Reader comment on: When "Peace" Means Capitulation to Islam
Submitted by Nic Harvard, Jan 8, 2017 12:00
As a veteran of a number of long running "skirmishes " in Southern Africa, I totally understand the psychological aspects of all three parties - the third force being peacekeepers.
The issue with fundamental Islam is neither its implacable nature, nor its "hydra" nature- both can be dealt with by treating this as an extended family blood feud, where the issue is decided by destruction of one family or the other.
The issue is a lack of understanding and moral or political will in the west
So on the side of the radical moslems, we have several hundred "families" each with their own agenda, but loosely united against a perceived common enemy.
One the other side, we have one family who are lazy and divided, fat and happy.
The strategy of any one of the islamists need only to succeed once, while one the other side it needs to succeed numerous times.
This is not going to be quick.
If someone performs a suicide attack, you do not bomb the city they came from.
