.....that we have named the enemy, named what the war is all about.
It's not a "war on terror", its a war against islamic fascism.
As a Jew saved by Grace, as a nine year old in 1969, I was shown, in temple, a 27 minute French documentary called "Night and Fog" about the genocide against our people by the german fascists, the nazi's. As a 9 year old, this was a diamond piercing my brain, it was the day my childhood ended.
As a 41 year old on 11 Sep 2001, I sat watching CNN, and another diamond pierced my brain, I saw the face of islamic fascism, and remember thinking three words to myself: "Tehran is Berlin". Back in 2001, on that day, I knew who the enemy is, and I can tell you that Osama bin Laden is but a tool, just as Hiz'abouallah is but a tool, of the fascistic islamic clerics who lead the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Their dream is of a fundamentalistic islamic conglomerate of nations extending thruout the Middle East, from Egypt to Pakistan to Indonesia. Since this region controls the resource that dynamic capitalism runs on, petroleum, they believe that they can control the world, once they control the region, THRU religion, a religion based in the belief of "jihad bis saif" (which means 'struggle with the sword')in the name of allah, who's fighters are of the mindset that to be a martyr in the cause of allah is the highest attribute to aim for.
The german fascist mindset was based on the humanistic mindest of the "aryan superman". The islamic fascist mindset is based on the the belief that allah will give them victory thru the sacrifice of the "Istish-haad", which means heroic martyrdom, others use the term "shahid".
Whatever the words, it's fascism, islamo-fascism plain and simple.
And like Pearl Harbor, on 9/11, these islamic fascists scored a tactical victory, and set the wheels in motion for their strategic defeat.
Believe me when I tell you, both the Israeli Defense Forces, and the U.S. are making plans for a much wider conflict to smash these fascists.
