Retreat leads to decline, decline leads to rot, rot leads to destruction and destruction leads to death, Re: Obama’s national retreat, Washington Times, August 29, 2012

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

America itself, the American ideal and American’s lives have gone backwards in every way imaginable since Barack Obama became president and there is no doubt that they will keep on going backwards if he is re-elected in Novembers presidential election. America is under retreat and the retreat has been led by Obama, the most dangerous president the United States of America has ever seen.

Obama has run roughshod over American values, institutions, laws and guiding principles and America and Americans have suffered greatly as a result. He is a socialist, big government ideologue with no real understanding or affection for America or Americans who has done his level best to change the nature and essence of the country…to inflict bureaucracy and mediocrity into all aspects of Americans lives… to make government all knowing, all seeing and all powerful…to shackle Americans and stifle the American spirit…to reduce the U.S. from leader of the free world and defender of freedom and democracy around the globe to a vassal state of the United Nations with no real independence…to wreck the American economy and make Americans dependent on government largesse…to turn the country from a free, democratic, pluralistic, secular nation into one in which Islam is dominant…to take the freest, most socially and economically successful country in the history of the world and make it into an Orwellian nightmare…to essentially destroy America and the American ideal and consign them to the garbage can of history. In doing so he has frequently lied to the American people and distorted his behaviour and actions.

And on and on. Obama hasn’t led America forward (unless you’re anti-American and cut from the same cloth he is) he has led it straight backwards and infinitely reduced its circumstances and the circumstances of the American people. There has been a great national retreat under Obama and that retreat will continue apace if he is re-elected because he will keep on doing what he has done in the past. Of that there is no doubt. Destroying the country from within was his goal from the very beginning and that is what he will continue to try and do if he is returned to office. It is orchestrated, it is deliberate, it is being done on purpose and it will continue if he is voted in again.

If patriotic Americans of good heart and good conscience think the country is in trouble now wait and see what happens if he wins in November. There will be more of everything…more poverty, more strife, more division, more government, more debt, more destruction of everything Americans hold dear, more lawbreaking, more lies and distortion, more Islam, more submission to the United Nations and the international community, more of everything Obama and his acolytes and fellow ideologues have brought us. There may even be a second revolutionary war as Americans wake up and refuse to accept tyranny and dictatorship, refuse to sit back and watch their country destroyed from within, refuse to wait until 2016 to vote Obama out of office because they’ll think it may be to late to save the country, and themselves for that matter, by then.

The formula is simple. Retreat leads to decline, decline leads to rot, rot leads to destruction and destruction leads to death, in this case the death of the United States of America and everything she stands for and has always stood for.

Retreat, decline, rot and destruction are well under way in America and the death of the country will follow if Obama is re-elected. The evidence is all around. That is why Americans have to vote him out of office in November. Freedom and democracy depend on it…their lives and the life of the country depend on it.

A vote for Obama is a vote against America and the American way of life. A vote for Obama is a vote for the destruction and death of the country. A vote for Obama is a vote for national suicide.

Pure and simple.

Like I said, the evidence is all around.

Corrie responsible for own death, not Israel or Israelis, Re: Rachel Corrie: Court rules Israel not at fault for death, BBC News, August 28, 2012

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

Rachel Corrie was a 23 year old pro-Palestinian member of the International Solidarity Movement from the United States who died in 2003 in Gaza when she placed herself in front of an Israeli Defence Forces bulldozer in the middle of military activity in a war zone and was accidentally run over and killed.

The International Solidarity Movement is opposed to Israel’s very existence and believes that the country has no right to self- defence…Corrie and other members were in Gaza to protect terrorists and to prevent the Israeli military from taking measures to stop the flow of arms and terrorists into Israel from Gaza, from taking measures to protect Israel and Israelis from widespread destruction and death at the hands of said terrorists, from taking measures to protect Israelis from inhuman, unspeakable atrocities committed by them

Corries family accused the Israeli Ministry of Defence and the Israeli Defence Forces of being negligent, claimed that her death could have and should have been avoided and sought redress through the courts in Israel.

