Islam is hardly a nascent threat or a recently misunderstood ideology needlessly slandered by Western bigots, but rather the Koran is an unapologetic diatribe of hate and brutality that has neither evolved or been held accountable for 1500 years of murder, misogyny and unending tyranny. If you have to preface news of every terrorist attack with accusations of xenophobia, you’re the problem. The victims aren’t the ones who refuse to coexist. How many candlelit vigils must the civilized world hold before prudent action prevents this senseless loss of life? The time has come to demand a global reformation of Islam’s most hateful teachings and violent practices, to close all militant Mosques, to thoroughly vet all Islamic immigrants/workers/students – including possibly radicalized second and third generation citizens – and to develop a comprehensive international database of shared intelligence to better identify terrorist activity and high risk individuals. To continually live in denial is to condone death by appeasement.
