25 Years of failed policies built on the lie  -- that if we deny that terrorism is rooted in Islam, we can stop radicalization -- have resulted in the most powerful terror army since Genghis Khan: the Islamic State. It's time for a change.

Dec 9, 2015 Mark Krikorian fine tunes Trump's point. 

UPDATE: Center for Immigration Studies' Mark Krikorian argues that Trump's "crude" immigration comments actually open the conversation to formulate effective policy.

Dec. 7, 2015 Trump Reads His Muslim Statement.

After the attack in San Bernardino the US has reached breaking point. It's Trump -- who is beholden to no one --  who is confronting the nation with the reality of the situation, even if he will be shred to pieces over it by the denial psychos. Somebody's got to do it. It might as well be the Donald.

Oct 6, 2015 In season 5 episode 1 of the TV series Homeland, 'rogue' agent Peter Quinn tells it like it is. 

UPDATE: Astonishingly in a series that has improved markedly over time, but is still a fest of spin and moral equivalence, a roguish agent, Peter Quinn is spelling out the truth about the Islamic State. It has become so bad, that the Russians are making hay out of the lies the West has been telling itself: that "ISIS is the creation of the CIA". More about this subject in a posting later on today.

Objectivist artist Bosch Fawstin visualized another doctrinal error in a brilliant cartoon:

Lies and self deception isn't a strategy. It's time we all started facing reality so the root problem can be addressed. 

The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault. In France, Britain, Germany, America and nearly every other country in the world it remains government policy to say that any and all attacks carried out in the name of Mohammed have ‘nothing to do with Islam’. (...) All these leaders are wrong. In private, they and their senior advisers often concede that they are telling a lie. The most sympathetic explanation is that they are telling a ‘noble lie’, provoked by a fear that we — the general public — are a lynch mob in waiting. ‘Noble’ or not, this lie is a mistake.
  • First, because the general public do not rely on politicians for their information and can perfectly well read articles and books about Islam for themselves. 
  • Secondly, because the lie helps no one understand the threat we face. 
  • Thirdly, because it takes any heat off Muslims to deal with the bad traditions in their own religion. 
  • And fourthly, because unless mainstream politicians address these matters then one day perhaps the public will overtake their politicians to a truly alarming extent. 
If politicians are so worried about this secondary ‘backlash’ problem then they would do well to remind us not to blame the jihadists’ actions on our peaceful compatriots and then deal with the primary problem — radical Islam — in order that no secondary, reactionary problem will ever grow. 

Yet today our political class fuels both cause and nascent effect. Because the truth is there for all to see. To claim that people who punish people by killing them for blaspheming Islam while shouting ‘Allah is greatest’ has ‘nothing to do with Islam’ is madness. Because the violence of the Islamists is, truthfully, only to do with Islam: the worst version of Islam, certainly, but Islam nonetheless. (Source)

For the last 25 years the West has adopted the doctrine, that if we deny that terrorism is rooted in Islam, we can stop radicalization. And may even win Muslims for our side! After a quarter of a century of pursuing this doctrine, we have the manifestation of the Islamic State to show for it. Isn't it time to reject the lie that many world leaders actually have started to believe themselves? (Source)

Muslims do not even understand the concept of terrorism (tweet), which is warfare against civilians. According to Islamic ethics every infidel is a legitimate target; the division between warfare and civilian is a Western construct.

Muslim terrorists have devised a rationalization of grievances that supports resistance to 'Western hegemony'. This is often based on far Leftist narrative rooted in the Marxist dialectics of oppressors verses the oppressed, another bankrupt construct. The Western Left have been supporting that rationalization and has become an accomplice.

While the extreme violence used by IS warrants good old suppression (tweet), the only real way out of this mess is that both Muslims and the Left morally reject terrorism as a means of dealing with perceived grievances. Muslims must give up Jihad as a means to spread the faith.

More needs to be done. Read it in the Special "Saving Liberty from the 3rd Jihad. But it will be a start to tell our politicians that the policy of denying the tie between terrorism and Islam is broke. The result is the largest army of terror since Genghis Khan. It's time to face the truth.

Muslims must be confronted with the reality of their faith so that they can start dealing with it. Death, destruction and slavery of women and children has been the result of Islamic ethics.

The Nihilism of ISIS will at some point become unsustainable and all out war will become inevitable. It can still be averted. Only Muslims can save Islam.

This is an almost universal effort; everyone needs to get involved. The root problem is Islam, but the solution starts with addressing the broken policies of Western politicians.

We need to spread the message: get creative with slogans and hashtags combining the following memes: 25years > lies/denial > IS > terrorism > moral bankruptcy. Here's an example.