The District Court in Haifa just ruled against them and absolved the MOD and the IDF of responsibility for her death. In bringing down the verdict the court ruled her death was accidental not intentional and was caused by caused by her own rash decisions and actions. According to the court she had several opportunities to leave the scene but chose to place herself in a dangerous situation and ended up dead as a result. It wasn’t the fault of the MOD or IDF…it was hers for placing herself in an extremely vulnerable position in a designated combat area to begin with and by extension the International Solidarity Movement and Palestinian terrorist organizations Hamas and Fatah for encouraging and enabling her to be there.

The verdict was both correct and just. It came after a fair, lengthy, exhaustive trial in which both sides had ample opportunity to present and defend their version of events. It should be noted that an expert who testified on behalf of the family said that the bulldozer driver could not possibly have seen Corrie and that a thorough investigation by the Israeli military in 2003 came to the conclusion that it was not responsible for her death.

It is clear now and was clear from the very beginning that Rachel Corrie was responsible for her own death…she was an adult capable of making her own decisions, misguided though they were in this case, and chose to place herself in the situation she did of her own free will. She certainly didn’t have to and could easily have avoided it. Her death was an unintended consequence of a very bad decision she made, actually a whole series of very bad decisions, but she and she alone made them. In the end, that makes her and her alone responsible for her death, even though she was manipulated, used, aided and abetted by the International Solidarity Movement and by Hamas and Fatah. She had to be aware that placing herself in front of a bulldozer in the middle of a combat operation in a war zone could result in her death but she chose to go ahead and do it anyway…whose responsibility is that if not hers?

Not yours, not mine and not the MOD or the IDF either.

Don’t expect it all to end here though. Her death and the Israeli verdict are exceedingly useful propaganda tools for those who hate Israel and Israelis, by those who would like to see Israel destroyed and don’t mind seeing Israeli blood spilled, by those who excuse Palestinian atrocities, by the useful idiots who believe the phony Palestinian narrative. Propaganda is what we can expect from this and propaganda is exactly what we’ll get. In fact, Corrie is far more valuable in death than she ever was in life.

Pity she didn’t recognize and understand that before she placed herself in front of the bulldozer.

Pity her family doesn’t recognize and understand that now.

George Washington told us a long time ago, Re: Why Voting Democrat Is Voting Against Yourself, American Thinker, August 26, 2012

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Should the American people vote for Barack Obama in Novembers presidential election and return him to office for four more years?

The answer is a clear, unequivocal, resounding no. Americans should not vote for him and should not return him to office for four more years. They should admit that they made a huge mistake in the last election and toss him out of office, period.


George Washington told us a long time ago.

In a speech to his troops before the battle of Long Island in 1776 Washington said “ The time is now near at hand which must probably determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves…Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission.” Those words have great relevance and resonance for Americans today, just as they did when Washington first spoke them 236 years ago when Americans were fighting for their independence and the country was being born.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Americans are far less free since Obama became president four years ago…that the government has become much bigger and more oppressive and has intruded into ordinary peoples lives to an unprecedented degree since he took office…that the rule of law and the supremacy of the Constitution have been eroded or ignored…that freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of conscience, freedom of the press and other freedoms have become endangered by the bullies in the White House and their acolytes…that American values, principles and institutions have been attacked, subverted and weakened by Obama and his cronies…that Obama’s opponents have been publicly ridiculed, vilified and shamed and privately placed under surveillance (along with millions of other Americans I might add)…that he has shown that his sympathies lie with religious, bureaucratic, dictatorial autocrats, not democrats and capitalists…that Obama has refused to be bound by the restraints of his office, has acted unilaterally and has taken many powers unto himself…that he has frequently acted like a dictator and not a president…that he has frequently, regularly and consistently lied to the American people about anything and everything…that he is presiding over and actively pursuing the Islamization of the country and the government, including the military…that Americans freedoms and civil liberties are nowhere near where they were before he became president…that he set the pattern in his first term and will keep on going in the same direction if he gets a second.

