Enough Dead Jews: What the West Taught the Middle East

Here's the one thing the "west" (i.e. liberal democratic society) has taught the middle east...and other assorted thugs. We taught them that you gotta at least pretend to do crazy ass things. That doesn't mean that they use reason, just the cloak of reasoning makes thuggish behavior easier to sell.

That's why Castro and saddam got "re-elected" with 99% of the vote and 99% of the turnout. And if you review the US news items reporting these "elections" they were done so without much grain of salt. If you like literature, check out the first (maybe second) scene, Act 1 of Henry V (A fine play that parrellels GWB), Prince Hal's (GWB to some) lawyer goes through a long and meandering and ultimately funny exposition on how it's totally acceptable for England to invade France.

And so we come to the Tehran Holocaust investigation conference.

The Iranian government is not doing it to be mean. They are doing it to provide a reason for an action. The action? The Nuking Israel.

The only reason for the WW2 victors to support the establishment of an Israeli state was the Holocaust, if the Holocast didn't happen, their would be no need for Israel. If the Holocaust didn't happen, then the establishment of Israel is a farce. It would have no right or reason to exist.

And don't write the Conference off as a bunch of nuts. Tehran is a modern city filled with academics. Smart people can want crazy things. To quote marge simpson 'people do all kinds of crazy things - like eat at Hardees."

Our elites have pretty much bought into Israel being illigitimate. A former US presdient has a book called 'Palestine: Peace not apartheid'. No mention of Israel there? There already is a Palastinian state: Jordan. On the other side of the spectrum, a former secretary of state, James Baker (remember when people said he was in the pocket of the Saudis? But now he's ok), helped author that silly Iraqi Study Group Report. Here's Mark Steyn on the ISG's call for a multi-national support group that's suppose to help us out of Iraq:
Oh, but lest you think there are no minimum admission criteria to James Baker's "Support Group," relax, it's a very restricted membership: Arabs, Persians, Chinese commies, French obstructionists, Russian assassination squads. But no Jews. Even though Israel is the only country to be required to make specific concessions -- return the Golan Heights, etc. Indeed, insofar as this document has any novelty value, it's in the Frankenstein-meets-the-Wolfman sense of a boffo convergence of hit franchises: a Vietnam bug-out, but with the Jews as the designated fall guys. Wow. That's what Hollywood would call "high concept."
So even our own elites are working to delegitimize Israel's existance?

So the arab world has a "rational" reason to deny Israel's existence, the "west" is being tee'd up to believe the same thing - or at least that Israel is an irritation.

I'm thinking we're looking at a 21st Century with more another - far greater - Holocaust. Are we going to have to number them?

And when Israel is gone, will the Arab world become happy and rational and peaceful? Or will is want the return of Al-Andalus next?

They have their reasons. They have their justifications. They have the technology.


Stay You.
