Islam Is Evil. Pure Evil.
Hundreds of innocent worshippers all over Sri Lanka were murdered at their Easter services, by massive bombs placed among the pews at their churches. The death toll is hundreds, and climbing.
This is your “peaceful” religion. This is heartbreaking. This is what should inspire justified outrage among Christians and Jews everywhere.
…but I find myself in sympathy with a particular group of Muslims, whose culture is facing extinction. Over the last year, I have been reading in the Wall Street Journal about how China is closely observing all its people, placing cameras equipped with cutting-edge facial-recognition software, wherever the people are. China is building a ubiquitous “social credit” system for ALL its people, where they are continually observed at every activity, work and play, and judged for worthiness. Those deemed unworthy are denied jobs, the ability to travel, and other benefits of life. This horrifies me.
But the group who has been feeling these effects the most are the Uighurs, a Muslim group that lives in Western China’s Xinjiang Province. The Communist Han Chinese government deeply fears these Muslims, and thinks of them as terrorists. So many Uighurs have been literally placed in concentration camps; removed from their homes and detained against their will. Their mosques that haven’t been torn down, have been abandoned, and they are not permitted to communicate with friends or family outside (and even inside) China. The malevolent Chinese Communists call these camps “vocational education centers“. Ha! Uighur neighborhoods are still and silent, and the people left there are afraid to worship, or venture very far from home.
The Communist Chinese are pretty good at this sort of thing. Remember the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s? Where children turned in their parents to the authorities, and intellectuals were sent to collective farms in the countryside for “re-education”. An entire generation of Chinese was subjected to stunted development. And how about Tibet? Since being conquered by China, it has become a shadow of its former self, its people subjugated, their culture denied.
All in all, the Chinese Uighurs have actually been pretty peaceful, and not nearly as bloodthirsty as their Arab co-religionists. But the ChiComs can have NO hint of difference or rebellion inside their borders, so they ruthlessly destroy the millennium-old culture of its smaller ethnic groups. Han Chinese move into and take over the homelands of the Uighur, leaving their cities nearly unrecognizable.
I still think that Islam is Evil, but what the Chinese are doing to their Muslim minority is purely criminal, and Evil in itself. Many in the modern world think of China as the world’s biggest market for exports, or as an exotic vacation destination. Knowing what I do about how China treats its own people, I would never, ever go to China, for any reason. They should not get any Western tourist dollars, which just help perpetuate the evil. They certainly won’t be getting any of my dollars.
People seem to be getting all worked up and outraged at this poster that was displayed at a West Virginia Republican booth.
They have the right idea, in my opinion. As I recall at the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks, members of the rather-large “Somali community” in Seattle were seen rejoicing at the horror of the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York by a gang of Islamist Terrorists. None of the terrorists was Somali, but they were all Muslims.
Islam is an Evil Religion. The two Muslim women elected to congress from the states of Michigan and Minnesota have continually displayed their Muslim hatred of Israel and Jews. They belong to Evil, and the one pictured above demonstrates it every day.
On that day, worldwide Radical Islam escalated the ongoing war on the United States of America (and the rest of Western civilization), the nation that has been a beacon of hope and prosperity for over 250 years. For the past eight years, we have ignored that war, and turned our backs on Christians and Jews everywhere who have been murdered in the streets of Paris and Jerusalem, and even in their beds. And the current administration undermines the USA, freeing dozens of terrorists from Guantanamo to return to the jihad they wage against us.
We must never forget those who perished on September 11, 2001, in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. May their lives not have been in vain.
Long Live The United States of America!
And a big Thank You to Michael Ramirez, whose work honors them, and us.

Islamic State backers cheer the attack and urge more.
Evil, this is the epitome of evil.
The United Church of Christ (Congregational) in nearly the most liberal denomination of (so-called) Christianity. Yesterday, when I was driving to an appointment in Issaquah, a wealthy suburb of Seattle, I passed a Congregational Church. On its reader-board was a three-word statement. It said:
Muslims Welcome Here
I’m betting that the local mosque would never have a sign that read “Christians Welcome Here”. To Islam, Christians are infidels, to be converted or murdered.
Be careful what you ask for, Congregationalists.