That is the most important reason why Obama must be removed from office in November. If Americans want to be a free people living in a free country he has to go. His track record is very clear and it is also very clear that Americans will no longer be a free people living in a free country if he wins the election. There are many and sundry reasons why Obama should not be re-elected (his utterly inept economic and foreign policy performance to cite but two) but they all pale in comparison to this. Make no mistake, a vote for Obama is a vote against America, against the American way of life, against everything she stands for and has always stood for, against everything she has sacrificed her blood and treasure for.

George Washington was right. The choice is between freedom and submission,  between freedom and Obama. It doesn’t get any more important or fundamental than that. Americans should be thankful that they still have a choice, that they still have the vote. Give Obama another four years and they might very well not have either.

Doing nothing no option, Re: An Ultimatum For Iran, National Post, August 25, 2012

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

Charles Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist for the Washington Post, recently told us in one of his columns that Anthony Cordesman, a miltary analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, has offered advice about how the United States should deal with Iran’s nuclear weapons development program. Cordesman evidently believes that the U.S. should make it clear to the Iranians that they must abandon the program or else the American military will destroy it. Cordesman also believes that the United Sates should establish redlines and deadlines and make it clear to the Iranians that they will be upheld and that the U.S. should offer Iran generous rewards for ending the program as a face-saving sop for them.

Five things need to be made clear now. One, a preemptive military attack by either America or Israel is the only way to get rid of Iran’s nuclear weapons development program, to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands and prevent the Iranians from becoming a nuclear power, two, Iran is very close to successfully developing nuclear weapons and getting closer every day, three, a nuclear Iran would pose a grave threat to America and Americans, four, Iran would launch her nuclear weapons against Israel as soon as she got them and five, none of what Cordesman proposes is going to happen, none of it.

President Obama is ideologically, intellectually, politically and personally incapable of doing any of it and the Iranians know it. They are fully aware that they have nothing to fear from America as long as Obama is president and that the United States has therefore given them free rein to keep on developing nuclear weapons. Short of a large-scale Iranian military attack on America itself there is no possible way that President Obama is going to take military action against Iran’s nuclear weapons development program, whether he gets re-elected in Novembers presidential election or not. That means that the United States under President Obama has chosen to do nothing to prevent Iran from developing, possessing and eventually using nuclear weapons even though there is no doubt that a nuclear Iran would be catastrophic for the U.S. in a wide variety of ways and would place the sovereignty, security and arguably the very existence of the country at great risk. Doing nothing to get rid of Iran’s nuclear weapons development program is the worst possible option for America, even if Obama is too stupid, blind and weak to recognize and understand that and actually do anything about it but it is an option that the United States has adopted nevertheless.

Doing nothing is not an option for Israel however. The Israelis know full well that Iran would launch her nuclear weapons against Israel as soon as she possibly could in an effort to obliterate Israel and wipe it off the map and that millions of people would be murdered and die horrific deaths even if the country somehow miraculously survived. Those are givens and they are incontrovertible. Iran wants to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews as possible and would use her nuclear weapons to try and do exactly that…it would be the first attempted nuclear genocide in history and there is no doubt that the Iranians will go ahead with it once they are able to, no doubt whatsoever. The Israelis have no illusions about this and neither should anyone else, especially Americans, who are in fact next on Iran’s hit list if it succeeds against Israel.

That is why doing nothing is not an option for Israel. If it doesn’t launch a preemptive, unilateral military strike against Iran’s nuclear weapons development program, soon, it will be attacked by Iranian nuclear weapons, soon, the country will most likely not survive and millions of people would be murdered and die horrific deaths in any case. Israelis know that launching a preemptive, unilateral strike would have terrible consequences for them and their country but they also know that the consequences would be infinitely worse if they didn’t, that doing nothing simply isn’t an option for them. When it happens, you can blame Iran, you can blame Islam, you can blame Obama, you can blame the Islamic world, you can blame Russia or China or the West, you can blame whatever or whoever you want, but don’t blame Israel or the Israelis…they’re just reacting to events, their environment, the lunacy of their antagonists and the unintended (or quite possibly intended for that matter) complicity of their supposed friends and allies and doing what they need to do to survive.

