Secure our borders, investigate mosques
TO THE EDITORS:
The widespread ignorance of Islam, especially among liberals, is a source of grave danger to America as it has been to liberal Europe.
But conservatives and liberals have been ignorant of the history of Islam and continue to use politically incorrect terms like "Islam is a religion of peace" and "radicals have hijacked the religion."
The historical record is clear: The religion of Islam, from its origin in the seventh century, was built, both in doctrine and numbers, through a strategy of terror from Mecca to Medina.
The Quran is filled with admonitions to "search out the infidels (Jews and Christians and all other non-Muslims) wherever they may be found and kill them."
We cannot understand the Islamic terror of 9/11, Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon without knowing what the Quran explicitly teaches.
Jihad or holy war is terror and is a strategy of true-to-theQuran Muslims.
So-called "moderate Muslims" either are ignorant of the facts (many are ignorant what is in the Quran or who Muhammad really was) or are covering the truth.
Our failure to secure our borders and a foolish liberal immigration policy have allowed terrorists to infiltrate our nation. There are more than desperate Latin Americans coming over our southern border.
I have seen the mosques in Mexico and the reports of people coming from Islamic countries through our broken borders. We have given student visas to those we now know are terrorists.
After the latest revelation of dangerous Islamic infiltration in the U.S. and tragedy in Boston, and before any further terrorist attack, the American people need to wake up and demand that we investigate the mosques and secure our borders.
We need to resist intimidation from radical Islamic groups and stand up to the liberal political incorrectness of politicians and the media.
