The Destruction of Civility

 

Some cynics I know whose idea of civility is simply saying, “Who cares,” claim that civility is overrated and not really required in the world today. Our thought when hearing this is that we have a question we silently pass over in our minds of whether civilization is necessary in these people’s world or is that too overrated and not really required in the world today. We believe that civility is a prerequisite for civilization for without the cooperation and polite exchange of ideas, civilization ends up in tatters and will not function. The United States and much of the world are heading for a collapse of their common civilization which in the end will be traced by those who come along to study the failings of Western Civilization will conclude that first there was a breakdown in civility which was instrumental in the downfall of the civilization. There will likely be many theories on what drove the people to such a point that they no longer could find any common ground and to totally dismiss one another leading to total societal dysfunction and dissolution breaking the civilization down. The common theme will likely include the breakdown in communication where the various divisions in the society would refuse to accept any contrary view demanding that only they have the right path and because they know they are correct, they never need to tolerate the idiots on the other side or who hold contrary opinions.

 

In the United States, the lack of civility is so obvious that it has caused people to actually unfriend people on Facebook and other social networks banning receiving any posts from these former online friends. Europe has suffered from varying degrees of political poisoned discourse where political differences would lead to uncivil behavior between groups. What is even more worth noting is that some of this behavior can occur between groups whose politics appear to be of the same ilk, either left or right, nationalist or universalist, libertarian or authoritarianism or other definitions of political thought where two parties fall into the same general definition yet go after one another as if they were opposing adversaries having disagreements over near everything, not over slight differences. The levels of incivility in politics has reached levels not seen since probably the 1860’s and the slavery abolition movement. According to Wikipedia, covering political incivility, “Eight out of 10 Americans believe that the lack of civil discourse in the political system is a serious problem. Eighty-two percent of American respondents to a 2011 survey felt that political advertisements were too “nasty” and 72 percent believed that political commercials that attacked the opponent were “inappropriate”.” The levels and amount of political and public incivility have become even more overblown and in some ways appear to be cracking the very fabric of the society. When marriages have broken up over the spouses having voted for opposing candidates in the last Presidential elections, business partners have dissolved their businesses in order to go their separate ways after their disagreements in the last election, and family members have declared other members of their families dead to them over their votes in the last election are all signs of excessive dysfunction and an excessively high level of incivility to points where it could easily become harmful to the society itself. Such fracturing in a society has to be something very dangerous and destructive which could lead to a societal breakdown or a breakdown of the political system.

 

Either societal or political fractures are of such destructive capabilities that either can lead to the destruction of any nation no matter its size or presumed sophistication. The United States is one nation to have survived the ultimate fracturing of their nation which resulted in their Civil War. The recovery from that division and war took a great deal of effort and time but was facilitated by an eventual forgiveness between the two sides and the coming industrial revolution which massively altered the face of the society and the need for slaves to work on the plantation farms. They were replaced by tractors and harvesting machinery which replaced manpower. America had entered the age of machines and she never looked back. Now their society is facing new threats where the two sides in the political front have drifted so far apart that there appears to be no common ground. Politics is dependent upon there existing neutral ground where the two opposing parties can meet when designing and passing legislation and keeping the government functioning. When the two separate sides, be they a ruling coalition and the opposition as in much of Europe or the two main parties as in the United States, there need be some area where the opposing sides can meet finding common ground for the common good of the nation. But when the two sides feel that they must oppose everything from the other side no matter what because their voters refuse to admit there can be any agreements, then the attitude is poisonous enough to cause a complete breakdown of function by the government. All which would be required to bring such a government into collapse or bring a coalition to calling for a new set of election is for a few members of the majority to fall out of line and join the opposing side ending any majority.