No, doing nothing is not an option for Israel or Israelis and you can expect them to attack soon, probably in the next month or so because the window of opportunity becomes more problematic after that.

Good for them, good luck and go Israel go.

Just the latest excuse, Re: Iran’s supreme leader orders fresh terror attacks on West, The Telegraph, August 23, 2012

Thursday, August 23rd, 2012

Word out of Tehran is that Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has ordered fresh terror attacks on the West over its overt and covert support of opposition groups in Syria who are attempting to overthrow the regime there. Bashar al-Assad’s government in Damascus is Iran’s most important ally in the Middle East and Tehran believes his overthrow would have grave consequences for Iran and for Hesbollah, its terrorist proxy in Lebanon. Tehran has been assisting Assad in a wide variety of military and non-military ways and Khamenei’s order is an attempt to intimidate the West into withdrawing its support and letting the religious/civil war in Syria play itself out to its bloody end, an end which Iran hopes will see Assad remaining in power.

Its also the latest excuse for Iran’s terrorist attacks against the West, which Tehran has been carrying out for almost 35 years now, since the overthrow of the Shah in 1979 and long before the conflict in Syria erupted. In plain fact, Iran is at war with the West and has been since it became an Islamic state when the Shah was overthrown. It carries out terrorist attacks, funds and supports terrorist organizations and activities, is actively working towards the demise of the United States (the Great Satan) and Israel (the Little Satan) in particular and other Western powers in general and wants nothing more than to destroy the West and establish its hegemony in its stead, all in the name of Islam of course. Its using Western support of the opposition in Syria to excuse its terrorist activities and to mask their true intent and purpose…to destroy Israel and the U.S. first and the West second and to make Islam supreme everywhere after that. Its just the latest excuse alright and don’t think that there won’t be many others as Iran pursues its evil, maniacal, murderous intentions.

Of all that there is no doubt, which is of course why it is absolutely imperative to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands, to attack and destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons development facilities and keep her from becoming a nuclear power. Iran wants to possess nuclear weapons for one reason and one reason only, to use them in a first strike against Israel in order to wipe the Jewish state off the map, to remove it from the face of the earth, and then to blackmail, threaten and intimidate the United States into submission. There is no doubt about any of that either, just as there is no doubt that Iran is close to developing nuclear weapons, that the United States under President Obama will not launch a preemptive military strike to prevent this from happening (which is the only thing that could possibly succeed), that even if Romney wins the presidential election in November it may be too late by the time he’s sworn in in January and that Israel will launch a preemptive military strike on its own soon because she’ll have to if she wants to survive.

Make no mistake, if Iran gets nuclear weapons she’ll launch them against Israel as soon as she can and Israel’s very survival will be jeopardized. A preemptive military strike by the Israelis will have terrible consequences for Israel and the Middle East but the consequences would be infinitely more terrible if Iran had nuclear weapons. Israel has no choice and knows it.

That’s no excuse, that’s reality. That’s also U.S. President Obama’s feckless foreign policy for you.

Don’t worry about it Bashar, Re: Obama threatens Syria with U.S. military action if Assad regime crosses ‘RED LINE’ by using chemical weapons, Daily Mail, August 21, 2012

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Talk about empty threats.

President Obama has threatened to take military action if Syrian President Bashar al Assad were to use chemical weapons against his foes in the insurrection that is engulfing his country.

What a joke.

Short of an attack on America itself there is no way on earth Obama would take military action against Syria, no way at all. He has neither the will or the stomach for it and the chances of his using the U.S. military in Syria are zero, regardless of his rhetoric. If I were the Syrian President I wouldn’t worry about Obama in the least because his track record, ideology and personality show very clearly that there is no reason to. I know that, you know that, the international community knows that and Assad knows that too.

