When listing the world’s most notorious terrorist organizations, why is it that Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram so quickly spring to mind, while Hezbollah is frequently forgotten? In this video, Tony Badran, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains how the backing of Iran has served to legitimize Hezbollah on the world stage, while simultaneously making the group all the more dangerous.
Reports indicate that French SWAT teams have stormed the kosher market.
Four hostages are dead.
Baruch Dayan Emet.
Why did the IslamoNazis take hostages in a kosher market? Were their cartoonists hanging out in the aisles on erev Shabbat?
Of course not.
The IslamoNazis were there to kill Jews. Because that’s what IslamoNazis do; it’s what makes them tick.
The massacre of the Charlie Hebdo journalists and two policemen yesterday was, ostensibly, revenge because the satiric magazine insulted Mohammed and Islam.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has blasphemy laws with which they punish those who also insult Mohammed and Islam.
Thus, the IslamoNazis of Paris and the IslamoNazis of Saudia Arabia are working off the same playbook, which, you’ll be shocked to learn is, the Koran.
In yesterday’s post yours truly pointed out the absurdity of refusing to label Islamic terrorists as, um, Islamic terrorists.
The truth is simple. Millions of Muslims are bloodthirsty savages. And millions of allegedly moderate Muslims refuse to publicly condemn their jihadist brothers.
This deadly dynamic points to the fact that wherever Islam thrives, civil society disappears. Murder, rape, plunder, sexual slavery of women, execution of homosexuals, and ethnic cleansing inevitably follow.
Funny, we never hear about moderate Christians or moderate Jews.
The media in the Arab Muslim world is, for the most part, a swamp of victimhood, conspiracy theories, Jew-hatred, blood libels, delusional intellectuals, and fanatic Islamist genocidiers.
But every once in a while a whiff of truth slips past the gate keepers. The following article by Abdulateef Al-Mulhim, a retired commodore in the Saudi Royal Navy, and published in the Arab News, Saudi Arabia, is a remarkable piece of truth-telling. Mr. Al-Mulhim shatters the basic myth of the Arab Muslim world: that Israel is the source of all Muslim troubles, the primal enemy who must be destroyed.
In fact, so articulate is the core message of this article that it would never even be published in today’s NY Times, for it is a direct repudiation of every word ever written by Thomas Friedman.
Alas, Seraphic Secret confesses that as soon as we read Mr. Al-Mulhim’s article, we understood that this honest and courageous man has painted a huge “Kill Me” sign on his back.
A few excerpts:
Many people in the Arab world are beginning to ask many questions about the past, present, and future with regard to the Arab-Israeli conflict. The hard question that no Arab national wants to ask is: What was the real cost of not recognizing Israel in 1948 and why didn’t the Arab states spend their assets on education, health care and infrastructure instead of wars? But the hardest question that no Arab national wants to hear is whether Israel is the real enemy of the Arab world and the Arab people.
