The Neosecularist

I Said That? Yeah, I Said That!

Archive for the tag “Middle East”

Thank You, James Zogby! (For Your Patently Biased, Offensive And Stupid Observation About President Romney)

To paraphrase – with one factually wrong, decidedly insensitive, and patently biased comment, Arab American Institute President, James Zogby, and liberal aspirant, is doing more to focus attention away from the devastating impact Palestinian culture has had on the Palestinian economy and its own people for well over two decades, the result of which (should Zogby’s despicable propaganda mesmerize the masses of Palestinians he caters to) can only stymie development in that region for more decades to come.

James Zogby, being of Arab descent, (his father came to America illegally, from Lebanon, and Zogby was born in New York) and having a liberal mindset, and bias against Israel, (probably a personal hatred too), and writing for the “Arianna Nation” severely scolds soon to be President Romney for his “patently bias comment” he made about Palestinian culture, which was neither patently biased nor anywhere near off the mark.  In fact, when Romney blamed Palestinian culture for its own economic woes, Romney hit a grand slam.  Zogby, conversely, in his pathetic diatribe, struck out.

Says Zogby:

Romney’s observation that “culture makes all the difference,” which he offered as his explanation for the disparities between the Israeli and Palestinian economies, was so remarkably out of touch with reality that it set off an unprecedented explosion of press commentary in the United States and Europe.”

Since Palestinian culture only lives to destroy Israel, and since Palestinian terrorists have had, and continue to have a long history of hostility and violence against Israel; since its own faux government, whether that be Hamas or the PLO, both openly supports terrorist activities against Israel and Israeli citizens; since there is no real Palestinian nation, but a mere collection of people living in and around Israel, who identify themselves as Palestinians; since these people who call themselves Palestinians are wont to kill all Jews and overtake Jerusalem and all of Israel distinctly because of their culture and their cultural upbringing, what Romney said about Palestinian culture was right – and Zogby knows it!

Zogby speaks of  “an unprecedented explosion of press commentary in the United States and Europe.”  Well, to be exact, Romney’s “observation” set off an avalanche, “explosion” of hate-filled criticism throughout the liberal Main Stream Media (MSM) in America and around the world.  Who is surprised by that?  Who is baffled that liberals in America and around the world, most of whom also hate Jews and Israel, would condemn Romney for pointing out an obvious fact and truth about a deviant, childish, malevolent and very violent culture such as that of the Palestinians?

Most of the United States’s (sic) major daily newspapers featured articles, commentary and even editorials taking issue with the Romney quote — highlighting repressive Israeli policies, and not an “inferior culture” as the reason for the poor performance of the Palestinian economy.”

Well, duh!  It’s only the liberal media “taking issue”.  Of course, to the liberal media, the very thought of Israel protecting itself against such an “inferior culture” as that of the Palestinians, who have not stopped, nor will they stop, attacking Israel, would be shocking.  The only product the Palestinians manufacture, create and sell is terrorists and terrorism.  If a Palestinian even has a job, it is most likely as a terrorist.  If the Palestinians even have schools, can anyone imagine what is being taught?

Zogby completely ignores history when he writes:

in 1994 the Palestinian economy received a devastating hit resulting from the Israeli closure of the territories. The “closure,” which cut Palestinians off from Greater Jerusalem, and severely limited interaction between Palestinians and Israel, was initially imposed as a temporary “preventive measure” in the wake of the massacre of Palestinians committed by an Israeli settler in Hebron. The “temporary closure” never ended.

That massacre was initiated by Baruch Goldstein, and not only was it condemned by Israel, but its own cabinet expelled an extreme right-wing Kach party over its support of Goldstein’s actions that left dozens of Palestinians dead.  In other words, Israeli culture openly condemned acts of terrorism against Palestinians.  Where has Palestinian culture ever condemned acts of terrorism against Israelis?

And why does anyone think Zogby might have omitted those facts from his Romney- Israeli bashing article?

Israel, and its culture, which is far superior to anything in or around the Middle East, is the only think keeping the Middle East from imploding on itself.  If the Palestinians were to stop their acts of terrorism and violence against Israel; if the Palestinians were sincerely interested in peace with Israel, Israel would be more than happy to reopen itself, its borders, to the Palestinian people; to its economy and its culture.  Palestinians don’t want that.  Palestinians want all Jews dead and to take control of Israel for themselves.  That is who the Palestinians are, and that is their culture.  And James Zogby knows it!

Until the Palestinian economy divests itself from terrorism, from the manufacturing, selling and exploitation of terrorism, it will not have an economy worthy of supporting.  And until the Palestinian people, within their culture, renounces its goal of total annihilation for Israel, they will continue to live and die in the poverty they themselves created from their own deep-seeded hate.  And James Zogby knows it!

What is the rest of the Arab world doing to help the Palestinians, to shoulder some of the responsibilities and help Palestinians out of poverty and into jobs?  What is the hapless, useless United Nations doing?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

With the exception of blood money, and that money used specifically to fuel terrorism and terrorist activities, how much money has the Arab world contributed to the Palestinians to help create jobs, spur new business ventures and economic growth?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

How much land has the Arab world agreed to donate (or even sell at a reasonable price) to its Muslim and Islamic brethren for a Palestinian State of its own?  Nothing.  And James Zogby knows it!

And so, for pointing out, yet again, just how deeply biased liberals such as yourself are against Israel; how much you truly despise Israel and self-loving Jews (as opposed to self-hating Jews); enough to have gone to the “Arianna Nation” to post your anti-Romney, anti-Israel diatribe, thank you, James Zogby, for best illustrating patent and blatant absurdity, which is the cornerstone of liberalism.

