Kill Political Correctness Before It Kills Us


It is entirely possible that the binding and throat-slashing of an entire Christian family in Jersey City was a ritual murder by American jihadists against someone who dared to express an opinion about the Koran unacceptable to home-grown Islamic cell-operatives here in New Jersey.

Hossan Armanious, a Coptic Christian, was threatened by participants in an Internet chat room that if he continued to speak against Islamic practices: “We will hunt you down like a chicken and kill you.”

Unlike other communities, the tight-knit Islamic neighborhood in New Jersey will probably not cough-up the perpetrators, so the police will have to embark on a comprehensive search within the community to find the murderers.

If the past is any guide, groups such as the A.C.L.U., Human Rights Watch, and the Center for Constitutional Rights will attempt to thwart these necessary police efforts by claiming they constitutes “racial profiling” and “group harassment.”

At every step in our battle against jihadist terrorism, these self-proclaimed “humanitarian” groups have done everything possible to block our efforts at protecting ourselves by railing against the Patriot Act and the war in Iraq; calling for the court-martial of our soldiers on the ground and charging them as war criminals; setting up legal barriers to our interrogation of terrorist detainees in Guantanamo Bay; and even equating the present Iraqi administration with Saddam Hussein.

These organizations have been partially successful – even intimidating the Bush administration – because of our fear of being labeled “racist” or “indifferent to international and constitutional laws.” Their accusations are false and based entirely on interpretations they invent to stymie our anti-terrorism efforts.

These non-governmental, unelected organizations are making it impossible for law enforcement to uncover the murderous schemes the jihadists have planned against our citizenry. The upshot is that a handful of self-appointed moral policemen are now controlling the destiny of 300 million Americans and putting us at greater danger.

One of the grand themes of the Bible is that of preserving life – “Therefore Shall Ye Choose Life.” “Choosing” life commends to the individual and society that significant measures be taken to protect the citizenry. The measures used by our law enforcement and military personnel all fall well within the standards allowed under the rubric of self-defense and protection of life. But thanks to of our timidity and lack of understanding of concrete verities, our society has allowed itself to be brainwashed into believing that “sensitivity” is a greater imperative than protecting life – even our own life.

Fanaticism arises when one is so attached to one point as to be blind and indifferent to other countervailing needs and concerns. When will we, the American people, put a stop to this madness of political correctness that values inane liberal ideology over the physical survival of ourselves and our children?

Who are these people that we need to listen to them? What motivates these self-important, upper middle class, better-than-thou fanatics? It certainly is not a deeper attachment to compassion, given their ruthlessly non-compassionate drive to punish as a war criminal a frightened U.S. soldier who in self-defense shoots a Najaf terrorist probably playing possum. The “understanding of the mitigating circumstances” they always demand for hard-core criminals and terrorists is not offered to embattled U.S. soldiers on the battlefields of hell.

It certainly is not rooted in a greater regard for international law in light of their silence regarding the Castro atrocities and those endemic to Muslim societies. Who can give credence to “legal” judgments that in the same press release juxtapose the non-approved antics of a few individuals at Abu Ghraib with the prolonged, deliberate wholesale torture and ethnic cleansing of 70,000 at Darfur?

Too many Jews join in the herd sport of anti-Semitism, now permitted to them as anti-Israelism.

No doubt, it’s hard for people to give up their lifelong attachments and identity. But there are moments in history when a turning point arrives, and those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize it. Many Jews have made political liberalism their religion and personal identity and the Democrat Party their unexamined home and comfort zone. But everything changed early September.

Such is the inevitability when “activists” become so wrapped up in a cause that political ideology and sloganeering subsume their very identity.

At every step in our battle against jihadist terrorism, these self-proclaimed “humanitarian” groups have done everything possible to block our efforts at protecting ourselves by railing against the Patriot Act and the war in Iraq.

Secular Jews never thought a confrontation over the Temple site was worth it. Religious Jews felt that the sheer sacredness of the place rendered it off-limits.
