Tancredo voicing views of public, radio host says

His remarks about retaliation on Mecca have ignited debate
By M.E. Sprengelmeyer

WASHINGTON - Back when Pat Campbell was a math teacher, he never imagined he'd see his name in Pravda, Al Jazeera and media outlets around the globe.

That's what happened this week, when the self-made radio talk show host in Florida guided U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo into some dicey talk about deterring terrorism that triggered an international backlash.

Griego: Tancredo peddles fear as bold pragmatism

Tom Tancredo is to columnists as manna was to the Israelites. A gift from God. So outlandish has he become.

Unfortunately, there is nothing sustaining or nourishing about what Tancredo has to say. This does not keep us from writing and him from making headlines for comments condemned internationally as inflammatory, misguided and irresponsible


And check out this little gem from Today's Washington Post...


Al-Abdullah, the Kuwaiti political scientist, put some blame on the way the question was put to the congressman. "These imaginary 'what if' questions are endless," he said.

Pardon the pun, but this is beginning to "Mushroom". An apology would be a defacto statement against the First Amendment Rights, something foreign to tyrants, aristocrats, and dictators. Would it it suffice if Rep. Tancredo went to the House floor, and "apologized" like Turbin Durbin did? Survival Rights trump Civil Rights. Keeping the "birds warmed up" is prudent. If a holocaust were to happen, would Internment Camps be the answer? Or would Interment be better? TO address the issue of "I've never heard this since 9.11....", I feel many across the world, and in particular the U.S., are FED UP WITH TOLERANCE. We have tolerated enough Bravo Sierra from politicians, pacifists, socialists etc. Quit trying to sell a rotten pie with a golden brown crust. This "war" could be over in less than 24hrs. "Good" Muslims can turn in the "radicals". RICO statutes can be enforced, re: CAIR, ACLU, Madrasa's etc. England is a microcasm of the U.S. just wait and see. It is a matter of wills. Do we have the will to do what is required when the time comes? We have seen the will of Islam for over 1,000 years. Islam has no concept of time: out patience patience's patience with patience.

Oh Allah, Liberate Our Al-Aqsa Mosque... Punish the Occupying Zionists and Their Supporters Among The Corrupt Infidels... Oh Allah, Scatter and Disperse
Them"

From Sheikh Al-Sudayyis' Friday sermon of July 15, 2005 in Mecca, aired on Saudi Arabia's Channel 1. Brought to us by
MEMRI:
Block quote start
"With all the violence and bombings that today's world has suffered, and with all the terrorism and destruction which have robbed the world of sleep, which
are considered by all intelligent and honorable people as criminal, which are prohibited by all esteemed Muslim scholars, and whose negative effects afflict
the Islamic nation – one of the most dangerous wars to afflict the Islamic nation and to cause atrophy and decadence to nations and civilizations is the
war against virtue and to promote vice.

"The noble Islamic law deals with all issues. One of the most important issues is protecting women's honor – indeed, defending families, and protecting
societies and generations from the flames of vice, from the removal of the veil, from the volcanoes of debauchery, from the storms of evil, from the armies
of harlotry, from the voracity of pleasure, and from bestial libertinism.

"The most dangerous weapon which the enemy has raised against us – with which he tore to pieces our established order, and with which he soiled our spiritual
and social purity, is the terrible deluge of all manner of vice, which is considered a form of moral terrorism against the values, ideals, and virtues
of the Islamic nation.

"[This war is waged] by means of the licentious satellite channels and the vile spiderwebs of the Internet, whose gloom fills the sky with darkness and
spreads its stench in all directions, and by means of those hidden computer discs, which are the cauldron of sin, consumed by the old, young, and inexperienced,
while fathers, mothers, and educators are heedless and negligent.

"Oh brethren in faith, morning has dawned upon all with eyes to see, without ambiguity or falsehood. It has become clear that the enemies of virtue, the
marshals of licentiousness, and the heroes of sexual promiscuous pleasures have a most ill-fated hope and aspiration to export sexual diseases and vice
in the form of a plague, which shall crush the fortresses of the Muslims, the fortresses of honor and virtue, and they hope that [Muslims] will abandon
the castles of chastity, honor, and virtue, which have been effaced by time, and have become a matter of the past.

"Oh, Allah, heal our sick, have mercy on our dead, release our prisoners, and save our Al-Aqsa Mosque. Oh Allah, liberate our Al-Aqsa Mosque from the defilement
of the occupying and brutal Zionists. Oh Allah, make it high and mighty until Judgment Day. Oh Allah, punish the occupying Zionists and their supporters
from among the corrupt infidels. Oh Allah, scatter and disperse them, and make an example of them for those who take heed."...

you people have to be kidding. does anyone here have a problem with killing innocent women and chidren? or do you really hate America? Killing innocent women and children would just make us the worst terrorists on the planet. how about we just impeach bush now for starting this stupid war on terror? And Nicole, nice photo, how about we discuss politics over dinner?

J, it's ok if you're scared. Just remember, fear allows life to flourish. Guess you missed the biography of UBL on "A&E" on Friday evening.

JB, war is hell. You do realize we are at war. At war with an enemy that dresses like innocent people. But if you really want to save innocent lives, why don't you rally against abortion, or drunk drivers ... betcha we lose more people that way than in the terror stuff!

wm, yes we are at war: at war with a country that had no weapons of mass distruction and had nothing to do with the attack on the the United States - don't you have a problem with this? This war is stupid and to even suggest we should nuke innocent women and children is just stupid. How about we just impeach stupid boy george?

No, JB, we are NOT at war with a country. We are at war with a terrorist idiology. The enemy has no country and wears no uniform. They do no adheare to any rules of warefare (the Geneva Convention) and think nothing of killing non-combatants in the name of whatever they decide is something to justify their actions. Go search the web and find a total of innocent civilians that the terrorist have killed in the last, say, 20 years. It is obvious from your retoric that you are just a Bush hater and, like the terrorists, will justify anything if it makes your point.
