Jihad is a Muslim Crusade: Hamas and Hezbollah are its Templars and Hospitallers

It is a sad fact of today that Islamic Extremists are conducting a vicious campaign of violence against all they consider to be “infidels” and “unbelievers.”

Ironically, whenever I bring up this simple fact, the apologists of Islamic Extremism try to use ancient history of past Christian Extremism during Midle Ages and Crusades as an excuse for what Islamic Extremists do today. So, in essence, Muslims Extremists and their supporters feel that they have a right to go forward with a Muslim Crusade against West in 21st Century, just because Western Christians embarked on a Crusade against Muslims in 12th Century. I do not dispute obvious facts of unimaginable cruelty by Christian Crusaders in Middle East in 12th Century, but it is false to assume that those crimes can be an excuse for barbarism displayed by Islamic Extremists today. Today, Christianity is nothing like violent Crusaders of 12th Century. Today, it is Jihadist Islam that is a monstrous aggressor, striving to destroy and kill all those who dare to differ from it in beliefs.

The analogy is complete – even with modern analogy for Knights Templar – the Taliban, Hezbollah and Hamas! Think about this: all of these are military religious organization, standing armies with goal of killing all who do not believe in Allah. How is that different from Templars or Knights Hospitallers, who were the armies of Jesus? Templars and Hospitallers participated in politics, waged war and pursued goal of genocide of Muslim religion – sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Replace Jesus with Mohammed, and the analogy is complete.

Jihad is a modern-day Muslim Crusade, and groups like Hezbollah and Hamas are its Templars and Hospitallers.

McCain against USA

Is McCain trying to destroy USA?

Let me see the list:

1. McCain-Feingold – the most blatant attack for political freedom of speech. The act places ludicrous limitations on how candidates for political office can be criticised in an election race. If he insane? I do not know! Does he try to silence freedom of speech? YES!

2. McCain-Kennedy – his creating this piece of liberal vomit legislation was like a slap in my face. I am a legal immigrant, I became a US citizen three years ago. I never have thought that a Republican would be so hare-brained where it comes to respecting the immigration laws and border security of this nation. Today he acts as if immigration laws do not count. Perhaps, tomorrow he will say Fifth Amendment does not count too?

Illegal immigrants do not pay taxes, steal IDs and Social Security numbers, violate our sovereign right to secure borders, violate immigration laws. Many of the illegals come back and repeat same offences even if deported, exacerbating insult to American laws and sovereignty. If you want to come to USA, please do so – but respect our laws and our borders, damn it! Is it too much to ask for you to come respect our laws and ask for a permission to enter our country? I am an immigrant, and if I did it, so can you.

3. McCain’s libel against Romney – to suggest that private discussion between President of USA and Prime Minister of Iraq about strategy and timetables amounts to supporting a public date for withdrawal is stupid! Has McCain lost his mind demanding that US President not even think about possibility that US troops might be needed elsewhere? Isn’t that the very definition of strategy – discussing ALL possible scenarios, including withdrawal?

4. McCain says leadership is not management – any good manager, by definition is a good leader. His assertion is just moronic. So, McCain wants to be just a “leader” but not a “manager”? Hmm, German word for leader is Furer, so, I guess, McCain wants to be the Furer of America. What about actually doing some work – like planning a war, managing (yes, managing) economy? He spent all his political life in Washington, what does he know about management of economy or management or bureaucracy? Nothing! He is a professional “talker”, whose only claim to fame is crappy McCain-Feingold and McCain-Kennedy bills. He supported surge? Good for him, but that does not excuse his horrific ignorance of other issues, just like economy and immigration.

McCain was a great hero and a great soldier. But as a politician, he consistently takes position that I cannot characterize any other way as being against interests of USA. He is a deeply misguided man who may cause America a huge deal of harm if elected.

Pre-emptive war is a necessary evil in the modern world.

In the past, the wars were fought exclusively by nations. If a nation wanted to go to war, it had to equip and train large number of men, which made any sudden attack on an alert enemy impossible. Weaponry available just hundred years ago was limited by small arms, artillery, and aircraft, which necessitated prolonged war with any decently prepared adversary.

Today, the world is awash with countries obtaining nuclear weapons. The nuke, the miracle weapon of ultimate destruction, which was available exclusively to superpowers only 30 years ago, today is owned by countries like North Korea, India, and Pakistan. Nuclear weapons programs have been discovered and documented in countries like Lybia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

The reality of today is that any entity — terrorist group or nation of ANY size — that has access to nuclear weapons and capability to place them on USA territory, can realistically defeat USA, if it succeeds to do so. And the enemy does not have to be a nation at all — look at Hezbollah versus Israel, Al-Qaeda versus USA! Imagine a hypothetical scenario: a terrorist organization smuggles nukes accross US-Mexico border into USA, and simultaneously detonates the nuclear bombs in LA, Atlanta, NYC, Dallas, Miami, and Chicago. If, in fact such a horrific atrocity would take place without warning, the USA, for all practical purposes, would be done – majority of people would be killed, and those left alive would hardly be able to re-establish our country as we know it.

