You Knew What I Was......
You Knew What I was.....
There's an old Middle Eastern fable about the frog who was asked by a scorpion to let him ride on his back to cross a river. The frog is hesitant, and makes the scorpion promise not to sting him as they cross. "I would be a fool to sting you, we would both drown", replies the scorpion. The frog relents, allowing the scorpion to climb on, they begin to cross. Suddenly, the scorpion stings the frog, paralyzing him. As they sink, the frog asks "Why did you sting me, now we are both doomed." As the scorpion disappears he answers, "You knew what I was when you let me get on your back." Old truisms persist because man repeats his follies, making them germane in any era.
As we watch the numbers of Muslims increase in our nation, we will probably be surprised many times in the future by home grown terrorists who attack us.
I suggest that the waves of immigrants before were from a world in which religion was a second identity to being American. People came to our shores for freedom from all the things that Muslim rule would bring. Shira law is a mirror image of all the things America stands for. The twisted version of the Muslim religion given to us by our friends the Saudis leaves no room for any other religion or way of life. Yield or die is the message they bring, backed up with beheading, cutting off of hands and stoning. There is no way possible for a follower of Islam as preached by our enemies to be an true citizen of modern America. Does anyone doubt that someone who would stone a woman, deny schooling to girls, or turn the clock back to the dark ages, would take a false oath of allegiance to America?
We open our doors to anyone claiming political asylum or having the ability to climb tall fences.
Still, we welcome Muslims until Detroit has the largest population of Iraqis out side of Iraq.
When there is a home grown 9/11 attack, don't be surprised. We knew what they were.