Doesn’t James Zogby know that?

U.S., Britain Ought To Wipe The “Proud” Off The Face Of Iran

UPDATEHere Is another reason why we ought to wipe the “proud” off of Iran.

Someone ought to wipe the “proud” off the face of writer, Simon Jenkins, as well, while they’re at it.  Britain yet has a brain which has not been corrupted by leftists and inside traitors in Britain.  There is still moral courage, stamina and determination in Britain, despite being daily pummeled by the enemies of reason within which ever desire to provoke the people, goad them into selling their last vestiges of human resolve.  Britain sees how much stronger Iran is, or thinks it is, now that Libya, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, and other Middle East nations have been weakened by internal revolt, Arab Spring it is often called.  Britain has a choice.  Do nothing and let Iran march towards the Armageddon Iran wants with the world, or – stop Iran before it is too late.  That is the answer to Simon Jenkins question as to why Britain is “ramping up sanctions against Iran“.

Jenkins calls Iran a “proud” country.  Well, yes, Iran is very “proud” in the sense of being arrogant, and Iran is pleased with itself for being so arrogant.  But Iran is also “proud’ in the sense of its anti-humane accomplishments with regards to how it treats women, Christians, Jews, gays and anyone not Muslim or who refuses to convert to Islam.  Iran is “proud” to be anti-Israel.  Iran is “proud” to be a haven for terrorists and terrorism and all the evil exploits they would conduct against America, Israel, Britain and anywhere else in the world not conscripted into radical Islamic jihadism.  Iran is “proud” it is attempting to develop nuclear weapons which it might then use as leverage against Israel, America and all of Britain’s allies.  And for some strange, delusional, unexplainable reason, Jenkins is “proud” of Iran, for what it is, for what it stands for, for what it hopes to be, to accomplish and to gain.  And Jenkins is “proud” of himself for being so “proud” of a “proud” Iran.  Else, why would he be such an ardent, a “proud”, apologist for a country that hates, despises and outlaws the very existence and thought of individual freedom and liberty?

Simon asks:

Do any of Britain’s leaders really think further economic sanctions will stop Iran’s nuclear programme?

Iran and it’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, are hell bent on creating a nuclear program and nuclear weapons of extreme mass destruction, period.  Sanction alone, naturally, will not prevent them from slowing their progress.  Sanctions will stop the flow of legal monies entering Iran; it will stop the flow of commerce and trade, except for the nations allied with Iran.  Sanctions will perhaps slow Iran’s abilities to produce a nuclear weapon, but sanctions will not stifle Iran’s resolute ambition.  Iran has secret partners and secret travel routes in which to get the necessary ingredients for making nuclear weapons into Iran.  Sanctions, we understand, are not the solution by a long shot.  Sanctions only curtail the inevitable.  As Jenkins makes note:

Sanctions have been imposed on Iran for 33 years because there was nothing else to do. They have done no good and almost certainly been counterproductive in reinforcing autocracy.

Indeed, sanction would not deter a “proud” Iran from its ultimate goal.  So what is Jenkin’s advocating?  If not sanctions, what?  What is it about leftists anywhere in the world who see apathy and indecision, and doing nothing, as the best, the only, productive alternative?

Sanctions did not topple Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milosevic or Muammar Gaddafi.

But war and revolt did.  Not apathy or indecision, not pacifism, and certainly not “peace” talk.  So what is Simon’s point?  War, rebellion and action toppled these evil dictators.  All sanctions ever do is stall for time, and give evil dictators the time they need to prepare for whatever madness they have cooked up.  So, why is Jenkins so stubborn about sanctions against Iran?

With an election in the offing, President Obama must show America’s pro-Israel lobby that he is tough somewhere in the Middle East.

Could it be that Jenkins is really an anti-Semite and he know that sanctions will hinder Iran’s plot to destroy Israel?  Could it be that Jenkins wants Iran to complete its mission of creating a nuclear weapon so it might point it at Israel, hold it hostage, blackmail America and Britain into bowing down before Iran?  Could it be that Jenkins is so anti-American, so pro-socialism, he is willing to see Iran become a nuclear nation so that Iran might further diminish America’s righteous role in the world in spreading freedom and true democracy, which is counter to socialism and its agenda?  And once Iran has nuclear weapons, who will prevent it from selling them to Hamas, the PLO, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, or any other terrorist group or regime hostile to America?

Any fool may say, you cannot be too careful. It is the motto of the arms race. Israel has a nuclear capability for that reason, and that is why Iran wants one. A pre-emptive Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear plants might postpone their work, but make eventual war more likely.

If but for the fact there is a liberal Democrat in the white house, a military coward, Israel probably would have struck against Iran by now.  Israel cannot be so certain that such a weak President as Barack Obama would not condone it for defending its nation, its people.  Israel cannot be certain just how close Obama is to its enemies.

Although Israel has nuclear capability, aside from its fledgling alliance with America, that is the only other reason why Iran, or any other anti-Israel regime in the Middle east has not yet invaded Israel.  Iran wants nuclear weapons to even the playing field.  Iran has no compassion for humankind, no sympathy or sorrow for the human beings it now allows to be murdered in the name of Islam and Sharia law.  Iran has no feelings of sadness for the millions of people it would kill in a nuclear strike.  Israel, however, does have a heart.  That is why Israel does not use the nuclear weapons it now possesses.  But so long as Israel does possess nuclear weapons, so long as America remains an ally of Israel, (and under a conservative Republican administration that alliance will be much stronger) Iran will think very hard about striking Israel.  But once Iran gains nuclear weapons, Iran will not care.  Iran has no human emotions regarding the sanctity of life.  Therein lies the difference between Iran and Israel and Jenkins’ perverted leftism and what is common decency and rationality.

