America, the Global Target
"Hoping to lower tensions between the Mus-lim world and the West, British Prime Minister Tony Blair maintained the other day that the world confronts "a clash about civilization," not "a clash between civilizations." But the overriding lesson of events since Sept. 11, 2001, may be that you can't have one without the other.
In radical Isl-amic propaganda, the United States has graduated from being a mere Great Satan out to undermine Iran's ayatollahs to being depicted as a global monster responsible for virtually every crime and failing since the dawn of modern history. Meet the new Jews: the Americans.
Don't misunderstand. Americans have not replaced Jews at the top of the hate parade in Is-lamic countries. But the history of anti-Semitism, a word coined in Germany to provide a bogus scientific basis for prejudice against Jews, and its spread in recent years across the Middle East as an all-purpose explanation of whatever is wrong, should give Americans no cause for complacency.
The centrality of American power to global change -- good and bad, economic and political, topsy and turvy -- inevitably carries with it a heavy burden abroad of resentment and opposition. In the wake of Sept. 11 and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a widespread stereotyping and a visceral hatred that imputes racial characteristics to national policies and actions have also taken hold.
The distemper of these global times can be read in a wide variety of settings, where this new virulent anti-Americanism competes with historical anti-Semitism as a single explanation for the failures and delusions of entire nations..
Second, Americans need to recognize that the problems we face in the Middle East are bigger than the failings or mistakes of Bush & Co. Those problems would not fade quickly if U.S. troops left Iraq tomorrow."
Someone commits a hate crime every hour in the good ole U.S.A.and at least three Jews become hate crime victims.
American history is rife with prejudice against groups and individuals because of their race, including Blacks as well as Jews...However, the 20th century witnessed tremendous progress in outlawing discrimination, and nowadays most upstanding Americans are against any form of bigotry.
But "hate groups" such as Izlamofacists haven't caught up with the times.They must produce stereotypes, the evil Jew, the arrogant American, to justify their unequal treatment,terror and to maintain an atmosphere of rage among their people.
At different times in history hate wore different faces...Today the Jew and the American have earned the spotlight.
The murderous Izlamofacists and the PC-dominated left wing groups who appease these enemies and publicly defame our soldiers, now unite.
Acceptance of differences and tolerance of others , however is human choice. It stems from a deep rooted belief that all people are valuable, that no one is inherently less than another. Not exactly consistent with Izlamofacist indoctrination now is it?
Tony Blair maintained the other day that the world confronts "a clash about civilization,"...
The left wingers are nothing but a poor blend of fascist, Communist, and socialist ideologies ..Couple that with empathy for Izlmofacists...and there is no longer "civilization".
