Moussaoui Jury Fails
Via Drudge Report
This is exactly what I feared. In my March 15 post I said ,
"Here is a clear example of why treating terrorism as a crime instead of an act of war puts us all in danger. A man associated with al-Qaeda and part of the 9/11 plot is treated like a criminal, with all the rights of say, a burglar, or a drug dealer. But lets face facts, Moussaoui and his ilk want to kill as many Americans as possible. The American justice system is not designed to deal with the horrific dealings of the modern terrorist. Al-Qaeda wants to destroy the United States. Members of al-Qaeda need to be treated as prisoners of war, threats to National Security, not just suspects."
This life sentence is a huge victory for the mujahideen, and will be viewed as yet another sign of a weakened West that has lost it's resolve. Moussaoui will be lionized by our enemies in prison where he can pratice dawa, (Islamic Prostletyzing) and communicate to the outside. Under the watchful eye of Amnesty International and the ACLU to make sure his rights are in tact. Be it true or not, the perception that America and it's allies are at each others throats over the war and lack the resolve to execute the "20th highjacker" will be a positive recuiting tool for al-Qaeda.
The current American attitude seems to be that "we are the nice people, we can't stoop to their level". This is a strategy for failure. No one will win a war by treating it's enemies as if they are citizens. Moussaoui is an Enemy POW and should be treated like one. Otherwise it isn't a "War On Terror", but a lot like law enforcement aided by a judicial system that has no expertise in National Security
or military matters. These are better left to , you guessed it! The military.
This inability to deal with the danger that faces us is the direct result of our denial of Islams' violent jihad against America. The American tradition of religous tolerance has accepted Muslim's who have emigrated here and allowed them to practice their faith freely. But not all religions are created equal, some are recognized as cults. The faith that is founded by a murderous pedephile bent on the geneocide of the Jews and submission of the rest of the planet's population, (Koran :191,192,193) needs to be assigned cult status, and those who will bring up arms against us in the name of this cult need to be killed.
9:30 And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!