I would prefer it if Iran had no such missiles, but that is hardly for Britain to say when it demands “the right” to its own.

Nuclear missiles in the hands of Iran is a far greater threat to the world and to world peace than nuclear missiles in the hands of Britain.  Jenkins seems to believe that Iran has a “right” to nuclear weapons the same as any sane nation.  But Iran, of course, is not a sane nation.  Why can’t Jenkins differentiate between sane and insane?  Perhaps, as a leftist, Jenkins’ mind had warped the two concepts into one meaning.  A trick leftists use to justify their own madness.  If sane and insane can mean the same thing, if sane can also be insane, and insane can be sane, then there is no right or wrong, and everyone is free to believe and to do as they wish.  That’s the motto of hippies, who are themselves leftists.

Economic sanctions are coward’s diplomacy. They purport to high moral stance but are merely a low-risk way of bullying the world. The danger is that they encourage militarist lobbies to escalate the steps that lead to open conflict.

Absolutely agreed.  But if not sanction, if not war, then what is left to do?

But usually the answer to “what to do” about foreign regimes of which we disapprove is, quite simply, to do nothing.

That was America’s response to Hitler, for some years.  It was a long time before America finally “did something”.  And that was only after we were attacked at Pearl Harbor.  We declared war on Japan, but never on Germany.  Why must we wait for some nation to attack us, or our allies, first before we “do something”?  That is the “coward’s diplomacy”.  Neither America, nor Britain, is “bullying the world” by inflicting its military might and prowess against those nations seeking to wreak great harm and destruction against our allies.  It is, in fact, Iran which is “bullying the world”, trying to intimidate Israel and force America and Britain into apathetic submission.  Until Iran actually does have nuclear capability, it must remain on the defensive.  That is why Britain is “ramping up sanctions against Iran” and  why America is doing the same.  It is why the United Nations must accept these sanctions against Iran.

But if Jenkins is right about anything, it is only the fact that sanctions themselves only “encourage militarist lobbies to escalate the steps that lead to open conflict”.  So why not just have the bloody war and get it done with?  If war is going to happen anyway, what is the sense in prolonging it?  Doing so only allows the enemy time to plan, to outfit itself, to ready itself, to strengthen itself against us.

For the most part, other nations’ business is not ours.

The longer we leave “other nations business” alone, such as Iran, the more “proud” these nations will become; the more emboldened and brazen and the more dangerous they will be.  Sanctions will stop the speed at which Iran’s nuclear program is accelerating, but sanctions will not diffuse Iran’s resolve.  War will.  Without going to war against our “proud” enemies, we leave them to walk all over us.  We leave them all the more “proud”.

As for rattling a sabre whenever Washington says so, that is the most humiliating idiocy.

Without war, there is only surrender and what comes afterwards – bondage, slavery and then death in a lonely, lowly unmarked, shallow hovel where it won’t take long for all the creatures of the world above, and underneath, to root you out, dissect you and devour you.  Is that a pretty picture of the world we envision for ourselves and our children?  Is that a lesser “humiliating idiocy”?

2012: War With Islam Is Upon Us, Whether We Wish It Or Not…

It is Islam we are dealing with, we will be dealing with.  But it is not that element of Islam we see portrayed on American television we are at war with, and we must not be fooled by anti-American propagandists into believing it is.  It is that tyrannical Middle East faction of Islam, that denizen of religious usurpers which vows never to recognize Israel; that stronghold of barbarism, of outdated, antiquated ideology which, now back in power in Egypt, and rising, seeks to break the 1979 peace accord it once shared with Israel; that oppressive, cult-like wing of extremism which long ago severed its ties with reality, human decency and peace, which now has its will bent and obsessed with conquering the world on the proposition that all humans must either submit themselves to Allah, or the sword.

What good can come from the West tolerating such insurmountable hate and in-hospitality committed under the cloak of false teachings?  What good can come to Islam itself, for not pushing back against such potent, deeply disturbed rhetoric?  What greatness, what quality, is there in a religion which allows itself to be broadcast the world over as humbling itself before terrorism in the name of its God?

There is nothing peaceful about radical Islam.  Even when they win, they must yet instill terror within their own camps, their own conquered territories, their own people.  There is but one law for them.  No bill of rights, no freedom, no rights whatsoever under this Islam; certainly not under Sharia law – the same Sharia law proposed by Muslims in America, to replace, to override, America law.  The same Sharia law which looks the other way when honor-murder is committed.   To say that radical Islam is coming to America is an understatement.  It is already here.  Homegrown (Muslim) terrorism, is in America.

We in the West, those of us who refuse to acknowledge the truth of their intentions, find safety and security in denial.  We in the West, those of us who believe their thirst for revenge is perpetuated by an unwanted Western advance into their lands, find comfort in believing their terrorism is our fault.  We in the West, those of us who have been steadfast against the War on Terror, American aggression against an evil enemy that slaughtered 3000 of us in a single day, on our own soil, find solace and peace by deluding ourselves that all we have to do to stop the violence, the murder, the terrorism is…leave, abandon the Middle East altogether, oh – and one other thing – we must break all bonds of fellowship with Israel.

