“The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name.” Confucius
Since Turkey’s Erdogan most recently explained to the world of infidels – “Islam is Islam, there are no modifiers. Democracy is the train we ride to our ultimate objective.” – more and more articles now appear expanding on that truth by quoting leaders from America’s Muslim communities. One by Scott Richert is ‘Islam, Period’.
Pew Research has shown that the maturing seeds of Islamic terror are already among us. This we have reported before; however, the scope of the problem is something that expands as we understand the numbers and suffer the growing intensity of the so-called lone wolf attacks. Pew also reports on the insularity of Muslim communities that makes it difficult/impossible for so-called moderate Muslims to report any insipient radicalization of their members. From attitudinal surveys the population of potentially radicalizeable American Muslims today is about one in five adults. At a population of 2.75-3M, this yields a cohort of potential terrorists among us that numbers in the hundreds of thousands. And from this heating cauldron of hate we have no idea who or where the next Islamist will decide to do Allah’s will.
Social scientists tell us that historically it takes only 5% of true believers in some socio-political cause to destabilize an entire population. Fewer, if they become militants.

Daily terror - the drumbeat of terror is picking up the pace – in the last 24 hours an elderly French priest holding mass was decapitated in front of his congregation by two terrorists. An attending nun is fighting for her life. While in Berlin a physician was killed by a patient whose ethnic identity is still being kept a secret.
Ever wonder how the Democrats can spout the fantastic job that Obama has done with the economy (‘everything is already great’) from one side of their mouths, while from the other side they concurrently appeal for votes so that they can implement their plan to fix the stubbornly poor economy? Answer: such contradictions are invisible to their constituents.
