Radical Islamic jihadist extremism has been on the rise around the globe, thanks in large part to a weak and misguided foreign policy by the United States, a European Union with their head in the sand, and a largely silent majority of moderate and civilized Muslims.
But the radical Islamic jihadists won’t go away if they are ignored, and they won’t be appeased by concessions. They have declared war against civilized society, and they are ready to fight.
One Fox News host is ready to take them up on that fight and is calling for a “holy war” against the radical Islamic jihadists, according to Breitbart.
Back in August, at the height of the Islamic State’s rampage across Iraq, Fox host Eric Bolling closed out his weekend Cashin’ In program with a rant against the jihadists engaged in brutal and horrific terrorist acts around the world.
“Wake up, America — radical Islam is terrorizing the globe,” Bolling said. “ISIS, or the Islamic state, is attempting ethnic genocide in Iraq, trapping tens of thousands of men, women and children all because they practice their faith in a way radical Islam disagrees with, and ISIS has already driven a million Christians out of Iraq, to Egypt where extremist Muslim Brotherhood went on a murderous rampage and killed Coptic Christians, and burning down their churches just because they’re Christian.”
“To Israel, Islamic jihad teamed up with Hamas and is firing rockets at innocent Israelis. Iran, Pakistan, Syria — radical Islam is a jihad against Christianity, and frankly anyone who doesn’t worship the way they do,” he said. “There’s a common denominator, they’re Islamic, they’re radical, they’re extremists and they’re purely intolerant. It’s time to wake up.”
“Check out this video of an ISIS leader who says we will not stop until they raise the flag of Mohammed in the White House,” Bolling said. “Really? Our White House? I don’t think so. We’ve been largely patient with these Islamic thugs. I’ve been pushing back on getting involved in conflicts that aren’t ours. This persecution of Christians and the new war cry of ‘we will not stop until we raise the flag of Mohammed at the White House’ changes everything. You want a holy war? We’ll give you one. It just may be time to unleash hell on radical Islam. Don’t worry Islamic jihadists – your 72 virgins await.”
Eric Bolling is dead on right. The radical Islamists have declared war on us, so we are within our rights to defend our nation and way of life from the existential threat posed by radical Islamism.
Obviously, threats must be assessed and weighed, and jihadists that pose little or no threat should certainly be placed low on the priority list. But those jihadists groups that have vowed to attack us, like the Islamic State, and of course Al Qaeda, should be hunted down and destroyed wherever they reside, before they have the opportunity or ability to launch attacks on or from within our homeland.
