Ben Stein has articulated the fight between liberal Western democracies and Islamic fascism in a simple and profound way in this American Spectator column.
When the Israelis capture Arabs in their wars, the captured Arabs are well fed, well housed, and eventually returned to their homes. When the Arabs (specifically the Syrians) have captured Israelis, they castrate them, cut off their male organs, decapitate the Israelis, and stuff their male organs in their mouths and leave the bodies on the field. Sometimes they also defecate on the bodies.
To see George W. Bush stand up for Israel while the left whines about totally meaningless multilateralism — which means asking France to defend Israel, sort of like asking Martin Bormann to defend Israel — is to see clear decency versus a waffling, age-old anti-Semitic sickness.
The line of the fight between civilization and barbarism runs right along the Israel-Lebanon non-border. If it’s not won there, it won’t be long until the front line is right here, and then it will be too late. When George Bush stands up for Israel, he stands up for the whole future of mankind. Yes, he has flaws and has made serious mistakes, but right now, he is a hero for the ages.
In the meantime, American gays wail and beat their chests about how terrible it is in the USA for them at the same time they sip their lattes and dance at their favorite clubs. Our community is a serious state of denial just the storm clouds of Islamic fascism are gathering around the world, targeting Americans and gays for death.
