And the angel of the Lord said to Hagar, “Behold, you are pregnant and shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has listened to your affliction. He shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he shall dwell over against all his kinsmen.”* (Gen 16:8-12)
Recently I made a tongue-cheek comment on Facebook about mining our southern border to discourage Islamic terrorists from coming across. I was excoriated by one reader who took the comment seriously. Another reader suggested the ‘human rights people’ would be offended. Although the comment was not serious, the more I think about it, the more I see its’ merits. Of course the ‘human rights people,’ whoever they are, would object. But they don’t realize the existential nature of the threat. Muslims are literally destroying Germany because the ‘human rights people’ don’t want to deny them access to their country. So they build Muslim ghettos, terrorize the natives by gang raping their wives and daughters, and butcher innocent people on the streets. Like the guy in Britain who was cut in pieces by a Muslim because he was wearing a military uniform. Nowadays Bobbies bring their uniforms to work and dress there just to avoid being ambushed on their way to work.
I’m afraid the ‘human rights people’ simply don’t understand the Muslim mindset. All this violence did not just suddenly come out of nowhere. And it is not caused by any injustice Muslims may have suffered at the hands of some western oppressors. It is part of their eschatology. They believe the Mahdi, or Twelfth Imam, will soon return to set up a worldwide caliphate which will be ushered in by a period of Muslim conquest. The first step in the plan is for his followers to destabilize Europe with so much violence that the nations will literally collapse. Then they will insist on Sharia law. This is already taking place in some London neighborhoods that have become Muslim ghettos. Police don’t even dare enter these parts of London. Once enough of the globe is under Sharia law, the Mahdi will appear and take control. This is why Muslim terrorists are targeting not just anyone, but everyone who is not a Muslim.
Even here in the city of Dearborn, Michigan, aka ‘Dearbornistan,’ there is a movement in the large Muslim community to instigate Sharia law. You can see citizens of this once proud and prosperous city, now forty-six percent Muslim, agitating for Sharia law on youtube.
Anyone coming across the border from Mexico without a passport is breaking the law. They are not innocent. They should be warned they are taking their lives in their own hands. Those who take the risk obviously don’t value their lives as much as they do getting into the U.S. That would include suicide bombers and other Islamic terrorists. Better to attack them at the border than let them come in and behead our loved ones and take away our freedom.
The Islamic terrorists have declared war on the rest of the world. We need to acknowledge that fact and begin to fight like it. Only this is not a conventional war. Our enemies will resort to anything to kill us, even if it means destroying themselves in the process. We will not prevail if we allow them to exploit our politically correct sensibilities to their advantage. If we do that, they will annihilate us.
