The thwarted airliner attacks last month prove that democracy does not add up to peace when it comes to Islamist-jihadists. Most of the terrorists arrested were British citizens, some 2nd generation. If, after being born and raised in a free, western democratic nation, they still want to kill innocents, slaughter women and babies, destroy the state of Israel, initiate a new holocaust against Jewish people, and eradicate Western Civilization from the face of the earth, then no amount of democracy will ever change that.
There are 2 million Muslims in the U.K. In a recent poll, 81% of them said that they considered themselves Muslims before they considered themselves British. In America, towns like Deerborn, Michigan and Oakland, California house communities of U.S.-born citizens of Arab/Isamic heritage that actually hate America. They only part of American culture they embrace is the Hip-Hop Gansta culture.
Muslim terrorists don’t identify with the country in which they live, they identify with all other Islamic-jihadists. Many of us in the West make the mistake of thinking that people in the Middle East think of themselves, as we do, as being citizens of one country or another. They don’t. In the Middle East they really don’t think of themselves as “Iraqis,” or “Iranians,” they think in terms of their tribes. And this is the fundamental problem with attempting to “democratize the Middle East.” Much of the time, free elections in Arab and Islamic countries with result in radical Islamist leaders getting elected, as witnessed in Palestine and Lebanon.
It is high time for America, along with Britain and our other Allies to straightforwardly, and loudly join forces, armed forces that is, with Israel against the Islamo-fascists. The bad guys have very clearly identified themselves and their aims – the good guys need to identify themselves as well. Iran and Syria need to be at long last confronted and dealt with in an all out assault. For starters, I’d carpet bomb Damascus and Teheran. After that, I’d clean out Lebanon once and for all. After that, we can play it by ear. It is well past time to let the Islamic fascists know that the West is not yet ready to be Islamo-sized.
Until the imams stop preaching hatred, until the mosques and schools stop teaching death to their children, until the Islamic cells are destroyed everyplace they exist, until the “good Muslims” rise up and condemn the jihadists, we in the West must continue the fight over there – be it Iraq or Afghanistan or Iran or Syria. We have no choice; the option ultimately will be the end of Western Civilization if we don’t do battle.
So, if it is not democracy that will change the Islamic/Arab minds, what will? The answer is complete military defeat. Islamo-fascism needs to be defeated once and for all. Just as the imperialist Japanese were defeated; just as the Nazi Germans were defeated; that is how we need to begin the process of changing this culture of death – with all out military victory. To coin a phrase, these people have to be scared straight. That must happen BEFORE you start talking about initiating democratic elections or rebuilding infrastructure. They want a holy war? Let’s give them holy hell like they’ve never dreamed.
Yes, it will mean we must put aside our politically correct mentality for the duration. War means killing people, so civilians will be killed. It is too bad, but we didn’t start this thing. Large cities must be bombed. All infrastructure (military, transportation, factories, utilities, etc.) has to be taken out. We have got to bring them to their knees. If we lose our will, if can’t allow ourselves to win this war militarily, we’ll never be able to win it at all. We must break their spirit before we can change any minds. I know it sounds hard and ruthless but that is what it takes to win wars.
Once the war is over then we can go in and rebuild, just as we did in Japan and Europe. But the enemy must be soundly defeated first. We will rebuild schools and mosques but these will be schools and mosques that are friendly to the West. We will oversee them; making sure they do not go back to teaching hate. If this means that Islam itself needs to be “redefined” then so be it. This will undoubtedly mean a commitment of many decades. One thing is for sure; until Islam is cleaned up there can be no real democracy in the hearts of these people.
This war of civilizations will be bloody and long. We cannot afford to lose it.
