As recounted at Jihad Watch, Diana West, in West: Don't let them terrorize our freedoms, has once again spoken truth to the Islamic ideology of world domination. Using terrorism, the threat of terrorist attacks, and our own legal system, Islamists are attacking our very freedoms by trying to shut us up and intimidate us into "censoring" ourselves. Diana West delineates the tactics used against us. Also, please see Robert Spencer's speech at the Young America's Foundation. Just a few words from West's column:
At this point, I interrupt this column to apologize to all leftists settling in for a juicy tirade against the Patriot Act, wiretaps for terrorists or the sufferings of sensitive poets in residence at Guantanamo Bay. It is not the Bush administration's efforts to protect us from "terror" (more maturely known as jihad) that compromise our freedoms, but jihad itself. And the basic freedom to discuss, analyze, debate, imagine and resist jihad is now under unprecedented assault. Consider the following events...Let me add also that "hate-speech" laws are designed to intimidate and crush our Freedom of Speech. We must fight these laws every step of the way. Remember, this is a jihad, a "holy war", against Christianity and the Western World, Islam's ruthless global war against Christianity. You can call the war whatever you like but make no mistake, this so-called "war on terror" is the result of a full-frontal Islamic attack against Christianity.
