Ground Zero: Fault Line Between Islam and the West

Andrew McCarthy’s article in the New York Post on Thursday presented a scathingly concise analysis of the political and cultural chasm dividing the American progressive elite and the overwhelming majority of American citizens. And the epicenter of this seismic rip is targeted at Ground Zero where the convulsing controversy over the proposed mosque has galvanized grassroots resistance.

For the better part of two decades, Americans have been murdered by Islamists and then lectured that they are to blame for what has befallen them. We have been instructed in the need for special sensitivity to the unceasing demands of Islamic culture and falsely accused of intolerance by the people who wrote the book on intolerance.

Americans have sacrificed blood and bottomless treasure for Islamic peoples who despise Americans and despise us even more as our sacrifices and gestures of self-loathing intensify. Americans have watched as apologists for terrorists and sharia were made the face of an American Muslim community that we were simultaneously assured was the very picture of pro-American moderation.

It is embarrassingly obvious that while some of us have been working to defeat Islamism in our midst, our elites are of the incorrigibly progressive mindset that counsels accommodating them — in the delusion that they will be appeased rather than encouraged to become more aggressive.

That is precisely the mindset that makes an Islamist think:  Maybe now is the time for a $100 million mosque at Ground Zero.

Andrew McCarthy is a National Review Institute Senior Fellow and author of the book, The Grand Jihad.

    I honestly do not understand how one can appease an enemy. An enemy is something to be beaten, not put in the corner until it behaves.

    Seriously, you know that God is not a liberal because if He was He would not have vanquished Satan to Hell. No, He would have said: “Now, now, Satan, lets talk this through…how are you feeling?”

    • You’re right. Progressives treat these fanatics like naive little children that just need our patience and understanding in order to grow up and be good little citizens. They don’t want to face the obvious: these folks have mindsets stuck in the pre-middle ages. That’s why it’s nothing to them to hack off a man’s head or hack off a woman’s ears and nose all for the sake of their ‘faith’. Brutality coupled with religious fanaticism, that’s what we’re up against. And the progressives better wake up.
