On Saturday night, Omar Mateen was a loner and a loser.

he was immortal, by his standards, a hero. Mateen had ended his life in a blaze
of gunfire and glory. Now everybody knew his name.

He had been embraced
by ISIS. His face was on every TV screen. His 911 call to Orlando police
identifying with the Islamic State and the Tsarnaev brothers of the Boston
Marathon massacre was being heard across America.

He was being called the
most successful Islamist terrorist since 9/11. A hater of homosexuals, Mateen
had, all alone, massacred more than four dozen patrons at a gay Florida
nightclub, wounded 53, and driven deeper the wedges breaking up America. When it
was learned that he used an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, America's gun wars were

And make no mistake. There are out there in society some few
looking at what Mateen did, and how he left this world, not in revulsion and
disgust but admiration and awe.

Omar Mateen will not lack for emulators.
While we see him as a sick and crazed mass murderer, some will see him, as he
surely saw himself, as a warrior for Islam and Muslim martyr who earned

Yet, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama seemed either unable to
recognize the roots of Mateen's malice, or they were inhibited from identifying
those roots by the commands of political correctness.

The president
called this "an act of hate," but declined to name the source of the hatred or
motive for the massacre.

Where did Omar Mateen learn to hate not just
homosexuality but the homosexuals themselves? Where did he come to believe that
they deserved to die and he had a right to kill them?

Where might he have
gotten such ideas? Who teaches this?

Well, not only do the Taliban and
ISIS hurl homosexuals off buildings and stone them to death but 10 nations —
Mauritania, Niger, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE, Yemen
and Pakistan — impose the death penalty for homosexual acts.

Peoples of
these nations approve, for such laws find sanction in the holy book, the Quran.
Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by

Clinton declared that we must redouble our efforts to work with
"our allies and partners" to go after international terror groups.

she have in mind the Saudis and Gulf Arabs?

For they have on their books
laws calling for beheading the same sort of people Mateen shot to death at the
Pulse club in Orlando, and for the same reason — what it is they do.

A co-worker said Mateen had
an abiding rage over the behavior of American women. Where did Mateen get that

After San Bernardino, where an ISIS-adoring Pakistani woman and her
husband perpetrated a massacre, Donald Trump called for a ban on Muslims
entering the United States, until they could be better vetted, and we "can
figure out what the hell is going on,"

This was regarded as
quintessentially un-American.

But "refugees" from the Syrian war have
been found abetting Islamist atrocities in Paris. Terror cells containing
"refugees" from Syria's civil war have been discovered in Angela Merkel's

We are learning that second-generation Muslims like Mateen seem
susceptible to Islamist imams preaching terror against the West to advance the
restoration of the caliphate.

Does this not suggest a pause, and a long
hard look before we continue with a policy of warmly welcoming all refugees
fleeing the half-dozen wars roiling the Islamic world?

After World War
II, we vetted German and East European migrants to ensure they were not fleeing
Nazis or Soviet saboteurs or spies.

No one seemed to regard that as

Devout Muslims believe there is "no God but Allah, and
Muhammad is his Prophet." Logically then, Muslim nations reject a "First
Amendment" in their own societies that would protect a right of Christians to
convert Muslims, or any "freedom of speech" that permits the mockery of

The iconoclasts at Charlie Hebdo learned that the penalty for
blasphemy against Islam or insulting the prophet can be severe.

"East is
East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till Earth and Sky stand
presently at God's great Judgment Seat."

So wrote Kipling. Islam, not
only in its extremist forms but in its pure form, is incompatible with modern
Western democracy.

And the conflict appears irreconcilable.

policy that should result from this reality is that while we fight side-by-side
to annihilate our common enemies, ISIS and al-Qaida, the West should give up the
idea of democratization and secularization of the Islamic world.

those who believe Islam is the one true faith, to which all of mankind must
eventually submit, should be told that they are welcome as visitors — but not as
immigrants. For that would ensure endless conflict.

The more Islamic the
West becomes, the less it remains the West.
