What a difference six years makes!
In the mind-numbing aftermath of 9/11, who would have guessed that within just a few years American politicians would be campaigning on promises to ensure the comfort of incarcerated terrorists... that Hollywood writers would be generating reams of scripts replete with noble Muslim characters persecuted by fictitious American bigots... that footbaths would be making their way into airports and public universities... or that Muslim travelers would be chasing lawsuit dollars by scaring the hell out of fellow airline passengers with deliberately provocative behavior.
Welcome to this brave, new world, where even Osama bin Laden must be shaking his head over the spasm of Western butt-kissing that follows high-profile Islamic terror. Each new attack in the name of Allah seems to bring a fresh round of public groveling to the religion that inspires it - even if we can count on one hand the number of Muslims courageously calling the Islamic world to accountability for the violence.
Yet, for all of the reward that Islam has reaped from 9/11, it is still losing the public relations battle. Favorable opinion of Islam has declined steadily in the last several years, as ordinary people have noticed the persistence of Muslim terror and (more importantly) the indifference and arrogance of the broader Islamic community.
For all of the stale, half-hearted pronouncements that Islam "has nothing to do" with the killing (usually made by individuals or organizations which don't otherwise seem all that concerned), the ugly truth is that it is the "radicals" who have Islam's history and holiest texts on their side. Thus the terror continues - now having reached 10,000 attacks since 9/11, as documented here.

In 1683, Muslim armies threatened to overrun Christian Europe after a thousand years of relentless Jihad. Their advance was stopped at the gates of Vienna by determined defenders, and Western civilization was free to enjoy three centuries of cultural and technological advancement.
Today the West is threatened again by Jihad. Allah's Holy Warriors may not choose to face us on the battlefield as men, but they seek domination through the appropriation of culture and acquiescent politicians. Shadowy terrorist groups emerge periodically to blow up commuters and office workers, while our leaders quickly assure us that it has nothing to do with Islam.
We are marching to dhimmitude and disaster, seduced by fifth column groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations, who work behind the lines, infiltrating our political and legal system and intimidating those daring to deny that Islam is The Religion of Peace. Their efforts are applauded by multiculturalists, today's 'useful idiots,' who don't understand the threat that Islam poses to their own freedom.
The Jihad is real. The stakes are enormous. Help us build the gates of Vienna for the digital age. Help support TheReligionofPeace.com and send the irrefutable warning that Islam is many things, but it is certainly not a Religion of Peace.
We are already making a difference!
