Al-Qaida has put a hit list of prominent Americans on one of its websites along with an exhortation to Islamists around the world to target and murder them. The hit list contains the names of 40 individuals, 26 with photographs attached. They include businessmen, diplomats, think tank executives, military officials, government leaders and members of the media. There is also a call to add home addresses to the site so that bombs can be mailed as one method of trying to murder them.
There can be no doubt by now that Islamists have brought their war against America to the American homeland and that Americans are in danger of being maimed or killed wherever they are in the U.S. – New York, Portland, Little Rock, Detroit, Washington, Fort Hood, on an airplane, in an office building, in a public square, walking down the street, in a stadium, in their own home, anywhere. America is under attack and the hit list and exhortation is just the latest manifestation of this. American men women and children can be blown up or shot anytime, anywhere by Islamists, homegrown or otherwise. This has been the situation for some time now and it has been getting progressively worse, not better.
The war against America extends beyond maiming and killing Americans of course. American values, principles and institutions are under attack by Islamists all over the country as well. Everywhere one looks Islamists are attempting to change things to conform to Islam’s dictates and imperatives, dictates and imperatives which are fundamentally at odds with everything America stands for. They are trying to undermine, erode and eventually eliminate the American way of life and have had some degree of success. Freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, freedom of conscience, freedom of movement and the rule of law, among other things, are all being seriously threatened and effectively no longer exist for many people. It cannot be denied that Islamization has taken root in the U.S. and is expanding day by day. Its deleterious effects cannot be denied either.
Hit lists. Murder. Mayhem. Disappearing freedom. Islamization. Americans better wake up and vigorously combat the Islamic menace in their midst while they still can, while American freedom, democracy, secularism and pluralism still exist. If they don’t they’ll get out of bed one morning and find out that they are living in an Islamic country.
