The Bully Is Threatening

        I am often amazed by the reaction of world governments to the bullying tactics of the Muslim world. I remember as a kid having to decide whether to fight the bully, run away, or give him what he wanted when I could not run away. Most children eventually learned that if you stand up to a bully he usually backed down, but if you give in he will gain courage and continue to harass you.

 

         The world is facing a bully and has been giving in too often. The Muslim forces are poised to threaten much of the “infidel” world. When they strike or threaten any country or group, the reaction is appeasement and fear. How is it possible that the often-uneducated Muslim fanatics can strike such fear in the hearts of the Western world?

 

         The Twin Towers victory for Muslim fanatics has infused almost every Muslim with joy, hope and new courage. The Muslim has learned that with persistence, he can conquer the Judeo-Christian world – and then take care of all of the other infidels. The Arabs saw the amazing reaction of England and the United States to their terror. Bombs were NOT dropped on the supporters of terror – Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran or Iraq – but rather on insignificant Afghanistan. What a joke!

 

         The terrorists noted the punishment the West gave to its own citizens rather than to the Muslims. Airline security forces were forbidden to profile Arab-looking travelers. Instead, they panicked and chose little old ladies and government officers to search and harass instead of the potential Muslim terrorists. The reading material, liquids and nail files of its own citizens were confiscated, as the Muslims laughed at the stupidity of the West.

 

         For a very short while, we thought that the pope had the moral and spiritual strength to stand up and speak out against the Muslim threat to Christianity and to the rest of the world. How saddened and amazed we were at how frightened the papal reaction was to the violent Muslim protests. It was almost as if we were back in the 1940′s when the church feared to condemn the Nazi murder machine. Appeasement and neutrality were the guiding principles rather than justice, morality or goodness.

 

         The world now has more to fear, as the North Koreans build their bomb and distribute their knowledge to the Muslim world. Iran will soon have its bombs, yet the world remains impotent to take action, and cries for political action rather than military action are heard around the world. We have to be concerned about their feelings and not that they plan to murder us.

 

         Muslim troops from Russia are moving into Lebanon – and they will be the guardians of peace. Russia is sending supplies to another friend of peace, Syria. Fear has paralyzed the West, and economic and political advantage has blinded the East.

 

         We continue to wonder why the Western and Eastern worlds do not recognize the Muslim threat. More and more Muslims are emigrating to Europe and to the U.S. They are working to Islamicize Europe and the U.S. from within, and they do not hide their purpose. Do Russia, China, India and even Japan really believe that they will not be next? The pope and the Christian world have already capitulated to the Muslim threat. Look at the conditions of the Christians in Bethlehem and Jerusalem! The Christians are hiding their religion or leaving in droves and allowing the Muslims to take control. Will certain states in the U.S. fall to the same pressure and become Islamic? The Muslims have time and patience on their side, and will grow and gain strength, thanks in part to their high birth rate. Israel is not the only victim. It is, however, the only one that is aware of the danger. Will Asia continue to support Arab terror until the terror is directed against them?

 

         Muslims are not afraid to openly express their goal: “To convert the entire world to Islam.” Arabs everywhere, including in the U.S., applaud every terror victory by Islamic murderers. And why not?

 

         Liberals keep thinking that the Muslims are like Westerners and have similar values. They keep ignoring the fact that Westerners do not commit suicide murders or sacrifice their children or young adults as murdering bombers. Westerners do not consider murderers to be martyrs or consider repression of dissent and excessive reaction to minor insults as normal. Arabs do have these philosophies, and Arab mothers celebrate the death of their martyred children with happiness and the distribution of candy.

 

         Western society has become afraid; Islam is winning. When will the world wake up to the threat?

It really is time for painful sacrifices for peace. No one wants his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to suffer the pangs of war and strife. It is time to end the strife and make peace in the Middle East.

Israel is a country that understands security concerns. Many civil rights have been sacrificed in the name of security and Israelis are used to being checked every time they enter a shopping center, a large store or any public building. Americans recently learned that they, too, are subject to many checks on their most private activities.

The Israeli Parliament is usually controlled by a coalition of different political parties because no one party receives enough votes to have a majority. Unlike in the U.S., where there are two major political parties and one of the two political parties commands a majority of the seats in the Senate and/or in the House, in Israel the government is composed of many, many small political parties, each pushing its own agenda.
