The dhimmification of America

Unfortunately, it seems that six years after 9/11, even President Bush still doesn't get it.

Last night, President Bush hosted iftar at the White House. That was bad enough. What he said was worse:
He said violent extremists do not represent Islam.

"They believe that by spreading chaos and violence they can frustrate the desire of Muslims to live in freedom and peace. We say to them, you don't represent Muslims, you do not represent Islam - and you will not succeed," Bush told the attendees, who included Muslim leaders and ambassadors, as well as first lady Laura Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Vice President Dick Cheney and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.
Any evidence that is true would be greatly appreciated. As evidence that it is not true, see 'Palestine' (where 'free elections' produced a Hamas 'government'), Lebanon (where Hezbullah is a major player in the government) and Iraq (which has descended into a Shiite - Sunni civil war). See also Egypt (where the Muslim brotherhood would likely win any truly free election), Saudi Arabia (which has no free elections but which exports terrorism around the world).

Do I need to go on?

If there are a significant number of moderate Muslims out there, they need to get up and start opposing violent Islam in the open. So far, the moderate Muslims seem to be few and far between, and they seem to feel the need to renounce Islam to a great extent before they can begin to fight it. 'Moderate Muslims' seems like an oxymoron.

By the way, American dhimmitude is not limited to the Bush White House. Last week, Congress voted on a politically correct resolution on how wonderful Islam is. Forty-two congressmen had the guts to vote 'present.' None had the guts to vote no. What do they fear?

I have to agree with Baron Bodissey that "A principled stand is in order." But don't hold your breath waiting for it.
