We live in an ever increasingly dangerous world. Violent, radical Islamic extremists are beheading, burning, crucifying and committing genocide at an ever alarming rate. It’s spread is speeding up, not slowing down. We saw similar trends in the run up to WWII. The west almost lost that war because we waited too long to recognize the danger.
I pray for peace. May God give us the strength, courage and wisdom we need.
Anyone who has actually studied the period that led up to World War II knows that the Western democracies followed feckless policies remarkably similar to those that we are following today. And anyone who studies that war itself knows that the West came dangerously close to losing it before finally getting their act together and turning things around.
In a nuclear age, we may not have time to let reality finally sink in on our leaders and wake up the public to the dangers.
