Poverty doesn't cause terrorism. Islam causes terrorism.
Interesting article. Coming back to read the whole thing later when I have time.
Yep, bump for this evening's reading. :-)
Looks good, will read later
This guy tells it like it is, and it is something se all need to hear!
The only thing the Arabs have created for themselves in the past 50 years is a terrorist infrastructure that uses a bogus "palistinian refugee crisis" to feed the hate that puts the "islamic charity" donations in the pockets of the terrorist organizers. The last thing they'll allow is is peace.
Furthermore, Islam, with its toxic concepts of post death X rated sex parties, redemtion through Jihad, its ultra violent Profet, etc is uniquely suited to brew generations of terrorists.
Thanks, he gets it!!
Now that Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya are out, two and a half terrorist states remain: Iran, Syria and Lebanon, the latter being a Syrian colony. Perhaps Sudan should be added to the list.
First, he's leaving out a critical player, Pakistan. If the fundies take over there, they already have the nukes. Leaving Pakistan with its huge and largely radicalized population out of the discussion is, a mistake. Whether Musharraf is a friend or not, it is perilous to leave them off the list when contemplating the strategic resources necessary to win.
Second, the US still has to contend with China AND Chinese sponsored fronts around the world. As he already offered, some forms of Islamic terror have communist affiliation. America must deal with terrorism with the realization that its use to weaken us before a fatal blow may in fact be an early feint in a much more dangerous conflict. In my judgment, his focus exclusively upon Islamic terror, is an Israeli-centric perspective that may be critically short-sighted.
In order to win the war it is also necessary to dry the financial resources of the terror conglomerate. It is pointless to try to understand the subtle differences between the Sunni terror of Al Qaida and Hamas and the Shiite terror of Hezbollah, Sadr and other Iranian inspired enterprises. When it serves their business needs, all of them collaborate beautifully.
Finally, he never discusses HOW to cut off the money. by developing alternative energy resources. Just as Reagan critically wounded the Soviet Union by decontrolling oil prices in the US to increase domestic exploration, so we must develop all our resources, coal, nuclear, biomass, and petrochemical, to eliminate the source of funding of Arab terror as well as to strengthen the economy that funds our defense in the long run. The key there is our own regulatory straitjacket, particularly environmental law.
ONLY after we bring the Islamic world to its economic knees will the funding for the madrassas dry up.
Excellent analysis by Mr. Harari.
C4Bush Library BUMP!
Bump and read later.
