In his foreword to Peter Feaman’s new book, “The Next Nightmare: How Political Correctness
Will Destroy America,” Allen West displays his own succinct understanding of Islam:
“In service to my country, I have fought, first hand, the ideology of Islamic totalitarianism,” West writes, “and while all Muslims are not Islamic totalitarians in the same way that all Germans were not Nazis in the 1930s and ’40s, we cannot let political correctness blind us to certain realities: namely, that there is a percentage of Muslims, both in the United States and abroad, who actively seek the destruction of America.”
Would that the American president had the courage to say such, but that’s another discussion.
What we now know is that, yes, an unknown percentage wishes us harm, but fortunately, there are men like West and Feaman who aren’t afraid to say so. Peter Feaman is to be applauded for putting himself out there to warn his fellow citizens about the raging political correctness that has weakened the nation at least as much as the election of Barack Obama.
(It would also be easy to say that it is Feaman’s succinctness – the book is only 122 quick pages long – that is his greatest achievement, but in fact I believe it to be the power of his words, with which he doesn’t waste time explaining the ghastly dangers lurking if we don’t wake up.)
Early on, Feaman hits the nail on the head by telling us something too many of us didn’t know: “This book is a plea to all Americans of all religions and backgrounds reminding them that the fight has not ended [with the death of Osama Bin Laden] and informing them that the fight did not begin when most Americans thought it did.”
He also writes that “there is a monster on the loose” that the press, president, and largely, Congress, will not address. Feaman then makes a fascinating point, naming a whole host of countries where people are being murdered in the name of Allah: Kenya, Malaysia, Bosnia – this is truly a global jihad.
He provides thoughtful analysis. For example, after posting a headline from 2008: “Hamas Cleric Predicts Rome Will Be Conquered by Islam,” Feaman reasons that this same Palestinian terror entity is linked to the Palestinian Authority, and Barack Obama bullies Israel into negotiating with such deviants.
Worse, he worked with Hamas’ parent organization the Muslim Brotherhood and eventually ended up helping them into power and then inviting them to the White House.
Feaman also describes such groups as the Muslim Student Association, which supports and funds Islamic supremacists in the United States. He makes it clear that these groups use American tolerance against the very country that has given it freedom to operate. He rightly calls it “America’s Trojan Horse.”
In this era, we are in the fight of our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren, who we hope and pray will not have to face Muslim hordes at the gates of Vienna (or the Vatican).
Let’s also hope that despite all of West’s rhetoric, his votes for the Patriot Act and NDAA (indefinite detention) aren’t used to abuse our children and grandchildren.
