God is great

I realize this is only two words in Arabic, but that was my first gut instinct. That this man, warning his Grandfather about a future of Islamic dominance, still cannot quell the urge to say these words in praise of Islam's God.

President Hillary Clinton. And may God have mercy on our souls.

"Islam delenda est"

That should seriously chill anyone with the liberal-left sensibilities of the narrator.

"Kill them all."

It is the same solution presented by Kurtz in _Heart of Darkness_ and in _Apocalypse Now._

I guessed the same as Billy- NYC.

"eat my Shorts"?
This is probably very good writing and all, but I don't think there are all that many people out there anymore with illusions about Islam. At least not in the red states. Maybe a lot who won't admit it.

I would have to disagree; I think there are a lot of people who think there are a lot of more serious problems than the entire religion of Islam.

two other possibilities:
Jerusalem, Mecca, Medina [destroyed in that order, leading to a true uprising of the "arab street."

air borne rabies [a terrorist form of rabies might not lead to the predicted future- if anything, it would be significantly worse]

I think the three words are:

"It will happen."

"Drink more Ovaltine."

Yes, that's right, the time traveller was a crummy commercial!

"Bush was right."

Would definitely disturb me for the rest of my life...
