Charlie's Soapbox: "But you can treat these lunatics with respect, even deference and it makes no difference. They will still murder your children without giving it a second thought and the only kind of diplomacy they understand comes out of the barrel of a gun.
The world may as well go ahead and face it. There is a contingent within the Muslim world, which is dedicated to nothing less than the total annihilation of every man woman and child on the face of the earth who does not see eye to eye with them.
They actually believe that if they die murdering women and children who are not of their faith they will be eternally rewarded in a male dominated heaven served by scores of young virgins forever and ever.
How anybody on earth can be gullible enough to believe that you get to heaven by being a mass murderer is beyond me but I guess that just goes to show how strong the radical Muslim clergy’s hold is on these unfortunate young people.
They’re not going to quit. There is no quit in these people. They are fanatics, and what we do other than totally destroy them is not going to make any difference.

For too long the west has been content to sit back and watch Israel deal with the terrorism problem of the radical Islamists
practically by themselves.
Times have changed, it’s the planet earth at large which is in danger, and our way of life hangs in the balance.
What it boils down to is, it’s them or us."
