Washington Post Totally Knows How To Stop Islamic Terrorism

No, really, they do. Sarah Lyons-Padilla, a cultural psychologist or something, has the One True Answer, which was staring us in the face the whole time!

Want to stop Islamic terrorism? Be nicer to Muslims.
A warmer embrace could stop homegrown terrorism.


Fearful reactions to terrorist violence are nothing new. Incidents of extremist activity are often followed by anti-Islam protests or hate crimes. Reports of the Islamic State luring Western Muslims abroad are followed by a tightening of homeland security policy. Just after the attacks in Paris, presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that he would be willing to close mosques in America.

Such displays of intolerance can make Muslims feel like they don’t belong in Europe or the United States.

So, let me get this straight: by her own writing, the extremists attacked first, which made some people lash out in concern over Muslim violence, so, we’re supposed to be nicer to people who may want to kill us? It’s somehow intolerant to be mean to potential terrorists? I’d suggest Ms. Lyons-Padilla attempt this in an area controlled by ISIS. Or al Qaeda. Boko Horam. The Taliban. Or one of the numerous Islamic extremist groups.

Our research, forthcoming in Behavioral Science and Policy, and in partnership with the World Organization for Resource Development and Education, shows that making Muslims feel this way can fuel support for radical movements. In other words, many Western policies that aim to prevent terrorism may actually be causing it.

It’s all psychological Leftist mumbo jumbo, and a good reason why Liberals are not trusted on national security. They’re unserious, and refuse to acknowledge the reality of the situation, namely that leaders in the Islamic faith are indoctrinating Muslims into the more hardcore version of Islam. It doesn’t make all of them jihadis and terrorists, but more and more are being radicalized into believing in the hardcore version.

Reading the rest, digging into the details, what this is really all about is taking in the refugees from Middle East and other Muslim areas and “making them feel welcome”. It’s about supporting Obama.

If anyone thinks that just being nicer to people who attack us, as well as use or laws, Constitution, and social mores to undermine our society, will work, well, no one should take you seriously. Ever.

    The hallmark of modern leftism is their absolute refusal to process facts that conflict with their worldview.

    But Teach, isn’t it about time we stopped shaming Islamic terrorists and said something positive about Islamic terrorism?

    Besides cities, like say St. Louis, are so crowded that a little Islamic terrorism could help with their traffic congestion and that would help fight global warming.
    Because we all know global warming is the real threat to the U.S. and the world.

    Islamic terrorism will stop global warming and isn’t that a good thing?

  3. My own philosophy towards terrorism is more along the lines of George Patton, William T. Sherman and Curtis Lemay. Our ememies should fear us. We will never be safe otherwise.