I’d worry about the Israelis though if I was Assad. They do have the will and the stomach (and the ability too for that matter) to take military action against Syria if they believe Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile poses a threat to them and there is no doubt whatsoever that they would if they thought it was necessary to protect themselves and their national security.

Rightfully so too.

Thanks to Obama, Assad doesn’t have to worry about the United States. He’d better worry about Israel though because the Israelis can’t, and won’t, permit him to use chemical weapons.

Of course, if this was written about Iran the last two sentences could just as easily read like this.

Thanks to Obama, Ahmadinejad doesn’t have to worry about the United States. He’d better worry about Israel though because the Israelis can’t, and won’t, permit the lunatics in Teheran to possess nuclear weapons.

Rightfully so too.

Is this a sign that the mainstream media will tell the truth about Obama?, Re: Hit the Road, Barack/Why We Need a New President, Newsweek Magazine, August 20, 2012

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Barack Obama is arguably the worst president in the history of the United States. He has led America and Americans to the brink of economic and social rack and ruin…flouted the law and the constitutional restraints of his office on any number of occasions…frequently lied about all manner of things…insulted, angered and caused our friends and allies to mistrust and turn away from us…made us weaker and our enemies stronger…presided over, encouraged and enabled the Islamization of the government and the country…diminished America’s standing in the world…eroded our values, principles and institutions and severely compromised our national security.

Among other things.

Many other things.

He has done all of this with the complicity of the mainstream media, which has given him an absolutely free ride and acted as acolytes and fawning cheerleaders instead of responsible, competent, objective, unbiased, investigative journalists. He has been completely immune from criticism in the mainstream media and the mainstream media has distorted, excused, glossed over or ignored his exceedingly poor (and exceedingly dangerous) performance. For all intents and purposes the mainstream media has acted as his personal flack and apologist and has helped him to deceive Americans and carry out his destructive policies and activities.

Needless to say, in doing so it has done us all a terrible disservice.

The tide may be changing however.

Newsweek magazine just published a cover story entitled Hit The Road, Barack/Why We Need a New President. The story enumerates his many failures, speaks about some of the dangers which lie ahead should he be returned to office in November’s presidential election, presents a devastating picture of his performance, gives clear, cogent reasons why he should not be re-elected and paints him as an incompetent, incoherent, narcissistic, spendthrift and fraud who is not fit to be president and never will be. The story is critical in the extreme and is impossible to refute because his track record cannot be disputed. It is the first story of its kind in the mainstream media and hopefully will lead to many more. After all, the mainstream media has failed to carry out its responsibility regarding Obama for a very long time and America and Americans have suffered as a result…it is long past time for it to make amends and America and Americans deserve nothing less.

Has Newsweek started something?

Time will tell, but let’s hope so.

Oh, and by the way, the story was written by Harvard and Oxford Professor Niall Ferguson, whose credentials are, as they say, impeccable.

That answers that, Re: United Church blasted over Israel resolution, National Post, August 18, 2012

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

The General Council of the United Church of Canada just passed a resolution calling for a partial boycott of Israeli goods, to widespread ridicule, anger, opprobrium, contempt and sadness.

The question is why…why would the United Church of Canada pass such a resolution?

Is it because the church is ignorant about Palestinians reality, history, intransigence, mentality, beliefs and attitudes and the true root causes of the conflict between them and Israelis, of the true root causes of the situation they are in?

Is it because the church is cowardly and afraid to criticize Palestinians in any way, shape or form because doing so would threaten the safety, security and lives of its members, including members of its General Council? Criticizing Israel is easy because Israelis, Jews, won’t respond violently. Criticizing Palestinians and the Palestinian narrative takes a great deal of courage because Islamists invariably respond with violence and/or the threat of violence when criticism is voiced.

