WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush, who believes most journalists should be thrown in jail, today demands that the U.S. government crack down on Muslim foreign nationals living in the country following the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma.
In a column titled “Is It Time To Deport, Intern Foreign Muslims?,” Rush claims that all Muslims are either terrorists or terrorist-sympathizers who must be hounded like Japanese-Americans during World War II.
“We deported, expelled and interned foreign nationals and naturalized citizens for a whole lot less during World War II, and I would certainly call for the deportation or expulsion of all Muslim foreign nationals at this juncture,” he writes.
In an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” last weekend, President Barack Obama reiterated his assertion that America is not at war with Islam, that “Islam preaches peace” and that the majority of Muslims are peaceful.
I would submit that the absence of demonstrable violence does not necessarily constitute being “peaceful.” In the years since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America by militant Muslims, the question of just who and where these “peaceful” Muslims are has been discussed endlessly. Americans have asked the question – time and again – why the so-called “peaceful Muslims” we hear so much about are reticent to disavow the actions of militant Muslims.
I believe the answer to that question has become clear. Contrary to the contentions of the political left, it would appear that the majority of Muslims worldwide are more than willing to rationalize the actions of those the Western press dubs “militant Muslims” as that of defending Islam or the so-called rights of Muslims. The history of Islam certainly bears this out, as does the Quran, which expressly calls for violence – and beheadings in particular – in the advance of Islam.
In the face of its surreal and manifestly treasonous deportment, the Obama administration is also set to announce sweeping new restrictions on racial and religious profiling in federal investigations, including those involving matters of national security. This of course comes in the midst of heightened concerns of Islamic militant groups executing a terror attack on U.S. soil. In fact, Islamist militant leaders abroad have called for such attacks, just as they called weeks ago for lone-wolf attacks and beheadings of Americans on American soil.
We deported, expelled and interned foreign nationals and naturalized citizens for a whole lot less during World War II, and I would certainly call for the deportation or expulsion of all Muslim foreign nationals at this juncture.
