UPDATE: It's clear from some of the early left-wing blogosphere reaction that I am being accused of calling for the genocide of Muslims in this post. This, of course, is not true, as you can read for yourself. What I call for here is responding with overwhelming force whenever Islamic terrorists attack innocent Americans, and for restricting Muslim immigration to the U.S. to keep this dangerous religion from further rooting itself among us, for the simple reason we have no way of knowing which Muslims carry within their hearts a genocidal determination to destroy us. Once again, the call is out for so-called "moderate" Muslims to help us identify the Muslims we have to worry about, and teach us how to distinguish them from the ones we don't. Until that day comes, we must be cautious with them all.
As an historical aside, it's worth noting that Democrat president Harry Truman brought World War II to an end by essentially pursuing the same military strategy Israel pursued with the Canaanites. When he dropped bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he killed everything that breathed within a huge radius - every man, every woman, every child, every beast of the field. He did so because it was clear that we were facing an enemy of such implacable hostility that overwhelming, catastrophic force was the only language they would understand. And it worked. It brought about peace with Japan, which today is among our strongest allies and trading partners.

There is a link to the most disturbing video I have ever seen in this article, from the Creeping Sharia website.
Unbelievably, it shows a child beheading an adult male, apparently an infidel Muslim, who is alive when the sawing and cutting starts. All the while, his little buddies are in a circle, watching, cheering and praising Allah. These are children! According to the website, this is just one of many such training videos Muslims have posted on the internet. I have no interest in looking at any part of another one.
Nor do I need to see the internet videos of the beheadings of Americans Daniel Pearl (to which Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has confessed) and Nicholas Berg.
The bottom line here is that what you see in this video is the next generation of 9/11 attackers being groomed to kill us. That children could participate cheerily and lustily in this kind of raw, brutal barbarity tells you all you need to know about the spirit that animates Islam. The spirit of Islam is the spirit of Satan himself, the one whom Jesus said came only to rob, kill, and destroy.
Closing Gitmo and sending the uncles of these young boys to art therapy classes is not going to make this go away. The only thing that can possibly protect us from this evil, when they come against us, is a righteous and overwhelming display of lethal force. Meanwhile, the practitioners of this religion should not be allowed to enter the United States, even as visitors.
When you see chilling videos like this, the grooming of young children to believe in and to practice decapitation, you can begin to understand why God instructed the Israelites to kill every living thing among the Canaanites - every man, every woman, and every child. To leave even one alive was to put innocent Israelites in future jeopardy.
The Canaanites were so far gone, so corrupt, so debauched, so given to violence, that they were beyond redemption, like a container of cottage cheese that gets left in a refrigerator which suffers a six week power outage in the middle of a hot summer. When you open that container of cottage cheese, you quickly realize that there is nothing that can be done other than to toss the whole thing out. There is nothing to redeem, nothing to save, nothing that can be saved.
It's worth noting in passing that God gave such instructions only with regard to the inhabitants of Canaan. Similar instructions were never given with regard to the Egyptians, the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Syrians, the Edomites, the Moabites, etc. There was an an unmatched level of depravity that God observed among the Canaanites, and they eventually reached the place where they were beyond redemption.
He had promised Abraham, as recorded in Genesis 15, that he would give him the land of Canaan as his inheritance, but he could not do it for 400 years because "the sin of the Amorites is not yet complete." He gave the Canaanites 400 years to repent and to turn from their depravity, but they refused. Instead, they just kept making deposits into the slop bucket, and finally it was time to empty the bucket. God used the nation of Israel to do the job.
Practitioners of Islam must not be given access to the United States of America. We simply have no idea how many of them have drunk deeply of the same spirit that animated the children in this video, and who may give aid and comfort to those who carry out jihadist attacks even if they do not participate in them themselves.
Muslims must be contained and confined in their own countries, where they can be free to be as spiritually benighted as they wish and be as cruel and savage to each other as they'd like. That is their problem, but we must not let it become ours.
Our security as a nation means we must not be blinded by a naive and exceedingly dangerous political correctness when it comes to Islam. It is an evil, wicked religion and must not be allowed to take root in the United States.
