A spate of columns has erupted trashing the ever-trashable one-term failed President Jimmy Carter, the man whose legacy consists of a be-sweatered befuddlement on dealing with a world progressing beyond his ability to think, a Misery Index of 16, and the global ascendancy of Islamist terror.
Even the French are documenting Jimmy’s decline and delinquency.
Joining these columns, prompted by the increasingly moronic behavior of Mr. Carter hugging and kissing Hamas and other anti-Israeli, anti-Western and anti-American terrorists using this senile old man as the tool he is, are columns explaining to the world why it is that Israel cannot survive.
Been there, heard that. Wrong again.
Tangentially it always is interesting to listen to the supporters of the United Nations, those insistent on its powers and requiring the stamp of its approval approval, at the same time become the leading anti-Israeli bloviators on the planet on why Israel ought not exist.
Cool, huh? A country created by their beloved UN, being trashed by those who hold that ludicrous body in high regard.
Only in an America ill-educated by decades of our least intelligent people passing through Schools of “Education” joining the AFT and destroying decent education for all our children, for our future.
Let’s look at this conclusion again – that Israel cannot survive.
Of course the argument that it can be Jewish and survive, or be democratic and not survive, is reasonable, except when one understands how states come into being and survive.
And the Left hates to have this discussion. Since it likely is the only future for Israel, the Left will do all it can to prevent the discussion either from occurring or concluding.
The discussion? Conquest.
In the entire history of the known universe, only one state has been borne other than as a result of conquest: Israel. People as ignorant and vain as Carter can yammer all they want about “Peace Processes.” Of course, the Middle East would be peaceful now if Israel had defended herself as she ought to have decades ago.
Had the United States lost a similar percentage of its citizens to terror and rocket attacks from across a border, America would have reacted far more strongly than Israel has, and Americans wouldn’t be complaining; they’d be demanding it.
Not born from conquest, conquest is the only way for Israel to survive. “Peace processes,” whatever they are never have produced peace. Leftists can talk all they want that, “War is not the answer,” but educated people understand that only war has proven the answer to truly intractable problems throughout history. Slavery, Genocide, Tyranny.
Of course, if you look at the history of the Left, they don’t mind any of those, which is why, of course, they are against war for any and all reasons.
Sorry if you don’t like or understand that. Refer to the paragraph above re: unionized teachers.
Had Israel been born of conquest, few would exist to call into question her right to exist, let alone do anything about it, just as few American Indians exist to call into question America’s conquest of the continent now called North America and few if any primitive, tribal peoples call modern countries into question, simply because those people were destroyed by conquest and the advance of civilizations better both qualitatively and quantitatively.
And now, of course, we have Western Civilization, and the rights and liberties, to say nothing of the wealth and medical and educational (well, until the unions took over) that never have – and never will – exist outside our advanced civilization.
Leftists hate this. They insist on leaving in-place Stone Age tribes, not touching them with advances in technology. These leftists believe these people are curiosities, somehow sub-human beings that ought not be aware of, let alone take advantage of advances in nutrition, health care, shelter, energy.
I’ll just bet every newly-discovered South American or New Guinean tribe mother doesn’t mind her babies dying of diseases cured centuries ago in the West so that she and her tribe can, in the eyes of our elites remain “pure,” whatever that is.
But Israel, not having been born of conquest, soon will require conquest to survive.
And there is nothing wrong with that – not historically, not morally.
Regardless of the preferences of those who whine about a single bully on their block but disallow Israel to defend herself against entire countries that are existential bullies.
Those who have advanced their society, who have educated their children, who have developed economies and education and agriculture are far better than those who have built billion-dollar ski slopes in the desert yet left their poor in ever-deepening poverty, who have left their future generations to Islamist “prophets” who preach nothing but blood, death and tears.
In choosing a way forward the civilized world must come to grips with the fact that those who kill as a way of life must be pushed aside for those who care for their people, their economies, their learning, their medical care, their future.
And if that means Israel conquering the surrounding countries – at least to the point of killing as many tribal people as required for Israelis to live in peace, so be it. Those who object prove only their un-seriousness and lack of historical understanding.
Islamism is a tyranny every bit as – or more – objectionable as Nazism in the 1930s. The UN and Europe are looking away now every bit as much as they did in the 1930s. We all have been here before. Had Hitler been destroyed in 1934 or ‘36 or ‘38, hundreds of millions of lives would have been saved.
Islamists can be destroyed now at a far lower cost than in several years. But one certain fact exists – they will have to be destroyed.
Israel might as well get on with it – they have a logical, necessary, morally defensible, existential reason to destroy those trying to destroy them.
Educated people will thank them.
Why anyone pays any attention at all to ill-educated, ignorant people – the Left in America who demand we become like the failing demi-continent of Europe – is amazing.
Every international policy advocated by the Left for 80 years has been wrong.
It is time to cease paying any attention at all to an entire party that has no children, who has brought Europe – the cradle of rights and liberties – to extinction, and is trying to do the same to America.
It is time Israel recognized its existential battle and did something about it.
It is time Americans with an investment in the future understood that only conquest works, and that either the West can conquer Islam – or Islam will conquer the West.
There is no middle ground. Look around.