This is partially what President Trump has been facing with the ‘Never Trump’ Republicans throwing the Senate completely beyond any ability to accomplish anything meaningful. When one political party is voting as a block against every effort and a sector of the majority party have decided to support the minority party, such a situation easily would lead to what appears to be a virtual coup. But the problems in Washington D.C. are a small part of the problem which could be resolved by the midterm elections, especially if President Trump can gain support in the Senate against historic records. But the political split which is so severe in the United States is also echoed in the public. The split in the United States is easily defined, the people on the coasts and living in the major cities and the more rural citizens and those in smaller cities and towns. The split also is between those who are religious attending church or synagogue and those who are secularists. This might be another reason why the two sides are so far apart and cannot find anything in common. One can only guess whether the split will heal or if one side of the political split will become preeminent and eclipse the other side. We anticipate that the arguments currently invigorating the United States may subside once one side prevails. The one thing we can likely guarantee is this conflict will continue throughout the entire Presidency of Donald Trump and possibly beyond should President Trump be reelected and Vice President Pence follow him into office. We can see the eventuality of the Republican moving even further to the left while their base moves further to the right which will destroy the party. Once such becomes apparent, then the Democrats will begin to win every election as why vote for the Republican if they represent pretend Democrats when you can elect a real Democrat. Eventually the former and now disgruntled Republicans and the remnants who remain truly conservative establish a new party, the Republicans will merge with the Democrats and a new split will appear, but this may be too late to prevent the United States becoming exactly the same as the European nations which will be the end of the Western World as they will no longer have any military to protect them. Without the United States military, the West will collapse and fall to whoever decides to take them over and that will be the death of democratic governance.

The Know-it-Alls Who Know Nothing-at-All

 

There is a group being brought to bear consisting of prominent American Jews, a group of retired, left-wing Israeli military and security officials and an American security think tank seeking to force policies on Israel of their own divinations using the next President of the United States and the auspices of his office to amplify their murmurings into a cacophony of important cackling. These leftist know-it-alls do actually understand one thing very clearly, namely that their ideas would not fly in Israel even if the most leftist of coalitions were to win the next elections. They are completely aware that the political winds in Israel have changed and their kind of leftist has all but ceased to exist. Still, these know-it-alls know that their ideas are the only policies which contain even the slightest slivers of sanity and peace can only be attained if they are placed in charge. They are aware that only through threat, blackmail, and placing Israel in a dangerous position will their ideas be brought successfully to the floor and then granted the obvious merit that they contain. Their plans are the same old plan of Israel make concessions in exchange for chimera of peace accepted if only Israel would take a few last steps demanding these final concessions be offered in writing and which are taken in pocket as the end of the usefulness of another round where any concession made by Abbas resulted in another lesson in Taqiyya, the Islamic religiously inspired art of lying to the non-Muslim in order to advance Islam through lies and deceptions. Israelis on both sides of the Isle are now aware of the deceptions and false promises from Abbas and wish to have no part in any dealings under the pale shadow which is Taqiyya as even the most foolish only play a fool’s gambit repeatedly so many times being burned each time before refusing to return to the poisoned well. But such wisdom is tossed carelessly aside as these know-it-alls who just know that this time their offer will charm the snake charmer and force him to play their tune in directing the venomous serpent.

 

Ron Kampeas of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) wrote a position paper they published titled Pro-Israel heavyweights press hard for 2 states which contains much truth about the composition of the group and their designs to make for themselves a name even if it destroys Israel and results in more murdered Jews. The article explains their plan as it currently sits as, “Two complementary U.S. and Israeli working papers to be launched next week propose immediate actions Israel can take to prepare the ground for two states and a longer-term security structure that aims to satisfy Palestinian ambitions for sovereignty and Israeli security needs.” They point out that these papers are, quote, “are radical departures from the policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s current government.” And then even here the author jumps neck deep into the mired swamp of discontentment repeating the leftist canard that the Netanyahu coalition is, “perhaps the most right wing in Israeli history.” The qualifier is to convey that perhaps even as misguided as these leftist groups and individuals may be; the Netanyahu government is equally strident and thus deserving of being undermined if required for peace. The article quotes the Israel Policy Forum board member Alan Solow as having stated, “One doesn’t know what Israel’s government is going to look like in a week,” implying a threat to the coalition that they hold the power to sweep in on new elections which would necessarily bring a more receptive governance. He also criticized Israel more freely as they see the prospects of two states diminishing as more in the Israeli public see it as the moribund error of the past which need remain in their past. Solow insists, “Taking on the perspective from those in the pro-Israel community, the only reasonable Zionist solution is to have two states for two people. Every time a new administration comes into office, these issues get a fresh look, that’s a historical fact.” All of these comments are attempting to make their position appear as the inevitable and only working solution to what has proven to be an intractable problem. Finally they drag out the bogey-man monsters of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and hedge funder Paul Singer, who have sharply hawkish outlooks. They add that Sheldon Adelson endorsed Trump making him out to be as unhinged as the candidate appears to be as part of his antics to defray his liabilities such as lack of in-depth knowledge of foreign affairs and the plights of the Middle Class. They have set the stage and all is ready for their grand entrance.

