Someone in one of the foreign newspapers said Norway has “lost its innocence.” I’ve got news for you, sir…as long as radical Islam is on the march, no country can claim innocence any longer. It’s time to stop the P.C. crap and start fighting this war like we mean it.

It appears this may not have been related to Islamic-extremism, but perhaps a “lone wolf” type scenario. I will not apologize for my initial reaction due to all the events and actions that surrounded this tragedy, coupled with the empiric evidence out there about the majority of terrorist attacks – especially bombings. Even though officials have dismissed this possibility in part, I am still not convinced it was NOT a Nordic man who is an Islamic convert. Only time will tell.
Frequent host & guest on Fox News, attorney Peter Johnson, Jr., who was closed friends with FDNY’s Chaplain Father Michael Judge, was on Fox & Friends on Saturday. It was a mix of a eulogy for his friend, Father Judge, and a message of remembrance for all the families and friends of those who lost their lives on 9/11/01 at the hands of brutal Islamic terrorists.
Even Steve Doocy was moved, as was I, by Peter’s beautiful words of hope and prayer for all the families involved. And yes, Peter… we’ll all meet again one day, and be taken into the fold of God’s loving embrace.
Saturday morning, Fox & Friends showed a compilation and a timeline of how they reported the events that unfolded on 9/11/01, with video and commetary from field reporters, cameramen, field producers, and in-studio anchors.
A stark reminder of the tragic events as they unfolded that day, and it seems it was only yesterday.
During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of “political, economic and social forces,” but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in “religious terms.”
He repeated the administration argument that the enemy is not “terrorism,” because terrorism is a “tactic,” and not terror, because terror is a “state of mind” — though Brennan’s title, deputy national security adviser for counterterrorism and homeland security, includes the word “terrorism” in it. But then Brennan said that the word “jihad” should not be applied either.
“Nor do we describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’ or ‘Islamists’ because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community, and there is nothing holy or legitimate or Islamic about murdering innocent men, women and children,” Brennan said.
Political correctness is going to be the death of Western civilization if we are not careful. The radical Muslim community in Britain protested the homecoming celebration of British Soldiers in the city of Luton yesterday, and guess who got arrested? The people who were protesting the radical Muslims! Go figure.
