Tehran, Iran, Sep. 04 – Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the jihad against Israel must continue and be strengthened, Iran’s semi-official daily Jomhouri Islami reported on Sunday.

“The only way to fight the Zionist enemy is to continue and increase resistance and jihad”, Ayatollah Khamenei said at a meeting on Saturday with secretary general of the Palestinian group Islamic Jihad, Ramadan Abdullah, the hard-line daily Jomhouri Islami wrote.

Iran’s official policy is to call for the annihilation of the Jewish state. The country’s clerical rulers have been strongly opposed to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ attempts to reach a comprehensive peace settlement with Israel. In August, Israel removed Jewish settlements from the Gaza Strip after decades of occupation.

Khamenei said that the Israeli withdrawal was “the valuable victory” of jihadist groups, whom he urged to continue their struggle.

“The Zionist enemy’s retreat from Gaza is insignificant if you compare it to the demands and rights of the Palestinian nation. But it was a great victory over the enemy and supporters of the Zionist regime. It showed the desperation of the occupiers of Quds (Jerusalem)”, Khamenei said.

Khamenei added that “the failure of the United States in Lebanon and Iraq, and in its political confrontation with Iran” were all signs of “the enemy’s front losing strength”.

Is the US losing strength?

No, but this shows a mentality that makes me nervous. If this nutcase thinks that we are weakened in Iraq, and even more so here at home (Katrina) then he just may decide that this would be a good time to enact his Global Jihad. This man means what he an "ate up" sort of way.

The vote in Palestine was interesting too. They voted in Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Isn't democracy without morality wonderful?

This is a Cold War. It’s a war between the Western free industrialized world and Muslim fundamentalist thought.

In the 50s, 60, 70s and 80s Europe had no choice but to contribute for their own survival. Today many in Europe are hoping the evil goes away, but are not willing to do anything. Even France contributed for the collective defense in Europe. Now we have a situation where “weasels” as properly defined by Rumsfeld are stabbing us in the back.

We are divided today. Look at Schroeder (Germany) and his comments “warning” the US on taking any military action against Iran. What signal do you think that sends?????

France wants to build its mini empire and works against us; the Germans are playing internal election politics with international threats like Iraq and Iran since 2002. The Belgians think they can stick their head in the sand and avoid the issue if they just stay neutral (Which you can’t- the Islamist hates them too). Spain joined the league of appeasers after the Madrid bombings. All these nations contributed in the Cold War. While we have a huge alliance in Iraq, it’s a much bigger issue and outside of Iraq and Afgahnistan we stand alone.

Today we are in Niger, Sudan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Khuzestan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sinai, Republic of Georgia, doing real world killing. We are in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Yemen, Kuwait, Qatar etc. This is a “World War” which is between the Western Industrialized free world and radical Muslim fundamentalists that is being fought in North Africa, the Middle East and Caucasus.

As in the Cold War this will be a multi-decade campaign, where we carry the majority of the weight economically, politically and in blood toll. However, unlike the Cold War, many who are sitting in the boat with us all are choosing to stay on the sidelines, riding our shadow while criticizing us and justifying their do nothing attitude through “schadenfreude”.

Does this make us weaker? Absolutely!
