Eric Dondero - (1/14/11)
Cato, Reason, and other libertarian groups completely ignoring the Threat of Radical Islam - Foreign Policy analysts Dr. Clifford May opines over at National Review(1): “The War Against the Christians The most important story not being told”.
Imagine if Muslims in Europe were being arrested for nothing more than peacefully practicing their religion. Imagine if Muslims in South America were being sentenced to death for “insulting” Jesus. Imagine if mosques were being bombed and burned by terrorists in a growing list of Christian-majority countries.
Now here’s what you don’t need to imagine because it is all too real: In recent days, Christian churches have been bombed in Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, and the Philippines. In Indonesia a mob of 1,000 Muslims burned down two Christian churches because, according to one commentator, local Islamic authorities determined there were “too many faithful and too many prayers.” In Iran, scores of Christians have been arrested. In Pakistan, a Christian woman received the death penalty for the “crime” of insulting Islam; the governor of Punjab promised to pardon her — and was then assassinated for the “crime” of blasphemy.
I could provide dozens more examples of the persecution and, in many cases, “cleansing” of Christians in what we have come to call the Muslim world…

Cato jumped on the demise of the Soviet Union, but refuses to promote Liberty in the Middle East
Clifford May is correct in questioning the liberal media, and there serious lack of coverage of these vastly important stories. But he misses the libertarian media.
Where’s Reason on the rise of Islamo-Fascism? Where’s the Cato Institute and their daily blog? The Libertarian Party? Influential libertarian pundit sites like The Agitator, Liberty Papers, The Daily Libertarian, Nolan Chart?
Of course, numerous other left-leaning libertarian sites completely avoid the subject for obvious reasons; sites like AntiWar.com, LewRockwell.com, and many of the Ron Paul sites. To talk of the threat of Radical Islam, would bring up the uncomfortable subject of what to do about it, for these hardline non-interventionist/isolationists.
But Cato, Reason? Why are they taking a head-in-the sand approach on Islamo-Fascism? They proclaim to be consistently Pro-Liberty, but how can we have liberty if Sharia Law is being shoved down our throats?
And Cato has no leg to stand on in this regard. For, in the early 1990s, they sent an entire delegation of free market economists and policy analysts to the former Soviet Union to promote freedom-oriented policies, at considerable expense. Why aren’t they doing the same now in the Muslim world, sending libertarian scholars and policy analysists over the Middle East to promote Ayn Rand, Hayek, and other free marketeers?
LibertarianRepublican.net is virtually the only libertarian website giving coverage to the threat of Radical Islam. In fairness, Reason touches on the subject once in a great while, when it overlaps with free speech concerns such as the Danish cartoonist and South Park controversies. But that’s it.
Yes Clifford May, the liberal media is purposely avoiding coverage of Radical Muslim violence against Christians. But the libertarian media is just as absent. It just doesn’t fit the template.
1) The War Against the Christians The most important story not being told
It seems they are also on the side of Islam also.
I guess my question is, where is the rest of supposed "peaceful Islam"? Why aren't we hearing powerful condemnation of the "radical" element within the "religion of peace". The answer is obvious- they are one and the same.
Questions? Find an Islam cleric to deny it.....
Is this why Obama has permitted an entire village to be moved from Africa to the US.
I do believe it was on the post either here or over on Patriots Action. Seems there is a village full of muslims in Tennessee at present.
What next. Give them all guns to shoot the unarmed (or when Hillary un-arms all americans).
Good time to wake up and beat the hell out of your Congressmen to put laws on the books to stop OBAMA and Muslims.
I have already said that.
Look at the attached files.
Bet you did not know that Congress will not take any action against OBAMA. Cost too much, disrupts the country too bad, and cannot get it done in time to count.
As you know I have been Posting the danger of the Islamic 5th Column that has invaded America for at least the past 3 years and I'm still amazed that many people do not see or know of this threat.
I have been contacted as many of us are from the Republican Part. The Republican committee on re-election in both houses, the Young Republicans and the Young Republicans of California. To a person they did not anything about CAIR or the Saudi paid for emigration and their association with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Further compounding that, not one Talking Head, besides Glenn Beck has even mention this problem. Every post I have sent on this subject was sent to every republican member of both houses Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly**, and many others, no response except to tell me how that can't check every E-mail they receive., I believe I'm not alone in asking them Where They Are, but do date I haven’t hear of one person that has received any answer from any of them on this subject.
This frightens me, as neither those that we elect nor those that have been our Watch Dogs are either ignorant of this evil or don't care.
