Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor...

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free..."

These were the words that echoed in the minds of many, who wanted a better life. This is not nessessarily so within islamic jihadists today. There are those that would have you believe that the suicide bombers and other jihadists are just that.

There may be some of the poor involved, but truly, many are well educated and are willing to sacrifice their careers for islam. Jihad has many faces.

Here is an excerpt from Family Security Matters...

"This is why we shouldn’t really be shocked that doctors have become killers, or that al Qaeda would viciously murder fellow Muslim villagers. Those who join in the Islamic Jihad movement have one goal in mind, and that is to (as Spencer states) bring the West “forcibly into the Islamic world.” Committing violence whenever and wherever is part and parcel of the quest. They look for weakness and capitalize on it. If we pull out Iraq now, as “peace” activists and the Democrat Party demand, we’ll hear of many more villages like the one Michael Yon describes. And who will the activists and Democrats blame? Not al Qaeda, but America, the world’s scapegoat, even here at home.

By then, however, placing blame will be irrelevant, as the Jihadists will be emboldened by our leaving. Give an inch and they will take more than just the proverbial mile. And not only will Iraq fall into their clutches, but their operatives around the world will heighten their assault. The worst thing we can do is show weakness. We must dig in our heels and ready ourselves for the long haul.

It’s what our enemies are doing as we speak."
