Pat Buchanan has offended anti-American libertarians who think Islam is gentle.
Buchanan said the Ground Zero mosque is a development planned by a man with the “religious motivation of the Saudis who attacked the towers” and should not be built. This has Fred Reed of LewRockwell.com infuriated: America is not at war with Islam, prior to 9/11 America never considered Islam violent and by no means would alleged Muslims attack America. Reed blames America for Islamic violence — America is the bloodthirsty beast that created Muslim monsters and was never attacked by Islam.
If America is not at war with Islam, who are the maniacs screaming Allahu akbar every time Americans are attacked here and overseas?
The 9/11 attacks were not committed by Mazel Tov-screaming Jews. Other than radical leftist terrorist groups who always support Islam, attacks around the world are carried out by Muslim terrorists following world-conquering Islamic sharia law.
Buchanan, of the American Conservative, [is] proclaiming that Islam is a Culture of Jihad, and most militant…Would it be poltroonish of me to note that just now Christian armies are busily annexing and wrecking Afghanistan and Iraq, having recently bombed Somalia? That they use robotic aircraft to murder Yemenis, that they hunt down Moslems in the Philippines (where after 1898 Americans engaged in atrocities that would win the admiration of the Japanese), encourage Israel to ruin Lebanon and to run a concentration camp for Moslems in Gaza, enthusiastically murder Pakistanis from the sky, and threaten Syria and Iran?
Leftist anti-American ideology indicts America as the controlling world conqueror and Islam as misunderstood because “not one Islamic nation is in the First World.” That’s because Muslims are too busy forcefully amalgamating the First World to their culture.
Note to Reed, Buchanan consistently says he is against the Iraq war. His magazine recently stated: “If we’re honest, since day one, the War on Terror has actually been a war for it.” Buchanan shares similar views of war—avoid unless
But it is Buchanan’s pro-West Christian statements against Islam that anger Reed.
