Yeah I don't know who that lady is but she did a terrific job of explaining the problem with the moderate Muslim. Moderation is good and noble, but its no answer in the face of violence and death.

There is a time and place for everything, and that means some times are right for sailing that skull and crossbones and pulling out the guns.

Thanks for the link!

I remember reading some years ago of a defense of pacifism and non-violent resistance that pointed out how successful it had been for Gandhi. The writer responded that yes, but then, Gandhi was resisting the British. If he had been resisting the Nazi SS, they'd have simply shot him and that would have been that.

With ISIS committing wholesale slaughter in Iraq, completely unchallenged by the rest of the Muslim world, it really does not matter how many "moderate" Muslims there are.

Gandhi urged Jews in Europe to use non-violent resistance so the Germans would eventually see the error of their ways. There are more tools in the shed than hammers, Gandhi.

Simple, as Mistah Kurtz said: "Exterminate all the brutes!"

That's Brigitte Gabriel. She can really bring it. I think she is the lady that grew up in a Lebanese refugee camp.

This is great, but watch the guy on the left. He knows she is going to knock it out of the park.

Saba Ahmed (the woman from the audience addressing the panel)!is no "moderate muslim". She's a fifth-columnist straight out of CAIR land.

This is the panel discussion that Dana Milbank described as a near lynching of the Muslim woman who asked the initial question. Now I see how incredibly dishonest he is.

Notice how the "moderate" Moslem presents herself as the victim by speaking in babytalk. That's the surest sign of a Marxist, right there.

Radical Muslims kill everybody. Moderate Muslims pray that Radical Muslims kill everybody.
That Ahmed woman certainly enjoys the lap of luxury here. She oughta put her money where her mouth is.

I say the only way to deal with any and all Muslims is to forcibly deport them to the homelands they say they love so much. That's for the moderates. The radicals, shoot on sight.

I am tired of fooling around, he said. As for the rights of anyone, tell your people they can go fuck themselves. by Carolyn Forche.

I overwork this quote but that's because the writer is much more succinct and articulate than I am.

The man on the far left nodding vigourously is Chris Planke, he of the 9-12 radio time slot on Washington's WMAL.

What cracks me up is that her accent and skin tone make her virtually immune to the usual leftist tricks to distract from her point. They can't yell racist or bigot at her.
