The Bangkok Post gave that headline to an interview with Jean-Paul Laborde, who heads the U.N.'s Counter-Terrorism Implementation Task Force Office. Click the link above to read the article, i am digging for coprolites.
yet to be eradicated
How do you hope to eradicate terrorism without eradicating those who perform it and those who direct them to perform it?
lots of security
A balloon compressed at any point expands wherever it is not compressed. It is not possible to secure every potential soft target 24/7/365.
law enforcement efforts
Terrorism is not a law enforcement issue, it is one component of warfare. Since it is inspired by sanctified doctrine and directed by both state and non-state entities, it must be combated on two battlefronts: ideological and military. Whenever you arrest or kill one terrorist, others will come forward to replace him.
We do not control the schools in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria or Iran. Their text books are not printed in our language. We can not dictate what content they inculcate or how they inculcate it. The suggestion that it can be done demonstrates the rare height of arrogance achieved by bureaucrats.
Schools in Islamic nations teach the sanctity, necessity & divine obligation of terrorism because they are Islamic. They teach the contents of the Qur'an, Sunnah & Sira because those texts define & exemplify Islam. If you want to do something about that, eliminate Islam.
promotion of tolerance
We stupidly tolerate Islam, which seeks to destroy or dominate us; there is no better sign of civilizational insanity. Islam does not tolerate us because intolerance is ordained by Allah in his book and Moe in his Sunnah. You can not inject tolerance into Islam because Allah said "whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him" [3:85] Moe said "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.'". [Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387]
protection of human rights
Such as our right to live, secure in our persons and property; or the Muslim's 'right' to kill, enslave, rape, pillage and plunder. Moe said something about that in the hadith cited above, so I will quote the entire saying here. Read it slowly; let the full meaning sink in.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah." Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, "O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?" He replied, "Whoever says, 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah', faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have."
ordered to fight the people
What could possibly be less tolerant than that?
till they say
Freedom of religion, anyone?
then their blood and property will be sacred to us
Our blood and property are not sacred to Muslims until we become Muslims. Life? liberty? Property? Kiss them goodbye if you will not eliminate Islam from the earth. Its open season on us so long as Islam exists.
has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have
Only Muslims have rights. Got a clue yet??
Slowly bleeding to death, sending our soldiers to fight an invisible enemy with suicidal rules of engagement is not sustainable. Random pat downs & body scans are not sustainable. Waiting for the next bomb to detonate is not sustainable. Constant terror is not sustainable. Paying tribute is not sustainable. What did President Jefferson do?
regional and international cooperation
You might begin by adopting Israel's airline security tactics and continue by accepting her check points and security wall instead of condemning them.
There is one terrorist group: Islam.
proper Islamic teaching
Islamic teaching consists of the Qur'an, Sunnah, Sira & Fiqh, exactly what they are teaching now: the 'religious obligation' to hate & exterminate Jews and conquer the entire world. Anything that contradicts the Qur'an & Sunnah will not be accepted, it will be rejected as bida.The next coprolite incorporates the questioner's false premise which is included and italicized.
How do you balance recognition of expression of religious freedom and prevention of radicalism, especially in grass-roots education?
We need to promote a culture of peace and of tolerance.
While we speak about freedom of religion, we must address issues of tolerance to respect diversity.
The right to practice one's religion is restricted to Muslims. Where Allah's writ runs, Jews & Christians are forbidden to build or maintain houses of worship, display crosses, ring bells, pray aloud in public and hold public processions & funerals. They are not permitted to own or carry weapons, use saddles or testify in court against a Muslim.The practice of Islam involves obedience to Allah & emulation of Moe. It is inseverable, not a la carte. Allah commanded: "fight them until". Jihad is an integral part of the practice of Islam. It can not be ignored, neither can it be stricken from the Qur'an. Believers fight in Allah's cause, killing others and being killed. [9:111] This little sample of fiqh may help you to comprehend the fatal fact.
culture of peace and of tolerance
As already demonstrated, peace & tolerance are polar opposites of Islam. They won't fit and can't be forced.
The insurgency in southern Thailand is Islamic. Islam is transnational, it crosses borders freely. U.N. bureaucrats are neither intelligent enough nor honest enough to acknowledge that fact.
Terror is a psychological condition, imposed as a battle tactic for the purpose of rendering a victim incapable of mounting an effective defense. When stung by a wasp, do you settle for killing the offending wasp? No, you destroy the nest so that you will not be stung again. Islam is the source of terrorism. Allah said "I will cast terror". Allah commanded Muslims to maximize the strength of their army to "strike terror" in their enemies. Allah cast terror, resulting in the death, enslavement and dispossession of local Jewish settlements. Moe bragged that: "I have been made victorious with terror".It is not possible to fight terror, you must fight its source: Islam. Believers are motivated by Allah's promise of eternity in the celestial bordello and threat of eternity in the fire. So long as there are Islamic believers , there will be terrorism. You have three choices:
- make them stop believing
- make them stop breathing
- suffer continued torment and eventual defeat & enslavement.