America has left Iraq.  Homicide bombings there continue.  Why is there not peace, now that the “infidel” has left?  Why do radical Islamists continue their slaughter of fellow Muslims?  The reason is simple.  Radical Islam, and those terrorist organizations fighting and murdering under the banner of Islam – the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, the PLO, and all the others – has ever had but one ambition.  Absolute power.  Iraq was becoming Westernized, however slightly, but nonetheless a threat, and therefore an obstacle, to their, radical Islam’s, influence.  There can be no bonds, no connections, no friendship with America among any Muslims, not in the eyes of radical Islam.  That is the reason for the thousands upon thousands of murders of Muslims by Muslims (radial Muslims) throughout America’s stay in Iraq.  That is the reason for why the murder of Muslims by Muslims (radical Muslims) goes on, after America has left.  It is to wipe out all those Muslims who might have been influenced (set free) by American ideals, who might have a harder time being influenced (corrupted) by radical Islam.  Where does their courage  now go when they know their allies grow thin?

300 to 400 million strong is quite an intimidating radical Islamic force to reckon with.  Yet three times that many Muslims oppose their brethren in their terrorist death march.  These opposition numbers, however great, are meaningless and inconsequential, and have little to no impact when, and so long as, that opposition is screamed in utter silence.  Fear of brutal and very bloody retribution holds their tongues back, even when they continue to be slaughtered by their brethren in their religion’s name.  America no longer holds a protective hand over Iraq.  Who will stop the radical Muslims from dominating the country anew?  Who will protect those Muslims who wanted real peace, real change, real hope from being slaughtered by others who do no share in their vision of a new Iraq, who do not share in anything but their own lust for power – and they do not share even that.

Those hundreds of millions of Muslims in hiding, and hiding their true desires of a peaceful Islam deep within the recesses of their own minds, can still regain their honor.  These Muslims must take their ideas of a peaceful Islam out of the protective shell within their conscience and reveal to the world that Islam is indeed, and can be, a religion of peace rather than terror.  They must have the courage to forgo the fear of deadly reprisal that awaits them.  They are being slaughtered anyway.  They will be slaughtered regardless, even in their silence.  Without this courage, they will cease to exist, as radical Islam overtakes them, and they will have forever doomed a religion, Islam, which could have known peace but instead chose violence and terror.  Those Muslims that had an opportunity to come to the aid of Islam will hence become Islam’s bane.

Radical Muslims hate the West for our friendship with Israel.  Would they admire us any more if we broke that alliance?  If we submitted to their insanity?  To do so would be America’s bane.

What good ever comes from submission?  Whether that submission is to a terrorist group, or submitting to one’s own fear of that terrorist group and what they might do to you.  The Taliban once ruled Afghanistan.  What good ever came of that for its people?  The Taliban is regaining its power there.  What then?  Will the same history in Afghanistan repeat itself in Iraq?

When we had an opportunity to thwart the progress of radical Islam, and Muslim terrorists, and put a stop to their demonic agenda of enslaving the whole human race under the religion of submission, we instead gave into weak political pressure, cowardice from the left, and pulled out.  With America’s presence in the region diminishing, the radical Muslims are regrouping, retraining, regaining strength and determination, and returning.

If we allow them to take back what we set free – with the blood and lives of thousands of soldiers from America and Europe – that will be the world’s bane.

Qaddafi Is Dead: How About Assad, Achmedinajad, And The Rest Of The Scum?

Qaddafi is is dead.  That is news to rejoice and celebrate and be very happy about.  How he actually died, who killed him, that he did not receive a “fair trial” is irrelevant.  Qaddafi was a dictator responsible for untold thousands of deaths over his 42 year reign of terror over Libya, including the 1988 Pan Am Lockerbie bombing.  Qaddafi died exactly how a ruthless, human-less dictator ought to die – without dignity!

We can only hope, and we will soon see one way or another, what takes his place in Libya, and whether or not America will have to go back in there.  If the Libyans are smart, and have some sense of human compassion, they will begin a new democracy in Libya that is void of dictators and allows for greater freedom for all its citizens.  If they are not, terrorists will again exploit whatever weaknesses and vulnerabilities remain and keep Libya from realizing true liberty, and keep America ever busy in that part of the world.

With Qaddafi’s death, the spirit of overthrowing other ruthless dictators is intensifying around the Middle east.  Syria in particular, where there have been ongoing protests for many months now, resulting in at least hundreds of deaths, if not thousands, as the Syrian government looks to conceal actual data that might reflect poorly on the nation.  In the hours after Qaddafi’s death, Syria has ramped up its killing of protesters, worried – as they ought to be – Qaddafi’s killing has emboldened and inspirited the people of Syria.  Indeed, the Syrian people have found new strength, new courage to continue their own plight for freedom and liberty.  For now, and so long as its so called President, Bashar Assad, remains in power, that freedom and liberty is on hold.

Say the protesters to Assad:

Qaddafi is gone, your turn is coming, Bashar!”

Granted we (America) would have done well to take out Syria (Assad and his government) back when we went to war with Iraq.  Still, the opportunity for removing this vagabond from a power he only acquired with the death of his father, is ripe.

How serious are the protesters in Syria and around the Middle east about removing their old, their decadent, their out of date dictators?  Says Bobby Ghosh, deputy international editor for Time Magazine:

Across the Arab world, dictators – as well as rebels – will both be looking at what happened in Libya and thinking, ‘We’ve got to strengthen our resolve.'”

