The most defining issues of our time are….the attempt to Islamize the United States and every other Western country and to replace American and Western freedom, democracy, values and institutions with Sharia, Islamic law – the attempt to conquer the United States and the rest of the West and make Americans and everyone else in the West live under Islam and Islamic law….the financial, social and military decline of the United States under President Obama and the attempt by Obama to eliminate the rule of law and turn himself into a quasi dictator beholden to nothing and no one except himself and his anti-democratic, anti-American, pro-Islamic ideology – the United States going from the world’s only superpower and a beacon of freedom, democracy, enlightenment and hope (A City Upon a Hill as the saying goes) to a sick, weak, hobbled, country that is unwilling and unable to stand up for its own interests, ideals and way of life, a country that no one can depend on and one that is rapidly losing the ability to defend and protect itself or anyone else….Iran’s relentless, singleminded pursuit of nuclear weapons – Iran’s attempt to develop, possess and operationalize nuclear weapons and turn herself into a nuclear power.
There are of course many other huge issues which confront humanity in this day and age but these three are the most defining because how each of them plays out will determine the future for billions upon billions of people and will determine how future generations define our time. Determining the future of billions upon billions of people also makes them the most important issues of all.
If Islamists succeed in Islamizing the United States and other Western countries (and they are well on the way to doing so) American and Western freedom, democracy, secularism, pluralism, civil liberties and the rule of man-made law as opposed to religious law will disappear and Islam and Islamic law will reign supreme. Since Islam and Islamic law are by their nature and essence violent, hateful, intolerant, misogynistic, cruel, supremacist and totally rigid and unbending, among other such things, and since the exercise of freedom of any sort is not possible under them, the consequences for the United States and the West if Islamists succeed are absolutely clear. Goodby to freedom, democracy, secularism, pluralism, civil liberties and the rule of man-made law and hello to Islam and Islamic law and their accompanying violence, hate, intolerance, misogyny, cruelty, rigid, unbending way of thinking and acting and to being forced to live according to Islamic imperatives or suffer terrible consequences, including torture and death. Goodbye to the twenty-first century and hello to the seventh, the century Islam was born in and in which it still resides.
The Islamization of the United States and the West, whether or not it can be stopped and reversed and whether or not the United States and the West can survive as free, democratic, secular, pluralistic entities in the face of the Islamic assault….a defining issue of our time.
If the financial, social and military decline of the United States isn’t halted in its tracks and if the economy, the social fabric of the country and the military don’t regain their former strength very, very soon (and you know that neither is going to happen with Obama as President), the country’s economy will collapse, there will be blood on the streets and virtual civil war, Americas enemies will launch large-scale attacks against the country at home and abroad, the Pax Americana, deterrence through strength and the willingness and ability to use it, will have become a thing of the past as will Western, Judeo-Christian civilization because without a strong America it cannot defend itself whereas a weak America guarantees its demise and Obama’s attempt to eliminate the rule of law and turn himself into a quasi dictator ruling by executive fiat will succeed. Obama has already eviscerated many of America’s most cherished, fundamental values and institutions and has already fundamentally changed the nature and character of the country and further financial, social and military decline will mean more of the same until America as we know it no longer exists. There is no doubt at all that further decline will have disastrous consequences for America and Americans and Western Civilization in general because a weak America is a dead America and because the survival of Western Civilization depends on a strong America.
The financial, social and military decline of the United States, whether or not it can be stopped and reversed and whether or not Obama can be kept from becoming a quasi dictator able to pursue his anti-democratic, anti-American, pro-Islamic ideology as he sees fit….another defining issue of our time.
If Iran succeeds in developing and operationalizing nuclear weapons (and all indications are that she is very close to doing so) she will attack Israel with them as her first order of business in an attempt to destroy the Jewish state and remove it from the face of the earth and millions if not billions of people will die as a result. That is a given and beyond doubt. If Iran becomes a nuclear power she will use her nuclear weapons against Israel as soon as she can. If she succeeds in wiping Israel off the map she will then use her nuclear weapons to threaten and blackmail the United States and other Western countries and her neighbors in the Middle East into acceding to her demands….she will also spark a nuclear arms race in the Middle East and beyond and will also export her nuclear technology to terrorist regimes and organizations around the world. Iran is developing and operationalizing nuclear weapons for one reason and one reason only….to use them against Israel, the United States and the West and her Arab/Islamic antagonists in the Middle East and no one can doubt that that is precisely what she will do as soon as she is able to. Nuclear Armageddon Iranian style….close and getting closer every day.
Iran’s relentless, singleminded pursuit of nuclear weapons and whether her attempt to become a nuclear power will be allowed to succeed….the last of our defining issues.
Big issues lead to big questions and these are no exception.
Can and will Islamization be stopped and reversed and do Americans and other Westerners have the sense, strength and courage to do it?
Can and will the financial, social and military decline of the United States be stopped and reversed and can and will Americans maintain their democratic values and institutions and keep Obama from acting as a quasi dictator?
Can and will Iran be prevented from becoming a nuclear power and can and will her nuclear ambitions be thwarted?
Can and will freedom and democracy in America and the West survive?
And fight like hell to make sure that the answer to all of the questions is yes.
While you still can.
