Poverty Breeds Terrorism? I’m calling BS!

( – promoted by Peter Porcupine)

One of the most thrown about lines by the left is that terrorism has at its root poverty.  That the economic differences between industrialized and developing nations is what fuels the terrorists hatred of the West in general and the United States in general.  I’m calling Bull S***. 

We are not fighting an economic struggle a la class warfare.  We are fighting a religious fundamentalism that is bent on conquest of the world and the forced conversion of the masses to either Islam or living under Sharia.  We as a nation must come to terms with this or we will lose this war.  For in fact figthing terrorism is a war not a police action.

Proof of this can be seen in who the terrorists are.  The terrorists carrying out and planning attacks on the west are not country bumpkins they are highly educated and members of either the upper middle classes or upper class of Islamic society.  Case in point are the 45 Muslim doctors reported to be planning attacks in the United States.

One message read: “We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.

“The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy.” This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.

45 doctors are not lower classes involved in class warfare.  They are highly educated people looking to destroy our Western way of life. 

I would support a program by which all nationals of predominantly muslim countries in this nation were subjected to thourough background checks and were made to be “guests” of a nice resort while those background checks were made.  We are closely reaching the point of no return.  Especially in Europe where demographics point to a shift towards a majority Muslim society perhaps within our lifetimes.  It is far past time to get tough.

UPDATE:Thanks to Peter Porcupine for turning me on to the story below.  More proof from the Horses mouth.

Former jihadist Hassan Butt had this to say in the Daily Mail earlier this week.

When I was still a member of what is probably best termed the British Jihadi Network – a series of British Muslim terrorist groups linked by a single ideology – I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy.

By blaming the Government for our actions, those who pushed this “Blair’s bombs” line did our propaganda work for us.


And as with previous terror attacks, people are again saying that violence carried out by Muslims is all to do with foreign policy.

For example, on Saturday on Radio 4’s Today programme, the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, said: “What all our intelligence shows about the opinions of disaffected young Muslims is the main driving force is not Afghanistan, it is mainly Iraq.”

I left the British Jihadi Network in February 2006 because I realised that its members had simply become mindless killers. But if I were still fighting for their cause, I’d be laughing once again.

Maybe our progressive friends will believe a former Jihadist?  Before it’s too late.
