Many of us today ask the question of whether war between Iran and Israel will begin.
And related questions as well. Will there will be a land operation, or all will the Israelis conduct an air attack upon Iran, bombing its nuclear facilities?
Will this conflict be the beginning of the third world war, or it will it be only between these two states?
Will the USA support Israel in a war against Iran? What position will Russia, Turkey, the European Union, and the Islamic world take?
Or perhaps will Mahmoud Ahmadinejad listen to the U.S. president, come round and suspend nuclear activities?
While we ask all these and other questions, actually war has already begun.
It is not a war on the scale of the First or the Second World War, or even “Desert Storm,” or like the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. But war has already begun.
The Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin has said: “The death of a single person is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” Yes, it is “insignificant” today that rockets fall on Israeli cities. Yes, and as anti-Semitism gains in strength, there will be more “tragedies.”
Many leaders of the world’s states and the international organizations are trying to make politicians out of terrorists, carrying on negotiations with them, and even offering them financial assistance. They don’t want to admit the fact that war has already begun some time ago.
Perhaps human reason doesn’t want to recognize it, but it is a fact. Certainly, it is difficult to realize and believe that in the 21st century there is one religion, some countries, some political and spiritual leaders, and many and many millions of followers who all think the same way. Islamic totalitarianism increasingly takes root in the consciousness of people around the world.
If the Ayatollahs of Iran and President Ahmadinejad can escape punishment for their statements that Israel is the cancerous tumor of the Middle East and should be cut out, the Prime Minister of Turkey, Erdogan, is simply angel with wings. It turns out that if you don’t participate in a stoning, but just stand and watch approvingly, you are already a good person.
The Foreign Affairs Commissioner of the European Union, Catherine Ashton, thinks that the murder of children in Toulouse is comparable to the actions of an army defending Israel in Gaza. It turns out that a murderous attack and self-defense; rape and love; an arson and the cultivation of a fire for warming; the holding of a person against his will and a person serving time in prison for committing a crime are all one and the same.
All this readying of business for the statistician to which Stalin referred shows how totalitarian thinking and fear eradicate human values within us, and takes over our minds.
Islamic totalitarianism, and total fear enslave our minds. They change our nature from within. But in any form of totalitarianism, there is no place for liberty and morality.
