I feel I need to correct a few of the statements made by the well intentioned, well informed and generally excellent point of view of Rep. Gohmert.
To his first point, if there were ‘peace loving muslims’ in Nigeria, they would have stopped Boko Haram the way the Israelis stop factions of Jews who decide to go all vigilante or Christians when they denounce psychos who lone-wolf out on doctors etc.
On to his second point. This religious war does in fact need to happen. The reason I say that is the muslim side is already at full scale war against the non-muslim side. They are attacking villages, taking slaves, slaughtering Churches full of people at every opportunity. The only reason, and let me stress only, that this war is not happening now, is because the other side is not fighting back. The consequences of that in the medium and long term are not hard to calculate. Rep. Gohmert says this war does not need to happen. I beg to differ. The options given to Nigeria and the non-Muslims are the classical Islamic ones.
1. Convert to Islam. Kick up a fifth of your booty to the Caliph and live under the sharia
2. Live as dhimmis. A kind of second class semi-slave non-citizen at the mercy of every whim of any muslim. As the Christians in Pakistan are now, and as any non-Muslim living in Saudi Arabia would be if there were any left.
To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill:
“You were given the choice between war and dhimmitude. You chose dhimmitude and you will have war.”
I think its important we do not repeat this error.
