The Truth About the Wave of Anti-American Demonstrations

These waves of demonstrations are relatively small ways of advancing the ideological readiness of the masses to accept the radical Islamist groups’ program.

Qatar plays both sides, as does Pakistan. Syria’s dictatorship today portrays itself as a bulwark against Islamism when it was promoting revolutionary Islamism up to the moment of the civil war. Iran, Gaza, Egypt, Turkey, and Lebanon are all controlled by Islamists of various varieties.

Then there are the courageous but always neglected real moderates in places like Tunisia, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, and Iran, people for whom the West does pretty much nothing.

Generally speaking, Western policies are the exact opposite of what they should be. There is no sign of change in that regard.

If the Western elite doesn’t get any of this and shows over many years incapability in doing so, it is necessary to educate and build a new elite. If the fashionable Middle East “experts” speak nonsense you better find someone else to listen to. If politicians don’t get it, some who do comprehend what’s going on must be elected. If the mass media keeps missing the point there must be an alternative mass media that can explain the truth to people.

This is not a theological dispute. This is not a therapy session. This is not a contest to say the right things so you get invited to a Washington dinner party. It is a political struggle for power in which the losers end up dead or fleeing into exile or having their diplomats shot dead.

  1. Reba Mick says:

    –The causes of these demonstrations are not some act of Islamophobia but the agitation of revolutionary Islamist groups that work systematically every day to build anti-Americanism, hatred of the West, and the loathing of Jews and Christians.

  2. Ruth Hirt says:

    Coupled with barbaric complex leanings. having the readiness to challenge and fight unsubscribing world power to its aherence, Islam shall never cease to destabilize any power unyielding to its whims, any power unaligned to its political sectarian goals. The US’ compromising stance, caving-in to Islam’s goadings, emboldened their ranks…. This is a faith which has no due regard to neither moral nor spiritual responsibility.
