It’s rare that a Muslim nation is several steps ahead of America. It’s also rare that a Muslim nation gets it and we don’t. But when even Tunisia–the former lair of the P.L.O.–is taking drastic-but-necessary steps to stop jihadists from within, maybe we should take note. Sadly, America will never have the guts to do this, when even Tunisia now has the guts. Maybe we should take a hint.
Tunisian authorities say all mosques and media calling for jihad are to be immediately closed in a bid to end a radical movement they fear will derail the nation’s move to democracy. A statement early Sunday announced the closing of mosques operating outside control of the Religious Affairs Ministry and places of worship that celebrated the killings last week of 15 Tunisian soldiers near the Algerian border. The government also announced the closing of unlicensed TV and radio stations that call for jihad and declare some people infidels.
On Saturday, police arrested some 60 suspected Islamist radicals in sweeps through numerous regions. The crackdown follows the attacks on two army posts on Mount Chaambi by an extremist group believed linked to al-Qaida’s North Africa arm.
Of course, in America, we don’t care much about democracy and foolishly think we’ll have it forever. So, we don’t arrest jihadists all over America who regularly preach for our destruction. Nope. Presidents Obama and Bush invite them to White House Ramadan Iftar dinners instead.
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Oh, and by the way, who needs jihadist TV and radio stations when you have Al-Jazeera veteran and HAMAS sharmutah [whore] Ayman Mohyeldin “reporting” for NBC News from Gaza. Same difference.
