"The Same War" and "Moment of Truth"

Even it is a few days old, read Michael Ledeen's July 11, 2006 "The Same War." Also read David Horowitz's July 14, 2006 "Moment of Truth."

Hat-tip to Jason for that link to Horowitz's article.

Horowitz is 100% spot on. The UN and EU have their own agendas, and Israel's survival is not one of them.

Israel needs to take this opportunity to remove Hezbollah and Hamas from the equation once and for all.

I also agree with the concept of an occupation force in the territories and taking the hate and terrorist admiration out of Pal kids' educational venues. Just no French troops, please!

Well we've already got a role of failed states breeding terrorism. Afghanistan (spreading into Pakistan), Somalia, Sudan, Iraq is degrading and we'll get to add Lebanon to the mix.

This stuff wasn't happening when the Syrians were in control. Looks like Iran is in charge.

Well, as I say. Chcuklenuts fought two wars in the east and Iran won both of them.

What really bugs me about this one is that the Israeli Apartheid Regime is absolutely going to send us a bill.

So, according to the GREAT MR SUCKY, all the problems started about 30 years ago or less???


The part about the troubles spreading from Afghanistan to Pakistan is a real HOOT!!!!


And he also ignores about 10 other countries where Islamofascists are murdering, chopping off heads, and blowing up things!!

MR Ducky, please tell us some more!!

Do you ever tire of convincing everyone you're an idiot? You know, just to change the monotonous pace?

As well as Syria being in conrol as a champion of peace and order.

Why did we bother to fight Hitler Anon?
It was 'real peaceful' when he was in charge.

Oh, why didn't Hesseini have a chance to build his concentration camp in Nablus as planned?

We wouldn' have the problem today, would we.

Just a bit of trivia:
It was Idi Amin Dada who personally proposed resolution in the UN during the General Assembly meeting in 1975 to declare that "Zionism is racism".
The resolution was passed by the General Assembly vote 72 to 35.
All arab states and most African were among those 72.
Since then the language used by the Group of 77 is automatically accepted and used by all marxists and semi marxist organizations and thei followers.
Thia includes this irrational term -Israel-apperheid state.
Irrational - because it was the Muslims who wanted separation from the Jews in 1920, and later total annihilation of any Israeli autonomy.
Mind you there has never been ANY Arab country like Syria, Iraq, Lebanon or whatever.
They all were created at almost the same time as Israel.
Moreover, all those Arab Israelis who remain in Israel do have ALL the same rights, privileges and duties as Jewish Israelis.
This is not so in Muslim countries.
Even the most developed ones like Turkey.

From this source:

Iran heavily invested in North Korean missile program

LONDON — Teheran has been financing Pyongyang's intermediate and ICBM programs for nearly a decade, Western intelligence sources said. The funding has been part of a deal in which North Korea would share missile technology and equipment with Iran.

"Anytime you hear of a North Korean success, translate that directly into an Iranian success," an intelligence source said. "You can be sure that within a few weeks, Iran will receive briefings, training and eventually production expertise from Pyongyang."

Iran is believed to have invested more than $1 billion in North Korean missile development...

I am convinced Ducky has been doing drugs..

Sudan has been a mess for around thirty years with zero US role.

Lebanon was a mess due to the influx of Pseudostinians and Shiites who are not indegenous. Arafats state within a state and massacres of Christians made the place a mess long before the Israelis got there.

Afghanistan was messed up by Communist agression. Toys shaped like mines, chemical warfare and real genocide were commited by Duckys crew.

The section of Pakistan Ducky is complaining about has been known as the lawless region since the days of the Brittish Empire. In a functional world the Pashtuns would have a state. However the cause of the far left is fake indigenous people in Israel as opposed to genuine ones in Afghanistan and Pakistan. A Pashtun state would be able to fix many of the problems.

Iraq is an artifical creation of Sykes Picot. The Assyrians and Kurds were sold out by the French and Brittish who placed them under Arab hegemony. The Shites in the South and in nearby Saudi Arabia should form their own country . This section of Saudi Arabia is also where all the oil is located.

Ducky needs to stop droping acid, stop reading Fanon and Chomsky and get a clue.

You're right. Many of the problems in the Middle East well predate the Bush administration.

For centuries, Muslims have blamed the West for their own internal problems. That attitude of victimology is but one reason why they haven't come into the 21st Century.

Now, the fall of Saddam's regime has emboldened and motivated the Shi'ites and other Muslim factions who are forever looking to the West as the source of all their problems. And I'm still not convinced that Iraq can function as a democracy anytime soon--if ever. Nevertheless, the choice of just waiting for Saddam's regime to continue its doings seems to me to have been immoral and unwise, particularly with regard to our own national security.

I've just ordered my own copy of Mary Habeck's Knowing the Enemy. Published by Yale University Press, the book provides some insights which I haven't found elsewhere.

I have ordered Trifkovics new book that has not made the rounds in our circle.

I also am reading Sowell's chapter on Native American's in Conquest and Culure.

Robert Spencer has a new book coming out this fall. I plan to order that and Trifkovic's latest at the same time.

I'm finding Knowing the Enemy quite useful as a reference. She using sources other than the usual ones.

A lot of the Middle East's problems (as well as the world's in general) can be traced to an innocent foreign policy mistake committed by the United States of America - giving control of France to French-speaking people after taking it from the Germans in World War 2 and, more importantly, before integrating them into Western civilization.

I was somewhat disappointed with Spencer's last offering. Other then the Bat Yeor sections the book was marginal.

At 7/16/2006 6:10 PM, Blogger Always On Watch said...

I think you're referring to The Myth of Islamic Tolerance, which is mostly a compilation and not Spencer's own writing, per se.

Spencer's next book is on MTP--certain to earn him another fatwah.

I can't figure out if people such as daffy are really as assinine as they make themselves appear, or if they just say stupid things to piss us off.

Duck likes to provoke, sometimes for provocation's sake and sometimes to promote discussion. He sometimes tells us "I'm here to help."

At least he's not a spam freak!

True. Few things are more detestable than a spammer.

A spammer is much worse than one who hurls ad hominem epithets.