 

The Two States for Two Peoples Living in Peace and Security canard has been dragged around and reinflated after each time Mahmoud Abbas, or Yasser Arafat before him, launched an Intifada blowing gaping holes in their balloon using bombs, rocks, Molotov cocktails, knifings, car rammings, suicide bombing, ambush, rockets and outright open warfare. The Arab World has been insisting they will rip out the heart of Israel and strangle it just as soon as the latest Israeli surrender has been duly passed and reentered only to patch it up for another destruction once it has been repaired and a new monetary supplication been added with all insisting that the Palestinian Authority (PA) will accept their proposal outright simply because they know it must. Such faith in the face of adversity is touching and need be honored; but honored does not necessarily mean heeded and obeyed unquestioningly. The repackaging of the identical two state solution then trotting it out with it having been repainted a different color which presumably makes it once again new and worthy solution is so full of holes it is not worth reiterating its fallacies. Suffice it to say that we have all been there, tried that, and found it wanting. The difference between us and those Americans and leftist old school Israelis is that we have watched one botched peace attempt after another all having the same items in common, the idea that only through two states for two people can peace be attained. Perhaps it is time to try a new approach with fresh and new ideas.

 

Allow us to try and propose an idea whose time has come. The Gaza retreat with the rise of Hamas to rule the area had rained down rockets with ever deeper strikes into Israel as the result of function of Iran and/or the Muslim Brotherhood both having some successes in providing rocket motors and even guidance systems used in making mere rockets into guided missiles capable of greater accuracy and thus a greater threat as the increased ranging has placed western Jerusalem within their strike distances out of Gaza; just imagine their range if fired out of Judea and Samaria. Any lasting peace must initially recognize some brutal truths. First and foremost is that there is no difference between the methods of the Islamic State and Hamas and there is no difference in the end goals of Hamas and Fatah, the PLO which spawned the PA, a sanitized venomous snake who despite having the outside washed still had poison readied from the insides. Thus any lands handed over completely to the PA is all but certain to become lands controlled by Hamas and thus the Islamic State taking the fight and presumable glory as the ones who defeated the Israeli contagion from in their midst. Knowing this makes allowing complete control over Judea, Samaria and a redivided Jerusalem is tantamount to a suicide pact with the devil, and not necessarily the devil you know as was proven so effectively in Gaza. Thus it has become evident that the original idea of two states for two people needs to be reevaluated. There is no existing two state solution which would ever provide security and peace for the Israelis and would be a constant threat at ten times the efficiency and abilities than was ever brought to bear upon the lands of Israel. A return to the Green Line would permit those in the area of the Judean Hills to overlook the industrial and residential heartlands of Israel and this would be tantamount to a death warrant. Thus a new and radical concept need be advised, what would have been a radical idea before the Stabbing Intifada which is now a necessity and further has a built in guarantee in that the plan does not require Mahmoud Abbas to accept or sign a single piece of paper, it just demands that he fly a course as it will be placed before him. Even if he throws a temper tantrum and refuses to breathe until he gets his way we should get used to seeing him with puffy cheeks and tears streaming down his chest. It will all make for good drama but further it will make for a solid end to the impasse.