Is it because the church is dishonest because it refuses to look at the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis honestly, objectively and with an open mind and heart, refuses to ascribe any blame or responsibility for the conflict on the Palestinians at all?

Is it because the church is blind and cannot see the reality that Israelis live with every day…cannot see that Palestinians don’t want to live in peace with Israel but want to destroy it…cannot see that Palestinians are consumed by hatred of Jews…cannot see that Jews are constantly vilified, maligned, denigrated, abused and belittled in Palestinian society…cannot see that Israel is constantly subjected to terrorist attacks by Palestinians…cannot see that Palestinians religion, Islam, mandates the murder of Jews and the destruction of Israel?

Is it because the church is intellectually, morally and spiritually bankrupt because it accepts Israel’s plight and essentially blames Israelis for it… because it believes that Israelis are the authors of their own misfortune and that Israel’s policies (actually Israel’s very existence if the truth be told) are the impediment to peace and prosperity for Palestinians…because it rationalizes and excuses Palestinian behaviour that can only be described as inhuman and completely unacceptable by civilized human beings?

Is it because the remaining church members who are knowledgeable people of good heart and good conscience are being held hostage by naive, fashionable, left-wing, politically correct ideologues?

Is it because the church is nothing more than a useful tool for Islamists whose goal is to obliterate Israel, to wipe it off the map and remove it from the face of the earth, a useful stooge so to speak?

Is it because the church is anti-Semitic? In the end, that has to be a major reason why it passed such an idiotic, unbalanced resolution, objections to the contrary notwithstanding.

The answer to all these questions is yes, a resounding, unequivocal yes! The United Church of Canada is ignorant, cowardly, dishonest, blind, intellectually, morally and spiritually bankrupt and anti-Semitic…it is a useful tool for Islamists whose goal is to to kill Jews and destroy Israel and it has been hijacked by naive, fashionable, left-wing, politically correct ideologues.

It is also a dying institution. Its numbers have gone from approximately one million members fifty years ago to roughly 500,000 today with a further drop to 250,000 predicted in fifteen years to practically nothing by 2040. Its Christian members are voting with their feet and leaving it in droves.


Silence isn’t golden-Obama, irresponsibility and Iran, Re: What Obama Isn’t Saying About Iran, Wall Street Journal, August 17, 2012

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

Iran’s nuclear weapons development program is the biggest external threat there is to the national security of the United States, bar none.

If and when Iran becomes a nuclear power there is no doubt that she will use nuclear weapons against the U.S. at some point, with an accompanying incalculable loss of American lives and property. In the meantime it is a foregone conclusion that she will use her nuclear weapons against Israel in an attempt to remove the Jewish state and America’s only true friend and ally in the Middle East (and perhaps the world too for that matter) from the face of the earth…that in turn will cripple the national security of the United States and make the U.S. far more vulnerable than it otherwise is.

There is no question whatsoever that a nuclear Iran would be catastrophic for the United States and Israel and by extension the rest of the Middle East and free world as well, whether the Iranians succeed in wiping out Israel or not. There is also no question whatsoever that it is in both countries best interests to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands, that Iran is closer than she has ever been to acquiring them, that all non-military efforts to prevent her from acquiring them have failed and will continue to fail and that the window of opportunity for a preemptive military strike is fast closing.

Obama has been conspicuously silent about the nature, reality and advanced state of Iran’s nuclear weapons development program, about his utter failure to stop or even slow down the program and about the terrible price in blood and treasure Americans would pay should Iran become a nuclear power. His silence has misled the American people and lulled them into a deep sleep about Iran and her nuclear intentions. The silence and inaction have severely compromised the national security of the United States and made Americans unsafe and vulnerable…they have also enabled Iran to pursue her murderous intentions by developing her nuclear capability unhindered by America.

Obama has not told Americans how bad things really are and is doing them a terrible disservice by keeping silent. Iran wants to become a nuclear power for one reason and one reason only…to use her nuclear weapons against the United States and Israel. Obama’s silence and obvious unwillingness to take the only means possible to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power is aiding and abetting her to do exactly that.

