Columnist Declares War on Islam

Right-wing commentator Burt Prelutsky writes that the War on Terror is actually a War on Islam:

I no longer accept that we are only at war with Islamic fascists or Islamic fundamentalists or whatever the heck we’re calling them this week. I believe that we in the West are at war with Islam, period.

I have heard any number of politicians, up to and including President Bush, claim, contrary to all reason and evidence, that Islam is a religion of peace. If you buy that load of malarkey, I’ve got a Brooklyn mosque I’d like to sell you.

Prelutsky’s analysis is reminiscent of his comments last December that the “Jewish Grinch” was responsible for the so-called “War on Christmas.” Prelutsky wrote that “When it comes to pushing the multicultural, anti-Christian, agenda, you find Jewish judges, Jewish journalists, and the ACLU, at the forefront,” and that the problem of anti-Semitism had been “replaced by a rampant anti-Christianity.”

I am getting the idea that too many Jews won’t be happy until they pull off their own version of the Spanish Inquisition, forcing Christians to either deny their faith and convert to agnosticism or suffer the consequences.
