Wrong War?

The following is an excerpt from an August 31 article in ChronWatch By Raymond Kraft:

"Terror" is merely a tactic, and "terrorism" a strategic philosophy - it is not the driving force. It is the tool, not the carpenter. It is the hammer, not the man who swings the hammer. We cannot win a war against the hammer without winning a war against the man who swings the hammer. But to do this, we must know him, we must recognize him, we must see him for who and what he is, we must name him, and then we must make war against him, Islamic Nazism, and not merely against the hammer, the tool, the acts of terror, the acts of the man who swings the hammer. To win, you must know your enemy for what he is, not for what we wish him to be. And no euphemism of "Islamo-Fascism" can make the Islamic Resistance Movement, the Wahhabist Jihad, anything but the resurgence and re-emergence of Nazism ideologically married to puritanical Islam. Islamic Nazism.

We do not quite want to see what confronts us, not even in the spotlight of Muhammed's words:

"And when the sacred months are passed, kill those who join other gods with Allah wherever ye shall find them; and seize them, besiege them, and lay in wait for them with every kind of ambush; but if they convert and observe prayer, and pay the obligatory alms, then let them go their way, for Allah is Gracious, Merciful."
- Koran 9:5

"Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in Allah, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which Allah and his Apostles have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth (Islam), until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled. The Jews say, Ezra is a son of God; and the Christians say, The Messiah is a son of God. Such are the sayings in their mouths! They resemble the saying of the Infidels of old! Allah do battle with them! How are they misguided!"
- Koran 9:29

Kraft continues:
I am getting some liberal response to my [above excerpted] article at ChronWatch about Islamic Nazism - and some of these people give drivel a bad name. The intellectual vacuity is truly amazing. One of the defining attributes of the Liberal mind, it seems to me, [in addition to engaging in ad hominem arguments] is the inability to differentiate between one's personal, internal (emotional) state, or reality, and external, impersonal, objective reality - the Liberal mind merges the two and attributes its "internal reality" to external things. It is unable to distinguish between "how things are" and "how I feel about things."