This is why, it is a sad but crucial necessity to keep pre-emptive war as a viable option when dealing with nations/entities that are unresponsive to other means of negotiations and present clear danger to USA.

Within this framework, Iraq war is a justifiable one. President Bush attempted for 6 months to resolve the Iraqi WMD crisis in UN security council to no avail. Iraqis and the Europeans flatly refused to provide any guarantees that Iraq did in fact destroy its WMD, and that no terrorist group will ever take possession of stockpiles of nerve gas that Saddam used against Kurds. After six months of fruitless negotiations, just having been brutally attacked on 911, our country had no other option that to pre-emptively attack Iraq in order to be sure it will not be a threat to USA any more.

What would YOU choose: waterboarding for a day or ten years in prison?

The “waterboarding is torture” argument is silly. I think any guy who is sane would rather be waterboarded for a day rather than spend a decade in prison. Hell, I would choose to be waterboarded for TWO days rather than taking a shower with twenty 250-pound convicts even once.

So, does that mean that prison sentences are MORE of a torture that waterboarding?

No, of course not.

So what is torture? Hammer to the toes and fingers, powerdrill to the kneecaps and the skull, screwdriver to gauge out the eyes – just a few of things, which I think, legitimately are torture. They all share same characteristic — permanent and horrific damage to the human body. NOT discomfort – PERMANENT DAMAGE!

I guess, to some people any discomfort experienced by anybody while in custody must be torture. Well, those people are very idealistic, to the point of being crudely ignorant.

How to whitewash a religious mass-murder: just say what rapists say

Today, President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose hands are covered in blood of our GIs, spoke at Columbia University, in NYC. I already can hear “useful morons” blabber about “misunderstanding” between extremist part of Mulsim world, represented by Ahmadinejad, and US, as the root cause of world-wide warfare we see.

There is no such thing. To say that 9/11 (or other attacks against non-Muslims) is due to misunderstanding reminds me of a common line rapists use: “she wanted it, I misunderstood her!”

Nothing that USA could have ever done can justify or excuse in any way the horrific, barbaric atrocity of 911. To say that we were attacked because we deserved it, is as disgusting as to say that rapists only rape women who deserve it by dressing provocatively.

There can be no misunderstanding when 19 men kill 3,000 innocent human beings just because these innocents are Americans. It is just plain fascism. We, Americans, are unclean, Jew- and Gay-loving, women-liberating, and non-Muslim. According to Ahmadinejad, terrorists he supports, and people who think like him, it makes us guilty in eyes of G-d and Muslims must kill us if they can. It is that simple.

By the way, check out Muslims Against Sharia. On the first glance it looks legit, promising and full of hope.

Imagine there is no Israeli Army

Imagine that there is no Israeli Army, Air Force or Navy. What would Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran do?

Would they stay out of Israeli cities, leaving civillians unharmed? Or, would they seize opportunity to attack, killing defenseless women, children, and elderly? The anwer is clear. They would attack, and they would enjoy it. They would kill every person they would see in streets – the towns of Israel would be like lakes of blood. The only reason why Islamic terrorists have not yet completed final “solution” of the “Jewish question” is because they still cannot do it……yet.

The scary thing, when Iran gets nukes, they just might think that is the now can.

By the same token , neither Hamas nor Hezbollah have regular army, Air Force or Navy. Israel has nukes. If Israelis would really want to kill every Muslim in vicinity, they could do so easily. If Israel would unleash its military without regard for human life, they would easily could mount a genocide of unimaginable scale. Yet, they do not do it. They always fight only when it is absolutely necessary to do so for self-defense, and exercise restraint even under daily rain of Kassam rockets from Gaza.

LET ME BE CLEAR: Muslims, Jews, Russians, Germans, Democrats and Republicans – we are all people, we all have faults and virtues. But to say that it is not Muslims who today bear responsibility for hatred in Middle East towards Christians, Jews, and West, is to same as saying that Germans do not bear responsibility for WW2 and Holocaust.

Why We Fight.

As nicely said by Newt Gingrich in interview to FOX News:

What I would say to any Democrat who wants America to leave is quite simple. Millions of Iraqis have sided with the United States. They are known in their neighborhoods. They are known in their cities. If we abandon them, they are going to be massacred.How can you, in good conscience, walk away from these decent people and leave them behind to a fate which we’ve seen, for example, in Afghanistan, where the Taliban recently was machine-gunning girls as they walked to school because the Taliban is determined to stop women from getting educated?

We are faced with evil opponents. Those opponents need to be defeated. And if General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker come back in September and say, “We actually can win this thing,” I want to understand the rationale that says, “No, we don’t want to let America win. Let’s legislate defeat for the United States.”
