Islamist Terrorists Don't Recognize "Peace Activists"
Tom Fox Killed in Iraq ^ | March 11, 2006 | Andrew Jaffee

An American member of the Christian Peacemaker Team, (A left leaning liberal organization with some loose denominational ties – the man did not go to preach Christ or the gospel he went to preach humanism) Tom Fox, was found murdered in Iraq today. He was kidnapped by the Islamist-oriented group known as the Swords of Righteousness Brigades on November 26. Iraqi police reported that Fox had “gunshots to his head and chest and signs of torture on his body.”

This incident begs the question: Do the Islamist terrorists respect all the appeasement offered them by leftist peace activists like Tom Fox? The answer is a categorical “no,” “non,” “nein,” “нет,” “nr.”


Ezekiel 9:4-6 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof. and to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.


Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.


Daniel 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;


Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.


After all that has happened, the Left still ignores the threat of Islamism, appeasing militant Muslims just as Chamberlain and Lindberg placated Hitler. The appeasers are sticking their heads in the sand not because of noble sentiments. In reality, they are afraid, very afraid, of being blown up, and their fear overwhelms all sense of rationality.

Tom Fox went to Iraq to grovel before Iraq’s ultra-violent Islamist “insurgents,” seeking to convince them to give up a “cause” that they have no intention of ever abandoning. Fox could have done a cursory review of the current state of Islamism using a Google search before going to Iraq, but he went anyway. One may argue that he was brave — not afraid — but he was, in truth, utterly misguided and foolish.

Islamists massacred 344 civilians — half of them children — in Beslan, North Ossetia. They killed 62 in Delhi, India; murdered 50+ in Turkey; and have killed tens of thousands in Indonesia, Algeria, and Nigeria. Al-Qaeda slaughtered 88 innocent Egyptians last July 23.

1,095 innocent Israelis have been killed by Palestinian terrorists since September 2000. Thirty-thousand Iraqis, mostly Muslim, have been slaughtered by Islamist terrorists since the country’s liberation.

9/11 (3000 dead). Madrid (200 dead). London (50 dead). Bali (200 dead). Amman (57 dead). Three-hundred trampled to death in this year’s Hajj; 1,426 killed in the 1990 Hajj; 251 in 2004; etc. Sudanese Muslims have slaughtered 180,000 black Africans. Kuwaitis ethnically cleansed 400,000 Palestinians in 1991.

The bipartisan 9/11 Commission Report determined:

But the enemy is not just “terrorism,” some generic evil. This vagueness blurs the strategy. The catastrophic threat at this moment in history is more specific. It is the threat posed by Islamist terrorism–especially the al Qaeda network, its affiliates, and its ideology.

Before Fox was tortured and murdered by the people he fantasized as friends, he betrayed his white-guilt-inspired feelings:

It has become increasing evident to me that after stripping away all the rationales for the US invasion of Iraq, what is left is the reality that the current U.S. Administration felt compelled to invade from a basis of hate.

So Fox went to Iraq to fight supposed American hate and ended up getting killed by the people he saw as victims, not having hate, yet driven first and foremost by hatred. What an awful irony. And what foolish appeasement.
