America is coming dangerously close

Clemons approvingly quotes Hagel:
"I believe America is coming dangerously close to isolating itself in the Muslim world.

If we continue to lose our political capital with the Muslim world, we will lose our credibility, trust and ability to lead a renewed Middle East peace process and see a further erosion in East-West relations. We may be on a very precipitous course toward an East-West collision.

A Judeo-Christian/Muslim split would inflame the world. In 2005, Gallup conducted a poll in ten Muslim countries -- Jordan, Egypt, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Indonesia, Turkey, Morocco and Bangladesh -- to gauge Muslim views of the United States. Gallup's findings were sobering. Gallup found that a substantial majority of the people in eight of the ten countries do not believe that the United States is serious about improving their well being or that the United States is serious about establishing democratic systems in the Muslim world. The only exceptions were Bangladesh. . .where views were evenly split. . .and Morocco. . .where there remains some trust and confidence in the United States. Across all ten Muslim nations, an average of 60 percent viewed the United States unfavorably. In Saudi Arabia, our unfavorable rating was 79 percent. . .in Jordan, 62 percent. . .and in Pakistan, 65 percent. The lowest unfavorable rating was in Lebanon. . .it was 42 percent. I would expect that number has risen in the last year. We must not allow this fracture to occur, and it need not happen.

One of the ten Muslim countries that Gallup polled was Turkey. It is a critically important Muslim country and represents Muslim views of America and the West. It is located at the crossroads between Europe and the Middle East, a geostrategic link of commerce, energy, culture and history between East and West. This Muslim country has a secular democratic government and has been a strong ally of the West since World War II.

Turkey, along with Greece, joined NATO in 1951, two years after NATO was created. A Gallup Poll conducted in October 2006 found that between 2001 and 2005, the percentage of Turks who view the United States as "very unfavorably" jumped from 14 percent to 42 percent. Sixty-two percent of Turks view the United States either "unfavorably" or "very unfavorably." If this trend continues with a new generation of Turks, it will have disastrous consequences for the Middle East, Europe and the United States.

For more than five decades, Turkey has been one of America's indispensable allies. But we are witnessing a dangerous unwinding of a key relationship between the West and Turkey. We must not allow this to become a reality.'
i'll leave the turkish stuff without comment for the moment - but i'm sick to death of the 'clash of civilization' stuff. read this again:
"Gallup's findings were sobering. Gallup found that a substantial majority of the people in eight of the ten countries do not believe that the United States is serious about improving their well being or that the United States is serious about establishing democratic systems in the Muslim world."
i'd argue that a majority of AMERICANS probably don't even believe that. certainly a majority of democrats. and i'd argue that a substantial % of australians/canadians/british don't believe it. europeans too.

heck, a sizable proportion of mouth-breathers probably don't even believe that.

THIRD WORLD WAR said...

