldwide and the nearly uniform hatred espoused against non-believers and the West by Arab leaders, in Arab classrooms, and the Arab media, one must wonder as to whether the fictional BBC movie "warning" reflects the true beliefs and actual behavior of real Moslems. If not, something must be done and soon with terror-supporting states such as Iran who seek to develop nuclear weapons or those who would sell Moslem terrorists nuclear weapons or delivery systems such as North Korea.