 

Our plan is to simply offer Mahmoud Abbas what we stress will be the final and only offer available and he can take it within seventy-two hours (three days) in which to prepare for the solution being dictated by the liberating power which freed these lands from foreign occupation now exercising their rights under international law and as such this is the final offer and the clock is ticking. The offer for Abbas is he can preside over a semi-autonomous region containing all of Area A and selected parts of Area B as depicted in a map provided him. The semiautonomous region will be permitted a police and security force which will be limited to light weapons. Heavy weapons such as crew served large machine guns over thirty calibers and over will be limited or banned. Armored vehicles will not be permitted as will artillery, rockets, rocket propelled grenades and MANPADS (form of anti-aircraft intercept missile) be banned from their semi-autonomous region. Self-rule within reason will be permitted as will IDF patrols in keeping the peace as required. Schools will be run by the Israeli Ministry of Education and any Madrassa or other schools located in the region will need be licensed and its curriculum be monitored by the Ministry of Education and the Knesset making sure they represent the correct history and are not instigating any terrorist principles or other mix of violent opposition of the governance. Israeli law will be applied throughout all Israel making all places equal before the law. There will be no mandatory IDF service required from the semi-autonomous citizens though they would be eligible and permitted to serve. All the residents of the region will be listed as resident aliens but may petition the Israeli government for citizenship and should they pass a background check and after they have relocated inside an Israeli village or town. They will be required to take a course and prove proficiency of Jewish history as well as Israeli and Zionist histories. The people who reside in the semi-autonomous zone would also receive lessons about Judaic and Israeli histories. Any person committing a terrorist act will have their family exiled along with themselves after they serve any prison time they may receive at their trial. The citizens of the semi-autonomous zone would be subject to Israeli law in addition to their own laws. The semi-autonomous zone would require any laws it imposed would not be contrary to the laws of the State of Israel.

The unfortunate affairs Jews have had with any form of Palestinian political entities would require that the zone be merely semi-autonomous Zone instead of a full-fledged nation is strictly due to providing security and protection for Israel as placing a well-armed separate nation on the heights overlooking Israel where exactly what occurred in Gaza taking place in Judea and Samaria would result in Israel being required to reassert complete control over the Palestinian entity but once granted freedom they would receive recognition in rapid succession by the numerous European nations and the United States. This would result as just mentioned with a belligerent force perched over the beating heart of Israel holding the stake to drive through that selfsame heart. That has been and will remain the reason that Israel must never return to the Green Line, the 1949 armistice lines and is also why any peace between Israel and the Arab world will require their recognizing Israel in her original borders from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. That is the reality which will remain in place for as long as the Arabs, especially the Arab ‘Palestinians,’ desire the destruction of Israel. Lunacy is any plan which forces Israel to return to the pre-Six Day War borders knowing what is known and applying even the slightest bit of logic to the situation. Israel must realize that much of the world including leftist Jews who would not be caught dead returning home are cavalier about Israel and place their leftist utopian propaganda above the concrete facts facing Israel. That explains the Martin Indyks, Dennis Rosses, Aaron David Millers, Jeffrey Goldbergs making statements which would sound more normal coming from the mouth of Khaled Mashal, leader of Hamas. One can wonder but never explain Jews who would sacrifice other Jews or the Jewish State at the altar of political correctness, the modern day version of Baal.

 

This article was written earlier for other reasons, but bears repeating. France had held its first conference with leaders from around the world to solve the Arab/Israeli conflict. They planned to hold a second conference before the end of the year under the idea that they would have a better resolution. Their initial conference, despite not including Israel, was unable to agree on a final position. Part of their confidence is their realization that perhaps all that President Barack Obama needs is a forum to present his solution. They may even be hoping that any resolution would be followed up with Security Council binding resolutions. The French are actually doing this in hopes that it will enhance their international standing. They never have recovered from Waterloo. As with all solutions that do not include Israel, this one too will be unenforceable. The idea that any nation would attempt to invade the lands of the fourth most powerful nuclear armed nation in the world is as ludicrous as it sounds insane.

The familiar line we are getting about the impending Iran nuclear agreement is that we cannot trust Iran. I do not believe that is the most worrisome problem as much as our inability to trust the United States President and Secretary of State to be honest or even for their claims and comments on what is and is not permitted and their ramifications to even contain a scintilla of truth, and that is a major trust problem. Since I have initially claimed that trusting Iran is not the main problem, perhaps we should first discuss what I mean by trusting Iran and then we can go to the root problem of President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry and the entire support staff and how far we can even trust the major advisors to the President.

