The Venus Flytrap (or Dionaea muscipula) is beautiful to look at and has a sweet smelling nectar. Makes you want to get a little closer, a little more comfortable, right? But (humor me here), let's say you're the fly. Does your mind change at all? Or are you still gung-ho over crawling in to have a taste?
Second, terrorists do exist. Islamists terrorize. More often than not, pinpointing a terrorist organization or person working within the same parameters results in an argument unrelated to the matter at hand, that being the issue of Moderate Mulims. If pointing out potential terrorist activity only sparks that same tired debate over and over again, tell me, what does a torrorist look like, act like, believe in? Who can we call out on their actions? What exactly are we looking for? By stressing “religious freedom” to the extent that it interferes with basic American way of life, we essentially give permission to those who hate us to tear us down.
When is enough going to be enough? When are we going to stop being the flies and start doing the gardening and weed out the anti-American values that just don't belong? I encourage all free thinking people to start doing some research of their own. Fact-check everything you read. Learn what Islamic terms mean, like Jihad, Grand Jihad, Taqiyya and Sharia. Also, learn who the known terrorist groups are, such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, and Muslim Brotherhood. Don't get caught in the flytrap of “peace” speeches. It is known that many imams preach peace in English and terrorism in Arabic.Tweet
