Clear and Present Danger


According to Wikipedia, "In Schenck v. United States, [Oliver Wendall Holmes] famously declared that the First Amendment would not protect a person 'falsely shouting fire in a theatre and causing a panic.'"

This concept applies not only to freedom of speech, it applies to all our freedoms. The cherished choice that is freedom of religion is being assailed nowadays by a group who claims this freedom for themselves while denying it to others.

Just in case you don't know who I'm talking about, I'm talking about Muslims. I'm talking about the Muslims who follow the Quran religiously (pardon my pun), the ones who know that the mild, peaceful verses, the verses that talk about love,  have all been superseded by later verses, by Jihad and hatred, by Sharia law and desire for world domination.

For those of us who have studied history, this isn't surprising. Muhammed, who wrote the Quran (yes, the entire Quran, not just portions of it), had hoped, nay, had expected, that once he created his new little religion Jews would join him en masse. But he, like Martin Luther after him, didn't realize that Jews are not looking for another religion -- we have the one G-d started. We have the "real thing", not some person's idea of faith or lifestyle. We don't need an intermediary, we know we can speak directly to G-d.

When we didn't come running to Muhammed's new belief system, by the way, Muhammed  turned on us and became one of the most virulent anti-Semites (that's hater of Jews) in history.

This is the reason that it behooves us to fight the Islamization of our society. We need to keep our ears open not for what the Muslim leaders tell us in English. We need to check out places like Camera (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) and Honest Reporting and not The New York or LA Times. We need to be vigilant if we want to preserve what John Adams and George Washington, Ben Franklin and Stephen Hopkins, Samuel Adams and John Hancock fought long and hard to give to us. And if we forget that, we have only ourselves to blame.