 

President Obama, as almost everyone with eyes and ears has figured out, has a serious deficit in the foreign policy department which makes his domestic policies appear to be some of the greatest achievements in all of history. To claim the President Obama’s handling of America’s foreign dealings have been a blighted catastrophe may be giving them too much credit for actual achievement. The first improvement might be for him to stop whatever he is doing and then to pursue the exact opposite track. This would mean walking out of the Iran negotiations and reapplying the stiffest sanctions and working to enjoin as many other nations and international alliances to join in this pressure forcing the Iranian regime to realize they can either enter talks with an honest intent to reach some form of agreement with an in depth set of inspection routines which also includes snap inspection at the IAEA’s preference and not the paltry attempt at appearing to allow such inspections when they are restrained to only make snap request for permission under the current stipulations being discussed. President Obama has produced a strawman which he has burned in effigy at least a thousand times and has also added an additional inferred quality to his strawman which gives it the stench of one of the most horrid and ancient hatreds of planet Earth. Going back and listening to President Obama’s own words and he interchanges the strawman of the only other choice is war with claims that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is demanding the United States risk going to war with Iran. The President has labeled any opposition to his plan as surrendering to that warmonger from Israel, Netanyahu thus invoking the specter of anti-Semitism. The problem is that we cannot expect or trust that President Obama has anything other than the surrender of the entirety of United States control or even influence in the future of the Middle East including providing any protection for Israel, or perhaps centered on neutering Israeli power by granting Iran hegemonic power in the Middle East potentially greater than Israel possesses. President Obama has already made the suggestion that if only Israel would be rid of its nuclear arsenal then perhaps there might be a possibility that Iran would immediately end their dedicated nuclear weapons programs and unless Israel were to dismantle their nuclear arsenal and potentially render their Dimona reactor inert and permanently unusable then Israel should expect to accept all blame for any deficiencies which may prove to be resulting from any Iran deal President Obama and company are capable of producing. The entirety of any shortcoming will be blamed on Israel in general and Prime Minister Netanyahu in particular by President Obama and the leftist media will add the responsibility and blame for Iran becoming a nuclear power by placing the onus on Israel. That has been the message and it will only be made to be heard louder and clear as a bell when the perfidy of President Obama is committing in order to make a deal. President Obama is arranging for any positives that are reaped from his Iran deal, which will likely be defined mathematically as the null or empty set, while all blame for the deficiencies being caused by Israeli intransigence preventing a broader deal which would have made the entire Middle East nuclear free and immediately breaking out in song and flowers sprouting across the lands. That is the crux of the treachery being committed by President Obama and his setup escape clause is, ‘blame Israel’ not he.

 

Now let’s proceed on to Iran and why Iran can be trusted. Simply put, the Iranian leadership and especially Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei have been brutally honest, which is more than what can be stated about President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry or the dire leftist media in their reporting, or more accurately, their lack of reporting on the situation. The Iranian leadership has been very up front in denying that they will permit any inspections ever on their military facilities, period! They have insisted that there be only scheduled inspections of which they are to be given ample notice and that they hold the final say on where and what the inspectors can visit and see, control over any samples taken, and generally be permitted to skirt around any potential troubles their nuclear program inspection might pose. They have flat out stated they will be utilizing their most recent and improved centrifuges which have the capability of producing weapons grade as much as 95% enriched uranium of 3.5%, that is three and one half percent, in a single cascade thus removing the troublesome storage of 20% enriched uranium as would have been required by their previous centrifuges. Further, they have assured all that should they design and produce even more efficient centrifuges in the future which would allow for a cascade needing fewer centrifuges and thus less likely to fail, then they will be exchanging the older centrifuges with the latest and greatest centrifuges no matter what President Obama is claiming. Probably the greatest of the Iranian claims is that there will be no restrictions on their missile program which since the beginning of the nuclear negotiations came under the tutelage of President Obama and his band of merry-making advisors who may only speak of the greatness of the emperor and his new policies back in 2009 has advanced from barely being capable of reaching Greece or Egypt or placing a satellite in near Earth orbit for a few revolutions to now being capable of striking France and Algeria and placing communications or spy satellites into orbit (which potentially means they could possibly strike anywhere on the globe with a fair amount of difficulty but still within their technical abilities).

