Israel is an Infidel nation-state. The war being made on it is the same war being made on other non-Muslim states, such as India, and the same war made by Muslims on non-Muslims in countries already controlled by Muslims, where they can get away with whatever they want. It is the same war made by Muslims on the legal and political institutions of non-Muslim societies in those non-Muslim lands where Muslims have been allowed to settle in numbers large enough to dare to conduct such a war, obviously using means other than outright violence.
Anything that weakens or imperils Israel will be taken by Muslims, and not only by the immediate shock troops of the Jihad — the Slow Jihadists of Fatah or the Fast Jihadists of Hamas — as a sign of Allah’s munificence. It will merely whet, not sate, Arab and Muslim appetites. Any further surrenders of territory by Israel will weaken the effectiveness of the only thing that keeps the peace between Israel and those eager to destroy it — that is, the theory, and practice, of Deterrence, or “Darura.”
And for the same reason, India should be backed to the hilt over Kashmir, or in any war with Muslim Pakistan. For if Kashmir tomorrow were entrusted to Muslim rule, the Hindus remaining would be, slowly but surely, driven out, and Kashmir completely Islamized. Then Muslims in Pakistan, Islam-ruled Kashmir, Bangladesh, and within India itself, would merely set their sights now on repossessing, for Islam, the rest of India.
It was the armed forces of Israel that destroyed the Osirak Reactor. At the time the American government, headed by George Walker Bush, was outraged and condemned the operation. We know better now. It was the armed forces of Israel that recently bombed the nuclear project in Syria that had been placed there by the Iranians, thus performing a service for Infidels and even for Sunni Muslims alarmed about the ambitions of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Israeli security services and military have excellent intelligence and agents who possess, as native speakers, the relevant languages. They know the Middle East and they know the Arabs, even if their government does not, it seems, understand the permanent relevance of Islam. Furthermore, Israel is an unshakeable ally of the United States — unshakeable no matter how badly the American government sometimes treats it. And that is because Israel is part of the same Western world, shares the same civilization. The same cannot be said for the sinister and meretricious Arab “allies” such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The former is not now and never has been an ally of the United States. The latter is only an “ally” insofar that the corrupt regime is willing to do the minimum the Americans require of it in order to keep those billions of dollars in aid flowing in. But stop that aid, and the Egyptians will turn against America. The Egyptians are already running diplomatic interference for Sudan over Darfur. Egypt also allowed the smuggling of huge quantities of missiles and other military equipment through those hundreds of tunnels in Gaza that Israel is now forced, at such great cost, to deal with. Egypt’s official media have eagerly broadcast the darkest antisemitic nonsense (even a television series based on The Protocols). The Egyptian masses are violently anti-American, despite or perhaps because of that nearly $3 billion a year in American aid (which allows the corrupt rulers the res, or something, to be corrupt about).
The big mistake of the Americans was pushing Israel to surrender the Sinai. It should have been obvious, but apparently was not, that Egypt would pocket the Sinai and then proceed to violate every promise it had made under the Camp David Accords about fostering friendly relations with, and ending hostile propaganda against, Israel. And it should also have been obvious, but was not to the likes of Carter and Brzezinski, that if the Sinai was to be given away, it should have been given not to Egypt, but to the United States, and the three large and modern airbases that the Israelis had built there used by the American Air Force. Of course, Carter and Brzezinski were the two men who abandoned the Shah when his regime might have been saved, and who had such touching faith in Khomeini as a “man of faith” who, therefore, must — so Carter thought — be a swell guy because that’s what “men of faith” are in his narrow schoolgirl view of the world. Israel would not have minded. And Egypt? Egypt was starting to get what by now is more than $70 billion, and the Egyptians would have had a hard time explaining why they would not welcome American airbases in the Middle East, right there in the Sinai.
But of course American governments are afraid of the Arabs. They are afraid to ask anything of them as a quid pro quo. They have, even in their giving of aid, taken to adopting the classic attitude of the Jizyah-payers of yore: that is, they give the aid as if it were their duty. The Muslim recipients (Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Gazan Arabs and the “West Bank” Arabs) all receive the aid they get from the Americans and other Infidels not with any growing gratitude, but as by right, as if they are due that American aid.
No, the bargain for America, and for other Infidels menaced by Islam, is Israel’s military might, for it is that which, in the Middle East, in the end has carried the ball again and again and again — defeating Nasser, who was so dangerous, defeating the Soviet effort in Egypt in the 1973 War, destroying the Osirak Reactor, destroying the Iranian-Syrian joint venture in nuclear weaponry, and taking on both Hezbollah, when the Lebanese were incapable of doing so, and now Hamas. Yet there is little understanding, and not enough appreciation, for all that Israel does to defend the West and Infidels everywhere, when it defends itself. Instead, we are asked to believe, by some — by smiling Arab diplomats, for example — to ignore Islam, to ignore London and Amsterdam and Beslan and Mumbai and New York and Washington — and to believe that what is in the Qur’an, Hadith, and Sira hardly matters. They insist that if only Israel is properly pressured, and deliberately diminished or dimidiated in favor of the utterly phony “Palestinian people,” all manner of things shall be well. It’s nonsense, but for those too lazy to learn about Islam, or too afraid about what they have learned or what they think they may learn, and the duty it would then place on them to both instruct and protect those they govern, it’s a plausible story. Why not believe it? It makes things so much easier, it means we never have to really think about the Money Weapon, campaigns of Da’wa, and demographic conquest, by Muslims, in the Bilad al-Kufr, or Lands of the Infidels. Yes, it makes things so much easier, if you model your policy-planning on the fabled ostrich whose sand, of course, can be helpfully supplied by any Arab despot. After all, they have so much of it.
