The Third World War has begun and it is not what we expected. America and the Western world are facing a danger no country has ever faced before. Our enemy is not a government nor is it a country. We are fighting enemies who are willing to kill themselves in order to kill us. This war makes our conventional Army, Navy and Air forces impotent. There is practically no defense against this kind of warfare.
The enemy is Islam who is waging war against our civilization. Our government and the Left, living in a politically correct universe, insist that acts of terror are perpetrated by extremists. Islam, they say, is a peaceful religion and the majority of Muslims are law abiding citizens – ignoring the fact that these peaceful citizens were celebrating the 9/11 attacks from the West Bank to Jakarta. To say most Muslims are moderates and have nothing to do with the fanatical Islamic terrorists is like saying the Germans were a highly cultured, peaceful people and the mass murder of Jews was perpetrated by National Socialist extremists. There are many striking similarities between Nazi Germany and the Muslim world of today that this current government and the Left have chosen to ignore.
The Nazis’ doctrine called for supremacy of the Aryan race and the extermination of the Jews. I am sure that the Left (which has many Jewish supporters) would consider those politics extreme.
However the Left fails to recognize that like the Nazis’ doctrine, the Koran segregates the human race into two groups: Muslims and infidels and just like the Nazis’ doctrine the Koran calls for the killing of infidels and specifically Jews.
The Muslims’ view of the world is that they possess absolute knowledge and God-given supreme right over the infidels.
In both instances we are dealing with one group of people (if one wants to call them people) who claim superiority over the rest of the human race and seek to have them destroyed or enslaved by this supposed superior breed.
We should make no mistake: Islam is not just a religion but also a political totalitarian movement that just like Communism or Fascism encompasses a political movement whose fanatical agenda includes racial supremacy and a Marxist Utopian, egalitarian standard of virtue. However, unlike Communism or Fascism which were adopted by countries that could be defeated, Islam is represented by unlimited human resources around the globe that cannot be defeated in strictly military terms.
The Muslims of the world are united in the struggle to provide moral, financial and logistical support to those who are on the front line of war with the infidels. That silent but effective support allows terrorists to avoid security forces, survive, plan, recruit new members and provide training.
Islam’s strategy is brutally simple. Remember, the Arabs invented arithmetic and in their twisted minds it works like this: Every time a suicide bomber blows himself up he/she murders dozens and hundreds and potentially thousands of infidels. Since the Muslim population is about 25% of the world’s population they are convinced that arithmetic is on their side and that the host of tragedies they are prepared to inflict on this country will eventually exceed the level of our endurance and we will surrender to Islam.
The Left’s position on the Muslim threat is inconsistent, immoral and reprehensible. But we should not be surprised: The Left did not consider Hitler extreme at the time and supported the proposal to nominate Hitler for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Left has always had a natural attraction to totalitarian, bloody regimes. They admired Stalin, Mao, and in more recent times Castro, Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez.
The West has been in denial of this danger since the early 1970s when the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) began committing terrorist acts against Israelis. The world was silent because the victims were Jews and we were not the Jews. Even worse, the world encouraged the terrorists by awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to the PLO chief terrorist Yasser Arafat. Since then terrorists have taken to Europe, but we are not Europeans; and Asia but we are not Asians. The history of terrorism is reminiscent of what Pastor Martin Niemoller (Lutheran Pastor) described about the Nazis:
In Germany they first came for the Communists
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics
and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
Today the terrorists are at our doorsteps but we still practice appeasement. There are some of us who are perfectly willing to let the Muslims build their Mosque of Triumph in proximity to the destroyed World Trade Center just as they built the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the site of the Second Temple in Jerusalem after conquering the city in the seventh century.
This should be the time for Americans to find out, paraphrasing John Kennedy, whether we are free men standing up to our responsibilities and whether The United States has the will to face up to the enemy.
The father of modern terrorism Vladimir Lenin said: “The terror can be conquered only with greater terror.”
The American challenge is to abandon denial, stop appeasement, face the threat, and use all the means at our disposal to grant the ultimate wish to those who proclaim they love death more that we love life.