That “resolve” is sharper, quicker, mightier and spreading to more and more people in Syria and around the Middle East faster than it ever has.  It is, and it ought to act as, a warning to all Middle East dictators that their time is indeed coming.  The people are rising, and continuing to rise, up against them and their brutal, murderous regimes and will exact their revenge upon them in the same way as was done to Qaddafi – without dignity.  Bashar Assad will meet the same fate as Qaddafi, if not more harshly, if he continues to disregard the will, the “resolve” of his people; if he continues to kill them as they protest for better rights, more freedom and liberty; if he continues to suppress them while he lives in the lap of luxury protected only by his military which he, as is common among all dictators, cravenly, cowardly hides behind.

And let us not forget about another highly disturbed, highly unstable and highly history-retarded dictator –  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran.  His time will come as well, and he will meet a fate he had neither hoped for nor expected if he is unwilling to accept the fact that his people are human beings and ought to be treated with more respect and given more freedom and liberty and more control over their own lives.  And his fate might just be sealed not by the people of Iran but by its other unstable leader, its religious dictator – the one they call the “Supreme Leader”.  He warned Ahmadinejad his post could be removed at any time.  And with removal of his “post” also comes removal of the protection that comes with that post, giving the people a better chance to “do away with him”.

It is all well and good to envision the “removal” of these bloody dictators, whether that means a peaceful transition to a new government or a coup in which “removal” leads to the death of the dictator.  Throughout history there have dictators, many of whom have met their fate by the hand, the sword, the noose, the knife, the axe, the guillotine, etc. of their own people as they rise up against them and overthrow them.  Which is why they always hide behind their military and bodyguards as long as they can and hope to die in their sleep at a very old age.  It is why, as in Syria, they employ their military to kill their own people en mass in order to intimidate them and weaken their “resolve” and give them that chance to “die with dignity” in their sleep at old age.

What the current crop of dictators don’t understand is that the people’s “resolve” has never been stronger, has never been more organized, has never had as much wide spread support as it does now, among its own people, and people around the world watching, including America which at this time is keeping a close eye on everything going on in the Middle East, in South America, Asia and wherever dictators roam freely.

The time for dictators is waning.  Freedom, the concept of freedom, the reality of freedom, the power of freedom and the proof that freedom is better than suppression and enslavement is much too strong, much too desirable, for these corrupt dictators to to keep under lock and key so they might remain in power.

The time for the end of Assad, for Ahmadinejad, for all the rest of the scum that are preventing their own people from realizing freedom is coming.  So we ought not be surprised or disheartened if we wake up to the news, in the near future, that these dictators have indeed been killed, and killed without dignity, in the same way as was Qaddafi.

We ought to look to this time with a smile on our face and a happy heart.  Remember when the Wicked Witch of the West met her death, and everyone sang, “Ding Dong, the Wicked Witch is dead”?

Every time a dictator meets the fate they deserve – to die without dignity – we’ll be singing that song, or something similar to it.

Death to dictators – long live freedom!

On Going To War With Iran: Let’s Do It!

In its latest kerfuffle, the always friendly, benevolent leader in world humanity, Iran, is embroiled in an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States within the United States itself.  According to the Obama administration, there is overwhelming proof (and it is hoped and encouraged it will be produced forthwith) for such a plot.  Iran has vehemently denied any such plot, so until that proof is given, we will have to wonder about that “little” incident.

And it was only a few weeks ago when Iran announced it would send war ships to the shores of America, or at least very close to it.  What other reason would there be for this except to provoke America into responding?  And how could, or would, America, respond other than militarily, attacking these ships and blowing them from the water?

And we still have the possible execution of a Muslim turned Christian pastor hanging on our minds, as well as Iran’s nuclear program, still in full throttle (and no end in sight) to contend with.

And Iran never executed its own citizens for being homosexual, because there are no homosexuals in Iran to begin with.

This is exactly what happens when a legitimate madman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, (he’s even got “mad” in his name) is given absolute power over a country, and is supported by a radical, totalitarian, so called “Supreme Leader” who is just as hateful, anti-Semitic, anti-west, anti-America, bloodthirsty, and hellbent on killing and blowing up people and things for no reason or purpose other than for the amusement of their own demonic egos.

Iran, or at least Ahmadinejad, is betting on America (the Barack Obama Administration) being too weak to confront Iran, too tied up militarily and financially in Iraq and Afghanistan and other parts of the world in its War On Terror, and otherwise politically uninterested, and hampered, in engaging, and challenging, Iran directly, in another major war.  Remember, Obama promised to end these wars and bring out troops home during his 2008 campaign, and not to engage in further wars.  It is supposed the little skirmish in Uganda, for which Obama is sending 100 troops on a mission to kill Christians, does not constitute a war.

What other logical conclusion can be drawn from Iran’s irrational behavior?

For too many years Iran has been allowed to flex muscle it never had.  And now, because Barack Obama is politically weak and vulnerable (and his administration is under scrutiny), because of an otherwise small group of anti-capitalist protesters around America causing trouble and mayhem (their bark is louder than their bite), because our economy is as weak as it is, with talk of a double dip recession, Iran sees an opportunity to exploit all these weaknesses, counting on Obama’s inexperience being his undoing.  And while Obama is indeed inexperienced in so many ways, American still has the greatest military force, the greatest military might, in the world.  Enough power, regardless of Obama’s inexperience, to stop Iran and put it back in its lonely, isolated place.  But that is only if we use that power we have.

Iran is banking on the idea we won’t.

