Addendum: Spencer, give us your suggested solutions please.
This Addendum should be read after my immediately previous essay.
I notice a day later, in the Comments field of the Jihad Watch article which was the subject of my above-linked essay, a regular reader (“The Texican”) of Jihad Watch adverted directly to the eminently reasonable question (addressed to Robert Spencer) from another long-time regular reader (“Infidel Pride”) of Jihad Watch which I discussed in my above-linked essay.
The Texican quoted Infidel Pride’s eminently reasonable question, then proceeded to amplify it in terms that anyone with a lick of common sense would recognize as pertinent and elementary, and then asked Robert Spencer the question that was obviously implied by Infidel Pride’s question, but which Spencer arrogantly and preposterously ignored.
I quote The Texican’s comment in full (all the following in italics):
6. Neither Hugh nor I wish the conflict between the West and the Islamic world to continue, expand, or be enflamed.
Why not, if one may ask?

Quite obviously, because we want it to be over, with Islamic jihadists posing no threat to the West.

Just how do you think that the spread of the violent islam will be stopped?
Diplomatic means? When the mosques across the world spew out hatred against the West and the great Satan America and demand the destruction and conquering of both.
History has shown the only way to stop the spread of violent islam is by greater and deadlier force.
This is not the first time that islam has endeavored to spread it filth across the world. Every previous time, a country has arose to defeat the violent spread of islam.
So, Robert, how do you think the violent spread of islam will be stopped?
Live Free and Die Free.
God Family America Freedom the only choice at an cost.

Back to me now:
I.e., The Texican is asking Spencer to explain his unacceptably terse response to Infidel Pride of the day before. Spencer essentially responded to Infidel Pride’s question (Why should we not wish for the conflict with Islam to expand?) with the preposterous non-answer of: “Because we wish to see the problem of Islam vanish without anyone getting hurt”—and Spencer has the gall over the years to repeatedly chide and mock the historical appeasers of Hitler!? News flash, Spencer: It is extremely unlikely that the problem of Islam is going to vanish without people—a tragically high number of people—getting hurt.
The Texican’s question, while too polite for my taste given the arrogant preposterousness of Spencer, is pertinently focused and impervious to further weaseling from Spencer—that is, if Spencer deigns to respond to it. I predict he will simply ignore the question as that thread gathers dust in the Jihad Watch archives.