APOCALYPTIC CLASH OF CIVILIZATION ISLAM VERSUS CHRISTIANITY IS INEVITABLE: by Kalki Gaur, Editor Times of America. March 3, 2007, Washington DC,
(1) THREAT OF BARBARIAN ISLAMIC CALIPHATE EMPIRE: Christian America believes that Wahhabi, Arab Islamic Terrorists flushed with Oil incomes, aim to establish "an Islamic Caliphate covering a region from Spain, across North Africa, through the Middle East and South Asia, all the way to Indonesia -and it wouldn't stop there. The US Vice-President, Dick Cheney warned so on February 24, 2007 in Australia. Dick Cheney is right, as oil-funded Semite Arab Wahhabi Islamic terrorists "have ambitions of Islamic Empire" that aim to destroy Christian Civilization and the Western economies by Oil-Price Rise and nuclear attacks on Christian Western Europe, to take revenge of western disintegration of Ottoman Caliphate after First world War. United States should invite India as co-imperial power to rule the Iraqi oil colony, otherwise if Arab Islamic Jihadists tasted victory in Iraq, just as they tasted victory over white Christian Russians in Afghanistan, then Arab Islamic Jihadist would look for new missions, not only in Afghanistan but in capitals across the Middle East, Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia and Malaysia and the World civilization as we know would collapse and New Dark Age will descend on the Civilized Christian world. Dick Cheney correctly argued that Free Nations "have a duty" to stand in the way of the insurgents for the sake of their long-term security. America is determined to prevail in Iraq because we understand the consequences of failure". Dick Cheney should realize that without direct military participation by India, the white Christian nations would fail to colonize and impose peace and freedom to Iraqi people, as Arabs can only be governed or ruled by sword and guns. "If USA and NATO coalition withdrew before Iraqis could defend themselves, radical factions would battle for dominance of the country, and snowball into a barbarian invasions of civilized West Europeans, who lack the military capability to face the barbarian Muslim invasions. Like the fall of Roman Empire, the West Europeans would capitulate and Islam would rule over Christian Western Europe again in 21st Century, just as Ottomans ruled over Balkans, Serbs and Greeks for centuries. Without the direct military support of USA and India the Europe would come under the military rule of Muslims in 21st Century. Dick Cheney wise said "The (Islamic) violence would likely spread throughout the country, and be difficult to contain. Having tasted victory in Iraq, then Arab Islamic Jihadists would look for new missions. "Many would head for Afghanistan. Others would set out for capitals across the Middle East, spreading more sorrow and discord as they eliminate dissenters and work to undermine moderate governments." Nuclear-armed Arabian Islamic Jihadist might blow up and destroy liberal Christian civilization, perhaps aided by End of Time Christian believers, who might join Islamic terrorists to fulfill Christian Apocalyptic Teleology, Rupture and Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Christian fundamentalists might inadvertently join Islamic fundamentalists to destroy Western Christian Civilization to impose new Dark Age in Europe.

(2) POLITICS CAUSE OF ISLAM VERSUS CHRISTIANITY CLASH OF CIVILIZATION: More than 30 percent of the White Christian population in Europe and United States firmly believe that violent apocalyptic Clash between White Christian Western civilization and Semite Arab Sunni Islamic Civilization including Iranian Shiite Civilization is inevitable and likely to take place in the early part of 21st Century. Unless Civilized White West does not undertake preemptive military strikes on barbarian uncivilized Arab & Iranian Islam, there is a possibility that White Christianity may cease to exist or lose the war waged by barbarian Islam in the 21st Century. Clash between Islam and west is political, BBC poll finds. Osama bin Laden uses the language of religious conflict, but the BBC poll suggests most people believe politics is the cause of conflict between Islam and the West. Fears of an inevitable "clash of civilizations," Christian West versus Islam are not exaggerated rather highly likely to occur soon. Sizeable population of Christians in the West (more than 50 percent) see positive links between cultures and believe that politics, rather than religion, is the primary cause of international disputes. The politics and oil is the main cause of Islam versus Christianity clash of civilization. The BBC Globescan 2007, public opinion poll of 27 countries for the BBC World Service found the most common view (52%) is that tensions between Muslims and westerners arise from "conflicts about political power and interests" - endorsed by 52% overall. Three in 10 (29%) say such tensions arise mostly from "differences of religion and culture". Either Islamic Oil will make Islamic oil producers oil colonies of the West, or Islamic oil incomes will enable Arab & Iranian Islamic Jihadists to destroy Western civilization in the 21st Century.

(3) FOR OIL AMERICA MUST INVADE ISLAMIC TERRORISM IN IRAN & IRAQ: The national interests of Semite Arabs and Christian West requires that clash of Islam versus Christianity should continue ad infinitum. Unless Christians are able to invade and colonize Islamic oil producers, before oil-funded Arab/Iranian Islamic Jihadist gain access to Pakistani nuclear weapons, the future of the west is doomed. Only common ground that can avert the Islam versus Christianity Apocalypse and Armageddon, is that liberal world empowers Arab women to gain control over political, police and religious power in the Islamic world so that male Arabian/Iranian Jihadis are removed from positions of power, authority and wealth in the Arab world and Islamic world, with the direct help of western military forces and the crusades of democracy in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait and other Islamic nations. When asked if "violent conflict is inevitable" between Muslim and Western cultures or whether "it is possible to find common ground" an average of 56% said that common ground can be found between the two cultures - the most common response in 25 countries. On average almost three in 10 (28%) think violent conflict is inevitable. Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country, is the only country where this view predominates. At least 48 percent of the population believes that it is impossible to find common ground between Islam and Christianity. Rise of Islam inevitably means the decline of Christianity, and vice versa. Strikingly, the poll reflects a belief that violent conflict is more common among Muslims (35%) than Christians (27%) or others (27%). But 52% of the 5,000 Muslims polled say it is possible to find common ground. Amongst the Middle Eastern countries surveyed, that included majorities in Lebanon (68%) and Egypt (54%) and pluralities in Turkey (49%) and the United Arab Emirates (47%). "Many people round the world, more than 30 percent of the population, clearly accept the idea that Islam and the West are caught in an inevitable clash of civilizations. Very sizeable people in UK believe that Islam-Christianity rapproachement is not possible. In the UK, 77% of those polled believe Islam and the West can find common ground. In Italy the figure is 78%, in France 69% but only 49% in Germany. A majority of Americans (64%) think it is possible to find common ground, though about a third (31%) believe violent conflict is inevitable.

