Updates of the Middle East

Morocco and Spain (NASA, International Space S...

Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda's number two, is calling for a jihad or holy war against Israel. Iran along with Syria explicitly backs Hezbollah and so apparently does Al Qaeda, at least morally. Maybe to the Neocons in the White House this might make a useful pretext to attack Iran or Syria. Although, I can't see the overstretched military being able to hold either of these countries once they're invaded. Meanwhile, these states are Al Qaeda sympathizers and may well work with them on the basis of your enemy is my enemy therefore lets be "friends."

In the meantime, the White House seems to be pursuing a strategy of surrounding its enemies. Such as Iran with military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. For Syria that would Iraq, but if Hezbollah can be routed out of Lebanon, then a pro-US state will border Syria from the other side.

But coming back to Al Qaeda's latest attempt at stirring the pot there was something quite interesting in his statement.

"The war with Israel does not depend on cease-fires ... . It is a Jihad for the sake of God and will last until (our) religion prevails ... from Spain to Iraq." Islam was pushed back from Spain in the 15-16th centuries. Prior to the Muslim invasion it was no doubt European or Christian, but that apparently doesn't count. Once invaded it is claimed forever.

This comment about Spain has been made before. But it goes well beyond kicking the "infidel" out of so called holy countries like Saudi Arabia and other Middle East hot spots. Lets say the West went ahead with these demands, Al Qaeda apparently wouldn't be satisfied until Spain is under Shariah rule as well! Using their own distorted logic they shouldn't really complain about American boots stamping all over the Arab world. They're just doing what Islamic fanatics would do in Spain and no doubt beyond if they had the power. Having said that Spain receives a constant flood of North African Islamic illegals on a daily basis. Immigration and breeding is Islam's ultimate weapon of colonization and in the long-term it is a lot more effective than military action.

The continued radicalization of Islam does not bode well for multiculturalism and racial integration in Europe. In the coming years, one can foresee violent clashes and Islamic terrorism exploding across Europe as they demand that Europeans conform to their wishes. Some 10% of the French population is already Muslim. What happens when that hits 20%? and then 30%? At that point the stark contrasts between the values and belief systems of liberal western democracies with that of a fundamentalist religion will be glaring and deeply unpleasant. I wonder how the wishy washy lefties will talk their way out of that one, especially when their own values are shown the middle finger as well.

Eurabia here we come!
