Recent media reports indicate imminent Mumbai type Jihadi attack in major cities of the world. Nowhere is the tension and fear from Jihadi attack more evident than in major cities of
Since Jihadis have an exclusive patent for terrorism, citizens are worried, fearful and scared. Jihadi terrorists could strike at any moment at any city at any time at their choice. No democratic country is safe from Islamists who are dead against democracy, modernism, coexistence, religious tolerance, and secularism. Islamists who fight against infidels and the modern civilization in the name of Islamic past fight with modern weapons of every kind against innocent people without fear, guilt, or shame.
In this context, citizens are traumatized and they are changing their behavior, life style and their hopes for a peaceful life are shattered. What can one do to feel safe again in our own country? Secular political leaders and security officials warn us against terrorist attacks. They are only dimly aware of who the people behind terrorism are, and why they are terrorizing us and the motivating ideology of these terrorists. The lack of their clarity and deliberate failure to inform the public about terrorists and their deadly ideology make us more anxious and cautious.
It is time for citizens to study the ideology behind those who terrorize us. What makes these terrorists make us tremble and unable to make us live for our dreams and on our faith? The greatest shame is that why our liberal politicians and leftist intellectuals and pro-Islamist media are silent on Jihadi terrorism. Their silence or open support for Jihadi terrorists with phony root cause theories is deceptive. Why these deceptive politicians and liberal intellectuals fail to stand up and fight for our constitution, liberty, life and values? Why are they colluding with our tormenters? Why are they not demanding that hatred from the Koran be expunged? By colluding with Jihadis and keeping silence on their deadly ideology, they put our life at risk.
It is difficult for citizens who want to live in peace to swallow Jihadi hatred and their death defying criminal acts. Our values, freedom, life as well as our civilization hang in the balance. We cannot depend on phony secularists and leftist intellectuals to save us. Their views are quite pathetic. They are not going to guide us or ready to provide us any solution. Marxist intellectuals and bogus secularists have become a tool in the hands of Islamic terrorists in advancing their political agenda and Islamo fascism in which the terrorism is perpetuated.
What One Should Do?
What one should do? Citizens are part of the solution. Despite the fact that Jihadi terrorist assault on our country, individuals are reluctant to take realistic responses. It is a paradox. People have acquired "banner blindness", "denial", apathy and indifference. After many jihadi terrorist attacks, people are habituated to terrorism. Jihadis kill innocent people; destroy our property and spread hatred and fear. But citizens have become inoculated against the terrorists. And these habituated citizens who are inoculated and who are hiding behind a thick wall of denial no longer react.
It is time for us to get out of the sand and fight the great fight. The crooks, the degenerates and bogus secularists who run away from freedom and responsibility are ripping our value system, our freedom and our future.
Commonsense suggests that citizens have the right to identify people trying to ferment violence, spread hatred and terror in our country. With unlimited petro dollars, Jihadi terrorists are gathered to oppress us, terrorize us, scare us, and impose the tyranny of Islam.
The time has come that the public should take appropriate action. Jihadis are trying to instill fear in us. If we are united and stand up, we will become more powerful and Jihadis cannot put us in psychological trauma. We can fight back with determination. A strong determines assault on Islamists will preclude them to undermine the sense of our security and disrupt our everyday life.
We cannot prevail tomorrow; live in peace and tranquility without courageous action today. If we don't meet the challenges today with strength, will power and determination, our future will be at stake. By acting today against our enemies who are willing to die for their past, we are choosing our future and the future of children and our grand children yet to be born. Let us stand together and make our country great, preserve our freedom and security.
