“It’s a real massacre in every sense of the word,” said a resident in Khaldiya, who gave his name as Abu Jihad. “I saw bodies of women and children lying on roads beheaded. It’s horrible and inhuman. It was a long night helping people get to hospitals.”…
“The army has weapons, and the people have weapons,” one opposition activist said on condition of anonymity, recounting Saturday’s bloodshed. “Syria is finished for me. It is a civil war, and nothing will save us anymore.”THE INTERNECINE VIOLENCE IS NOT ENDING - NOT IN SYRIA, AND IT'S BARELY PAUSING IN EGYPT AND IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.
- INTERNECINE VIOLENCE WITHIN THE ARAB WORLD AND WITHIN THE MUSLIM WORLD HAS KILLED 1000x AS MANY ARABS AND MUSLIMS AS ISRAELIS.
- MORE THAN WERE KILLED BY US FORCES WHO ATTEMPTED TO LIBERATE ARABS AND MUSLIMS FROM TYRANNY.
- THIS GENOCIDAL RAMPAGE IS NOT NEW TO ISLAM; THE RECENT UPTICK IN THE LAST 2 DECADE IS A RETURN TO ISLAMIC ROOTS.
- BUT ARAB DEMOCRACY AND ISLAMIC PLURALISM MIGHT, IN A FEW DECADES (IF IT CAN ONLY MANAGE TO SURVIVE),
- PROVIDE THE ROOM FOR YOUNG MUSLIMS TO SEE AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT ISLAM ITSELF IS ANTITHETICAL TO DEMOCRACY,
- AND THEN THEY MIGHT - IN INCREASING NUMBERS - CHOOSE MODERNITY AND LEAVE ISLAM.
- LEFT ON IT'S OWN, ISLAMISM AND ISLAMO-FASCISM WILL INEVITABLY EVENTUALLY COLLAPSE IN A RUIN OF IGNORANCE AND POVERTY.
- BUT THAT WOULD REQUIRE THAT THE WEST COMPLETELY CUT-OFF/ISOLATE/SHUN ISLAMO-FASCIST NATIONS - INCLUDING A BOYCOTT OF THEIR NATURAL RESOURCES. AND YES: THIS WOULD MEAN BOYCOTTING SAUDI AND GULF OIL. MAYBE NIGERIA OIL, TOO - THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING...
- THE WEST CAN'T DO THIS UNTIL WE FIND REPLACEMENTS FOR THOSE ENERGY SOURCES AND BRING THEM ON-LINE.
- DOING SO WILL MAKE US SAFER, AND IS THE BEST HOPE FOR THE 1,000,000,000 PEOPLE ENSLAVED BY ISLAM.
NOT JUST FOR OUR SAFETY, AND ISRAEL'S - BUT FOR SYRIANS AND IRAQIS AND IRANIANS AND EGYPTIANS WHO LONG TO BE FREE.
THEY ARE A DISTINCT MINORITY NOW, OUTNUMBERED BY SALAFISTS AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, BUT IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SO.
THEY NEED ALLIES IN THE WEST - WHO WILL DO MORE THAN STAND BY AS MOST HAVE DONE - AND MUCH MORE THAN OBAMA AND THE LEFT, WHO HAVE ACTUALLY AIDED THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.
IT'S NOW.... OR NEVER...
