The Arabs are bombing, murdering, mutilating, raping and wreaking havoc all over the Judeo/Christian world. Israel has nothing to do with it -- nothing!

The front pages of the LA Times been completely filled with the latest catastrophic actions from these savage, barbaric Arabs who tortured and slaughtered hundreds of school children and their mothers during the past few days in the horrific school bombings.

Children, Babies, who were forced to drink their own urine, because they were tortured and denied water and food for over two days in 95 degree heat. One six-year-old child was reported to have been killed by having a bayonet thrust through his little body when he had the audacity to ask for water from these "brave men" who were holding them hostage. Then if that wasn't bad enough, over twenty of these small children were shot in the back from snipers on the roof-tops as they were trying to escape to run to the safety of their mothers arms.

The Muslims are experts in killing babies. I remember the massacre of the Kindergarten in Maalot in 1974. More so, while covering the war in June of '82 in Lebanon and saw what cowards these vermin were. They excel in bombings and terror attacks on subways, planes and schools. But when they are in a real combat situation and have to fight, then they disappear or run with their hands in the air, waving white flags before the first shot is fired.

They have also taken two French journalists as hostages, in order to influence French domestic laws. This is especially interesting since Mr. Jacques Chirac and France, since 1967, have gone out of they're way to alienate their western allies and openly side with the Arabs in the name of special relationship and understanding of the Arab world.

They want to pressure the French to change their laws on headscarf. Otherwise, they were going to use the journalists to make a political statement. Folks, this is only the beginning. Within five years the required fashion in Paris will be burqas.

Page two in the Times continued with a story of how a female suicide bomber wearing an explosive device stuffed with metal bolts killed at least nine people in a Moscow subway station in a blast and injured about a hundred more. This, in addition to the two airplanes that the Muslim fundamentalists blew up a few days ago, in Russia. Then about a hundred innocent people were killed in those 2 attacks. I can't even look at the television and see the nightly death toll of our soldiers in Iraq. We are paying a great price with our soldier's blood to bring freedom and democracy to this modern day Babylon.

The reality is, if we don't root out terrorism in all its manifestations, wherever it is, this nightmare which right now we are just watching on the evening news will eventually reach our shores, as well as the other free nations around the world.

Somewhere buried in the LA Times was a story about how these same subhuman savage 'militants' who had killed twelve Nepalese workers want more! More concessions and more blood! Later in the day I received a graphic video of them, beheading these poor civilians. We are dealing with a mentality that only understands force.

I've seen it! The Russians aren't known for being very politically correct. If I were living through the horror they've gone through these past few days, I'd pressure my government into sending a "laser-guided missile" into every one of those mosques where they plan, train and finance these attacks with a note attached reading, "Never again!"

In fact, now would be a perfect time to drop leaflets on the mosques that plan and train the terrorists that from now on the next thing dropped on them are missiles dipped in pig's blood. No more 'restrained action' as they are regularly recommended by our government, the EU and UN. When the next terrorists action happens, just do it!

Somebody has to do something! President Bush is out there trying to defend his policies locating the WMD's, when everyone and their Arab brothers know that they have been moved into Syria. Who do we think we're kidding?

The effort against fundamentalist Islam must be worldwide. Whether it's Afghanistan, Russia, the Philippines, United States or Israel! It is the freedom of every individual that is at stake here! When are we going to wake up! Our lives are being disrupted on a daily basis.

Today, the Los Angeles airport was shut down because of a 'terrorist' threat. As I vented my anger to my kid she said, "Mom, how do you know it's Arabs who are behind this?" Yeah right, it's probably a gang from Norway or Finland! Of course it's the Muslims! Name me one other group that is bent on destroying our lives as we know them?

I haven't even begun to get around to the holocaust caused by these same Muslim Fundamentalists who are rampaging, raping and killing hundreds of thousands of Sudanese Christians and black Africans because they refuse to bow to their god, Allah!

It doesn't matter where they are. It all boils down to the fact that the Judeo/Christian free world is at war with an evil, vicious, seventh century barbaric Islamic culture. These people kill indiscriminately. The Islamic Muslims don't care who they target. Children, old people, people ridding on buses, teen-agers going to discotheques, eating in pizza parlors, are all fair game. Even other Muslims. I think that the world is finally realizing that it's not just Israel who is the target. It's anyone who isn't THEM. By that, I mean anyone who isn't a Fundamentalist Muslim.

Interestingly enough, while watching the Holocaust in the Russian school unfold on the news stations, I was speaking on the phone with a technician about a computer glitch that I had. We had been speaking for a couple of days and he sounded like a very nice man. He was a Muslim man from Iran who had left that country thirty years ago. He told me how badly he felt about the ongoing horrors being played out on the television as we spoke. Yet, when I asked him what he did personally to speak out about the actions that he apparently found so disturbing by those in his culture, he was silent. I asked what was being said about the behavior from those in his mosques. He was quiet, then said, "What can I do, as one person?: You have a newspaper column. You have a voice." That, folks, seems to be the attitude of all of them.

Ironically, most people here that I've spoken with don't even comprehend that this is a long term problem that has been foisted upon us by 1.3 billion people. My daughter said, Mom, my friend, Selena is an Arab and isn't like that. Well, that's quite possible. Maybe there are millions of them that are like her friend Selena. Yet, where is the outcry from the Muslim community? The newspapers and television are filled with the outrages caused by her culture. Show me one mosque or protest by those peaceful Muslims? ONE!

Yet, these barbarians are quick to dance in the streets and pass out candy to all their children at the joy of seeing the carnage in Israel's or any other part of the civilized western world. I fully expect to turn on the television and see them dancing on the roof-tops in Iraq, Iran and Gaza, celebrating the dead babies in Russia.

The only way we are going to defeat this issue is with TRUTH! The first step is to cut the political correctness over this issue! Enough is enough! Secondly, we need to help Israel complete the security barrier as soon as possible, despite the United Nations' objection. Finally, we need to implement the same policy regarding "rooting out terrorism in all its forms, wherever it is." Whether it's Afghanistan, Iraq, Russia, the Sudan, Iran, Syria, or Israel. We should not be applying a "double standard" when it comes to eliminating this evil around the world.
