'We Will Kill It, or It Will Kill Us': Huckabee on Radical Islamic Hate
"Well, I'm just back from a week in Israel, where our friend and ally is recovering from horrific terrorist attacks from Hamas, launched from the Gaza Strip over nearly two months," Mike Huckabee said last night in his opening remarks.
"Hamas agreed to 11 different cease fire agreements and broke every one of them except the most recent. Sadly, many Americans think that what happens in and to Israel doesn't really matter to them. But the truth is, the hatred targeted toward Israel is the exact same hatred targeted toward Americans."
Huckabee asserted that the radical Islamic hate behind 9/11 is the same hate that resulted in the savage beheadings of two American journalists.
"Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and ISIS are all branches from the same sick tree," he said.
"It's been 13 years since radical Islamists flew airplanes into the twin towers and the Pentagon and would have flown another one probably into the US Capitol except for the heroism of passengers aboard United Flight 93. One wonders if in the 13 years, have we learned much about our real enemy?"
Huckabee pointed out that our enemy is global, not tribal. They are wreaking havoc in the Middle East, but the real target is Europe and then the grand prize, the United States.
"Sadly, the President openly admits he doesn't have a strategy to deal with groups like ISIS. Let me loan him one: you don't spare a moment nor any resources in eradicating these cancers on civilization."
Huckabee stated that a malignant tumor must be dealt with and "trying to contain radical Islamo-facists like ISIS, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda or Hezbollah, that’s as irrational as trying to sing lullabies to a malignancy, just hoping that it will go to sleep and stay quiet."
"I know it sounds harsh, but when religious fanatics openly state they want to kill us all and prove it by videotaping the beheadings of American journalists, we'd better wake up," Huckabee warned.
"The anniversary of 9/11 this week is a good time to remember that the murdering mad dogs that committed those acts are of the same blood of the ones firing rockets into Israel, kidnapping young girls and raping them, shooting Israeli informants in the head behind a mosque."
"Politicians pretending that they really aren't religious fanatics are somehow believing we can talk sense into them. That means someone needs to talk sense into the politicians. I wish we could send a diplomat to handle this. But we'd better send some people dropping bombs, shooting rifles and machine guns and throwing grenades. Because we are dealing with a cancer. We will kill it, or it will kill us. I vote we kill the cancer."