We must call Iran’s bluff, once and for all.  If Iran is stupid enough to actually send war ships to the shores of America, it must be considered as an act of war itself and we must not flinch, we must not balk, we must not stall.  If Iran wants the war, or even if it doesn’t; if Iran is merely “testing” America’s military and political resolve – we cannot waver.  Blow the bloody ships out of the water, and then go after its nuclear program and blow that up too.  If Iran still wants to continue to agitate America, we can find more targets within Iran to obliterate, including Ahmadinejad himself and his “Supreme Leader”.

Sometimes we have to give war a chance in order to secure peace.  We can no longer continue treating Iran as an idle threat.  They are not, nor can that be considered at this point, especially when Russia is supplying them with serious weapons.

The Middle East is imploding on itself; the Arab parts at any rate.  Libya, Egypt, Yemen, even Syria have, or are, all seeing internal uprisings.  For better or worse, the end results of these uprisings will dictate how the Middle East will look in the near future.  If even more radical, anti-Semitic, anti-American groups come to power in these countries, and we wait to do anything about it, or don’t do anything about it at all; if America cannot, will not, conquer this madness now; if we allow them to coalesce into a unifying force, what, or who, will stop them from realizing their vision of a Middle East free of Israel and Jews?  What, or who, will stop them from attacking all of America’s interests?

By going after, and defeating Iran, now, we can show these countries that America still has military resolve, and that we are not afraid to use it.  That we will use again, and again.

If we don’t, Iran, Syria, even Russia and China, any other country with its eyes set on defeating, or at least weakening, America’s military might in the world, will see America has no resolve, political or otherwise, to engage in war.  And as a result, these countries will begin flexing their own muscle.  Aside from Syria, Russia and China do have muscle to flex.  And as bad as it is to be weak in the eyes of smallish countries like Iran and Syria, it is far worse, far graver, with deeper and more profound ramifications, to be weak in the eyes of real military might such as Russia and China.

What becomes of America when that happens?

How Can Islam Be The Religion Of Peace It Claims To Be? (And How Can We Respect It With A Straight Face?)

In Saudi Arabia, a Colombian soccer player, Juan Pablo Pino was detained by “moral” police, after he was seen with an exposed tattoo of Jesus on his arm.  The country maintains its law under Sharia, which does not allow for religious tattoos, among other things, to be exposed in public.  Upon his release, Pino is said to have apologized for the mishap.  If he hadn’t, would he have been released?

And, in an on going story which has the world gripped, Iran is set to execute by hanging a Muslim turned Christian pastor. And if it had not been from all the pressure, all the condemnation, worldwide, the execution would have already taken place.

Two current stories, among the countless millions which illustrate the destructive, anti-human worldview that is Islam.

A man cannot wear a religious tattoo without being accosted by “moral” police.  Any Muslim that dares convert to Christianity, and is found out, is executed.  Arab Muslims from Hamas to the PLO, in Egypt, Iran, Syria and all over the Middle east routinely, religiously, call for the destruction of Israel and the killing of every last Jew.  And Muslim women can’t do anything for fear of being lashed or stoned to death in so called “honor” killings.  And that includes reporting being raped, because if she does that, her father and brothers will kill her for having “dishonored” the family, and that is protected under Sharia law.  And Muslims are just arrogant enough to have the audacity not to understand why we criticize them and their religion.

Ladies and gentlemen, Islam is not a respecter of peace.  Islam is not about peace.  Islam is not defined as peace.  Islam is not defined by peace.  If you are a Muslim today, you are either the blood thirsty Muslim terrorist who uses Islam and the name of Allah in vane to justify your madness, or you are the cowardly Muslim who will not stand up for your religion and defend it (that part of Islam that once was peaceful and enlightened) and take it back from the blood thirsty Muslim terrorists that have hijacked it.  Which one are you?

And before you take offense, which you don’t deserve, and start talking about all of Christianity’s faults throughout the centuries just remember – Christianity ironed out most of those faults through all its many schisms, religious wars, etc., where millions of people, mostly innocent, died during this period of struggle.  Today, Christianity is vastly different than it was even three hundred years ago.  It is less blood thirsty and less hell bent on damnation and more focused on saving souls, whereas Islam is more focused on killing souls.

Nothing coming out of Islam today remotely suggests there is any intent by Muslims to be more caring, more giving, more tolerant people.   By their law non Muslims are the infidel and it is justified to kill them.  That’s Sharia law.  The only law they know.

There has been talk of allowing Sharia Law here in America, to accommodate the many Muslims who have immigrated here.  Why they came here, to what is essentially a Christian nation, would be baffling except for the fact that it is here in America where a Muslim, where anyone of any religion, can most freely practice their faith (within reason).  It’s ironic.  In fact, Muslims can practice their faith here in America more freely, and without being harassed, than they could back in their own country.  We don’t have a “moral” police that can arrest anyone for the slightest of religious infractions.  It would be unconstitutional.

Allowing Sharia law here in America would be a bad idea, not just because it violates the constitution, which is does.  But by its very nature, Sharia law would allow for Muslims to be tried and sentenced under separate laws and a different due process than the rest of Americans.  That’s not what our founding fathers intended.  Sharia law, just as it does in the rest of the Muslim world, would also allow for the lashing, stoning and killing of women and girls in their so called “honor” killings.  Sharia law, just as in the rest of the Muslim world, would allow for the executions of Muslims turned Christians.  Right here in America.  And the same damned liberals who despise and decry our own death penalty would support the death penalty under Sharia law, because these same damned liberals who so despise Christianity welcome anything that is counter to Christianity, i.e., Islam.

