Last week I wrote "It's Hard To See With Your Eyes Closed" about how Islam itself is the problem that the Western world is facing - not 'fanatical' or 'extremist' Islam - just plain ole' Islam... that the more religious a Muslim becomes, the more problematic he is.
When I wrote that article, I used for an example the Muslims who murdered Lee Rigby, the young British soldier (and father/husband/son/friend). I also used the Muslim who attacked a French soldier in Paris. And of course the Boston Bombers (sounds like a baseball team, doesn't it?)
It was silly, of course, to forget to include our "workplace violence" incident at Fort Hood. Major Nidal Hasan, who murdered 13 of his fellow American soldiers while announcing "Allahu Akbar" back in November of 2009. He will be representing himself soon at his trial. Jury selection started today. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about how his god is so great.
It was also very neglectful of me to also forget to mention the VIA Rail plot that was stymied by the RCMP here in Canada. The brilliant idea of attacking a passenger train near Toronto was cooked up by two 'religiously strict' Muslims.
This also isn't the first time we have seen Muslims in Canada becoming religious and consequently terrorists.

We find example after example of the same pattern. As a Muslim becomes more religious he becomes more of a threat to the general "infidel" society. While it should be easy to spot this pattern as it happens all over the world - in liberal Europe, multicultural Canada and in the freedom loving United States - we know that it is extremely hard to see with your eyes closed. What? You don't see anything?
