Freedom vs. Islamism

Thursday, January 27, 2005
Leftists believe that Islamic terrorism is a reaction to U.S. policies in the Middle East. But the reality is that the terrorists are at war with freedom and democracy. But don't take my word for it. Here's Abu Zarqawi in his own words:

"We have declared a fierce war on this evil principle of democracy and those who follow this wrong ideology."

The war on terrorism is a struggle that pits a fascist brand of Islam against the civilized world. Indeed, the survival of enlightenment values depends on our victory in this struggle.

The Islamo-fascists understand the threat that democracy -- particularly the kind taking place in Iraq -- poses to their barbaric and medieval aspirations, and so they are doing everything in their power to prevent freedom from putting down roots in the Middle East.

Whatever my misgivings with the war -- and I have many -- I stand wholeheartedly behind America in its battle with the Islamist Mafia.

Simply put, we cannot let them to succeed.
