Contrary to what you may have heard from the liberals in your life or on the news, the biggest threat to our national security — and that of any nation if we’re being honest — is not climate change. It’s radical Islamic terrorism.
Over the last seventeen years we’ve seen Jihadis fly planes into buildings, behead hostages, crucify children, drive vehicles into crowds, detonate countless suicide bombs, and about a billion other horrific things.
Their acts of violence are driven by a twisted ideology born of their religious beliefs, as these groups are sold that they have been chosen by their god to bring about the end of the world.
There’s no negotiating with them because they will settle for nothing less than world domination, the forced conversion of all people on the planet.
So how do we put a stop to this madness? How do we deal with blood thirsty religious psychopaths bent on destruction and murder?
Well, apparently if you’re the police in Denmark, you create the “hug a Jihadi” program. No, I’m not making this up. It’s a real thing.
From Fox News:
In Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city, authorities are using a method referred to by some as the “hug a terrorist” or “hug a jihadi” model of de-radicalization.
They are trying to change the minds of potential Islamic extremists by supporting them and offering them kindness rather than treating them as outcasts and criminals.
“Dateline” reporter Evan Williams spoke with a man using the alias Jamal, who said he was so disenfranchised and angry with society he was considering leaving Denmark and becoming a terrorist.
“In my mind, I was like, ‘They treated me as a terrorist. If they want a terrorist, they will get a terrorist,’” he said.
When he began speaking with someone from the “hug a jihadi” program, he began to open up about the unique difficulties of being a Muslim in Denmark.
Williams said that’s when Jamal began to reconsider his views.
This whole “Jihadis just need a buddy” garbage is an idea along the same vein as the “terrorists only kill people because they lack economic opportunity” junk that was spewed out by the former administration several years back.
The overwhelming majority of radical Islamic terrorists — legit ones, not these fakers who are acting out to gain attention — you know, the ones who actually carry out their crimes, do so because they wholesale buy into the ideology they are spoon fed.
It’s not that they don’t have enough “caring and understanding” friends. I mean, it’s sort of difficult to make buddies when you’re plotting to murder folks in cold blood, for the sake of your whacked out religion.
No, the problem, at its core, is twisted ideology and dedication to a false god. Unfortunately, in today’s super ooey gooey politically correct climate, no one wants to admit that we’re in an ideological war and that countering the core ideas of this religion should be part of our strategy for dismantling terror groups.
We absolutely need to have a ground game with military action to put these groups down. After all, bullets and bombs are the only language they appear to understand.
However, we need to stop them from continuing to recruit after the smoke clears the battlefield. That means backing Christian missionaries who go to the area to plant churches and spreading information about the truth of our country, the story the average folk in the Middle East do not hear about America.
This is the only strategy that will work and it’s the only one we haven’t given a shot. It certainly beats “hug a Jihadi.”
