KIRSTERS BAISH| As a child, my family took a wonderful trip to Rome, where we indulged in the culture of such a beautiful and historical city. So much of Western civilization has ties all the way back to ancient Rome. For thousands of years, Rome has been the epicenter of culture, art, fine dining, and education. Even though there were emperors who displayed great acts of evil, Rome will always be remembered for the positive effects it has had on the world.
Although Rome isn’t the only ancient city that contributed great things to our modern world, it is one of the most well-known. All around Europe there are centers of Western culture, which unfortunately many Americans do not get the chance to experience. America was built on the progress of these very civilizations, and it is extremely important for us to preserve these ancient cities.
You may not know it, but there is a huge threat to the people in these ancient cities. ISIS has just issued a direct threat to the city of Rome, stating that they will completely annihilate the city. The mayor of Rome responded in the only logical way, by closing off all immigration to Rome entirely. We sincerely hope that other Western officials will follow her example.
Globalist leaders all across the world and terrorist groups such as ISIS have begun to work towards their goal of launching a worldwide Islamic Caliphate. It is clear to see that if Western countries don’t work quickly to stop the spread of radical Islam, we will be facing the downfall of the entire world. Terror attacks happen on a daily basis in countries with open borders.
Liberals are not putting emphasis on how dangerous these Muslim terrorists are in an attempt to push their own political agenda. The religious war ISIS intending to pursue against Christians is extremely serious, and should be taken as thus.
The following is a passage from the ISIS manifesto. Their plan to destroy Rome is evident:
“It will be broken and defeated, just as all your previous campaigns were broken and defeated, except that this time we will raid you thereafter, and you will never raid us. We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted. This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise. If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”
We need to come together to let ISIS know that these threats of violence will not be tolerated.
The Mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, knew that ISIS directly threatened her city, and as a result she did what she had to do to protect the people of Rome.
These Islamic terrorists must be defeated. Leaving our borders open is definitely not the way to do that. Mayor Raggi understands that in order to keep people safe, we must take proper measures by keeping those who are trying to harm others out.
Let’s hope that more Western leaders will work towards securing borders and reclaiming peace of mind that people are safe.
