I’ve been writing a lot lately about the growing threat of Islamic terror and the infiltration of Islamists into our country. I’ve written about “The Project,” twice – the Muslim Brotherhood’s long term grand plan of “Civilization Jihad” in the U.S. I’ve reported on the “Clock Boy” of Irving Texas, his father and their odd behavior, as well as the radical groups and leaders they choose to align with. I’ve even written about how even their requirement of halal products is funding terror. As a reader so aptly pointed out: “Single minded little buggers, aren’t they? Apparently pretty much anything they do is to advance their death cult…”
And the reader is right. Everything these radicals do is at least loosely according to the plan for Muslim dominance of this country and the entire western world.
Yet still, this slow advance has kept us relatively safe on American soil. But imagine what life would be like if here in America we had to contend with what Israel has been and is presently experiencing. Imagine walking down the streets of any city or town in the U.S. and someone, completely unprovoked, comes up behind you and attacks – savagely stabbing you. Imagine this has occurred not once or twice, but 10 or more times in short order – and the perpetrators all had one thing in common – either the same race, or religion, etc.
Now add to that – imagine more groups of the same ilk were hold up in Mexico or Canada, just indiscriminately launching missiles, rockets and mortars into our cities and towns along the border. What do you think we might do? How would we react to this constant assault?
We might look to our government and our military to protect us. We would probably further arm ourselves. We might even lash out at our police and officials for not doing enough to protect us. Its one thing to take it upon yourself to defend your family or your home against attackers or invaders – but arming yourself will do little against a mortar barrage.
Suffice it to say, Americans would be pissed. We would demand action. Now imagine some foreign dignitary thought it necessary to fly into Washington and lecture our president and elected officials on the evils of America – that we just need to be more tolerant and accepting of the murderers – maybe give parts of our country to them and they’ll stop killing us. Oh, I don’t mean this president. He would and has agreed with such dignitaries. I mean a president who actually likes America.
Well, I know exactly what we would all say. There would a deafening collective “Screw Off” to those who wish to advise and dictate to us. We would never accept anyone telling us we were the bad guys.
But of course this is the evil Satan nation of Israel – and everything they do is wrong and purposely oppressive of the poor Palestinians – at least in the eyes of the international leftist community.
Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas can incite hatred of and violence toward Israel, and is honored with a flag raising at the United Nations. He can complain that after all this time his people still have no home. Of course, it’s his fault, as he and others have rejected every ill-conceived (in my opinion) olive branch offered by the Israelis.
But none of this matters, and he knows it. He has the entire liberal western world standing with him – steadfast against Netanyahu and Israel.
Yet due to these recent vicious and unsolicited attacks on Israeli citizens, support for the poor homelandless Palestinians may be wavering a bit. So in fly the liberal apologist leaders to the rescue. Even as Palestinian religious leaders are calling for these attacks, U.N. head weenie, Ban Ki-moon (doggie) flies to Jerusalem to call for end to the violence. And instead of blaming the murderous Palestinians and those who incite them, John Kerry blames Israel.
See, the worldwide left has constructed this myth of peaceful Palestinian people just searching for a homeland and the evil tyrannical Israeli state holding them down. It has worked successfully for decades. Even rocket and mortar attacks haven’t moved people to the Israeli’s side. Sure we see the aftermath on video and in photographs, but that’s just aftermath, and bombings, albeit horrific, are not personal like a one on one killing.
Now we have actual footage of stabbing attacks on video. These are personal and vicious and seemingly random. It’s the definition of terror and it may cause some to turn against the Palestinians in favor of Israel. The left can not tolerate this. Their narrative has always been Jews bad – Arabs good – and these attacks threaten to disrupt their decade’s old narrative.
This, in my opinion, is why world leaders are flying to Israel and gathering at the U.N. – scrambling about in an attempt to head off further violence against Israelis and preserve their bogus narrative.
