Mid-term elections are just around the
corner. Polls show that many Americans are unhappy with the
Republicans and are likely to vote for Democrats. Fine and dandy.
This is America where the voter is king. And when one is king, he
needs to be a wise king.
The foremost topic on the mind of the voter is the Iraq mess.
Republicans, particularly the person of George W. Bush, are blamed
for making the mess and not being able to clean it. So, the
Democrats may be the answer, some think.
The Democrats can indeed be the answer. Unfortunately, their
answer most likely will be disastrous. Faced with a ruthless enemy
bent on your destruction, you either stand and fight or cut and
run hoping that the enemy will not pursue you to your grave.
Once again it is decision time. We do well to recognize that
short-sighted people with short memories are prone to make
terrible choices, even when they have the best of intentions.
So, we want to refresh the voters’ memory to help them in making
wise decisions. The vote you cast will not simply replace one
politician with another. At this point in time, every vote has
great existential implications. Whether we like it or not, we are
truly in a war of survival with Islamofascism.
You cannot negotiate co-existence—live and let live—with
Islamofascists any more than the Clinton administration succeeded
with its compact with North Korea. Before the ink dried on the
Clinton-North Korea agreement, the North Koreans embarked on
cheating. Now, we are faced with a suicidal-genocidal adversary
with nuclear weapons headed by a megalomaniac playboy.
The present mess in Iraq is plenty bad. Perhaps mistakes were
made. Perhaps we should not have invaded the country. Perhaps we
should have kept up the terribly costly over-flights over Saddam
to keep him in his cage. Perhaps we should have taken our chances
with the French and the Russians who were ruthlessly working to
end Iraq’s embargo to enrich themselves from ill-begotten deals
with Hitlerian Saddam. Perhaps we should have ignored all reports
that Saddam had stockpiles of WMD. All this hindsight was not at
hand, unfortunately, when the decision was made.
Admittedly, Iraq is a mess. The Administration claims that there
is progress, although much killing, mostly internecine, goes on.
But, should we cut and run as many Democrats demand? The Democrats
say that we should quickly bring our men and women home and let
the Sunnis and Shiites and the rest of the Jihadists kill one
another all they want. They further appeal to the pocketbook of
the taxpayer by saying that the billions going down the Iraq
sinkhole can be spent on the sorely needed domestic projects.
Sounds good indeed, as if it were the only true and prudent thing
But the battle in Iraq is all about power.
Islamofascists want power and the region is flush with it—oil. The
factional fighting is about who is going to get control of the oil
spigot. He who controls the spigot shall dictate his terms to all
the oil addicts of the world. That’s us. Then starts the real
“negotiation” with the turbaned oil barons. Muslims’ preferred
negotiation style is very straightforward. You give, they take.
You give as much as they can extract now and you will be forced to
give the rest of whatever they want down the road. What is it that
you have to give? Whatever they demand. You want oil? You comply
and meet their terms.
Keep in mind that Islamofascists have a compact with Allah that
allows them to make and break any commitment to anyone at any
point. They share this “justifiable” deception belief with their
atheistic kin, the Communists—the end justifies the means. It is
indeed foolish for principled people to delude themselves into
thinking that the Islamofascists honor the commitments they make.
History is replete with instances where Muslims have sworn and
sealed the Quran with a compact and have turned right around and
violated their promise at terrible costs to their victims who took
them for their word.
What are some of the Islamofascists oil barons’ terms? Just a few
* The United States of America completely pack and leave the
* All kafir oil addicts pay for their fix through the nose.
* Islam to be granted all its God-given rights in kafir lands.
* The entire package of sharia stone-age rules and laws supercede
local rules and laws.
* Mosques, Islamic centers and medressehs be granted privileged
status and exempted from civil scrutiny and laws.
* Women be relegated to their Islamic place—caged in the house,
deprived of education, don the hijab, and live at the pleasure of
* Taliban-type of Islamic purity becomes the standard.
Now, is all the above just fear-mongering and Democrat-bashing at
You are free to see it that way. But, it is always more prudent to
go with the facts than fiction. Do you think the Democratic fumble
with North Korea under Clinton was an isolated instance? Well,
what about Clinton occupying himself with handling other things
instead of the Osama problem? Do you buy the story that he truly
devastated Osama by firing a few missiles into the rocks of
What about that other Democratic genius, Jimmy Carter’s handling
of the 1979 Revolution in Iran? The 1979 uprising of the Iranian
people was hardly Islamic until Carter and his mis-advisors
decided to support the mullahs, instead of going to the aid of the
secular Iranians who yearned for a democratic society.
So, here are George W. Bush and the Republicans trying to clean up
the horrific mess the Democrats left behind. The savage mullahs of
Iran are plenty evil without the bomb. With the bomb, the end is
truly at hand. The mullahs have no compunctions about killing tens
of thousands of their own people. They have set up a “Special
Court of the Clergy” to try and imprison any of their own clerics
who dare to oppose their doomsday designs. They even arrest and
torture the ordinarily untouchable ayatollahs for speaking up for
the rule of law and tolerance.
These are terribly trying times. Free people must decide their
priorities with foresight and wisdom and shy away from
shortsighted simplistic solutions. It is by far more prudent to
face the implacable Islamofascists on the march now than to cut
There is no safe place to run.
Our best hope for safety is to firmly resist Islamofascism in all
its forms. We Iranian-Americans greatly cherish freedom, perhaps a
bit more than others, because we have been first-hand witnesses to
the horrors of Islamofascism. And we keep in mind that freedom is
not free. Anyone or any party that promises otherwise is either a
fool or a charlatan.