And what of women’s rights groups like the National Organization of Women?  They are silent right now on everything going on in the Muslim world concerning the violence against Muslim women and girls.  Why?  Out of some fear they would be disrespecting the religion?  No.  Because NOW so hates Christianity, it is willing to bite its tongue when Islam, which also despises Christianity as much as liberals, behaves badly towards its women and girls.  Bring Sharia law here to America, install it, use it in place of American law, to subvert American law, to intimidate and spread fear, to counter Christianity – liberals will look the other way, regardless of the inhumanity it commits against Muslim Americans in the name of Islam and of Allah.  One has to wonder what Sharia law has to say about abortion, and how that would play into NOW’s attitude toward Sharia law.

With all the violence being committed in the name of Islam, and it is true that the vast majority of today’s terrorists are Muslim, is it even possible Islam itself can be saved?  And if so, where are the so called “peaceful” Muslims?  What is the point of retaining ones religion if that religion no longer reflects or behaves in the manner in which it was founded?  What is the point of staying in a religion that has evolved itself more into a satanic cult, than a religion of peace?  Why not just convert to Christianity?  Is there anything within Islam even worth redeeming at this point?

In Arabic, Islam means submission, not peace.  And it is submission for which one part of its followers, (about 300 million out of nearly 1.3 billion Muslims) Islam is concerned.  But if Islam is ever going to be that religion of peace that the other part (the one billion Muslims) claims it really is, than the one billion need to stand up and be counted; they need to take a stand for the Islam that is of peace, (if that “peace” still exists, or ever existed) and remove that Islam which is of death and destruction.  If they (the one billion Muslims) don’t find the courage to do that, then it will happen progressively, and more violently, by western powers in their/our on going War On Terror.  And the longer the “peaceful” Muslims” continue to sit and be silent, the harder it will be for anyone to look at Islam with a straight face and seriously consider anything remotely peaceful about it.

And by the time the West is through waging its War On Terror, which will continue for years to come – will there even be anything left of Islam, within Islam, to salvage?  Anything worth remembering?  Or will Islam be remembered mostly for its violence and its murderous rage and tendencies; its “honor” killings and beheadings; its terrorism and homicide bombers?  And will that be how the history of Islam is taught to subsequent generations?

Is that really what Muslims want for their religion?

Sometimes Peace Can Only Be Secured Through War…

An impetuous and confused Hillary Clinton has put her foot in her mouth calling Israeli Settlement Expansion In East Jerusalem ‘Counterproductive’.

Said Clinton:

“We have long urged both sides to avoid any kind of action which could undermine trust, including, and perhaps most particularly, in Jerusalem, any action that could be viewed as provocative by either side.”

Clinton calls an additional 1,100 units “provocative” and says she wants to “avoid any kind of action which could undermine trust” at the same time the Palestinians are demanding statehood, refusing to recognize the state of Israel and promising to exterminate all Jews.  Who the hell is it who is being “provocative” here, and who is she trying to fool with her double talk?  It is Hillary Clinton, not Israel, that is being “counterproductive”.  It is Hillary Clinton who is “undermining trust”.  It is Hillary Clinton who is going out of her way not to “avoid any action”.  Clearly her inflammatory, anti-Israel rhetoric demands “action”.  It demands her apology to Israel!  Good luck with that ever happening.

Thankfully a level headed Benjamin Netanyahu has dismissed her anti-Israel grumblings and will proceed with the expansion of Jewish settlements.  However, this is not the end of it.  Hillary Clinton, like most in the Obama Administration, appear to be closely imbedded with, and growing closer to, the enemies of Israel who have grown more emboldened since Barack Obama became President.  And remarks like those Clinton made against Jewish expansion will not make Israel’s enemies bite their tongues or curb their desire to make peace with Israel a real possibility any time soon.

On the contrary, you have Islamic Imams threatening Jihad against the United States; an arrogant Iranian government taunting America with its navy, ramping up its own military forces, confident America is in a weaker position, both politically and militarily, to counter attack; and now Egypt wants all Jews, Israelis and Zionists expelled from its nation.

All this going on throughout the world and Hillary Clinton is worried that 1,100 housing units for a growing Israeli population is going to upset the peace process?  Someone needs to inform Clinton there isn’t any “peace process”, there won’t ever be a peace process; that the so called “peace process” is, and always has been, a charade.  Arabs and Muslims don’t want peace – not with Israel, not with  America.  Not now, not in the future.

Hillary Clinton and the Barack Obama Administration have the audacity to talk of peace between Israel and the Palestinians through Israeli concessions, while the Palestinians talk openly of annihilating the Jews and taking the whole of Israel for themselves.  These bizarre actions, the deafening silence of Barack Obama to not scold the Palestinians, demand an explanation.

The longer we continue to merely talk of peace, the more our enemies the world over are becoming less fearful of America’s might and moving toward war, all at a time when Barack Obama does not have a plan to avert deep cuts in our defense spending.  If these cuts in defense occur, America will be made that much weaker, that much more vulnerable, that much less able to provide military assistance to our allies, Israel included, if war were to break out, let alone ourselves.

The time for talk is passed.  The time for peace negotiations had ended.  It is time to talk of war.  It is time to threaten war against America’s enemies and those enemies that would harm Israel.  We’ve tried for years, for decades to “give peace a chance”.  Our enemies don’t want peace, they want war.  They want war!  And how do we contend with a people who are so staunchly set on war if we don’t acquiesce to their ridiculous demand that Israel give up its right to exist and its people give up their right to live?  How do we rationally deal with a people who have every intention of making war against Israel and America until this ridiculous, idiotic demand is met?  How, and why, do we continue to deal with them at all?

Have we really become a nation that readily bows to our enemies like Obama bows to foreign leaders?

