Jaws of Defeat

By David Horowitz

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The United States and Israel and every sentient being in the path of the Islamist crusade are teetering on the brink of a massive defeat in Lebanon and thus in the war on terror. The incident in Qana — inevitable when a terrorist army uses its own citizens as human shields — may provide the occasion for the surrender, but even if it doesn't a surrender is being prepared by the now predictable responses of the West to attacks from this fanatic, calculating and cynical an enemy. Qana, be it noted was the source of 150 missile attacks on Israeli civilians, and the population of Qana was warned to leave but chose to stay alongside the terrorists. Like most of Lebanon, the population of Qana is on the side of the aggressors, and apparently like most Muslims in this part of the world, death for them is a badge of martyrdom and honor, and a noble pathway to heaven. They are willing instruments of the Islamist jihad.


Lest it be forgotten, this is a war that began more than thirty years ago with the triumph of the Ayatollahs in Iran in 1979. That revolution established the first radical Islamic state, its war cry "Death to America" and its goal the establishment of a global Islamic empire. Nearly thirty years later, Iran is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons and its imperial war is being waged on Iran's Lebanese frontier by its Hezbollah proxy. One month into the fighting which began with the attacks on Israel, the scenario for the West's defeat in this phase of the war is quite obvious and quite simple.


The appeasers of Islamo-fascism who have been calling for a cease fire and bewailing "civilian casualties" in Lebanon and Gaza will succeed. Hezbollah will agree to turn over its arms to the pro-Hezbollah Lebanese army. The pro-Hezbollah UN will establish a security zone on Lebanon's southern border to keep the area clear of non-government militias (of which Hezbollah is the only one). The credulous in the Western camp will greet this as a victory for the peacemakers. But exactly the opposite will be the case.


According to a recent poll in Lebanon eighty percent of the Lebanese Arabs support Hezbollah. In other words, just as Hamas (created by the same Muslim Brotherhood as spawned al-Qaeda) is now the Palestinian government, so Hezbollah will emerge as the government of Lebanon. The Lebanese army will become the new Hezbollah "militia," with 75,000 soldiers added to its terrorist ranks. Only this won't be a militia. It will be the terrorist army of a sovereign power enjoying the right to openly negotiate its arms deals with Syria and Iran. The next battle with Iran, in other words, will be World War III.


In fact, the next battleground in the spread of Shi'ia fascism is already in progress and aflame. It is Iraq, where Iran's Shi'ia armies are already in the field under the command of the sheik of Sadr City, the America-hating cleric Moqtadar al-Sadr. Al-Sadr, it should be noted, is alive and in the field because the appeasers in this country, beginning with the Democratic Party but extending into the Bush State Department, stymied the first battle of Fallujah when al-Sadr was trapped and could have been killed and his militia destroyed. The Bush Administration had to delay the attack until after Kerry's defeat in the November 2004 elections in order to avoid the political complications that would have attended the battle in the midst of an election campaign. This allowed al-Sadr to escape the trap, enter the Iraqi parliament, mobilize his forces and lead the Shi'ia camp in Iraq's civil war.


The first battle of Fallujah is only one of many defeats inflicted by the appeasers and abettors of Islamic imperialism in the West. Within the western camp, aid to the enemy has taken many forms, beginning with the reckless attacks on the commander-in-chief of America's forces as a liar and murderer, while identifying his decision to fight the terrorists as the source of their terror. Are there terrorists in Iraq? They are only there because Bush created them. Or so say his critics. Is Hezbollah a Nazi army? That's because the Jews "occupied" Palestinian lands - which is two lies in one. All Israeli "occupation" is the product of four aggressive Arab wars against Israel. When Israel withdraws - as in Lebanon - it is attacked. The source of the terror in Lebanon as in Iraq is to be found in the Koran and in the despotisms of the Arab Middle East. This is obvious, but the appeasement camp cannot face the reality that its enemy is implacable and its hatred is not caused by anything its targets - Jews, Christians and other infidels — have done.


The division of America is now the greatest threat to our ability to prevail in the war on terror - and the left knows this and is encouraged by it. In fact, America is not divided enough for the American left which is now in full purge mode in Connecticut, where it is attempting to bring down the one statesman in the Democratic Party who might re-unite his country in the face of its enemies.


In the midst of these wars with a genocidal enemy, those who clamor for cease-fires before the enemy is defeated, who call for withdrawals that would leave sovereign states in the hands of an implacable foe, who decry the civilian casualties caused by the only armies who do not target civilians, who exploit the Abu Ghraibs on our side and not theirs, whose hysterical fear of the reality we face takes the form of pathological denial which causes them to project the enemy's rabid hatred for us onto our own commander-in-chief - those blame America firsters will have a lot to answer for before this conflict is over.