 

Then there were the comments glossed over and quickly forgotten by the Western leftist media as Iranian ‘elected’ President Hassan Rouhani had claimed, in what is dismissed as ancient history and being long before he rose to the Presidency as a new and now suddenly moderate, what he had stated in what may as well have been a former life way back in 2001, “If one day … the Islamic world will be equipped with weapons available to Israel now … the employment of even one atomic bomb inside Israel will wipe it off the face of the earth but would only do damage to the Islamic world.” Recounting his term as the Lead Negotiator for Iran at the nuclear talks back in 2003, when the talks included only France, Britain, and Germany, he boasted that using a smile and a few jokes he completely disarmed the European negotiators convincing them he was a moderate reformer determined to reach an amicable agreement and then proceeded to drag out the talks. When he was assigned to lead the negotiations for Iran he boasted, “The day we invited the three European ministers, only 10 centrifuges were spinning at Natanz. We could not produce one gram of U4 or U6 [uranium hexafluoride]. We did not have the heavy water, we could not produce yellowcake, our total production of centrifuges inside the country was 150. We wanted to complete all of these, we needed time.” Referring to his use of deception President Rouhani related, “While Iran has a right within the nuclear non-proliferation regime to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes it has decided voluntarily to suspend all uranium enrichment and processing activities as defined by the IAEA. The statement of Tehran in that declaration, there was a resolution that all [uranium enrichment and processing] must stop but we did not allow it.” Wearing an example of that gleaming and disarming famous smile, Rouhani boasts about Iran completing the construction of the Bushehr nuclear reactor as well as the Arak heavy water and plutonium producing reactor complex while Iran was increasing the number of centrifuges from 150 to 1,700 at Natanz facility. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu summed up the Rouhani approach and stylized deception he has packaged especially for what Rouhani perceives as Western fools easily led to there they wish to be led while delivering exactly what the Iranians desire stated, Iranian President Rouhani, “he’s criticizing his predecessor for being a wolf in wolf’s clothing. His strategy is to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Smile and build a bomb.” All it takes is a smile and a few jokes, wonderful.

 

There are other items we can be assured Iran honestly intends to follow through on and that they have announced repeatedly but the leftist media only sees the Cheshire Cat and the face away while the smile lingers. Some of the more pertinent claims include but are not limited to the following. Iran will be permitted to operate under these agreements nineteen thousand centrifuges. The Iranian military bases will be off-limits to inspectors who are merely spies for the Western powers. Iran refuses to answer the questions about previous activities which may have been operated by its military. We will keep all military activities secret and beyond the sight of the inspectors. Why is it that Israel is permitted to have hundreds of nuclear weapons but Iran is not allowed any such devices; that is an inequality which must not be permitted to stand. Iranian internal affairs are not to be interfered with by the Western Powers. And then there always is that favorite around which they have built a number of confabs which were more celebratory than they were policy in their appearance and the reporting by the mainstream media but if viewed and the speeches words were heeded, these were some of the most threatening and frightening celebratory events which targeted the conquest of the west but especially insisted that at their first possible convenience once they had the ability that Iran had a special treatment for the United States and Israel as stated in the banners and the name of these conventions, “A World Without Zionism or America.”

 

