Who Will Keep More Teenage Muslims from Becoming the Next Boston Marathon Bombers

Professor Barry Rubin, writing at Pajamas Media, describes in pitch-perfect fashion how the only way to truly confront radical Islamism is to do so from within Islam – a movement that Rubin says he just doesn’t see. Other Western reactions either tend to make things worse, understate or, worse, excuse the problem, or undermine themselves.

Part of the problem is this. Most powerful institutions and people say that Islam is a religion of peace. There’s no problem, except for a few mysterious extremists who just seem to pop up either at random or due to American and Western sins. The next largest segment says that Islam is an inherently violent and extremist religion. Thus, since the problem is Islam, there’s nothing to do but to combat it directly in some form. Both of the main Western responses, then, deny the importance of waging a real and serious battle within Islam.

    I drove taxi for about 20 years and the taxi business everywhere is about 90% islamist, just think, they can drive their cabs up to the airport without being searched, coming to your airport soon.

    Muslims kill Muslims,and Muslims also kill infidels.
    In two years more Arab Muslims were killed in Syria than all the Arabs killed in the one hundred year Israeli Arab conflic. In the same two years twice as many Syrian refugees were dumped on the region, than all the Palestinian refugees combined.
    Egyptians are now killing Egyptians, and look at Yemen, Somalia, mali; wherever there are Muslims, they kill one another, and whoever else they can find. The Middle East does not have a problem due to Israel, it is due to Islam, Israel was a diversion until the Muslims discovered that Israel fights back, unlike their own civilians.
    Facts on the ground simply are in support of words in the Quran; read the Quran and you’ll understand.

    A religion that has a goal to eliminate Jews and Christians is not a religion of peace. Enough of the political correctness BS

    Dear Rabbi Eckstein:

    The Website above is name PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH and it is published in Israel by a wonderful man named ITAMAR MARCUS.

    His daily report is made up of clippings taken from Palestinian newspapers… which runs stories about Palestinian murderous attacks on Jews.

    Each time there is an attack on Jews, the Palestinian press runs articles urging the population to rejoice and to dedicate a square or a monument in honor of the assassins.

    How can we get “Palestinian Media Watch” to a wider audience?

    It should now be clear that Islam is NOT a religion of peace.See how mostly all Islamic nations treat their woman, and do treat other religions. Check the information of the Dutch Mr. Geert Wilders