So why is Obama silent and inert anyway? Is it because of election year politics? Is it because of his well-known and well-documented antipathy to Israel? Is it because he secretly sympathizes with and supports Iran’s intentions and the doctrine of hate they are based on? Is it because he has no real understanding or appreciation of the gravity of the situation? Is it because he is in the end anti-American and anti-Semitic? Is it because his personality renders him incapable of taking strong action, or any action at all? There are any number of possible reasons why he is being silent and inert but the fact is his silence and inaction have aided and abetted Iran and that if and when she becomes a nuclear power and uses her nuclear weapons against the United States and Israel the blame, responsibility and results will be largely on his shoulders.

Obama’s silence isn’t golden. It is completely and utterly callous and irresponsible. Coupled with his track record of unmitigated failure in every other area he has dealt with it means that the American people must toss him out of office in the upcoming presidential election for their good and the good of the country.

Hell, the survival of the country.

A story as old as Islam, Re: Aleppo’s residents struggling to stay alive, Middle East Online, August 17, 2012

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Shortly after Muhammad’s death 1,400 odd years ago Islam split into factions which have been at each others throats ever since. Internecine warfare began then and has continued right up to the present day. From the very beginning, all over the Islamic world adherents of different strains and interpretations of Islam have been busily killing each other in order to establish their dominance and it is continuing to happen as we speak. We see it in Syria, Egypt, Iran, the rest of the Middle East and everywhere there is a significant Islamic presence. Islamists, e.g. followers of Islam, killing other Islamists in the name of their interpretation of Islam…its a story as old as Islam itself.

That is why intervention by the international community in the current religious/civil war in Syria and the coming religious/civil war in Egypt would be pointless from a humanitarian point of view. Intervention may halt atrocities for a brief period but it is just a question of time before they resume again History tells exactly that, regardless of anything proponents and apologists for Islam might say to the contrary.

Conquering and subjugating non-Islamists, non-believers, is a basic tenet of Islam however and is common to all of its strains. Islam is supremacist and expansionist by nature and all of its adherents are mandated to conquer and subjugate non-Islamists, non-believers, who are universally seen as inferior beings. That is part and parcel of Islam and anyone who believes in Islam in any way, shape or form is required by it to conquer and subjugate non-Islamists, non-believers in general. As for Christians and Jews, especially Jews, Islamists are required to do much more than that, which is of course why the United States and Israel are so hated and vilified by them.

Its not so much that their people are Americans and Israelis as such. Its that the United States is essentially a Christian nation and Israel is a Jewish nation and Islam cannot abide Christianity or Judaism…its followers must destroy both in order to remain true to it…one simply cannot be true to Islam and tolerate the existence of Christianity or Judaism, of Christians and Jews…if one is an Islamist Christianity and Judaism, Christians and Jews, the United States and Israel, have to be much more than conquered and subjugated…they have to be killed and destroyed, pure and simple. Being a non-Isamist, a non-believer, is bad enough…being a Christian or Jew is infinitely worse.

Which brings us to the reason, the only reason, why the United States and/or Israel must intervene in Syria and Iran. Syria has weapons of mass destruction and they must be removed before they are used against America and Israel, as they surely will be. Iran’s nuclear intentions are well known and beyond dispute and the Iranians must be prevented from becoming a nuclear power to keep them from using nuclear weapons against America and Israel. Intervention by the United States and/or Israel in Syria and Iran to prevent weapons of mass destruction and nuclear weapons being used against the United States and Israel…that’s the only reason for the Americans and/or the Israelis to take matters into their own hands.

Its called survival.

As for the internecine warfare that has plagued Islam from practically day one…like I said, Islamists killing Islamists is an old story, as old as Islam itself, and intervention by the United States, Israel or anyone else isn’t going to stop it, no matter how well intentioned it might be..

Islamists will have to do that for themselves.
