Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The State of the Jihad:

Comments

A

Notice how Jihad is everywhere. Every single place where there is a muslim presence knows Jihad.

islam and jihad are linked. They can only be destroyed together.

GK

A,

It is certainly not accurate to conclude that all Muslims are jihadis. Most Muslims are not directly harmful to others.

But it is true that we need more moderate Muslims to actively oppose jihad, rather than remain on the sidelines as neutrals.

Congratulations GK, the blog has now been restored to its former glory, with the dodgy politics & all!

I'll just refer you to this one article, from today, as a counterpoint to your typically absurd statement about Britain/France being in the jihad. You're in danger of fulfilling the desires of the fantasists with arguments that labels their narcissism jihad. (English people - somewhat used to terrorist attacks from the days of the Irish Republicans - are probably more concerned right now with our dismal showing in the Ashes!)

I wonder what you feel about the Republican wipeout in the mid-terms, which would indicate some disatisfaction in the US population with Bush's running of the "War on Terror" or "counter-jihad against the Islamofacist hordes"?

As ever, best regards.

(English people - somewhat used to terrorist attacks from the days of the Irish Republicans - are probably more concerned right now with our dismal showing in the Ashes!)

You mean typical showing in the Ashes. Also, another event that England does very poorly in, the World Cup, is around the corner.

But I digress..

I'll just refer you to this one article

Your own article states that :

"He acknowledged that the country faced a different and more dangerous threat than in the days of IRA terrorism and that it had "all the disturbing elements of a death cult psychology"."

You probably disagree with this. Is this "Islamophobia"?

And did you read the article I linked to about "The State of the Jihad"? It is non-political, except to those who refuse to admit that Islamic extremism exist (something both Democrats and Republicans agree on, in the US).

I wonder what you feel about the Republican wipeout in the mid-terms,

Your understanding of US politics is poor. The center of gravity on the US congress has actually moved to the right, due to some of the new Democrats being conservatives.

The US Senate now has 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats, and 2 independents. Joe Lieberman is one of those independents, and supports the Iraq War. He won easily against his anti-war Leftist challenger.

which would indicate some disatisfaction in the US population with Bush's running of the "War on Terror"

Not in the way that you think. The public (myself included) is unhappy that the US had not waged the war aggressively enough. The force applied is inadequate.

In addition to the Lieberman example, the only Republican who opposed the Iraq War, Lincoln Chafee, was voted out.

None of the items that the anti-US leftists hate, like the Patriot Act, Wiretapping, funding for the Iraq War, will get discontinued. Just watch.

Plus, it is the President who matters more than anything else. Just about any Democrat would rather have the Whitehouse than Congress, if they had to choose one. Note that the Republicans controlled congress for most of Clinton's Presidency.
