American's Restraint is Remarkable

by Dr. Jack Sternberg, Contributing Author: Easter has come and gone but not without further vicious attacks on Christians and Christianity. In Yemen, radical Islamic terrorists of ISIS crucified a Catholic priest on Good Friday after kidnapping him from an old people's home where they also shot and killed four nuns. Why? Just because they were Christians; infidels. On Sunday, in Lahore, Pakistan, at a playground where Christians were enjoying Easter, a suicide bomber killed seventy children and their mothers. Why? Just because they were Christian; infidels. Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that the U.S. government now has declared that ISIL is committing genocide against Yazidis, Christians and Shia Muslims. It’s about time but what difference will that announcement make?

Since 9/11, there have been 28042 Islamic Terrorists attacks throughout the world. In just the last 30 days, there have been 147 Islamic Terrorists attacks with 1165 killed and 3221 injured. These were carried out by 36 suicide blasts in 25 different countries (Reference:

Besides the 3000 killed in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, a number of other terrorist attacks and killings have occurred over the last fifteen years in the United States. None of us have any idea or data concerning how many attacks have been averted or thwarted by local police, the FBI and Homeland Security since these occurrences are essentially kept secret. We might all be shocked to find out how many there have almost been.

So, why have I entitled this message, “American’s Restraint Is Remarkable?” (I will even add Western Europeans and especially the restraint of Jewish Israelis). Answer: It’s because of what we haven’t done in response to our entire civilization, culture and religion being attacked and threatened repeatedly by radical Islam.

Here’s a theoretical scenario by comparison. What if an attack occurred in one of many predominately Muslim Arab countries? During the attack, dozens of Muslims, whether Shia or Sunni, have been killed. A group of Christians, responding to the repeated killings of their people, proudly claim responsibility. They also promise more terrorist attacks and killings. Can you imagine what would happen next? The Imams would preach to their people that the infidels Christians have attacked Islam, Mohammed and Allah. They would issue Fatwas to kill all Christians in the name of Allah.

I believe there would immediately be a total annihilation, a holocaust, a genocide of every Christian living in every Muslim country. There would be increased attacks on Christians in non-Muslim countries. I also believe this is the answer to why Christians in Muslim countries have not fought back when attacked by Muslims. They know the horrific inevitable consequences.

Now, despite what CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations) and other Muslim groups claim, since 9/11 there has not been widespread discrimination and anti-Muslim attacks in the United States (or Europe) against Muslims or Mosques. According to the FBI, in 2014, 57% of Anti-Religious Hate Crimes targeted Jews (647 instances) with only 16% targeting Muslims (184 instances). In reality, these are just a few episodes out of a population of 320 million Americans.

That is what I find remarkable. This is what I call civilization and civilized people. We continue to have Muslim friends and we go to Muslim doctors. For the most part, we don’t indiscriminately hate but focus our anger only on those who actually commit atrocities. This is why we all should be proud of who we are. We’re not Islamophobic but we do fear those who wish to harm us.

Yet, what I fear is what could happen if terrorist activity increases in the United States. What if, God forbid, bombs blew up in crowded areas of shopping malls, in the middle of Times Square or at local high school football games? What if, as in Israel today, people on the streets of America where indiscriminately attacked (stabbed or shot) by radical Muslims, yelling Allahu Akbar (“God is Great”). Remember, it is estimated that 32% if American households have at least one firearm with 270 million firearms owned by Americans. How long would Americans continue to remain passive, rather than reacting, if they feared for their daily safety, because of the actions of one religious group of people? Even civilized people have their limits.

Maybe this is what ISIS wants and is trying to achieve. I hope and pray we can somehow stop them before they get their wish.