Perhaps it is for the best to continue the “talk”, ever stalling for time, for hope, for better, more courageous leadership, until at least after the 2012 election.  Obama is weak now.  But if he wins a second term, how much longer can we merely talk before our enemies, and Israel’s, realize we have no stomach for war, no desire for war, no funding in the budget to pay for war?

All that giving “peace a chance” accomplishes is to give our enemies that much more time and leverage, that much more of an advantage.

It’s time to “give war a chance“!

It’s time to elect a strong, solid Presidential candidate who is willing to “give war a chance“.  It’s time to stop fooling ourselves into believing our enemies want peace.  It’s time to accept that sometimes in order to secure peace, that peace can only be secured through war.

History has proven that war better solves the problems, and more quickly ends the wide spread suffering, that peace talk merely prolongs.  History has also proven what happens the longer that war is prolonged.

Israel Has The Right To Exist (And To Expand Their Settlements)

Israel, with roughly 8000 to 8500 square miles in total land value, is roughly equivalent with the state of New Jersey, which is actually only slightly larger.  Yet, the Palestinian Liberation Organization demands a piece of it for their own homeland.   And if it was not for the strong relationship Israel has with the United States (the Barack Obama Administration aside) not only would the PLO be demanding an even greater piece, but they would have, long ago, brazenly, and with the support of Hamas and most of the Middle East, invaded Israel and fought a very bloody, very costly war to take it.  Although Israel most likely would prevail in such a war, without the support of the United States, its only real ally, the casualties would have been considerably greater simply because, without the United States, lawless insurgents and terrorists would be that much more emboldened, leading to a greater death toll on both sides.

Israel already gave up the Gaza Strip in the name of peace, and in the hope of more peaceful relations with the Palestinians.  That has not come to fruition.  (The Israelis had constructed state of the art greenhouses which were promptly destroyed once the Palestinians took control of the land.  Obviously the Palestinians are not that much into environmentalism or the whole “going green” movement.)

Situations have only become worse.   The Palestinians have continued their attacks, and recently have stepped up those attacks, and won’t be satisfied until they get control of the West Bank and, eventually, the rest of Israel itself.  And because the Obama Administration has been, for the most part either silent, or teetering back and forth without a definitive resolution, and except for a statement Barack Obama made early on in his presidency in which he had hoped to see the United Nations welcome a new Palestinian state into it fold (he has since backed away from that), the misguided passion of the Palestinians has only grown, along with their hostility toward, and contempt for, Israel and their ever surmountable anger with Israel’s expanding settlements.

Now, the PLO is demanding the United Nations grant them statehood status, a dangerous move which, if it is aloud to proceed, will have devastating consequences, and almost certainly lead to war.   The PLO has already gone on record saying such a new Palestinian state would be devoid of any and all Jews.  Considering they want a part of Israel to claim as their own, (a piece the size of which they will never be satisfied with), land which is presently occupied with Jews, the ramifications are obvious – mass expulsions.  It’s hard to believe these Jews would go quietly.  They didn’t even go quietly when they were removed by their own government from the Gaza Strip.

The United States has promised to veto any move to allow Palestinian statehood, and to keep such a bid from ever reaching the United Nations.  Many are nonetheless fearful that in doing so, new violence would emerge.  However, it must be recognized that there would be violence regardless.  The PLO, Hamas, Palestinians in general, and the Middle East at large, have yet to affirm Israel’s own right to exist.  Quite humorous, then, and no hypocrisy whatsoever, this is exactly what the Palestinians are demanding for themselves.

The question has to be asked – do the Palestinians really want statehood, or do they really want the State of Israel itself.  In other words, would they accept statehood status if land was offered from Egypt, Syria, Iran or any other Middle east nation?  God knows these nations have plenty of open, fertile space between them to offer up the Palestinians.  (And not many, if any, Jews residing in the area.)  And such a move would be praised by the United States, and, although reluctantly, the U.N. (The U.N. is no fan of Israel.)  It would promote peace and prosperity for the Palestinians, promote pride in their newly formed state and gain accolades from leaders all over the world.  It is of no surprise the PLO is reluctant to even consider such an move.  Their agenda is clear – the annexation of all Israeli land and the annihilation of all the Jews.  This is their mantra and they won’t be satisfied until it has been met.

We, that is, America (there really isn’t anyone else) must be firm.  Absolutely no statehood for the Palestinians.  Not until long after they have ceased their attacks, given up entirely their goal of conquest, dismantled the PLO, Hamas and any other anti-Israel terror organization, accepted Israel’s right to exist and have shown and demonstrated a very real and genuine attempt to live peaceably with its Jewish neighbors.   They don’t have to invite each other over for tea, or even carry on a social conversation with one another.

But there must absolutely be peace.  A peace strongly enforced by a new Palestinian government, free of any links to terrorism or terrorists.  And if any Israeli land is to be annexed and incorporated into this new Palestinian state, (though this seems unnecessary) it ought to be done with the full cooperation of the Israeli government and its people.  Included in this agreement, a legal stipulation that if ever the Palestinians recreate the PLO, Hamas or any Palestinian organization, under any name, affiliate themselves with any anti-Israeli terror groups in any way, however remote; if the Palestinians ever again attempt to seize control of Israeli land, wage, or sponsor, attacks against Israel, or do not suppress such attacks by its own people, such a move would automatically revert any and all land earlier annexed for the new Palestinian state back to Israel.

Until that happens – the PLO, and all Palestinians, ought to keep their hands and their eyes off Israel.  It is the prize of the Israelis.
