In the aftermath of 9/11, Americans were given a persistent and unquestioned drumbeat of messages instructing them not to seek retribution, but to show grace and mercy towards those whose people had carried out the attacks
This mantra has been repeated over and over again following attack after attack in America and Europe.
On one side, someone from another nation can throw a child off a balcony, throw a mother and child in front of a train, kidnap, rape, and murder a young woman, drive a truck through crowds of children in Sweden or France, set off explosives at a concert full of children, kill more than 100 people in synchronized attacks, or coordinate a ring of men that rapes hundreds of little girls over decades, and never once are the victims allowed to ask what can be done to protect themselves from the aggressors. Never once is it explained why foreign men are allowed to come into their country and carry out such heinous acts.
On the other side, the rare times when men from Europe or America engage in acts of terror, there is no discussion of what drove those acts. There are no calls to understand the motives of the shooter. There is certainly no call to shield the remainder of that population from scorn or attack. Instead, members of all other groups unite in a single voice to call for the punishment of that group. Some of them call to confiscate the weapons of that group and some call for the complete annihilation of the group.
For decades, the flow of people in the globe has been one-directional -- from all other nations into Europe and America.
This is not a situation that can stand the test of time.

Bushs suicidal willful ignorance, after 1,400 years of jihad warfare.
As Americans still searched the smoking ruins for the remains of their loved ones, Bush's submission to Dawah, as if the 9/11 attacks had been perpetrated by Americans targeting Muslims.
Grover Norquist's ties to Islamic supremacists and Jihadists have been known for years .. Norquist arranged for an incurious president George W. Bush to meet with fifteen Islamic supremacists at the White House on September 26, 2001 ..
What should have been the most important teaching moment of the long war became a propaganda tool for Islam. A singular opportunity was squandered
UN Agenda 21 ( Let me know if you wish to be added or removed from the list.)
Not exactly true. The Country wanted a response, and we got PGW2 despite ROP.
I figured everyone knew the idiotic ROP narrative was BS, but I guess the Left seized another egregious opportunity.
That GWB speech set us back at least 25 years in properly addressing the problem.
Thanks for posting. Nice crystallization of the situation. Have already passed it on to five individuals.
Put me on the list. Tanks
Pull the other one. Let’s see the 28 pages and compare with with GWB led the public to believe and see what shakes out.
