NATO worried that Libya will turn to sharia-compliant Islam

Well, what have I been saying all this time?  I guess you did not get the memo I sent.  Yes the Islamists and jihadists are well on their way to seize power and then we will be utterly baffled in what to do next. We expect an outcome based in faulty thinking but we do not know, or do not care that that there is a way out of this miasma.  Accept that Islam is a global problem and deal with it as you would any other global threat.  Swift.  Crushing.  Victory.

We cannot afford to stay blind to the enemy and we must see it and speak it at every turn.  To do otherwise means our certain demise.

Libya could fall into hands of extremists, Nato warns  

Libya is in danger of falling into the hands of Islamic extremists if a stable government is not rapidly established, Nato’s secretary-general warned last night.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Islamic extremists would “try to exploit” any weaknesses created as the country tried to rebuild after four decades of Col Muammar Gaddafi’s rule.
Mr Rasmussen was speaking amid growing evidence of splits in the rebel leadership in Tripoli. His words will cast a damper over the euphoria sweeping Tripoli in the wake of the revolution.
His warning came as the head of the National Transitional Council, Mustafa Abdul Jalil, told cheering crowds in Tripoli that Islamic shariah law would be the “main source” of legislation in the new Libya.
Mr Jalil, who only arrived in his new capital on Saturday, made his first public speech in Martyrs’ Square - once Col Gaddafi’s “Green Square” - last night.
“We are a Muslim people, for a moderate Islam, and we will stay on this road,” he said. His formulation suggested that Libya would follow neighbours such as Egypt in allowing room for secular freedoms.
But there are already signs that the rebel leadership is split over a variety of issues including the future role of the Islamist militias which played a significant part in the revolution.
Mahmoud Jibril, the interim Libyan prime minister, also arrived in Tripoli at the end of last week after complaints that he had been too busy travelling the world to lead his own revolution. On Sunday night he was forced to announce that his first government reshuffle would take place in seven to ten days.
Asked if Nato was worried that a delay in setting up a fully fledged new government increased the risk of extremists taking control, Mr Rasmussen said: “We cannot exclude the possibility that extremists will try to exploit a situation and take advantage of a power vacuum.”

NATO is JUST figuring out that extremists mean to install Islamic/Shariah based government in Libya? Does anyone with half a brain really think that the so called "Arab Spring" was and is a fight to establish democracy and freedom throughout the Middle East?
Islam means submission and Islam will continue to murder, subjugate, terrorize and make war against any nation and its people who do not submit to the precepts of Mohammed and the Quran.
All foreign policy should be grounded in a thorough understanding of the Quran, the Hadiths, the Sunna and the history of Islam. Without that knowledge, policy makers and governments are operating blindly, and they falsely assume that negotiations with Islamists will be successful. The long and violent history of Islam proves that negotiations, treaties, peace talks and summits are worthless. Islam will always do and will ONLY do, what is best for Islam and for Muslims.
I had the opportunity to read about the Armenian Massacres in 1915 by the Ottoman Turks. If anyone would like a preview of what will happen to Israel if Arabs ever gain control of the Jewish state, please see:

Islam is no different in the 21st century, than it was in 1915. By its very definition Islam can NOT and will NEVER change. Islam is believed to be the religion handed down intact and in completion to the Muslims by God. Therefore nothing can be added nor subtracted to Islam.
Anyone expecting mercy by 21st century Islam is deluded or deceptive.