That should be sufficient to send a chill down the spine of every western democracy, republic or free society by any governance because Iran is out to conquer and destroy every last one of us. They have already started to spread their range of control which currently is taking a drubbing in Syria, but be assured that when all is over and the dust settles back on the rubble that Iran will have retained Damascus and the roads into Lebanon as that is their minimum requirement. The only way this can be avoided may be even more ominous as it would take making Isaiah 17:1, “The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” a reality, something that may already be about to become fact as the only question is what will happen should Damascus fall to ISIS or al-Nusra. Would Iran turn Damascus into nothing more than rubble neighboring a fully functional international airport reserved for the private and military use by Iran? Of course they would as Iran is willing to put the entire world to the torch as by so doing they bring their salvation back from the well to deliver them the world for out of the chaos the Mahdi would return. The leadership of Iran is completely infested with what are known as ‘Twelvers’ who believe that only by spreading war and its misery and chaos far and wide encompassing the world will their perfect end times world be founded. They so not fear war, they worship it and that taints their every decision. This added to everything else we have seen from Iran would lead any sane person to believe that they will say anything while doing exactly what they believe is necessary to serve their ends. Many have yet to figure out their end desires despite it being unbelievably simple, it is the same destiny as proclaimed by ISIS and included in the Hamas Charter, conquest and purification, read all convert to their version of Islam or die, of society and rid it of all who refuse their superiority in all things starting with their religious beliefs. The sole difference is that ISIS and Hamas are Sunni and Iran Shiite making our final choice limited to who wins, if it is Iran we will all be Shiites or dead, if it is ISIS we will all be Sunnis (their definition which is very likely far more radical than mainline Sunnis) or dead, if it is Hamas we will all be Sunnis (their definition which is very much more radical than mainline Sunnis) or dead. There is an overriding theme to their vision of the future but there is another choice beyond the surrendering to Allah and his designated but self-proclaimed supreme leaders and authoritarian, imperial tormentors and the judgmental inquisitor of all that is acceptable and holy; we can nip this in the bud while it has not fully metastasized and their cancerous imperative spread and gained sufficient power to complete their fantasized dreams making their heaven on earth which for many, myself prominently in the category, will be someplace quite a bit less inviting and certainly quite permanent.

 

Humor me a little aside which will lead to one of my favorite Winston Churchill quotes. One has to realize the greatness that was Winston Churchill which could not be completely appreciated until recent events though some of us took his warnings to heart as we saw the coming threat far back. Winston Churchill warned the West about the rise of Nazi horrors and the true nature of Adolph Hitler’s ambitions. For some time the West, meaning mostly Europe, the United States and the other western powers have had the realization, or perhaps more of a belief, that the world could not be conquered by one nation without the total destruction of the world. They theorized that anybody even fathoming as a possible theory the conquest of the world would inevitably see the radical increase in damage and destructive consequences of war, especially the use of nuclear weapons which brought forth the Japanese surrender, this interpolating would see the folly of attempting to conquer the world as doing so would bring about its destruction and one would be inheriting a smoldering and mostly uninhabited world taken back to the Stone Age. Unfortunately, the whole of humanity has not figured this out or they have conceived of a plan by which the world will not be entirely laid waste and the conquest and subjugation of the world and its population is still possible. Winston Churchill warned the world about Stalin and Communism coining the terminology of ‘Iron Curtain’ in his speech given at Westminster College of Fulton, Missouri, where he stated,

“From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Soviet sphere, and all are subject in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and, in some cases, increasing measure of control from Moscow. Athens alone – Greece with its immortal glories – is free to decide its future at an election under British, American and French observation.”

Finally, Winston Churchill defined the threat and nature of Islam in his original writing of “The River War” when it was first published as a two-volume set edition in 1899, but this selection was removed when the book was condensed into one volume and republished edition in 1902 though no reason could be found for the reasoning other than to shorten the book a number of quotes, especially the longer quotes, as this is, were removed. The quote here defines Winston Churchill’s cognitive and conclusive notes of the pervasive religious shortcoming of resisting the advances of science but mostly he relates his observations of both individual Muslims and the overriding societal whole under Islam. Let’s let the quote speak for itself.

“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”

Lastly I would like to close with one final quote which addresses in its time the threat which was being ignored in Europe and the possibility of the threat becoming so overwhelming as to make victory impossible. We may be witnessing the exact same scenario concerning current threats largely because our political leaders are too intimidated to speak the truth. They have been cowed by Political Correctness which has blinkered their eyes and closed their mouths. We can either hope and pray that our leaders collectively awaken from their stupor and rub the war weariness from their eyes and see the danger lurking just around the corner should certain events take a turn for the worse and we wait too long hoping that what we fear is not what we wish to avoid so what we see we visualize as a lesser threat which can be resolved without risk. If our violence averted society rejects even the just war then we will face extermination or at the very least the inversion and destruction of the freedoms we enjoy but refuse to defend. Winston Churchill described this scenario far better than I ever will as his mastery of the language was exquisite while mine is somewhat more of a blunt instrument beating people over the head repeatedly if that is what it takes. Churchill wrote

“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