(4) AMERICA 2008 IS THEATER OF CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS: Religious Right Conservative Conspiracy created Saudi Wahhabism and Clash of Civilization as an instrument to descend New Global Dark Age over Civilized Christian world, in 21st Century, just as Papacy aligned with barbarians in 415 AD to destroy roman Empire and to usher in barbarian Medieval Dark Age over White Christian Western Europe. American voters in 2008 will decide whether they want barbarian medieval Dark Age in 21st Century. Dear Americans you have a free will to destroy America, with a constitutional wall that separates the State and the Church in 2008. The apocalyptic concept of a "Clash of Civilizations" originated with the Harvard thinker Samuel Huntington, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry J. Kissinger, Papacy, Christian Religious Right conservative conspiracy, who argued that conflict between cultures, especially between the West and Islam, was replacing the old cold war confrontation between East and West. Similar language is used by Osama Bin Laden and other Jihadists that conspiring to overthrow the unpopular House of Al Saud monarchy in Saudi Arabia. The BBC survey found that 58% attributed tensions to intolerant fundamentalist Islamic minorities led by fanatic religious leadership, rather than fundamental differences between Islamic and Christian cultures. In the Global Clash of civilizations, the Papacy and Wahhabi Islam and Shiite Iran, President Bill Clinton, President Jimmy Carter, Senator Barrack Obama, Secretary Henry Kissinger, Secretary Madeleine Albright are on the same side of religious Fundamentalism in the battle lines of Clash of Civilizations. Protestant Christianity, Orthodox Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism, United States and India, Senator Hillary Clinton, Secretary Condi Rice, Rudy Giuiliani, Senator McCain are on the same side of the Clash of Civilizations in the 21st Century, after the India-USA civilian nuclear treaty signed by President Bush and Indian Prime Minister. Every presidential candidate for 2008 elections, whether Democrat or Republican must reject the Religious Right Conservative conspiracy, to avert the descent of a new barbarian Dark Age over the civilized Western world in the 21st Century, and speak against it, even if they lose the elections. American people will respect them more in their defeat than their victory as henchmen of the Religious right Conservative conspiracy. Religious Right conservative conspiracy is greater a Crime and greater evil than Hitler’s Nazism or Cambodian Pol Potism. Let virtuous of America join forces to inflict total defeat on Islamic Terrorism, Religious Fundamentalism in American elections 2008. Religious Fundamentalism personifies Pure Evil and Devil in 21st Century. Let United Nations (UNO) declare Religious Fundamentalism, Extremism, Intolerance and Religious terrorism a cognizable War Crime, punishable with life imprisonment by International Criminal Court at The Hague. All Evil Ideologies must be militarily defeated and politically destroyed in the 21st Century otherwise a New Dark Age might descend on the civilized world. Religious Fundamentalism must not misuse the democracy to destroy democratic society itself. Give political and electoral Death to Extremism, Intolerance, Fundamentalism and Terrorism in coming US elections 2008 and coming election in India. Support President Bush’s Crusade of Democracy to militarily destroy and conquer the homelands and breeding ground of Fundamentalism, Extremism, Intolerance and Terrorism worldwide. Support American military invasions of nuke-seeking fundamentalist Shiite Iran and Arab Sunni Taleban. Support preemptive strikes on Terrorism. Let’s raise the Army of “Good” to defeat the forces of “Bad”. Vote Wisely in 2008 Elections. Do Not Be Misled by Evil Fundamentalism, Extremism, Intolerance and Terrorism. Amen!
