An excellent article that lays it down pretty well.
“I have to tell you something which very few of you seem to comprehend. Your [Israel’s] bungling war against a few thousand Hizbullah fighters which you should have crushed no matter what, considering the importance of the outcome, has created a completely new situation, not only for this area, but globally. Your inept leadership totally misunderstood the importance of winning this war.
“As a matter of fact, the whole Moslem world, not only the Arabs, simply couldn’t believe that the mighty Israeli Army that defeated the combined Arab forces in six days in 1967, and almost captured Cairo and Damascus in 1973, couldn’t defeat a small army of Hizbullah men. As usual the Moslems see things the way they want to see things. Most think that the present generation of Israelis have gone soft and can be defeated.
“The American bungling of the war in Iraq only added to their conviction that victory not only over Israel but also over the West is not only possible, but certain. The ramifications of these two bungling wars may bring an Islamic bloody Tsunami all over the West, not only in Israel. The sharks smell blood and these two wars gave them the green light to attack sooner than they had in mind. Your problem is that you are on the defensive and they have the option to choose the time and the places when and where to attack and there is nothing much you can do about it.
“When will you Westerners realize that half-measures don’t work with people who are willing to die by the thousands for Allah to achieve their goal? In their eyes the Western World is simply an abomination on earth that has to be wiped out.
“The Americans, the Europeans, and even you Israelis really don’t know what it is all about, do you? During the last generation hundreds of thousands of children have been taught all over the Moslem world in Madrass schools to become martyrs for Allah in order to kill the infidels. These youngsters not only are ready to do it, but are actually in the process of doing it. Bombs are going off all over the world killing and maiming thousands of people, not only on 9/11 in the US, in London Madrid and Bali, but in Africa, India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and many other places. The first signs of the Islamic Tsunami are already here, but the West doesn’t understand, or doesn’t want to understand what is coming.
“don’t want to understand”
That a pretty telling point, isn’t it. I think one of the reasons the west is living in denial about this is because people do sense the danger that Islam presents, but are too afraid to face and deal with the reality of it. It’s the reason for the dhimmitude/appeasement of much of the west. Well, I have news for our western governments, and it’s all bad. Sticking your head in the sand and being politically correct will NOT change the facts of the barbarity of this evil religion, and won’t stop the terrorism. This religion doesn’t know the meaning of love, mercy and righteousness. It loves death and is willing to spread that around liberally with great enthusiasm.
